A Philosophical Enquiry into the Origin of our Ideas of the Sublime and the Beautiful (Paperback, 2nd Revised edition): Edmund... A Philosophical Enquiry into the Origin of our Ideas of the Sublime and the Beautiful (Paperback, 2nd Revised edition)
Edmund Burke; Edited by Paul Guyer
R214 R141 Discovery Miles 1 410 Save R73 (34%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

'Pain and pleasure are simple ideas, incapable of definition.' In 1757 the 27-year-old Edmund Burke argued that our aesthetic responses are experienced as pure emotional arousal, unencumbered by intellectual considerations. In so doing he overturned the Platonic tradition in aesthetics that had prevailed from antiquity until the eighteenth century, and replaced metaphysics with psychology and even physiology as the basis for the subject. Burke's theory of beauty encompasses the female form, nature, art, and poetry, and he analyses our delight in sublime effects that thrill and excite us. His revolution in method continues to have repercussions in the aesthetic theories of today, and his revolution in sensibility has paved the way for literary and artistic movements from the Gothic novel through Romanticism, twentieth-century painting, and beyond. In this new edition Paul Guyer conducts the reader through Burke's Enquiry, focusing on its place in the history of aesthetics and highlighting its innovations, as well as its influence on many subsequent authors from Kant and Schiller to Ruskin and Nietzsche. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe.

Cambridge Texts in the History of Political Thought - Revolutionary Writings: Reflections on the Revolution in France and the First Letter on a Regicide Peace (Paperback, New)
Edmund Burke; Edited by Iain Hampsher-Monk
R502 Discovery Miles 5 020 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Burke's Reflections on the Revolution in France was the first sustained theoretical critique of the French Revolution; and is now recognised as the classic statement of modern conservatism. Reflections surveys the British political culture of traditionalism, gradualism and deference, and contrasts it with the French Revolutionaries' programme of appeal to abstract right, transformational change and popular agency. Ultimately Burke advocated a counterrevolutionary war and the restoration of the French monarchy. This accessible new edition brings together for the first time Burke's first and last published thoughts on the revolution including as it does the first Letter on a Regicide Peace; a work that has contributed to a particular view of international society. Featuring a comprehensive introduction and extensive annotations, Iain Hampsher-Monk's edition helps readers new to Burke to better understand the historical, political and philosophical context behind his writings, and the significance of contemporary and classical allusions.

Islam and World History - The Ventures of Marshall Hodgson (Paperback): Edmund Burke, Robert J Mankin Islam and World History - The Ventures of Marshall Hodgson (Paperback)
Edmund Burke, Robert J Mankin
R473 R443 Discovery Miles 4 430 Save R30 (6%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Published in 1974, Marshall Hodgson's The Venture of Islam was a watershed moment in the study of Islam. By locating the history of Islamic societies in a global perspective, Hodgson challenged the orientalist paradigms that had stunted the development of Islamic studies and provided an alternative approach to world history. Edited by Edmund Burke III and Robert Mankin, Islam and World History explores the complexity of Hodgson's thought, the daring of his ideas, and the global context of his world historical insights into, among other themes, Islam and world history, gender in Islam, and the problem of Muslim universality. In our post-9/11 world, Hodgson's historical vision and moral engagement have never been more relevant. A towering achievement, Islam and World History will prove to be the definitive statement on Hodgson's relevance in the twenty-first century and will introduce his influential work to a new generation of readers.

The Ethnographic State - France and the Invention of Moroccan Islam (Hardcover): Edmund Burke The Ethnographic State - France and the Invention of Moroccan Islam (Hardcover)
Edmund Burke
R928 R701 Discovery Miles 7 010 Save R227 (24%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Alone among Muslim countries, Morocco is known for its national form of Islam, "Moroccan Islam." This path-breaking study, however, reveals that Moroccan Islam was actually invented in the early twentieth century by French ethnographers and colonial officers who were influenced by British colonial practices in India. Between 1900 and 1920, these researchers compiled a social inventory of Morocco, which in turn led to the emergence of a new object of study, Moroccan Islam, and a new field, Moroccan Studies. In the process they reinvented Morocco as a modern polity and resurrected the monarchy. This book will be of interest to scholars and readers interested in questions around orientalism and empire, colonialism and modernity, and the invention of traditions.

R388 R313 Discovery Miles 3 130 Save R75 (19%) Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

The intellectual wellspring of modern political conservatism, Edmund Burke is also considered a significant figure in aesthetic theory and cultural studies. As a member of the House of Commons during the late eighteenth century, Burke shook Parliament with his powerful defense of the American Revolution and the rights of persecuted Catholics in England and Ireland; his indictment of the English rape of the Indian subcontinent; and, most famously, his denouncement of English Jacobin sympathizers during the French Revolution. The Portable Edmund Burke is the fullest one- volume survey of Burke's thought, with sections devoted to his writings on history and culture, politics and society, the American Revolution, Ireland, colonialism and India, and the French Revolution. This volume also includes excerpts from his letters and an informative Introduction surveying Burke's life, ideas, and his reception and influence in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

Struggle and Survival in the Modern Middle East (Paperback, 2nd Revised edition): Edmund Burke, David Yaghoubian Struggle and Survival in the Modern Middle East (Paperback, 2nd Revised edition)
Edmund Burke, David Yaghoubian
R639 R492 Discovery Miles 4 920 Save R147 (23%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Until the 1993 first edition of this book, one thing had been missing in Middle Eastern history - depiction of the lives of ordinary Middle Eastern men and women, peasants, villagers, pastoralists, and urbanites. Now updated and revised, the second edition has added six new portraits of individuals set in the contemporary period. It features twenty-four brief biographies drawn from throughout the Middle East - from Morocco to Afghanistan - in which the reader is provided with vantage points from which to understand modern Middle Eastern history 'from the bottom up.' Spanning the past 160-plus years and reflecting important transformations, these stories challenge elite-centered accounts of what has occurred in the Middle East and illuminate the previously hidden corners of a largely unrecorded world.

A Philosophical Enquiry into the Sublime and Beautiful (Paperback, Revised): Edmund Burke A Philosophical Enquiry into the Sublime and Beautiful (Paperback, Revised)
Edmund Burke; Introduction by David Womersley; Notes by David Womersley
R262 R182 Discovery Miles 1 820 Save R80 (31%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

A classic of modern aesthetics, the Philosophical Enquiry into the Origin of our Ideas of the Sublime and the Beautiful remains both influential and engaging.

From the awesome thrill of the sublime to the delightful perfection of the beautiful, Edmund Burke (1729–97) gives an involving account of our sensory, imaginative and judgemental process and its relation to artistic pleasure. This edition also includes several of Burke’s early political works which illustrate that, despite his later opposition to the Revolution in France, he took a liberal and humane view of society and government.

This authoritative edition has securely established texts and, in his illuminating introduction, David Womersley clearly reveals the cross-pollination of Burke’s aesthetic and political thinking: the power exercised by art and the art of exercising power.

R113 R76 Discovery Miles 760 Save R37 (33%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Written at a time when most of Europe supported the French Revolution, Edmund Burke's prescient and, at the time, controversial denunciation of its mob rule predicted the Terror, began the modern conservative tradition and still serves as a warning to those who seek to reshape societies through violence. Throughout history, some books have changed the world. They have transformed the way we see ourselves - and each other. They have inspired debate, dissent, war and revolution. They have enlightened, outraged, provoked and comforted. They have enriched lives - and destroyed them. Now Penguin brings you the works of the great thinkers, pioneers, radicals and visionaries whose ideas shook civilization and helped make us who we are.

Reflections on the Revolution in France (Paperback): Edmund Burke Reflections on the Revolution in France (Paperback)
Edmund Burke; Edited by Conor Cruise O'Brien
R237 R164 Discovery Miles 1 640 Save R73 (31%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Burke's Reflections (1790) predicted with uncanny accuracy the Reign of Terror which lay ahead . . . The book, however, is far more than a supremely eloquent piece of occasional writing. For Burke is without doubt the foremost conservative British political thinker: in his support for piecemeal reform rather than revolutionary change, in his sceptical belief in expediency and practical wisdom rather than abstract theorizing, in his defence of property, religion and traditional institutions. On all these topics Burke gave a definitive expression to a set of attitudes still at the heart of today's controversies. And yet Burke was no mere unthinking reactionary, a useful ally in Cold War propaganda; rather, as Conor Cruise O'Brien shows in his brilliant introduction, he was an Irishman with a good deal of sympathy for the 'revolutionary' Catholic cause - a latent sympathy which, paradoxically, may explain some of the unparalleled power of this great work.

Since around 1500 C.E., humans have shaped the global environment in ways that were previously unimaginable. Bringing together leading environmental historians and world historians, this book offers an overview of global environmental history throughout this remarkable 500-year period. In eleven essays, the contributors examine the connections between environmental change and other major topics of early modern and modern world history: population growth, commercialization, imperialism, industrialization, the fossil fuel revolution, and more. Rather than attributing environmental change largely to European science, technology, and capitalism, the essays illuminate a series of culturally distinctive, yet often parallel developments arising in many parts of the world, leading to intensified exploitation of land and water. The wide range of regional studies - including some in Russia, China, the Middle East, India, Southeast Asia, Latin America, Southern Africa, and Western Europe - together with the book's broader thematic essays makes "The Environment and World History" ideal for courses that seek to incorporate the environment and environmental change more fully into a truly integrative understanding of world history. The contributors include Michael Adas, William Beinart, Edmund Burke-III, Mark Cioc, Kenneth Pomeranz, Mahesh Rangarajan, John F. Richards, Lise Sedrez, and Douglas R. Weiner.
