Here are the virtues everyone was taught in Sunday school but have totally forgotten about. Eighteen conservative writers offer their insights on why both the classical and everyday virtues are still important... and why readers shouldn't get carried away with them.
Well-known works by such authors as Aesop, Dickens, Tolstoy, Shakespeare, and Baldwin are presented to teach virtues, including compassion, courage, honesty, friendship, and faith.
Economic Affairs, where his publishing program was one of the principal influences on governments all around the world, persuading them to liberaliee their economies. "The Virtues of Capitalism", the inaugural volume in Liberty Funds Collected Works of Arthur Seldon, presents the foundation of Seldons views and theories of capitalism and its alternatives. Entitled "Corrigible Capitalism; Incorrigible Socialism", part one of "The Virtues of Capitalism" was first published in 1980. It explains why, Seldon believes, 'private enterprise is imperfect but redeemable', but the state economy promises the earth, and ends in coercion to conceal its incurable failure. The second part, 'Capitalism', is widely considered to be Seldons finest work. It covers a wide range of the classical liberal thought that inspired the movement toward free-market reforms in Great Britain in opposition to the collectivist tide of socialism. In an understandable and eloquent manner, Seldon offers 'Capitalism' as a celebration rather than a defence of classical liberalism.
At a time when the chasm between academic scholarship and theological reflection seems to be widening, both the academic guild and the church share in common an uncertainty over how to study and appropriate the wisdom literature of the Old Testament. On the one hand, mainline denominations have for the most part avoided the books of Proverbs, Job, and Ecclesiastes in their preaching and educational curriculum. Biblical scholars, on the other hand, have labored hard to identify the theological significance and thematic center of the wisdom literature, but without much consensus. In Character in Crisis, William P. Brown helps to break the impasse by demonstrating that the aim of the Bible's wisdom literature is the formation of moral character - both for individuals and for the community. Brown traces the theme of moral identity and conduct throughout the wisdom literature of the Old Testament, with a concluding reflection on the Epistle of James in the New Testament, and explores a range of issues that includes literary characterization, moral discourse, worldview, and the theology of the ancient sages. He examines the ways in which central characters such as God, wisdom, and human beings are profiled in the wisdom books and shows how their characterizations impart ethical meaning to the reading community, both ancient and modern.
In the aftermath of the recent economic downturn, some observers leveled harsh criticism against free-market economies. In the spring of 2009, for instance, an article in the The London Telegraph insisted that the industrialized West must re-articulate its moral case for market capitalism. Additionally, numerous commentators proclaimed the days of unfettered markets to be over. In this timely and balanced book, Austin Hill and Scott Rae agree with capitalism's critics that the economy is essentially a moral issue, but they argue that free markets are by-and-large the solution to financial disasters rather than the cause. Though they recognize that there are legitimate criticisms of the market system -- and real limits to what it can and should accomplish -- the authors further conclude that capitalism both depends upon and sustains classic Judeo-Christian virtues better than any of its rival systems. Thoughtful and engaging, this book pushes against the tide of current public opinion and some of the administration's proposed economic policies with a principled defense of capitalism.
A collection of essays that sets forth the moral principles of Objectivism, Ayn Rand's controversial, groundbreaking philosophy. Since their initial publication, Rand's fictional works—Anthem, The Fountainhead, and Atlas Shrugged—have had a major impact on the intellectual scene. The underlying theme of her famous novels is her philosophy, a new morality—the ethics of rational self-interest—that offers a robust challenge to altruist-collectivist thought. Known as Objectivism, her divisive philosophy holds human life—the life proper to a rational being—as the standard of moral values and regards altruism as incompatible with man's nature. In this series of essays, Rand asks why man needs morality in the first place, and arrives at an answer that redefines a new code of ethics based on the virtue of selfishness.
