Regnery Publishing, Inc., January 1992. Paper Back Paper Back. Very Good. Seminal political philosopher and historian Russell Kirk places the roots of American order some two thousand years Before its eighteenth-century founding. He offers here (now in its fourth edition) an extremely learned yet lucidly written rendering of the origins of the American political and social polity. The major epochs of political evolution are well outlined -- ancient Hebrew, Greek, Roman, early and medieval Christian, Reformation -- followed by a detailed examination of the American experiment and the appropriation by the Founders of their ancient predecessors' ideas and achievements. All this is done within the framework of Kirk's conviction (in step with Simone Weil's The Need for Roots) that ''before a person can live tolerably with himself or with others, he must know order. If we lack order in the soul and order in society, we dwell 'in a land of darkness, as darkness itself,' the Book of Job puts it; 'and of the shadow of death, without any order, and where light is as darkness.''' Yet even order can be of a higher kind, of a communal substance which ''declares the diginity of man... founded upon the practical experience of human beings over many centuries, and upon the judgments of men of vision and intellect who have preceded us in time.'' Kirk's study is a reinvigorating force, placing him amidst the ranks of these predecessors by his love of ''the permanent things'' and giving his work that ''peculiar quality of being simultaneously timeless and ever timely, at once transcendent and relevant'' (Forrest McDonald in the foreword). Light cover wear, firm binding, unmarked text., Regnery Publishing, Inc., Chicago, Illinois, U.S.A.: University of Chicago Press. Fine in Fine dust jacket. 2004. Hardcover. 0226301176 . DJ in mylar. ; "If you do not know where you come from, you will always be a child." Cicero wasn't talking about being a child in the sense of enjoying life in a state of ignorant bliss. He was, rather, adamant that those who don't understand their origins are consigned to a life without power or authority, without the ability to act fully in the world. Love, Sex & Tragedy is acclaimed classicist Simon Goldhill's corrective to our state of ignorance. Lifting the veil on our inheritance of classical traditions, Goldhill offers a witty, engrossing survey of the Greek and Roman roots of everything from our overwhelming mania for "hard bodies" to our political systems. Marx, Clark Gable, George W. Bush, Oscar Wilde, and Freud—Goldhill's range here is enormous, and he takes great delight in tracing both follies and fundamental philosophical questions through the centuries and continents to the birthplace of Western civilization as we know it. Underlying his brisk and learned excursions through history and art is the foundational belief, following Cicero, that learning about the classics makes a critical difference to our self-understanding. Whether we are considering the role of religion in contemporary society, our expectations about the boundaries between public and private life, or even how we spend our free time, recognizing the role of the classics is integral to our comprehension of modern life and our place in it. ; 336 pages ., University of Chicago Press, 2004
