The Female Drama: The Philosophical Feminine in the Soul of Plato’s Republic
Publisher: Mercer University Press
Product Code: H987
ISBN: 9780881467437
Availability: In stock
Price: $35.00
Plato's most magisterial dialogue, the REPUBLIC, takes up the question "what is justice," and its central image is an imaginary city constructed in speech designed to aid in this inquiry. ...Like all of the images and arguments in the REPUBLIC, the Female Drama of the city in speech has meaning both for political and individual justice, but there has been no systematic inquiry into the central books of the REPUBLIC for their meaning for individual justice. That is the ambition of this book.

The expansion of human knowledge that springs from the inquiries of science can become a profound resource for our faith traditions. We need not choose between faith and reason as the rejection of reason often leads to a failure of faith. The high calling of the scientific community is to bring the realities of our universe into sharper focus. Our faith traditions enable us to discern meaning and understanding in our lives that cannot be realized by examining facts alone. Both the knowledge we are gaining from science along with the deep insights that we gain from our faith stories provide light and encouragement for navigating our human journeys.

Tommy Malone, Trial Lawyer: And the Light Shone Through...The Guiding Hand Shaping One of America’s Greatest Trial Lawyers
By author: Vincent Coppola   Foreword by: John C. Bell Jr.
Publisher: Mercer University Press
Product Code: H952
ISBN: 9780881466621
Availability: In stock
Price: $30.00
The core question of this book: how a great lawyer who comes to represent important causes, emerges out of the racist, paternalistic, and self-perpetuating establishment of rural Georgia in the 1950s? What about Tommy Malone led him to take on the power structure in his community and begin representing people who were injured against prominent doctors and hospitals? It wasn't money because there wasn't any money to be made at that time. The answers are as varied as human experience, but undoubtedly, Malone sensed a "guiding hand" directing him to the good. There was no teacher or mentor to illumine the path forward, just the gradual accretion of experience, knowledge, insight, and pain on a sensitive soul, kindling fierce passion and righteous anger.
