Lessons from Aquinas: A Resolution of the Problem of Faith and Reason
By author: Creighton Rosental
Publisher: Mercer University Press
Product Code: H829
ISBN: 9780881462531
Product Format: Hardback
Availability: In stock
Price: $45.00
Thomas Aquinas has long been understood to have reconciled faith and reason. Typically, he is understood as having provided justification for faith by means of proof. In this book, Rosental argues that Aquinas's account of faith is not simply an account of justified belief, at least as it is typically considered in contemporary philosophy. This book is an erudite and accessible reading of this most fundamental issue in Thomistic studies.

Mirror’s Fathom is the story of Tycho Wilhelm Lund—anarchist, pirate, and thief of a legendary mirror. Tycho is also a great-nephew of the Danish philosopher Søren Kierkegaard and is, when the novel begins, a mild-mannered antiques dealer who is asked to assess the value of some furniture at the home of Regine Schlegel, Kierkegaard’s famously jilted former love. Upon his arrival, Tycho—who has no interest in philosophy—finds himself at a meeting of the Kierkegaard Circle, a group faithfully reading aloud Kierkegaard’s works. There he meets, and falls for, Countess Juliana Sophie, herself a passionate follower of Kierkegaard’s thinking and self-appointed mistress of the “School for Selves.”

No Greater Monster nor Miracle than Myself: The Political Philosophy of Michel de Montaigne
Product Code: P487
ISBN: 9780881464856
Product Format: Paperback
Availability: In stock
Price: $24.00
Michel de Montaigne begins his magisterial ESSAIS by telling his readers that he, himself, is the matter of his book. He says that he has written himself so that after death he could remain in the world with those who knew and loved him. Montaigne’s intimate project, meant to be read by friends, has emerged as one of the most surprising and compelling accounts of the human condition ever written. This volume of essays, based on papers presented at The A.V. Elliott Conference for Great Books and Ideas sponsored by Mercer University’s McDonald Center for America’s Founding Principles, focuses on the outward oriented political philosophy of Montaigne, which is informed by his probing introspection and thoroughly unsentimental self-observation. Contributors include Ann Hartle, Daniel Cullen, Christine Henderson, Eduardo Velasquez, Kevin Honeycutt, and Christopher Edelman.

Of Sympathy and Selfishness: The Moral and Political Philosophy of Adam Smith
Product Code: P506
ISBN: 9780881465297
Availability: In stock
Price: $24.00

Adam Smith is best known for his magisterial Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations, but his other great work, The Theory of Moral Sentiments, is as deserving of serious study. In this volume, scholars in economics, philosophy, and political science take up questions that range throughout Smith’s work, seeking to find connections between his moral theory and political economy. 

This volume, based on the 2013 A. V. Elliot Conference on Great Books and Ideas at Mercer University, represents a great diversity of disciplinary perspectives. Its authors take up a wide range of concerns that exist in the intersection of Smith’s political and moral theory. It also includes several articles that attempt to compare his work to thinkers that preceded and followed him, coming from as far back in the tradition as the Italian Renaissance, and moving forward in history to claim Smith’s relevance for contemporary research in experimental economics.
