In this book, a variety of unique sketches have been brought together to reveal the relationship between Time, Self-Reference, and the subjective experience of the Timeless Present. Utilizing the indispensable freedom of the imagination, these images methodically evolve to illustrate that THREE is the irreducible form of all things conditional, and its motion may be imagined as Time, Reason, and among other things, the interdependence of Opposites. Subsequent images further reveal that by annihilating the three "irreducible objects of mind" Time, Self-Reference, and all that is conditional is annihilated along with it leaving the deeper experience of the Timeless Present.

Kafka has been widely praised for his rendering of a universal human condition. Yet his work is also considered to have given voice to the singularity of experience. This paradox in the reception of Kafka engenders questions concerning the interplay between philosophy and literature, especially pertaining to the meaning of the universal and its transformation, which the contributions of this volume address from a variety of perspectives.

Repulsed by evil Nazi practices and desiring to create a better world after the devastation of World War II, in 1948 the UN General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR). Because of the secular imprint of this text, it has faced a series of challenges from the world’s religions, both when it was crafted and in subsequent political and legal struggles. The book mixes philosophical, legal, and archival arguments to make the point that the language of human rights is a valid one to address the world’s disputes. It updates the rationale used by the early UN visionaries and makes it available to twenty-first-century believers and unbelievers alike. The book shows how the debates that informed the adoption of this pivotal normative international text can be used by scholars to make broad and important policy points.

Selected by Choice magazine as an Outstanding Academic Book for 1999 Born of a shared revulsion against the horrors of the Holocaust, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights has become the single most important statement of international ethics. It was inspired by and reflects the full scope of President Franklin Roosevelt's famous four freedoms: "the freedom of speech and expression, the freedom of worship, the freedom from want, and the freedom from fear." Written by a UN commission led by Eleanor Roosevelt and adopted in 1948, the Declaration has become the moral backbone of more than two hundred human rights instruments that are now a part of our world. The result of a truly international negotiating process, the document has been a source of hope and inspiration to thousands of groups and millions of oppressed individuals.
'The love of repetition is in truth the only happy love' So says Constantine Constantius on the first page of Kierkegaard's Repetition. Life itself, according to Kierkegaard's pseudonymous narrator, is a repetition, and in the course of this witty, playful work Constantius explores the nature of love and happiness, the passing of time and the importance of moving forward (and backward). The ironically entitled Philosophical Crumbs pursues the investigation of faith and love and their tense relationship with reason. Written only a year apart, these two works complement each other and give the reader a unique insight into the breadth and substance of Kierkegaard's thought. The first reads like a novel and the second like a Platonic dialogue, but both engage, in different ways, the same challenging issues. These are the first translations to convey the literary quality and philosophical precision of the originals. They were not intended, however, for philosophers, but for anyone who feels drawn to the question of the ultimate truth of human existence and the source of human happiness. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.

In this booklet, the author looks at the possibility that the universe is romantic (rather than religious) in nature, its fundamental characteristic being that of a procreant impulse between a man and a woman.
Members Of The Universal Class, Meet One Of You is based on a true story of a young man that was scarred very early in life, who set out to grasp the wonders of it. In the second grade, I was retained even though I had the grades to pass. Being a minority in a predominately white school, the administration told my mother, that based on my attitude, that I would be retained at some point in life and that the earlier, the better. I set out to have a universal understanding of all subjects. I came to the understanding that a chain is only as strong as its weakest link and tried to master all courses of the educational institutions in America. This base filtered into my social life. I wanted to be all I could be. By the twelfth grade the community created an award, ‘The Black Educators N.A.S.D. Award’ (the first and only time it was presented). Also in the twelfth grade I had excelled in sports to where I anchored the fastest mile relay team in the country and had found my wife to be (the greatest love story ever told). This book is the development of a child based on this incident, which has led me to a life time marriage with my wife (the cheerleader), training with and coaching world record holders and Olympic Champions, obtaining degrees and educational experiences from all parts of America, employment with one of the top ten companies in the world and involvement in Civil Rights that led to an invitation to the White House. It is also and most of all, a Testimony of how God delivered me through a heart transplant operation. Please enjoy as you read. The Author
