Politics properly understood is eclipsed.
Drury urges us to transcend the Biblical view of the world. Instead, she argues in favor of a genuinely liberal, secular, and pluralistic understanding of politics. In Drury's view, these ideas romanticize the gratuitous violence and irrationalism that characterize the postmodern world. Aquinas and modernity : the lost promise of natural law by Shadia B Drury Book 5 editions published in in English and held by WorldCat member libraries worldwide "In this book, Shadia B.
Drury overturns the long-standing reputation of Thomas Aquinas as the most rational exponent of the Christian faith. The book contains criticisms of Aquinas's reconciliation of faith and reason, his defense of papal supremacy, his justification of the Inquisition, his insistence on the persecution of Jews, and his veneration of celibacy. The bleak political implications of Socratic religion by Shadia B Drury 14 editions published between and in English and German and held by WorldCat member libraries worldwide La 4e de couv.
This legend conceals an enigma: How could a sage who was pious and good be so closely associated with the treasonous Alcibiades, who betrayed Athens in the Peloponnesian war? How could Critias and Charmides, who launched a reign of terror in Athens after her defeat, have been among his students and closest associates? The book makes the case for the prosecution, denouncing the religion of Socrates for inciting a radical politics of absolutism and monism that continues to plague Western civilization. It is time to recognize that Socrates was no liberator of the mind, but quite the contrary-he was the architect of a frightful authoritarianism, which continues to manifest itself, not only in Islamic terror, but also in liberal foreign policy.
Defending Homer and the tragic poets, the book concludes that the West has imbibed from the wrong Greeks.
