EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

This book explores how a generation of American thinkers and reformers - abolitionists, former slaves, feminists, labor advocates, jurists, moralists, and social scientists - drew on contract to condemn the evils of chattel slavery as well as to measure the virtues of free society. Their arguments over the meaning of slavery and freedom were grounded in changing circumstances of labor and home life on both sides of the Mason-Dixon line. At the heart of these arguments lay the problem of defining which realms of self and social existence could be rendered market commodities and which could not. From Bondage to Contract reveals how the problem of distinguishing between what was saleable and what was not reflected the ideological and social changes wrought by the concurrence of abolition in the South and burgeoning industrial capitalism in the North.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Spinoza rejects fundamental tenets of received morality, including the notions of Providence and free will. Yet he retains rich theories of good and evil, virtue, perfection, and freedom. Building interconnected readings of Spinoza's accounts of imagination, error, and desire, Michael LeBuffe defends a comprehensive interpretation of Spinoza's enlightened vision of human excellence. Spinoza holds that what is fundamental to human morality is the fact that we find things to be good or evil, not what we take those designations to mean. When we come to understand the conditions under which we act-that is, when we come to understand the sorts of beings that we are and the ways in which we interact with things in the world-then we can recast traditional moral notions in ways that help us to attain more of what we find to be valuable. For Spinoza, we find value in greater activity. Two hazards impede the search for value. First, we need to know and acquire the means to be good. In this respect, Spinoza's theory is a great deal like Hobbes's: we strive to be active, and in order to do so we need food, security, health, and other necessary components of a decent life. There is another hazard, however, that is more subtle. On Spinoza's theory of the passions, we can misjudge our own natures and fail to understand the sorts of beings that we really are. So we can misjudge what is good and might even seek ends that are evil. Spinoza's account of human nature is thus much deeper and darker than Hobbes's: we are not well known to ourselves, and the self-knowledge that is the foundation of virtue and freedom is elusive and fragile.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

The stallion cries of battle began to rattle through the ranks far and wide. Now the smallings had nothing to hide. They would march behind the royal knights into the dawn. They would approach Vastious soon as the sun careen through the sky reaching higher and higher. The smallings would capture fate in their grasp and throw no caution to the wind. Now they were crossing the mountains of endless snow. They were in the valley mountain pass that was fiercely defended by Fluria and Vastious as a gateway to their kingdom of Pleth-Era. The battle was beginning. There was an army of big foot snowmen marching toward them now. The tall hair creatures were towering over them even on horseback. The big foot soldiers were ten feet tall or more. They felt like David and Goliath making an impossible match on the battlefield. Now the smallings would have to face these monstrous creatures of myth and ferocity as the forged toward the city past the valley. The monsters were so massive that they needed no swords, but they had swords as long as a horse that they swung with the speed and skill of men who had trained since boyhood with the blade. The big foot had no need for bow and arrow but they aimed gargantuan flaming and poisoned arrows at the army of royal warriors and smallings. The sky rained fire in the ferocious snow covered air. The wintry wind slapped their faces with angry open fists and froze their breath. Even the thick coating of hair on the smallings bodies was not enough to protect them from the cold, though they had the fearsome skin of werewolves and the thrashing teeth of blood-drinking vampires. The battle raged on as hundreds of big foot emerged hidden in the mountains of endless snow. The cruel cold of murder and death echoed in the wind, as the bloody breeze did blow. The screams of lives coming to an end were endless and hollow.
