Intellectual networks in Timurid Iran : Sharaf al-Dīn ʻAlī Yazdī and the Islamicate republic of letters
Binbaş, İlker Evrim, author
Cambridge, United Kingdom : Cambridge University Press, 2016
The making of a Timurid intellectual -- Informal intellectual networks in Timurid Iran -- The prophet of Cairo and the master of Isfahan -- The articulation of a princely political discourse -- . Writing history in the Timurid Empire -- The king's two lineages: the evolution of a politico-theological idea.

"By focusing on the works and intellectual network of the Timurid historian Sharaf al Dīn ʻAlī Yazdī (d.1454), this book presents a holistic view of intellectual life in fifteenth century Iran. İlker Evrim Binbaş argues that the intellectuals in this period formed informal networks which transcended political and linguistic boundaries, and spanned an area from the western fringes of the Ottoman State to bustling late medieval metropolises such as Cairo, Shiraz, and Samarkand. The network included an Ottoman revolutionary, a Mamluk prophet, and a Timurid occultist, as well as physicians, astronomers, devotees of the secret sciences, and those political figures who believed that the network was a force to be taken seriously. Also discussing the formation of an early modern Islamicate republic of letters, this book offers fresh insights on the study of intellectual history beyond the limitations imposed by nationalist methodologies, established genres, and recognized literary traditions"--

Appetites for thought : philosophers and food
Onfray, Michel, 1959- author
London : Reaktion Books Ltd, [2015]
Introduction: the banquet of the omnivores -- Diogenes; or, the taste of octopus -- Rousseau; or, the Milky Way -- Kant; or, ethical alcoholism -- Fourier; or, the pivotal little pie -- Nietzsche; or, the sausages of the anti-Christ -- Marinetti; or, the excited pig -- Sartre; or, the revenge of the crustaceans -- Conclusion: the gay science of eating.

"[O]ffers up a delectable intellectual challenge: can we better understand the concepts of philosophers if we look at their culinary choices? Guiding us around the philosopher's banquet table with erudition, wit, and irreverence, Michel Onfray offers surprising insights on foods ranging from fillet of cod to barley soup, from sausage to wine and coffee. Tracing the edible obsessions of philosophers from Diogenes to Sartre, Onfray considers how their ideas relate to their diets. Would Diogenes have been an opponent of civilization without his taste for raw octopus? Would Rousseau have been such a proponent of frugality if his daily menu had included something more than dairy products? Nietzsche was grumpy about bad cooks and the retardation of human evolution, and Sartre was repelled by shellfish because they are 'food buried in an object, and you have to pry them out'"--Back cover.

Chinese philosophy : an introduction = Zhe xue
Littlejohn, Ronnie, 1949- author
London ; I.B. Tauris, 2016
Ontology: Questions about the Nature of Reality -- Epistemology: Questions about the Nature and Scope of Knowledge -- Value Theory: Questions about the Nature and Application of Morality -- Political Philosophy: Questions about the Nature and Purpose of Government -- Guide to Philosophers and Significant Works -- Quick Guide to Pronunciation -- Comparative Chronology of Philosophers

The philosophical traditions of China have arguably influenced more human beings than any other. China has been the home not only of its indigenous philosophical traditions of Confucianism and Daoism, but also of uniquely modified forms of Buddhism. As Ronnie L Littlejohn shows, these traditions have for thousands of years formed the bedrock of the longest continuing civilization on the planet; and Chinese philosophy has profoundly shaped the institutions, social practices and psychological character of East and Southeast Asia. The author here surveys the key texts and philosophical systems of Chinese thinkers in a completely original and illuminating way. Ranging from the Han dynasty to the present, he discusses the six classical schools of Chinese philosophy (Yin-Yang, Ru, Mo, Ming, Fa and Dao-De); the arrival of Buddhism in China and its distinctive development; the central figures and movements from the end of the Tang dynasty to the introduction into China of Western thought; and the impact of Chinese philosophers ranging from Confucius and Laozi to Tu Weiming on their equivalents in the West. -- Provided by publisher.

Body, ritual and identity : a new interpretation of the early Qing Confucian Yan Yuan (1635-1704)
Yang, Jui-sung, 1963-
Leiden ; Brill, [2016]
Introduction: Why Yan Yuan? -- The formation of a radical anti-Zhu Xi Confucian -- Discontent with "culture" : Yan Yuan's reconfiguration of Confucian learning -- Yan-Li School reconsidered : Li Gong as "disciple" -- From oblivion to glory : the revival of Yan Yuan in modern China -- Conclusion: Body, ritual and identity.

"Yan Yuan (1635-1704) has long been a controversial figure in the study of Chinese intellectual and cultural history. Although marginalized in his own time largely due to his radical attack on Zhu Xi (1130-1200), Yan became elevated as a great thinker during the early twentieth century because of the drastic changes of modern Chinese intellectual climate. In Body, Ritual and Identity : A New Interpretation of the Early Qing Confucian Yan Yuan (1635-1704), Yang Jui-sung has demonstrated that the complexity of Yan's ideas and his hatred for Zhu Xi in particular need be interpreted in light of his traumatic life experiences, his frustration over the fall of the Ming dynasty, and anxiety caused by the civil service examination system. Moreover, he should be better understood as a cultural critic of the lifestyle of educated elites of late imperial China. By critically analyzing Yan's changing intellectual status and his criticism that the elite lifestyle was unhealthy and feminine, this new interpretation of Yan Yuan serves to shed new light on our understanding of the features as well as problems of educated elite culture in late imperial China"--Provided by publisher.--

Existential Monday : Philosophical essays
Fondane, Benjamin, 1898-1944
New York : New York Review Books, [2016]
Introduction -- A Note on the Text -- Acknowledgments -- Existential Monday and the Sunday of History -- Preface for the Present Moment -- Man Before History, or, The Sound and the Fury -- Boredom -- Selected Bibliography -- Notes.

"Benjamin Fondane--who was born and educated in Romania, moved as an adult to Paris, lived for a time in Buenos Aires, where he was close to Victoria Ocampo, Jorge Luis Borges's friend and publisher, and died in Auschwitz--was an artist and thinker who found in every limit, in every border, "a torture and a spur." Poet, critic, man of the theater, movie director, Fondane was the most daring of the existentialists, a metaphysical anarchist, affirming individual against those great abstractions that limit human freedom--the State, History, the Law, the Idea. Existential Monday is the first selection of his philosophical work to appear in English. Here Fondane, until now little-known except to specialists, emerges as one of the great French philosophers of the twentieth century"--

Beatific enjoyment in medieval scholastic debates : the complex legacy of Saint Augustine and Peter Lombard
Kitanov, Severin
Lanham [MD] : Lexington Books, [2014]
Beatific Enjoyment in Medieval Scholastic Debates examines the religious concept of enjoyment as discussed by scholastic theologians in the Latin Middle Ages. Severin Valentinov Kitanov argues that central to the concept of beatific enjoyment (fruitio beatifica) is the distinction between the terms enjoyment and use (frui et uti) found in Saint Augustine's treatise On Christian Learning. Then Peter Lombard, a twelfth-century Italian theologian, chose the enjoyment of God to serve as an opening topic of his Sentences and thereby set in motion an enduring scholastic discourse. Kitanov examines the nature of volition and the relationship between volition and cognition. He also explores theological debates on the definition of enjoyment: whether there are different kinds and degrees of enjoyment, whether natural reason unassisted by divine revelation can demonstrate that beatific enjoyment is possible, whether beatific enjoyment is the same as pleasure, whether it has an intrinsic cognitive character, and whether the enjoyment of God in heaven is a free or un-free act.
