An in-depth study of how each of the Ten Commandments had a historical impact on the development of laws in America and affected the legal philosophy of our government framers. For example, the 4th Commandment-"Keep Holy the Sabbath": PENNSYLVANIA FRAME OF GOVERNMENT, April 25, 1682, Article XXII: "That as often as any day of the month...shall fall upon the first day of the week, commonly called the Lord's Day, the business appointed for that day shall be deferred till the next day, unless in the case of emergency." U.S. CONSTITUTION, 1787, Article I, Section 7, Paragraph 2 "If any Bill shall not be returned by the President within ten days (Sundays excepted) after it shall have been presented to him, the Same shall be a Law" Read how the Ten Commandments affected the views of America's leaders: "The Ten Commandments and the Sermon on the Mount contain my religion" - John Adams, Nov. 4, 1816, letter to Thomas Jefferson. "The fundamental basis of this nation's laws was given to Moses on the Mount. The fundamental basis of our Bill of Rights comes from the teachings we get from Exodus and St. Matthew, from Isaiah and St. Paul. I don't think we emphasize that enough these days." - Harry S Truman, Feb. 15, 1950, Attorney General's Conference. See references to the Ten Commandments in court cases: "The Ten Commandments have had an immeasurable effect on Anglo-American legal development" - U.S. District Court, Crockett v. Sorenson, W.D. Va. (1983) "It is equally undeniable ...that the Ten Commandments have had a significant impact on the development of secular legal codes of the Western World." - U.S. Supreme Court, Stone v. Graham, (1980) (Rehnquist, J., dissenting) An ideal book forstudents, teachers, journalists, writers and those interested in researching the foundations of American law!

Philosophie der Antike

English summary: Active philosophising, that is not limited by current states, but wants to keep the entire reality in its view has to rely on conversation with history. The antique era plays a major role in this, as the Greeks were the first to pose questions that occupy philosophers up to today. They pointed out approaches to resolution, the basic terms are their doing, thus the philosophy of the classical era is appropriate for an introduction to philosophical thinking. The work reaches from Pre-Socratic philosophy (600 B.C.) to the end of Neo-Platonism (600 AD). It emphasises on questions, terms and theses, which remain essential to modern philosophising. German description: Lebendiges Philosophieren, das nicht zeitbedingten Engfuhrungen erliegen, sondern die Fulle der Wirklichkeit im Blick behalten will, ist auf das Gesprach mit der Geschichte angewiesen. Dabei kommt der Antike eine besondere Bedeutung zu. Die Griechen haben als Erste die Fragen gestellt, welche die Philosophie bis heute beschaftigen. Sie haben grundsatzliche Losungsmoglichkeiten aufgezeigt. Die Grundbegriffe der Philosophie sind ihr Werk. Die Philosophie der Antike ist daher wie keine andere als Einfuhrung in das philosophische Denken geeignet.Die Darstellung umfasst den Zeitraum von den Vorsokratikern (6. Jh. v. Chr.) bis zum Ende des Neuplatonismus (6. Jh. n. Chr.). Herausgearbeitet werden besonders Fragestellungen, Begriffe und Thesen, die auch fur heutiges Philosophieren unverzichtbar sind. In der vollig uberarbeiteten Neuauflage wurde ein Kapitel uber Cicero hinzugefugt; die Kapitel uber Platon, Aristoteles und Plotin wurden erweitert. Die ausgewahlten Literaturhinweise informieren uber den neuesten Stand der Forschung.
