History of Modern Philosophy: From Nicolas of Cusa to the Present Time


Title: History of Modern Philosophy: From Nicolas of Cusa to the Present Time
Author: Richard Falckenberg
ISBN: 978-93-82395-05-8
Language: English
Binding: Hard Cover
Edition: 2015

About the Author:
Richard Falkenberg was a German philosopher. He dealt with the history of philosophy. He wrote a history of modern philosophy, which was often reprinted and was kept up to date by him. Through this writing, and by his professorship in Erlangen, he coined as others thought of the history of philosophy. He attacked the truth of philosophy is not dogmatic, but historically and striving for harmony and justice. He belonged to a critical idealism to. He also wrote six articles for the General German biography.

About the Book:
Systems of philosophy are not as dependent on our progressive knowledge of facts as the theories of natural science, and change less quickly; notwithstanding their mutual conflicts, and in spite of the talk about discarded standpoints, they possess in a measure the permanence of classical works of art, they retain for all time a certain relative validity. The thought of Plato, of Aristotle, and of the heroes of modern philosophy is ever proving anew its fructifying power. Nowhere do we find such instructive errors as in the sphere of philosophy; nowhere is the new so essentially a completion and development of the old, even though it deem itself the whole and assume a hostile attitude toward its predecessors; nowhere is the inquiry so much more important than the final result; nowhere the categories "true and false" so inadequate. The spirit of the time and the spirit of the people, the individuality of the thinker, disposition, will, fancy-all these exert a far stronger influence on the development of philosophy, both by way of promotion and by way of hindrance, than in any other department of thought.

Sinking of the Titanic and Great Sea Disasters


Title: Sinking of the Titanic and Great Sea Disasters 
Author: Logan Marshall
ISBN: 978-93-82395-67-6
Language: English
Edition: 2015
Binding: Hard Cover
Category: History

About the Author:
Logan Marshall (born 1884), was the pen name of Logan Howard-Smith of Germantown, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Howard-Smith attended the University of Pennsylvania and graduated in 1905. Upon graduation he took a position as assistant editor at The John C. Winston Co., a publishing firm. Winston was later acquired by Henry Holt and became part of Holt, Rinehart & Winston. At Winston, Howard-Smith both edited and wrote a large number of books, mainly under the pen name Logan Marshall.

About the Book:
The book is a detailed and accurate account of the most terrible marine disaster in history, constructed from the real facts as obtained from those on board who survived. Well established as part of the canon of Titanic literature, this book is a must-have for anyone with an interest in the ship and her sorrowful fate. When Titanic set sail from Southampton on her maiden voyage to New York on April 10, 1912, it was the largest ocean liner in the world. Believed "practically unsinkable" because of her double-bottomed hull and watertight compartments, she carried more than 2,000 passengers and crew, although only sufficient lifeboats for just over half that number. Four days out of Southampton, on the night of April 14, she struck an iceberg in the North Atlantic and sank within a matter of hours; 1,503 lives were lost. The author interviewed the survivors in the immediate aftermath of the disaster and in this book he records the facts as they were known. 

Abraham Lincoln and the Union: A Chronicle of the Embattled North


Title: Abraham Lincoln and the Union: A Chronicle of the Embattled North
Author: Nathaniel W. Stephenson
ISBN: 978-93-82395-66-9
Edition: 2015
Language: English
Binding: Hard Cover
Category: History

About the Author:
Nathaniel W. Stephenson is the Professor of history at the College of Charleston 1902-23 and at Scripps College 1927-35.

About the Book:
In spite of a lapse of sixty years, the historian who attempts to portray the era of Lincoln is still faced with almost impossible demands and still confronted with arbitrary points of view. It is out of the question, in a book so brief as this must necessarily be, to meet all these demands or to alter these points of view. Interests that are purely local, events that did not with certainty contribute to the final outcome, gossip, as well as the mere caprice of the scholar these must obviously be set aside.

The task imposed upon the volume resolves itself, at bottom, into just two questions: Why was there a war? Why was the Lincoln Government successful? Prominent as it is here made, the Lincoln matter all bears in the last analysis on one point his control of his support. On that the history of the North hinges. The personal and private Lincoln it is impossible to present within these pages. The public Lincoln, including the character of his mind, is here the essential matter. The bibliography at the close of the volume indicates the more important books which are at the reader's disposal and which it is unfortunate not to know.
