From the mid-16th century to the beginning first quarter of the 21st century, economic thought can be split into five main historical schools: mercantilism; the economics of the French physiocrats;... More > classical economics; Keynesianism; and monetarism. The schools do not necessarily encompass the views of all economists. The mercantilists, between the mid-16th and mid-18th centuries, argued that the wealth of nations depended on their balance of trade.

Moral Philosophy from Socrates to the 21st Aeon has shown three constant themes. 1. Disagreements over whether ethical judgments are truths about the world or only reflections of the wishes of those... More > who make them, 2. Frequent attempts to show, in the face of considerable scepticism, either that it is in one's own interests to do what is good or that, even though this is not necessarily in one's own interests, it is the rational thing to do, 3. Repeated debates over just what goodness and the standard of right and wrong might be. The 21st century has seen new twists to these old themes and an increased attention to the application of ethics to practical problems. Each of these major questions is considered in this book, in terms of meta-ethics, normative ethics, and applied ethics.< Less

More > government, internally and internationally, rather than in private settings and associations. Modes of political activity are highly diverse, varying from dispute resolution and formal elections to the threat or use of outright coercion or force. The degree to which people can engage in political activity also varies in different countries: in open societies, individuals have more freedom to participate in the exercise of political power than in closed societies, where such power is restricted to small groups. There has also been pressure for more democracy at a lower level, particularly in the way that work is organized. The social conditions for stable democratic government have been extensively discussed, with level of economic development apparently the most important single factor.< Less

Living harmoniously means; an accord, in conformity with articulation, compatibility, integration, togetherness, and in unity with friends who also live in harmony. Through the centuries, the subject... More > of harmony, or happiness, was debated as part of ethics; the philosophical study of the nature and grounds of moral thought and action. Ethical theories in this pure sense are sharply distinguished from moral systems, which are directed towards drawing up particular sets of rules by which to live, and from practical or applied ethics, the analysis of arguments advanced for particular moral conclusions. The most fundamental question in ethics is usually taken to be the justification of morality that is whether or not it can be demonstrated that moral action is rational. With all the enlightenment based on the results of modern scientific research and the new model of literature; fiction and poetry, the need for a harmonious living and happiness still remains unchanged - ever since the ancient times.< Less

Metaphysics Facts and Fallacies By Andreas Sofroniou

This book deals with Metaphysics as a branch of philosophy which studies the most general categories, concepts and descriptions of ourselves and the world; causality, substance, ontology, time, and... More > reality. Metaphysical questions can ask whether our actions are subject to causality, which gives rise to the problem of free will, and the question of whether our mental experiences involve a separate substance from body is a major issue in the philosophy of mind. Although metaphysics dates back to the ancient Greeks, the rise of science led to attempts by philosophers to limit the claims of metaphysics, and earlier in the last century scientifically minded philosophers such as the logical positivists claimed that metaphysical assertions were meaningless. In modern times the term used for the interpretation of Metaphysics is widely miscomprehended. The misunderstanding of the subject of Metaphysics extends to the mystical and esoteric feelings of the oriental religions and conceptions of therapeutic methods.< Less
