...<b>Reason and Self-Enactment in History and Politics: Themes and Voices of Modernity (McGill-Queen's Studies in the History of Ideas)</b>, Barnard, F. M.
11 Barnard, F. M. ...Reason and Self-Enactment in History and Politics: Themes and Voices of Modernity (McGill-Queen's Studies in the History of Ideas)
Canada: Mcgill Queens Univ Press, 2007. 0773531297 / 9780773531291 First Edition. Soft cover.
 
No Flaws or Blemishes; Gift Quality
F.M. Barnard goes beyond the seventeenth-century understanding of the social contract by making national self-enactment contingent on public reasons for individual liberty within civic mutuality.
He examines the possibilities and limits for a self-enacting, principled politics, acknowledging reason and self-enactment as central concepts of historical and political thinking. He argues, however, that reason must be seen as practical reason, which only indirectly acts as a cause, while self-enactment must be understood as operating in relation to reciprocity with the other. Reason and Self-Enactment in History and Politics also offers a reappraisal of basic political principles and constructs.
Barnard argues for bridging differences among a plurality of truths and forming practical judgments through cultivation of a sense of situational appropriateness.

'Golf is a funny game ...Many books have been written on the art of playing Golf, but few have attempted to give any record of the subtle humour which belongs to all sports of Scottish origin, and to Golf in particular.' So said the original blurb when first published in 1914.

Golf Stories is a collection of original short stories, jokes, anecdotes, sketches, dialogues and parodies, all illustrated with suitably baggy-trousered line drawings by E. W. Mitchell. It includes among many other items the maxims of Foozler Minimus, a golfing Roman legionary (Mens agitat molem: 'Some men get anyed with a molehill'), and 'The Rules - Revised', which states 'Casual water is any temporary accumulation of water - undiluted with whiskey'
