In A Comparative Analysis of Cicero and Aquinas, Charles P. Nemeth investigates how, despite their differences, these two figures may be the most compatible brothers in ideas ever conceived in the theory of natural law. Looking to find common threads that run between the philosophies of these two great thinkers of the Classical and Medieval periods, this book aims to determine whether or not there exists a common ground whereby ethical debates and dilemmas can be evaluated. Does comparison between Cicero and Aquinas offer a new pathway for moral measure, based on defined and developed principles? Do they deliver certain moral and ethical principles for human life to which each agree? Instead of a polemical diatribe, comparison between Cicero and Aquinas may edify a method of compromise and afford a more or less restrictive series of judgements about ethical quandaries.

There is no education that can avoid being political. Still, the question is, in what sense is education political, and if all education must be political, to what extent politics must be made the explicit telos of the formation and upbringing, and how the relation might be between the principles needed for education and those of the political sphere. Today, after the successive collapses of the modern models of good society - first realized socialism and then neo-liberal market society - the question is, what should the standards be for education and, especially, what the relation should be between these standards and politics. Do we for instance have to raise human beings to become citizens of a civic republic, a world society, or a league of nations? Can education limit itself to local concerns or must it transcend the limits to become international, transnational, or even global? Should we educate to a global social democracy? This book examines these questions. (Series: Philosophy of Education - Vol. 2)
