241 pages. B/W photos. The story of its preservation and care since 1885. Just what was - and is - the legacy of Mount Vernon? Ann Pamela Cunningham, founder and first Regent of the Mount Vernon Ladies' Association, answered the question in one sentence. In 1874, addressing the annual meeting of the Grand Council of the Association, she said: Let one spot in this grand country of ours be saved from change. Upon you rests this duty.

Francis Bacon, lawyer, statesman, and philosopher, remains one of the most effectual thinkers in European intellectual history. We can trace his influence from Kant in the 1700s to Darwin a century later. The Advancement of Learning, first published in 1605, contains an unprecedented and thorough systematization of the whole range of human knowledge. Bacon's argument that the sciences should move away from divine philosophy and embrace empirical observation would forever change the way philosophers and natural scientists interpret their world. 298 pages.

Publisher: Great Britain, Penguin Classics: 1979

Seller ID: 249340

Condition: Good Condition


In late 1888, only weeks before his final collapse into madness, Nietzsche (1844-1900) set out to compose his autobiography, and Ecce Homo remains one of the most intriguing yet bizarre examples of the genre ever written. In this extraordinary work Nietzsche traces his life, work and development as a philosopher, examines the heroes he has identified with, struggled against and then overcome - Schopenhauer, Wagner, Socrates, Christ - and predicts the cataclysmic impact of his 'forthcoming revelation of all values'. Both self-celebrating and self-mocking, penetrating and strange, Ecce Homo give... View more info
