An exorcism is an attempt to expel a demon or demons from a person or object which has been possessed by it or them. It is a highly formalized, ritualistic cere­mony with common characteristics found in its Catholic, Protestant (Anglican, Puritan, or dissident), Jewish, and pagan (including, but not limited to, Greek) variations. For the purposes of this study it does not always matter which particular kind of exorcism is being portrayed How to Represent God: A Textual and Cultural Analysis of Two Women Mystics This book determines the warp and woof of the whole of Western thinking, even at that place where it, as modern thinking, appears to think at odds with ancient thinking download. I will not linger long over Kretzmann's somewhat ungracious (even if not absolutely unjustifiable) use of the term 'philosophical ghetto'. But I cannot help asking: Since when is sympathy with the latest philosophical trends in itself an intellectual virtue?

Ethics is also associated with the idea of morality, and the two are often interchangeable. One debate that has commanded the attention of ethicists in the modern era has been between consequentialism (actions are to be morally evaluated solely by their consequences) and deontology (actions are to be morally evaluated solely by consideration of agents' duties, the rights of those whom the action concerns, or both) ref.: A History of the Inquisition download pdf Forms of idealism were prevalent in philosophy from the 18th century to the early 20th century. Transcendental idealism, advocated by Immanuel Kant, is the view that there are limits on what can be understood, since there is much that cannot be brought under the conditions of objective judgment. Kant wrote his Critique of Pure Reason (1781–1787) in an attempt to reconcile the conflicting approaches of rationalism and empiricism, and to establish a new groundwork for studying metaphysics Summa Theologiae.
