This book considers the relationship between Hayek and Mill, taking issues with Hayek's criticism of Mill and providing a broader perspective of the liberal tradition. Featuring contributions from the likes of Ross Emmett, Leon Montes and Robert Garnett, these chapters ask whether Hayek had an accurate reading of the ideas of Mill and Smith, as well as considering themes such as sympathy and analytical egalitarianism that play a large part in the liberal tradition, but less in work of Hayek These chapters argue that addition of these key ideas to the Hayekian corpus leads to a far broader unde

This work explores the literary and musical connections between Hispano-Arabic strophic songs of the muwashshaha-zajal genre, and their medieval Romance cognates, the ballata, cantiga, dansa, rondeau, villancico, and virelai. The authors begin with a general essay based on recent scholarship in Arabic, Romance, and ethnomusicological studies and then present a translation of Al-Tifashi's key 13th-century Arabic treatise on the musical tradition of Arab Spain. The appendices provide texts and translations of ten poems that modern scholarship attributes to or authenticates as part of the Hispano

Drawing on Max Weber's approach to legal rationalization--which stimulated a transfer from the patrimonial tradition of law to a more systematic and rational legal code--"Modernization, Tradition and Identity" investigates how and why Islamic justice in Indonesia has evolved over the years. Euis Nurlaelawati delves into classic Islamic legal texts--known as the "fiqh"--and shows their significance in Indonesian state and Islamic family law, how they are interpreted by judges to justify deviations from state legislation, and the role they play in debates between Muslim scholars and religious co

This detailed investigation of manuscripts of Phoinissai demonstrates the openness of the medieval tradition, the value of the recentiores, the extent of scribal conjectures, the nature of the Moschopoulean "recension," and the importance of Triklinios' rather than Thomas' influence on the so-called Thoman manuscripts. The full collation of all papyri and some three dozen major manuscripts, published here with an extensive list of Testimonia, will be a valuable resource for future editions and for further research.

Written in 1954 and revised in 1962, "Mental Illness and Psychology" delineates the shift that occurred in Foucault's thought during this period. Part I reflects Foucault's early interest in Freud and the psychoanalytic tradition. Respectful of Freud, Foucault is still contending with Freud's influence. Part II, rewritten in 1962, marks a dramatic change in Foucault's thinking. Examining the history of madness as a social and cultural construct, he has moved outside of the psychoanalytic tradition into the racial critique of Freud that was to dominate his later work.
