9781137441584: From the Axial Age to the Moral Revolution: John Stuart-Glennie, Karl Jaspers, and a New Understanding of the Idea

In 1873, John Stuart Stuart-Glennie elaborated a theory of 'the moral revolution' to characterize the historical shift from roughly 600 BCE in a variety of civilizations, as part of a critical theory of history. This book brings light to the now eclipsed theory and offers new contexts and understandings of the phenomenon.

About the Author:

Eugene Halton is Professor in the Deptartment of Sociology and the Deptarment of American Studies at the University of Notre Dame, USA.

Review:

'Halton has creatively introduced a new voice into the current pursuit of the 'axial age,' so thoroughly that readers who will never see Stuart-Glennie's rare books leave Halton's analysis with a clear understanding of what until now has been missing from the record. Intellectual historians are always on the look-out for fresh, previously overlooked material to reanimate. Halton has thus resurrected Stuart-Glennie with dedication and skill."

- Alan Sica, Professor of Sociology, Pennsylvania State University, USA.

Book Description Palgrave Pivot. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. 150 pages. Dimensions: 8.6in. x 5.6in. x 0.7in.The revolutionary outbreak in a variety of civilizations centered around 600 B. C. E. , a period in which the great world religions as well as philosophy emerged, from Hebrew scriptures and the teachings of Buddha to the works of Greek and Chinese philosophers, has been named the Axial Age by Karl Jaspers. Yet 75 years earlier, in 1873, unknown to Jaspers and still unknown to the world, John Stuart Stuart-Glennie elaborated a fully developed and more nuanced theory of what he termed The Moral Revolution to characterize the period. This book also brings to light the previously undiscussed ideas of D. H. Lawrence on the phenomenon from 20 years before Jaspers, the seldom mentioned contributions of Lewis Mumford, and proposes a new context for understanding the phenomenon. Halton rewrites the history of this fascinating theory and opens new ways of conceiving the meaning of The Moral Revolution for today. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Hardcover. Bookseller Inventory # 9781137441584
