This volume presents a series of essays published by Charles Kahn over a period of forty years, in which he seeks to explicate the ancient Greek concept of Being. He addresses two distinct but intimately related problems, one linguistic and one historical and philosophical. The linguistic problem concerns the theory of the Greek verb einai, 'to be': how to replace the conventional but misleading distinction between copula and existential verb with a more adequate theoretical account. The philosophical problem is in principle quite distinct: to understand how the concept of Being became the central topic in Greek philosophy from Parmenides to Aristotle. But these two problems converge on what Kahn calls the veridical use of einai. In the earlier papers he takes that connection between the verb and the concept of truth to be the key to the central role of Being in Greek philosophy. In the later papers he interprets the veridical in terms of a more general semantic function of the verb, which comprises the notions of existence and instantiation as well as truth.

What does it mean to be Reformed Christians in the world today ? and in Africa and South Africa? What does it mean to commemorate the legacy of John Calvin (1509-1564) after 500 years ? in a modern world characterised by democracy, by popular notions of human dignity and human rights, by worldwide struggles for individual freedoms and for social justice, by a global economy in crisis ? when social historians argue about the lasting contribution of Calvin and his followers precisely with respect to all these modern phenomena? The 28 essays by Dirkie Smit selected for this volume deal with such questions.

Heidegger's Being and Time: Critical Essays provides a variety of recent studies of Heidegger's most important work. Twelve prominent scholars, representing diverse nationalities, generations, and interpretive approaches deal with general methodological and ontological questions, particular issues in Heidegger's text, and the relation between Being and Time and Heidegger's later thought. All of the essays presented in this volume were never before available in an English-language anthology. Two of the essays have never before been published in any language (Dreyfus and Guignon); three of the essays have never been published in English before (Grondin, Kisiel, and Thomä), and two of the essays provide previews of works in progress by major scholars (Dreyfus and Kisiel).

What does it mean to be a man? Does it mean you're way too serious, are all grown up, and have ditched your sweats and gym shoes for cardigan sweaters and loafers? Does being a man mean you're tough and have no tears, no emotions? Or does being a man mean taking responsibility for your life, learning from your mistakes and the mistakes of others, and creating priorities, goals, and expectations? Being a man is about being an adult, embracing the male mindset, and treating yourself with the respect a real man deserves. Be A Man offers frank, honest, hard-hitting advice. Be smart when it comes to sex. Save money. Eat healthy, but eat some junk every now and then. Don't get married too soon. Don't worry what other people think. Choose something you want to do with your life and go do it. Be determined. Take action. Get things done. Live your life and be happy. This collection of essays focuses on what it means to be a man in today's society. In this book you'll find funny, poignant, serious, and tender truths in plain language. These essays are written by men that have made mistakes, have found success, have experienced the highs and lows of relationships, and have gems of wisdom to offer the next generation of young men.
