The underlying theme of this book is 'that the principles of law laid down by the Judges in the 19th century - however suited to social conditions of the time - are not suited to the social necessities and social opinion of the 20th century. They should be moulded and shaped to meet the needs and opinions of today. The Discipline of Law is a fascinating account of Lord Denning's personal contribution to the changing face of the law in this century.
Opinions on the International Court of Justice, 1961-1973
Author: John Graham Merrills
Publisher: Martinus Nijhoff Publishers
Influential, but controversial - elected to the International Court in 1960, Sir Gerald Fitzmaurice served as a judge until 1973. This work comprises a thoughtful essay by Professor Merrills and a selection of Judge Fitzmaurice's opinions. Professor Merrills' essay analyses Judge Fitzmaurice's achievements during his judical tenure and relates them to his earlier work as a legal advisor and scholar. The essay also discusses the final phase of Fitzmaurice's career in which he served as a judge on the European Court of Human Rights and arbitrator. Demonstrating how Fitzmaurice's decisions as a judge stemmed from his distinctive view of law and the legal process, this study particularly interests scholars, practitioners, and students concerned with international adjudication and the nature of international law. This volume is the third in the series entitled "The Judges," which examines the opinions of international judges who have made significant contributions to international law.

A Kantian View of the Role of Moral Precepts in Zen Practice
Author: Phillip Olson
Publisher: SUNY Press
Seyyed Hossein Nasr is University Professor of Islamic Studies at George Washington University. He is the author of Islamic Art and Spirituality, Islamic Life and Thought, and Knowledge and the Sacred; and the co-editor of Expectation of the Millenium: Shi'ism in History, and Shi'ism: Doctrines, Thought, and Spirituality, all published by SUNY Press. He is also the General Editor of the SUNY series in Islam. Nasr was educated at M.I.T. and Harvard and has taught throughout America, Europe, the Middle East, Pakistan, India, Japan, and Australia. The author shows that both Shunryu Suzuki and Kant posit a reciprocally supportive relationship between the development of personal autonomy and the respectful observance of moral rules or precepts, and that both see the practice of a discipline restricting the speculative activity of reason as essential to the attainment of true freedom and moral worth. By cultivating consciousness of freedom through insight into emptiness, the discipline of zazen acts as what Kant calls a "moral ascetic," cultivating a mind and body responsive to universal moral concerns. Olson concludes by showing how Kant's notion of the ultimate end of moral behavior--the highest good--is manifested in the Bodhisattva's vow to work for the salvation of all sentient beings.
This volume will show how various intellectual disciplines (most found within the modern university) can learn from theology and philosophy in primarily methodological and substantitive terms. It will explore the possible ways in which current presuppositions and practices of the displine might be challenged. It will also indicate the possibilities of both a "Christian Culture" in relation to that discipline or the way in which that discipline might look within a real or theoretical Christian university.
This volume reproduces the papers given at a successful conference organized by the International Economic Law Group of the American Society of International Law held in Fall 2006 at the Mount Washington Resort Hotel, Bretton Woods. The conference focused on the research and teaching of international economic law. The papers, reflecting a diverse range of approaches and topics, will be of great value to anyone involved in teaching or writing about international economic law.

The Discipline of Organizing synthesizes insights from library science, information science, computer science, cognitive science, systems analysis, business, and other disciplines to create an Organizing System for understanding organizing. This framework is robust and forward-looking, enabling effective sharing of insights and design patterns between disciplines that weren’t possible before.
