...Morris's Commonweal and other journals from around 1886 onward, culminated in ‘The Man with the Hoe’, a response to Millet's painting of the same title; the poem, whose blank verse powerfully envisioned the rise of the working classes, appeared in the San Francisco Examiner in 1899 and was widely reprinted throughout the USA. The Man with the Hoe and Other Poems ( 1899 ) was followed by Lincoln and Other Poems ( 1901 ), which emphasized the American democratic idealism inherent in his views of social progress. Subsequent collections include The...

Academic journals self-seeded, while scholarly publishing enjoyed a heyday. So-called “little” magazines as different as Poetry , Commonweal , and the New York Review of Books were venues for cutting-edge thought. After World War II, the Kinsey Report made a sensation matched only by books as different from it—and each other—as Silent Spring ( 1962 ), Love Story ( 1970 ), the first book in the Left Behind ...

...participating in primary significances represented variously in literature, the graphic arts, drama, religion, attitudes toward nature, and dreams. Jung was not anti-social, but certainly gave priority over the society to the individual's inner experience within a supportive commonweal. Indeed the social context was never left out of Jung's thinking, even though his immediate therapeutic work was always with individuals (whose names were and mostly remain today strictly shielded, as compared with Freud's hints and disclosures). Jung was less interested in the...

...or noble families, who served for life in the civic regime ( Regierung ). Though oligarchical, civic governments were not inherently oppressive; rather, intramural politics were conservative and grounded on the consensus that normal politics safeguarded peace, concord, and commonweal. It was also normal politics for the regime's opponents to protest and even riot when official behavior betrayed these communal norms. Citizens engaged in civic life not as individuals but as members of smaller corporate units, such as family, parish, neighborhood, or guild...

...of what he called “work-pleasure” is nullified. If these views are implicit in every object Morris created, by dint of their attention to use and beauty, they are made explicit in Morris's utopian romance News from Nowhere, published in 1890 in the Socialist League paper Commonweal, and now his best-known work. News from Nowhere takes its readers on a journey up the Thames and into the future with Morris's everyman narrator, William Guest. Set in the twenty-first century, Morris's utopia features a verdant English landscape in which the smokestacks he...

It is only by imagining the author on the model of the good father or husband, the wise legislator or the Holy Ghost, that the resulting variety of reconceived topoi are reduced in the pedagogical and analytical process to a single design of the common good (‘commonweal’) or Christian salvation. Such reduction is implicit in the ‘sentence’ chosen by the teacher in this case: the pupil is to learn good Latin along with the piety of paternal solicitude. The next step is to understand how this method focused exclusively on the learning of good...

...Bradford also sponsors a number of related centers that conduct research on war, conflict, and international affairs and has a specialist peace library (Commonweal Collection). The early peace studies programs were subject to intense criticism. Critics included those who declared that peace was so rare in human history there was nothing to study; they attacked the peace studies programs as a collection of weak “Mickey Mouse” courses, charged that peace studies based on “sloppy scholarship” was biased and politically motivated, and claimed that professors...

Nearly seventy years before 1963 , amid a serious economic depression, the Populist businessman Jacob Coxey and the radical self-promoter Carl Browne led the Commonweal of Christ, an integrated army of unemployed men, to Washington to lobby for economic reforms. This class-based demonstration shattered the tradition of petitioning the government by mail and alarmed members of Congress, local authorities, and journalists, who derisively labeled...

...the common weal of his country. In consequence, in the later Middle Ages chivalry came to be more closely and explicitly involved and associated with princely power and politics and with the ideology of the commonweal of the secular state, and a little less expressly associated with the church’s service.The inherent value of service to the commonweal became a recurrent theme in the political and chivalric advice literature of the later Middle Ages, and the store that the prince should set by the martial service of his knights and nobles was a similarly...
