... a political system that ensures collective decision-making processes resulting
in citizens feeling connected to the outcome and each other, and a society which
is sufficiently open and offers space for various individual and collective
ambitions. Certainly not everyone will entirely agree with this description. Over
the past twenty years, there has been growing resistance to an interpretation that
implies that the Western model is the best, and the above formulation comes
close to doing ...

The Prophetic Challenge to Urban Civilization While the imperial ambitions of the
Davidic dynasty foundered with the rebellion of the northern tribes of Israel
against the rule of Solomon's son Rehoboam (1 Kings 12), the die was cast. The
ancient Israelites would henceforth live under the rule of imperial ambitions and
pretensions, with the northern kingdom of Israel becoming the primary heir of
those ambitions; ironically, in view of its separation from Judah as a peasant-

and epistemology is hardly contested these days, which led Hilary Putnam to the
conclusion that “philosophical problems are unsolvable“ (Putnam, 1990, P. 19).
Awareness of this ultimate insolvability is reflected in recent discussions in
philosophy of education, which pay a great deal of attention to the resulting
necessity of reformulating the ambitions and pretensions of this discipline.

But of these struggles——struggles against foes without the realm, to establish
political hegemony; struggles with rivals within the realm, among family and
supporters as well as among declared opponents, to thwart their ambitions and
contain their threat; struggles within himself, to balance the exigencies of royal
power against the seductions of private inclination—-none will 1. Admittedly, this
section contains the compact account of David's capture of Jerusalem 5.6-9, but

This young Nino, equally ambitious, and endowed with extraordinary physical
powers and bravery, became openly the rival of his grandfather in the ambitious
pretension to an absolute sovereignty over the city. The Guelfs of Pisa, being
divided between the two pretenders, during four entire years, from 1284 to 1288,
the city remained the constant scene of collision and bloodshed between the

His Trilogy resembles War and Peace without the author's comments—the
teaching arose by itself, the readers found it although Sienkiewicz had no
ambition or pretension to guide his nation. This mission was imposed upon him.
In the second part of his life he seemed to have accepted it. The Trilogy of
Sienkiewicz has been very often compared to Dumas, and this comparison is
justifiable. But the differences are much more essential and significant. Yes,
