Socrates in the Apology by C. D. C. Reeve Summary

"Reeve's book is an excellent companion to Plato's Apology and a valuable discussion of many of the main issues that arise in the early dialogues. Reeve is an extremely careful reader of texts, and his familiarity with the legal and cultural background of Socrates' trial allows him to correct many common misunderstandings of that event. In addition, he integrates his reading of the apology with a sophisticated discussion of Socrates' philosophy. The writing is clear and succinct, and the research is informed by a thorough acquaintance with the secondary literature. Reeve's book will be accessible to any serious undergraduate, but it is also a work that will have to be taken into account by every scholar doing advanced research on Socrates." --Richard Kraut, Northwestern University

Never Ask for an Apology by Jimmie Clay Summary

Everyday somebody is offering an apology for something he/she did or said that may have offended somebody else or a certain group. From the beginning to the end of this book authentic examples are given where a person offended or harmed another and followed up the action by either making a genuine apology, made a blunder or failed to offer one at all. The examples typify the advent of apologies and apologizing in our society today, especially from those we call celebrities and those who we look to for good character. It has been observed that over the past several years, we have seen and heard many public acts of contrition from movie and sports stars to religious leaders, politicians and common people. Some of the expressions that are called apologies have been sincere and were presented in a genuine manner. On the other hand, some of the gestures made the situations worse and diminished the act altogether. A genuine apology is defined as a gesture that expresses one regret over an offense, fault, or accident caused to another. The gesture includes an admission that harm was caused to the other person or group and a sincere promise that the act will not happen again. As a means to illustrate how a genuine apology can be presented to an offended person or group, six cases are revisited, and rewritten in different statements to make the gestures more authentic. Obviously, there are different views on apologizing for harm caused to others. Several distinguished individuals were interviewed to ascertain their perceptions on apology and apologizing for harm caused to another person or group.

Colonel Joseph Bampfield's Apology by Joseph Bampfield,John Clyde Loftis,Paul H. Hardacre Summary

"This book consists of two parts of approximately equal length: Colonel Joseph Bampfield's Apology (1685), edited by John Loftis and Paul H. Hardacre; and a biographical account, Bampfield's Later Career, by John Loftis. Bampfield's Apology provides an account of the author's war service and his subsequent service to Charles I as a courier and agent in the period of frustrated negotiations that led to the second civil war and the execution of the king. Bampfield describes Charles's negotiations with parliament, with the army, with commissioners representing the Scots, and he describes the attempt by the king and leaders of Parliament to reach agreement in the Treaty of Newport before Cromwell's army returned from the north, after defeating the Scottish army. Although the narrative is partisan, it is (except in rare instances) factually accurate. Bampfield prints ten letters written to him by the king, not published elsewhere, for which there is convincing external as well as internal evidence of authenticity." "As long ago as 1894, C. H. Firth wrote that Bampfield's "biographical 'Apology,' published at The Hague in 1685, is a book of the utmost rarity, and deserves reprinting." Yet the Apology has never before been reprinted, presumably because of Bampfield's reputation as a spy for the protectorate." "The Apology is primarily a memoir of the reign of Charles I. Bampfield, twenty-six at the time of the king's death, lived many more years, many of them years of vigorous and varied activities. These years are recounted in the second half of this volume, Bampfield's Later Career. The biographical record provided by the Apology, and corroborated by the Memoirs of Anne, Lady Halkett, can be supplemented by Bampfield's voluminous correspondence, published and unpublished, in both French and English. Bampfield wrote most of the letters as intelligence reports. Though they include only incidental references to his personal activities, cumulatively they provide a detailed account of his life, and an informed commentary on national and international affairs as well."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Apology and Reconciliation in International Relations by Christopher Daase,Stefan Engert,Michel-André Horelt,Judith Renner,Renate Strassner Summary

This book looks into the role and effects of public apologies in international relations. It focuses on two major questions - why and when do states issue apologies for historic crimes and how and under what conditions are these apologies successful in remedying conflictive relationships? In recent years, we have witnessed an unseen popularity of apologies, with numerous politicians, managers and clergymen being eager to apologise and atone for the wrong-doings of their countries or institutions. Public apologies, thus, are a new and highly interesting, while nevertheless still puzzling phenomenon, the precise role and meaning of which in international politics remains to be explored. This book sets out to do exactly this. Focusing in particular on state apologies, it assembles twelve detailed empirical case studies which deal with the two questions raised above. In the first part, the case studies reconstruct the processes in which state representatives react to calls for public atonement, and in the second part the case studies explore the reactions to the apology and evaluate signs for its success or failure. All case studies are based on a theoretical framework which is outlined in the introduction to the book and helps develop tentative assumptions about the emergence and the effects of state apologies, drawing on different strands of literature, such as political science, philosophy, sociology or psychology. This work will be of great interest to students and scholars of conflict reconciliation, international relations and transitional justice.

No Apology by Mitt Romney Summary

The #1 New York Times bestseller about putting America back in the lead and building a better future from former US Presidential Candidate and 2018 Utah Senate Candidate. In No Apology, Mitt Romney asserts that American strength is essential—not just for our own well-being, but for the world's. Nations such as China and a resurgent Russia threaten to overtake us on many fronts, and violent Islamism continues its dangerous rise. In the face of such challenges, America need not apologize for its liberties, but must use them wisely. We need renewal: fresh ideas to cut through complicated problems and restore our strength. Creative and bold, Romney proposes solutions to restore economic vitality, create good jobs, reduce out-of-control spending on entitlements and health care, dramatically improve education, and rebuild a military battered by years of war. Most important, he calls for a new commitment to citizenship, a common cause we all share, rather than a laundry list of individual demands. Many of his solutions run counter to Republican thinking, but all have one strategic aim: to strengthen America and preserve our global leadership. Personal and dynamically argued, No Apology is a call to action by a man who cares deeply about America's history, its promise, and its future.

Apology by By Plato Summary

Apology is Plato's version of the speech given by Socrates as he defended himself in 399 BC against the charges of "corrupting the young, and by not believing in the gods in whom the city believes, but in other daimonia that are novel." Socrates begins by telling the jury that their minds were poisoned by his enemies when they were young and impressionable. He says his reputation for sophistry comes from his enemies, all of whom are envious of him, and malicious. He says they must remain nameless, except for Aristophanes, the comic poet. He later answers the charge that he has corrupted the young by arguing that deliberate corruption is an incoherent idea. Socrates says that all these false accusations began with his obedience to the oracle at Delphi. He tells how Chaerephon went to the Oracle at Delphi, to ask if anyone was wiser than Socrates. When Chaerephon reported to Socrates that the god told him there is none wiser, Socrates took this as a riddle. He himself knew that he had no wisdom "great or small" but that he also knew that it is against the nature of the gods to lie. Socrates then went on a "divine mission" to solve the paradox (that an ignorant man could also be the wisest of all men) and to clarify the meaning of the Oracles' words. He systematically interrogated the politicians, poets and craftsmen. Socrates determined that the politicians were imposters, and the poets did not understand even their own poetry, like prophets and seers who do not understand what they say. Craftsmen proved to be pretentious too, and Socrates says that he saw himself as a spokesman for the oracle (23e). He asked himself whether he would rather be an impostor like the people he spoke to, or be himself. Socrates tells the jury that he would rather be himself than anyone else.
