In the years immediately following World War II, Jacques Prevert spoke directly to and for the French who had come of age during the German Occupation. First published in 1946 by Les Editions de Minuit, a press with its origins in the Underground, Paroles met with enormous success, and there were several hundred thousand copies in print by the time these first translations in English were published by City Lights in 1958. Today Prevert speaks out in a voice still attuned to our times, for the human condition (which is always his focus) has not changed. In fact, man's inhumanity to man would seem to have intensified, making these poems ever more touching, ever more prescient.

The War of 1812 is often credited with having aroused fierce anti-American sentiment among Upper Canadians, creating a unity which ensured continued loyalty to Britain and played an important role in the defence of the colony. It is also claimed that all of Upper Canada benefited from British military spending, setting the colony on a course towards prosperity. In this revisionist history George Sheppard challenges these assumptions. Sheppard demonstrates that the colony was a fragmented and pluralistic community before the war and remained so after it. Upper Canadians were divided by racial, religious, linguistic, and class differences, and the majority of settlers had no strong ties to either the United States or Britain, with most men avoiding military service during the war. Reviewing the claims submitted for damages attributed to the fighting, he argues that British forces as well as enemy troops were responsible for widespread destruction of private property and concludes that this explains why there was little increase in anti-American feeling after the war. Much of the wartime damage occurred in areas west of York (now Toronto). This was the cause of grievances harboured by settlers in the western part of Upper Canada against their eastern counterparts long after the war had ended. As well, some Upper Canadians profited from wartime activities while others suffered greatly. Only later, in the 1840s when these issues had faded from memory, did Canadians begin to create a favourable version of wartime events. Using garrison records, muster rolls, diaries, newspapers, and damage claims registered after the war, the author delves beyond the rhetoric of wartime loyalties and reveals how the legacy of war complicated colonial politics.

The theory of "Middle Knowledge" ascribes to God a particular type of knowledge - that he sees not simply what each free creature could do in any circumstance, but what it would do in any circumstance. This type of knowledge is claimed to be helpful to explain how God has perfect foreknowledge, while creatures are free. But is such a knowledge possible, even for God? The author argues that the arguments against it do not stand, and that therefore the theory of "Middle Knowledge" is tenable. The arguments against the coherence of "Middle Knowledge" are examined, of which the most important is that counterfactuals of freedom could not exist (chapter 2). Then the arguments against the adequacy of the theory of "Middle Knowledge" are examined, such as whether or not counterfactual power over the past is implied by the theory of "Middle Knowledge" (chapter 3). A separate chapter is devoted to 'background problems', such as the specific concept of freedom, the notion of God's concurrence, and our view on the nature of possible worlds (chapter 4).

" De mon voyage au pays des mots et des phrases, je compte extraire une morale. Une morale qui dira comment il faut parler. Une morale du langage. Une éthique de la parole. " Paroles de bienvenue, d'encouragement, de tendresse, de confiance, de pardon ou paroles de reproche, de dénigrement, de rejet..., les mots comptent autant que les actes en ce qu'ils peuvent être libérateurs ou aliénants. D'où la nécessité de s'interroger sur une éthique de la parole. Car pour Michel Lacroix, en terme de morale, l'axe " que dois-je faire ? " n'est pas suffisant, il faut aussi s'interroger sur le bon usage de la parole. Traditionnellement la morale du langage s'organisait autour de la véracité ou du mensonge. L'auteur, lui, choisit d'élaborer une " éthique de la parole " en fonction du bien-être ressenti par l'individu. S'appuyant sur les courants qui ont mis en lumière l'impact psychologique de la communication comme l'école de Palo Alto, la philosophie de la politesse et la pragmatique linguistique, le philosophe propose une charte de la bonne communication construite autour d'une parole polie, attentionnée, partagée, positive, respectueuse des absents, tolérante, responsable et messagère de vérité subjective et objective. Cette éthique de la parole valorisée et mise en place dès le plus jeune âge est, pour le philosophe, nécessaire pour freiner les dérives déshumanisantes du travail, pour endiguer la dégradation des relations sociales et pallier les carences graves qui subsistent dans la sphère familiale et éducative. Sans chercher à donner de " recettes miracles ", il propose un art martial du langage qui permet de se comporter de façon éthique et efficace face à un interlocuteur dont le comportement verbal serait justement non éthique.
