Honor's a.k.a. Honors course is a distinction applied in the United States to certain classes to distinguish them from standard course offerings. The difference between a regular class and the honors class is not necessarily the amount of work, but the type of work required and the pace of studying. Honors courses are not advanced in the same sense that high school Advanced Placement, Advanced International Certificate of Education, and International Baccalaureate courses are. Rather, honors courses are enriched; they offer the same material in greater depth and with a faster pace. Honors courses emphasize critical and independent thinking to produce creative applications of ideas. The student/teacher ratio is usually smaller in honors classes to encourage participation and class discussion.

The material contained in this dictionary is designed to provide a concise tool of penetration into Kant's system of thought, a system that by virtue of its complexity and linguistic difficulties has long been almost the exclusive property of scholars. Professor Stockhammer has extracted from the vast body of Kant's literature the essential concepts, terms, meanings and definitions of his system, and has arranged them in such a way as to give a clear exposition of Kant's dualistic philosophy.
The author, a Viennese Doctor of Philosophy, is one of the eminent Kantians of our time and author of many works in the field.

Ranking among the most comprehensive systematicians of theological thought, Thomas Aquinas, the bulwark of Scholasticism, looked into virtually every corner of the theological edifice. "There are two sorts of . . ." This and phrases similar to it are constant expressions repeated on almost every page of St. Thomas' masterwork, Summa Theologiae. They are vivid reflections of his investigative method, a method that consisted of a broad and liberal vision which scrutinized all facets of every issue considered by him throughout his writings.
It would be presumptuous at best to expect to extract all the decisive passages from the vast body of Aquinas' literature. And yet, without the hope of possibly accomplishing this task, one could not endeavor to compile a dictionary on Thomas Aquinas. Thus, in the preparation of this volume, the editor constantly reminded himself of Rickaby's admonition:
St. Thomas is an author peculiarly liable to misrepresentation by taking his words in one place to the neglect of what he says on the same subject elsewhere. No one is safe in quoting him who has not read much of him.
Naturally, the dictionary is organized with this in mind. Professor Stockhammer has sought to make misrepresentation a moot point and to distill and deliver the Thomist philo-theology within the framework of its essentials. In addition, only entries that are of interest to the modern reader are included, whereas items of merely medieval concern are omitted.
The volume contains an excellent introduction by Professor Theodore E. James, and will take its place beside other dictionaries, such as Aristotle Dictionary and Plato Dictionary, as an invaluable handbook for students, teachers and interested readers alike. - 304 pages
Dictionary of Magic by Harry E. Wedeck offers a broad understanding of the field of witchcraft, the occult, and its many manifestations, from early Babylonian times to the present day. It includes knowledge of words in this area from many continents and practices. It also discusses and analyzes occult practices and notable wizards and demonographers.
Harry E. Wedeck was a linguistic, scholar of the classics, and observer of spheres beyond the norm. A native of Sheffield, England, Mr. Wedeck was chairman of the department of classical languages at Erasmus Hall High School in Brooklyn from 1935 to 1950 and then taught the classics at Brooklyn College until 1968. Afterward he lectured on medieval studies at the New School for Social Research, until 1974.
Some of his excursions into the unusual remain available in reprint editions. They include "Dictionary of Astrology," "A Dictionary of Aphrodisiacs," "A Treasury of Witchcraft" and "Triumph of Satan." They were originally written near the end of Mr. Wedeck's career, when he was steeped in the classics as an educator in the New York City school and college system. - 166 pages
