Spirituality and Human Nature
Spirituality and Human Nature (December 1992)
Donald Evans - Author

"This book has been written by a proven author and senior philosopher who knows western thought inside out, yet he sees the need for a larger conception of human nature that is open to the spiritual dimension and treats that dimension as the fundamental reality. In presenting such a view of human nature and spirituality, Evans draws deeply and insightfully from western depth psychology, Eastern meditation psychology, Christian thought, and his ...(Read More)
 
 
Towards a Phenomenological Ethics
Towards a Phenomenological Ethics (October 1992)
Ethos and the Life-World
Werner Marx - Author

This book investigates the possibility of a contemporary ethics of compassion based upon the experience of human mortality. During an age in which the traditional metaphysical guarantors of order, transcendent sources of meaning, and appeals to human rationality are becoming historical phenomena, it is important to investigate whether an alternative source of measure for human conduct can be discovered through phenomenological analysis.

Hermeneutics and Education
Hermeneutics and Education (October 1992)
Shaun Gallagher - Author

"This is a pathbreaking book. It proposes a fourfold typology of hermeneutics--conservative, moderate, critical, and radical--and unfolds four basic principles in each. Gallagher presents a philosophically careful and solid discussion of each position and four principles central to it, including evaluation of their strengths and weaknesses; then he searches out parallel standpoints in current educational theory and shows whether or how each parall...(Read More)
 
 
New Perspectives on Hegel's Philosophy of Religion
New Perspectives on Hegel's Philosophy of Religion (September 1992)
David Kolb - Editor

Hegel's ideas about the nature of religion, its history, and its relation to philosophy have had great influence on his friends and foes alike. Relying on the new critical edition of Hegel's separate lecture courses, the essays in this book provide new insights into Hegel's ideas and challenge the way we think today. Crucial topics are discussed. Is Hegel a Christian? Does the political community absorb religion? How does religion relate to ph...(Read More)
 
 
Shattered Forms
Shattered Forms (September 1992)
Art Brut, Phantasms, Modernism
Allen S. Weiss - Author

Art Brut, also termed Outsider Art, has long been suppressed from most art historical writing. Why this rejection? The hyperbolic expressions of Romanticism and Symbolism nourished a desire for derangement and dissociation that inspired both Expressionism and Surrealism. Simulated delirium became the object of the new art -- experimental, avant-garde, modernist -- which arose from the fragmented codes, the shattered forms of everyday communicati...(Read More)
 
 
Body/Text in Julia Kristeva
Body/Text in Julia Kristeva (September 1992)
Religion, Women, and Psychoanalysis
David Crownfield - Editor

Julia Kristeva works at a crucial intersection of contemporary disciplines: psychoanalysis, linguistics, semiotics, literary criticism, feminism, postmodern philosophy, and religious studies. This volume examines this rich body of work and the ways in which its interdisciplinary style gives insight into problems in understanding religion. Special attention is given to two related themes: the understanding of woman in relation to religion and the...(Read More)
 
 
Foucault's Nietzschean Genealogy
Foucault's Nietzschean Genealogy (September 1992)
Truth, Power, and the Subject
Michael Mahon - Author

"There has long been a need to overcome the view that Foucault is totally unique, a philosophical eccentricity. In exploring him as a Nietzschean, Mahon meets this need in a very close reading of Foucault and one which is extremely well written.


"I regard it as very important for the world of scholarship about Foucault, but also for Nietzsche. Mahon shows that Nietzsche himself can lead to an important style of concrete critique.

Extensions
Extensions (September 1992)
Essays on Interpretation, Rationality, and the Closure of Modernism
Stephen H. Watson - Author

"The author addresses the central issue of the structure and limits of rationality. He does so on the basis of a comprehensive reading of a wide variety of voices ranging from high modernity to what we now call 'postmodernity.' The author is a wide and intelligent reader of Kant and the German Idealists (including Fichte and Schelling), nineteenth century hermeneutics, Nietzsche, Husserl, Heidegger, Merleau-Ponty, Gadamer, contemporary French 'pos...(Read More)

Intimate Conflict (August 1992)
Contradiction in Literary and Philosophical Discourse
Brian G. Caraher - Editor


In a comprehensive introduction and six tightly argued essays, the authors demonstrate how rich and suggestive the notion of contradiction in discourse can be.

Henry Johnstone on Hesiod, Charles Altieri on Plato and Socrates, Mili Clark on Milton and his God, Marc Shell on Kant and Hegel, Brian Caraher on Wordsworth and I. A. Richards, and Richard Kuhns on Melville, Freud, and Bertrand Russell contribute provocative analys...(Read More)
 
 
The Process of Democratization
The Process of Democratization (August 1992)
Georg Lukacs - Author
Susanne Bernhardt - Translator
Norman Levine - Translator

Georg Lukacs's The Process of Democratization provides indispensable reading for an understanding of the revolution that swept Russia and Eastern Europe during 1989-1990. Lukacs, a spokesman for anti-Bolshevik communism, was the advance guard of anti-Stalinist reform. Written in the aftermath of the Prague Spring, his book was a precursor to many of the Gorbachev reforms.

Lukacs was the leading communist intellectual in the world u...(Read More)
