Rethinking Knowledge
Rethinking Knowledge (February 1995)
Reflections Across the Disciplines
Robert F. Goodman - Editor
Walter R. Fisher - Editor

This is an exploration of modernism and postmodernism in regard to knowledge: methods of inquiry, operations of the mind, the role of values, conceptions of self, and the problematic of reason.

"This book addresses a set of epistemic developments important throughout the academy. The range of contributors is excellent, and their collective prestige will attract more than a few readers all by itself. A further advantage...(Read More)
 
 
Double Truth
Double Truth (December 1994)
John Sallis - Author

This is an anthology of deconstructive writings on the doubly difficult theme of truth by the foremost American philosopher of postmodernity.
"If any stranger needed to have it explained why John Sallis is such a major force in continental philosophy, I would invite him or her to turn to this book. Sallis takes his readers by the hand, and, with great delicacy, introduces them to hitherto unseen subtleties at the very heart of the works o...(Read More)
 
 
Philosophical Foundations of Historical Knowledge
Philosophical Foundations of Historical Knowledge (July 1994)
Murray G. Murphey - Author

"This is philosophy of the highest order. Several of the most fundamental and challenging philosophical problems are discussed with analytical rigor, subtlety, originality, technical sophistication, detailed familiarity with the vast relevant literature, and lucidity. What I find most exciting is the way Murphey is able to make a powerful case for pragmatic naturalism and natural realism on the basis of an amazing mastery of the vast recent literatu...(Read More)
 
 
Epistemological Issues in Classical Chinese Philosophy
Epistemological Issues in Classical Chinese Philosophy (August 1993)
Hans Lenk - Editor
Gregor Paul - Editor

This book shows that classic Chinese philosophy is as rational as Western approaches dealing with the problems of logic, epistemology, language analysis, and linguistic topics from a philosophical point of view. It presents detailed analyses of rational and methodological features in Confucianism, Taoist philosophy, and the School of Names as well as Mohist approaches in classical Chinese philosophy, especially in regard to ideas of valid knowledg...(Read More)
 
 
Knowledge, Evolution and Paradox
Knowledge, Evolution and Paradox (August 1993)
The Ontology of Language
Koen DePryck - Author

"It is already clear that postmodernism is an unsatisfactory view of the world: the skepticism, antifoundationalism, and distrust of any form of narrative or argument that has characterized this last phase of modernism cannot long resist its own corrosive critique. What view of the world will succeed postmodernism? To answer this question, it is necessary to take up several challenges abandoned along the way as metaphysical, insoluble in terms of...(Read More)
 
 
Enlightenment to Enlightenment
Enlightenment to Enlightenment (July 1993)
Intercritique of Science and Myth
Henri Atlan - Author
Lenn J. Schramm - Translator

This book is a thorough and critical, comparative analysis of the logic of modern scientific thought and of traditional teachings generally referred to as mythological and mystical.

Different rationalities with different domains of interest and legitimacy exist, which should not be confused and cannot be unified in any theory of "Ultimate Reality." Atlan suggests they must coexist in practice, although each of them...(Read More)
 
 
Scientific Discovery
Scientific Discovery (July 1993)
Logic and Tinkering
Aharon Kantorovich - Author

"This is the best English language book in evolutionary epistemology so far." -- Donald T. Campbell, Lehigh University

Kantorovich analyzes the notion of discovery. He...(Read More)
 
 
The Life of Irony and the Ethics of Belief
The Life of Irony and the Ethics of Belief (December 1992)
David Wisdo - Author

Wisdo concludes that the fragility of religious belief is due to the unavoidable irony intrinsic to the religious life.

"This is a very personal, deeply reflective essay, wrestling with Kierkegaardian themes, such as the justification of religious belief and the grounding of moral commitments. The style of exposition is clear, sincere, and hence deeply engaging. Yet, at once, the essay is surprisingly sophisticated: the author ranges knowl...(Read More)
 
 
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)

The Principles of Epistemology in Islamic Philosophy (May 1992)
Knowledge by Presence
Mehdi Ha'iri Yazdi - Author
Seyyed Hossein Nasr - Foreword by

This book aims to present to western philosophers the most important theme in Islamic epistemology: knowledge by presence, the knowledge that results from immediate and intuitive awarenes, advocated by the author as a viable modern philosophical position. Treating the subject in a thoroughly philosophical manner that is comprehensible to contemporary analytical philosophers, he remains faithful to the Islamic tradition.

"Ha'iri does not fal...(Read More)
