Bruno, or On the Natural and Divine Principle of Things
Bruno, or On the Natural and Divine Principle of Things (June 1984)
F. W. J. Schelling - Author
Michael G. Vater - Editor

“Vater is one of the most knowledgeable persons in the English-speaking world on the thought of the early Schelling (up to and including the period of this dialogue he has translated). There exists in English no truly detailed account of Schelling's identity-philosophy. Vater's very fine introduction, and his extensive notes to the translation, do a great deal to fill this gap.” — Robert F. Brown, University of Delaware

Reality and Empathy
Reality and Empathy (June 1984)
Physics, Mind, and Science in the 21st Century
Alex Comfort - Author


Once in a century an overview shakes the mold of preconception and makes a world model fall into shape. This is such a book--absorbing, provocative, original, skeptical, and often very funny in spite of formidable scholarship. The focus of the book is on the change in self-perception which physics might bring about if it were made in some way empathically real to non-physicists. The common man's "existential" attitude is a prod...(Read More)
 
 
Perspective in Whitehead's Metaphysics
Perspective in Whitehead's Metaphysics (June 1983)
Stephen David Ross - Author

Stephen David Ross presents an extensive, detailed, and critical interpretation of Whitehead's mature thought, emphasizing the fundamental role of perspective in Whitehead's cosmology, and tracing the conflicts and difficulties therein to tensions involving perspective in relation to other central features of Whitehead's thought. Ross isolates four principles as having a fundamental role in whitehead's metaphysics: perspective, cosmology, experien...(Read More)
 
 
Philosophical Mysteries
Philosophical Mysteries (June 1981)
Stephen David Ross - Author

This is my major thesis. Mystery is inherent in both the nature of things and the nature of rationality. I will sustain this thesis by a review of some of the central issues of philosophy to elucidate their mysterious qualities. More important, however, I will develop in detail an explanation of mystery and trace some of its important ramifications.

I will argue that an ordinal metaphysics, with its associated theory of query, provides an acc...(Read More)
 
 
The Concept of First Philosophy and the Unity of the Metaphysics of Aristotle
The Concept of First Philosophy and the Unity of the Metaphysics of Aristotle (June 1980)
Giovanni Reale - Author
John R. Catan - Editor/translator

Reale’s monumental work establishes the exact dimensions of Aristotle’s concept of first philosophy and proves the profound unity of concept that exists in Aristotle’s Metaphysics. Reale’s opposition to the genetic interpretation of the Metaphysics is an updated return to a more traditional view of Aristotle’s work, one which runs counter to nearly all contemporary scholarship. Reale argues that Aristo...(Read More)
 
 
The Epochal Nature of Process in Whitehead's Metaphysics
The Epochal Nature of Process in Whitehead's Metaphysics (June 1980)
F. B. Wallack - Author

"While my book attempts to reflect the full range of scholarly debate, I have also attempted to make it useful to anyone interested in Whitehead. To this end, I have introduced the Whiteheadian terms one by one, explaining each in the light of my interpretation, and I have used examples wherever possible. I try to show that Whitehead intended his philosophy have a place in our lives by reshaping our common conceptions, and that he did not intend it ...(Read More)
 
 
Transition to an Ordinal Metaphysics
Transition to an Ordinal Metaphysics (June 1980)
Stephen David Ross - Author

“Metaphysical categories represent different ways in which orders function, not exclusive modes of reality, and orders function in different ways under different circumstances, in different ordinal locations.” ― Stephen David Ross

This book presents the principles and categories of an ordinal metaphysics in relation to the metaphysical tradition and contemporary issues. It represents the only...(Read More)
 
 
A Justification of Rationality
A Justification of Rationality (June 1976)
John Kekes - Author

The aim of this book is to defend rationality against skepticism fideism, and irrationalism. Rationality is an ideal which represents the best in our civilization. The ideal, however, must be reaffirmed from time to time and this is done here by expressing it in a contemporary idiom and by defending it against new doubts. Professor Kekes justifies rationality most convincingly at the same time he demonstrates how important philosophy is for ...(Read More)
