Sociology and Interpretation
Sociology and Interpretation (July 1996)
From Weber to Habermas
Charles A. Pressler - Author
Fabio B. Dasilva - Author

Explores the contributions to interpretive sociology of major Continental social theorists and examines the ways in which these individuals enrich our understanding of the art of being human.

Interpretive sociology involves the consideration of not only sense evidence, but also of meanings, affects, and other subjective phenomena. Sociologists and social philosophers have attempted to understand social behavior through o...(Read More)

AIDS, Reproductive Technology, and Ethics
Julien S. Murphy - Author

This book takes a phenomenological approach to feminist issues in medical ethics: AIDS and reproductive technology.
This book contributes to new directions in medical ethics by using recent philosophical theories, such as phenomenological, deconstruction, and post-structuralism, and extends philosophical analysis to allow for the influences of politics, cultural difference, and history on ethics. The author views AIDS from several diffe...(Read More)

Listening, Playing, Creating (February 1995)
Essays on the Power of Sound
Carolyn Bereznak Kenny - Author

This is a book on the therapeutic quality of music. Musicians, philosophers, music therapists, and others discuss their experiences.
"I like the book's immense variety of well articulated statements with regard to musical experience--the opportunity to enter into intelligent, sensitive personal viewpoints that are rarely or never expressed. I enjoy the mixture of poetic, imaginative thinking with a more analytical treatment of the subject...(Read More)
 
 
Cezanne and Modernism
Cezanne and Modernism (January 1995)
The Poetics of Painting
Joyce Medina - Author

This book explores how traditional relations among the arts have changed in our time, focusing on the radical transformation of Paul Cezanne.
This book explores the contemporary modification of traditional relations among the arts. Interpreting Cezanne as a founder of Modernism, it focuses on an aesthetics of the image (with roots in Bergson, Heidegger, and Merleau-Ponty) of equivalent value across the arts and in literature.
The auth...(Read More)
 
 
Identification and Character
Identification and Character (November 1994)
A Book on Psychological Development
Howard Kamler - Author

This book tells the reader all about psychological identification, the single most important process for becoming, maintaining, or changing who we are as characters. The book's emphasis, though, is decidedly on identification's role in our becoming who we are. It is one thing for people to have an image of who they are or of who they would like to be, it is quite another for them to actually become that image. Through genuinely identifying...(Read More)
 
 
Jose Ortega y Gasset's Metaphysical Innovation
Jose Ortega y Gasset's Metaphysical Innovation (November 1994)
A Critique and Overcoming of Idealism
Antonio Rodriguez Huescar - Author
Jorge Garcia-Gomez - Editor/translator

"This book presents the main argument that Ortega y Gasset brought forth in his attempted renovation of Western philosophy. The radicality of Ortega's treatment of the Idealism/Realism issue makes it important for philosophy per se. It is one of the best, clearest and most penetrating presentation of Ortega in the English language. The writing is remarkable, the translation excellent." -- Anna-Teresa Tymieniecka, The World Institute for Advanced Phe...(Read More)
 
 
Mind as Mirror and the Mirroring of Mind
Mind as Mirror and the Mirroring of Mind (October 1994)
Buddhist Reflections on Western Phenomenology
Steven W. Laycock - Author

"What I like most about this book is its remarkable breadth, the author's astonishingly thorough mastery of the work of both Buddhist thinkers and Continental phenomenologists, the integrative approach which goes beyond mere comparison and works with basic problems in such a way as to bring in ideas where they are relevant, whatever their source, a fairness and balance in the critical discussion of writers with whom the author may not be in agreemen...(Read More)
 
 
Recovering the Ground
Recovering the Ground (October 1994)
Critical Exercises in Recollection
William H. Poteat - Author

This book sets forth an ontological Copernican revolution. By means of a critical phenomenology, it shifts the axis of reflection from the putatively bedrock dualisms in which philosophy was conceived, to our lively, intentional mindbodies that are ontologically antecedent to, beyond the grasp of, yet implicated in, all reflection.

In these exercises, reflection's center of gravity is shifted to our mindbodies, whose meditated what...(Read More)
 
 
In the First Country of Places
In the First Country of Places (September 1994)
Nature, Poetry, and Childhood Memory
Louise Chawla - Author

"I have a great respect for the way in which Dr. Chawla has been able to address and integrate a diverse set of literatures--environmental psychology, developmental psychology, phenomenology, literature and literary criticism, nature studies, and feminist theory. I am not surprised at the breadth of her insights because she has been so clear about her hermeneutic and phenomenological approach to the questions about childhood memories, nature, and d...(Read More)
 
 
Interpretations on Behalf of Place
Interpretations on Behalf of Place (July 1994)
Environmental Displacements and Alternative Responses
Robert Mugerauer - Author

In this book, Mugerauer emphasizes the interplay between European continental philosophy and North American environments and architecture. Drawing on a keen understanding of conceptual trends in both scholarship and the design professions, he clarifies various competing philosophical visions and their considerably different perspectives on environment, place, and architecture. The book covers Derrida's deconstruction, Foucault's genealogy, Heidegg...(Read More)
