The Crisis of Philosophy
The Crisis of Philosophy (November 1989)
Michael H. McCarthy - Author

This book presents a sympathetic yet critical treatment of the major philosophical attempts to define a viable project for philosophy in the face of historical changes. McCarthy, then, proposes a comprehensive, critical, and methodological strategy of epistemic integration that fully respects the progressive and pluralistic character of contemporary science and common sense.

The programs of Frege, Husserl, Wittgenstein, Carnap, Sellers, Dewe...(Read More)

Recovery of the Measure
Recovery of the Measure (August 1989)
Interpretation and Nature
Robert Cummings Neville - Author

"The world is as we interpret it." Arguing that this assumption is a major and pervasive error, Neville demonstrates that the world is the measure of our interpretations. Distinguishing two traditions of hermeneutics, the continental tradition focusing on the interpretation of texts and the American tradition on the interpretation of nature; Neville argues that, since interpretation itself is part of the natural world, a philosophical vision of na...(Read More)

Chuang-Tzu for Spiritual Transformation
Chuang-Tzu for Spiritual Transformation (July 1989)
An Analysis of the Inner Chapters
Robert E. Allinson - Author

"An exceptional achievement. The main thesis is provocative, disconcerting and convincing--that the purpose of the Chuang-Tzu is to produce an altered state of consciousness in the reader, not to persuade him of the validity of a particular philosophical position. At the same time, the difficulties of particular philosophical positions taken by present-day scholars vis-a-vis the Chuang-Tzu are demonstrated with a nice blend of charit...(Read More)
Hegel's Grand Synthesis
Hegel's Grand Synthesis (July 1989)
A Study of Being, Thought, and History
Daniel Berthold-Bond - Author

This book offers the first genuinely systematic treatment of Hegel's eschatology in the literature. It is an investigation into Hegel's project to demonstrate the ultimate unity of thought and being (consciousness and reality, self and world). The author traces the project through Hegel's epistemology, metaphysics, and philosophy of history.

The grand synthesis creates a basic tension, an ambivalence, that reache...(Read More)
