Inner Experience
Inner Experience (April 1988)
Georges Bataille - Author
Leslie Anne Boldt-Irons - Translation and introduction by

"English readers will now be able to appreciate what many consider Bataille's finest work, undoubtedly one of the outstanding texts of modern French writing, just as they will be able to fill a major gap in the history of post-structuralist thought. Whereas Bataille may be the acknowledged forefather of such figures as Barthes, Foucault, and Derrida, this centrality is often not appreciated by American admirers of the latter."

Moral Analysis
Moral Analysis (April 1988)
Foundations, Guides, and Applications
Louis G. Lombardi - Author

"I would buy this book. All too often philosophers present Kantian and Millian theories at such a level of abstraction that they seem to be totally unrelated to the ethical experience of any human being we know. We need more books that help us make moral decisions, that describe to us the stages we go through in coming to such decisions. There is no other book like this on the market." -- Rosemary Tong, Williams College

This is an introduc...(Read More)
Plato's Theory of Explanation
Plato's Theory of Explanation (March 1988)
A Study of the Cosmological Account in the Timaeus
Anne F. Ashbaugh - Author

"The central thesis regarding the development of 'verisimilar' explanation and its relation to 'true' explanation is thought-provoking, generally well-developed and should prove controversial in the best sense of the word." -- Drew A. Hyland, Trinity College

Here is the question: what constitutes a good explanation of phenomena? Whereas true being (forms) can be known through dialectic, concrete phenomena can only be explained....(Read More)
Individuality (January 1988)
An Essay on the Foundations of Metaphysics
Jorge J. E. Gracia - Author

The author begins by distinguishing six fundamental issues on the metaphysics of individuality. He then proceeds to examine the relation among these issues and to demonstrate that ignorance of the interrelationships has caused confusion in philosophy. In spite of the intricacy of the subject matter, the discussion is always clear, the arguments explicitly evaluated, and the solutions original. In addition, Gracia has assembled an array of histori...(Read More)

The Dilemma of Modernity
The Dilemma of Modernity (October 1987)
Philosophy, Culture, and Anti-Culture
Lawrence Cahoone - Author

"I believe this is the most original and creative philosophy of modern Western culture since The Dialectic of Enlightenment in the 1940s. It shows how even the critics from whom the book draws insights remain within the confines of subjectivism. Cahoone's argument for a non-subjectivist culture, and for non-subjectivist philosophy of culture, makes a decisive contribution to the restoration of philosophy to its proper a...(Read More)

The Puritan Smile
The Puritan Smile (September 1987)
A Look Toward Moral Reflection
Robert Cummings Neville - Author

This book develops a contemporary metaphysics of morals. Currently the liberal tradition defines the field of moral and political theory. It contains the popular utilitarian, the deontological, and the virtue-ethics approaches to normative theory; and by a broad dialectical negation, it also defines the historical materialism of Marx. The Puritan Smile circumvents the Liberalism-Marxism dialectic with the Puritan emphasis on responsibility...(Read More)

Plato on Justice and Power
Plato on Justice and Power (August 1987)
Reading Book I of Plato's Republic
Kimon Lycos - Author

Most commentaries on the Republic rush through Book I with embarrassment because the arguments of the participants, including Socrates, are specious. Beginning with Book II, the arguments are brilliant, so why did Plato write Book I? Lycos shows that the function of Book I is to attack the view that justice is external to the soul--external to the power humans have to render things good--and is merely instrumental to a good society. The dr...(Read More)
