Divine Power in Process Theism
Divine Power in Process Theism (July 1988)
A Philosophical Critique
David Basinger - Author

"Process theology likes to compare itself favorably to what it calls 'classical theism.' This book takes that comparison seriously and examines process theology's claim to do better than classical theism. Basinger never claims process theology is fundamentally incoherent, but only that as a metaphysical system for making sense of theology, it isn't any better, or even as good as, the older classical systems. The argumentation is clear. It would ...(Read More)
Intersubjectivity and Transcendental Idealism
Intersubjectivity and Transcendental Idealism (July 1988)
James R. Mensch - Author

The threat of solipcism nagged Husserl. The question of the status of others occupied him during the last years of his life and remained a question that seemed to challenge the foundation of his life's work. This book offers new answers to this persistent philosophical question by defining the question in specifically Husserlian terms and by means of a careful examination of Husserl's later texts, including the unpublished Nachlass.

The End of Evil
The End of Evil (July 1988)
Process Eschatology in Historical Context
Marjorie H. Suchocki - Author

"This is a major piece of scholarship. It is clearly and gracefully written. Far from merely summarizing existing process approaches to eschatology, Suchocki intricately works out, for the first time, a systematic treatment of the source and end of evil. The topics of evil, of theodicy, of eschatology, central concerns of Christian theology, receive a systematic treatment here from both an historical and a philosophical perspective. This makes th...(Read More)
The Reenchantment of Science
The Reenchantment of Science (July 1988)
Postmodern Proposals
David Ray Griffin - Editor

This book describes the move from modern, mechanistic science to a post-modern, organismic science. David Ray Griffin gives voice to a revisionary postmodernism, based on the work of Whitehead and Hartshorne that contrasts with the relativistic, nihilistic postmodernism of Heidegger, Derrida, and Wittgenstein. The book brings together some of today's most creative thinking about science.

Griffin's introductory essay summarizes the way in wh...(Read More)
The Specter of the Absurd
The Specter of the Absurd (July 1988)
Sources and Criticisms of Modern Nihilism
Donald A. Crosby - Author

This book is our century's most comprehensive and wise treatment of nihilism in all of its guises, comparing favorably with Rosen, Cavell, and indeed with Spengler. Crosby argues that our culture is genuinely haunted by nihilism expressing itself in the fideism of fundamentalism as well as in the debilitating alienation from all orientation. This results from a one-sided development of Western culture.

Unlike most write...(Read More)
Hegel and His Critics
Hegel and His Critics (July 1988)
Philosophy in the Aftermath of Hegel
William Desmond - Editor

This book deals with fundamental problems in Hegel and with Hegel in relation to Kierkegaard, Marx, Nietzsche, Russell, Heidegger, Husserl, Derrida, and Bataille. It reveals Hegel's power to provoke both critical and creative thought across the complete spectrum of philosophical questions.

William Desmond is the author of Art and the Absolute: A Study of Hegel's Aesthetics and is Chair of Philosophy at Loy...(Read More)
The Korean Neo-Confucianism of Yi Yulgok
The Korean Neo-Confucianism of Yi Yulgok (July 1988)
Young-chan Ro - Author

"The book is clearly, concisely written and discusses complex ideas in an approachable manner. It gives a comprehensive introduction to all major points of Yulgok's thought, placing him within the context of the Neo-Confucian tradition as a whole, as well as his contemporary Korean philosophical environment, while adding an interesting critique from the Western philosophical perspective, based on the work of Heidegger and Gadamer. It also includes...(Read More)
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)
