Physics and the Ultimate Significance of Time
Physics and the Ultimate Significance of Time (December 1985)
Bohm, Prigogine, and Process Philosophy
David Ray Griffin - Editor

Physics and the Ultimate Significance of Time challenges the conventional view of the nature of time. The dominant twentieth-century view, supported by Einstein and many of the founders of quantum theory, implies that time is ultimately unreal. Several new schools of thought reject the notion that physics is temporally symmetrical, and that time could just as easily run backwards. Combating this conventional view of time, this book offers ...(Read More)
Free Will and Values
Free Will and Values (November 1985)
Robert Kane - Author

A philosophical analysis of free will and the relativity of values.

This book shows how two topics of longstanding philosophical interest—free will and value relativism—are connected in unsuspected ways. The ancient doctrine that all values are relative provides clues needed to resolve some important philosophical problems about free will. One of these problems concerns theories that deny the compa...(Read More)

A Meditation on the Authority of Tradition
George Allan - Author

This book examines tradition, the authority of the past, by tracing the process through which emotion and imagination transform everyday experience into an awareness of one's dependence on the work of predecessors. The King Arthur legend serves as a case study, outlining how this authority of tradition creates and sustains meaningful structures of social order.

“This is a strikingly beautiful piece of philosophical...(Read More)
Picturing the World
Picturing the World (November 1985)
John C. Gilmour - Author

Scientists are portrayed as champions of objectivity and truth, and artists as champions of subjectivity and creative expression. Through analysis of modern art, John C. Gilmour shows how misleading is this separation of the world into objective and subjective spheres. This false dichotomy depends upon a dated philosophy of mind. The issues posed are developed from the ideas of Nietzche, Heidegger, Merleau-Ponty, Gadamer, Ricoeur, Wittgenstein, R...(Read More)

The Architectonics of Meaning
The Architectonics of Meaning (October 1985)
Foundations of the New Pluralism
Walter Watson - Author

“This book presents what I take to be the most significant philosophic discovery of the present century. This is the discovery, first, of the fact of pluralism, that the truth admits of more than one valid formulation, and, second, of the reason for this fact in arbitrary or conventional elements inseparable from the nature of thought itself. With this discovery, the very thing that was formerly thought to be a scandal and a disgrace to philoso...(Read More)

I am impressed with the thoroughness and imagination of this book." -- Robert C. Neville

Carl Hausman presents here a sustained and systematic examination of the problems of constructing a framework for unde...(Read More)

Charles Hartshorne and the Existence of God
Charles Hartshorne and the Existence of God (June 1985)
Donald W. Viney - Author

In a lucid and comprehensive study, Professor Viney presents an excellent critical analysis of Hartshorne's thought about God. Demonstrating his thesis from many points of view (ontological, cosmological, teleological, moral, aesthetic, etc.), Viney deftly illustrates Hartshorne's belief that any one argument for God is inconclusive, but that many woven together make up a convincing interpretative expression of the world.
