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)

A Discourse on Novelty and Creation
A Discourse on Novelty and Creation (June 1985)

Discourse on Novelty and Creation is an extremely subtle analysis of the problem of novelty in art, and the catholicity of Hausman's reading makes this work stand out from all other treatments, usually analytical, of this subject.

George di Giovanni - Translated and annotated by
H. S. Harris - Translated and annotated by

This volume fills an important gap in the philosophical literature by providing an anthology of writings from the crucial generation of thinkers between Kant and Hegel. An introductory essay by di Giovanni fits these authors and their work into the context of the general reception of Kant’s Critique of Pure Reason.

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.

“Paul Weiss is a national resource at a time when most philosophers are narrow, technical, and obscure....(Read More)

For the first time, this volume presents a series of critical and constructive studies in the philosophy of J. N. Findlay.

The value of these essays is heightened by Findlay’s own contributions: two autobiographical chapters detail the evolution of his thought and relation...(Read More)
The Effectiveness of Causes
The Effectiveness of Causes (June 1985)
Dorothy Emmet - Author

The Effectiveness of Causes presents a strong view of causation seen as an operation between participants in events, and not as a relation holding between events themselves. In it, Emmet proposes that other philosophical views of cause and effect provide only a world of events, each of which is presented as an unchanging unit. Such a world, she contends, is a "Zeno universe," since transitions and movement are lost.

Emmet offers a mo...(Read More)
