Philosophical Mysteries
Philosophical Mysteries (June 1981)
Stephen David Ross - Author

This is my major thesis. Mystery is inherent in both the nature of things and the nature of rationality. I will sustain this thesis by a review of some of the central issues of philosophy to elucidate their mysterious qualities. More important, however, I will develop in detail an explanation of mystery and trace some of its important ramifications.

I will argue that an ordinal metaphysics, with its associated theory of query, provides an acc...(Read More)
Reconstruction of Thinking
Reconstruction of Thinking (June 1981)
Robert Cummings Neville - Author

"I believe this to be a truly important book. It is the first genuinely neo-Whiteheadian offering on a large, systematic scale." -- Donald W. Sherburne

"The architectonic of the book is a marvelously creative application of Plato's divided line. Like nested boxes, each part is at a level of perspective different from the others; each chapter within each part rehearses those same levels; each section within each part does likewise; and even ...(Read More)
Wittgenstein and Phenomenology
Wittgenstein and Phenomenology (June 1981)
A Comparative Study of the Later Wittgenstein, Husserl, Heidegger, and Merleau-Ponty
Nicholas F. Gier - Author

In the first in-depth philosophical study of the subject, Nicholas Gier examines the published and unpublished writings of Ludwig Wittgenstein, to show the striking parallels between Wittgenstein and phenomenology.  Between 1929 and 1933, the philosopher proposed programs that bore a detailed resemblance to dominant themes in the phenomenology of Husserl and some “life-world” phenomenologists. This sound, thoroughly readable...(Read More)
Existence, Truth, and Probability
Existence, Truth, and Probability (June 1980)
Hugues Leblanc - Author

This book includes some of the most original and influential contributions to logic and the philosophy of logic during the past twenty years. It contains thirty-five essays, many of which started new trends in logic. For example, some of the essays in Part One gave birth to what is now known as free logic, and some of the essays in Part Two were among the earliest contributions to what is now known as truth-value semantics. The essays in Part Three...(Read More)

Richard M. Martin - Author

The Concept of First Philosophy and the Unity of the Metaphysics of Aristotle
The Concept of First Philosophy and the Unity of the Metaphysics of Aristotle (June 1980)
Giovanni Reale - Author
John R. Catan - Editor/translator

Reale’s monumental work establishes the exact dimensions of Aristotle’s concept of first philosophy and proves the profound unity of concept that exists in Aristotle’s Metaphysics. Reale’s opposition to the genetic interpretation of the Metaphysics is an updated return to a more traditional view of Aristotle’s work, one which runs counter to nearly all contemporary scholarship. Reale argues that Aristo...(Read More)
The Epochal Nature of Process in Whitehead's Metaphysics
The Epochal Nature of Process in Whitehead's Metaphysics (June 1980)
F. B. Wallack - Author

"While my book attempts to reflect the full range of scholarly debate, I have also attempted to make it useful to anyone interested in Whitehead. To this end, I have introduced the Whiteheadian terms one by one, explaining each in the light of my interpretation, and I have used examples wherever possible. I try to show that Whitehead intended his philosophy have a place in our lives by reshaping our common conceptions, and that he did not intend it ...(Read More)

“Metaphysical categories represent different ways in which orders function, not exclusive modes of reality, and orders function in different ways under different circumstances, in different ordinal locations.” ― Stephen David Ross

This book presents the principles and categories of an ordinal metaphysics in relation to the metaphysical tradition and contemporary issues. It represents the only...(Read More)
