Insights and Oversights of Great Thinkers
Insights and Oversights of Great Thinkers (June 1983)
An Evaluation of Western Philosophy
Charles Hartshorne - Author

One learns a great deal about a major philosopher by coming to appreciate his perspective on the history of philosophy. Here Charles Hartshorne gives us just such a perspective on the history of philosophy and thereby on himself. This is a reexamination of the history of philosophy, looking at neglected aspects of the philosophers' thought, interpreting their views in a sharply focused, controversial manner in order to show the origins and develop...(Read More)
 
 
The Quest for Wholeness
The Quest for Wholeness (June 1983)
Carl G. Vaught - Author

"This book has been written for the artist, for the theologian, and for the philosopher, each of whom must be concerned with the question, "What does it mean to be human?" But at a deeper level, it is written for any reader who knows what it means to be fragmented, and who is willing to undertake a quest for wholeness in experiential and reflective terms." -- from the Preface

The Quest for Wholeness is a philosophic odyssey into humank...(Read More)
 
 
The Spirit of American Philosophy
The Spirit of American Philosophy (June 1983)
John Smith - Author

"Smith is the leading figure in the 'reconstruction' of American philosophy and his work is always informed, clear, forthright and philosophically sound.

When in Rome
When in Rome (June 1983)
An Introduction to Relativism and Knowledge
Nancy L. Gifford - Author

"The book deals with an issue that is intrinsically important (philosophical relativism) and with a topic that an introductory audience would find immediately interesting. In short, the author has succeeded in addressing a popular audience about an important problem that they will already be interested in because of the prevalence of relativism itself in contemporary culture." -- Carl G. Vaught, Pennsylvania State University

"A book of just ...(Read More)
 
 
Whitehead, Process Philosophy, and Education
Whitehead, Process Philosophy, and Education (June 1983)
Robert S. Brumbaugh - Author

This book shows clearly how philosophy can be applied to education in an effective manner. It is applied metaphysics in the fullest sense—a truly practical philosophy book.

Robert Brumbaugh shows convincingly how our current educational practices are based on a metaphysics derived from seventeenth-century physics. Our modern understanding of reality implies a very different view of education and very different edu...(Read More)
 
 
A Theory of Art
A Theory of Art (June 1982)
Inexhaustibility by Contrast
Stephen David Ross - Author

The richness of art is manifested in contrast: contrast with other works of art, other features of human experience, other times and places, and other forms of judgment and understanding. The possibilities of contrast are inexhaustible. Every being shares this inexhaustibility of openness to novel possibilities, although inexhaustibility is most fully realized in art.

The general theory of art and aesthetic value developed in this book is ...(Read More)
 
 
Religion as Art
Religion as Art (June 1981)
An Interpretation
Thomas R. Martland - Author

Religion in its most authentic part is an art form. Religion does what art does. This idea is richly illustrated and supported by materials of diverse origin. The vast range of the author's experience in the arts and in religious texts and works of aesthetics allows him to lay hold of a great mass of disparate material and to bring out new dimensions in all of it. He always has just the example he needs at his fingertips, a Tibetan Buddhist text nex...(Read More)
 
 
Understanding Human Action
Understanding Human Action (June 1981)
Social Explanation and the Vision of Social Science
Michael A. Simon - Author

Is human behavior determined in accordance with causal laws available to scientists? Is science capable of making sense of human actions and social life? This book is a penetrating inquiry into the question of what social science is all about. In it, Michael A. Simon challenges the prevailing view with his thesis that the social sciences are sciences in name only, and are based upon the freedom and uniqueness of the human subjects of scientif...(Read More)

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)
