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)

Religion as Art (June 1981)
An Interpretation

He always has just the example he needs at his fingertips, a Tibetan Buddhist text nex...(Read More)

Civilisations and Social Theory (vol. 1)
Anouar Abdel-Malek - Author
M. Gonzalez - Translator

Civilisations and Social Theory takes as its starting point the present as the most decisive period of the transformation of the world since Europe's rise to hegemony in the fifteenth century.

The Immorality of Limiting Growth
The Immorality of Limiting Growth (June 1981)

Its proponents maintain that technological innovation cannot save industrial society because of pollution, over population, and inflation. They call for a transformed society in which productivity, pollution, and population growth are strictly controlled.

This volume emphatically challenges the no-growth viewpoint on both philo...(Read More)
The Investment Frontier
The Investment Frontier (June 1981)
New York Businessmen and the Economic Development of the Old Northwest
John Denis Haeger - Author

The American West did not grow in isolation from the East. On the contrary, New York financiers and other eastern entrepreneurs were crucial to America's western economic development, providing the necessary capital and expertise to transform the West into a productive part of the nation's economy.

This thesis is powerfully demonstrated by John Denis Haeger in this study concerning the "Old Northwest" (the present-day states of Ohio, Michiga...(Read More)
