Death and the Disinterested Spectator
Death and the Disinterested Spectator (October 1986)
An Inquiry into the Nature of Philosophy
Ann Hartle - Author

"This book is a serious attempt to grapple with an absolutely fundamental question: the nature of philosophy in its relation to theory, practice, and death. The method for dealing with this question is also interesting: to discuss the larger question concretely by examining a philosophical dialogue, a theological and philosophical confession, and a philosophical treatise." -- Carl G. Vaught

Michael Polanyi (October 1986)
A Critical Exposition
Harry Prosch - Author

Michael Polanyi was an eminent physical chemist, economist, and philosopher.

The book contains a complete bibliography of Polanyi's h...(Read More)

Mallarme and the Sublime
Mallarme and the Sublime (August 1986)
Louis W. Marvick - Author

In this groundbreaking study, Louis W. Marvick develops a literary criterion for the quality known as "the sublime," considered as the expression of an attitude towards the ideal--an attitude composed of irony and enthusiasm in varying proportions. The author examines the various theories of the sublime and traces the development of the concept from a rhetorical device to an experience of spiritual insight derived from the genius of the artist. Th...(Read More)
System and History in Philosophy
System and History in Philosophy (July 1986)
On the Unity of Thought & Time, Text & Explanation, Solitude & Dialogue, Rhetoric & Truth in the Practice of Philosophy and its History
Adriaan Theodoor Peperzak - Author

The book begins with the problem of the relationship between systematic philosophy and the history of philosophy. Why does philosophy attach so much importance to history? Consideration of this question is an essential part of metaphysics, and it has important consequences for the methodology of both history and philosophy.

An analysis of the problem that begins the book leads to many other fundamental questions concerning the nature of philo...(Read More)

The Argument of the Tractatus
The Argument of the Tractatus (June 1986)
Its Relevance to Contemporary Theories of Logic, Language, Mind, and Philosophical Truth
Richard McDonough - Author

The Argument of the "Tractatus" presents a single unified interpretation of the Tractatus based on Wittgenstein's own view that the philosophy of logic is the real foundation of his philosophical system. It demonstrates that on this interpretation Wittgenstein's views are far more visionary and relevant to contemporary discussions than has been suspected. A case in point is a new interpretation of Wittgenstein's theory of meaning tha...(Read More)

Whitehead's Metaphysics of Extension and Solidarity
Whitehead's Metaphysics of Extension and Solidarity (June 1986)
Jorge Luis Nobo - Author

At the base of Whitehead's philosophy of organism is a vision of the solidarity of all final actualities. Each actuality is a discrete individual enjoying autonomous self-determination, yet each also requires all other actualities as essential components and partial determinants of its own nature. This vision of universal solidarity, Nobo demonstrates, is the fundamental metaphysical thesis whose truth the categories and principles of Whitehead's ph...(Read More)
