A Philosophical Critique
Ilham Dilman - Author

This study is a critique of Quine's views on three interrelated topics that figure prominently in his work and on which he has developed very distinctive opinions.

Unreality and Time (June 1984)
Robert S. Brumbaugh - Author

"The understanding of time proves an even more complex enterprise than any past explanatory definitions, models, or metaphors have suggested.

Hegel's Concept of God (June 1983)
Quentin Lauer - Author

Presents the first comprehensive view of Hegel’s contribution to the God-question.

An Evaluation of Western 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)
