Consciousness (January 1991)
Separation and Integration
Neil Rossman - Author

"I believe--emphatically--that an approach such as Rossman's to current work in philosophy of mind is truly needed. It is a judicious inquiry into the "relevance" of the most influential philosophizing today about the nature of consciousness. It will stimulate lively discussions about the relevance of the subject for today's students." -- Gerald E. Myers, Queens College

A central claim of this book is that the emergence of humanity involves a...(Read More)
Philosophy, Social Theory, and the Thought of George Herbert Mead
Philosophy, Social Theory, and the Thought of George Herbert Mead (January 1991)
Mitchell Aboulafia - Editor

"Mead is arguably the greatest neglected American philosopher. In many respects, he ranks with Peirce, James, and Dewey, and in at least one respect beyond them: he is the preeminent theorist of self-other relations after Hegel. Now that this topic has finally made it onto the philosophical agenda, and now that Mead's interdisciplinary approach to it has become an incentive rather than an impediment, the time has come for a serious reception of h...(Read More)
A History of Ancient Philosophy II
A History of Ancient Philosophy II (November 1990)
Plato and Aristotle
Giovanni Reale - Author
John R. Catan - Editor/translator

In this book Reale presents Plato and Aristotle.

At the center of Reale's interpretation of Plato is the fulcrum of the supersensible, the metaphysical discovery that Plato presented as a result of the Second Voyage. This discovery of the supersensible is, in Reale's view, not only the fundamental phase of ancient thought, but it also constitutes a milestone on the path of western philosophy.

Reale presents Plato in three different di...(Read More)
Plato and the Foundations of Metaphysics
Plato and the Foundations of Metaphysics (October 1990)
A Work on the Theory of the Principles and Unwritten Doctrines of Plato with a Collection of the Fundamental Documents
Hans Joachim Kramer - Author
John R. Catan - Editor/translator

This is a book about the relationship of the two traditions of Platonic interpretation -- the indirect and the direct traditions, the written dialogues and the unwritten doctrines. Kramer, who is the foremost proponent of the Tubingen School of interpretation, presents the unwritten doctrines as the crown of Plato's system and the key revealing it.

Kramer unfolds the philosophical significance of the unwritten doctrines in their fullness. H...(Read More)
Derrida and Indian Philosophy
Derrida and Indian Philosophy (October 1990)
Harold Coward - Author

This book establishes a constructive and mutually stimulating dialogue between Jacques Derrida and Eastern thought. Surprising parallels are found with some traditional Indian philosophies of language, especially with the Hindu philosopher Bhartrhari, and with the Chinese Taoists. Conversely, the views of SAankara and Nagarjuna on language definitely differ from those of Derrida.

Derrida and Indian Philosophy builds a bridge by which...(Read More)
William James's Radical Reconstruction of Philosophy
William James's Radical Reconstruction of Philosophy (October 1990)
Charlene Haddock Seigfried - Author

"This is the most intelligent and authoritative study of James's works I know. Seigfried's treatment is complete, objective, subtle. Anyone seriously interested in James studies will have to reckon with Seigfried's assessment." -- Nancy Frankenberry

"I like the way Seigfried combines a comprehensive scope with a detailed and nuanced understanding of specific texts and particular positions. Also I like the way she shows how James's reconstru...(Read More)
The Self-Overcoming of Nihilism
The Self-Overcoming of Nihilism (October 1990)
Keiji Nishitani - Author
Graham Parkes - Translator
Setsuko Aihara - Translator

"As a past reader of Nishitani in both the original Japanese and English translation, I find this manuscript to be the most accessible and clearly written of any book-length work I have read by him. It shows Nishitani as a vital and vigorous thinker, and serves as an introduction to his widely acclaimed Religion and Nothingness.

"The summaries of the relation to nihilism of Hegel, Schopenhauer, Kierkegaard, Feuerbach, and Stirner, ...(Read More)
Nietzsche as Postmodernist
Nietzsche as Postmodernist (September 1990)
Essays Pro and Contra
Clayton Koelb - Edited and with an introduction by

"This book addresses the quite timely question of the place of Nietzsche's thought with respect to the Western tradition; the question whether Nietzsche defines or denies the very notion of philosophy as a tradition. With recent shifts in philosophical movements, especially those following in the wake of Heidegger, Nietzsche's work, always of interest, takes on a new and enlarged significance. The topic is extraordinarily timely and significant no...(Read More)
Autonomy and Social Interaction
Autonomy and Social Interaction (August 1990)
Joseph H. Kupfer - Author

"It is enjoyable and interesting to read. It deals with genuine moral issues in a philosophically sophisticated way that does not lose touch with ordinary human life." -- Edward Sankowski, University of Oklahoma

"It shows in very concrete terms the ways in which autonomy is the basis for the structure of certain relationships. The author does an excellent job of moving back and forth between discussions that are theoretical i...(Read More)
A Path into Metaphysics
A Path into Metaphysics (July 1990)
Phenomenological, Hermeneutical, and Dialogical Studies
Robert E. Wood - Author

"This is a brilliant 'introduction' to metaphysics, beginning with the creation of a metaphysical system (Part I) and then defending it through a reading of the Western tradition (Part II). The writing is clear and persuasive throughout; it does not presuppose antecedent knowledge of the tradition, or of any present context defining 'metaphysics.' Rather, the book develops what it needs of those things as it goes along; hence it would be splendid a...(Read More)
