Deracination (February 2001)
Historicity, Hiroshima, and the Tragic Imperative
Walter A. Davis - Author

Attempts to comprehend the traumatic significance of Hiroshima in order to construct a new theory of history.

Through a critique of history—as a reality, a discipline, and a way of writing—Deracination challenges the basic theoretical tenets of both humanism and postmodernism. As a discipline, history is currently undergoing what Heidegger would call a productive “crisis," and a number of th...(Read More)

Presents the first complete account of the thought of David Hartley, one of the most original minds of the eighteenth century.

"This is an outstanding study of the thought of David Hartley, with insights into the interconnections of various strands of his thought: perception theory, self-awareness, language acquisition, moral theory, science, theological doctrines.

Jeff Sugarman - Author

Resolves the fundamental debate between cognitivists and social constructionists concerning the metaphysics of human psychology, and offers new insights into therapy, education, and creativity.

The Paradox of Power and Weakness
The Paradox of Power and Weakness (July 1998)
Levinas and an Alternative Paradigm for Psychology
George Kunz - Author

Offers an alternative paradigm for psychology, one that reflects Levinas's criticism of a self-centered notion of identity. Reveals the secret of an "authentic" altruism through a phenomenology of both power and weakness, and of the paradoxes of the weakness of power and the power of weakness.

The metaethical philosophy of Emmanuel Levinas challenges Western egocentrism by describing the self as egoic yet nevertheless et...(Read More)
Ethics and the Discovery of the Unconscious
Ethics and the Discovery of the Unconscious (July 1997)
John Hanwell Riker - Author

Develops an original and compelling moral psychology that recognizes both the centrality of unconscious motivation and the inescapability of moral responsibility.

This book shows why the discovery of the unconscious by Nietzsche and Freud requires a reconception of the concepts of moral agency and responsibility and even of morality itself. It explicates how contemporary psychology has taken over the traditional task of ...(Read More)
Self and Deception
Self and Deception (July 1996)
A Cross-Cultural Philosophical Enquiry
Roger T. Ames - Editor
Wimal Dissanayake - Editor

Distinguished scholars discuss the problem of self-deception, or rather, self and deception.

"The book is a provocative trailblazer in that it explores the problematic issues of 'self' and 'deception,' and particularly, 'self-deception,' not only from an epistemological perspective but also from cross-cultural dimensions. While the approach is primarily philosophic, the work is pregnant with implications for cognitive sc...(Read More)
Martin Buber and the Human Sciences
Martin Buber and the Human Sciences (June 1996)
Maurice Friedman - Editor

This is the first book on Buber to address the full scope of his seminal influence for any number of thinkers and fields from philosophy to psychotherapy to literary theory.

"This book is timely/past due for a current follow up source to identify the influences of this major twentieth-century thinker on his successors. I found the book hard to put down--despite coming across my desk at a busy end of term. Clearly Buber's...(Read More)
Imagination and Ethical Ideals
Imagination and Ethical Ideals (August 1994)
Prospects for a Unified Philosophical and Psychological Understanding
Nathan L. Tierney - Author

"Tierney gives us an account of moral ideals that is philosophically sophisticated, psychologically realistic, and sensitive to our nature as imaginative moral creatures. Moral philosophy is desperately in need of such an account, if it is going to address the needs and motivations of actual human beings. With brevity, subtlety, and deep insight, Tierney shows us what is unsatisfactory about a morality grounded on universal rules and based on a noti...(Read More)
