The Golden Mean (March 1994)
James S. Hans - Author

The book explores how the good found in aesthetics is linked to the good found in the ethical codes that govern people's lives.

The book also demonstrates how the concept of a middle path, a straight and narrow way, or...(Read More)

Time and Psychological Explanation
Time and Psychological Explanation (July 1993)
Brent D. Slife - Author

Understanding Human Action
Understanding Human Action (June 1981)

Is human behavior determined in accordance with causal laws available to scientists? Is science capable of making sense of human actions and social life?
