Michael Polanyi's Postmodern Philosophy
Jerry H. Gill - Author

The Tacit Mode exposes and explores the central insights in Michael Polanyi's major works. It focuses on his epistemological insights concerning tacit knowing, and explores their ramifications for philosophy, science, art, language, political theory, and religion.

Toward a Constructive Postmodern Epistemology
Frederick Ferre - Author

Offers a postmodern theory of knowledge based on an ecological worldview that stresses real relations and the pervasiveness of values.

Modern thought, finally free from premodern excesses of belief, immediately fell prey to excesses of doubt.

A Society Fit for Human Beings (October 1997)
E. M. Adams - Author

Argues for a humanistic cultural reformation to counter our materialistic values and science-dominated intellectual life and shows how this would affect our lives and transform our society.

Kazantzakis and God (October 1997)

He also treats Kazantzakis in relation to process theology, thereby greatly illuminating Kazantzakis's religious vision. Kazantzakis, well...(Read More)

Explains how human social evolution has led both to worthwhile achievements and moral horrors and provides perspective on today's planetary crisis by viewing it as a transition within the larger picture of social evolution.

A Postmodern Exploration
David Ray Griffin - Author

Examines why parapsychology has been held in disdain by scientists, philosophers, and theologians, explores the evidence for ESP, psychokinesis, and life after death, and suggests that these phenomena provide support for a meaningful postmodern spirituality.

"This elegantly written book shows a greater command of the empirical data than any other work on the subject by a philosopher, and no other philosophical work on th...(Read More)
