The Effectiveness of Causes
The Effectiveness of Causes (June 1985)
Dorothy Emmet - Author

The Effectiveness of Causes presents a strong view of causation seen as an operation between participants in events, and not as a relation holding between events themselves. In it, Emmet proposes that other philosophical views of cause and effect provide only a world of events, each of which is presented as an unchanging unit. Such a world, she contends, is a "Zeno universe," since transitions and movement are lost.

Emmet offers a mo...(Read More)
 
 
The Emergence of Whitehead's Metaphysics, 1925-1929
The Emergence of Whitehead's Metaphysics, 1925-1929 (June 1985)
Lewis S. Ford - Author


A breathtaking detective story, this book charts the adventure of Whitehead's ideas in a remarkably detailed and careful reconstruction of his metaphysical views. Incorporating heretofore unpublished material from students' notes and correspondence, Professor Ford analyzes the order of composition of various portions of Whitehead's books, principally Science and the Modern World, Religion in the Making, and Process an...(Read More)
 
 
Using Language
Using Language (June 1985)
The Structures of Speech Acts
John T. Kearns - Author

In a pioneer study of how language is actually used, Dr. Kearns combines the rigor of formal logic with a detailed analysis of natural language patterns. Through this double focus, he develops artificial languages that are syntactically more similar to the spoken word than first-order language itself. Numerous diagrams illustrate the evolution of these artificial languages, which represent a significant contribution to both the fields of linguisti...(Read More)

Aesthetics in Everyday Life
Joseph H. Kupfer - Author

"It is a courageous attempt to think philosophically about up-front human concerns without either pandering or resorting to jargon.

Husserl and Heidegger
Husserl and Heidegger (June 1984)
The Question of a Phenomenological Beginning
Timothy J. Stapleton - Author

The phenomenology of Edmund Husserl has decisively influenced much of contemporary philosophy. Yet Husserl's philosophy has come under such criticism that today it is viewed as little more than a historical relic. One of the most important and influential critiques of Husserl's transcendental phenomenology was launched by Martin Heidegger in Being and Time, which radically reinterpreted phenomenology.

Timothy Stapleton returns to the...(Read More)
 
 
Individuals and Individuality
Individuals and Individuality (June 1984)
Brian John Martine - Author

Individuals and Individuality criticizes Hegel's theory of dialectic for eliminating the possibility of irreducible individuality. The argument then goes on to defend and expand Peirce's theory of firstness, secondness, and thirdness as a more nearly adequate account of individuality. The discussion culminates with an interpretation of art as illustrating the essence of individuality.

Brian John Martine lays a foundation for a more com...(Read More)

Richard M. Martin - Author

 
 
Unreality and Time
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. Such an understanding, however, promises to give us more insight and control than the history of past discussions of time would have allowed us to hope." -- Robert S. Brumbaugh

This book recognizes and questions a key assumption about time which is shared by common sense and philosophy-- the assumption...(Read More)
 
 
Eros and Irony
Eros and Irony (June 1983)
A Prelude to Philosophical Anarchism
David L. Hall - Author

"The conception of culture and philosophy's role within it developed in this work permits interesting formulations of a number of important issues and concepts: the relations between the utopian and utilitarian functions of philosophic theory; the character of the aesthetic and mystical sensibilities; the meaning and function of metaphor and of irony; the value of theoretical consensus; the nature of philosophic communication; and the distinctive r...(Read More)
 
 
Existential Technics
Existential Technics (June 1983)
Don Ihde - Author

With Existential Technics, Don Ihde advances his reflections on the role technology plays in human life. Heretofore primarily the province of Continental thinkers, philosophy of technology is a growing preoccupation of North American philosophers. This collection of essays is a philosophical reflection on and critique of human experience from a clearly American perspective guided by phenomenological analysis.

This book is divided int...(Read More)
