The Disenchantment of Reason
The Disenchantment of Reason (April 1994)
The Problem of Socrates in Modernity
Paul R. Harrison - Author

This book is an examination of nineteenth-century interpretations of Socrates by Hegel, Kierkegaard, and Nietzsche in the light of the contemporary debates over rationality in the modern world.

On Being and What There Is
On Being and What There Is (July 1992)
Classical Vaisesika and the History of Indian Ontology
Wilhelm Halbfass - Author

"It is a comprehensive study of some of the most difficult and poorly understood--yet central--issues of classical Indian philosophy. It covers an amazingly broad range of texts, explaining and analyzing some materials that have never been studied. It offers a synthetic picture of Vaisaesontology and convincingly explicates its 'genius.'
"No one has ever explained the concepts of substance, being, and universal in Vaisaesas comprehensively and ...(Read More)
