After Truth
After Truth (December 1993)
Explorations in Life Sense
Mervyn Sprung - Author

This book begins from the conviction that, in the post-Nietzschean desert of our time, people are left without any means of penetrating those great realms of worth and sense from which philosophy has withdrawn and which science ignores. Yet people are compelled by a profound need to live in a world that secures belief in human worth.

In this unusual soliloquy, the author explores how we might begin to live our way into these trackless...(Read More)
 
 
Mysteries of Attention
Mysteries of Attention (July 1993)
James S. Hans - Author

"The Mysteries of Attention casts a complex argument in very readable terms. Its effort to situate literature in the midst of basic human concerns provides a very attractive alternative to several disabling contemporary habits of critical thought."-- Michael Anania, author of In Plain Sight: Obsessions, Morals and Domestic Laughter

"This book is Hans at his best. His work is evolving into a coherent oeuvre, even an ars poetic...(Read More)
 
 
Founders of Constructive Postmodern Philosophy
Founders of Constructive Postmodern Philosophy (December 1992)
Peirce, James, Bergson, Whitehead, and Hartshorne
David Ray Griffin - Author
John B. Cobb Jr. - Author
Marcus P. Ford - Author
Pete A. Y. Gunter - Author
Peter Ochs - Author

"The work is useful, not only for its exploration of the theme of constructive postmodernism, but also for its presentation of the thought of some of the most important nineteenth and twentieth century philosophers. Each thinker is fascinating in his own right, and the chapters bring out intriguing, provocative aspects of the ideas of each with exceptional force and clarity.

"The topic of constructive postmodernism is highly significant, n...(Read More)
 
 
Metaphors of Interrelatedness
Metaphors of Interrelatedness (October 1992)
Toward a Systems Theory of Psychology
Linda E. Olds - Author

"In an era of ever increasing specialization, both within psychology and between psychology and other 'fields,' this book opens the doors and windows and lets in fresh air. It is a courageous inquiry into knowing in the broadest sense, and a defense of the necessity of this broadest sense if we are to have real progress. If there is hope for the academy to recapture a sense of intellectual mission, instead of functioning as a holding company for n...(Read More)
 
 
In the Throe of Wonder
In the Throe of Wonder (July 1992)
Intimations of the Sacred in a Post-Modern World
Jerome A. Miller - Author

"Jerome Miller has done close to the impossible. He has brought the arcane prose of post-Heideggerian 'philosophy of difference' into contact with our initial wonder before the 'otherness' of the world, and so shown us the import of that current philosophical idiom. The reasoning is as tight as the subject is elusive; here is philosophy being done in a way that mitigates jargon and makes contact with that original wonder which impels us to want t...(Read More)
 
 
Old Tales and New Truths
Old Tales and New Truths (February 1992)
Charting the Bright-Shadow World
James Roy King - Author

"I like the basic thesis--that traditional narratives can be used, rhetorically, by their tellers as conceptual blockbreakers rather than as reinforcers of what is. This point is very well, even enchantingly, made. King adds a new dimension and sophistication to the study of folk narratives cross culturally. -- Sabra J. Webber, The Ohio State University.

This guidebook to the Bright-Shadow World develops three closely related issues. The f...(Read More)
 
 
Primordial Truth and Postmodern Theology
Primordial Truth and Postmodern Theology (October 1989)
David Ray Griffin - Author
Huston Smith - Author

In this book, Huston Smith and David Ray Griffin propose religious philosophies to succeed the waning worldview of modernity. Huston Smith proposes the perennial philosophy or primordial tradition, and David Ray Griffin offers postmodern process theology. The ultimate issue debated is whether we should return to a traditional religious philosophy or seek a new never-before-articulated worldview.

The debate covers the following issues: the re...(Read More)
 
 
Varieties of Postmodern Theology
Varieties of Postmodern Theology (July 1989)
David Ray Griffin - Author
William A. Beardslee - Author
Joe Holland - Author

This book sorts out the confusion created by the use of the term "postmodern" in relation to widely divergent theological positions. Four different types of postmodern theology are distinguished in the preface: constructive, deconstructive, liberationist, and conservative. Two forms of each type are discussed in the book.

Writing from a constructive, postmodern perspective, the authors enter into dialogue with the deconstructive postmodern...(Read More)
 
 
God and Religion in the Postmodern World
God and Religion in the Postmodern World (December 1988)
Essays in Postmodern Theology
David Ray Griffin - Author

The naturalistic theism presented in this book is addressed to readers who have found liberal theology empty or who believe that one cannot be religious and fully rational and empirical at the same time. Griffin shows that the postmodern view is more empirical and rational than that of late modern materialism.

This is not a return to early modern dualistic supernaturalism. The mechanism and sensationalism of Descartes and Newton precluded a...(Read More)
