Injustice and Restitution
Injustice and Restitution (October 1993)
The Ordinance of Time
Stephen David Ross - Author

"The scholarship that informs this book is both broad and deep, excavating and articulating the ideas of justice, law, authority, and community from ancient Greece to the present. The main contribution Ross makes, however, is that he brings this wealth of scholarship to bear upon some of the most acute socio-political problems of our time." -- Calvin O. Schrag, Purdue University

This book addresses the nature and injustice of authority, retr...(Read More)
Philosophy, Theology, and Hegel's Berlin Philosophy of Religion, 1821-1827
Philosophy, Theology, and Hegel's Berlin Philosophy of Religion, 1821-1827 (August 1993)
Philip M. Merklinger - Author

This book examines Hegel's contribution to the debate about the relationship between philosophy and theology, reason and faith. The author locates the debate within the philosophy of religion, displaying that there is a need for philosophy to enter into dialogue with, and to reflect upon, the contents of theology. Utilizing the recently published critical editions of Hegel's Berlin Lectures on the Philosophy of Religion, the author substant...(Read More)
Epistemological Issues in Classical Chinese Philosophy
Epistemological Issues in Classical Chinese Philosophy (August 1993)
Hans Lenk - Editor
Gregor Paul - Editor

This book shows that classic Chinese philosophy is as rational as Western approaches dealing with the problems of logic, epistemology, language analysis, and linguistic topics from a philosophical point of view. It presents detailed analyses of rational and methodological features in Confucianism, Taoist philosophy, and the School of Names as well as Mohist approaches in classical Chinese philosophy, especially in regard to ideas of valid knowledg...(Read More)
Form and Reason
Form and Reason (August 1993)
Essays in Metaphysics
Edward Halper - Author

"Edward Halper's book Form and Reason is an unusual work of striking promise. Although it takes the form of a series of discussions of central arguments in Plato, Aristotle, Hegel, and Nietzsche, Halper's work stands apart from typical scholarship in the field by calling into question not only the reigning interpretations of these seminal figures, but also the entire sweep of the prevailing orthodoxies in philosophy today, from analytic phil...(Read More)
Enlightenment to Enlightenment
Enlightenment to Enlightenment (July 1993)
Intercritique of Science and Myth
Henri Atlan - Author
Lenn J. Schramm - Translator

This book is a thorough and critical, comparative analysis of the logic of modern scientific thought and of traditional teachings generally referred to as mythological and mystical.

Different rationalities with different domains of interest and legitimacy exist, which should not be confused and cannot be unified in any theory of "Ultimate Reality." Atlan suggests they must coexist in practice, although each of them...(Read More)
The Masks of Dionysos
The Masks of Dionysos (May 1993)
A Commentary on Plato's Symposium
Daniel E. Anderson - Author

Anderson takes more seriously than anyone else has the dramatic aspect of the Symposium. Obviously almost everyone pays attention to that feature of the dialogue, most especially Stanley Rosen, to whom Anderson owes a considerable debt. But Anderson pushes this interpretation farther, with mid-Western common sense and an elfin sense of humor. The emphasis on Dionysos is very well taken, for he correctly observes that this theme holds the dial...(Read More)
Rhetoric and Reality in Plato's
Rhetoric and Reality in Plato's "Phaedrus" (March 1993)
David A. White - Author

The Phaedrus is well-known for the splendid mythical panorama Socrates develops in his second speech, and for its graphic descriptions of erotic behavior. This book shows how the details of the myth and the accounts of interaction between lovers are based on a carefully articulated metaphysical structure. It follows the dialogue as narrated, showing how passages that may not appear relevant to metaphysics have been deployed to heighten the vi...(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)
Metaphysics as Foundation
Metaphysics as Foundation (December 1992)
Essays in Honor of Ivor Leclerc
Paul A. Bogaard - Editor
Gordon Treash - Editor

The essays in this book examine the proposition that an interpretation of subjects and subjectivity from the ontological perspective, first outlined by Alfred North Whitehead and elaborated by Ivor Leclerc, provides the foundation that is essential in order to develop a philosophy of nature and human action.

Paul A. Bogaard and Gordon Treash both teach in the Department of Philosophy at Mount Allison Universit...(Read More)
Hegel on Logic and Religion
Hegel on Logic and Religion (August 1992)
The Reasonableness of Christianity
John W. Burbidge - Author

"John Burbidge is widely respected for his book, On Hegel's Logic. This book continues his interest in logic, with special application to the reasonableness of Christianity. It is well organized into three major areas: logic; logic applied; and Christianity. It will enhance the respect in which he is held as a Hegel scholar." -- William Desmond

A distinction often missed by Hegelian interpreters is that, for Hegel, logic fun...(Read More)
