Philosophy and Philosophers

This book is about understanding philosophers and their philosophic ideas. It is designed to help the reader understand what philosophy is all about. The text covers philosophers from the 7th Century B. C. to the 20th Century A. D. There is no one definition of philosophy; it is perhaps not so much a subject as it is an activity in which one would engage. Some authors define philosophy as conceptual analysis. One simple approach is to define it as thinking about thinking. Philosophers have developed their own jargon and what they say and write is not understood and may seem complex. It is designed to assist the reader in understanding the subject of philosophy and philosophers.

Leviathan Leviathan Новинка

Leviathan

Throughout his long life Thomas Hobbes (1588-1679) associated with some of the most celebrated thinkers of the age and witnessed some of its most dramatic events; it is therefore no wonder that his philosophy is regarded as among the most original and influential in Western philosophy. Motivated as much by Hobbes' horror of the violence unleashed by the English civil war as his materialistic belief in thought as a mechanical process, "Leviathan" (1651) states the case for complete obedience to an absolute government as the only way of bringing peace and security to society. The true nature of mankind is at the heart of Hobbes' political philosophy, and it is his uncompromising rejection of pre-existing depictions of mankind as the peak of creation in favour of a race naturally compelled to savagery which makes "Leviathan" as challenging and controversial today as it ever was.

Women and Oppression: A Feminist interpretation of 1 Timothy 2:8-15

The study is on New Testament feminist interpretation of 1Timothy 2:8-15. It seems the place of women in the churches today is very much influenced by how this passage is used. A careful reading of the passage seems to suggest a different perspective with regards to how women are perceived in the churches today. It appears women are as suggested by the passage, inferior to men. Although there is clear evidence of woman disciples during Jesus’ time, which Jesus treated equally as men; The passage seems to be silent of this view. The passage therefore seems to be echoing a male human being's views about woman which is androcentric. Moreover, the biblical reading of the creation stories also look biased in this passage. This book seek to interrogate 1Timothy 2:8-15 with the intent to redress patriarchal connotations in the passage which are oppressive to women. It is the argument of this book that women and men are equal and should occupy equal positions in church. An alternative interpretation of the passage which spells out Women and men authority as expressed in Christianity is welcome and healthy in today's relations.

Analytic Philosophy for the perplexed Analytic Philosophy for the perplexed Новинка

Analytic Philosophy for the perplexed

The phrase “analytic philosophy” is ambiguous (it has multiple meanings, and it is not always clear which meaning is intended). It is used variously to refer to: a tradition within late 19th century and 20th century philosophy; one or more of the philosophical doctrines held by philosophers within that tradition; and a method of doing philosophy used by philosophers within that tradition, as well as by philosophers outside that tradition. Analytic philosophy is premised on the contention that the problems of philosophy are essentially problems of language; therefore the clarification of language implies the disappearance of philosophical problems. This book offers a simplified version of the major debates in analytical philosophy.

The View Of Man In The Philosophy Of Pancasila

Pancasila is the name of the five guiding principles of the State of the Republic of Indonesia. It is the basic philosophy that has become the mainstay of the Indonesian democratic life. As the philosophical foundation of the Indonesian State, Pancasila expresses the conception of Indonesian political life, and it has to inspire all political policies. And the most important thing is that Pancasila as philosophy has to help the Indonesian people to understand their world and realities of their lives. As a matter of fact, the primary end of Pancasila as philosophy is not for the good state-which is apart from its people-but it is, in essence, for the good of human being.

Philosophy for Believers

For a serious book of philosophy, where better place to begin to canvass various philosophical concepts and arguments than in relation to what is so familiar to every one of us -- the fact that we all have many and varied beliefs. The book is an introduction of philosophy, indeed intended as an introductory textbook. The author, as he wrote it, had both the teacher and the student in mind. He hopes it will prove a worthy contribution in the college, seminary and university classroom, both interesting and serious. As well as thirteen clearly written chapters introducing the various topics, it is also provided with helpful summaries, tutorials, and work sheets. In considering belief we raise raises many of the central problems philosophers have discussed: knowledge, truth, justification, rationality, meaning, explanation, self deception, interpretation, reality, cause and effect, personal identity, theories, laws, hypotheses, the self, survival, God. Since belief is a universal phenomenon, it has unfortunately become common to understand the unqualified term 'believer' of the religious person. It seems strange to ask the question, 'Are you a believer?' outside the religious context. But we do when we are thinking of a particular theory or ideology or political attitude. We sometimes want to know whether she is 'one of us!' The author sometimes finds it convenient to illustrate his exposition by referring to religious beliefs. One does not have to be a religious believer to see ...

William York Tindall A Reader's Guide to Finnegans Wake

Of all the great books in modern literature, none is more demanding of the reader than Joyce's masterpiece, "Finnegans Wake", and none offers richer rewards to the kind of exegetical criticism William York Tindall provides in "A Reader's Guide to Finnegans Wake". Professor Tindall is acknowledged as one of the great Joycean scholars. He is the author or editor of four other books on Joyce. Over the past thirty years he has been studying and teaching "Finnegans Wake" - learn­ing from as well as instructing a steady stream of graduate students, many of whom have become leading Joycean scholars themselves. This book is the fruit of those thirty years - a close, page by page analysis of the Wake, which opens up the many hermetic meanings throughout the work. Professor Tindall reveals unexpected depths in "Finnegans Wake", and shallows too - for the Wake is a fantastical collection of sur­face puns, allusions, and word plays using a dozen languages - "a verbal brilliance like nothing before or since." Professor Tindall writes: "Finnegans Wake" is one of the few great books of our time. I think it is also one of the funniest. My intention is to help those puzzled by the book to see that it is less formidable than it seems, and to see the fun."

The Law of Success in Sixteen Lessons

Napoleon Hill's The Law of Success in Sixteen Lessons includes the True Philosophy upon which all Personal Success is Built. From Self Confidence to Imagination and all aspects of personality and habits, Hill spells out the steps to success. The Law of Success examines the power of personal beliefs and the role they play in personal success. "What the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve." is one of Hill's hallmark expressions. How achievement occurs and the formula for achieving it are the focal points of Hill's The Law of Success and his later book Think and Grow Rich. Through the encouragement and support of Andrew Carnegie, Napoleon Hill studied the most successful men of industry in order to ascertain what traits each possessed. As part of his research, he interviewed Thomas Edison, Alexander Graham Bell, George Eastman, Henry Ford, Elmer Gates, John D. Rockefeller, Sr., Charles M. Schwab, F.W. Woolworth, William Wrigley, Jr., John Wanamaker, William Jennings Bryan, Joseph Stalin, Theodore Roosevelt, William H. Taft, Woodrow Wilson and Jennings Randolph. As a result of his research, the Philosophy of Achievement was offered as a formula for rags-to-riches success by Hill as a study course called The Law of Success.

In Is Philosophy Androcentric?, Iddo Landau contends that none of the arguments for viewing philosophy as pervasively androcentric ultimately stand up to rational scrutiny, while the ones that show it to be nonpervasively androcentric do not undermine it in the way that many critics have supposed.

"All the world's a stage And all the men and women merely players" (As You Like It, Act 2 Scene 7). This seems particularly true of the mythological and historical folk who have inspired The Bard. William Shakespeare used his knowledge of the classics, history and the Elizabethan men and women who were in the public eye, to bring to life his characters and give them depth and differing character traits. This book takes a look at the stories, whether fact or fable, that gave Shakespeare his ideas and gives indications of what may have motivated the characters in the plays to act as they did.

University of California Publications in Philosophy, Vol. 1 (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from University of California Publications in Philosophy, Vol. 1A pertinent question, however, in this connection is whether the pleasant as such is good, or whether it is good because it is desired. There seems to be no way of answering this question dogmatically. If one insists that for him the pleasant is good, just because it is pleasant, that puts a stop to all discussion. It is well therefore to recognise the ultimateness of this definition of the 'good* as the pleasant, and the justifiability of this usage.The second meaning of 'good' is 'desired.' Whatever we wish for, is in so far 'good' in this signification of the term, which is likewise very common and should no more be criticised than the actually current signification of any other term in general use. It may also be pointed out that it is quite possible to reconcile the definition of 'good' as 'pleasant' and that of 'good' as 'desired,' by referring to the psychological fact that what is pleasant is generally also desired. Now whether we say that a thing is 'good' just because it is pleasant, or whether we say that the pleasant thing is 'good' because as pleasant it is desired, is, as we have already indicated, to be decided only by an arbitrary choice in favor of one or other of the two possible definitions. Personally I must confess that I prefer to merge the first meaning of 'good' as 'pleasant' into the second meaning of it as 'desired,' for the reason that the second can easily be made to include th...

Positive Humanism

Positive humanism is an applied secular humanistic philosophy based on the scientific findings of positive psychology that focuses on personal, professional, and societal flourishing. As an applied philosophy its focus is on ideas that lead to increased well-being. As a secular humanistic philosophy, there are no appeals to the supernatural, the magical, or the mystical. The philosophy is founded on reason and critical thinking. The philosophy is science-based, meaning it is void of the unsupported and/or exaggerated claims and the constant confusing of correlation with causality often found in the self-help genre. The philosophy is grounded in the theories of positive psychology, which is the study of the positive side of the mental health spectrum-human flourishing.

Gesta Romanorum Gesta Romanorum Новинка

Gesta Romanorum

Gesta Romanorum is a Latin collection of anecdotes and tales that was probably compiled about the end of the 13th century or the beginning of the 14th. It still possesses a two-fold literary interest, first as one of the most popular books of the time, and secondly as the source, directly or indirectly, of later literature, in Geoffrey Chaucer, John Gower, Giovanni Boccaccio, Thomas Hoccleve, William Shakespeare, and others. Of its authorship nothing certain is known. It is conjecture to associate it either with the name of Helinandus or with that of Petrus Berchorius (Pierre Bercheure). It is debated whether it took its rise in England, Germany or France. Воспроизведено в оригинальной авторской орфографии издания 1905 года (издательство "London, George Bell & Sons").
