R1,044 Discovery Miles 10 440 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

This volume is a "state-of-the-art" assessment of comparative philosophy written by some of the leading practitioners of the field. While its primary focus is on gaining methodological clarity regarding the comparative enterprise of "interpreting across boundaries," the book also contains new substantive essays on Indian, Chinese, Japanese, and European thought. The contributors are Roger T. Ames, William Theodore de Bary, Wingy2Dtsit Chan, A. S. Cua, Eliot Deutsch, Charles Hartshorne, Daya Krishna, Gerald James Larson, Sengaku Mayeda, Hajime Nakamura, Raimundo Panikkar, Karl H.

Comparative or cross-cultural philosophy can be seen as a relative newcomer to the field of philosophy. It has its antecedents in the emergence of comparative studies in nineteenth-century European intellectual history, as well as in the sequence of East-West Philosophers' Conferences at the University of Hawaii, which began in 1939. This book will prove to be of great significance in helping to define a field that is only now becoming fully self-conscious, methodologically and substantively, about its role and function in the larger enterprises of philosophy and comparative studies.

Persons and Valuable Worlds - A Global Philosophy (Hardcover): Eliot Deutsch Persons and Valuable Worlds - A Global Philosophy (Hardcover)
Eliot Deutsch
R2,661 R2,450 Discovery Miles 24 500 Save R211 (8%) Out of stock

Persons and Valuable Worlds argues for pluralistic ethics, philosophical anthropology, and epistemology in a cross-cultural context. It provides an account of what it means to be a genuine social and spiritual being what it means to be a person in the diverse worlds of which we are a part, and to which we contribute in significant ways. It further strives to reintegrate moral and value considerations into philosophy throughout the range of its inquiries. The work is organized into four parts. Part I deals precisely with personhood and includes areas of inquiry such as the performance of emotions and the nature of the body and of consciousness/mind. The following section focuses on questions of rationality and discusses various forms of rationality and rational practices that integrate value considerations at their core. In Part III, Deutsch analyzes the ontological or metaphysical problems of time and space causality, creativity, and freedom. The final section sets forth the conditions for a creative morality and creative anarchism, concluding with a discussion of human destiny and death."

A Companion to World Philosophies (Paperback, New Ed): Eliot Deutsch, Ron Bontekoe A Companion to World Philosophies (Paperback, New Ed)

Written by an international assembly of leading philosophers, this volume offers students, teachers and general readers a rich and sophisticated introduction to the major non-Western philosophical traditions - particularly Chinese, Indian, Buddhist and Islamic philosophies. African and Polynesian thinking are also covered by way of historical and contemporary survey articles.

The text is organized around a series of central topics concerning conceptions of reality and divinity, of causality, of truth, of the nature of rationality, of selfhood, of humankind and nature, of the good, of aesthetic values, and of social and political ideals. Outstanding scholars present essays that articulate the distinctive ways in which these specific problems have been formulated and addressed in the non-Western traditions against the background of their varied historical and cultural presuppositions.

This volume is a collection of critical studies of Professor J. N. Mohanty's work on phenomenology and Indian philosophy. The essays were written especially for this collection by philosophers from India, Europe, the United States, and Australia. The concluding chapter of this volume contains his assessment of his own philosophical position and his response to his critics. The diversity of the topics on which Mohanty has written attests to the multidimensional character and fecundity of his work. The writings in this new collection make the multifaceted character of Mohanty's writings obvious and facilitate the sort of 'comparative philosophy' which Mohanty himself has pursued so vigorously.

"A person, I want to argue is not a given but an achievement." So opens Eliot Deutsch's provocative study, a work that sets forth new possibilities for understanding the nature of creativity and the means by which human beings fashion themselves and their worlds. Professor Deutsch develops an innovative way of moving beyond the limitations of traditional rationalism, empiricism, and analytical philosophy of mind to frame a new conception of what it means to be a person.

R523 R482 Discovery Miles 4 820 Save R41 (8%) Out of stock

This book is the only comprehensive introduction to Advaita Vedanta that traces the history of this tradition by means of primary sources. The sources (in translation) are drawn from Sanskrit texts by some of the most important Advaitic thinkers. The editors have filled in the appropriate background materials to make this a book through which readers can understand Advaita Vedanta both in terms of cultural history and philosophy. The book reveals the classical form of this great tradition of thought showing how it actually functioned in Indian culture and demonstrates its distinctive philosophical achievements. Most often associated with the great 9th century sage Sankara, Advaita Vedanta is the most important and influential school of philosophy in India. However, unlike Western philosophy, the goal of this Indian wisdom tradition is spiritual liberation in life. The translations in THE ESSENTIAL VEDANTA are representative of the major traditional Sanskrit writings on this ancient but vibrant system of thought.
