Idealism: a critical survey by A. C Ewing( Book )

46 editions published between 1933 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 941 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1934, this book evaluates the characteristic doctrines of the idealism which dominated philosophy during the last century. It seeks to combine realism, as to epistemology and physical objects, with a greater appreciation of views which emphasize the unity and rationality of the universe. This work is not a history and does not try to compete with any histories of idealism but it instead reaches an independent conclusion on certain philosophical problems by criticising what others have said. The book considers differing arguments in order to determine their validity
The definition of good by A. C Ewing( Book )

37 editions published between 1917 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 910 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although less immediately and obviously practical, Dr. Ewing argues that the former question is more fundamental since it raises the issue of whether ethics is explicable wholly in terms of something else, for example, human psychology. Ewing states in his preface that the definition of goodness needs to be confirmed before one decides on the place value is to occupy in our conception of reality or on the ultimate characteristics which

Kant's treatment of causality by A. C Ewing( Book )

30 editions published between 1924 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 672 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1924, this book examines one of the main philosophical debates of the period. Focusing on Kant's proof of causality, A.C. Ewing promotes its validity not only for the physical but also for the ""psychological"" sphere. The subject is of importance, for the problem of causality for Kant constituted the crucial test of his philosophy, the most significant of the Kantian categories. The author believes that Kant's statement of his proof, while too much bound up with other parts of his particular system of philosophy, may be restated ""in a form which it can stand by itself a
The morality of punishment with some suggestions for a general theory of ethics by A. C Ewing( Book )

Ewing considers both the retributive theory and the deterrent theory on the subject whilst remaining commendably unprejudiced. The book examines the views which emphasize the reformation of the offender and the education of the community as objects of punishment. It also deals with a theory of reward as a compliment to a theory of punishment. Dr. Ewing's treatment of the topics is philosophical yet he takes in to account the practical considerations t
