The positive philosophy by Auguste Comte( Book )

10 editions published between 1966 and 2001 in English and held by 592 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Positive Philosophy of Auguste Comte is a condensed English version of the French philosopher's controversial work, freely translated by Harriet Martineau and published in two volumes in 1853. Martineau's abridged and more easily digestible version of Comte's work was intended to be readily accessible to a wide general readership, particularly those she felt to be morally and intellectually adrift, and Comte's philosophy indeed attracted a significant following in Britain in the later nineteenth century. Comte's 'doctrine' promoted personal and public ethics and social cohesion based no longer on metaphysics but on strict scientific method, and anticipated twentieth-century logical positivism and secular humanism. The first volume of this translation contains Parts 1 to 5 and sets out the nature and importance of positivism, leading on to an overview of the 'positive sciences': mathematics, astronomy, physics, chemistry and biology

Being and value : toward a constructive postmodern metaphysics by Frederick Ferré( Book )

10 editions published in 1996 in English and Spanish and held by 358 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Being and Value begins with a discussion on metaphysics, showing the vital relationship between human life and the philosophical placement of value, and emphasizing the current transition from the old mechanical worldview to the postmodern alternative inspired by ecology. Being and Value shows how intimately premodern philosophy bound value into the fabric of things, and analyzes the expulsion of value from factual being during the modern period. Special attention is given to beauty: What is the relationship between the subjective and objective conditions of beauty? Is the beauty of nature merely the product of human appreciation? The answer is that beauty - and value - is a more potent ingredient in the structure of things than modern reductionism allows
Knowing and value : toward a constructive postmodern epistemology by Frederick Ferré( Book )

6 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 352 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Modern thought, finally free from premodern excesses of belief, immediately fell prey to excesses of doubt. This book points toward a postmodern approach to knowing that moves beyond the tired choice between dogma and skepticism. Its key deconstructive aim is to help contemporary philosophers see that their paralyzing modern "epistemological gap" is a myth. Its positive outcome, however, reverses the identification of "postmodern" with deconstruction rather than construction, with the "end of philosophy" rather than renewal in philosophy
Hellfire and lightning rods : liberating science, technology, and religion by Frederick Ferré( Book )

9 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Religion, philosophy, science, or technology - Do they represent methods by which humanity can overcome its problems? Or are they our chief problem? Seeking answers, New-Agers move in one direction, mainline religionists in another. Technologists and scientists move in yet another, many despairing of making vital connections between their disciplines and the wisdom to be found in deeper traditions of religion and philosophy. And fundamentalisms of many sorts beckon those wearied by modernity and its cognitive dissonance. Renowned philosopher Frederick Ferre invites us to contemplate a new world to be constructed out of the debris of modernity. Hellfire and Lightning Rods displays a vision in which the dichotomies between religion, philosophy, science, and technology can be seen as too-narrow construals of a single, but polyvalent, organic world. The world, Ferre argues, must be envisioned organically or be destroyed by stunted and sterile approaches
