Get 'em all! kill 'em! : genocide, terrorism, righteous communities by Bruce W Wilshire( Book )

7 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 563 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"To think about genocide and terrorism is to accept an invitation from hell. In fact, hell may be too benign a term, since it makes a kind of sense out of genocide and terrorism and ultimately raises the questions: What is genocide? What sense does it make to kill or disable all members of another group just because they are members of that other group - men, women, children? What sense can we make of genocide? The very meaning of sense threatens to disintegrate." "Get 'Em All! Kill 'Em! is the first systematic attempt to understand what, up until now, has seemed inexplicable. Bruce Wilshire uncovers what seems to be the deepest root of the genocidal urge: disgust and dread in the face of abounding, fecund life itself - swarming, creeping, scurrying, unboundable, and uncontrollable. If his claims about the genocidal urge are true, genocide and terrorism are the ultimate antiecology."--Jacket

Fashionable nihilism : a critique of analytic philosophy by Bruce W Wilshire( Book )

12 editions published in 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 401 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Thoreau wrote that we have professors of philosophy but no philosophers. Can't we have both? Why doesn't philosophy hold a more central place in our lives? Why should it? Eloquently opposing the analytic thrust of philosophy in academia, noted pluralist philosopher Bruce Wilshire answers these questions and more in an effort to make philosophy more meaningful to our everyday lives. Writing in an accessible style he resurrects classic yet neglected forms of inquiring and communicating. In a series of personal essays, Wilshire describes what is wrong with the current state of philosophy in American higher education, namely the cozy but ultimately suffocating confinements of professionalism. He reclaims the role of the philosopher as one who, like Socrates, would goad us out of self-contentedness into a more authentic way of being and knowing."--Jacket
