Native American worldviews : an introduction by Jerry H Gill( Book )

5 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 583 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this survey of Native American worldviews, philosopher of religion Jerry H. Gill emphasizes the value and broad contours of Native American belief systems. He presents an integrated view to serve as an introduction to ways of life and perspectives on the world far different from those of the dominant Euro-American culture." "Drawing on the scholarship of anthropologists and specialists in American Indian Studies, Gill brings together much original research in broad, accessible chapters. He explores Native American origin stories, the special connotations given to spatial concepts such as the cardinal directions and the circle, the influence of the seasons and the cycles of life on different cultures, and clan and kinship systems. Separate chapters are devoted the key ceremonies and customs as well as to concepts of health, harmony, virtues, wisdom, and beauty."--Jacket

If a chimpanzee could talk and other reflections on language acquisition by Jerry H Gill( Book )

7 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and Japanese and held by 369 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book relates several case studies of language acquisition--for example, chimpanzees "learning" to speak at a higher level than so-called 'wolf' children and a father and mother who, against the advice of professionals, force their way into the closed world of an autistic son--to examine the threshold of language, that point "between speech and not quite speech." The book provides accounts of the deaf and blind Helen Keller, of chimpanzees like Washoe, and of feral children such as Victor, the "wild child of Aveyron," and puts a new spin on their stories. The book asks when the miracle that most people take for granted, speech, starts, and where that power to transform perception and action into thought comes from. It asks the reader to think again about how a person says what he or she means, how a person means what he or she says, and where it all starts in the first place. Following a preface and an introduction, chapters in the book are: (1) If a Chimpanzee Could Talk; (2) Wolf Children and Language Acquisition; (3) The Case of Helen Keller; (4) Autism and Language Acquisition; (5) Psychology, Language, and Knowledge; (6) Forked Tongues, Otherness, and Understanding; (7) Language and Reality: The Work of Benjamin Lee Whorf; and (8) a Point of Departure.

The tacit mode : Michael Polanyi's postmodern philosophy by Jerry H Gill( Book )

10 editions published in 2000 in English and German and held by 324 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Tacit Mode exposes and explores the central insights in Michael Polanyi's major works. It focuses on his epistemological insights concerning tacit knowing, and explores their ramifications for philosophy, science, art, language, political theory, and religion. The notion of tacit knowledge reconstructs the modern concept of objectivity while avoiding the self-stultifying effects of "deconstructivist" postmodernism and puts Polanyi on the cutting edge of contemporary philosophy. --From publisher's description

Deep postmodernism : Whitehead, Wittgenstein, Merleau-Ponty, and Polanyi by Jerry H Gill( Book )

7 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a winning and accessible critique of postmodernist philosophy. Postmodernism is a term used to describe a contemporary school of philosophy that takes a highly critical stance toward the conceptual underpinnings of the modern worldview. In this critical assessment of postmodernism, philosopher Jerry Gill argues that, however insightful the critiques of the postmodernists, they did little or nothing to offer constructive approaches to overcoming the impasse their criticism of modernism created. Instead, he turns to an earlier generation of 20th century philosophers - Alfred Whitehead, Ludwig Wittgenstein, Maurice Merleau-Ponty, and Michael Polanyi - who anticipated later postmodern trends but offered alternative approaches to the dilemmas of modernism regarding the nature of reality, knowledge, and language
