Pragmatism's advantage : American and European philosophy at the end of the twentieth century by Joseph Margolis( )

14 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,947 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book centers on the principal exchanges involving pragmatism and continental movements. It is a detailed and unique account of the views of the most important and influential American and European figures. The book's argument relies on an inventive union of Hegelian and Darwinian commitments and on the need to explore themes implicated but often scanted in contemporary pragmatist and continental philosophy.--[book cover]
Interpretation radical but not unruly : the new puzzle of the arts and history by Joseph Margolis( )

15 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 1,811 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The arts and the definition of the human : toward a philosophical anthropology by Joseph Margolis( )

15 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 1,623 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Arts and the Definition of the Human" introduces a novel theory that our selves - our thoughts, perceptions, creativity, and other qualities that make us human - are determined by our place in history, and more particularly by our culture and language. Margolis rejects the idea that any concepts or truths remain fixed and objective through the flow of history and reveals that this theory of the human being (or "philosophical anthropology") as culturally determined and changing is necessary to make sense of art. He shows that a painting, sculpture, or poem cannot have a single correct interpretation because our creation and perception of art will always be mitigated by our historical and cultural contexts. Calling upon philosophers ranging from Parmenides and Plato to Kant, Hegel, and Wittgenstein, art historians from Damisch to Elkins, artists from Van Eyck to Michelangelo to Wordsworth to Duchamp, Margolis creates a philosophy of art interwoven with his philosophical anthropology which pointedly challenges prevailing views of the fine arts and the nature of personhood
Pragmatism ascendent : a yard of narrative, a touch of prophecy by Joseph Margolis( )

13 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 1,581 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pragmatism Ascendent is the last of four volumes on the contribution of pragmatism to American philosophy and Western philosophy as a whole. It covers the period of American philosophy's greatest influence worldwide, from the second half of the 20th century through the beginning of the 21st. The book provides an account of the way pragmatism reinterprets the revolutionary contributions of Kant and Hegel, the significance of pragmatism's original vision, and the expansion of classic pragmatism to incorporate the strongest themes of Hegelian and Darwinian sources. In the process, it addresses m
Pragmatism without foundations : reconciling realism and relativism by Joseph Margolis( Book )

25 editions published between 1986 and 2007 in English and held by 1,351 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this remarkable book, Joseph Margolis, one of America 's leading and most celebrated philosophers, examines the relationship between two apparently contradictory philosophical tendencies - realism and relativism. In order to examine the relationship between the two, Margolis establishes a taxomony of different kinds of realism and different kinds of relativism. Drawing on both the analytic and Continental traditions, he examines (from a pragmatic point of view) the various relationships between these two tendencies in the light of two major developments in modern philosophy - the concern fo

Culture and cultural entities : toward a new unity of science by Joseph Margolis( Book )

20 editions published between 1983 and 2009 in English and held by 890 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Culture and Cultural Entities provides an original philosophical analysis of the nature and explanation of cultural phenomena, with special attention to ontology and methodology. It addresses in depth such topics as: the relation between physical and biological nature and cultural phenomena; the analysis of intentionality; the nature and explanation of action; causality; causal explanation and the unity of science; theories of language; historicity; animal and human intelligence; psychological and social phenomena; technology and evolution. Its approach features a form of non-reductive materialism, examines a wide range of views, and is highly readable, making it suitable for professionals, advanced undergraduate and graduate students, and an informed general audience. A new chapter was added to give a sense of pertinent trends since the appearance of the first edition, particularly with respect to the history of philosophy, pragmatism, the unity of science, and evolution. The unity, scope, and simplicity of the theory are well-regarded."--Résumé de l'éditeur
