The limits of language by Stephen David Ross( Book )

9 editions published between 1994 and 1996 in English and held by 297 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Limits of Language concerns itself with the nature and limits of language at a time when our understanding of the world and of ourselves is intimately related to what we understand of language. It offers a detailed examination of different approaches to, and claims about, language drawn from the variety of orientations taken toward it, primarily in the twentieth century. What makes the author's approach unique is its concern with the ways in which we may understand language and its relation to the world and ourselves as a question of limits, drawing upon contemporary continental and English-language views of language, philosophical and linguistic, from American pragmatists such as Peirce and Dewey, and from important contemporary sources such as feminist theory. The book bridges English-language and continental discussions of language partly by recognizing their contrasts but systematically developing an overarching view of language out of their interaction. The focus of the book on the limits of language leads from questions concerning a science of language, and how such a science may attempt to demarcate its limits, as in Saussure and Chomsky, to a view of grammar and structure, of rules, in language, again issues of whether there are permanent and far-reaching limits to language and to human linguistic capabilities. In addition, the limits of language mark the limits of humanity and our understanding of the world, as expressed in Wittgenstein and Heidegger, for example, so that exploration of language limits lead to the very limits of nature and experience, of individual and social life. These, as many contemporary writers argue, including Levinas, Lyotard, and Irigaray, are not ontological, but are fundamentally ethical and political. In other words, far-reaching explorations in the possibilities of another ethics and politics emerge from the examination of language
Plenishment in the earth : an ethic of inclusion by Stephen David Ross( Book )

The gift of truth : gathering the good by Stephen David Ross( Book )

5 editions published in 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 263 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume traces the history of the idea of truth as an ethical movement, exploring those developments in Western thought, from Plato and Aristotle through Kant and Hegel, when ethics was separated from science and philosophy. At the heart of the project is a reexamination of the good, found in Plato as that which makes being possible, which gives authority to knowledge and beckons to art, preserved in Levinas as infinite responsibility. The idea of the good is interpreted as nature's abundance, giving beauty and truth as gifts. It gives rise to an ethics of inclusion
Metaphysical aporia and philosophical heresy by Stephen David Ross( Book )

8 editions published in 1989 in English and Undetermined and held by 262 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The gift of touch : embodying the good by Stephen David Ross( Book )

7 editions published in 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 255 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Gift of Touch is the third volume in Ross's ongoing examination of the Western philosophical tradition in ethical terms, from the standpoint of the good, giving rise to endless responsibilities, resisting the neutrality of being and truth. The first volume, The Gift of Beauty, explored the link between art and the good in the light of Nietzsche's revaluation of all values and the second volume, The Gift of Truth, explored the ways in which truth and knowledge answer to a responsibility beyond themselves, given from the good. This third book traces Western ideas for corporeal bodies from Plato to contemporary feminist and poststructuralist writings, understanding corporeal things throughout nature as heterogeneous and expressive, interpreted in ethical terms, in relation to histories of domination and resistance. At the heart of the book is a reexamination of the good, found in Plato as that which gives authority to knowledge and truth. The good gives being in abundance, understood in terms of endless responsibility, giving rise to an ethics of inclusion."--Jacket

Locality and practical judgment : charity and sacrifice by Stephen David Ross( Book )

4 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 192 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work completes Ross's trilogy examining the inexhaustible complexity of the world and our relation to our surroundings. The philosophical viewpoint Ross examines in Locality and Practical Judgment is related to the American naturalist and pragmatist traditions and to the views of many twentieth-century European philosophers. It bears affinities with historicism and existentialism, insofar as both emphasize aspects of human finiteness. What is new is the systematic development of locality in application to practical experience. Ross applies locality not only to finite beings but also to their conditions and limitations - even the limits have limits; even the conditions are conditioned. The consequence of the doubly reflexive locality is inexhaustibility where inexhaustibility is equivalent to multiple locality
