Think : philosophy for everyone by Royal institute of philosophy (G.B.)( )

in English and held by 924 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Think is a publication of the Royal Institute of Philosophy. It is edited by Stephen Law and published three times each year. The central aim of Think is to provide to a very wide audience - including schools, colleges and the general public - highly accessible and engaging writing by philosophers pre-eminent in their fields. Think also aims to undermine the popular impression that philosophy is pointless and wholly detached from everyday life. Its contributors sometimes expose some of the bad philosophy which currently passes as accepted wisdom in certain circles (e.g. religious, scientific, anthropological, etc). Perhaps most importantly, Think gives contemporary philosophers the chance to help nurture and encourage philosophy's next generation

Philosophy as therapeia( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

`Empty are the words of that philosopher who offers therapy for no human suffering. For just as there is no use in medical expertise if it does not give therapy for bodily diseases, so too there is no use in philosophy if it does not expel the suffering of the soul.' The philosopher Epicurus gave famous voice to a conception of philosophy as a cure or remedy for the maladies of the human soul. What has not until now received attention is just how prominent an idea this has been across a whole spectrum of philosophical tradition. A medical analogy features strongly in Buddhist conceptions of philosophical practice, and the idea that philosophy should be therapeutic, indeed that this is philosophy's first function, was indeed widely spread in several other, non-Buddhist, Indian schools. In the West, too, this conception of philosophy has displayed a great resilience, persisting long past the Hellenistic age. It can and will be argued that medieval scholasticism, a mode of philosophizing now so often and often so naively criticised, should be understood as therapeutic in intent. If that is right it is important, because it allows us to see continuities between ancient, medieval and early modern thought where too often discontinuities alone are emphasised. For Spinoza too thought of philosophy as therapeutic, and after him Nietzsche and James and Wittgenstein. So the conception of philosophy as therapeia allows for, and even necessitates, a new reading of the history of
Philosophy, its history and historiography by Alan Holland( Book )

3 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Royal Institute of Philosophy has been sponsoring conferences in alternate years since 1969. These have from the start been intended to be of interest to persons who are not philosophers by profession. They have mainly focused on interdisciplinary areas such as the philosophies of psychology, education and the social sciences. The volumes arising from these conferences have included discussions between philosophers and distinguished practitioners of other disciplines relevant to the chosen topic. Beginning with the 1979 conference on 'Law, Morality and Rights' and the 1981 conference on 'Space, Time and Causality' these volumes are now constituted as a series. It is h
