Contemporary European philosophy by Joseph M Bochenski( Book )

162 editions published between 1947 and 2002 in 8 languages and held by 1,958 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An introductory survey intended for the general reader, with no specialist training in philosophy, who seeks a grounding in this often bewildering subject. Organized for reference use, this volume will prove handy for anyone who has ever needed a compact, authoritative guide to such questions as just what existentialism is, or who Edmund Husserl was, or what the main points of Thomism are. The focus of the work is on French, German and English philosophers, although Croce, James and Dewey are not overlooked. "Contemporary" is interpreted to mean philosophers who published important works after World War I, but some men whose influence remains powerful are included even though their work appeared earlier
A history of formal logic by Joseph M Bocheński( Book )

105 editions published between 1956 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 1,578 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Joseph Maria Bochenskis Hauptwerk wurde zuerst 1956 veröffentlicht. Es enthält, nach einer systematischen Einleitung, in seinen vier Hauptabschnitten die Problemgeschichte der griechischen, scholastischen, mathematischen und indischen Logik, die anhand von Originaldokumenten dargestellt wird. Das Ergebnis ist ein Zweifaches: Einerseits ergibt sich die Einsicht, dass die Geschichte der Logik nicht nur durch frühere Stadien unserer heutigen Wissenschaft ausgemacht wird, sondern dass in ihr sich mehrere hochstehende, sich autonom entwickelnde und in Wesentlichem verschiedene Gestalten der formalen Logik unterscheiden lassen. Andererseits wird deutlich, dass die Problematik im Grunde durch diese ganze Geschichte weitgehend dieselbe ist. Somit ist das Werk mit seinen mehreren hundert Texten und ihrer Erläuterung auch ein gut lesbares Lehrbuch der Logik, das jedem Lernenden ermöglicht, die Grundlehren, Probleme und Theorien dieser Wissenschaft aus ihrem Werdegang und ihren verschiedenen Ausbildungen zu begreifen. Aus den Rezensionen früherer Auflagen:<<Ein Meister der Präzision in der Darstellung komplizierter Zusammenhänge.<< Tagesspiegel, Berlin<<Dies Buch ist die umfassendste moderne Darstellung der Geschichte der Logik, die wir besitzen.<< Bibliographie de la Philosophie, Paris .

The methods of contemporary thought by Joseph M Bochenski( Book )

166 editions published between 1954 and 1993 in 6 languages and held by 1,529 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Professor Bochenski, as he himself points out in the prologue, is a logician; he is best known in England and the United States for his work in the history of logic, and more recently in Soviet and East European philosophy. But he has taught philosophy for many years - in Rome, in Switzerland, and on a number of visits to the United States - and in this book provides an elementary introduction to contemporary work in the field. As a means to this end he has chosen to deal with four alternative methods employed by philosophers in the twentieth century. Philosophical methodology has not attracted much attention, in English speaking circles, as a distinct branch of the discipline of philosophy; the term "methodologist", if used at all, would ordinarily be taken to refer to somebody concerned with scientific rather than philosophical method. When, therefore, Professor Bochenski refers, as he frequently does, to "contemporary methodologists", meaning people who debate the re spective merits of phenomenology and mathematical logic as ways of approaching the world, the phrase has an odd ring. But philosophical methodology really makes a great deal more sense than scientific method ology. In science methodology is almost superfluous; given all the avail able information and a reasonably clear idea of what is wanted, there is usually not much ambiguity as to the means of getting it, or not much that could be resolved by mere argument

The logic of religion by Jude P Dougherty( Book )

45 editions published between 1965 and 1981 in 5 languages and held by 829 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The logic of religion presents an examination of the nature of religion from a philosophical perspective. In successive chapters classical, medieval, and modern authors are canvassed for their views. Even among those who find no evidence for the existence of God, we encounter discussions of the nature of religion and its function in society. This study begins in antiquity with Socrates, Plato, Cicero, and Seneca. It then moves through Augustine to the Middle Ages as represented by Averroes and Aquinas. By so proceeding, the author gives the reader insight into the nature and logic of religion as conceived before and after the advent of Christianity. Subsequent investigation leads to a consideration of the work of David Hume, Immanuel Kant, and G.W.F. Hegel, in whose philosophies we find not only an account of the logic of religion but an appreciation of its implications in the practical order, and of Sigmund Freud's negative assessment of religion in The future of an illusion. Although the focus of this study is primarily Western religion, attention is also paid to selected oriental modes of thought, some properly called "religion" in the Western sense, others more akin to philosophy than religion
Soviet Russian dialectical materialism (Diamat) by Joseph M Bochenski( Book )

18 editions published in 1963 in English and held by 644 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book offers a critical outline of the sources of the history, of the spirit and of the doctrines of present-day Soviet Russian Dialectical Materialism ('Diamat'), i.e. of the philosophical foundations of Marxism Leninism. It is scarcely necessary to stress the usefulness of a short outline of this kind, as Russian sources are not easily accessible in the West and as it is of considerable interest to know the doctrines which make up the faith of the Communists* in all countries. The material for this book was first made public in a series of lectures at the University of Fribourg (Switzerland), first in French in the summer term of 1949, later in English at the Summer School in the same year. The French text, slightly expanded, was translated into German by Miss M. Hoerkens, Dipl. rer. pol. Various imperfections in the wording of the text and in the bibliography can be explained by the process of formation of this book. The author hopes that such imperfections will not prove disturbing

A precis of mathematical logic by Joseph M Bochenski( Book )

19 editions published between 1959 and 2011 in English and German and held by 578 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The work of which this is an English translation appeared originally in French as Precis de logique mathematique. In 1954 Dr. Albert Menne brought out a revised and somewhat enlarged edition in German (Grund riss der Logistik, F. Schoningh, Paderborn). In making my translation I have used both editions. For the most part I have followed the original French edition, since I thought there was some advantage in keeping the work as short as possible. However, I have included the more extensive historical notes of Dr. Menne, his bibliography, and the two sections on modal logic and the syntactical categories ({sect} 25 and 27), which were not in the original. I have endeavored to correct the typo graphical errors that appeared in the original editions and have made a few additions to the bibliography. In making the translation I have profited more than words can tell from the ever-generous help of Fr. Bochenski while he was teaching at the University of Notre Dame during 1955-56.

The dogmatic principles of Soviet philosophy (as of 1958); synposis of the Osnovy marksistskoj filosofii by Institut filosofii (Akademii︠a︡ nauk SSSR)( Book )

33 editions published between 1963 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 477 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The present volume of "Sovietica" offers a short synopsis of the newest version of Soviet philosophic dogma. It is a presentation of the content of the Osnovy marksistskoj filosofii which was authorized for publi cation Aug. 7, 1958, and appeared before the end of October of that year in a printing of 250 000 copies. The book was published by the Institute of Philosophy of the Academy of Sciences of the Su. The responsible editors were P. Pavelkin and G. Kurbatova and the text was prepared by eleven eminent Soviet philosophers (Y.F. Berestnev, M.A. Dynnik, P.N. Fedoseev, Ju. P. Francev, G.E. Glezerman, M.D. Kammari, F.V. Konstantinov, P.V. Kopnin, I.V. Kuznecov, M.M. Rozental', A.F. Siskin) under the direction of Konstantinov. As stated in the preface (p. 5) of the book, it was read in manuscript form by numerous scholars and professors of philosophy and then thoroughly discussed in three separate sessions (in the Academy of Sciences, and the Universities of Leningrad and Moscow). This work presents a reliable account of Soviet dogma as of 1958, i.e

44 editions published between 1949 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die ersten drei Hefte dieser Reihe enthalten die Titel der Aufsatze, die in den sowjetischen philosophischen Fachzeitschriften (VFund FN) zwischen 1947 und 1960 erschienen sind, sowie die Titel von Blichern die in diesen Zeitschriften angeflihrt oder in der Bibliothek des Freiburger Osteuropa Instituts vorhanden waren. Ursprlinglich flir den Gebrauch der Mitglieder des Instituts vorgesehen, wurden sie in der Hoffnung veroffentlicht andern Forschern auf diesem Gebiet nlitzlich zu sein, vor aHem da die sowjetischen Beitrage zur eigenen philoso phischen Bibliographie sehr fragmentarisch und schwer erhaltlich sind. Diese Hoffnung scheint berechtigt, da die ersten zwei Hefte bereits neu aufgelegt werden mussten. Es wurde daher beschlossen, die Basis der Bibliographie flir die genannte Periode zu erweitern, und zwar durch die Berlicksichtigung von Aufsatzen in anderen Zeitschriften, von Dissertationen und von Blichern, die durch die oben genannten QueHen nicht erfaBbar waren. Das vorliegende vierte Heft enthlilt die Ergebnisse dieser Erweiterung. Die gesamte Reihe enthlilt 7940 Titel, womit schlitzungsweise 85 Prozent der sowjetischen philosophischen Literatur zwischen 1947 und 1960 und - was noch wichtiger scheint - der flir die Entwicklung dieser Philo sophie entscheidende Teil derselben erfaBt ist.
