The texture of being : essays in first philosophy by Kenneth L Schmitz( )

15 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in English and held by 1,728 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this volume, Schmitz brings his encyclopedic knowledge of the Western philosophical tradition to bear in a wide-ranging series of essays grouped under three headings: Being, Man, and God. He brings disparate philosophical traditions into conversation, such as classical Aristotelian-Thomistic metaphysics, the modern critical rationalism of Kant, the idealist synthesis of Hegel, the postmodern de-constructionism of Derrida and Foucault, and the personalist phenomenology of Scheler, Von Hildebrand, and Wojtyla."--Jacket

At the center of the human drama : the philosophical anthropology of Karol Wojtyła/Pope John Paul II by Kenneth L Schmitz( Book )

7 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Arguably one of the most influential men in the world today, Pope John Paul II presents a somewhat enigmatic figure because there are few works available that examine his philosophical thought. That gap is filled by this truly seminal and engaging study, in which Kenneth L. Schmitz examines the writings of Karol Wojtyla, from his early dramas to his later theological works." "Wojtyla's primary philosophical interest lies in the field of ethics, but Schmitz also points out that Wojtyla's interest is worked out in the context of an understanding of the nature and destiny of human beings. Relying upon many translations (some not available in English) of Wojtyla's work, Schmitz locates Wojtyla's philosophy of human nature in the broad tradition of Christian personalism. More importantly, perhaps, Schmitz shows that Wojtyla relied upon phenomenological methodology to explore the inner region of human experience while endorsing the general lines of traditional metaphysics as represented in the work of the great philosophers of the Middle Ages." "Finding that a coherent philosophical view is present throughout much of Wojtyla's work, Schmitz also discovers that Wojtyla's sensitivity to both modern and ancient thought and culture was already vividly present in his work as a young student in Cracow. As Pope John Paul II continues to make his mark in the history of the Roman Catholic Church and of the world, this book will prove invaluable to philosophers, theologians, and the educated reader who wishes learn more about his thought."--Jacket
St. Thomas Aquinas by Kenneth L Schmitz( )

6 editions published between 1990 and 2007 in English and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the late 13th century, this quiet reflective Dominican scholar concentrated his work on philosophical concerns that today would be considered to be partly theological. He combined the work of Aristotle with Christian, Jewish, Muslim, and pagan thought to reconcile reason and faith; he believed we can know that God exists, but not what God is like. Thomas's masterpiece, the Summa Theologiae (Summa Theologica), contains over 10,000 objections and replies to fundamental questions about God and the world. It enumerates virtues and vices, and it includes Thomas's famous "five ways" to prove God's existence, which are (1) the unmoved mover, (2) the uncaused cause, (3) the necessary being, (4) the perfect Goodness, and (5) the guiding intelligence. Thomas believed that God is absolutely simple, perfect, good, infinite, omnipresent, changeless, eternal, and unique
Person and psyche by Kenneth L Schmitz( Book )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Psychology and philosophy are distinct disciplines, yet close neighbors. Each discipline studies the human being as a single consciousness, and, for all of their differences, there is a remarkably intimate relation between their contributions to a truthful understanding of the human person." "Philosophy provides a foundation and horizon for the life of consciousness that engages in the very activities so precisely analyzed by psychology. Both the dimensions of philosophical reflection and psychic activity are essential aspects of the integrity and psychic health of the human person - a remarkable being who is unique in its self presence and the most interior of beings, yet also relational with others and the most open to all of being. These properties of relational uniqueness and open interiority shape our actions, which at their best are open to truth and the perfective power of being in general. At the same time the human person at his or her best is conscious of admiration of the panoply of being, and even further, open to adoration of being in its ultimate form - God." "In Person and Psyche, Kenneth Schmitz reflects upon the general foundation of each and every kind of being, with especial reference to human beings. He addresses the origins of our human nature and the value and promise that human freedom holds for the human person."--Jacket
