The mind and its depths by Richard Wollheim( Book )

17 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 654 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The mind as it is manifested in philosophy and art, in the moral life and psychoanalysis, has always been at the core of Richard Wollheim's celebrated work. This book brings together Wollheim's broad and abiding concerns to illuminate human thought at its furthest reaches of introspection and expression. Interweaving philosophy, psychoanalysis, and aesthetics, these essays reveal the critical connections between ideas and disciplines too often regarded as separate and distinct. At the same time, by focusing on actual experience, whether in art or ritual, sexuality or criminal behavior, they retrieve the ways and workings of the mind from the ponderous abstraction in which much contemporary thought is trapped. A central theme of The Mind and Its Depths is the importance of psychoanalysis to philosophical discussion. From Freud's writings Wollheim extracts the thesis of the "corporealization of thought," which he uses in a highly original way to reframe the mind/body question. His discussions of issues of moral, social, and political philosophy also emphasize the psychological dimensions of such problems. These, along with his essays on artistic expression and pictorial style, demonstrate the advantages of psychological sophistication in thinking about philosophical issues in general - and about the nature and impact of art in particular
On the emotions by Richard Wollheim( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 635 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Richard Wollheim recruits into service the insights of literature and of psychoanalysis, as well as of philosophy, in this thought-provoking account of the emotions. Starting from the premise that emotions form a distinct psychological category, Wollheim argues that they are - like beliefs and desiresdispositions or underlying forces in the mind that erupt from time to time into the stream of consciousness. However, to assimilate emotions to beliefs or to desires or to some combination of the two is quite wrong. Emotions are attitudes or orientations to the world, says the author, and in this regard they are naturally associated with the imagination."--Jacket
Philosophical essays on Freud by Richard Wollheim( Book )

20 editions published between 1982 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 591 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Philosophers are increasingly coming to recognize the importance of Freudian theory for the understanding of the mind. The picture Freud presents of the mind's growth and organization holds implications not just for such perennial questions as the relation of mind and body, the nature of memory and personal identity, the interplay of cognitive and affective processes in reasoning and acting, but also for the very way in which these questions are conceived and an interpretation of the mind is sought. This volume of essays, by some of today's leading philosophers, explores all these topics, as well as the methods, results and status of the theory itself, while two 'classical' discussions by Wittgenstein and Sartre are also included. A number of the contributions - those by Donald Davidson, W. D. Hart, Jim Hopkins, Adam Morton, David Pears and Richard Wollheim - have not been published before, and a very useful bibliography is provided. It is an anthology that will be vital to anyone interested in Freudian theory and, more generally, in philosophical psychology

Hume on religion by David Hume( Book )

14 editions published between 1963 and 1971 in English and Undetermined and held by 351 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

David Hume is the greatest of British philosophers. His Treatise of Human Nature and his Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding are familiar landmarks in the history of thought. His writings on religion have, on the other hand, fallen into undeserved neglect. Richard Wollheim, who has here collected and introduced them, argues their importance both as a contribution to the literature and thought of the eighteenth century and as offering a unique view of the range, the brilliance and the fertility of Hume's intellect. Penetrating, witty, elegant and daring they epitomize the quality of the greatest skeptical intelligence in the history of British philosophy
Richard Wollheim on the art of painting : art as representation and expression by Richard Wollheim( Book )

3 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 348 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Richard Wollheim is one of the dominant figures in the philosophy of art, whose work has shown not only how paintings create their effects but why they remain important to us. His influential writings have focused on two core, interrelated questions: How do paintings depict? and how do they express feelings? In this collection of new essays a distinguished group of thinkers in the fields of art history and philosophical aesthetics offers a critical assessment of Wollheim's theory of art. Among the themes under discussion are Wollheim's explanation of pictorial representation in terms of seeing-in, his views of artistic expression as a type of complex projection, and his notion of the internal spectator. In the final essay Wollheim himself responds to the contributors. This book will be eagerly sought out by all serious students of the theory of art, whether in departments of philosophy or art history

Germs : a memoir of childhood by Richard Wollheim( Book )

10 editions published between 2004 and 2009 in English and Spanish and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Richard Wollheim grew up lonely and sad in London's wealthy suburbs during the 1920s and 1930s, yet his was a childhood more interesting than most. He had an impresario father and a "Gaiety Girl" mother; together they attracted important guests (Diaghilev, Kurt Weill, Serge Lifar) to the grand houses and hotels that punctuated the landscape of Wollheim's early years. Germs is his account of that time, of the years he spent adoring his charming but distant father; of his regret for loathing his beautiful, mindless mother. Told in prose that with hypnotic ease moves from deadpan comedy to poignant loneliness, Germs is already a classic work of memoir
