Identity, character, and morality : essays in moral psychology by Owen J Flanagan( )

28 editions published between 1990 and 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many philosophers believe that normative ethics is in principle independent of psychology. By contrast, the authors of these essays explore the interconnections between psychology and moral theory. They investigate the psychological constraints on realizable ethical ideals and articulate the psychological assumptions behind traditional ethics, and they examine the ways in which, morality is affected by the basic architecture of the mind, core emotions, patterns of individual development, social psychology, and the limits on human capacities for rational deliberation

Explaining emotions by Amélie Rorty( Book )

17 editions published between 1980 and 2001 in English and held by 1,077 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The challenge of explaining the emotions has engaged the attention of the best minds in philosophy and science throughout history. Part of the fascination has been that the emotions resist classification. As adequate account therefore requires receptivity to knowledge from a variety of sources. The philosopher must inform himself of the relevant empirical investigation to arrive at a definition, and the scientist cannot afford to be naive about the assumptions built into his conceptual apparatus. The contributors to this volume have approached the problem of characterizing and classifying emotions from the perspectives of neurophysiology, psychology, and social psychology as well as that of philosophical psychology. They discuss the difficulties that arise in classifying the emotions, assessing their appropriateness and rationality, and determining their function in motivating moral action

Many Faces of Philosophy, The by Amélie Rorty( )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Philosophy is a dangerous profession, risking censorship, prison, even death. And no wonder: philosophers have questioned traditional pieties and threatened the established political order. Some claimed to know what was thought unknowable; others doubted what was believed to be certain. Some attacked religion in the name of science; others attacked science in the name of mystical poetry; some served tyrants; others were radical revolutionaries. This historically-based collection reveals their hopes and hesitations, their triumphs and struggles, their deepest doubts and convictions. These piece

The many faces of philosophy : reflections from Plato to Arendt( Recording )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Philosophy is a dangerous profession, risking censorship, prison, even death. And no wonder: philosophers have questioned traditional pieties and threatened the established political order. Some claimed to know what was thought unknowable; others doubted what was believed to be certain. Some attacked religion in the name of science; others attacked science in the name of mystical poetry; some served tyrants; others were radical revolutionaries. This historically based collection of philosophers' reflections - the letters, journals, prefaces that reveal their hopes and hesitations, their triumphs and struggles, their deepest doubts and convictions - allow us to witness philosophical thought-in-process. It sheds light on the many - and conflicting - aims of philosophy: to express skepticism or overcome it, to support theology or attack it, to develop an ethical system or reduce it to practical politics. As their audiences differed, philosophers experimented with distinctive rhetorical strategies, writing dialogues, meditations, treatises, aphorisms. Ranging from Plato to Hannah Arendt, with contributions from 44 philosophers (Augustine, Maimonides, AlGhazali, Descartes, Pascal, Leibniz, Voltaire, Rousseau, Hobbes, Hume, Kant, Nietzsche, Kierkegaard, Wittgenstein, among others) this ... collection documents philosophers' claim that they change as well as understand the world. In her introductory essay, "Witnessing Philosophers," [the author] locates philosophers' reflections in the larger context of the many facets of their other activities and commitments.-Dust jacket
