Identity, character, and morality essays in moral psychology ( )
20 editions published between 1990 and 1997 in English and held by 1,757 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
The many faces of philosophy reflections from Plato to Arendt ( )
14 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in English and held by 1,313 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 pieces discuss not only philosophy, but personal travails, struggles with daily life, personal relationships, as well as insights into philosophy itself and the nature of humanity. Together they reveal philosophy's true face: obsessive, curious, lonely and wise

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
