Boston Confucianism : portable tradition in the late-modern world by Robert C Neville( Book )

4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Is it possible to be a Confucian without being East Asian, as so many philosophers have been Platonists without being Greek? Strangely enough, many scholars would answer in the negative, citing the inextricable connection between Confucianism and East Asia culture. Boston Confucianism argues to the contrary, maintaining that Confucianism can be important to the contemporary global conversation of philosophy and should not be confined to an East Asian context
Normative cultures by Robert C Neville( Book )

5 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The great civilizations of the world are very different from one another, indeed more strangely different the closer they come in economic, social, and cultural interaction. Yet each claims to be a normative way of being human. At the very minimum human achievement requires competence in the conventions of one's own civilization. To be human is to participate in a conventional culture, and the normatively human conventional cultures are different. Here is the "clash of civilizations": Without commitment to some conventions of civilized humanity, no one can be human; yet the conventions are different, perhaps even opposed
Ritual and deference : extending Chinese philosophy in a comparative context by Robert C Neville( Book )

13 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ritual and Deference develops Robert Cummings Neville's thesis that contemporary philosophy has much to gain by shaping itself through important themes of the Chinese philosophical traditions, especially the themes of ritual and deference. Neville here offers a broad and detailed interpretation of the relevance of Confucianism and Daoism to contemporary issues. The discussion includes analyses of classical Confucian and Daoist texts, especially those of Xunzi and Laozi, and of the current scene of English-speaking philosophy advancing Chinese themes. Neville stresses the importance of deferring to the integrity of cultures while still submitting them to normative analysis and criticism."--Jacket
On the scope and truth of theology : theology as symbolic engagement by Robert C Neville( Book )

11 editions published in 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first volume of Robert Cumming Neville's magnum opus, Theology as Symbolic Engagement . Neville is the premier American systematic theologian of our time. His work is profoundly influenced by Paul Tillich, Friedrich Schleiermacher, and the American pragmatists John Dewey and Charles Sanders Pierce. From Tillich he takes the notion of religion, art, and morality as symbol, and the notion that religion is the substance of culture and culture the form of religion. Thus, theology is symbolic engagement with cultural forms, and Neville explores the ways that such engagement occurs among
