Human destiny : some problems for Catholic philosophy by Joseph Owens( Book )

7 editions published between 1985 and 2007 in English and held by 344 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What may I hope for?" Immanuel Kant's third question, both speculative and practical, speaks to the heart of the problem of human destiny. Such a question can hardly help but call for careful scrutiny by Catholic philosophers. It confronts Catholic philosophy as inevitably and as poignantly as it does any other comprehensive humanistic thinking. It is especially urgent at present as humanity seems to be destining itself to a suicidal end in a w orldwide nuclear holocaust. The author takes the notion of human destiny taught as a revealed truth by the Catholic Church and considers it thematically as an object of the philosophy of religion. He examines the philosophical problems that arise, first in Aristotle, then in Aquinas, and finally in the contemporary world

Aristotle's gradations of being in Metaphysics E-Z by Joseph Owens( Book )

6 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Aristotle's Gradations of Being was edited from the papers of the late Joseph Owens. Some fifty years after his book, The Doctrine of Being in the Aristotelian Metaphysics, Owens turned again to consider the central themes in Aristotle's conception of a science of being or "first philosophy." Reflecting on a half-century of scholarship, and drawing on his own publications in Greek and medieval philosophy, Owens sets forth in a step-by-step argument his own interpretation of Aristotle's account of substance, essence, and the gradations of being. Owens writes extensively of the different but complementary approaches of Aristotle and Thomas Aquinas." "He discusses the many facets of the Aristotelian notion of "form," including its role in a realistic epistemology." "This monograph, edited by Owens's colleague and former pupil, Lloyd P. Gerson, includes a complete bibliography of Owens's writings as well as works critical of Owens's readings of ancient and medieval philosophers. It will serve as an introduction to one of the most influential interpretations of the Aristotelian metaphysical tradition of the past century."--Jacket
