The Age of German idealism : Routledge history of philosophy, v.6 by Robert C Solomon( )

32 editions published between 1993 and 2008 in English and held by 1,821 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The turn of the nineteenth century marked a rich and exciting explosion of philosophical energy and talent. The enormity of the revolution set off in philosophy by Immanuel Kant was comparable, by Kant's own estimation, with the Copernican Revolution that ended the Middle Ages. The movement he set in motion, the fast-moving and often cantankerous dialectic of G̀erman Idealism', inspired some of the most creative philosophers in modern times: including G.W.F. Hegel and Arthur Schopenhauer as well as those who reacted against Kant - Marx and Kierkegaard, for example. This volume traces the emergence of German Idealism from Kant and his predecessors through the first half of the nineteenth century, ending with the irrationalism of Kierkegaard. It provides a broad, scholarly introduction to this period for students of philosophy and related disciplines, as well as some original interpretations of these authors. Each chapter is written by a distinguished scholar in the field. A glossary of technical terms together with a chronological table of philosophical, scientific and other important cultural events are provided

Both the initiated and readers unacquainted with the intricacies of German idealism will find this to be an accessible and exciting introduction to this great philosopher'smonumental

A short history of philosophy by Robert C Solomon( Book )

14 editions published between 1996 and 2010 in English and Korean and held by 1,406 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With a clear, witty style and a flair for making complex ideas accessible, the authors also convincingly demonstrate the relevance of philosophy to our times, emphasizing the legacy of the revolutions wrought by science, industry, colonialism, and sectarian warfare, and the philosophical responses to the traumas of the twentieth century (including two world wars and the Holocaust): existentialism, positivism, postmodernism, feminism, and multiculturalism among them. But Solomon and Higgins go beyond merely retelling the rich history of philosophy; the authors provide their own twists and interpretations of events, resulting in a story that reveals the continuing complexity and diversity of a richly textured and nuanced intellectual tradition. All who are "lovers of wisdom" will find much to reward them in this book

The joy of philosophy : thinking thin versus the passionate life by Robert C Solomon( )

33 editions published between 1999 and 2010 in English and Chinese and held by 1,392 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Joy of Philosophy is a return to some of the perennial questions of philosophy - questions about the meaning of life; about death and tragedy; about the respective roles of rationality and passion in the good life; about love, compassion, and revenge; about honesty, deception, and betrayal; and about who we are and how we think about who we are

28 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in English and held by 1,272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fear, anger, love, guilt, jealousy, compassion - they are all essential to our values, to living happily, healthily, and well.

Building trust in business, politics, relationships, and life by Robert C Solomon( )

25 editions published between 2001 and 2004 in English and Arabic and held by 1,218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Building Trust, Robert C. Solomon and Fernando Flores offer compelling answers to these questions. They argue that trust is not something that simply exists from the beginning, something we can assume or take for granted; that it is not a static quality or ʺsocial glue.ʺ Instead, they assert that trust is an emotional skill, an active and dynamic part of our lives that we build and sustain with our promises and commitments, our emotions and integrity. In looking closely at the effects of mistrust, such as insidious office politics that can sabotage a company's efficiency, Solomon and Flores demonstrate how to move from naïve trust that is easily shattered to an authentic trust that is sophisticated, reflective, and possible to renew. As the global economy makes us more and more reliant on ʺstrangers, ʺ and as our political and personal interactions become more complex, Building Trust offers invaluable insight into a vital aspect of human relationships
Spirituality for the skeptic : the thoughtful love of life by Robert C Solomon( )

23 editions published between 2002 and 2007 in English and held by 1,210 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Is it possible to be spiritual and yet not believe in the supernatural? Can a person be spiritual without belonging to a religious group or organization? In this book, philosopher Robert Solomon offers challenging answers to these questions as he explodes commonly held myths about what is means to be spiritual in today's pluralistic world. Based on Solomon's own struggles to reconcile philosophy with religion, Spirituality for the Skeptic offers a model of a vibrant, fulfilling spirituality that embraces the complexities of human existence and acknowledges the joys and tragedies of life. Solomon has forged an enlightened new path that synthesizes spirituality with emotions, intellect, science, and common sense. His new paradigm, "naturalized" spirituality, establishes as its cornerstone the "thoughtful love of life"--A passionate concern for the here-and-now, and not the by-and-by. Being spiritual doesn't mean being holed up as a recluse, spending hours in meditation and contemplation, Solomon argues. It demands involvement and emotional engagement with others in the struggle to find meaning in our lives. As such, this modern-day spirituality encompasses a passionate enthusiasm for the world, the transformation of self, cosmic trust and rationality, coming to terms with fate, and viewing life as a gift, all of which are explored in depth throughout this book. Spirituality for the Skeptic answers the need for a non-institutional, non-dogmatic spirituality that leads to personal fulfillment and satisfaction. By examining the ideas of great thinkers from Socrates and Nietzsche to Buddha to Kafka, Solomon arrives at a practical vision of spirituality that should appeal to many seekers looking to make sense of the human condition"--Publisher's description
The passions by Robert C Solomon( Book )

40 editions published between 1976 and 2013 in English and held by 1,155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Living with Nietzsche : what the great "immoralist" has to teach us by Robert C Solomon( Book )

24 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in English and held by 1,133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Living With Nietzsche, Solomon suggests that we read Nietzsche from a very different point of view, as a provocative writer who means to transform the way we view our lives. This means taking Nietzsche personally. Rather than focus on the "true" Nietzsche or trying to determine "what Nietzsche really meant" by his seemingly random and often contradictory pronouncements about "the Big Questions" of philosophy, Solomon reminds us that Nietzsche is not a philosopher of abstract ideas but rather of the dazzling personal insight, the provocative challenge, the incisive personal probe. He does not try to reveal the eternal verities but he does powerfully affect his readers, goading them to see themselves in new and different ways. It is Nietzsche's compelling invitation to self-scrutiny that fascinates us, engages us, and guides us to a "rich inner life." Ultimately, Solomon argues, Nietzsche is an example as well promulgator of "passionate inwardness," a life distinguished by its rich passions, exquisite taste, and a sense of personal elegance and excellence."--Jacket

Among the figures and topics addressed are Hegel, Schopenhauer, Kierkegaard, Marx, Nietzsche, Husserl and phenomenology, Heidegger, Sartre, Merleau-Ponty, critical theory, Habermas, Gadamer, Foucault, Derrida, postmodernism, and French feminism.
