Interpreting across boundaries : new essays in comparative philosophy by Gerald James Larson( Book )

20 editions published between 1988 and 2014 in English and Italian and held by 1,060 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is a "state-of-the-art" assessment of comparative philosophy written by some of the leading practitioners of the field. While its primary focus is on gaining methodological clarity regarding the comparative enterprise of "interpreting across boundaries," the book also contains new substantive essays on Indian, Chinese, Japanese, and European thought. The contributors are Roger T. Ames, William Theodore de Bary, Wing-tsit Chan, A.S. Cua, Eliot Deutsch, Charles Hartshorne, Daya Krishna, Gerald James Larson, Sengaku Mayeda, Hajime Nakamura, Raimundo Panikkar, Karl H. Potter, Henry Rosemont, Jr., Ben-Ami Scharfstein, Ninian Smart, Fritz Staal, and Frederick J. Streng.Comparative or cross-cultural philosophy can be seen as a relative newcomer to the field of philosophy. It has its antecedents in the emergence of comparative studies in nineteenth-century European intellectual history, as well as in the sequence of East-West Philosophers' Conferences at the University of Hawaii, which began in 1939. This book will prove to be of great significance in helping to define a field that is only now becoming fully self-conscious, methodologically and substantively, about its role and function in the larger enterprises of philosophy and comparative studies.

Persons and valuable worlds : a global philosophy by Eliot Deutsch( Book )

7 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Convinced that the crisis in contemporary Western philosophy rises from the sundering of moral or value considerations from notions of rationality and the nature of reality, Deutsch (philosophy, U. of Hawai'i) advocates a kind of pluralistic but not relativistic philosophical anthropology, ontology, ethics, and epistemology in a cross-cultural context.

Creative being : the crafting of person and world by Eliot Deutsch( Book )

7 editions published in 1992 in English and Undetermined and held by 201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A person, I want to argue, is not a given but an achievement." So opens Eliot Deutsch's provocative study, a work that sets forth new possibilities for understanding the nature of creativity and the means by which human beings fashion themselves and their worlds. Professor Deutsch develops an innovative way of moving beyond the limitations of traditional rationalism, empiricism, and analytical philosophy of mind in order to frame a new conception of what it means to be a person. Drawing on Western traditions - including phenomenology, existentialism, pragmatism, and Gestalt psychology - as well as Eastern traditions - Hinduism, Buddhism, and Chinese philosophy - Deutsch pursues three main areas of inquiry. First, personhood itself is investigated through discussions of self-deception, the emotions, the body, and the nature of consciousness. Second, the fundamental ontological structures of being - space, time, causality - are explored. The relationships between language and reality and consciousness and the world are also analyzed. Third, Deutsch examines persons as moral, social, and political beings, revealing the ways in which a new conception of personhood discloses opportunities to realize the ideals of community participation. This volume refines, contextualizes, and updates the argument presented in Deutsch's Personhood, Creativity, and Freedom (1982). There are seven entirely new chapters as well as other additions, making this a significant contribution to the new discussion of human identity and action currently emerging in philosophical circles. Deutsch's lucid and elegant style will speak as well to a more general readership interested in humanistic issues
