Philosophy of democratic government by Yves René Marie Simon( Book )

42 editions published between 1941 and 1993 in English and Japanese and held by 1,104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This complete treatise of political philosophy demonstrates the author's belief that, even in the best conceivable circumstances, government is needed to determine direction toward the common good and to provide the means for united action. "It is Professor Simon's achievement to have clarified fundamental issues of political philosophy, and to have related the resultant concepts to the contemporary scene in such a way as to clarify also the nature of the issues that confront us today." [Thomas I. Cook, Political Science Quarterly.]

A critique of moral knowledge by Yves René Marie Simon( Book )

15 editions published between 1934 and 2002 in French and English and held by 325 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the first English-language edition of Yves R. Simon's first book, Critique de la connaissance morale, which was originally published in 1934. Not only does this work clarify the first stages of Simon's intellectual career, it is also a fundamental contribution to moral philosophy." "A Critique of Moral Knowledge addresses a number of issues in a fundamental set of problems: How does moral knowledge differ from other practicial knowledge? What is the primary analog of moral knowledge? What is the controlled range of meanings of moral knowledge? What is the relationship between the moral sense (Simon's term for synderesis), moral philosophy, and the cognition embedded in action? Is politics part of moral philosophy or a neutral technique?" "This translation will be of value to all who are interested in tracking the work of this influential thinker, and will be an important contribution to the twentieth-century conversation on philosophy, politics, religion, and ethics."--Jacket

Foresight and knowledge by Yves René Marie Simon( Book )

8 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For Yves R. Simon, philosophy has an affinity to science, not in the sense that philosophy is a mere metascience, a commentary on the sciences, but rather because it shares the same aim as science: the search for explanation. The philosophy Simon espouses is philosophical realism which, following Jacques Maritain, he prefers to call critical realism. Against the prejudice that only some version of philosophical idealism, be it critical or absolute, is capable of understanding positive science. Simon, in Foresight and Knowledge, develops a philosophy of science from a realistic perspective. Philosophy of science or the critique of science, as it was known in France, is, according to Simon, metaphysics in the exercise of its critical function. Simon selects as the central focus of the treatise the problem of determinism, causality, and chance. Simon shows that the concept "determinism" must be understood in different conceptual systems, such as a philosophy of nature and physics; in the latter, determinism is conceived as a possibility of certain and exact prediction
