Most widely held works by Daniel A Dombrowski
A brief, liberal, Catholic defense of abortion by Daniel A Dombrowski( Book )

9 editions published between 2000 and 2007 in English and held by 841 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Catholic church has always opposed abortion, but - contrary to popular belief - not always for the same reasons. This tightly argued, historically grounded study sets out to demonstrate that a "pro-choice" stance, now held by a significant minority of Catholics, is as fully justified by Catholic thought as an anti-abortion view, and may even be more compatible with Catholic tradition than the current opposition to abortion espoused by many Catholics and most Catholic leaders." "A Brief, Liberal, Catholic Defense of Abortion argues that the current Catholic anti-abortion stance is justified neither by modern embryology nor by ancient church teachings. Combining up-to-date information on fetal development with a thorough grasp of the works of the church's early thinkers, Daniel A. Dombrowski and Robert Deltete expose crucial contradictions between the early and the modern church's views of abortion."--Jacket

Rawls and religion : the case for political liberalism by Daniel A Dombrowski( Book )

10 editions published in 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 672 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Despite John Rawls's stature as the most influential political philosopher of the twentieth century, his thoughts on religion have not been sufficiently studied. While it is generally assumed that Rawls is more interested in topics other than the relationship between politics and religion, author Daniel A. Dombrowski argues in this book that this assumption is incorrect. He shows that Rawls is interested in the relationship between politics and religion and that the relationship between the two is at the core of the problem that liberalism has for centuries meant to solve. Rawls and Religion utilizes Rawls's thought to examine, among other controversial issues, abortion, the phenomenon of fundamentalism as a growth industry, and the perceived decline of secular culture."--Jacket
Hartshorne and the metaphysics of animal rights by Daniel A Dombrowski( Book )

5 editions published in 1988 in English and Undetermined and held by 475 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Contemporary athletics & ancient Greek ideals by Daniel A Dombrowski( Book )

10 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 367 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Despite their influence in our culture, sports inspire dramatically less philosophical consideration than such ostensibly weightier topics as religion, politics, or science. Arguing that athletic playfulness coexists with serious underpinnings, and that both demand more substantive attention, Daniel Dombrowski harnesses the insights of ancient Greek thinkers to illuminate contemporary athletics. Dombrowski contends that the ideas of Plato, Aristotle, and Plotinus shed important light on issues -- such as the pursuit of excellence, the concept of play, and the power of accepting physical limitations while also improving one's body -- that remain just as relevant in our sports-obsessed age as they were in ancient Greece. Bringing these concepts to bear on contemporary concerns, Dombrowski considers such questions as whether athletic competition can be a moral substitute for war, whether it necessarily constitutes war by other means, and whether it encourages fascist tendencies or ethical virtue. The first volume to philosophically explore twenty-first-century sport in the context of its ancient predecessor, Contemporary Athletics and Ancient Greek Ideals reveals that their relationship has great and previously untapped potential to inform our understanding of human nature."--Jacket
St. John of the Cross : an appreciation by Daniel A Dombrowski( Book )

6 editions published in 1992 in English and German and held by 363 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Christian pacifism by Daniel A Dombrowski( Book )

Rethinking the ontological argument : a neoclassical theistic response by Daniel A Dombrowski( Book )

14 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 310 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dombrowski builds Charles Hartshorne's crucial distinction between divine existence and divine actuality, which enables neoclassical defenders of the ontological argument to avoid the familiar criticism that the argument moves illegitimately from an abstract concept to concrete reality. His argument, thus, avoids the problems inherent in the traditional concept of God as static."--Jacket
Plato's philosophy of history by Daniel A Dombrowski( Book )

13 editions published between 1979 and 1982 in English and held by 306 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Babies and beasts : the argument from marginal cases by Daniel A Dombrowski( Book )

8 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 297 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Both its defenders and detractors have described the argument from marginal cases as the most important to date in defense of animal rights. Hotly debated among philosophers for some twenty years, the argument concludes that no morally relevant characteristic distinguishes human beings - including infants, the severely retarded, the comatose, and other "marginal cases" - from any other animals. Babies and Beasts presents the first book-length exploration of the broad range of views relating to the argument from marginal cases and sorts out and evaluates its various uses and abuses. Daniel Dombrowski analyzes the views of many who are prominent in the debate - Peter Singer, Thomas Regan, H. J. McCloskey, Jan Narveson, John Rawls, R. G. Frey, Peter Carruthers, Michael Leahy, Robert Nozick, and James Rachels are included - in a volume that will be essential to philosophers, animal rights activists, those who work in clinical settings, and others who must sometimes deal with "marginal cases."
Not even a sparrow falls : the philosophy of Stephen R.L. Clark by Daniel A Dombrowski( Book )

6 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 293 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Not Even A Sparrow Falls also tackles the difficult problem of determining Clark's stance among the many ideas he presents with varying degrees of seriousness and with various rhetorical goals in mind, as expressed in The Moral Status of Animals."--Jacket

Divine beauty : the aesthetics of Charles Hartshorne by Daniel A Dombrowski( Book )

7 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Filling an important gap in our understanding of Hartshorne, Divine Beauty also makes a persuasive case for the superiority of his neoclassical theism over classical theism."--Jacket
