French philosophy in the twentieth century by Gary Gutting( Book )

19 editions published between 2001 and 2005 in English and Chinese and held by 838 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publisher's description: In this book Gary Gutting tells, clearly and comprehensively, the story of French philosophy from 1890 to 1990. He examines the often neglected background of spiritualism, university idealism, and early philosophy of science, and also discusses the privileged role of philosophy in the French education system. Taking account of this background, together with the influences of avant-garde literature and German philosophy, he develops a rich account of existential phenomenology, which he argues is the central achievement of French thought during the century, and of subsequent structuralist and poststructuralist developments. His discussion includes chapters on Bergson, Sartre, Beauvoir, Merleau-Ponty, Foucault, and Derrida, with sections on other major thinkers including Lyotard, Deleuze, Irigaray, Levinas, and Ricoeur. He offers challenging analyses of the often misunderstood relationship between existential phenomenology and structuralism and of the emergence of poststructuralism. Finally, he sketches the major current trends of French philosophy
Foucault : a very short introduction by Gary Gutting( Book )

15 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 694 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thinking the impossible : French philosophy since 1960 by Gary Gutting( Book )

15 editions published between 2011 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 515 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

His initial focus is on the three most important philosophers who came to prominence in the 1960s: Michel Foucault, Gilles Deleuze, and Jacques Derrida. He sets out the educational and cultural context of their work, as a basis for a detailed treatment of how they formulated and began to carry out their philosophical projects in the 1960s and 1970s. He gives a fresh assessment of their responses to the key influences of Hegel and Heidegger, and the fraught relationship of the new generation to their father-figure Sartre. He concludes that Foucault, Derrida, and Deleuze can all be seen as developing their fundamental philosophical stances out of distinctive readings of Nietzsche. The second part of the book considers topics and philosophers that became prominent in the 1980s and 1990s, such as the revival of ethics in Levinas, Derrida, and Foucault, the return to phenomenology and its use to revive religious experience as a philosophical topic, and Alain Badiou's new ontology of the event. Finally Gutting brings to the fore the meta-philosophical theme of the book, that French philosophy since the 1960s has been primarily concerned with thinking the impossible."--Pub. desc
Religious belief and religious skepticism by Gary Gutting( Book )

5 editions published between 1982 and 1983 in English and held by 499 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What philosophers know : case studies in recent analytic philosophy by Gary Gutting( Book )

12 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 469 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Philosophy has never delivered on its promise to settle the great moral and religious questions of human existence, and even most philosophers conclude that it does not offer an established body of disciplinary knowledge. Gary Gutting challenges this view by examining detailed case studies of recent achievements by analytic philosophers such as Quine, Kripke, Gettier, Lewis, Chalmers, Plantinga, Kuhn, Rawls, and Rorty. He shows that these philosophers have indeed produced a substantial body of disciplinary knowledge, but he challenges many common views about what philosophers have achieved. Topics discussed include the role of argument in philosophy, naturalist and experimentalist challenges to the status of philosophical intuitions, the importance of pre-philosophical convictions, Rawls' method of reflective equilibrium, and Rorty's challenge to the idea of objective philosophical truth. The book offers a lucid survey of recent analytic work and presents a new understanding of philosophy as an important source of knowledge

15 editions published between 2004 and 2014 in English and held by 249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Continental Philosophy of Science provides an expert guide to the major twentieth-century French and German philosophical thinking on science. The book refutes the view that twentieth-century continental thought is anti-scientific, and shows how continental thinkers offer distinctive perspectives that both complement and fruitfully interact with analytic philosophy of science."--Jacket

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Continental Philosophy of Science provides an expert guide to the major twentieth-century French and German philosophical thinking on science. The book refutes the view that twentieth-century continental thought is anti-scientific, and shows how continental thinkers offer distinctive perspectives that both complement and fruitfully interact with analytic philosophy of science. Collected here are primary texts by Husserl, Heidegger, Foucault, Deleuze, Irigaray, and Habermas, along with previously untranslated essays by Bergson, Bachelard, and Canguilhem, and new translations of work by Hegel and Cassirer. Each primary text is paired with commentary by leading contemporary scholars, including Terry Pinkard, Jean Gayon, Michael Friedman, Richard Tieszen, Joseph Rouse, Mary Tiles, Hans-Jorg Rheinberger, Linda Alcoff, Todd May, Penelope Deutscher, and Axel Honneth. Gary Gutting's introduction, moreover, presents a unified interpretative survey of continental work on philosophy of science. Rheinberger, Linda Alcoff, Todd May, Penelope Deutscher, and Axel Honneth
Rethinking intuition : the psychology of intuition and its role in philosophical inquiry by Michael R DePaul( )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ancients and moderns alike have constructed arguments and assessed theories on the basis of common sense and intuitive judgments. Yet, despite the important role intuitions play in philosophy, there has been little reflection on fundamental questions concerning the sort of data intuitions provide, how they are supposed to lead us to the truth, and why we should treat them as important. In addition, recent psychological research seems to pose serious challenges to traditional intuition-driven philosophical inquiry. Rethinking Intuition brings together a distinguished group of philosophers and p
