An introduction to Western philosophy : ideas and argument from Plato to Sartre by Antony Flew( Book )

53 editions published between 1971 and 1995 in English and held by 1,586 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is an introduction to philosophy which, as is explained more fully in Chapter 1, synthesizes two methods: that of beginning with readings from the classics; and that of the ordinary textbook, written as such. One fundamental aim has been to ensure continuous readability; while at the same time providing both an Index of Notions and an Index of Names, intended to facilitate a different sort of reading for later revision and reinforcement. It is in accordance with this fundamental aim that the readings from the classics are worked into a single continuous book, and not segregated into a separate supplementary part

Crime or disease? by Antony Flew( Book )

26 editions published between 1973 and 2018 in English and held by 820 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Crime, Punishment and Disease, Antony Flew makes clear both the meaning and the implications carried by the application of the expression "mental disease." He aims to discourage its use in conditions that provide the victims of such diseases with an excuse for failing to perform what would have been their imperative duties had they enjoyed good mental health. Flew attacks the gross over-extensions of the notion of mental disease on both sides of the Atlantic. He defends human dignity and responsibility against the suggestion that we are all, or most of us, "sick, sick, sick." In particular, he challenges the paternalist pretensions of people who claim a right to control and manipulate others because they are allegedly sick, and consequently not responsible for what they do." "In a typical ordinary disease, Flew notes, it is the patient who complains of the disease rather than someone else who complains about the patient. But those who claim that some crime or all crime is symptomatic of mental disease and those who identify disorders such as attention/deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) as conditions requiring psychiatric attention are taking the disfavored behavior rather than the distress of their patients as the warrant for supposedly medical interventions. They should instead first consider how what they propose to call mental disease does, and does not, resemble syphilis, measles, and other communicable diseases." "Flew sees his work as complementary to Thomas Szasz's. He applies a philosophical perspective to problems Szasz discusses as a psychiatrist. Crime, Punishment and Disease will be of particular interest to students of philosophy, social welfare, education, and new developments in psychiatry, and will be of direct relevance to criminologists."--Jacket

How to think straight : an introduction to critical reasoning by Antony Flew( Book )

9 editions published between 1998 and 2014 in English and Turkish and held by 697 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Practical reasoning and clear thinking are essential for everyone if we are to make sense of the information we receive each day. Being able to quickly know the difference between valid and invalid arguments, the contradictory versus the contrary, vagueness and ambiguity, contradiction and self-contradiction, the truthful and the fallacious, separates clear thinkers from the crowd. How to Think Straight lays the foundation for critical reasoning by showing many ways in which our thinking goes awry. Celebrated philosopher Antony Flew entertainingly instructs on the many and varied faults that occur in argument, the power of reason, how to challenge assertions and find evidence, and how not to be persuaded by half-truths. Flew also examines poor reasoning, and why we should be concerned with finding the truth. Lucid, terse, and sensible, with study questions and exercises to help along the way, this enlightening second edition will help you develop the skills necessary to argue and reason effectively by following a few simple, easy-to-remember directions
