Phenomenology of spirit by Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel( Book )

28 editions published between 1977 and 2013 in English and held by 1,333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hegel's Phenomenology was written, so the story goes, on the eve of Napoleon's destruction of the Holy Roman Empire and at the beginning of the German 'Wars of Liberation.' The book itself is no less dramatic and revolutionary. It is Hegel's grandest experiment, changing our vision of the world and the very nature of the philosophical enterprise. Hegel puts into harmony ethics and autonomy, ancient philosophy and tragedy, Byronic Romanticism, German poetry, the Enlightenment, the French Revolution, the concept of virtue, the history of religion (including an ambiguous defense and critique of modern Christianity), the beginnings of a new philosophy of science and Kant's moral philosophy. All are tied together with the dazzling if sometimes bewildering leaps in logic that have come to be known as 'Hegel's dialectic.'
The discipline of the cave: Gifford lectures given at the University of St. Andrews, December 1964--February 1965 by J. N Findlay( Book )

30 editions published between 1960 and 2013 in English and held by 819 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1966, The Discipline of the Cave is the first series of a course of Gifford lectures on philosophical issues. J N Findlay's lectures use the image of the Cave to show how familiarity is full of restrictions, and involves puzzles and discrepancies unable to be resolved or removed. Such philosophical perplexities may be a result of the misunderstanding and abuse of ordinary ways of thinking and speaking. They may also be a way of 'drawing us towards being', providing proof of the absurdity of ordinary thought, speech and experience unless modified and added to in

The transcendence of the cave: (sequel to The discipline of the cave) by J. N Findlay( Book )

37 editions published between 1966 and 2014 in English and Spanish and held by 706 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1967, The Transcendence of the Cave isthe second in a series of Gifford Lectures on philosophical issues, and continues the themes of the first series entitled The Discipline of the Cave. In the opening chapters, J N Findlay sketches an ontology, an axiology and a theology which are ' phenomenological' in the sense of Husserl, as they attempt to show that a ' firmament' of logical and other values emerges out of the contingencies of first order liking and interest. The synthesis of these values in an object having many
Plato: the written and unwritten doctrines by J. N Findlay( Book )

24 editions published between 1974 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 702 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

J.N. Findlay, distinguished scholar and acknowledged expert on Plato, argues persuasively for a new interpretation of the Platonic writings. He believes that Plato's Unwritten Doctrines were present in the background of all the great philosopher's mature written work. With the use of Aristotelian and other writings on these reported doctrines he demonstrates that they admit of an intelligible elucidation and they direct indispensable light upon the full meaning of the written Dialogues. The author emphasizes the valuable use of Platonic notions and methods by the Neoplatonists and the Schoolmen

Kant and the transcendental object : a hermeneutic study by J. N Findlay( Book )

17 editions published between 1981 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 665 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a comprehensive examination of Kant's metaphysic of transcendental idealism, which is everywhere presupposed by his critical theory of knowledge, his theory of the moral and the aesthetic judgement, and his rational approach to religion. It shows that this metaphysic is profoundly coherent, despite frequent inconsistencies of expression, and that it throws an indispensable light on his critical enquiries
