The idea of creativity by Michael Krausz( )

16 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in English and held by 1,580 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Seventeen philosophers, scientists and artists consider questions about the intriguing idea of creativity: Is creativity essentially mysterious? Is creativity essentially inspirational or rationalistic? What role does skill play in creativity? What are the criteria of creativity? Should we assign logical priority to creative persons, creative processes, or creative products? How do forms of creativity relate to different domains of human activity? How does creativity relate to self-transformation? How does our knowledge of the circumstances of creativity effect our appreciation of its products? Can a recipient of a creative work also be a creator of it?

Oneness and the displacement of self : dialogues on self-realization by Michael Krausz( )

6 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 967 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents a fictional dialogue among four former college friends about Oneness and self-realization. News of the sudden death of a relative occasions their discussion. One friend, a devotee of the Advaita or non-duality school of Hindu philosophy, seeks to short-circuit the pain and suffering characteristically associated with anxieties about human mortality. According to her, to be is to be the ultimate ineffable undifferentiated Being, the birthless and the deathless-the One. The other friends, whose philosophical attitudes are broadly pragmatist, relativist, and realist, inquire in

Interpretation and its objects : studies in the philosophy of Michael Krausz( )

4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 783 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume collects twenty-one original essays that discuss Michael Krausz's distinctive and provocative contribution to the theory of interpretation. At the beginning of the book Krausz offers a synoptic review of his central claims, and he concludes with a substantive essay that replies to scholars from the United States, England, Germany, India, Japan, and Australia. Krausz's philosophical work centers around a distinction that divides interpreters of cultural achievements into two groups. Singularists assume that for any object of interpretation only one single admissible interpretation c

The Concept of creativity in science and art( Book )

8 editions published between 1981 and 1985 in English and held by 505 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This third volume of American University Publications in Philos­ ophy continues the tradition of presenting books in the series shaping current frontiers and new directions in phi. osophical reflection. In a period emerging from the neglect of creativity by positivism, Professors Dutton and Krausz and their eminent colleagues included in the collection challenge modern philosophy to explore the concept of creativity in both scientific inquiry and artistic production. In view of the fact that Professor Krausz served at one time as Visiting Professor of Philosophy at The American University we are especially pleased to include this volume in the series. HAROLD A. DURFEE, for the editors of American University Publications in Philosophy EDITORS' PREFACE While the literature on the psychology of creativity is substantial, surprisingly little attention has been paid to the subject by philos­ ophers in recent years. This fact is no doubt owed in 'part to the legacy of positivism, whose tenets have included a sharp distinction between what Hans Reichenbach called the context of discovery and the context of justification. Philosophy in this view must address itself to the logic of justifying hypotheses; little of philo­ sophical importance can be said about the more creative business of discovering them. That, positivism has held, is no more than a merely psychological question: since there is no logic of discovery or creation, there can be no philosophical reconstruction of it

Rationality, relativism, and the human sciences by Joseph Margolis( Book )

10 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 304 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Greater Philadelphia Philosophy Consortium was launched in the early eighties. It began during a particularly lean period in the American economy. But its success is linked as much to the need to be in touch with the rapidly changing currents of the philosophical climate as with the need to insure an adequately stocked professional community in the Philadelphia area faced, perhaps permanently, with the threat of increasing attrition. The member schools of the Consortium now include Bryn Mawr College, the University of Pennsylvania, Temple University, and Villanova University, that is, the schools of the area that offer advanced degrees in philosophy. The philosophy faculties of these schools form the core of the Consortium, which offers graduate students the instructional and library facilities of each member school. The Consortium is also supported by the associated faculties of other regional schools that do not offer advanced degrees - notably, those at Drexel University, Haverford College, La Salle University, and Swarthmore College - both philosophers and members of other departments as well as interested and professionally qualified persons from the entire region. The affiliated and core professionals now number several hundreds, and the Consortium's various ventures have been received most enthusiastically by the academic community. At this moment, the Consortium is planning its fifth year of what it calls the Conferences on the Philosophy of the Human Studies

Interpretation, relativism, and the metaphysics of culture : themes in the philosophy of Joseph Margolis( Book )

7 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Contemporary American philosopher Joseph Margolis has created and defended a metaphysics and a logic that he has applied throughout the realms of culture. But is Margolis's account fully consistent? Is it adequate to the needs of interpreting practice in the natural and human sciences?"--BOOK JACKET. "In a spirit of good-natured dialogue, leading scholars of various philosophical persuasions critically engage these important questions. The fourteen previously unpublished essays in this volume explore Margolis's contributions, ranging from the subtle issues of detail within his system to very general questions of the need, viability, and value of a hermeneutic, relativistic metaphysics of flux. At the conclusion of the book, Professor Margolis responds to points raised in each paper."--Jacket
