The acting person by John Paul( Book )

10 editions published between 1979 and 2007 in 4 languages and held by 812 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Originally entitled Osoba i Czyn and published in Poland in 1969, The Acting Person is the official English translation and has been thoroughly edited and revised with the collaboration of the author. The book stresses that man must ceaselessly unravel his mysteries and strive for a new and more mature expression of his nature. The author sees this expression as an emphasis on the significance of the individual living in community and on the person in the process of performing an action. The author states in his preface that he has tried to face the major issues concerning life, nature, and the existence of man directly as they present themselves to man in his struggles to survive while maintaining the dignity of a human being, but who is torn apart between his all too limited condition and his highest aspirations to set himself free. --From publisher's description
Phenomenology of life : meeting the challenges of the present-day world by Anna-Teresa Tymieniecka( )

29 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and Multiple languages and held by 738 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Philosophy has been always received or bypassed for its resonance or aloofness with the spirit of the time. Should not philosophy/phenomenology of life be expected to do more to ascertain its validity? Should it not pass the pragmatic test, that is to respond directly to the life-concerns of its time? What is the role of the philosopher and philosophy today? Due to the ever-advancing scientific, technological, social and cultural changes that are shaping human life and the life-world-in-transformation, we are desperately seeking a measure to estimate life's unfolding, a compass to stir the course between Scylla and Charibda to maintain human-hood and creative insight for laying the cornerstones for the unforeseeable unfolding of life dynamisms. It is this challenge which philosophy/phenomenology of life meets with underlying ontopoietic unraveling of the hidden logoic concatenations of beingness-in-becoming. The present collection of essays offers contributions to answer this challenge by focusing upon measure, sharing-in-life, intersubjectivity and communication, societal equilibrium, education, and more. It will be of great interest to those working in the fields of Phenomenology, Philosophy, History of Philosophy, and Contemporary Philosophy
Imaginatio creatrix : the pivotal force of the genesis/ontopoiesis of human life and reality by Anna-Teresa Tymieniecka( )

17 editions published between 2004 and 2011 in English and held by 623 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The fulgurating power of creative imagination - Imaginatio Creatrix - setting in motion the Human Condition within the-unity-of-everything there-is-alive is the key to the rebirth of philosophy. From as early as 1971 (see the third volume of the Analecta Husserliana series, The Phenomenological Realism of the Possible Worlds, Anna-Teresa Tymieniecka, ed.), Imaginatio Creatrix has been the leitmotif for the research work of the World Phenomenology Institute (now published in eighty-three Analecta Husserliana volumes), one that is eliciting echoes from all around. Husserl's diagnosis of a crisis in Western science and culture, the inspiration of much of postmodern phenomenology, has yielded place to a wave of scientific discovery, technological invention, and change in societal life, individual lifestyles, the arts, etc. These throw a glaring light on human creative genius and the crucial role of the imagination that gives it expression. This present collection is an instance of that expression and the response it evokes. It manifests the role of imagination in forming and interpreting our world -in-transformation in a new way and opens our eyes to marvel at the new world on the way.

Beauty's appeal : measure and excess by Fine Arts, and Aesthetics International Society for Phenomenology( )

21 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 507 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Beauty fulfils human existence. As it registers in our aesthetic experience, beauty enhances nature??'s enchantment around us and our inward experience lifting our soul toward moral elevation. Carried by creative imagination (Imaginatio Creatrix), beauty participates in the moulding of the forms of the intellective constitution of the mind in tandem with praxis and seeks deeper enigmas of the real in the labyrinth of the cosmos. Yet with the evolution of human development and in technological inventions, beauty, while suffusing all modalities of experience, seems to undergo transformations and

Virtues and passions in literature : excellence, courage, engagements, wisdom, fulfilment by International Society for Phenomenology and Literature( )

23 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 502 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Paradoxically, our human virtues that maintain our societal fabric, emerge from passional grounds/sources in individual existence. It is the Human Condition that prompts our creative strivings beyond the natural round of life toward outstanding achievements. Our full possibilities allow our singular existence: excellence of individual character, courage, engagement, and wisdom to unfold. The transformations that the virtues work with a timing of human progress, never entirely accomplished, lift us toward personal fulfilment.

Education in human creative existential planning by Anna-Teresa Tymieniecka( )

22 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 493 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Education is the transmission of knowledge and skill from one generation to another, and is vitally significant for the growth and unfolding of the living individual. It manifests the quintessential ability of the logos to differentiate life in self-individualization from within, and in its spread through inter-generative networks. Without reaching the evolutive phase of the human creative condition, the human being establishes a unique creative platform on which to conduct its co-existence. On this platform the progress of life is being transformed from a natural ontopoietic accomplishment into an autonomous achievement of the creative planning of the human mind. Specifically, human education focuses upon creative planning moving like a pendulum between nature and freedom. The present collection of papers focuses on the underpinnings of the creative workings of the human strategies of reason. Papers by: Anna-Teresa Tymieniecka, Zaiga Ikere, Daniela Verducci, Klymet Selvi, Andrina Tonkli-Komel, Jan Szmyd, Brian Grassom, Alon Segev, Mara Rubene, Dean Komel, Patricia Trutty-Coohill, Carmen Cozma, Piotr Mroz, Clara Mandolini, Mobeen Shahid, Semiha Akinci, Oliver W.

The enigma of good and evil : the moral sentiment in literature by Anna-Teresa Tymieniecka( )

21 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 492 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Striking toward peace and harmony the human being is ceasely torn apart in personal, social, national life by wars, feuds, inequities and intimate personal conflicts for which there seems to be no respite. Does the human condition in interaction with others imply a constant adversity? Or, is this conflict owing to an interior or external factor of evil governing our attitudes and conduct toward the other person? To what criteria should I refer for appreciation, judgment, direction concerning my attitudes and my actions as they bear on the well-being of others? At the roots of these questions lies human experience which ought to be appropriately clarified before entering into speculative abstractions of the ethical theories and precepts. Literature, which in its very gist, dwells upon disentangling in multiple perspective the peripeteia of our life-experience offers us a unique field of source-material for moral and ethical investigations. Literature brings preeminently to light the Moral Sentiment which pervades our life with others -- our existence tout court. Being modulated through the course of our experiences the Moral Sentiment sustains the very sense of literature and of personal human life (Tymieniecka)
Human creation between reality and illusion by Fine Arts, and Aesthetics International Society for Phenomenology( )

16 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 489 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Identifying illusion with deception, we tend to oppose it to the reality of life. This collection of essay's looks at questions such as: Does not illusion open the seeming confines of factual reality into horizons of imagination which transform it? and, Does it not, like art, belong essentially to the makeup of human reality? Identifying quickly illusion with deception, we tend to oppose it to the reality of life. However, investigating in this collection of essays illusion's functions in the Arts, which thrives upon illusion and yet maintains its existential roots and meaningfullness in the real, we might wonder about the nature of reality itself. Does not illusion open the seeming confines of factual reality into horizons of imagination which transform it? Does it not, like art, belong essentially to the makeup of human reality? This work features papers by: Lanfranco Aceti, John Baldacchino, Maria Avelina Cecilia Lafuente, Jo Ann Circosta, Madalina Diaconu, Jennifer Anna Gosetti-Ferencei, Brian Grassom, Marguerite Harris, Andrew E. Hershberger, James Carlton Hughes, Lawrence Kimmel, Jung In Kwon, Ruth Ronen, Scott A. Sherer, Joanne Snow-Smith, Max Statkiewicz, Patricia Trutty-Coohill, Daniel Unger, and, James Werner
Temporality in life as seen through literature : contributions to phenomenology of life by Anna-Teresa Tymieniecka( )

22 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 486 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Temporality pervades the dynamic joint of existence, and the human being as such. As human beings unfold through ontopoiesis, each move of which punctuates the temporality of life, they, whose life experience, deliberation, planning, reflection and dreaming are permeated by temporal motivations and concerns, feel that they are engaged in the spinning of a common thread. Attributing to that involvement universal laws, constant existential validity and power, they absolutise/hypostasise its rule as a cosmic/human factor: "time". Yet today technologies are transforming the temporality of our existence by accelerating, intensifying, expanding our partaking in the world of life. Human communal and social involvement is being challenged in its personal significance to the core of our being. What happens to "time"? A basic reinvestigation of the nature of temporality is called for human creative endeavor - especially literature - may initiate it.; Having the human subject - the creator - at its center, literature is essentially engaged in temporality whether that of the mind or of the world of life through the creative process of writing, stage directing, or the reader's and viewer's reception. Out of the cross-motivations that the creative mind filters in its temporal synthesis in touch with all the perspectives of existence, there surges the deepest significance of life in humanity and culture. But, first of all, life comes to light as timing itself in its logos

Classic issues in Islamic philosophy and theology today by Anna-Teresa Tymieniecka( )

21 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 452 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of studies in classic issues of Islamic theology and philosophy, authored primarily by young Islamic scholars, is directed to Islamic and Occidental readers alike. While the questions here explored are classic, these studies are definitely not narrowly focused on historical matters or the delineation of the filiation of ideas. Rather they proceed from the personal quest of each of the authors, who are prompted by contemporary concerns as they seek to understand the old themes afresh. While appreciating the benefits of humanity's modern technological progress, they keenly discern the relevance of inherited Islamic wisdom in addressing the problems that accompany that progress. Two striking conclusions emerge as one absorbs these studies. Firstly, the deplored technological-pragmatic turn of present day civilization, which threatens to deconstruct the metaphysical core of Islamic as well as Christian thought and to silence the quest for Truth, is loosening its grip. The universal concerns of humanity call for a revivified authentic understanding of metaphysics, one to be enriched through the evolution of humankind. Into this New Enlightenment, which shimmers and beckons, Islamic wisdom is now entering and contributing. Secondly, the search for renewed Islamic illumination of the perennial concerns of human souls is manifested in our authors' sharing their philosophical insights and points of view across cultural borders in encounters with past and present Occidental thinkers. This work renews the precious ties between Islamic and Western thinkers that were formed in the Middle Ages and then disrupted

Destiny, the inward quest, temporality and life by Anna-Teresa Tymieniecka( )

17 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 445 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

“There is no greater gift to man than to understand nothing of his fate”, declares poet-philosopher Paul Valery.  And yet the searching human being seeks ceaselessly to disentangle the networks of experiences, desires, inward promptings, personal ambitions, and elevated strivings which directed his/hers life-course within changing circumstances in order to discover his sense of life. Literature seeks in numerous channels of insight the dominant threads of “the sense of life”, “the inward quest”, “the frames of experience” in reaching the inward sources of what we call ‘destiny’ inspired by experience and temporality which carry it on. This unusual collection reveals the deeper generative elements which form sense of life stretching between destiny and doom. They escape attention in their metamorphic transformations of the inexorable, irreversibility of time which undergoes different interpretations in the phases examining our life. Our key to life has to be ever discovered a new
Phenomenology of life from the animal soul to the human mind by Anna-Teresa Tymieniecka( )

14 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 443 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Book II: "The challenge presented by the recent tendencies to "naturalize" phenomenology, on the basis of the progress in biological and neurological sciences, calls for an investigation of the traditional mind-body problem. The progress in phenomenological investigation is up to answering that challenge by placing the issues at stake upon a novel platform, that is the ontopoiesis of life. The present collection of studies extends our investigation (see Analecta Husserliana vol. 93) by seeking the ontopoietic continuity of sense between the vitally and spiritually significant functions of life. From the multiple approaches stretching through "The Animal, the Human, and the Divine" (Ales Bello), there come to the fore the intellective, aesthetic, moral fruits of the creative human mind: "The In-Depth Body and the Coming About of Ego" (De Preester), "Consciousness in the Perspective of Evolution" (Fiut), "Science and the Human Phenomenon" (Zonneveld), "Specifically Human Empathy" (Adri Smalling), and others. The emphasis falls upon "The Living Soul" (Shkubulyani) as the common origin of life's sense giving functions, which in their ontopoietic unfolding become informed by the simultaneously originating human creative mind, crowned in its advance by the sacral "Spiritual Emergence" (Louchakova).:--Publisher
