Beyond sets : a venture in collection-theoretic revisionism by Nicholas Rescher( )

9 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 1,008 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is the product of a collaboration stretching the years 2007-10, whose initial fruit was a paper on "Plenum Theory" published in Nous. The work grew out of the author's conviction that standard set theory, which had evolved to meet the needs of mathematics, was not fully adequate to the less abstractly geared and rigidly determine needs of less finalized ranges of inquiry and deliberation

Philosophy of science is a paradigm of contemporary intellectual rigor. It offers a challenge of clarification, a promise of systematic understanding, and an invitation to innovative conceptual exploration. Such is its appeal. The occult traditions are steeped in antiquity. They reach us with an atmosphere of mystery, a whisper of wisdom, and a hint of beckoning unknown. Such is their appeal. This is an attempted to bring the two together

The philosopher's toolkit : how to be the most rational person in any room by Patrick Grim( Recording )

5 editions published between 2002 and 2013 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This applied philosophy course arms you against the perils of bad thinking and supplies you with an arsenal of strategies to help you be more creative, logical, inventive, realistic, and rational in all aspects of your daily life, from the office to the voting booth. Unlike courses in other disciplines, which are descriptive, this course is normative. That is, instead of merely describing how we do think, the focus of this course is how we should think. Along the way, you'll meet some of history's greatest thinkers, from Plato and Aristotle to Einstein and John von Neumann. In addition to looking at what they thought, you'll study how they thought--what strategies did they employ to come up with their great ideas? What tools can we adopt to make us better thinkers?

"How is it that our brain creates all the subjective experiences of our lives every single day-the experiences we call reality' That is the mind-body problem. In Mind-Body Philosophy, Professor Patrick Grim of the State University of New York at Stony Brook leads an intellectually exhilarating tour through millennia of philosophy and science addressing one of life's greatest conundrums. But you won't just be a spectator as Dr. Grim engages and encourages each of us to come to our own conclusions. Is the mind part of the body' Or could the body be part of the mind' And if they are separate, what is the mechanism for interaction' This course poses these challenging questions and more, for philosophers and scientists of all levels. In this course, you'll learn about the many ways in which philosophy, mathematics, psychology, and cutting-edge neuroscience have weighed in on the mind-body problem, all to varying degrees of success. You'll learn how computers and artificial intelligence have challenged our notions of the mind and consciousness and what scientists have learned from our dreams, hallucinations, and experiences under anesthesia. And you'll enjoy the fascinating, creative thought experiments that address knowledge, perception, and consciousness. What is the answer to the mind-body problem' No one knows ... yet. But in Mind-Body Philosophy, Dr. Grim suggests a new method of inquiry that could possibly lead to a solution: a philosophical science of consciousness, combining the best that philosophy and science have to offer. But even without an answer, Dr. Grim says, this passionate pursuit of truth is a crucially important enterprise in itself."
