Jokes : philosophical thoughts on joking matters by Ted Cohen( )

22 editions published between 1999 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 2,704 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jokes is a book of jokes and a book about them. Cohen loves a good laugh, but as a philosopher, he is also interested in how jokes work, why they work, and when they don't. The delight at the end of a joke is the result of a complex set of conditions and processes, and Cohen takes us through these conditions in a philosophical exploration of humor. He considers questions of audience, selection of joke topics, the ethnic character of jokes, and their morality, all with plenty of examples that will make you either chuckle or wince. Jokes: more humorous than other philosophy books, more philosophical than other humor books."--Jacket
Thinking of others : on the talent for metaphor by Ted Cohen( )

22 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in English and held by 1,818 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Thinking of Others, Ted Cohen argues that the ability to imagine oneself as another person is an indispensable human capacity - as essential to moral awareness as it is to literary appreciation - and that this talent for identification is the same as the talent for metaphor. To be able to see oneself as someone else, whether the someone else is a real person or a fictional character, is to exercise the ability to deal with metaphor and other figurative language. The underlying faculty, Cohen argues, is the same - simply the ability to think of one thing as another when it plainly is not." "An original meditation on the necessity of imagination to moral and aesthetic life, Thinking of Others is an important contribution to philosophy and literary theory."--Jacket

Serious larks : the philosophy of Ted Cohen by Ted Cohen( Book )

4 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ted Cohen was an original and captivating essayist known for his inquisitive intelligence, wit, charm, and a deeply humane feel for life. For Cohen, writing was a way of discovering, and also celebrating, the depth and complexity of things overlooked by most professional philosophers and aestheticians?but not by most people. Whether writing about the rules of baseball, of driving, or of Kant?s Third Critique; about Hitchcock, ceramics, or jokes, Cohen proved that if you study the world with a bemused but honest attentiveness, you can find something to philosophize about more or less anywhere. ?This collection, edited and introduced by philosopher Daniel Herwitz, brings together some of Cohen?s best work to capture the unique style that made Cohen one of the most beloved philosophers of his generation. Among the perceptive, engaging, and laugh-out-loud funny reflections on movies, sports, art, language, and life included here are Cohen?s classic papers on metaphor and his Pushcart Prize?winning essay on baseball, as well as memoir, fiction, and even poetry. Full of free-spirited inventiveness, these Serious Larks would be equally at home outside Thoreau?s cabin on the waters of Walden Pond as they are here, proving that intelligence, sensitivity, and good humor can be found in philosophical writing after all

Ética y estética : ensayos en la intersección by Jerrold Levinson( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in Spanish and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Los artículos recopilados cuestionan la relación entre ética y estética desde el punto de vista estético: unos autores se centran en la comparación entre la argumentación y la justificación ética y estética o entre los valores de uno y otro tipo; otros abordan la relación entre el arte y la moral desde distintas posiciones, partiendo del rechazo del autonomismo y de la convicción de que el valor estético de la obra de arte depende de los juicios éticos implicados en su interpretación y en su evaluación. Otros autores se ocupan de aquellos casos en que el juicio moral y el juicio estético apuntan a diferentes direcciones a pesar de la imposibilidad de separar práctica o teóricamente sus objetos

Aesthetics and ethics : essays at the intersection by Richard W Miller( Book )

2 editions published between 2001 and 2006 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This major collection of new essays stands at the border of aesthetics and ethics and deals with charged issues of practical import: art and morality, the ethics of taste, censorship, and the objectivity of aesthetic judgments. As such its potential interest is by no means confined to professional philosophers; it should also appeal to art historians and critics, literary theorists, and students of film and the media. Prominent philosophers in both aesthetics and ethics tackle a wide array of issues. Some of the questions explored include: Can art be morally enlightening and, if so, how? If a work of art is morally better, does that make it better as art? Is morally deficient art to be shunned or even censored? Do subjects of artworks have rights as to how they are represented? Do artists have duties as artists and duties as human beings and, if so, to whom? How much tension is there between the demands of art and the demands of life? Is there such a thing as a personal aesthetic and, if so, what justification does it stand in need of? How much agreement can we reasonably expect to achieve in ethical and aesthetic matters as compared with scientific ones?

Benefits of continuous isoniazid preventive therapy may outweigh resistance risks in a declining tuberculosis/HIV coepidemic( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract : Supplemental Digital Content is available in the text Abstract : Objective: Extending the duration of isoniazid preventive therapy (IPT) among people living with HIV (PLHIV) may improve its effectiveness at both individual and population levels, but could also increase selective pressure in favor of isoniazid-resistant tuberculosis (TB) strains. The objective of this study was to determine the relative importance of these two effects. Methods: Transmission dynamic model. Design: We created a mathematical model of TB transmission incorporating HIV incidence and treatment, mixed strain latent TB infections, and four different phenotypes of TB drug resistance (pan-susceptible, isoniazid monoresistant, rifampicin monoresistant, and multidrug resistant). We used this model to project the effects of IPT duration on the incidence of isoniazid-sensitive and isoniazid-resistant TB as well as mortality among PLHIV. We evaluated the sensitivity of our baseline model, which was calibrated to data from Botswana, to different assumptions about the future trajectory of the TB epidemic. Results: Our model suggests that, in the context of a declining TB epidemic such as that currently observed in Botswana, the incidence and mortality benefits of continuous IPT for PLHIV are likely to outweigh the potential resistance risks associated with long-duration IPT. However, should TB epidemics fail to remain in control, as was observed during the initial emergence of HIV, the selective pressure imposed by widespread use of continuous IPT on isoniazid-resistant TB incidence may erode its initial benefits. Conclusion: Resistance concerns are likely insufficient to rule out use of continuous IPT when coupled with effective TB treatment, case finding, and HIV control
