Hispanics/Latinos in the United States : ethnicity, race, and rights by Jorge J. E Gracia( Book )

8 editions published between 2000 and 2012 in English and held by 690 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The essays collected in this volume represent the efforts of a varied and interdisciplinary group of scholars to come to grips with some of these pressing issues. Although the government generally defines Hispanics/Latinos in ethnic terms, the category is often used racially. One of the central unifying threads in this volume, then, is the relationship between Hispanic/Latino identity, on the one hand, and ethnicity and race, on the other."--Jacket
Mel Gibson's Passion and philosophy : the cross, the questions, the controversy by Jorge J. E Gracia( Book )

11 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in English and held by 654 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Passion of the Christ, Mel Gibson's spectacular film about the death of Jesus, has quickly become one of the most widely-viewed movies of all time?and one of the most fiercely vilified. It is more loved and simultaneously more loathed than any previous work of cinematographic art. Some maintain that this film has brought them to a new faith in Christ or a deeper understanding of the faith they already had. Others criticize the work for its supposedly gratuitous gore, alleged historical inaccuracy, or its debatable theological assumptions. In Mel Gibson's Passion and P

Latinos in America : philosophy and social identity by Jorge J. E Gracia( Book )

20 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 557 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What is it to be Latino? What is the place of Latinos in America? And how do Latinos think about themselves and their identity? This is the first book to ask and answer these questions in a philosophical context. It rejects answers based on stereotypes that feed the fear generated in both in the Latino and non-Latino population by the enormous growth of Latino numbers in the United States. And it proposes a new way of thinking about Latinos based on a familial-historical view that allows for negotiation, accommodation, and change

Individuation and identity in early modern philosophy : Descartes to Kant by Kenneth F Barber( Book )

9 editions published in 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 484 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Philosophy in the sixteenth through eighteenth centuries has traditionally been chracterized as being primarily concerned with epistemological issues. This book is not intended to overturn this characterization but rather to balance it through an examination of equally important metaphysical, or ontological, positions held, explicitly or implicitly, by philosophers in this period. Major philosophers whose views are discussed in this book include Descartes, Malebranche, Spinoza, Locke, Berkeley, Hume, Leibniz, Wolff, and Kant. In addition, the contributors of minor Cartesians, especially Regis and Desgabets, are analyzed in a separate chapter. Although the views of early modern philosophers on individuation and identity have been discussed before, these discussions have usually been treated as asides in a larger context. This book is the first to concentrate on the problems of individuation and identity in early modern philosophy and to trace their philosophical development through the period in a coherent way

Metaphysics and its task : the search for the categorial foundation of knowledge by Jorge J. E Gracia( Book )

10 editions published in 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 298 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"By offering the first systematic analysis of the nature of the discipline, Metaphysics and its Task answers why metaphysics always recovers from the attacks it has been subjected to throughout its history. This is done by examining its object, method, aim, and the kind of propositions of which it is composed. In addition to presenting a new conception of metaphysics and an explanation of the resilience of the discipline, the book offers a novel understanding of the nature and ontological status of categories, an analysis of the nature of reductionism and its role in philosophy, and a discussion and criticism of the main views concerning the nature of metaphysics developed in the history of philosophy."--BOOK JACKET
A theory of textuality : the logic and epistemology by Jorge J. E Gracia( Book )

10 editions published in 1995 in English and Undetermined and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author begins with a logical analysis of the notion of text resulting in a definition that serves as the basis for the distinctions he subsequently draws between texts on the one hand and language, artifacts, and art objects on the other; and for the classification of texts according to their modality and function. The second part of the book uses the conclusions of the first part to solve the various epistemological issues which have been raised about texts by philosophers of language, semioticians, hermeneuticists, literary critics, semanticists, aestheticians, and historiographers
Texts : ontological status, identity, author, audience by Jorge J. E Gracia( Book )

11 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 264 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book completes the theory of textuality whose logical and epistemological dimensions were presented in Gracia's book, A Theory of Textuality: The Logic and Epistemology (SUNY Press). It provides an ontological characterization of texts consistent with the conception of texts defended in the earlier book; it explores the issues raised by the identity of various texts; and it presents a view of the identity and function of authors and audiences and of their relations to texts. The discussion is systematic, comprehensive, and detailed. Gracia raises all of the important issues related to texts within the areas he explores and takes into account the pertinent literature. The style is argumentative and clear, and the position Gracia defends is based on common sense. He stays clear of the extreme views some contemporary authors have taken with respect to texts and textuality." "This is the only book of its kind. It is the first to develop a comprehensive theory and to adopt an integrative approach where the issues and their solutions are seen as closely connected."--Jacket
Painting Borges : philosophy interpreting art interpreting literature by Jorge J. E Gracia( Book )

8 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A provocative examination of the artistic interpretation of twelve of Borges' most famous stories. In Painting Borges, Jorge J.E. Gracia explores in depth the artistic interpretation of fiction using a novel and philosophically sophisticated approach. The book presents a provocative theory of the artistic interpretation of literature, thus contributing both to aesthetics and hermeneutics; it provides original artistic and philosophical interpretations of twelve of Borges's most famous stories, thus making new inroads in to the understanding of Borges's work; and it introduces readers to recent figurative Argentinean and Cuban art, two of the most vibrant artistic currents today. The book breaks new ground because, although the artistic interpretation of literature is nothing new in the history of art, the philosophical exploration of how artists have interpreted literature is a topic that has been largely ignored."--Project Muse
