Kant's analytic by Jonathan Bennett( Book )

75 editions published between 1966 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 1,341 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Mr Bennett, as was to be expected, has written a first-rate book on Kant's Analytic. It is vivid, entertaining, and extremely instructive. It will be found of absorbing interest both by those who already know the Critique and by those - if there are any such - who have a developed interest in philosophy, yet no direct acquaintance with Kant. These last it will surely drive to the text and, as surely, will drive them to approach it in a truly philosophical spirit. Bennett's Kant is not a giant immersed, or frozen, in time. He is a great contemporary - a little out of touch, admittedly, with recent developments in mathematics and physics - but one with whom we can all argue, against him, at his side, or obliquely to him. And so Bennett does argue, continuously, fiercely, and fruitfully; and summons to join in the argument, at appropriate moments, those older contemporaries, Locke, Leibniz, Berkeley, and Hume, and those younger contemporaries, Wittgenstein, Ryle, Ayler, Quine, Quinton, Warnock, and others. This is splendid, and a necessary corrective to that extraordinary isolation in which Kant tends to be islanded, partly indeed, by his own unique qualities, but partly by oceans of the wrong kind of respect. Bennett, continuously engaging his great antagonist, shows the right kind.'
Kant's Dialectic by Jonathan Bennett( Book )

43 editions published between 1971 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jonathan Bennett's analysis of the second half of Kant's Critique of Pure Reason, in which Kant concerns himself with topics such as substance, the nature of the self, the cosmos, freedom and the existence of God, continues to be an engaging and accessible exploration of Kant's major work. Presented in a fresh twenty-first-century series livery, and including a specially commissioned preface written by Karl Ameriks, illuminating its enduring importance and relevance to philosophical enquiry, this influential work has been revived for a new generation of readers

The act itself by Jonathan Bennett( )

36 editions published between 1995 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 952 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Act Itself offers a deeper understanding of what is going on in our own moral thoughts about human behaviour. Jonathan Bennett argues that many of the descriptions of behaviour on which our thoughts are based are confused; others may be free of confusion, but still we are not clear in our minds about what thoughts they are. His aim is to show how to use conceptual analysis to get more control of our thoughts and thus of our moral and intellectual lives

Leibniz : New Essays on Human Understanding by Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz( )

2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the New Essays on Human Understanding, Leibniz argues chapter by chapter with John Locke's Essay Concerning Human Understanding, challenging his views about knowledge, personal identity, God, morality, mind and matter, nature versus nurture, logic and language, and a host of other topics. The work is a series of sharp, deep discussions by one great philosopher of the work of another. Leibniz's references to his contemporaries and his discussions of the ideas and institutions of the age make this a fascinating and valuable document in the history of ideas. The work was originally written in French, and the version by Peter Remnant and Jonathan Bennett, based on the only reliable French edition (published in 1962), first appeared in 1981 and has become the standard English translation. It has been thoroughly revised for this series and provided with a new and longer introduction, a chronology on Leibniz's life and career and a guide to further reading
Spinoza on knowledge and the human mind : papers presented at the second Jerusalem conference (Ethica II) by Spinoza on knowledge and the human mind( Book )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Truth, adequacy and error, the Mind-Body relation and the meaning of "having" an idea are issues still at the centre of philosophical debate. Spinoza belongs to those past masters whose work always inspires renewed insights on these as on other philosophical issues. This volume revolves around part II of Spinoza's "opus magnum", the "Ethics" where he offers his theory of knowledge and the human mind. Stuart Hampshire writes about "Truth and Correspondence"; Alexandre Matheron discusses "Ideas of Ideas and Certainty"; Alan Donagon writes on "Language, Ideas and Reasoning"; Jonathan Bennett tackles the difficult one substance-two attributes issue; and Yirmiyahu Yovel analyzes "common notions" and error. Papers are also presented by Jean-Luc Marion, Pierre-Francois Moreau, Guttorm Floistad, Wallace I. Matson, Wim Klever, Elhanan Yakira, Marcelo Dascal, Wolfgang Bartuschat, Amihud Gilead and Filippo Mignini. This work is based on the second Jerusalem Conference (1989). Each conference in this series, and the ensuing volume, focuses on a specific "family" of issues: the first five follow Spinoza's own division in his "Ethics", and the other two deal with Spinoza's social and political theory and his life and sources
