Priorities and Christian ethics by Garth L Hallett( Book )

11 editions published between 1998 and 2008 in English and held by 411 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book provides the fullest contemporary treatment of an issue which is particularly pressing today: when the claims of the nearest (e.g. parents, children, spouses, friends) conflict with the claims of the neediest, as they constantly do, where should preference go? Professor Hallett focuses first on a specific, representative case, pitting the lesser need of a son against the greater need of starving strangers. He brings to bear on this single paradigm all the resources of theological and philosophical reflection - scriptures, patristic teaching, the Thomistic tradition, current debates; and from this single example he sheds light on a wide range of comparable cases, both private and public. This strategy leads to distinctive and challenging results, and helps to clarify the traditional "order of charity" and the celebrated "preferential option for the poor."

Linguistic philosophy : the central story by Garth L Hallett( Book )

7 editions published in 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How much authority should language, the medium of communication, be accorded as a determinant of truth and therefore of what we say? [author] argues that, although never explicitly debated, this is the most significant issue of linguistic philosophy. Here, for the first time, he traces the issue's story. Starting with representative thinkers--Plato, Aquinas, Kant, Frege, and the early Wittgenstein--who contested language's authority, the narrative then focuses on thinkers such as Carnap, Tarski, the later Wittgenstein, Flew, Russell, Malcolm, Austin, Kripke, Putnam, Strawson, Quine, and Habermas who, in diferent ways and to varying degrees, accorded language more authority. Implicit in this account is a challenge to philosophy as still widely practiced."--Back cover

One God of all? : probing pluralist identities by Garth L Hallett( Book )

12 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The claim has repeatedly been made, and has often been contested, that a single transcendent being is present or active in all of the world's major religions. In this view, names such as "God," "Allah," "nirvana," "Vishnu," and "Brahman" all refer to the same transcendent reality. Absent from the debate and here provided is a serious study of such claims in the light of the most pertinent philosophical literature, namely that concerning questions of identity and individuation. Of necessity, the terms that the claims employ are very general and abstract: the world's religions, it is said, all r
Identity and mystery in themes of Christian faith : late-Wittgensteinian perspectives by Garth L Hallett( Book )

6 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Identity and Mystery in Themes of Christian Faith presents the first sustained study of the identities than run through the heart of Christian faith and theology : the identity of Jesus with God, of each of the three divine persons with God, of the Eucharist with the body and blood of Christ, of present teaching with traditional teaching and of traditional teaching with revelation, of the present church with the church of the Apostles, of the risen Christ with the crucified Christ, and of the blessed with the deceased. Resisting essentialism and stressing Wittgensteinian analogy, Hallett makes due room for mystery. By locating rather than explaining the mystery he throws new light on each of the identities studied."--Jacket

Invisible language : its incalculable significance for philosophy by Garth L Hallett( Book )

5 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Invisible Language: Its Incalcuable Significance for Philosophy reveals that although the use of language is visible or audible, the medium employed boasts neither of these attributes. Garth L. Hallet suggests that from Plato until now, the intangibility of language has exercised a far more profound influence in philosophy than even Wittgenstein came close to demonstrating. Indeed, without that pervasive factor of language, the history of philosophy would have been undeniably different. Yet philosophy is, and can legitimately aspire to be, much more than a struggle between language and human comprehension of it. Ultimately, this book suggests that philosophy's positive possibilities, so often obscured by linguistically-inattentive practice, reach as far as human thought can reach
