Beyond intifada : narratives of freedom fighters in the Gaza Strip by Ḥayim Gordon( Book )

6 editions published between 2003 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 458 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book presents the personal narratives of six Palestinians - four men and two women - whose stories are central to describing the greater Palestinian plight in the Gaza Strip, the Intifada, the beginning of the 1993 peace process, and beyond. Each Palestinian has related crucial events in his or her life story, and by reading their accounts, we come to see the struggle through their eyes and put a human face on events that Western media and consciousness have only partially explored. This book is an important corrective for scholars, students, researchers, and the general reading public concerned about the contemporary Middle East and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict."--Jacket

The Heidegger-Buber controversy : the status of the I-Thou by Ḥayim Gordon( Book )

10 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 302 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The I-Thou controversy between these two thinkers is a significant but often overlooked issue in philosophy and theology. In one of the first books to truly address the subject, Haim Gordon explores the arguments of both Martin Heidegger and Martin Buber regarding the The I-Thou relationship and its significance for human existence. Gordon's work illuminates Heidegger's complex and enlightening ontology--one that describes the everyday life of the human in such a way that there is no place for the I-Thou relationship. Buber, on the other hand, argues for the significance of the I-Thou relationship within human existence, and highlights the ways in which Heidegger's philosophy fails to grasp this important point. After examining the fundamental ontology of Heidegger, set beside the ontological insights of Buber concerning this relationship, Gordon concludes that each of these important twentieth-century philosophers was guilty of ignoring the contributions made by the other to the study of ontology and being. By exploring the complicated dynamic between Heidegger and Buber, Gordon presents the reader with valuable insights and a deeper understanding of human existence and relationships. The implications of both this controversy and its resolution are far reaching for many other philosophical disciplines, including social and political philosophy, metaphysics, and ethics

Sartre and evil : guidelines for a struggle by Ḥayim Gordon( Book )

3 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 233 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sartre has more to say about Evil - its origins in, effects on modern man, and how to fight it - than any other philosopher in the 20th century. In this book, the authors examine many of Sartre's literary and philosophical writings for what they have to say about the nature of Evil and its effect on our lives. From this, they evolve guidelines for those wishing to fight Evil in their own lives. Using examples from their experience with human rights violations, the authors suggest that Evil is "any attempt to purposely destroy the freedom of a person" and clearly demonstrate that Sartre's work can be useful as a guide for getting along in the contemporary world."--Résumé de l'éditeur

Fighting evil : unsung heroes in the novels of Graham Greene by Ḥayim Gordon( Book )

3 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What can we learn from the novels of Graham Greene? This book argues that Greene's writings have much to teach us about fighting evil here and now, and about endeavoring to live a worthy life. In novels that span half of the twentieth century, Greene related stories of evil persons who destroyed the freedom of others and of a few simple people who fought them. Through these stories he showed us three basic truths: first, evil exists; second, it is possible to fight it; and third, one may attain wisdom and sometimes a very limited glory by undertaking such a struggle. Gordon's study sets forth its own important lesson: thinking and assuming responsibility for the world, guided by the reading of great literature, are keystones of any worthy life.'

Heidegger on truth and myth : a rejection of postmodernism by Ḥayim Gordon( Book )

3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Truth and myth are predominant themes in Martin Heidegger's thinking. Heidegger showed that ancient Greek understanding of truth as aletheia (unconcealment) can teach us about learning from the wisdom that is found in myths and can also enhance human existence. This book describes some of Heidegger's major insights concerning truth as aletheia and their implications. It also shows how Heidegger's thinking on truth discloses the shallowness and the disrespect for truth in the writings of four well-known postmodernist writers: Lyotard, MacIntyre, Rorty, and Derrida."--Publisher's website
Hobbema and Heidegger : on truth and beauty by Rivca Gordon( Book )

9 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book shows how the beautiful landscape paintings of Meindert Hobbema, a seventeenth-century painter of the Dutch Golden Age, are in accord with the thought of Martin Heidegger, a twentieth-century philosopher, on beauty and truth. Since little is known about Hobbema's life, this work concentrates on ideas that are central to Heidegger's philosophy of art and beauty and the way these ideas are attuned to Hobbema's landscapes. Heidegger holds that the beauty of a great work of art calls out from that work and is firmly linked to the disclosure of hidden truths concerning essences of beings. This book illustrates in detail that beauty and such truths indeed call out from Hobbema's paintings."--Jacket
Israel today by Ḥayim Gordon( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Israel Today offers a description of the challenges Israel has encountered since its founding in 1948. Haim Gordon depicts the dynamic historical developments that have led to the return of the Jewish people to the land of their forefathers and to the establishment of contemporary Israel. More specifically, Gordon analyzes the country's precarious relations to its neighbors and the dangers to national security it faces from the outside. Internal problems arise from the need to blend into one nation the many thousands of Jews who have arrived from more than 120 lands to join in the building of the Jewish State. These historical details revolve around a discussion of daily life in Israel today, featuring aspects such as politics, economics, education, and Jewish spirituality. --From publisher's description

Sophistry and twentieth-century art by Ḥayim Gordon( Book )

3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book rejects the widespread fakeries that emerged in twentieth-century art, which may be called by their Platonic name of sophistry. The book applies ideas of Martin Heidegger and Nicolas Berdyaev about what constitutes a beautiful work of art and about how an authentic relation to the beauty in a work of art enhances human existence."--BOOK JACKET
