On presence : variations and reflections by Ralph Harper( Book )

6 editions published between 1991 and 2006 in English and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Reverend Ralph Harper, a philosopher and theologian, has been credited with introducing existentialism to North America in 1948 with his work Existentialism: A Theory of Man. Forty years later, Harper delved deeper into the interior life of the human imagination in On Presence: Variations and Reflections. Winner of the 1992 Grawemeyer Award in Religion, On Presence is an insightful articulation of mankind's experience of presence. Drawing from philosophers like Kierkegaard, Heidegger, and Marcel, theologians like Augustine, Aquinas, and Tillich, mystics like Meister Eckhart and John of the Cross, and novelists like Dostoevsky and Proust, this compelling work considers the transcendent and religious dimensions of the ordinary mysteries in everyday life
The seventh solitude; metaphysical homelessness in Kierkegaard, Dostoevsky, and Nietzsche by Ralph Harper( Book )

12 editions published between 1965 and 1967 in English and held by 254 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In these three predecessors of existentialism, all of whom were profoundly influenced by Stendahl, the author finds evidence of that spiritual isolation which leads ultimately to personal solitude and philosophical nihilism. To these negative modes of being he opposes the alternatives embodied by St. Augustine and Proust -- the passion for God and the passion for creation
The Sleeping Beauty by Ralph Harper( Book )

7 editions published in 1955 in English and held by 225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author uses the symbolism of the Grimm Brothers' fairy tale, to examine the current nostalgia of the current age: longing for a "paradise lost". Harper "Draws his analogy with great subtlety and insight: the 1850s fairy godmother 'Progress' ... the 1900s briared castle of 'God is dead", today's awakening to Presence brought about by contemporary prince-philosophers. The Sleeping Beauty is fundamentally a thoughtful interpretation of this folk story in terms of such men as Gabriel Marcel, Martin Heidegger, Jean Paul Sartre, and Friedrich Nietzsche, and their particular destinies in relation to the development of philsophic thought of the last hundred years." -- Jacket flap
