Atheism and theism by J. J. C Smart( Book )

32 editions published between 1996 and 2010 in English and held by 585 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Smart opens the debate by arguing that theism is philosophically untenable and seeks to explain metaphysical truth in the light of total science. Haldane continues the discussion by affirming that the existence of the world, and the possibility of our coming to have knowledge of it, depend upon the existence of a creating, sustaining, personal God. This is followed by replies, where each philosopher has the chance to respond and to defend his position. This second edition contains new essays by each philosopher, responding to criticisms and building on their previous work."--BOOK JACKET

Reality, representation, and projection( Book )

15 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and Elamite and held by 443 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Reality, Representation, and Projection is an important collection of new essays on a range of topics relating to realism and its rivals in metaphysics, logic, metaethics, and epistemology. The contributors are some of the leading authors in these fields, including the late Ian McFetridge, Mark Johnston, John Skorupski, Christopher Peacocke, Michael Williams, Edward Craig, Michael Smith, John Campbell, Peter Railton, David Wiggins, Bob Hale, Simon Blackburn, John Haldane, and Crispin Wright. Several of the essays constitute definitive statements of their views. In some cases authors write in response to the essays of other contributors, while in other cases they proceed independently. Although not primarily historical, this collection includes discussions of philosophers from the Middle Ages to the present day, from Aquinas to Wittgenstein. No one seriously interested in questions about realism, whether as a general philosophical outlook or as a particular position within specific debates, can afford to be without this collection

Uneasy virtue by Julia Driver( )

2 editions published between 2001 and 2005 in English and held by 360 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The predominant view of moral virtue can be traced back to Aristotle. He believed that moral virtue must involve intellectual excellence. To have moral virtue one must have practical wisdom - the ability to deliberate well and to see what is morally relevant in a given context. Julia Driver challenges this classical theory of virtue, arguing that it fails to take into account virtues which do seem to involve ignorance or epistemic defect. Some 'virtues of ignorance' are counterexamples to accounts of virtue which hold that moral virtue must involve practical wisdom. Modesty, for example, is generally considered to be a virtue even though the modest person may be making an inaccurate assessment of his or her accomplishments. Driver argues that we should abandon the highly intellectualist view of virtue and instead adopt a consequentialist perspective which holds that virtue is simply a character trait which systematically produces good consequences
Mind, metaphysics, and value in the Thomistic and analytical traditions( Book )

10 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 309 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An intelligent person's guide to religion by John Haldane( Book )

14 editions published between 1999 and 2005 in English and held by 307 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What use is religion in the modern world? From the Enlightenment, philosophers have stripped faith of its claim to being part of human knowledge. But since the dismantling of religion, the ancient and enduring questions about the meaning of our existence - questions that haunt all of us at some point during our lives - have never been adequately answered. Drawing on many aspects of human culture, John Haldane offers a defence of religion as not only credible but necessary. He explores the place of religion in relation to science, in making sense of evil, in understanding history and in explaining value. He also looks at religion's impact on art and its complex relationship with death. An Intelligent Person's Guide to Religion argues for the necessity of faith in modern society."--BOOK JACKET
