16 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 1,078 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Main description: Nicholas Rescher stands as a major figure in American Philosophy today. His philosophical contribution, ranging over fifty years, is marked by a profound respect for the fate of the human condition in a world of unparalleled scientific and technological innovation. This work brings under the centrally unifying theme of 'rationality' some of the issues on values and personal responsibility he has addressed during his long and distinguished career. The book is intended to illustrate the synthesis of Rescher's thinking relative to these ideas, as expounded upon for many decades

The logics of preference : a study of prohairetic logics in twentieth century philosophy by Nicholas J Moutafakis( Book )

13 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 238 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With characteristic incisiveness Georg Henrik von Wright identifies pro haireticIogic (i. e. the logic of preference) as the core of a general theory of value concepts. Essentially, this nucleus involves the logical study of acts from the point of view of their preferability. 1 (italics added) Though the term prohairesis is found in Plato, as well as in Aristotle's treatment of the relations of preference, it is von Wright who introduces this word into contemporary analytical philoso phy, and succinctly specifies the philosophical dimensions it encompasses. The above emphasis upon the philosophical study of the formalization of preferences is a matter of utmost importance for understanding the type of in quiry this investigation attempts to initiate. Over the past one hundred years the literature on general theories of subjective utility has become massive, where one considers the work done in psychometrics, econometrics, statistical theories, probability theories, etc., etc. Histories in these areas are strong in tracing various evolutions in the development of the concept of preference in decision-making. However, what has not been investigated with sustained at tention are the fundamentally philosophical inquiries into the formalization of preference-relations
