Truth and history by Murray G Murphey( )

7 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 1,596 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Setting aside barren issues such as the scientific status of history, Murray G. Murphey develops an empirical approach to historical study that can yield theories (interpretations) that are testable and confirmable. He examines the evidence on which historical theories are based, the typesof explanations used, and particularly the way historical theories are tested. The book treats not only the actual process of historical research but also the philosophical problems involved in historical work. The treatment of causation is new, as is the discussion of epistemology. In his discussions, Murphey covers a wide range of sources and examples, including Frederick Jackson Turner, the Gospels, perspectiveson the causesofthe Great Depression, the Vinland Map, Witchcraft, and material culture. The book is addressed to all who do history or write about it, and it will be a useful text for those who teach courses in historiography."--Jacket

C.I. Lewis : the last great pragmatist by Murray G Murphey( Book )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 454 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

He also examines how Lewis developed in a more precise and systematic way the Pragmatism of Peirce, James, and Dewey, while retaining their combination of empiricism and humanism and marshalling the weapons of analytic philosophy in their defense. Detailed attention is given to the important contributions of Lewis's work in logic, epistemology, value theory, meaning, and ethics."--Jacket

Thorstein Veblen : economist and social theorist by Murray G Murphey( )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his latest book, scholar-historian Murray G. Murphey exhaustively explores the life and theory of Thorstein Veblen (1857-1929), whom, many scholars agree, remains one of the leading social theorists of all time, if not also one of the more confounding. Murphey's account begins with a brief economic history of nineteenth-century America, wherein he examines the conditions that formed Veblen's ideology. With that understanding, the author studies Veblen's personal history and brings to the fore his foundational ideas on human psychology, race, his theory of knowledge, and his analysis of social evolution. In the book's later chapters, Murphey considers Veblen's writing through the scope of his major volumes - The Theory of the Leisure Class, The Theory of Business Enterprise, and Imperial Germany and the Industrial Revolution, among others. Spanning the latter stages of the nineteenth century into the first several decades of the twentieth century, Murphey traces Veblen's radical economics and thinking within the broader context of America's economic theory. In so doing, he upholds Veblen's influence on the canons of economics and social science, and importantly, he attempts to resolve the lingering mystery behind one of America's more puzzling and influential theorists

A history of philosophy in America by Elizabeth Flower( Book )

5 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book began, more than a dozen years ago, as a joint venture into the understanding of the course of philosophic thought in America. In 1963 we published a brief preliminary volume for the Union Panamericana entitled Principales Tendencias de la Filosofía Norteamericana. Since that bantling appeared, our enterprise has progressed through an unbelievably perilous and circuitous route to its present form, helped on at critical junctures by the kindness of a variety of Samaritans. Although we have both contributed to every chapter, each author bears a primary responsibility for some chapters. Elizabeth Flowers bears primary responsibility for chapters 4, 5, 6, 8, 11, 14, and 15; Murray Murphey is chiefly responsible for chapters 1, 2, 3, 7, 9, 10, and 12. Chapter 13 was a joint product
