Nietzsche's ontology by Laird Addis( )

16 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,007 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although there is a huge literature on Nietzsche’s philosophy, this is the first study in English that focuses on his ontology. Before proceeding to that ontology, Addis argues that, contrary to many commentators, Nietzsche defends both the possibility and the desirability of objectivity in the search for knowledge, including knowledge of the basic features of reality, that is, of ontology. In separate chapters, Addis then sets out, analyzes, and evaluates the five essential components of Nietzsche’s ontology: constant change, substances and things, minds, causation, and will to power. In each case, Addis contributes an original understanding of the feature under discussion, with more detail than exists in other treatments, and defended with quotes from relevant texts of Nietzsche
Ontology and analysis : essays and recollections about Gustav Bergmann by Laird Addis( )

11 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 995 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gustav Bergmann (1906-1987) was, arguably, the greatest ontologist of the twentieth century in pursuing the fundamental questions of first philosophy as deeply as any philosopher of any time. In 2006 and 2007, international conferences devoted solely to Bergmann's work were held at the University of Iowa in the USA, Université de Provence in France, and Università degli Studi Roma Tre in Italy. The papers in this volume were presented at the first of these conferences, in Iowa City, where Bergmann taught for nearly four decades after escaping from Europe, following the dissolution of the Vienn
Mind : ontology and explanation : collected papers 1981-2005 by Laird Addis( )

6 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 774 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this collection of papers by Laird Addis, published over approximately a quarter century, the main topics are the ontology of mind and the role of mind in the explanation of behavior. Addis defends a theory of natural signs, by which there is, in every conscious state including emotional states, an intrinsically intentional entity. He also argues that explanations of behavior by dispositional mental states, while not themselves causal explanations, presuppose the possibility of such explanations. The theory of dispositions is applied also to the theories of Chomsky and Freud. In broad strokes, Addis holds that, while there is a distinct realm of mental properties, behaviors admit of purely physical explanations."--Jacket
Of mind and music by Laird Addis( Book )

17 editions published between 1999 and 2004 in English and held by 690 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For most people music brings to mind a range of deep emotions. In this account of the way in which we understand music, Laird Addis explains how sounds can have such profound effects on those listening to them. Building on the idea, first articulated by Susanne Langer, that passages of music symbolize emotions and other conscious states, Addis advances an entirely new account of the nature of this representation. He maintains that the unique bond joining music and feelings is based on a previously unnoticed affinity between consciousness and sound. He also provides an extended discussion of Freud's theory of dream symbolism to show how unconscious awareness plays a critical role in our experience of music
