Placing aesthetics : reflections on the philosophic tradition by Robert E Wood( )

11 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 2,315 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Examining select high points in the speculative tradition from Plato and Aristotle through the Middle Ages and German tradition to Dewey and Heidegger, Placing Aesthetics seeks to locate the aesthetic concern within the larger framework of each thinker''s philosophy. In Professor Robert Wood''s study, aesthetics is not peripheral but rather central to the speculative tradition and to human existence as such. In Dewey''s terms, aesthetics is "experience in its integrity." Its personal ground is in "the heart," which is the dispositional ground formed by genetic, cultural, and personal histo

Hegel's introduction to the System : encyclopaedia phenomenology and psychology by Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel( )

11 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 989 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As an introduction to his own notoriously complex and challenging philosophy, Hegel recommended the sections on phenomenology and psychology from the Philosophy of Spirit, the third part of his Encyclopaedia of the Philosophic Sciences. These offered the best introduction to his philosophic system ... [This book] makes it possible for the modern reader to approach the philosopher's work as he himself sugggested. The book includes a fresh translation of "Phenomenology" and "Psychology," an extensive section-by-section commentary, and a sketch of the system to which this work is an introduction."--Résumé de l'éditeur

The beautiful, the true, & the good : studies in the history of thought by Robert E Wood( )

9 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 942 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How do we understand the notions of the beautiful, the true, and the good, and how do they help us to know, to understand? Philosopher Robert E. Wood considers appeal respectively to the heart, to the intellect, and to the will. In our minds, their interplay beckons each of us to assimilate one's past, and look forward towards further endeavours. They also set up what Wood calls a "dialogical imperative" to speak from where we stand and to stand in place of the Other, the person facing us, as well. The order follows Plato's claim that the love of Beauty is the light of the Good that grounds our pursuit of the True. Human experience, according to Wood, has a "magnetically bipolar" character, rooted in organically based desires. Yet that experience is aimed, through the all-encompassing notion of Being, at the absolute totality of what is. The notion of Being affords a distance that grounds both understanding and choice. Culture enters in as well. Its developments, initially empty in relation to the totality, come to occupy the space of meaning between the here-and-now and the totality. Each human being's genetic endowments interplay with one's cultural shaping.0Taking them up, each individual sets up a unique field of attractions and repulsions belonging to the heart as one's radically individual center. Wood proceeds from this phenomenological basis to consider key thinkers from Heraclitus and Parmenides, to Heidegger, Buber, and Marcel. He seeks, in this collection of essays from the past forty years, to develop a "fusion of horizons" with them, as part of an on-going broader philosophical dialogue that constitutes the history of thought, now and to come
Martin Buber's ontology; an analysis of I and thou by Robert E Wood( Book )

13 editions published between 1969 and 1986 in English and German and held by 851 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At the turn of the century Martin Buber arrived on the philosophic scene ... The path to his maturity was one long struggle with the problem of unity- in particular with the problem of the unity of spirit and life; and he saw the problem itself to be rooted in the supposition of the primacy of the subject-object relation, with subjects "over here," objects "over there," and their relation a matter of subjects "taking in" objects or, alternatively, constituting them. But Buber moved into a position which undercuts the subject-object dichotomy and initiates a second "Copernican revolution" in philosophical thought

Being and the cosmos : from seeing to indwelling by Robert E Wood( )

5 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Robert Wood's aim in Being and the Cosmos is to reestablish a speculative view of the cosmos that goes back to the ancient Greeks and that corresponds to the holism of contemporary physics. There are two sets of problems in contemporary thought that militate against any such attempt. Most widespread is scientific reductionism in biology and neuroscience that explains awareness in terms of the mechanisms that underlie it. The second is the widespread attack in philosophy itself on speculative holism by deconstruction and anti-foundationalism
Nature, artforms, and the world around us : an introduction to the regions of aesthetic experience by Robert E Wood( )

13 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and German and held by 198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book provides a comprehensive view of the aesthetic realm, placing the various major artforms within the setting of nature and the built environment as they arise within the field of experience. Each chapter displays the regional ontology of the form considered: the comprehensive set of eidetic features that limn the space of the art. It draws upon artists' statements, writings of key figures in the history of philosophy--including Plato, Hegel, Dewey, and Heidegger--and writings from various commentators on art. This volume is unique in its systematic and phenomenological approach, and in how it addresses aesthetics writ large

Aesthetics by Dietrich Von Hildebrand( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dietrich von Hildebrand understood the centrality of beauty not merely to art but to philosophy, theology, and ethics. In his ambitious and comprehensive Aesthetics, now translated into English for the first time, Hildebrand rehabilitates the concept of beauty as an objective rather and purely subjective phenomenon. His systematic account renews the Classical and Christian vision of beauty as a reliable mode of perception that leads humanity toward the true, the good, and ultimately the divine -- Provided by the publisher
