Power, love and evil : contribution to a philosophy of the damaged by Wayne Cristaudo( )

10 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1,488 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Love and evil are real - they are substances or force fields which contain us as constituent parts. Of all the powers of life they are the two most pregnant with meaning, hence the most generative of what is specifically human. Love and evil stand in the closest relationship to each other: evil is both what destroys love and what forces more love out of us; it is, as Augustine astutely grasped, privative (requiring something to negate) but it is also born out of misdirected love, Breaking with naive realist and post-modern dogmas about the nature of the real, this book provides the basis for a philosophy of generative action as it draws upon examples from philosophy, literature, religion and popular culture. While this book has a sympathetic ear for ancient and traditional narratives about the meaning of life, it offers a philosophy appropriate for our times and our crises. It is particularly directed at readers Who are seeking for new ways to think about our world and self-making, and who are as dissatisfied with post-Nietzschean and post-Marxian 20th century social theory as they are by more traditional philosophical and naturalistic accounts of human being."--Jacket
Religion, redemption and revolution : the new speech thinking of Franz Rosenzweig and Eugen Rosenstock-Huessy by Wayne Cristaudo( )

13 editions published between 2000 and 2017 in English and held by 1,274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Religion, Redemption, and Revolution closely examines the intertwined intellectual development of one of the most important Jewish thinkers of the twentieth century, Franz Rosenzweig, and his friend and teacher, Christian sociologist Eugen Rosenstock-Huessy. The first major English work on Rosenstock-Huessy, it also provides a significant reinterpretation of Rosenzweig's writings based on the thinkers' shared insights - including their critique of modern Western philosophy, and their novel conception of speech
Love in the religions of the world by Gregory Kaplan( )

8 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 1,013 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The study of comparative religion is no longer a matter merely for those interested in religion - it is a matter of concern for everybody. For irrespective of whether one believes in God, religion is a major characteristic of identity. And in the post 9.11 world, every educated person is aware of how important it is to understand what others believe. This collection of essays by international scholars emerged from an intense and powerful dialogue at the University of Hong Kong about love in the major religions of the world. Eschewing the comforting, but ultimately erroneous and dangerous idea that all religions believe more or less the same thing, each essay examines the role and nature of love in a major religion of the world. It is an invaluable guide for students, teachers and the general reader wanting to cut through the morass of doctrinal differences and emphases in the worldâs religions. It also makes an important contribution to the urgent issue of dialogue amongst faiths and cultures.<p><p>
The cross and the star : the post-Nietzschean Christian and Jewish thought of Eugen Rosenstock-Huessy and Franz Rosenzweig by Wayne Cristaudo( )

10 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in English and held by 991 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book brings to publication three essays by Rosenstock-Huessy on Nietzsche, and a translation of a chapter from his 'Sociology', clarifying the post-Nietzschean approach of the 'new thinking'
Revolutions : finished and unfinished, from primal to final by Paul Caringella( )

13 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in English and held by 596 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Revolutions: Finished and Unfinished, From Primal to Final is an important philosophical contribution to the study of revolution. It not only makes new contributions to the study of particular revolutions, but to developing a philosophy of revolution itself. Many of the contributors have been inspired by the philosophical approaches of Eric Voegelin or Eugen Rosenstock-Huessy, and the tension between these two social philosophies adds to the philosophical uniqueness and richness of the work.
A philosophical history of love by Wayne Cristaudo( Book )

11 editions published between 2012 and 2017 in English and held by 311 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fusing philosophy, literature, theology, psychology, and anthropology, the volume reviews major thinkers in the field, from Plato and Freud, to Pierce, Shakespeare, and Flaubert. Cristaudo explores the major themes of love of the Church, romantic love and the return of the feminine, the conflict between familial and romantic love, love in a meaningless world and the love of evil, and the evolutionary idea of love. With Cristaudo, the reader embarks on a journey not just through time, but also through the different kinds, origins, and spirits of love."--Pub. desc

This great beast : progress and the modern state by Robert Catley( Book )

9 editions published between 1997 and 2018 in English and held by 161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1997, this volume follows Catley and Cristaudo as they defend Western Civilization against all comers: against the rest of the world, especially the Third World, and against its own internal irritants: 'the scribblings of the intelligentsia' by idealist philosophers, feminists, greens, post-moderns, multiculturalists, Orientalists, anti-nationalists, socialists and Keynesians, most of them tenured academics in the arts and social sciences. As academic political scientists themselves they have done time in a number of the ideological prisons they attack, and they write about those states of mind with experienced cynicism . As in Paradise Lost, the devil gets all the best tunes. The identification of civilization's enemies is wildly, sometimes hilariously, politically incorrect
Great ideas in the Western literary canon by Wayne Cristaudo( Book )

7 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 113 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Order and revolt : debating the principles of Eastern and Western social thought( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These original essays debate two ways of theorizing social life. One way is the integrative or holistic model of thought typified in the writings of Confucius. The other, the revolutionary tradition, is suspicious of holism and harmony as principles of social thought because harmony is seen as something that can genuinely occur only when a society has rectified deeply ingrained injustice. This volume evaluates the alternative priorities of order and revolt, harmony and spontaneity, in social life

St. Augustine : his relevance and legacy by Wayne Cristaudo( Book )

5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this volume we have brought together essays, which discuss Augustine's core ideas in a context that could hardly be more different than when he wrote, and essays which show his enduring philosophical and theological impact and relevance. The planetary scope of that extent can be gauged by inclusion of essays which discuss his ideas in relationship to the Australian poet Francis Webb, to the Mexican muralist Jose Orozco, to the reworking of his ideas by the Austrian emigre political scientist, Eric Voegelin, to the French philosopher Jean-Luc Marion, and to the extremely interesting and highly personalized account of how (deformed) versions of his ideas formed the presumptions for Dixon Wong, a Hong Kong scholar working on Japanese business. These papers not only reflect the geographical reach of Augustine's relevance, but a social and existential scope that spans the arts, politics, philosophy, and business--all from a deep religious faith. --Book Jacket
In the cross of reality by Eugen Rosenstock-Huessy( )

7 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book makes the first volume of Eugen Rosenstock-Huessy's Soziologie available in English for the first time since its 1956 publication in German. Rosenstock-Huessy argues that social philosophy has favored abstract and spatially contrived categories of social organization over temporal processes. This preference for space-thinking has diverted us from recognizing the power of speech and its relationship to living on the front lines of life. Taking speech and the social responsibilities and reciprocities that accompany naming as the key to social reality, In the Cross of Reality provides a sociological exploration of "play" spaces as the basis for reflexivity. It also explores the spaces of activity and their correlation in war and peace to the spheres of "serious life." If we are to survive and flourish, different qualities and reciprocal relationships must be cultivated so that we can deal with different fronts of life. Arguing that modern intellectuals and their obsession with space have created a dangerously false choice between mechanical and aesthetic salvation, Rosenstock-Huessy clears a path so that we better appreciate our relationship between past and future in founding and in partitioning time. --
Idolizing the idea : a critical history of modern philosophy by Wayne Cristaudo( Book )

7 editions published between 2019 and 2020 in English and Undetermined and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ever since Plato made the case for the primacy of ideas over names, philosophy has tended to elevate the primacy of its ideas over the more common understanding and insights that are circulated in the names drawn upon by the community. Commencing with a critique of Plato's original philosophical decision, Cristaudo takes up the argument put forward by Thomas Reid that modern philosophy has generally continued along the 'way of ideas' to its own detriment. His argument identifies the major paradigmatic developments in modern philosophy commencing from the new metaphysics pioneered by Descartes up until the analytic tradition and the anti-domination philosophies which now dominate social and political thought. Along the way he argues that the paradigmatic shifts and break-downs that have occurred in modern philosophy are due to being beholden to an inadequate sovereign idea, or small cluster of ideas, which contribute to the occlusion of important philosophical questions. In addition to chapters on Descartes, and the analytic tradition and anti-domination philosophies, his critical history of modern philosophy explores the core ideas of Locke, Berkeley, Malebranche, Locke, Hume, Reid, Kant, Fichte, Hegel, Schelling, Marx, Kierkegaard, Schopenhauer, Nietzsche, Husserl and Heidegger. The common thread uniting these disparate philosophies is what Cristaudo calls 'ideaism' (sic.). Rather than expanding our reasoning capacity, 'ideaism' contributes to philosophers imposing dictatorial principles or models that ultimately occlude and distort our understanding of our participative role within reality. Drawing upon thinkers such as Pascal, Vico, Hamann, Herder, Franz Rosenzweig, Martin Buber and Eugen Rosensock-Huessy Cristaudo advances his argument by drawing upon the importance of encounter, dialogue, and a more philosophical anthropological and open approach to philosophy"--
From faith in reason to reason in faith : transformations in philosophical theology from the eighteenth to twentieth centuries( Book )

3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"If the philosophers of the Enlightenment had hoped to establish, once and for all, that reason is the primary source of human orientation, twentieth century philosophy has demonstrated all too clearly that reason is far from having clear boundaries. In this respect, Immanuel Kant's contemporaries and critics, Johann Georg Hamann and Friedrich Heinrich Jacobi, look surprisingly modern. Faith is now increasingly recognized as intrinsic to social identity and thus no more capable of taking a permanently subordinate role to reason--whatever that may be--than reason is capable of an existence free from social embodiment. This collection of thirteen essays focuses upon major philosophical and theological debates from the past three hundred years. Written by leading international scholars, this remarkable text takes the reader through major transitions in the modern understanding of faith and reason. It thus provides an invaluable guide to the history of modern philosophical theology whilst informing readers why the relationship between faith and reason remains an issue of major social and philosophical importance."--Publisher's website
Planetary responsibilities : an ethics of timing by Jan Otto Kroesen( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

European national identities : elements, transitions, conflicts by Roland Vogt( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Making sense of the perplexing diversity of Europe is a challenging task. How compatible are national identities in Europe? What makes Europe European? What do Europeans have in common?European National Identities explores the diversity of European states, nations, and peoples. In doing so, the editors focus on the origins and elements of different national identities in Europe and different themes of national self-understanding. Each chapter contributes a unique view of national identities gravitating around myth, historical experiences and traumas, values, ethnic and linguistic differences, and religious fault lines. This work grounds European national identities within cultural, historical, and political dynamics, which makes the work approachable for many readers, including historians, sociologists, and political scientists. In addition, the editors illustrate that national identities continue to be a source of contention and a challenge to political developments, the demands of immigrants and minorities, and the dynamics of European integration. This book draws particular attention to identity shifts and conflicts within individual European countries."--Provided by publisher
