Three apodeictic dialogues : examples of conceptual mirrors in religion, psychology, and social organization by Gregory V Loewen( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The concept of certainty may be approached contextually through the use of dialogue. In three creative dialogues involving characters that are often seen as representing each other's antipodes -- 'a theist' and an 'atheist, ' a 'therapist' and 'the rapist, ' and two multi-voiced group personae, 'casual ties' and 'casualties' -- this text negotiates the overlapping aspects of consciousness that each must have in its alter. Coming to know the other in oneself while at the same time othering ourselves is one process of knowing more fully the truth of the human condition. The dialogues are bookended by a meditative and philosophical introduction concerning human finitude and the role of the otherness of death, and a scholarly conclusion about the vicissitudes within the use of human language. Drawing on sources from anthropology, archaeology, socio-linguistics, and critical philosophy, and using both conversation and academic exposition, Three Apodeictic Dialogues offers a unique perspective on some of the disconcerting questions that animate belief, desire, and communication."--Back cover
Sacred science : ritual and miracle in modern medicine by Gregory V Loewen( Book )

6 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sacred Science' is an analysis of post-war discourses concerning health and illness. These discourses are an attempt to grasp the meaning of health in our modern human condition, and as such they provide both new insights into the genealogy of conceptualizations of both health and illness, but also serve as a viable hermeneutic summary of many important textual moments in the recent history of health studies, including Foucault, Gadamer, Illich, Sontag, and others. This book is the result of a phenomenological disquisition of the ideas employed by health scholars and philosophers, and its import rests both on its uniqueness in the relevant fields and its new ideas, including 'indefinitude', 'deontic facticity', and illness as the experience of the simultaneous `inexistence' of both life and death

The Role of Art in the Construction of Personal Identity : the Role of Art in the Construction of Personal Identity by Gregory V Loewen( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Loewen looks at the ways art can preserve the self as an archived project. Does art reflect personal growth and can one's view on it change over time? Why do people identify with particular works of art and not others? The pertinent question in this book is how art reflects the personal identity of its creator and how responses to works of art can divulge information about the audience as well. Art can also serve to memorialize the changes that the self goes through while living. He also argues that artistic expression provides a forum for our truest selves to become represented
