Sexual love and Western morality; a philosophical anthology by Donald Phillip Verene( Book )
7 editions published between 1972 and 1999 in English and held by 467 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Questions surrounding the issues of sex and love are fundamental to an understanding of human affairs and have been crucial in the development of Western morality. Typically, sex is discussed in medical, social scientific, or psychoanalytic terms. Little attention has been given to sex as a philosophic and ethical problem. The sexual act can be seen both as the constant procreative feature of human existence and as a basic form of love. Considered as a form of love, sex is clearly involved in the total set of ethical relationships that exists between persons and is therefore ethically significant." "This volume contains a classical, intellectually sound set of philosophical selections on sexuality and sexual love. It is historically ordered using selections from the major figures in Western thought from Plato to the present in order to show the derivation of our current Western attitudes toward this topic. In the thought of these philosophers lie the origins our contemporary views of sex. This book presents a broad picture of some of what has been thought about and sexual morality over the ages. Consideration of the issues and ideas raised in this book is necessary to an understanding of contemporary arguments that assume much of this history, and often assume it quite selectively. The power of this collection of writings is in its simplicity and its imagination - the fundamental thoughts against which any view of sexual love must be formed are obtained in this book"--BOOK JACKET
The art of humane education by Donald Phillip Verene( Book )
4 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 444 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In The art of humane education, Donald Phillip Verene presents a new statement of the classical and humanist ideals that he believes should guide education in the liberal arts and sciences. These ideals are lost, he contends, in the corporate atmosphere of the contemporary university, with its emphasis on administration, faculty careerism, and student performance. Verene addresses questions of how and what to teach and offers practical suggestions for the conduct of class sessions, the relationship between teacher and student, the interpretation of texts, and the meaning and use of a canon of great books
Philosophy and the return to self-knowledge by Donald Phillip Verene( Book )
5 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 434 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book contends that both Anglo-American analytic philosophy and Continental philosophy have lost their vitality, and it offers an alternative in their place. Donald Phillip Verene advocates a renewal of contemporary philosophy through a return to its origins in Socratic humanism and to the notions of civil wisdom, eloquence, and prudence as guides to human action. Focusing in particular on the traditions of some of the late Greeks and the Romans, Renaissance humanism, and the thought of Giambattista Vico, this book's concern is to revive the ancient Delphic injunction "know thyself," an idea of civil wisdom that Verene finds has been missing since Descartes. The author recovers the meaning of the vital relations that poetry, myth, and rhetoric had with philosophy in thinkers like Cicero, Quintilian, Isocrates, Pico, Vives, and Vico. He arrives at a conception of philosophy as a form of memory that requires both rhetoric and poetry to accomplish self-knowledge

A study of Vico's autobiography, this volume places the work within the development of the genre. The author argues that Vico made the telling of his own life an application of his philosophy on human history and considers it in relation to Augustine's "Confessions" and Descartes' "Discourse."

Speculative philosophy by Donald Phillip Verene( Book )
4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 159 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this original and illuminating work, the reader is invited to approach philosophy as an activity that can instruct, delight, and move. On this view, philosophy can be seen as a key to human education, a mastery of humane letters, and a part of the repulic of the liberal arts. Embracing this approach to philosophy, Verene argues, involves moving beyond modern philosophy's analytical encounter with experience, one that emphasizes argument and criticism at the expense of the Socratic search for self-knowledge. Relying on insights from Vico and Hegel, Verene introduces a new sense of reason, one that sees the True as the whole and that connects reason to the ancient sense of speculation. Reflection and criticism are given their due, but the reorientation of philosophy toward the speculative grasp of the whole of things allows memory, imagination, and dialectical ingenuity to take on philosophical form. In the end, this work show how speculation, symbolic form, metaphor, poetry, and rhetoric are natural parts of philosophical thinking
