The acting person by John Paul( Book )
33 editions published between 1979 and 2007 in 5 languages and held by 922 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Originally entitled Osoba i Czyn and published in Poland in 1969, The Acting Person is the official English translation and has been thoroughly edited and revised with the collaboration of the author. The book stresses that man must ceaselessly unravel his mysteries and strive for a new and more mature expression of his nature. The author sees this expression as an emphasis on the significance of the individual living in community and on the person in the process of performing an action. The author states in his preface that he has tried to face the major issues concerning life, nature, and the existence of man directly as they present themselves to man in his struggles to survive while maintaining the dignity of a human being, but who is torn apart between his all too limited condition and his highest aspirations to set himself free. --From publisher's description
Phenomenology of life meeting the challenges of the present-day world by Anna-Teresa Tymieniecka( )

Imaginatio creatrix the pivotal force of the genesis/ontopoiesis of human life and reality by Anna-Teresa Tymieniecka( )
14 editions published between 2004 and 2011 in English and held by 560 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The fulgurating power of creative imagination - Imaginatio Creatrix - setting in motion the Human Condition within the-unity-of-everything there-is-alive is the key to the rebirth of philosophy. From as early as 1971 (see the third volume of the Analecta Husserliana series, The Phenomenological Realism of the Possible Worlds, Anna-Teresa Tymieniecka, ed.), Imaginatio Creatrix has been the leitmotif for the research work of the World Phenomenology Institute (now published in eighty-three Analecta Husserliana volumes), one that is eliciting echoes from all around. Husserl's diagnosis of a crisis in Western science and culture, the inspiration of much of postmodern phenomenology, has yielded place to a wave of scientific discovery, technological invention, and change in societal life, individual lifestyles, the arts, etc. These throw a glaring light on human creative genius and the crucial role of the imagination that gives it expression. This present collection is an instance of that expression and the response it evokes. It manifests the role of imagination in forming and interpreting our world -in-transformation in a new way and opens our eyes to marvel at the new world on the way.

Human creation between reality and illusion by Anna-Teresa Tymieniecka( )
15 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 478 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Identifying illusion with deception, we tend to oppose it to the reality of life. This collection of essay's looks at questions such as: Does not illusion open the seeming confines of factual reality into horizons of imagination which transform it? and, Does it not, like art, belong essentially to the makeup of human reality?
The enigma of good and evil the moral sentiment in literature by Anna-Teresa Tymieniecka( )
17 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 468 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Literature, which in its very gist, dwells upon disentangling in multiple perspective the peripeteia of our life-experience offers us a unique field of source-material for moral and ethical investigations. Literature brings preeminently to light the Moral Sentiment which pervades our life with others - our existence tout court
Beauty's appeal measure and excess by Anna-Teresa Tymieniecka( )
18 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 467 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Beauty fulfils human existence. As it registers in our aesthetic experience, beauty enhances nature??'s enchantment around us and our inward experience lifting our soul toward moral elevation. Carried by creative imagination (Imaginatio Creatrix), beauty participates in the moulding of the forms of the intellective constitution of the mind in tandem with praxis and seeks deeper enigmas of the real in the labyrinth of the cosmos. Yet with the evolution of human development and in technological inventions, beauty, while suffusing all modalities of experience, seems to undergo transformations and
Education in Human Creative Existential Planning by Anna-Teresa Tymieniecka( )
20 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 459 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Education is the transmission of knowledge and skill from one generation to another, and is vitally significant for the growth and unfolding of the living individual. It manifests the quintessential ability of the logos to differentiate life in self-individualization from within, and in its spread through inter-generative networks. Without reaching the evolutive phase of the human creative condition, the human being establishes a unique creative platform on which to conduct its co-existence. On this platform the progress of life is being transformed from a natural ontopoietic accomplishment into an autonomous achievement of the creative planning of the human mind. Specifically, human education focuses upon creative planning moving like a pendulum between nature and freedom. The present collection of papers focuses on the underpinnings of the creative workings of the human strategies of reason. Papers by: Anna-Teresa Tymieniecka, Zaiga Ikere, Daniela Verducci, Klymet Selvi, Andrina Tonkli-Komel, Jan Szmyd, Brian Grassom, Alon Segev, Mara Rubene, Dean Komel, Patricia Trutty-Coohill, Carmen Cozma, Piotr Mroz, Clara Mandolini, Mobeen Shahid, Semiha Akinci, Oliver W.

Virtues and passions in literature excellence, courage, engagements, wisdom, fulfilment by Anna-Teresa Tymieniecka( )
20 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 456 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Paradoxically, our human virtues that maintain our societal fabric, emerge from passional grounds/sources in individual existence. It is the Human Condition that prompts our creative strivings beyond the natural round of life toward outstanding achievements. Our full possibilities allow our singular existence: excellence of individual character, courage, engagement, and wisdom to unfold. The transformations that the virtues work with a timing of human progress, never entirely accomplished, lift us toward personal fulfilment.

Leibniz' cosmological synthesis by Anna-Teresa Tymieniecka( Book )
14 editions published in 1964 in 4 languages and held by 451 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Temporality in life as seen through literature contributions to phenomenology of life by Anna-Teresa Tymieniecka( )
18 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 442 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Temporality pervades the dynamic joint of existence, and the human being as such. As human beings unfold through ontopoiesis, each move of which punctuates the temporality of life, they, whose life experience, deliberation, planning, reflection and dreaming are permeated by temporal motivations and concerns, feel that they are engaged in the spinning of a common thread. Attributing to that involvement universal laws, constant existential validity and power, they absolutise/hypostasise its rule as a cosmic/human factor: "time". Yet today technologies are transforming the temporality of our existence by accelerating, intensifying, expanding our partaking in the world of life. Human communal and social involvement is being challenged in its personal significance to the core of our being. What happens to "time"? A basic reinvestigation of the nature of temporality is called for human creative endeavor - especially literature - may initiate it.; Having the human subject - the creator - at its center, literature is essentially engaged in temporality whether that of the mind or of the world of life through the creative process of writing, stage directing, or the reader's and viewer's reception. Out of the cross-motivations that the creative mind filters in its temporal synthesis in touch with all the perspectives of existence, there surges the deepest significance of life in humanity and culture. But, first of all, life comes to light as timing itself in its logos
Existence, historical fabulation, destiny by Anna-Teresa Tymieniecka( )
13 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 425 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Surging from the ontopoietic vital timing of life, human self-consciousness prompts the innermost desire to rise above its brute facts. Imaginatio creatrix inspires us to fabulate these facts into events and plots with personal significance attempting to delineate a life-course in life-stories within the ever-flowing stream - existence. Seeking their deep motivations, causes and concatenations, we fabulate relatively stabilized networks of interconnecting meaning - history. But to understand the meaning and sense of these networks' reconfigurations call for the purpose and telos of our endless undertaking; they remain always incomplete, carried onwards with the current of life, while fluctuating with personal experience in the play of memory. Facts and life stories, subjective desires and propensities, the circumambient world in its historical moves, creative logos and mythos, personal freedom and inward stirrings thrown in an enigmatic interplay, prompt our imperative thirst for the meaning of this course, its purpose and its fulfillment - the sense of it all. To disentangle all this animates the passions of the literary genius. The focus of this collection is to isolate the main arteries running through the intermingled forces prompting our quest to endow life with meaning.

Logos of phenomenology and phenomenology of the logos by World Congress of Phenomenology( )
13 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 413 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
During its century-long unfolding, spreading in numerous directions, Husserlian phenomenology while loosening inner articulations, has nevertheless maintained a somewhat consistent profile. As we see in this collection, the numerous conceptions and theories advanced in the various phases of reinterpretations have remained identifiable with phenomenology. What conveys this consistency in virtue of which innumerable types of inquiry-scientific, social, artistic, literary - may consider themselves phenomenological? Is it not the quintessence of the phenomenological quest, namely our seeking to reach the very foundations of reality at all its constitutive levels by pursuing its logos? Inquiring into the logos of the phenomenological quest we discover, indeed, all the main constitutive spheres of reality and of the human subject involved in it, and concurrently, the logos itself comes to light in the radiation of its force (Tymieniecka)
Islamic philosophy and occidental phenomenology on the perennial Issue of microcosm and macrocosm by Anna-Teresa Tymieniecka( )
15 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in English and held by 413 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Proposes the Microcosm and Macrocosm analogy for dialogue between Islamic Philosophy and Occidental Phenomenology. The authors of this volume revive the perennial positioning of the human condition in the play of forces within and without the human being
Phenomenology of life from the animal soul to the human mind by Anna-Teresa Tymieniecka( )
13 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 411 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The challenge presented by the recent tendencies to "naturalize" phenomenology, on the basis of the progress in biological and neurological sciences, calls for an investigation of the traditional mind-body problem. The progress in phenomenological investigation is up to answering that challenge by placing the issues at stake upon a novel platform, that is the ontopoiesis of life. The present collection of studies extends our investigation (see Analecta Husserliana vol. 93) by seeking the ontopoietic continuity of sense between the vitally and spiritually significant functions of life. From the multiple approaches stretching through "The Animal, the Human, and the Divine" (Ales Bello), there come to the fore the intellective, aesthetic, moral fruits of the creative human mind: "The In-Depth Body and the Coming About of Ego" (De Preester), "Consciousness in the Perspective of Evolution" (Fiut), "Science and the Human Phenomenon" (Zonneveld), "Specifically Human Empathy" (Adri Smalling), and others. The emphasis falls upon "The Living Soul" (Shkubulyani) as the common origin of life's sense giving functions, which in their ontopoietic unfolding become informed by the simultaneously originating human creative mind, crowned in its advance by the sacral "Spiritual Emergence" (Louchakova)

Classic issues in Islamic philosophy and theology today by Anna-Teresa Tymieniecka( )
15 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 406 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This collection of classic issues in Islamic theology and philosophy, authored by young Islamic scholars, is for Islamic and Occidental readers alike. While the questions are classic, these studies are not focused on historical matters. They proceed from the authors' personal quest, prompted by contemporary concerns as they seek to understand the old themes afresh as relevant to inherited Islamic wisdom. These studies strike us as initiating its contribution to the New Enlightenment, which emerges from the technologico-pragmatic
Transcendentalism overturned from absolute power of consciousness until the forces of cosmic architectonics by Anna-Teresa Tymieniecka( )
12 editions published between 2001 and 2011 in English and held by 405 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This collection offers a critical assessment of transcendentalism, the understanding of consciousness, absolutized as a system of a priori laws of the mind, that was advanced by Kant and Husserl. As these studies show, transcendentalism critically informed 20th Century phenomenological investigation into such issues as temporality, historicity, imagination, objectivity and subjectivity, freedom, ethical judgment, work, praxis. Advances in science have now provoked a questioning of the absolute prerogatives of consciousness. Transcendentalism is challenged by empirical reductionism. And recogni
Destiny, the inward quest, temporality and life by Anna-Teresa Tymieniecka( )
14 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 405 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
'There is no greater gift to man than to understand nothing of his fate', declares poet-philosopher Paul Valery. And yet the searching human being seeks ceaselessly to disentangle the networks of experiences, desires, inward promptings, personal ambitions, and elevated strivings which directed his/hers life-course within changing circumstances in order to discover his sense of life. Literature seeks in numerous channels of insight the dominant threads of 'the sense of life', 'the inward quest', 'the frames of experience' in reaching the inward sources of what we call 'destiny' inspired by experience and temporality which carry it on. This unusual collection reveals the deeper generative elements which form sense of life stretching between destiny and doom. They escape attention in their metamorphic transformations of the inexorable, irreversibility of time which undergoes different interpretations in the phases examining our life. Our key to life has to be ever discovered a new
Art, literature, and passions of the skies by Anna-Teresa Tymieniecka( )
13 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 395 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Flashes of lightning, resounding thunder, gloomy fog, brilliant sunshine...these are the life manifestations of the skies. The concrete visceral experiences that living under those skies stir within us are the ground for individual impulses, emotions, sentiments that in their interaction generate their own ever-changing clouds. While our intellect concentrates on the discovery of our cosmic position, on the architecture of the universe, our imagination is informed by the gloomy vapors, the glimmers of fleeting light, and the glory of the skies. Reconnoitering from the soil of human life and striving towards the infinite, the elan of imagination gets caught up in the clouds of the skies. There in that dimness, sensory receptivity, dispositions, emotions, passionate strivings, yearnings, elevations gather and propagate. From the 'Passions of the Skies' spring innermost intuitions that nourish literature and the arts
