Historical dictionary of Hegelian philosophy by John W Burbidge( Book )

11 editions published between 2000 and 2008 in English and held by 459 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This second edition of Historical Dictionary of Hegelian Philosophy covers all aspects of Hegel's thought, in particular his technical vocabulary, through a chronology, an introductory essay, a glossary of German terms, a bibliography, and more than 500 cross-referenced dictionary entries. It also discusses Hegel's students and colleagues, as well as key figures who either adopted (and adapted) his thought or attempted to explicate it for later generations."--book jacket
The God within : Kant, Schelling, and historicity by Emil L Fackenheim( Book )

11 editions published between 1996 and 1998 in English and held by 380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For nineteenth-century thinkers, the central problem of religious consciousness in the modern West was the tension between prevailing concepts of individual autonomy and the traditional Judaeo-Christian claim for divine revelation. The God Within brings together ten of Professor Emil Fackenheim's essays on the German Idealists who struggled to resolve this tension." "All the essays gathered here are concerned with the radical singularity of history and existence on the one hand and the demands of philosophical truth on the other. They are informed by Professor Fackenheim's engagement with the profound philosophical challenges of our day - particularly his efforts, as a Jewish theologian, to confront the horrors of the Holocaust. We see, through Fackenheim's exposition, how these thinkers sought to come to terms with the presence of radical evil, a problem whose modern relevance is explored in this volume's epilogue, the 1988 essay 'Holocaust and Weltanschauung: Philosophical Reflections on Why They Did It.'"--Jacket

Real process : how logic and chemistry combine in Hegel's Philosophy of nature by John W Burbidge( Book )

7 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hegel's Philosophy of Nature was for a long time regarded as an outdated historical curiosity. Yet if systematic completeness is given up, the value of Hegelian arguments and of Hegelian logic generally becomes uncertain. In this book, John Burbidge reveals the abiding significance of the Philosophy of Nature as the intermediate movement in Hegel's system
Hegel's systematic contingency by John W Burbidge( Book )

13 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When Hegel says that historical development is stimulated and maintained by the human passions, he is placing contingency at the heart of his understanding of the world. Indeed, a careful analysis of his discussion of Actuality shows that contingency is absolutely necessary. From this perspective, one discovers in his Phenomenology of Spirit an extended description of the way confident expectations are confounded by experience." "In Hegel's Systematic Contingency John Burbidge shows how this affects the systematic structure of the Science of Logic and its relation to the Philosophy of Nature (chemistry and biology) and the Philosophy of Spirit (psychology and history). He explores what this understanding of Hegel's thought would involve if applied to some developments of modern science."--Jacket

Animals and ethics : an overview of the philosophical debate by Angus Taylor( Book )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Can animals be regarded as part of the moral community? To what extent, if at all, do they have moral rights? Are we wrong to eat them, hunt them, or use them for scientific research? Can animal liberation be squared with the environmental movement? Angus Taylor traces the background of these debates from Aristotle to Darwin and sets out the views of numerous contemporary philosophers - including Peter Singer, Tom Regan, Mary Anne Warren, J. Baird Callicott, and Marsha Nussbaum - with ethical theories ranging from utilitarianism to eco-feminism."--Jacket

Cause for thought : an essay in metaphysics by John W Burbidge( Book )

5 editions published in 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Does the fact that everything has a cause imply that all events are causally determined? Drawing on discussions from the history of philosophy, John Burbidge's Cause for Thought captures the diverse dynamics found in physics, chemistry, biology, animal psychology, and rational action. At each level, forms of activity emerge that cannot be reduced to the functioning of simpler, more elementary components."--Back cover
