"The Green Halo is a readable introduction to the vast field of contemporary ecological thought.

Jan Patočka : philosophy and selected writings by Erazim V Kohák( Book )

14 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 366 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the most important Central European philosophers of this century, Jan Patočka (1907-77) was a student and heir of Masaryk, Husserl, and Heidegger as well as a philosopher and historian of ideas in his own right. Patočka, who was forced to retire prematurely from Charles University in Prague for his political convictions, died of a brain hemorrhage while under Czech police interrogation for having signed the human rights manifesto Charta 77. Although many of his works are available in French and German, in this volume Erazim Kohák has translated Patočka's central philosophical texts into English for the first time. As a student and personal friend of Husserl, Patočka was keenly aware of the focal role of reason in the constitution of experienced reality. Simultaneously, as a student of Heidegger, he was no less aware of the irreducible autonomy of that reality. This double recognition led Patočka on a lifelong philosophical quest for a synthesis that would bridge modernity's split between the Enlightenment and romanticism. For the philosophical reader, Patočka's perceptive writings provide the most helpful key to philosophical reader, Patočka's perceptive writings provide the most helpful key to understanding the basic modern dialogue acted out by Husserl and Heidegger. Yet Patočka, widely respected for his writings on culture and the arts as well as for his studies of J. A. Comenius and the history of science, offers much more: a comprehensive attempt to cme to terms with our intellectual heritage and our divided present. Kohák, as well as translating the writings, provides a comprehensive introduction, covering the full scope of Patočka's thought, and a compelete bibliography of his writings. The result is an intellectually rich volume equally well suited as an introduction to Patočka, an advanced study in phenomenology, and a historical insight into philosophy behind the Iron Curtain since 1938. -- from back cover
Masaryk on Marx; an abridged edition of T.G. Masaryk, the social question: philosophical and sociological foundations of Marxism by T. G Masaryk( Book )

8 editions published in 1972 in English and held by 330 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Freedom and nature : the voluntary and involuntary by Paul Ricœur( Book )

12 editions published between 1966 and 2007 in English and held by 175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Freedom and Nature, the first part of Ricoeur's Philosophy of the Will, is an eidetics, carried out within carefully imposed phenomenological brackets. It seeks to deal with the essential structure of man's being-in-the-world, and so it suspends the distorting dimensions of existence, the bondage of passion, and the vision of innocence to which Ricoeur returns in his later writings. The result is a conception of man as an incarnate Cogito, which can make the polar unity of subject and object intelligible and provide a basic continuity for the various aspects of inquiry into man's being-in-the-world. --From publisher's description

The victors and the vanquished by Heda Kovály( Book )

18 editions published between 1968 and 1973 in 3 languages and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Heda Margolius Kovaly's steady gaze at the lives caught up in Czechoslovakia's tragic fate under the Nazis and then during the Stalin era illuminates the chaotic life of a nation. Kovaly was deported to concentration camps, escaped from a death march, nearly starved in the postwar years, only to be shattered by her husband's conviction (in the infamous 1952 Slansky trial) and his execution. Resonant with lyricism, this gripping memoir is uplifting even in the midst of horror."--BOOK JACKET
