"This reference provides a guide to current scholarship on the perennial problem of free will - perhaps the most hotly and voluminously debated of all philosophical problems. While reference is made throughout to the contributions of major thinkers of the past, the emphasis is on recent research. The essays, all previously unpublished, combine the work of established scholars with younger thinkers who are beginning to make significant contributions. Taken as a whole, the Handbook provides a roadmap to the state of the art thinking on this topic."--BOOK JACKET

Through the moral maze : searching for absolute values in a pluralistic world by Robert Kane( Book )

16 editions published between 1994 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 528 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The erosion of shared beliefs about right and wrong; the rift between public and private morality; debates about objective standards of value in education; the uncertain fate of religion; and rival answers to the question, "Why be moral?"--These are some of the tensions present in our increasingly multicultural society. Through the Moral Maze is written for those who are troubled by conflicting points of view on moral and spiritual matters. In the presence of such conflicts, many people wonder about the truth of their own beliefs and ask what values can survive modern challenges to their ethical aspirations. Robert Kane argues that the search for absolute value is a fundamental human quest that need not be abandoned, provided we are willing to think in new ways. His book draws upon the wisdom of the past embodied in our philosophical and religious traditions. But the author insists that if this wisdom is to survive in a world of conflicting cultures, we must face and strive to tame troubling contradictions. Through the Moral Maze takes on a broad range of issues in social ethics, politics, education, and religion. It addresses current controversies about environmentalism, feminism, multiculturalism, and moral education. But above all, it does not shun the fundamental questions about value and the meaning of life that lie behind these controversies
A contemporary introduction to free will by Robert Kane( Book )

16 editions published in 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 499 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A Contemporary Introduction to Free Will provides an extensive and overview of all the views on this central problem of philosophy. Opening with a concise introduction to the history of the problem of freewill--and its place in the history of philosophy--the book then turns to contemporary debates and theories about free will, determinism, and related subjects like moral responsibility, coercion, compulsion, autonomy, agency, rationality, freedom, and more. Classical compatibilist and new compatibilist theories of free will are considered along with the latest incompatibilist or libertarian theories and the most recent skeptical challenges to free will. Separate chapters are devoted to the relation of free will to moral responsibility and ethics; to modern science; and to religious questions about predestination, divine foreknowledge, and human freedom. Numerous down-to-earth examples and challenging thought experiments enliven the text

Ethics and the quest for wisdom by Robert Kane( Book )

14 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and held by 291 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Modernity has challenged the ancient ideal of a universal quest for wisdom, and today's world of conflicting cultures and values has raised further doubts regarding the possibility of objective ethical standards. Robert Kane refocuses the debate on the philosophical quest for wisdom, and argues that ethical principles about right action and the good life can be seen to emerge from that very quest itself. His book contends that the search for wisdom involves a persistent striving to overcome narrowness of vision that comes from the inevitable limitations of finite points of view. When applied to questions of value and the good life, this striving has ethical implications about the way we should treat ourselves and others. This study argues for the merits of this central thesis against alternative theories in contemporary normative ethics, and discusses its practical applications for social ethics, political philosophy, law and moral education"--

The quest for meaning : values, ethics, and the modern experience by Robert Kane( Recording )

9 editions published between 1998 and 2015 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Is there an ethics that we can all agree on without stifling pluralism and freedom? What would such an ethics look like? Most important, how should you, as a thoughtful person, find your way among the moral puzzles of the modern world and its cacophony of voices and opinions? These are just some of the engaging and perplexing questions you'll tackle as you join Professor Kane for this thought-provoking, 24-lecture examination of the problems surrounding ethics in the modern world.The contemporary issues you'll consider include conflicts between public and private morality, the degree to which the law should enforce morality, the teaching of values in the schools, the role of religion in public life, the limits of liberty and privacy, individualism versus community, and the loss of shared values and the resulting discontent about politics and public discourse. Professor Kane's approach is as searching and comprehensive as any you could ask for. His lectures range over a rich array of literary, religious, and philosophical sources representing thousands of years of civilization. Most intriguingly, they spur you to ponder the possibility of recovering the ancient quest for wisdom and virtue in a way that respects the insights of modern thought and the achievements of modern pluralism. Whatever your thinking on such questions, whatever your own personal question for true meaning, you can rest assured that it will be immeasurably enriched by the harvest of reflection you glean from these compelling lectures
