Routledge philosophy guidebook to Hegel and the Phenomenology of spirit by Robert Stern( Book )

23 editions published between 1984 and 2013 in English and Chinese and held by 485 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"While alerting students to the wide range of controversies regarding almost any topic in Hegel's complex masterpiece, Stern charts a clear and interesting course through Hegel's text, highlighting important methodological and thematic continuities universal, particular, and individual aspects. Stern's interpretation is distinctive, and yet accessible, useful, and stimulating for students and professionals alike. He quotes and clarifies a good selection of passages which would otherwise puzzle students. His bibliography provides useful references for both beginning and advanced students."--Jacket
Transcendental arguments and scepticism : answering the question of justification by Robert Stern( Book )

14 editions published between 2000 and 2006 in English and held by 375 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Robert Stern investigates how scepticism can be countered by using transcendental arguments concerning the necessary conditions for the possibility of experience, language, or thought. He shows that the most damaging sceptical questions concern neither the certainty of our beliefs, nor the reliability of our belief-forming methods, but rather whether we can justify our beliefs in the light of our doxastic norms. He concludes that although transcendental arguments cannot be used to resolve the first two issues, they can help to address the issue of normative justification as raised by our belief in the existence of the external world, causal necessity, and other minds. Stern then reassesses transcendental arguments of the sort proposed by Kant in the Refutation of Idealism and the Second Analogy, by Hegel in his treatment of perception in the Phenomenology, and by Strawson in Individuals. Readable, well informed, and original, Stern's discussion will provide a positive stimulus for further discussion of the philosophical and interpretative issues raised by this influential approach to the problem of scepticism."--Jacket

Understanding moral obligation : Kant, Hegel, Kierkegaard by Robert Stern( Book )

16 editions published between 2011 and 2015 in English and held by 348 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In many histories of modern ethics, Kant is supposed to have ushered in an anti-realist or constructivist turn by holding that unless we ourselves 'author' or lay down moral norms and values for ourselves, our autonomy as agents will be threatened. In this book, Robert Stern challenges the cogency of this 'argument from autonomy', and claims that Kant never subscribed to it. Rather, it is not value realism but the apparent obligatoriness of morality that really poses a challenge to our autonomy: how can this be accounted for without taking away our freedom? The debate the book focuses on therefore concerns whether this obligatoriness should be located in ourselves (Kant), in others (Hegel) or in God (Kierkegaard). Stern traces the historical dialectic that drove the development of these respective theories, and clearly and sympathetically considers their merits and disadvantages; he concludes by arguing that the choice between them remains open"

Pragmatism, Kant, and transcendental philosophy by Robert Stern( Book )

7 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Philosophers working within the pragmatist tradition have pictured their relation to Kant and Kantianism in very diverse terms: some have presented their work as an appropriation and development of Kantian ideas, some have argued that pragmatism is an approach in complete opposition to Kant. This collection investigates the relationship between pragmatism, Kant, and current Kantian approaches to transcendental arguments in a detailed and original way. Chapters highlight pragmatist aspects of Kant’s thought and trace the influence of Kant on the work of pragmatists and neo-pragmatists, engaging with the work of Peirce, James, Lewis, Sellars, Rorty, and Brandom, among others. They also consider to what extent contemporary approaches to transcendental arguments are compatible with a pragmatist standpoint. The book includes contributions from renowned authors working on Kant, pragmatism and contemporary Kantian approaches to philosophy, and provides an authoritative and original perspective on the relationship between pragmatism and Kantianism"--Publisher's website
Eastern philosophy( Visual )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The final part of the Western philosophy series. This program covers the Industrial Revolution and Pragmatism. The Industrial Revolution had a deep impact on the direction and questions posed by western philosophy. Technological advancements prompted questions about the role of religion and for the first time, attempts were made to explain the human evolution of western civilization and history. Thinkers including Arthur Schopenhauer, Friedrich Nietzsche, and Jean-Paul Sartre began to question the human condition. Philosophy tried to reconcile the mechanistic laws of the universe with human freedom of will and action in a world that was beginning to be perceived as godless. Philosophical debate shifted from whether the eternal world exists, but rather, to how we interpret it. The language we use in everyday life became a focus for the Pragmatists and Ludwig Wittgenstein
