Manifesto of a passionate moderate : unfashionable essays by Susan Haack ( Book )
13 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and held by 738 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Forthright and wryly humorous, philosopher Susan Haack deploys her analytic skills on some of the most highly charged cultural and social debates of recent years. Relativism, multiculturalism, feminism, affirmative action, pragmatisms old and new, science, literature, the future of the academy and of philosophy itself - all come under her keen scrutiny in Manifesto of a Passionate Moderate. Haack's goal in these essays is to get beyond fads, fashions, obfuscations, and false dichotomies to the central and most essential questions - whether there is such a thing as truth, whether honest inquiry is possible or desirable, whether there is a real difference between knowledge and propaganda. There is, Haack argues; but serious inquiry is difficult and demanding, evidence can be ambiguous or misleading, and what passes for truth is sometimes false

Putting philosophy to work : inquiry and its place in culture : essays on science, religion, law, literature, and life by Susan Haack ( Book )
8 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in English and held by 357 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This wide-ranging collection of Susan Haack's new and recent essays offers applied philosophy in a new key and a fresh voice - subtle, penetrating analyses of vital issues about science, society, religion, law, literature, even about what makes a life meaningful." "Whether she is telling the "sad, sleazy saga" of a drug company's efforts to suppress the unfavorable results of a clinical trial it had funded, disentangling the many senses of "coherent," or reflecting on the growth of intellectual character, Haack writes with the clarity, verve, and wit her readers have come to expect."--Jacket

Putting philosophy to work : inquiry and its place in culture by Susan Haack ( Book )
4 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This engaging and wide-ranging collection of essays is informed and unified by the conviction that philosophy can, and should, engage with real-world issues. Susan Haack's keen analytical skills and well-chosen illustrations illuminate a diverse range of cultural questions; and her direct style and wry sense of humor make complex ideas and subtle distinctions accessible to serious readers whatever their discipline or particular interests. Putting Philosophy to Work will appeal not only to philosophers but also to thoughtful scientists, economists, legal thinkers, historians, literary scholars, and humanists. This new, expanded second edition includes several previously unpublished essays: a devastating critique of Karl Popper's highly (and dangerously) influential philosophy of science; a searching and thought-provoking analysis of scientism; and a groundbreaking paper on "academic ethics in a preposterous environment" that every professor, and would-be professor, should read
