Philosophy of religion ( Visual )
8 editions published between 2004 and 2011 in English and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This program explores three major areas of philosophical inquiry into religion: religious epistemology, or the exploration of the rational grounds for religious beliefs and in particular, the existence of God; the metaphysics of religion, which inquires into the nature of God; and theodicy, which examines the philosophical implications of the presence of evil in the world. Readings from Thomas Aquinas' Summa theologica, Moses Maimonides' Guide for the perplexed, and other essential texts are included
Modern philosophy ( Visual )
7 editions published between 2004 and 2011 in English and held by 177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"During the 16th century, a new breed of thinker arose, equal parts philosopher and scientist, that threw off the received wisdom of the past and started afresh. In this program contemporary philosophers and academicians address the major philosophical currents of that era -- and the explosive controversies surrounding them. Bacon's Novum organum, Descartes' Discours de la methode, Hobbes' Leviathan, Spinoza's Ethica and other germane works are cited."
Political philosophy ( Visual )
6 editions published between 2004 and 2008 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Who should lead the world's only superpower? When is it acceptable to topple another country's leader? Are personal freedom and national security mutually incompatible? The answers to urgent political questions such as these are informed by 23 centuries of discourse that started with The Republic. This program focuses successively on the pivotal ideas of Plato, Aristotle, Hobbes, Rousseau, Marx, Mill, John Rawls, and Robert Nozick to elucidate the thinking that underpins the West's conceptions of good and bad government
Epistemology what we can know ( Visual )
4 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This program travels from Plato's cave to Gettier's papier-mache barns while addressing along the way, questions such as: What does it mean to really know something? How can one know that one knows it? And is seeing the same thing as believing? Insights from academicians, in combination with incisive excerpts from Aristotle's De anima, Descartes' Meditations on first philosophy, Locke's An essay on human understanding, Hume's A treatise of human nature and Kant's Critique of pure reason, illuminate the complexity of "Truth."
Logic the structure of reason ( Visual )
4 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
As a tool for characterizing rational thought, logic cuts across many philosophical disciplines and lies at the core of mathematics and computer science. Drawing on Aristotle's Organon, Russell's Principia mathematica, and other central works, this program tracks the evolution of logic beginning with the basic syllogism. A sampling of subsequent topics includes propositional and predicated logic, Bayesian confirmation theory, Boolean logic, Frege's use of variables and quantifiers, Gödel's work with metamathematics, the Vienna Circle's logical positivism and the Turing machine
Philosophy of mind ( Visual )
2 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The mysterious relationship between the mind and the body is avidly being researched by today's cognitive scientists. This program seeks to understand the mind/matter dichotomy through the eyes of some of history's keenest philosophers, including Descartes, Wittgenstein, Leibniz, Mill, Gilbert Ryle, Willard Van Orman Quine, Thomas Nagel, and John Searle. Three of today's leading lights in this intriguing branch of philosophy-Colin McGinn and Brian McLaughlin, both of Rutgers University, and NYU's Ned Block-share their views as well. Descartes's Meditations, Wittgenstein's Philosophical Investigations, and Quine's "Mind and Verbal Dispositions" are consulted
Ethics ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Moral philosophy lies at the heart of today's most heated issues-abortion, human cloning, assisted suicide, financial conflicts of interest, and environmental stewardship. In this program, Harvard University's Frances Kamm; Rutgers University's Larry Temkin; and Richard Sorabji, honorary fellow at Wolfson College, the University of Oxford, describe the three major categories of ethics: metaethics; applied ethics; and normative ethics, including virtue theory, divine command theory, utilitarian theory, and duty theory. Plato's Republic, Aristotle's Nicomachean Ethics, Kant's Grounding for the Metaphysics of Morals, and Mill's Utilitarianism are considered, along with the contributions of Epicurus, Hume, Bentham, Hegel, Marx, Nietzsche, John Rawls, and others
Philosophy of science ( Visual )
4 editions published between 2004 and 2009 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Does science explain the world, or does it simply describe it? Can science ever be truly objective? What is the boundary between science and non-science? Does nature have laws? This program seeks to answer questions such as these through the insights of Princeton University's Daniel Garber; Hilary Putnam, of Harvard University; and Barry Loewer, of Rutgers University. Ranging from the Physics of Aristotle to the competing physics paradigms of Einstein and Bohr, the program illustrates the progression of scientific thought from ancient times, through the Renaissance, to the 21st century.

Analytic philosophy ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A century after its inception, analytic philosophy continues to clarify issues through argumentation, analysis, and logical rigor-and to parse out the phenomenon of language. This program scrutinizes the founding of analytic philosophy, the rise of logical positivism, the rejection of metaphysics, and the advent of linguistic philosophy through Russell's Principia Mathematica, Wittgenstein's Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus, Willard Van Orman Quine's "Two Dogmas of Empiricism," the Vienna Circle's manifesto, and other seminal works. Penetrating commentary is provided by Harvard University's Hilary Putnam, Rutgers University's Colin McGinn, and USC's Scott Soames. (49 minutes)

Metaphysics ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Systematic thought about the true nature of things is the very foundation of philosophical reasoning: idealism and materialism...realism, nominalism, and conceptualism...the noumenal and the phenomenal...logical positivism, emergentism, and modal realism. In this program, Rutgers philosophers Brian McLaughlin, Barry Loewer, John Hawthorne, Ted Sider, and Dean Zimmerman discuss the nature of this most ancient branch of philosophy, exploring concepts of causation, time, necessity, and possibility and contemplating the big questions of "Who am I?" and "Where am I?" In the process, they reference the works and theories of Aristotle, Plato, William of Ockham, Hume, Kant, Mill, Leibniz, and others
