Rorty & pragmatism the philosopher responds to his critics by Richard Rorty( file )
9 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 944 libraries worldwide
Richard Rorty is a philosopher who has been taken seriously in fields and disciplines far beyond his own. He challenges established forms of philosophical inquiry, particularly epistemology and metaphysics, jettisoning philosophical claims to unchanging truth and to scientific accuracy. His view that philosophy is pragmatic, interpretive, and historicist has brought him both accolades and criticism. In Rorty and Pragmatism, this highly influential and sometimes controversial philosopher responds to several of his most prominent critics, representing a wide range of backgrounds and concerns. Each of these critical challenges raises significant questions about Rorty's philosophical outlook. Whether or not one agrees with all of his positions, his replies are consequential. They provide insight into Rorty's thought, its development, and his sense of the future of philosophy. They further the discussion of the role of philosophy and of its contributions to society

The sense of beauty, being the outlines of aesthetic theory by George Santayana( Book )
8 editions published between 1986 and 1995 in English and held by 373 libraries worldwide
"This work contains the chief ideas gathered together for a course of lectures on the theory and history of aesthetics given at Harvard College from 1892 to 1895. The only originality the author claims is that which may result from the attempt to put together the scattered commonplaces of criticism into a system, under the inspiration of a naturalistic psychology. His effort throughout has been to recall those fundamental aesthetic feelings the orderly extension of which yields sanity of judgment and distinction of taste"--Pref.

Interpretations of poetry and religion by George Santayana( Book )
5 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in English and held by 325 libraries worldwide
In 1900, Santayana's assault on conventional pieties outraged contemporaries like William James. This first work of prose criticism asserts that poetry is called religion when it intervenes in life, and religion, when it merely supervenes upon life, is seen to be nothing but poetry. Santayana's ideas continue to influence debates over science and religion

The last Puritan : a memoir in the form of a novel by George Santayana( Book )
3 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 4 libraries worldwide
Published in 1935, George Santayana's The Last Puritan was the American philosopher's only novel and it became an instant best seller, immediately linked in its painful voyage of self-discovery to The Education of Henry Adams. It is essentially a novel of ideas expressed in the birth, life, and early death of Oliver Alden. Oliver escapes puritanical self-destruction, the inability to celebrate life, through a form of self-knowledge that Santayana endorses throughout his moral philosophy. The Last Puritan is volume four in a new critical edition of The Works of George Santayana that restores Santayana's original text and provides important new scholarly information. Books in this series - the first complete publication of Santayana's works - include an editorial apparatus with notes to the text (identifying persons, places, and ideas), textual commentary (including a description of the composition and publication history, along with a discussion of editorial methods and decisions), lists of variants and emendations, and line-end hyphenations. This edition of The Last Puritan was originally based on the typescript for the first part of the novel. The exciting discovery of the second half of the typescript in the fall of 1992 has resulted in a consistent copy-text throughout, making its text more firmly based on Santayana's intentions. Irving Singer's introduction highlights Santayana's philosophical and artistic concerns and addresses issues of homosexuality raised by the depiction of the novel's two protagonists, Oliver and Mario, and of the relationship between Oliver and the rogue character Jim Darnley. Finding the term "homosexual novel" too reductionist and imprecise, Singer brings to light the author's festive celebration of reality, including ideal friendship, and his success in illuminating the pervasive moral dilemmas that people face throughout their existence. The Santayana Edition was initiated by members of the Society for the Advancement of American Philosophy with funds provided by the National Endowment for the Humanities and Comite Conjunto Hispano - Norteamericano para la Cooperacion Cultural y Educativa. This volume has been awarded the "Approved Edition" emblem of the Modern Language Association Committee on Scholarly Editions. Editors of The Works of George Santayana include: Herman J. Saatkamp, Jr., General Editor, Department of Philosophy and Humanites at Texas A&M University; William G. Holzberger, Textual Editor, Department of English at Bucknell University; and Donna Hanna-Calvert, Associate Editor at Texas A&M University. Irving Singer is Professor of Philosophy at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and author of Meaning in Life: The Creation of Value
