Psychology from an empirical standpoint by Franz Brentano( Book )

"Psychology from an Empirical Standpoint is Brentano's most important and brilliant work. It helped to establish psychology as a scientific discipline, but did so in a highly original and distinctive manner by arguing for a form of introspectionism. Brentano argued that consciousness is always unified and that the hallmark of the mind is that one's thoughts are always directed towards something - his famous theory of 'intentionality' - arguments that have deep implications not just for philosophy but psychology, cognitive science and consciousness studies."--Publisher's website
Descriptive psychology by Franz Brentano( )

32 editions published between 1982 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 1,371 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Descriptive Psychology represents a series of lectures held by Brentano between 1887 and 1891. Here Brentano set forth his theory of consciousness, and he did so with the scientific clarity that was one of his main objectives. Exemplary in their methodical and analytic rigour, the epistemological considerations put forward in Descriptive Psychology remain as valid today as when they were first formulated."--Jacket
On the several senses of being in Aristotle by Franz Brentano( Book )

57 editions published between 1862 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 1,075 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Franz Brentano's 1862 dissertation represents a milestone in the systematic exploration of Aristotelian metaphysics in the nineteenth century. The focus of the work is on the Aristotelian table of categories, and specifically on demonstrating its systematic deducibility. The meticulous analyses in the work will continue to provide insights and incentives for fruitful contemporary research on Aristotle

43 editions published between 1930 and 2010 in English and German and held by 823 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in English in1966, The True and The Evident is a translation of Franz Brentano's posthumous Wahrheit und Evidenz, edited by Oscsar Kraus. The book includes Brentano's influential lecture "On the Concept of Truth", read before the Vienna Philosophical Society, a variety of essays, drawn from the immense wealth of Brentano's unpublished material, and letters written by him to Marty, Kraus Hillebrand, and Husserl. Brentano rejects the familiar versions of the "correspondence theory of truth" and proposes to define the true in terms of the evident. In criticisi
The foundation and construction of ethics, compiled from his lectures on practical philosophy by Franz Brentano( Book )

30 editions published between 1973 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 697 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Expanding on the theory of ethics first posited by Brentano in The Origin of our Knowledge of Right and Wrong this re-issued work, first published posthumously in 1952, is based on series of lectures on practical philosophy, given at the university of Vienna from 1876 to 1894. The English-speaking reader will find it interesting to examine the step-by-step development of Brentano's ethical theory, his extensive critique of British moral philosophers, and his unusually detailed section on casuistry
The theory of categories by Franz Brentano( Book )

68 editions published between 1933 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 692 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book contains the definitive statement of Franz Brentano's views on meta physics. It is made up of essays which were dictated by Brentano during the last ten years of his life, between 1907 and 1917. These dictations were assembled and edited by Alfred Kastil and first published by the Felix Meiner Verlag in 1933 under the title Kategorienlehre. Kastil added copious notes to Brentano's text. These notes have been included, with some slight omissions, in the present edition; the bibliographical references have been brought up to date. Brentano's approach to philosophy is unfamiliar to many contemporay readers. I shall discuss below certain fundamental points which such readers are likely to find the most difficult. I believe that once these points are properly understood, then what Brentano has to say will be seen to be of first importance to philosophy. THE PRIMACY OF THE INTENTIONAL To understand Brentano's theory of being, one must realize that he appeals to what he calls inner perception for his paradigmatic uses of the word "is". For inner perception, according to Brentano, is the source of our knowledge of the nature of being, just as it is the source of our knowledge of the nature of truth and of the nature of good and evil. And what can be said about the being of things that are not apprehended in inner perception can be understood only by analogy with what we are able to say about ourselves as thinking subjects

On the existence of God : lectures given at the Universities of Würzburg and Vienna, 1868-1891 by Franz Brentano( Book )

53 editions published between 1929 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 612 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Of the works by Franz Brentano (1838-1917) which have appeared in thus far, perhaps none is better suited to convey a clear idea of the English spirit of the man that this volume of his lectures on proving the existence of God. In order to understand his metaphysics, it would he better to read The Theory of Categories; in order to master the finer points of his psychology, it would be better to read Psychology From an Empirical Standpoint; in order to appreciate his ethical theory, it would be better to read The Origin of Our Knowledge of Right and Wrong or, for a more thorough treatment, The Foundation and Construction of Ethics. But in order to see what it was that gave Brentano the enthusiasm and dedication to do all that work and much more besides, it is necessary to find out what Brentano believed the philosophical enterprise itself to be; and this comes forth most vividly when he bends his philosophical efforts to the subject he considered most important of all, namely, natural theology. For, like Socrates, Brentano brought a kind of religious fervor to his philosophy precisely because he saw it as dealing much better than religion does with the matters that are closest to our hearts

"Franz Brentano is recognised as one of the most important philosophers of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. This work, first published in English in 1988, besides being an important contribution to metaphysics in its own right, has considerable historical importance through its influence on Husserl's views on internal time consciousness. The work is preceded by a long introduction by Stephan Körner in collaboration with Brentano's literary executor."
