              Starting from the supposition that Nietzsche is a humanist, this book asks the question what then? . It inquires if our age's preference for the novel and revolutionary mean than unmasking Nietzsche as a humanist will amount to his inevitable diminishment.

              This book is aimed at addressing two common misconceptions. The first is that belief in G-d is purely a matter of faith and cannot be supported by rational arguments. The second is that rationality is incompatible with mysticism. The section on relationship to mysticism draws on ...the literature of Chabad Hasidic philosophy and the teachings of the Lubavitcher Rebbe. Special attention is devoted to near-death experiences.

              Gerauld de' Cordemoy: Atomist, Occasionalist, Cartesian
               

              Gerauld de' Cordemoy: Atomist, Occasionalist, Cartesian (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              Gerauld de Cordemoy (1626-1684) was one of the leading French Cartesians of his day. He was the sole Cartesian atomist, and was perhaps the first to argue that Cartesian metaphysics led inescapably to occasionalism. Fred Ablondi offers the first book-length treatment in English o...f Cordemoy's work, filling a long-standing gap in the literature on seventeenth-century philosophical thought. Ablondi reconstructs and analyzes the arguments which Cordemoy employed to arrive at this atomism and his occasionalism, treating them as philosophically and historically important in their own right. In addition to offering a general introduction to Cordemoy's philosophy, this book also examines many previous interpretations of Cordemoy's thought--both those made by his own contemporaries and also those by more recent scholars. As a result, Cordemoy emerges as an original and influential philosopher--and one who, despite his deviations from 'orthodox' Cartesianism, remained very much within the Cartesian tradition.

              Free Will, Predestination, & Determinism
               

              Free Will, Predestination, & Determinism (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              Although the problem of the free-will has been a well-known battleground for philosophers, the problem has significant theological implications too. But attempts to address the problem of the free-will from both the theological and philosophical perspectives are not all that comm...on. Covering the psychological and philosophical conditions for free will, dealing also with compatibilism and chance as well as the historical background of predestination and other theological problems from the Biblical and Patristic periods through the Scholastics and Reformation into the twentieth century, John Cowburn offers a unique and detailed defense of free will against determinism while at the same time responding to practical questions on making decisions, the influence of emotion, and moral theological concerns.

              In The Feeling of Meaninglessness, Viktor Frankl, the founder of logotherapy, a psychotherapeutic method which focus on a will to meaning as the driving force of human life, takes a look at how the modern condition affects the human search for meaning. In this series of articles ...and essays, he discusses how many people suffer from pervasive feelings of meaninglessness in their lives, despite the great material comforts of industrial society. He attributes this sense of meaninglessness to a neglect of our existential needs and offers practical insights and guidelines for how to overcome this meaninglessness and regain mental health through engagement with our existential needs and selves.

              Suarez: Between Scholasticism & Modernity
               

              Suarez: Between Scholasticism & Modernity (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              Francisco Suarez (1548-1617) is one of the great anomalies in the history of thought: one thinker functioning in two contrary roles, each reversing the other. The role of being, on the one hand, the consummator of one phase of philosophical speculation, the realist and Scholastic...; and, on the other, the initiator (though an unwitting one) of another phase, the idealist, modern, and nihilist. This shift from realism to idealism was crucial in Western philosophy; it inaugurated an era of irrepressible, if chaotic, creativity.

              Justice in Oral Health Care: Ethical and Educational Perspectives (Trade Paperback / Paperback, illustrated edition)

              Oral health is an intrinsic part of overall health. The mouth is part of the digestive and respiratory systems; it is essential to spoken communication and facial expression; in fact, toothaches are among the most severe and hence debilitating kinds of pain that a person can suff...er. The economic cost of dental disease is staggering, equaling an annual loss of some 20 million days of work in the US alone. But far more disastrous is the personal cost for those suffering from these conditions. More than 100 million US citizens lack dental insurance. There is widespread consensus that the resulting disparities are most unfortunate. But are they also unfair? The dental profession and society at large appear much less eager to confirm the unfairness of this situation. After all, with unfairness comes the ethical obligation to attempt rectification of the situation. It is one thing to praise charitable voluntarism; it is quite another to insist on distributive justice. This book makes the case for justice in oral health. Renowned dental ethicists discuss various theoretical perspectives; national and international policy experts propose practical changes; and experienced dental educators outline innovative teaching modes. This book is not just food for thought; it is an invitation to critical discussion and creative planning.

              Appointed by John XXIII to the Pontifical Secretariat for the Promotion of the Unity of Christians, and then to the Vatican Council as theologian (peritus), George Tavard directly contributed to the writing of the Decree on Ecumenism and afterward served in major ecumenical dialo...gues, both in the U.S. and internationally. Born from this ecumenical experience and theological reflection and influenced by theology in France, where Henri de Lubac was one of his professors and he was personally acquainted with Jean Danielou and Yves Congar, the author will guide the reader through the problems, difficulties, intricacies, and also the hopes, possibilities, and discoveries of the ecumenical way, leading to see why John Paul II declared the ecumenical commitment of the Catholic Church to be irrevocable.
