Treatise of Human Nature Oxford University Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

A Treatise of Human Nature (1739-40), David Hume's comprehensive attempt to base philosophy on a new, observationally grounded study of human nature, is one of the most important texts in Western philosophy. It is also the focal point of current attempts to understand 18th-century philosophy. The Treatise first explains how we form such concepts as cause and effect, external existence, and personal identity, and to form compelling but unconfirmable beliefs in the entities represented by these concepts. It then offers a novel account of the passions, explains freedom and necessity as they apply to human choices and actions, and concludes with detailed explanations of how we distinguish between virtue and vice and of the different kinds of virtue. Hume's Abstract of the Treatise, also included in the volume, outlines his 'chief argument' regarding our conception of, and belief in, cause and effect. The texts printed in this volume are those of the critical edition of Hume's philosophical works now being published by the Clarendon Press. The volume includes a substantial introduction explaining the aims of the Treatise as a whole and of each of its ten parts, extensive annotations, a glossary of terms, a comprehensive index, and suggestions for further reading.

Beyond Human Nature - 2826719584

Beyond Human Nature Penguin

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

We are constantly told that human traits - from aggression to gender differences - are 'hardwired'. In "Beyond Human Nature" Jesse J. Prinz reveals that it is the societies we live in, not our genes, that determine how we think and feel. From why mental illness differs so widely between cultures to how geography influences morals, from our sexual preferences to how we learn languages, he proves that the vast diversity of behaviour is not ingrained. This is a book about humanity's power to transcend nature; and one that, ultimately, celebrates our differences. Jesse J. Prinz is currently a Distinguished Professor of philosophy at the City University of New York and an Adjunct Professor of Philosophy at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where he taught until January 2009. He works primarily in the philosophy of psychology and has produced books and articles on emotion, moral psychology, aesthetics and consciousness. "From start to finish this book is a fine, balanced, enormously learned and informative blast on the trumpet of common sense and humane understanding ...wonderful". (Simon Blackburn, "New Statesman"). "The nature versus nurture tussle has been running for centuries, and into this fervid arena steps Jesse J. Prinz ...he explores the origins of knowledge, language, thought and emotion and argues that there is not one human nature, but many". (Carl Wilkinson, "Financial Times"). "Jesse Prinz wants to call a halt to the "century of the gene" ...in a backlash against the tyranny of DNA". ("Sydney Morning Herald").

Religion and Human Nature - 2845289286

Religion and Human Nature Oxford University Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Continuing Keith Ward's series on comparative religion, this book deals with religious views of human nature and destiny. The beliefs of six major traditions are presented: the view of Advaita Vedanta that there is one Supreme Self, unfolding into the illusion of individual existence; the Vaishnava belief that there is an infinite number of souls, whose destiny is to be released from material embodiment; the Buddhist view that there is no eternal Self; the Abrahamic belief that persons are essentially embodied souls; and the materialistic position that persons are complex material organisms. Indian ideas of rebirth, karma, and liberation from samsara are critically analysed and compared with semitic belief in the intermediate state of Sheol, Purgatory or Paradise, the Final Judgement and the resurrection of the body. The impact of scientific theories of cosmic and biological evolution on religious beliefs is assessed, and a form of 'soft emergent materialism' is defended, with regard to the soul. In this context, a Christian doctrine of original sin and atonement is presented, stressing the idea of soterial, as opposed to forensic, justice. Finally, a Christian view of personal immortality and the 'end of all things' is developed in conversation with Jewish and Muslim beliefs about judgement and resurrection.

The Balance of Nature and Human Impact - 2826720099

The Balance of Nature and Human Impact Cambridge University Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

It is clear that nature is undergoing rapid changes as a result of human activities such as industry, agriculture, travel, fisheries and urbanisation. What effects do these activities have? Are they disturbing equilibria in ecological populations and communities, thus upsetting the balance of nature, or are they enhancing naturally occurring disequilibria, perhaps with even worse consequences? It is often argued that large-scale fluctuations in climate and sea-levels have occurred over and over again in the geological past, long before human activities could possibly have had any impact, and that human effects are very small compared to those that occur naturally. Should we conclude that human activity cannot significantly affect the environment, or are these naturally occurring fluctuations actually being dangerously enhanced by humans? This book examines these questions, first by providing evidence for equilibrium and non-equilibrium conditions in relatively undisturbed ecosystems, and second by examining human-induced effects.

Man is by Nature a Political Animal University of Chicago Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

In "Man Is by Nature a Political Animal", Peter K. Hatemi and Rose McDermott bring together a diverse group of contributors to examine the ways in which evolutionary theory and biological research are increasingly informing analyses of political behavior. Focusing on the theoretical, methodological, and empirical frameworks of a variety of biological approaches to political attitudes and preferences, the authors consider a wide range of topics, including the comparative basis of political behavior, the utility of formal modeling informed by evolutionary theory, the genetic bases of attitudes and behaviors, psychophysiological methods and research, and the wealth of insight generated by recent research on the human brain. Through this approach, the book reveals the biological bases of many previously unexplained variances within the extant models of political behavior. The diversity of methods discussed and variety of issues examined here will make this book of great interest to students and scholars seeking a comprehensive overview of this emerging approach to the study of politics and behavior.

Natural Law and Human Dignity University Press Group Ltd

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Ernst Bloch (1885-1977), one of the most original and influential of contemporary European thinkers and a founder of the Frankfurt School, has left his mark on a range of fields from philosophy and social theory to aesthetics and theology. Natural Law and Human Dignity, the first of his major works to appear in English is unique in its attempt to get beyond the usual oppositions between the natural law and social utopian traditions, providing basic insights on the question of human rights in a socialist society. Natural Law and Human Dignity is a sweeping yet synthetic work that critically reviews the great legal philosophies, from Plato to the present, in order to uncover and clarify the normative features of true socialism. Along the way it offers thoughtful reflections on topics as diverse as the abolition of poverty and degradation, the nature of the state, and the installation of freedom and dignity.Taking the idea of natural law as his guiding thread, Bloch argues that revolution and right, rather than being antagonistic, are fundamentally interconnected. With their emphasis on human dignity, the traditions of natural law have an irreplaceable contribution to make to the socialist vision of a more humane society. In his effort to wed the demands of law and right to the agenda of social revolution, Bloch offers a radical restructuring of our understanding of the social world. This rethinking of the fundamental principles of political philosophy is the product of a long personal and philosophical odyssey. Bloch lived as a writer in Munich, Bern, and Berlin until he was forced to emigrate to Czechoslovakia and then to the United States during World War 11. After the war he returned to East Germany, where he held a chair in philosophy at the University of Leipzig. He emigrated to the west as the Berlin Wall was being built (carrying the manuscript of this book under his arm), and he taught at the University of Tubingen until his death. Natural Law and Human Dignity is included in the series Studies in Contemporary German Social Thought, edited by Thomas McCarthy.

Human Embryology and Morphology (Classic Reprint) Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from Human Embryology and Morphology The issue of a new edition has given the author an opportunity not only of incorporating recent additions to our knowledge of the development and morphology of the human body, but also of recasting many of the chapters. Over eighty new illustrations have been added. The chief alterations relate to sections dealing with the origin of the foetal membranes, the growth of the embryo and foetus, and the nature of the basal ganglia of the brain. The chapters dealing with the pharynx, the ear, the heart, and the lymphatic system have been rearranged and to a large extent rewritten. The enquiries of the late Professor Franklin P.Mall have shown that human embryos, in their earlier stages, are a week older than was formerly believed. The estimated ages of embryos now given in this work are based on Professor Mall's calculations. Experience has confirmed the author in his earlier opinion that the facts of embryology are barren and meaningless until they are interpreted in the light of our knowledge of the evolution of the human body - a knowledge which must be founded on a comprehensive survey of comparative anatomy and physiology. Hence in this new edition the author has sought to give, not only a descriptive history of the development of the various systems of the body, but to make the facts intelligible by bringing a knowledge of comparative anatomy and evolution to bear on them. Human Embryology and Comparative Anatomy have become vast fields of knowledge. Here they are dealt with only in so far as they bear directly on the nature of the human body, and reflect what the author has found to be useful in the course of his daily work and teaching. Every effort has been made to make the book representative of the latest British Research. In the preparation of the present edition the author has become indebted to a very wide circle of friends too numerous to be mentioned individually. He cannot, however, allow the occasion to pass without a warm acknowledgment of his indebtedness to Dr. Alexander Low, Lecturer on Embryology in the University of Aberdeen, for the help he has given.

The connections between ecological and human health GRIN Verlag

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Essay from the year 2004 in the subject Environmental Sciences, grade: HD, Murdoch University (ISTP - Institute for Sustainability and Technology Policy), course: Ecology, Society, And Human Health, 16 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: From 'what' to 'how' questions: Questions of the type 'What is/are the nature/the co nnections of/between such and such?' contain archaic neglected residues. They insinuate that one heads out 'in the world' and will find 'the nature of or the connections between such and such'. The author emphasises the need to overcome such a naďve realisticontological worldview and to take a more linguistic-constructivist approach. One does not discover god-given essences or connections, but rather humans construct worldviews according to their available technologies, cultures, and aims. Thus, this essay will try to answer the question 'How do certain authors write about the connections between human health and ecological health?'. (ii) Semantic illusions: Taking Nelson Goodman seriously, the question can be divided into several sub-questions. The definite article in the notion 'the connections' seduces one to assume that there is a definite set of connections. Rather, it is the case that by different a uthors different connections are named. And actually, what does the term 'connection' mean? Linguistic connections between the terms 'human health' and 'ecological health' could be that both terms (a) contain the word 'health', (b) consist of two words, or (c) that they differ in the amount of letters. In order to try to give more 'substantial' connections between human health and ecological health, it is necessary to investigate what these terms mean, or to put it in a more appropriate way, how the (academic) community uses, applies, or employs these terms.
