Steeves, H.Peter
Phenomenology, in its traditional encounters with ethics, has commonly aimed at a more descriptive rather than prescriptive goal. The direction of this text is both phenomenological and prescriptive as it attempts to provide a phenomenological foundation for communitarian ethical theory. It argues, following Husserl, that the Ego and the Other arise together in sense and we are committed to community in a foundational way. Consequently, we are foundationally imbedded in a deep community and a deep communitarian ethic. 154pp.

Edited By Tymieniecka,Anna-Teresa
What is truth? This fascinating spectrum of studies into the various rationalities of our human dealings with life - psychological, aesthetic, economic, spiritual - reveals their joints and calls for a new approach to truth. Putting both classical and contemporary conceptions aside, we find the primogenital ground of truth in the networks of correspondences, adequations, relevancies, and rationales at work in life's becoming. Does this plurivocal differentiation mean that the status of truth is relative? On the contrary, submits Anna-Teresa Tymieniecka, given the universal significance of the crucial instrument of the logos of life, "truth is the vortex of life's ontopoietic unfolding". 374pp.N.B.slight fade mark and scuff to base of D/J.

Edited By Sankey,Howard
This work is a collection of articles which represents current research on the metaphysics of causation and laws of nature, mostly by authors working in or active in the Australasian region. The book provides an overview of current work on the theory of causation, including counterfactual, singularist, nomological and causal process approaches. It also covers work on the nature of the laws of nature, with special emphasis on the scientific essentialist theory that laws of nature are, at base, the fundamental dispositions or capacities of natural kinds of things. Because the book represents a cross-section of authors currently working on these themes in the Australasian region, it conveys something of the interest of an active philosophical debate between advocates of several different research programmes in the area.Volume 14 in the Australasian Studies In History and Philosophy of Science.358pp.

Edited By Wear,Stephen Etc.
This volume focuses on issues that will have a fundamentally pivotal character as we move into the third millennium, and its individual contributions all have a futuristic approach, in that they identify the nature of the choices or dilemmas these issues will present to us in the future, and the various resolutions that might be made regarding them. The three main topic areas in this volume are: the dilemma of funding health care; the Human Genome Project; and the physician/patient relationship. By examining these three topics, this edition thus focuses on: the societal options for financing and distributing health care; what may well be the area of medical science and research that most radically affects the nature of that care in the foreseeable future: and the most fundamental unit of care.326pp.
