Practical Reasoning and Ethical Decision

Practical Reasoning and Ethical Decision presents an account of practical reasoning as a process that can explain action, connect reasoning with intention, justify practical judgments, and provide a basis for ethical decisions. The first part of the book is a detailed critical overview of the influential theories of practical reasoning found in Aristotle, Hume, and Kant. The second part examines practical reasoning in the light of important topics in moral psychology-weakness of will, self-deception, rationalization, and others. In the third part, Audi describes the role of moral principles in practical reasoning and clarifies the way practical reasoning underlies ethical decisions. He formulates a comprehensive set of concrete ethical principles, explains how they apply to reasoning about what to do, and shows how practical reasoning guides moral conduct.

Logic brings elementary logic out of the academic darkness into the light of day and makes the subject fully accessible. Paul Tomassi writes in a patient and user-friendly style which makes both the nature and value of formal logic crystal clear. The reader is encouraged to develop critical and analytical skills and to achieve a mastery of all the most successful formal methods for logical analysis. This textbook proceeds from a frank, informal introduction to fundamental logical notions, to a system of formal logic rooted in the best of our natural deductive reasoning in daily life. As the book develops, a comprehensive set of formal methods for distinguishing good arguments from bad is defined and discussed. In each and every case, methods are clearly explained and illustrated before being stated in formal terms.

The unconscious: a conceptual analysis

Alasdair MacIntyre argues that Freud's conception of the unconscious is complicated by his tendency to use the term in two different ways. MacIntyre shows how Freud uses the term "unconscious" both as a straightforward description of psychological phenomena, and as an evaluative notion to explain the links between childhood events and adult behavior. This clarification helps to shed light on the many misunderstandings of psychoanalysis, and to separate out what is and what is not of lasting value in Freud's account of the unconscious.

Antinaturalism rose to dominance in the debate on psychologism among German academic philosophers at the turn of the century. Psychologism, according to received opinion, was decisively refuted by Frege and Husserl. Kusch therefore examines their arguments and, crucially, relates them to the context that shaped that debate and gave those arguments their persuasive force.

Psychology and Human Nature

Psychology and Human Nature problematizes what psychology usually takes for granted - the meaning of the psyche or 'human nature'. Peter Ashworth provides a coherent account of many of the major schools of thought in psychology and its related disciplines, including: sociobiology and evolutionary psychology, psychoanalysis, cognitive psychology, radical behaviourism, existentialism, discursive psychology and postmodernism. For each approach he considers the claims or assumptions being made about 'human nature', especially regarding issues of consciousness, the self, the body, other people and the physical world. Psychology and 'Human Nature' will be essential reading for all students of psychology. Series Details; The Psychology Focus Series provides students with a new focus on key topic areas in psychology. Each short book: presents clear, in-depth coverage of a discrete area with many applied examples, assumes no prior knowlede of psychology, has been written by an experienced teacher, has chapter summaries and annotated further reading and a glossary of key terms.

Tao: The Pathless Path, Vol

Osho talks about stories based on The Book of Lieh Tzu attributed to a 5th-century Chinese mystic. It is not known if Lieh Tzu ever existed, or if the parables attributed to him were written by one person or many. More significant than their origin are the parables themselves, and the way in which Osho takes them and opens the door to the mysteries they contain. In the course of his commentary and his answers to questions, Osho speaks of Beckett and Buddha, Gurdjieff and Hitler, Einstein and Confucius. He also talks about psychotherapy and Taoism, Taoism and escapism, esoterica and humor; jealousy, possessiveness, the nature of senility, and falling asleep during his talks.

Light on the Path

These first talks after Osho's departure from the US provide a rare glimpse, during his movement's most uncertain times, into his efforts to create a New Man. From his suite in a hotel in Kathmandu, Nepal, Osho speaks extensively on the connection between gnosticism and anarchy, the buddhafield and the future of his communes worldwide, the function of a spiritual master, his sannyasin therapists and the "psychology of the buddhas," and the nature of inner growth.

From Unconciousness to Consciousness

Osho's first words spoken after a period of three years of silence herald a completely new dimension to his work. It is as if he has drawn a sword and slices through the deceit of history. Man, his politics and so-called religion are all totally exposed. Responding to questions solely from his disciples, Osho talks on the psychology of a creed based on following; the question of belief in God; whether Osho is a messiah or not; the attitude of traditional holy men towards women; his understanding of the political mind-set; how he feels about Communism, why his sannyasins lead such a rich life, why their happiness is attributed to their being brainwashed or hypnotized, and many more. "You just don't read Osho, you undefine yourself."
