In this book I develop an original theoretical position which arises out of a rich conception of the self. It involves the presentation of a distinct kind of moral particularism, which is an alternative to the traditional rejection of moral universalism. The position I propose acknowledges not only that variations in circumstances and contingent facts about agents are morally relevant, but also that variations in the natures of the agents themselves are morally relevant. Since the varied features of individual agents which I take to be morally relevant are objective rather than subjective the position turns out to be new and in some sense radical.This book also offers a novel conception of human dignity.Much of the approach to the notion of dignity that we have has been Kantain and the book offers a plausible alternative to that approach that has real substance to it. This contribution becomes necessary as the Kantian approach in a sense misses the whole point of a conception of dignity, as it precisely fails to dignify the individual human being.

When I first read The Sky Is Red, it reminded me vividly of my own impressions of post-war Italy when I arrived in Naples as a boy from New York in late 1945. I remember the ugly, bombed-out city, the widespread hunger, misery and despair. I witnessed political opportunism, widespread fraud, and violent crime. Even as a boy I understood the heartrending spectacle of otherwise honorable people forced to debase themselves in questionable and sordid activities in order to survive. I remember the gangs of urchins and adolescents roaming the streets, and the conversations of adults of various political stripes who were trying to figure out the best way to restore Italy as a functioning country. Giuseppe Berto published his novel in Italy in 1947. It depicts in graphic terms the country’s pervasive physical, psychological and moral devastation through the experiences of a group of adolescents struggling to grow up amid the ruins of a brutal war. Berto is careful not to identify the venue of his story, which could easily be any of the many towns and cities in Italy that had been ravaged. His narrative thus becomes a universal cry of despair and disillusion that quickly struck a responsive chord among the Italian reading public in the wake of World War II. Berto wrote his book in the United States in the final years of the war when he was a prisoner of war in Texas. Before his capture, Berto had served for several years in the Italian Army, and was certainly familiar with all the ugliness of war. I suspect that his manuscript reflects observations both during that time and when he got back home. The Sky Is Red focuses more on the lingering effects of war than on war’s direct violence. It is a powerful literary achievement and became a paradigm classic of post-war Italian literature. Christopher David Costanzo Henniker, N.H. November 24, 2019

Inspired by the murder of millionaire financier and banker Ted Ammon: A tax investigator races against time to save the love of his life—and the man who stole her from him Every tax cheat needs a lawyer, and every lawyer needs an investigator like Max Smoller. Max knows the tax code’s intricacies better than Uncle Sam himself, and lawyers pay handsomely for him to dig up their clients’ dirt, ensuring that no nasty surprises come out during trial. After years in the business, Smoller knows that every crook tells the same story—a tale forged by self-pity and unwavering greed. But he never thought he would hear that story from his former business partner Joe Dempsey. Even at the start of their once-promising partnership, Smoller knew Dempsey’s brilliance would eventually catapult his friend toward success beyond their shabby office on San Francisco’s Telegraph Hill. But Smoller never expected his lover, Christina Lawson, to follow Dempsey out the door. Years after the betrayal, Lawson and Dempsey are separated, and the IRS is nipping at their heels. With prosecution, bankruptcy, and prison on the horizon, it’s up to Smoller to save his former partner and the only woman he ever loved—before it’s too late. The Golden Gate Is Red is a riveting tale of avarice and betrayal, set against a vivid San Francisco backdrop.

Speaking to the reader of which he is aware, Julian Piedmont, aged vampire, reflects on his recent past with a voice that insists on acceptance but implies a feeling of hopelessness. He has survived to the present day by stealing the identities of his victims every few years, and changing cities and careers every so often in order to keep his name hidden. But this is not a story of his adventures in hiding; it is a darkly funny reflection on social dynamics, literature and unrequited love.

Black Elk of the Sioux has been recognized as one of the truly remarkable men of his time in the matter of religious belief and practice. Shortly before his death in August, 1950, when he was the "keeper of the sacred pipe," he said, "It is my prayer that, through our sacred pipe, and through this book in which I shall explain what our pipe really is, peace may come to those peoples who can understand, and understanding which must be of the heart and not of the head alone. Then they will realize that we Indians know the One true God, and that we pray to Him continually." Black Elk was the only qualified priest of the older Oglala Sioux still living when The Sacred Pipe was written. This is his book: he gave it orally to Joseph Epes Brown during the latter's eight month's residence on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota, where Black Elk lived. Beginning with the story of White Buffalo Cow Woman's first visit to the Sioux to give them the sacred pip~, Black Elk describes and discusses the details and meanings of the seven rites, which were disclosed, one by one, to the Sioux through visions. He takes the reader through the sun dance, the purification rite, the "keeping of the soul," and other rites, showing how the Sioux have come to terms with God and nature and their fellow men through a rare spirit of sacrifice and determination. The wakan Mysteries of the Siouan peoples have been a subject of interest and study by explorers and scholars from the period of earliest contact between whites and Indians in North America, but Black Elk's account is without doubt the most highly developed on this religion and cosmography. The Sacred Pipe, published as volume thirty-six in the Civilization of the American Indian Series, will be greeted enthusiastically by students of comparative religion, ethnologists, historians, philosophers, and everyone interested in American Indian life.

Wittgenstein’s Intentions, first published in 1993, presents a series of essays dedicated to the great Wittgenstein exegete John Hunter. The problematic topics discussed are identified not only by Wittgenstein’s own philosophical writings, but also by contemporary scholarship: areas of ambiguity, perhaps even confusion, as well as issues which the father of analytic philosophy did not himself address. The difficulties involved in speaking cogently about religious belief, suspicion, consciousness, the nature of the will, the coincidence of our thoughts with reality, and transfinite numbers are all investigated, as well as a variety of other intriguing questions: why can’t a baby pretend to smile? How do I know what I was going to say? Wittgenstein’s Intentions is an invaluable resource for students of Wittgenstein as well as scholars, and opens up a wide horizon of philosophical questioning for those as yet unfamiliar with this style of reasoning.

The analytic movement advertised its 'linguistic turn' as a radical break from the two-thousand-year-old substance tradition. But this is an illusion. On the fundamental level of ontology, there is enough reformulation and presupposition of traditional 'no entity without identity' themes to analogize Frege, Russell, Wittgenstein, and Quine to Aristotle as paradigmatic of modified realism. Thus the pace of ontology is glacial. Frege and Russell, not Wittgenstein and Quine, emerge as the true analytic progenitors of 'no entity without identity, ' offering between them at least twenty-nine private language arguments and sixty-four 'no entity without identity' theories

This book is a discussion of some of the major philosophical problems centering around the topic of sense perception and the foundations of human knowledge. It begins with a characterization of our common sense understanding of the role of the senses in the acquisition of belief, and it argues that scientific accounts of the processes of perception undermine salient parts of this understanding. The naive point of view of direct realism cannot be sustained in the light of a scientifically instructed understanding of perception. This critique of direct realism points to the correctness of the representative theory of perception characteristic of such early modem philosophers as Descartes and Locke, and it also endorses the subjective tum that they defended. It argues that these positions do not require introducing sense data into the picture, and thus it avoids the intractable problems that the sense datum philosophy introduces. In addition, several versions of cognitive accounts of sense perception are criticized with the result that it is unnecessary to characterize sensory processes in intentional terms. The book then turns to a leading question introduced into modem philosophy by Descartes and Locke, the question of the accuracy of the information delivered by the senses to our faculty of belief. In particular, how accurate are our representations of the secondary qualities? The case of color is considered in detail.

Two thousand years ago, Lucretius said that everything is atoms in the void; it's physics all the way down. Contemporary physicalism agrees. But if that's so how can we?how can our thoughts, emotions, our values?make anything happen in the physical world? This conceptual knot, the mental causation problem, is the core of the mind-body problem, closely connected to the problems of free will, consciousness, and intentionality. Anthony Dardis shows how to unravel the knot. He traces its early appearance in the history of philosophical inquiry, specifically in the work of Plato, Aristotle, Descartes, and T. H. Huxley. He then develops a metaphysical framework for a theory of causation, laws of nature, and the causal relevance of properties. Using this framework, Dardis explains how macro, or higher level, properties can be causally relevant in the same way that microphysical properties are causally relevant: by their relationship with the laws of nature. Smelling an orange, choosing the orange rather than the cheesecake, reaching for the one on the left instead of the one on the right-mental properties such as these take their place alongside the physical "motor of the world" in making things happen.

The Sultan secretly commissions a great book: a celebration of his life and the Ottoman Empire, to be illuminated by the best artists of the day - in the European manner. In Istanbul at a time of violent fundamentalism, however, this is a dangerous proposition. Even the illustrious circle of artists are not allowed to know for whom they are working. But when one of the miniaturists is murdered, their Master has to seek outside help. Did the dead painter fall victim to professional rivalry, romantic jealousy or religious terror? With the Sultan demanding an answer within three days, perhaps the clue lies somewhere in the half-finished pictures . . . From Turkey's winner of the Nobel Prize and author of Istanbul and The Museum of Innocence, this novel is a thrilling murder mystery set amid the splendour of Istanbul and the Ottoman Empire. Part fantasy and part philosophical puzzle, My Name is Red is also a stunning meditation on love, artistic devotion and the tensions between East and West.
