Download and read online Through Self discovery to Self transcendence in PDF and EPUB One of the most original thinkers of our time who has clearly grasped the foundational significance of the question of human knowledge is undoubtedly the Canadian Jesuit Bernard J. F. Lonergan. The very core of all the achievements of Lonergan is the exercise of self-appropriation. By a conscious self-possession of one's dynamic interiority one is enabled to transcend one's own subjectivity to the real world of human subjects for an authentic and meaningful human existence. This study outlines the process personally appropriating the cognitional dynamism of human consciousness, inquires into the foundational character of this exercise in Lonergan and draws out its important implications for contemporary thought and life.
Download and read online Knowing Other wise in PDF and EPUB Recent discussions in the various circles of feminism, postmodernism, and environmentalism have begun to make clear that ontology and epistemology without ethics is deadly - oppressive to women, oppressive to men, oppressive to the earth. In response to this crisis of reason in modernity, this collection of essays suggests the importance of knowing other-wise, non-rational ways of knowing which are wise to the other- a spiritual knowing of the heart with the passionate eye of love. Knowing Otherwise calls into question the Western philosophical tradition of giving pride of place to reason in the acquisition of knowledge. Reasoning is only one of many ways in which we engage, i.e. know, the world. We know more than we think. We know by touch, by feel, by taste, by sight, by sounds, by smell, by symbols, by sex, by trust - by means of every modality of human experience. Philosophy becomes, in the fashion of Levinas, the wisdom of love at the service of love. Tracing connections between epistemology, ethics, and spirituality - between knowing and the other, between an other and the Other - all the essays serve as points of convergence between postmodern discussions and the Calvinian spirituality which is the home for writers in this collection. In particular, this collection explores the contributions of feminist thought and thinkers such as Emmanuel Levinas, Richard Rorty, Jacqes Derrida, and John D. Caputo to a spiritually and ethically sensitive knowing. . . . remarkably accessible . . . indispensable for Christians who perceive a second, more positive postmodernism.-Third Way . . . remarkably accessible . . . indispensable for Christians who perceive a second, more positive postmodernism.

Download and read online Museums and the Shaping of Knowledge in PDF and EPUB Museums have been active in shaping knowledge over the last six hundred years. Yet what is their function within today's society? At the present time, when funding is becoming increasingly scarce, difficult questions are being asked about the justification of museums. Museums and the Shaping of Knowledge presents a critical survey of major changes in current assumptions about the nature of museums. Through the examination of case studies, Eilean Hooper-Greenhill reveals a variety of different roles for museums in the production and shaping of knowledge. Today, museums are once again organising their spaces and collections to present themselves as environments for experimental and self-directed learning.

Download and read online Knowing Tomorrow in PDF and EPUB In a society characterized by turbulence and change, predicting the future has become an invaluable skill for managers, politicians, and scientists alike. As a result, scientific researchers have become increasingly interested in the study of the future. In Knowing Tomorrow?, an international team of contributors analyzes how the concept of the future is being addressed across academic disciplines. From the perspectives as varied as psychology, philosophy, economics, and astronomy, this groundbreaking volume examines how scholars have incorporated the future in their work. By illustrating how future research can be applied and evaluated, Knowing Tomorrow? establishes this growing field as a discipline in its own right.
Download and read online The Theory of the Knowledge Square The Fuzzy Rational Foundations of the Knowledge Production Systems in PDF and EPUB The monograph is about a meta-theory of knowledge-production process and the logical pathway that connects the epistemic possibility to the epistemic reality. It examines the general conditions of paradigms for information processing and isolates the classical and fuzzy paradigms for comparative analysis. The sets of conditions that give rise to them are defined, stated and analyzed to abstract the corresponding sets of laws of thought. The fuzzy paradigm with its corresponding logic and mathematics is related to inexact symbolism for the defective information structure where the results of the knowledge production must satisfy the epistemic conditionality, composed of fuzzy conditionality and fuzzy-stochastic conditionality under the principle of logical duality with continuum. The classical paradigm with its corresponding logic and mathematics is related to exact symbolism for exact information structure where the vagueness component of the defectiveness is assumed away, and where the results of the knowledge production must satisfy no epistemic conditionality or at the maximum only the stochastic conditionality under the principle of logical dualism with excluded middle. It is argued that the epistemic path that links ontological space to the epistemological space is information. The ontological space is taken as the primary category of reality while the epistemological space is shone to be a derivative. Such information is universally defective and together with assumptions imposed guides the development of paradigms with their laws of thought, logic of reasoning, mathematics and computational techniques. The relational structure is seen in terms of logical trinity with a given example as matter-information-energy transformational trinity which is supported by the time trinity of past-present-future relationality. The book is written for professionals, researchers and students working in philosophy of science, decision-choice theories, economies, sciences, computer science, engineering, cognitive psychology and researchers working on, or interested in fuzzy paradigm, fuzzy logic, fuzzy decisions, and phenomena of vagueness and ambiguities, fuzzy mathematics, fuzzy-stochastic processes and theory of knowledge. It is further aimed at research institutions and libraries. The subject matter belongs to extensive research and development taking place on fuzzy phenomena and the debate between the fuzzy paradigm and the classical paradigm relative to informatics, synergetic science and complexity theory. The book will have a global appeal and across disciplines. Its strength, besides the contents, is the special effort that is undertaken to make it relevant and accessible to different areas of sciences and knowledge production.
Download and read online Doing Justice Knowing God Volume 4 in PDF and EPUB Doing Justice: Knowing God represents a fundamentally new departure in ethical theory. Drawing on the work of Alasdair MacIntyre, John Milbank, and Franklin Gamwell, it argues that that modern and postmodern moral theory is fundamentally inadequate, and that the current crisis of values can be resolved only on the basis of a substantive vision of the Good. But it goes beyond these thinkers to argue that such a vision must be grounded metaphysically in a revitalized doctrine of Being. The result is a radically historicized natural-law ethics. This ethics argues that not only human individuals but human societies and indeed the universe as a whole grow and develop toward God. The fundamental moral law is to act in such a way as to promote this development. The book draws out the implications of this insight for our understanding of the virtues as well as for social justice.
