Описание: Often we act neither for our own sake nor out of duty or an impersonal concern for the world. Rather, we act out of love for objects that we rightly perceive as worthy of love - and it is these actions that give meaning to our lives. This title states that this kind of meaningfulness constitutes a distinctive dimension of a good life.
A spirited defense of the relevance of reason for an era of popular skepticism over such matters as climate change, vaccines, and evolution.
Why does reason matter, if (as many people seem to think) in the end everything comes down to blind faith or gut instinct? Why not just go with what you believe even if it contradicts the evidence? Why bother with rational explanation when name-calling, manipulation, and force are so much more effective in our current cultural and political landscape? Michael Lynch's In Praise of Reason offers a spirited defense of reason and rationality in an era of widespread skepticism -- when, for example, people reject scientific evidence about such matters as evolution, climate change, and vaccines when it doesn't jibe with their beliefs and opinions.
In recent years, skepticism about the practical value of reason has emerged even within the scientific academy. Many philosophers and psychologists claim that the reasons we give for our most deeply held views are often little more than rationalizations of our prior convictions. InPraise of Reason gives us a counterargument. Although skeptical questions about reason have a deep and interesting history, they can be answered. In particular, appeals to scientific principles of rationality are part of the essential common currency of any civil democratic society. The idea that everything is arbitrary -- that reason has no more weight than blind faith -- undermines a key principle of a civil society: that we owe our fellow citizens explanations for what we do. Reason matters -- not just for the noble ideal of truth, but for the everyday world in which we live.

Описание: In On What Matters Derek Parfit argues that there are objective moral truths, and other normative truths about what we have reasons to believe, and to want, and to do. He further argues that if he is wrong, nihilism follows, and nothing matters. In Does Anything Really Matter? leading philosophers present a fascinating set of responses to Parfit.

Описание: There has been a great deal of talk about a possible death of art. As the title of Heidegger`s "The Origin of the Work of Art" suggests, the essay challenges such talk, just as it in turn is challenged by such talk, talk that is supported by the current state of the art-world. This title demonstrates the relevance of Heidegger`s reflections.
Автор: Linzey, Andrew Название: Why Animal Suffering Matters ISBN: 0195379772 ISBN-13(EAN): 9780195379778 Издательство: Oxford Academ Рейтинг: Цена: 4450 р. Наличие на складе: Поставка под заказ.
Описание: The way we treat animals arouses strong emotions. People feel passionately about - for example - how we make animals suffer for food, science, and sport. In this book, Andrew Linzey aims to show that when analyzed impartially, the rational case for extending moral solicitude to all sentient beings is much stronger than many suppose. He invites the reader to examine the rational case and then see how it can be applied to three selected issues: hunting with dogs, fur farming, and commercial sealing. In the process of applying that case to these three contentious issues he looks at economic, legal, and political considerations, while retaining the ethical focus throughout.
