Description du livre Forgotten Books. Paperback. État : New. Paperback. 368 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.1in. x 1.0in.But, even so, this common naturalism is of a very vague and general sort, capable of covering an immense diversity of opinion. It is an admission of a direction more than a clearly formulated belief. It is less a philosophical system than a recognition of the impressive implications of the physical and the biological sciences. A nd, not to be outdone, psychology has swelled the chorus by pointing out the organic roots of behavior and of consciousness. But just because an adequate naturalism has never been formulated and defended, we find that many who are naturalistic in their general outlook are yet sharp in their criticism of naturalism as a philosophy Why is there this apparent contradiction Why is there this conservative withholding of allegiance to naturalism on the part of the majority of philosophers Why is naturalism insistently defined in so narrow a way that it becomes a thing of straw easily torn to pieces This situation has awakened my interest and I wish to say a few words about it. To define naturalism in a narrow and indefensible way and then to tear it to pieces may be a pleasant enough dialectical exercise, but surely it is not consonant with the serious aim of philosophy to dis cover the truth about nature and ourselves as children of nature. There is something childish, rhetorical and merely verbal in this procedure, something which smacks of the lecture-room instead of the laboratory. Such lecturers are in the habit of making remarks such as the following: No philosopher to-day is a materialist, A the ism has been completely discredited, No one to-day knows what life is, etc. The vicious effect of such dicta is the encouragement of obscurantism. But among the more serious and competent thinkers there is the effort to work out exact definitions and to do justice to the actual content of both science and philosophy.

Description du livre Forgotten Books, United States, 2017. Paperback. État : New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Evolutionary Naturalism I cannot close without a word as to the situation in philosophy to-day. The critical realist is of the opinion that there is far more agreement in the ranks than is realized. It is not his purpose to found a new philosophical sect. Let me take this opportunity to say that it is his opinion that critical realism does justice to the insights of both pragmatism and neo-realism. I have tried to develop this thesis in Chapter IV. I have hopes that Evolutionary Naturalism will be taken by pragmatists and neo - realists, alike, as a constructive attempt at the metaphysical development of that new pluralism, as Professor Woodbridge calls it, toward which they are both working. The present work is the fulfilment of the promise made in my first book some five years ago that I would subsequently deal with the categories. Perhaps I did not fully realize then how much I was undertaking. This book was in substance completed two years ago, though there have since been minor alterations. I take this opportunity of promising a third book to deal with human life, that is, with values and institutions. I wish to make acknowledgment to my wife for her helpfulness and loyalty; also, to the Open Court Publishing Company for their cour tesy and careful attention to all those details which fall upon the broad shoulders of publishers.

Description du livre Forgotten Books, United States, 2016. Paperback. État : New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Excerpt from Evolutionary Naturalism To paraphrase a saying which gained considerable notoriety a decade ago in the field of politics, we are all naturalists now. But, even so, this common naturalism is of a very vague and general sort, capable of covering an immense diversity of opinion. It is an admission of a direction more than a clearly formulated belief. It is less a philosophical system than a recognition of the impressive implications of the physical and the biological sciences. And, not to be outdone, psychology has swelled the chorus by pointing out the organic roots of behavior and of consciousness. But just because an adequate naturalism has never been formulated and defended, we find that many who are naturalistic in their general outlook are yet sharp in their criticism of naturalism as a philosophy Why is there this apparent contradiction? Why is there this conservative withholding of allegiance to naturalism on the part of the majority of philosophers? Why is naturalism insistently defined in so narrow a way that it becomes a thing of straw easily torn to pieces? This situation has awakened my interest and I wish to say a few words about it. To define naturalism in a narrow and indefensible way and then to tear it to pieces may be a pleasant enough dialectical exercise, but surely it is not consonant with the serious aim of philosophy to discover the truth about nature and ourselves as children of nature. There is something childish, rhetorical and merely verbal in this procedure, something which smacks of the lecture-room instead of the laboratory. Such lecturers are in the habit of making remarks such as the following: No philosopher to-day is a materialist, Atheism has been completely discredited, No one to-day knows what life is, etc. The vicious effect of such dicta is the encouragement of obscurantism. But among the more serious and competent thinkers there is the effort to work out exact definitions and to do justice to the actual content of both science and philosophy. Why, then, do so many of these, also, attack naturalism? The reason is, I think, twofold. First in order comes the recognition of the crying defects of the naturalism of a few decades ago.
