Autonomy And The Self from the Author: Michael Kühler. This volume addresses the complex interplay between the conditions of an agent’s personal autonomy and the constitution of her self in light of two influential background assumptions: a libertarian thesis according to which it is essential for personal autonomy to be able to choose freely how one’s self is shaped, on the one hand, and a line of thought following especially the seminal work of Harry Frankfurt according to which personal autonomy necessarily rests on an already sufficiently shaped self, on the other hand. Given this conceptual framework, a number of influential aspects within current debate can be addressed in a new and illuminating light: accordingly, the volume’s contributions range from 1) discussing fundamental conceptual interconnections between personal autonomy and freedom of the will, 2) addressing the exact role and understanding of different personal traits, e.g. Frankfurt’s notion of volitional necessities, commitments to norms and ideals, emotions, the phenomenon of weakness of will, and psychocorporeal aspects, 3) and finally taking into account social influences, which are discussed in terms of their ability to buttress, to weaken, or even to serve as necessary preconditions of personal autonomy and the forming of one’s self. The volume thus provides readers with an extensive and most up-to-date discussion of various influential strands of current philosophical debate on the topic. It is of equal interest to all those already engaged in the debate as well as to readers trying to get an up-to-date overview or looking for a textbook to use in courses.

The Ethics Of Authenticity from the Author: Charles Taylor. Everywhere we hear talk of decline, of a world that was better once, maybe fifty years ago, maybe centuries ago, but certainly before modernity drew us along its dubious path. While some lament the slide of Western culture into relativism and nihilism and others celebrate the trend as a liberating sort of progress, Charles Taylor calls on us to face the moral and political crises of our time, and to make the most of modernity's challenges. At the heart of the modern malaise, according to most accounts, is the notion of authenticity, of self-fulfillment, which seems to render ineffective the whole tradition of common values and social commitment. Though Taylor recognizes the dangers associated with modernity's drive toward self realization, he is not as quick as others to dismiss it. He calls for a freeze on cultural pessimism. In a discussion of ideas and ideologies from Friedrich Nietzsche to Gail Sheehy, from Allan Bloom to Michel Foucault, Taylor sorts out the good from the harmful in the modern cultivation of an authentic self. He sets forth the entire network of thought and morals that link our quest for self-creation with our impulse toward self-fashioning, and shows how such efforts must be conducted against an existing set of rules, or a gridwork of moral measurement. Seen against this network, our modern preoccupations with expression, rights, and the subjectivity of human thought reveal themselves as assets, not liabilities. By looking past simplistic, one-sided judgments of modern culture, by distinguishing the good and valuable from the socially and politically perilous, Taylor articulates the promise of our age. His bracing and provocative book gives voice to the challenge of modernity, and calls on all of us to answer it.

In Search Of Authenticity from the Author: Jacob Golomb. Great philosophers such as Kierkegaard, Nietzsche and Sartre have clearly been preoccupied by the possibility of authenticity. In this study, Jacob Golomb looks closely at the literature and writings of these philosophers in his analysis of their ethics. Golomb's writings shows his passionate commitment to the quest for the authenticity - particularly in our climate of post-modern scepticism. He argues that existentialism is all the more pertinent and relevant today when set against the general disillusionment which characterises the late twentieth century. This book is invaluable reading for those who have been fascinated by figures like Camus's Meursault, Sartre's Matthieu and Nietzsche's Zarathustra.

The Rationality Of Emotion from the Author: Ronald De Sousa. In this urbane and witty book, Ronald de Sousa disputes the widespread notion that reason and emotion are natural antagonists. He argues that emotions are a kind of perception, that their roots in the paradigm scenarios in which they are learned give them an essentially dramatic structure, and that they have a crucial role to-play in rational beliefs, desires, and decisions by breaking the deadlocks of pure reason.The book's twelve chapters take up the following topics: alternative models of mind and emotion; the relation between evolutionary, physiological, and social factors in emotions; a taxonomy of objects of emotions; assessments of emotions for correctness and rationality; the regulation by emotions of logical and practical reasoning; emotion and time; the mechanism of emotional self-deception; the ethics of laughter; and the roles of emotions in the conduct of life. There is also an illustrative interlude, in the form of a lively dialogue about the ideology of love, jealousy, and sexual exclusiveness.Ronald de Sousa teaches philosophy at the University of Toronto. A Bradford Book.

Authenticity from the Author: Ilia Ilo Kavaja. About the book This volume generates authentic inspiration for both mental and emotional motivation. When being equipped with such credible spirit, the reader will feel confident for taking applicable steps especially during the arousing critical situations that require proper attention and seriousness. Although the arrangement of courtship and the overall sentimental matters of the heart are emphasized as the main subject of this volume, the fundamental human character and the projection of a continuous moral personality along with it would have gained great authority and priority in behalf of true prospective establishment in proportion with divine disposition and emotional stability. Because of deep human imperfection and uncontrollable demonic activity, we are influenced by the chaos of immoral, lawless, and rebellious behavior, which is getting worse than any other time in human history. That is why, all the ethical and authentic subjects in this volume bring to light the expected logic and the common sense that has lost its balance or equilibrium within human conscience. Today, both parents and children are confused for being decisive and selective of which direction to take regarding moral matters! As a result, by dividing the faculty of human thinking from the emotional state of its original dependency, this present day veiled society finds it easier to blind the mind and subdue the emotive condition of the figurative heart to the point where is no recovery. We see the growing rebelliousness between children against their parent, which is heading toward an inferior state. Such laughable position of the young is ironically considered as directive or appropriate for acceptability, despite its nameless and ranging bitter consequences.Subsequently, the themes of this volume will assist the mind to see with clarity the true moral standing designed for the heart to accept and apply willingly with satisfying appropriateness - the extensive influence derive from the core of such accurate knowledge, unambiguous understanding and indisputable wisdom. Definitely, unless the heart is touched, the incoherent disposition of the young ones cannot be moved progressively toward the dignity of humility, understanding, sympathy, credibility, dependability and stability. This overall disposition has to be prepared with regard to his or her character in a way that, such fundamental state to preserve durably in pact the projection of a new personality both morally and psychologically.The consequential results of fornication preserve a painful chain that makes us responsible not only based on conscience, but also with regard to the responsiveness of divine accountability and selectivity for either refusal or acceptability. As this is a critically imperative step on which side to stand, here is the treasure where the mind will find an established station for obtaining the path of true perception, credible knowledge, deep understanding as well as the trustworthy direction considering it sentimentally, emotionally and spiritually. In addition, as human ambition is projected toward the intent of getting as much as possible out of a short lifespan, this volume will fortify the fulfilling conviction of a different aspiration instead. This aim acts in harmony with the originality of human conscience and the fundamental purpose of our existence.

Heidegger Authenticity And The Self from the Author: Denis McManus. Though Heidegger’s Being and Time is often cited as one of the most important philosophical works of the last hundred years, its Division Two has received relatively little attention. This outstanding collection corrects that, examining some of the central themes of Division Two and their wide-ranging and challenging implications. An international team of leading philosophers explore the crucial notions that articulate Heidegger’s concept of authenticity, including death, anxiety, conscience, guilt, resolution and temporality. In doing so, they clarify the bearing of Division Two’s reflections on our understanding of intentionality, normativity, responsibility, autonomy and selfhood. These discussions raise important questions about how we may need to rethink the morals of Division One of Being and Time, the broader project to which that book was devoted, the shaping influence of figures such as Aristotle and Kierkegaard, as well as Heidegger’s relationship with his contemporaries and successors. Essential reading for students and scholars of Heidegger’s thought, and anyone interested in key debates in phenomenology, ethics, metaphilosophy and philosophy of mind.
