Philosophy (139 Books)


Philosophy as a category is the study of general and fundamental problems, such as those connected with reality, existence, knowledge, values, reason, mind, and language. Philosophy is distinguished from other ways of addressing such problems by its critical, generally systematic approach and its reliance on rational argument. The word "philosophy" comes from the Greek philosophia, which literally means "love of wisdom".

Sacred Books

By: M. Winternitz

THE period covered by the inception, the publication, and the completion of the Sacred Books of the East exactly coincides with the thirty-four years that I have spent in Oxford. When I matriculated, Professor Max Muller, the editor of the series, was about to begin work on the first volume, which appeared while I was still an undergraduate. I lost no time in making his acquaintance, for it was the influence of one of his works that had stimulated me to begin under Pro...

Habeltt sua lata libelli-not only after they have been published, but sometimes even before they are printed. It was in the spring of 1894 that the late Professor Max Muller first suggested to me that I should compile a General Index of the names and subject-matter for the complete series of the Sacred Books of the East. Such an Index, he thought, would be a great help to all students of the Sacred Books of tile East, and of the greatest value for the study of the history of religions.

Flare : Opinions: Opinions

By: Ankur Mutreja

Opinions are like flare, which can turn either way: they can spread like wild fire or encapsulate themselves within the bounds of personal integrity, and thus illuminate. I started writing opinions in the late 2008 through my blogs. I admit at times I did go wild with unsubstantiated accusations and surmises, leading to risky speculations and irresponsible opinions. Recently, I published a comprehensive book of my writings entitled "Writings @ Ankur Mutreja", and the pre...

Bild och Tanke

By: Ph.D. Fredrik Lång

BILD OCH TANKE (Image and Thought)is moving in the border area between philosophy and art; follows their tracks through history from archaic Greece to the 20th century and Marcel Duchamp's art. It is this interaction between visual and intellectual reproduction as the image and understanding of our time and of history has been created.

Konsten är, som jag ser det, den spegel människan ställt upp framför sig för att bekräfta sanningen i den förståelse hon har av sin tillvaro. Konsten berättar hur det är eller hur det har varit att vara människa. I bekräftelsen ser hon inte bara att uppfattningen hon har om sig själv är sann (sådan är jag, sådan är min omgivning; sådan ser min mänsklighet ut), utan bekräftelsen styrker också den uppfattning hon har av riktigheten i sin aktuella livsform. Och det är det, ...

Kant wrote: "A pure reason faith is the guide or compass, which the speculative thinker based on his rational quarreling (Vernunftstreifereien) in the field of supersensible objects, man of common but (morally) sound reason but his way, and probably in theoretical as practical point of view, the whole purpose of his may prefigure determination entirely appropriate, and it is this rational faith, which must be placed at the foundation of every other faith, yes every revelation (Offenbarung)."
