Seller ID: 10083

ISBN: 093277640X


Modern science, with its causal and quantitative methods, has provided the basis for our technologically-driven society. But the technological prowess that has brought us incredible wealth and power has also led to the exploitation and degradation of nature. In addition, the reductive methods of modern science have left us without any scientific understanding of our own immediate experience: of the creative human spirit, or of the qualitative richness and dynamic wholene...

Publisher: United Kingdom, Floris Books: 2012

Seller ID: 12338

ISBN: 0863159273


b/w diagrams The history of western metaphysics from Plato onwards is dominated by the dualism of being and appearance. What something really is (its true being) is believed to be hidden behind the 'mere appearances' through which it manifests. Twentieth-century European thinkers radically overturned this way of thinking. 'Appearance' began to be taken seriously, with the observer participating in the dynamic event of perception. In this important book, Henri Borto... View more info

New! Published September 2017 Is it our brain that produces consciousness? Many people, including most scientists, hold such a belief, based on a purely materialistic concept of the world. Such a worldview sees the brain as a kind of biological computer. However, modern research shows that our experiences—especially during childhood and youth—shape the circuits of our brain and even stimulate the brain to grow. Thus, to an extent, we shape our own brain... View more info

Seller ID: 10084

By the time Goethe's Theory of Colours appeared in 1810, the wavelength theory of light and color had been firmly established. To Goethe, the theory was the result of mistaking an incidental result for an elemental principle. Far from pretending to a knowledge of physics, he insisted that such knowledge was an actual hindrance to understanding. He based his conclusions exclusively upon exhaustive personal observation of the phenomena of color. Of his own theory, Goethe w... View more info
