    Abstract:

    In this article, I argue that Immanuel Kant fails to provide a satisfactory account of ‘moral debt’ in Religion within the Boundaries of Mere Reason. More precisely, he fails to answer the question of why we should assume that a debt exists in the first place. In light of recent scholarship on this area of his thought, I sketch some possible readings of Kant on the nature of moral transformation that suggest how he might account for this debt. I then argue that these accounts fail to justify …

  • Author(s):
    Maurice Blondel
    Subject(s):
    Act (Philosophy), Ethics, Life
    Abstract:

    Action was once a prominent theme in philosophical reflection. It figured prominently in Aristotelian philosophy, and the medieval Scholastics built some of their key adages around it. But by the time Maurice Blondel came to focus on it for his own philosophical reflection, it had all but disappeared from the philosophical vocabulary. It is no longer possible or legitimate to ignore action in philosophy as it was in France when Blondel appeared on the scene in 1882, when at the age of 21 he f…

  • Author(s):
    John Henry Cardinal Newman
    Subject(s):
    Church of England--Sermons, Sermons, English--19th century
    Abstract:

    These remarkable sermons by John Henry Newman (1801-1890) were first published at Oxford in 1843, two years before he was received into the Roman Catholic Church. Published here in its entirety is the third edition of 1872 for which Newman added an additional sermon, bracketed notes, and, importantly, a comprehensive, condensed Preface.

    In her introduction, noted Newman scholar Mary Katherine Tillman considers the volume as an integral whole, showing how all of the sermons systematically rel…

  • Author(s):
    Thomas A. Lewis
    Subject(s):
    Religion--Philosophy, Ethics, Liberty, Tradition (Philosophy), Philosophical anthropology
    Abstract:

    Freedom and Tradition in Hegel stands at the intersection of three vital currents in contemporary ethics: debates over philosophical anthropology and its significance for ethics, reevaluations of tradition and modernity, and a resurgence of interest in Hegel. Thomas A. Lewis engages these three streams of thought in light of Hegel’s recently published Vorlesungen über die Philosophie des Geistes. Drawing extensively on these lectures, Lewis addresses an important lacuna in Hegelian scho…

    Joseph P. Wawrykow
    Subject(s):
    Grace (Theology), Merit (Christianity)
    Abstract:

    Offering a fresh approach to one significant aspect of the soteriology of Thomas Aquinas, God’s Grace and Human Action brings new scholarship and insights to the issue of merit in Aquinas’s theology. Through a careful historical analysis, Joseph P. Wawrykow delineates the precise function of merit in Aquinas’s account of salvation. Wawrykow accounts for the changes in Thomas’s teaching on merit from the early Scriptum on the Sentences of Peter Lombard to the later Summa theo…

    Abstract:

    The twentieth-century Dutch philosopher Herman Dooyeweerd (1894-1977) left behind an impressive canon of philosophical works and has continued to influence a scholarly community in Europe and North America, which has extended, critiqued, and applied his thought in many academic fields. Jonathan Chaplin introduces Dooyeweerd for the first time to many English readers by critically expounding Dooyeweerd’s social and political thought and by exhibiting its pertinence to contemporary civil so…

  • Author(s):
    William H. Brenner
    Subject(s):
    Philosophy, Logic
    Abstract:

    The dual purpose of this volume–to provide a distinctively philosophical introduction to logic, as well as a logic-oriented approach to philosophy–makes this book a unique and worthwhile primary text for logic and/or philosophy courses. Logic and Philosophy covers a variety of elementary formal and informal types of reasoning, including a chapter on traditional logic that culminates in a treatment of Aristotle’s philosophy of science; a truth-functional logic chapter that examines Wit…

  • Author(s):
    David Walsh
    Subject(s):
    Transcendence (Philosophy), Philosophical anthropology
    Abstract:

    Readers expecting a traditional philosophical work will be surprised and delighted by David Walsh’s Politics of the Person as the Politics of Being, his highly original reflection on the transcendental nature of the person. A specialist in political theory, Walsh breaks new ground in this volume, arguing, as he says in the introduction, “that the person is transcendence, not only as an aspiration, but as his or her very reality. Nothing is higher. That is what _Politics of the Pers…
