Two seemingly contradictory tendencies have accompanied the development of the natural sciences in the past 150 years.

Music And Philosophy (Marquette Studies in Philosophy)
Music played a central role in the thought of existentialist philosopher Gabriel Marcel (1889-1973). One of the most tantalizing claims he made in a set of conversations with Paul Ricoeur. Employing a geographic metaphor, he claimed that philosophy was the continent of his work while his plays formed the off-shore islands; but what was deepest was...

Kant's 'Groundwork of the Metaphysics of Morals': A Critical Guide (Cambridge Critical Guides)

Its 77 Academy pages make the Groundwork of the Metaphysics of Morals a short book, certainly by Kantian standards.

The Groundwork is...
