The Reconciliation Of Science And Religion In Symbolo-Fideism, Shirley Brown Moon Jan 1968

The Reconciliation Of Science And Religion In Symbolo-Fideism, Shirley Brown Moon

Wayne State University Dissertations

From the publication in 1859 of On the Origin of Species by means of Natural Selection, religion was in open warfare against science. By the end of the century the war was not going well for religion. Biology, anthropology, archeology, the "higher criticism" united in an attack on Christian premises, while "applied science" — technology-provided, the materialistic comforts which made Christian promises utopian and unnecessary. The reaction of some Protestant and Catholic leaders to this threat from science was a retreat into funda­mentalism. Others hastened to show that the recent discoveries were not really in conflict with religious truths at ...

Studies In Situation Ethics, Charles Allen Hampton Jan 1968

Studies In Situation Ethics, Charles Allen Hampton

Honors Theses

"The New Morality is Here!" proclaimed a news magazine several years ago, and with such an announcement cam acceptance, rejection, opinions, reactions, controversy, and great debates. Since the announcement, theologians, pastors, philosophers, educators, and even common men have had much to say about "Situationsethik." Unfortunately, many of the opinions offered are those of uniformed closed-minded individuals who give a negative review of situational ethics.One commentator said that the new morality will "offend some, excite many, and challenge all!" From my general observation, the new morality seems to excite and challenge the informed persons while offending the uniformed. This last ...

Xenophon's Teleology, Francis R. Bliss Jan 1968

Xenophon's Teleology, Francis R. Bliss

The Society for Ancient Greek Philosophy Newsletter

There is considerable evidence that the later Greeks and even more the Romans bypassed Aristotle and Plato in their treatment of teleology. Theirs was to be the age of immanent deity, of epiphany, of astrology, of credo quia absurdum. The Stoic Pronoia, which we have in fullest form in Cicero's De Natura Deorum 2, closely reflects the version we have in Xenophon, even transferring elements from his proof of the existence of deity to the proof of pronoia. Also, Xenophon's double treatment of his theme, stressing the cosmic in one chapter and the human in the other, initiated ...

Aristotle's Theory Of Principles: A Rationalistic-Empirical Bipolarity, Joseph J. Romano Jan 1968

Aristotle's Theory Of Principles: A Rationalistic-Empirical Bipolarity, Joseph J. Romano

Bryn Mawr College Dissertations and Theses

Primarily, this paper attempts to analyze Aristotle's notion of "principle" as it is uniquely applied throughout his works. "Principle" is a basic notion; and it is, moreover, the basic notion in Aristotle's philosophy. The purpose here is to establish as precisely as possible the meaning of 'principle' and the role that it plays in Aristotelian thought. It is shown that the meaning of "principle" involves a certain bipolar tension which strains between a logico-epistemic pole and an on tic pole. This tension grounds a philosophy which constantly vacillates between a rationalistic idealism and an empirically oriented naturalism.

Inform Prof Landmann and Prof Huebner, cancel the hotel reservation and read the following final message to my class on tuesday 1pm: I am sorry that I cannot give what Telegram 2 would have been my last lecture to you.

Turning back to the empiricist methodology and demand for theoretical unification I would ...

Knowledge Of Atoms And Void In Epicureanism, David J. Furley Dec 1967

Knowledge Of Atoms And Void In Epicureanism, David J. Furley

The Society for Ancient Greek Philosophy Newsletter

There is an obvious paradox in the theories of the Atomists. If knowledge comes to us by means of sensation, how are we to explain the atomist's knowledge of the basic propositions of his special theory: that the world consists of void, which is called 'the intangible', and atoms, which are said to be imperceptibly small? Epicurus' method was to set up a pair of contradictories - either there is a void or there is not, either matter is infinitely divisible or it is not - and then to present an argument for rejecting one of them.


Mind's Commitment To The Real: Parmenides B8.34ff, Alexander P.D. Mourelatos Dec 1967

Mind's Commitment To The Real: Parmenides B8.34ff, Alexander P.D. Mourelatos

The Society for Ancient Greek Philosophy Newsletter

It is through an analysis of this passage that I can explain most clearly and directly a certain conception of the relation of mind to reality for which I also find evidence in other texts, in some of the characteristic aspects and themes of Parmenicles' poem, and which I consider philosophically and historically important.,

The Evolution Of Sacred Dance In The Judeo-Christian Tradition, Jade Luerssen '67 Jan 1967

The Evolution Of Sacred Dance In The Judeo-Christian Tradition, Jade Luerssen '67

Honors Projects

The universe is permeated by rhythm, harmony , and patterned movement--the movement of stars through the galaxy, the rotation of the earth, the rising and setting of the sun, the seasons, the cycle of birth, growth and death. Therefore, it is perfectly natural that man respond deeply and significantly to these ordered rhythms that make up his life, his world , and his universe .

Early Kierkegaard And The Zen Koan: A Study In Religous Experience, Gregory R. Dell '67 Jan 1967

Early Kierkegaard And The Zen Koan: A Study In Religous Experience, Gregory R. Dell '67

Honors Projects

Religous experience is a puzzling phenomenon . It has appeared extensively throughout the history of man as a primary element in shaping his culture....I will try to examine the nature of the religious experience as it is conceived by the existential theologian Soren Kierkegaard and the Lin Chi or Rinzai school of Zen Buddhism. Further, I hope to point out the similarities of their methods in attaining this level of experience.


The Concept Of Spirit As Related To The Knowledge Of God In The Thought Of Paul Tillich And Nicholas Berdyaev, Wilbur W. Brannon Jan 1967

The Concept Of Spirit As Related To The Knowledge Of God In The Thought Of Paul Tillich And Nicholas Berdyaev, Wilbur W. Brannon

Graduate Theses

The problem of knowing God has not been solely a twentieth century phenomenon, but the current "death of God" theology has brought the problem into focus within the Christian community in terms of secular involvement. A "Christian agnosticism" has emerged from within the Church criticizing archaic ecclesiastical structures and confessions. Those criticisms have been leveled by radical theologians, represented by Altizer, Hamilton, and Van Buren, who have denied for humanity a living God and consequently a knowledge of God.

Modern man has suffered the loss of life's meaning and its supportive Reality. "God", therefore, has become a term without ...

Horizon, Objectivity And Reality In The Physical Sciences, Patrick A. Heelan Jan 1967

Horizon, Objectivity And Reality In The Physical Sciences, Patrick A. Heelan

Research Resources

An exploration of the utility of a phenomenological style of philosophizing about nature called the analysis of horizons. The name refers to a banner of philosophical reflection practiced by many philosophers mostly of European origin who have been influenced by the Husserlian tradition, like Heidegger, de Waelhens, Gurwitsch, Merleau-Ponty, Luijpen, to mention but a few. To philosophize about science in a phenomenological vein, one must begin with a phenomenological description of the form of life of scientific research, because it is only within a form of life, that is, within a way of experiencing objects, that objects present themselves as ...
