Aesthetic Experience and Moral Vision in Plato Kant and Murdoch

Turning to Kant's view, the selfless self is the one that is most human—we might say, the part that is strengthened through Achtung—and it will value the moral law. From Murdoch's point of view, the selfless self is the one into which ...

This book addresses how Plato, Kant, and Iris Murdoch (each in different ways) view the connection aesthetic experience has to morality. While offering an examination of Iris Murdoch’s philosophy, it analyses deeply the suggestive links (as well as essential distinctions) between Plato’s and Kant’s philosophies. Meredith Trexler Drees considers not only Iris Murdoch’s concept of unselfing, but also its relationship with Kant’s view of Achtung and Plato’s view of Eros. In addition, Trexler Drees suggests an extended, and partially amended, version of Murdoch’s view, arguing that it is more compatible with a religious way of life than Murdoch herself realized. This leads to an expansion of the overall argument to include Kant’s affirmation of religion as an area of life that can be improved through Plato’s and Murdoch’s vision of how being good and being beautiful can be part of the same life-task.

Global Perspectives on Spirituality and Education

In recent decades, and around the world, much attention has been given to the role of spirituality in the education of children and young people. While educationalists share many common goals and values in nurturing the spiritual lives of children and young people, national and regional cultures, religions and politics have impacted on the approaches scholars and practitioners have adopted in their investigations and practices. The different contexts across nations and regions mean that educators face quite distinct conditions in which to frame their approaches to spiritual education and research, and the nature and impact of these differences is not yet understood. This book brings together thinkers from around the globe and sets them the task of explaining how their research on children’s spirituality and education has been shaped by the historical, cultural, religious and political contexts of the geographic region in which they work. The book presents contributions in three sections – Europe and Israel, Australasia, and The Americas– and concludes with a chapter highlighting what is common and what is contextually unique about global approaches to spirituality and education.

The Great Prajna Paramita Sutra, taught by the Buddha in sixteen assemblies in four places during twenty-two years and recorded posthumously by his disciples in six hundred fascicles with approximately five million words, is regarded as the largest canon in Buddhism. The translator has worked on this sutra since 2008 and has completed the whole text. The present version is, so far, the only complete presentation of this great sutra in English translated from the Chinese Da Bo Re Bo Luo Mi Duo Jing (600 Juan, or 600 fascicles), rendered from Sanskrit about 1,350 years ago (from 660 to 663) by Xuanzang (Hsüantsang, c. 602–664). This English translation appears as a set of thirty hardbound volumes, with twenty fascicles in each volume. A translator's introduction and an extensive glossary of terms are included in volume 1. The Great Prajna Paramita Sutra is important not only because of its extensive teaching but also because it demonstrates what the great bodhisattva, the great bodhisattva path of cultivation, and the great bodhisattva vehicle are. It also indicates how one should cultivate and learn to become a bodhisattvam -- and eventually a Buddha – transcending self-interest to reach a state of emptiness, selflessness, and nonattachment. This sutra depicts, manifests, and elaborates an entire learning process leading to Buddhahood. Regardless of where you are on the path to enlightenment, you will be nourished by the parables and dialogues within.

Manabi and Japanese Schooling: Beyond Learning in the Era of Globalisation considers the theory and practices behind the Japanese concept of Manabi, particularly as the progressive concept of learning in the globalised world. It seeks to provide educational visions of Manabi as an alternative concept of learning in the era of post-globalisation. The authors derive different perspectives in Manabi from Eastern philosophy, clarifying and comparing with learning and Bildung to give alternative educational discourses. It considers the idea of Confucius and Taoism and studies the practice of minna, characterising it as a cooperative and peaceful problem-solving method. Addressing the trend of ‘learnification’ and its contribution to educational reform, it explores the impacts, conflicts and difficulties of introducing learner-centred education into East Asian educational settings as well as the potential of Manabi as an effective tool for all types of learning. Expertly written and researched, this book includes a foreword by Gert Biesta and is a valuable resource for researchers, academics and postgraduate students in the field of educational philosophy, educational theory and Eastern philosophy.

The thesis of this work is that in both modern Japanese philosophy and American pragmatism there has been a paradigm shift from a monological concept of self as an isolated "I" to a dialogical concept of the social self as an "I-Thou relation," including a communication model of self as individual-society interaction. It is also shown for both traditions all aesthetic, moral, and religious values are a function of the social self arising through communicative interaction between the individual and society. However, at the same time this work critically examines major ideological conflicts arising between the social self theories of modern Japanese philosophy and American pragmatism with respect to such problems as individualism versus collectivism, freedom versus determinism, liberalism versus communitarianism, and relativism versus objectivism.

"Abundance Creed is more than just a book of poetry; it explores the search for meaning in today's changing world. It is thought provoking and inspires the reader through the reflections of the author, Julius Smith. It is a must read for those who value a healthy attitude towards life. As a consequence of his understanding of life issues Abundance Creed connects past history with the present-day struggle of African-Americans. Smith has the exceptional gift of crafting divinely inspired, creative poetry that is both sagacious, perceptive and readable. Julius Smith's sensitivity to the critical, fundamental, timeless issues of the human experience, his depth of insight and analysis is not only remarkable, but it is phenomenal. His reflections are inspirational and useful for those seeking to delve into the subjects of abundance, the current God ordained role of the family, and the painful history (past and current effect) of slavery in America. Smith is a perceptive and serious interpreter of life, as a result Abundance Creed breathes a sense of true compassion, discernment and spirituality which are the inner qualities of Smith himself." Reverend Dr. Almetha Thomas, ordained minister, Licensed Clinical Therapist by the American Association of Pastoral Counselors (retired) "As we walk through life we are gifted with an Abundance of memories. The good ones are like a path of light, the bad ones are shaded by the Reflection of darkness. The images we see in the mirror are Family who develop our wings and allow us to fly. Time represents the pace of our journey, to allow one to experience the quintessential steps of life. The Abundance Creed is well worth the read, and holding on to as a life reference." Quincy Smith, Hollywood Actor "In the Abundance Creed Reverend Smith's in-depth knowledge of the human spirit, his grasp of compassion, justice, and freedom surfaces throughout his poetry. His focus on the American experience points to democracy. I am amazed at his ability to capture feelings, fears, hopes and dreams by connecting words, phrases and sentences. He is innovative, has an extroverted style and quite frankly, the material is inspirational and a joy to read. Right on Brother!" Reverend Richard D. Winn, Sr., Superintendent, The Griffin District, North Georgia Conference of The United Methodist Church

We are said to be suffering a narcissism epidemic when the need for collective action seems more pressing than ever. Selfishness and selflessness address the ‘proper’ and ‘improper’ relationship between one’s self and others. The work they do during periods of social instability and cultural change is probed in this original, interdisciplinary collection. Contributions range from an examination of how these concepts animated the eighteenth-century anti-slavery campaigners to dissecting the way middle-class mothers’ experiences illustrate gendered struggles over how much and to whom one is morally obliged to give.
