Process and Object in Contemporary Philosophy
Hardcover      ISBN: 1472525205
Faber and Goffey present students, academics, and general readers with an interest in philosophy with a collection of scholarly essays that together argue against the view that metaphysics is something that needs to be overcome in philosophical thought. The eleven contributions, from a variety of international thinkers and scholars, are organized in three parts, that advance the central thesis of the collection through an examination of crossings, or connection, disconnection, and vibration, things, such as substances, individuals, and creatures, and dramatizations, like situating, abstracting, and experimenting. Faber is a faculty member of Claremont Graduate University, California. Goffey is a faculty member of the University of Nottingham, UK. Annotation

The Allure of Things
Process and Object in Contemporary Philosophy
Paperback      ISBN: 147426588x
The Allure of Things: Process and Object in Contemporary Philosophy contests the view that metaphysics is something to be overcome. By focusing on process and object oriented ontology (OOO) and rejecting the privileging of human existence over the existence of non-human objects, this collection explores philosophy's concern with things themselves. Interest in Latour, Stengers, Whitehead, Harman and Meillassoux has prompted a resurgence of ontological questions outside the traditional subject-object framework of modern critical thought. This new collection consequently proposes a pragmatic and pluralist approach to 'modes of existence'. Drawing together an international range of leading scholars, The Allure of Things fully covers the similarities between OOO and process philosophy, and is an essential addition to the literature on metaphysics.

Metaphysics: Original Structure and Universal Rhythm
Paperback      ISBN: 0802868592
Although Erich Przywara (1889?1972) was one of the preeminent Catholic theologians of his time and a profound influence on such people as Hans Urs von Balthasar and Joseph Ratzinger, he has remained virtually unknown in North America. This volume includes Przywara?s groundbreaking Analogia Entis, originally published in 1932, and his subsequent essays on the concept analogia entis -- the analogy between God and creation -- which has currency in philosophical and theological circles today.
