The emergence of new obstetrical and neonatal technologies, as well as more aggressive clinical management, has significantly improved the survival of extremely low birth weight infants. This development has heightened concerns about the limits of viability. ELBW infants, weighing less than 1,000 grams and no larger than the palm of one's hand, are often described as of late twentieth century technology. Improved survivability of ELBW infants has provided opportunities for long-term follow-up. Information on their physical and emotional development contributes to (...) developing standards of practice regarding their care. (shrink)
This essay defends the view of G. C. Pande that, contrary to received opinion, "ānanda" (bliss, felicity) is accepted by Śaṅkara (ca. 788-820) as a feature of Brahman consistent with and parallel to sat (being) and cit (consciousness). It also includes a counterargument by B. N. K. Sharma, and in conclusion offers a reasoned judgment of the arguments of Śaṅkara and these two contemporary philosophers.
Despite there being deep lines of convergence between the philosophies of Alfred North Whitehead, C. S. Peirce, William James, John Dewey, and other classical American philosophers, it remains an open question whether Whitehead is a pragmatist, and conversation between pragmatists and Whitehead scholars have been limited. Indeed, it is difficult to find an anthology of classical American philosophy that includes Whitehead’s writings. These camps began separately, and so they remain. This volume questions the wisdom of that separation, exploring their connections, (...) both historical and in application. The essays in this volume embody original and creative work by leading scholars that not only furthers the understanding of American philosophy, but seeks to advance it by working at the intersection of experience and reality to incite novel and creative thought. This exploration is long overdue. Specific questions that are addressed are: Is Whitehead a pragmatist? What contrasts and affinities exist between American pragmatism and Whitehead’s thought? What new questions, strategies, and critiques emerge by juxtaposing their distinct perspectives? -/- . (shrink)
This bibliography records the initial publication of each original work by C.G. Jung, each translation, and significant revisions and expansions of both, up to 1975. In nearly every case, the compilers have examined the publications in German, French and English. Translations are recorded in Danish, Dutch, English, Finnish, French, Greek Hebrew, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Norwegian, Portuguese, Russian, Serbo-Croatian, Slovenian, Spanish, Swedish and Turkish. It is arranged according to language, with German and English first, publications being listed chronologically in each language. (...) The _General Bibliography_ lists the contents of the respective volumes of the_ Collected Works_ and the _Gesammelte Werke_, published in Switzerland, and shows the interrelation of the two editions. It also lists Jung's seminars and provides, where possible, information about the origin of works that were first conceived as lectures. An index is provided of all the titles in English and German, and all original works in the other languages. Three specialist indexes, of personal names, organizations and societies and periodicals, complete the work. The publication of the _General Bibliography_, together with the _General Index_, complete the publication of the _Collected Works of C.G. Jung _in English. (shrink)
This dissertation offers a critical examination of the model of rationality employed by the Dutch theologian G. C. Berkouwer. The study seeks to contribute to the discussions within theology and philosophy concerning the nature of rationality, the epistemic function of theological communities and traditions of discourse, and the justification and foundation of dogmatics. ;Chapter one serves as an introduction to the study and offers a rationale for why Berkouwer is an appropriate object of study. In chapter two, the author argues (...) that fideism is a type of rationality. The concept of the life-world is traced through Edmund Husserl, Alfred Schutz, and Jurgen Habermas in order to establish the relationship between the life-world and rationality. The structure of this relationship is similar to that postulated by Ludwig Wittgenstein concerning the relationship between fideism and the forms of life . On the basis of this comparison, the notion of a "reasonable fideism" is constructed. ;Chapter three is an explication of Berkouwer's religio-intellectual life-world. Berkouwer's life-world is dominated by three spheres of influence: the Neo-Calvinism of Abraham Kuyper and Herman Bavinck, an emerging continental ecumenism, and a mid-century existential subjectivism. Berkouwer seeks to correlate the communal emphases of ecumenism and the individualistic emphases of subjectivism within the resources of Neo-Calvinism. ;Chapter four offers a phenomenological description of Berkouwer's "reasonable fideism." Using William Alston's notion of "reliably engendered belief," the author describes Berkouwer's unique appeal to faith. Berkouwer is an epistemological non-foundationalist but a metaphysical realist. Berkouwer presents his reliabilism through an appeal to scripture, the Reformed confessions, and the community of believers and through a rejection of apologetics and theological prolegomena. Berkouwer's confessional approach rejects a strict rationalism while critically appropriating appeals to mystery and the Holy Spirit. ;In the concluding chapter five, the author seeks to evaluate Berkouwer's approach in the light of contemporary theology and philosophy and apply Berkouwer's model of "reasonable fideism" to the questions generated by both Reformed Epistemology and Post-liberalism.

Professor N. G. L. Hammond has of late published some of his thoughts on the activities of Philip II in 347 and 346 B.C. In addition he has treated aspects of Philip's earlier involvement in Thessalian, Thracian, and Phokian affairs. In the process he has in many instances disagreed with a number of current findings. Among those challenged are some of mine. Healthy scholarly debate is always desirable, and in this f spirit I should welcome an opportunity to contest Professor (...) Hammond's views on several points, the most important being the basic factor of methodology and the interpretation of various factual details. (shrink)
