    Anaximander, the First Metaphysician.George Bosworth Burch - 1949 - Review of Metaphysics 3 (2):137 - 160.
    Anaximander wrote a book which was catalogued by the librarians of Alexandria under the title Πέρι Φύσεως--the first of many books so called. It is the first known philosophical work, in fact the first known prose work, in Greek. Of this book only one sentence is extant: "Into that from which beings have their origin they also have their passing away, by necessity; for they render to each other retribution and atonement for their injustice in the order of time." But (...)

  6. Alternative Goals in Religion: Love, Freedom, Truth.George Bosworth Burch - 1972 - Mcgill-Queen's University Press.
    "Religions," Mahatma Gandhi once said, "are different roads converging to the same point." But in this stimulating assessment of Christianity, Buddhism, and Vedanta, Professor Burch develops the revolutionary theory that religions, starting from the same point, take divergent roads to different goals incompatible one with the other. Whereas Gandhi asks, "What does it matter that we take different roads so long as we reach the same goal?" Dr. Burch asks, "What does it matter that in taking different roads we reach (...)

    Comments on Mr. Anderson's Theses.George Bosworth Burch, Richard Robinson & Joseph Owens - 1952 - Review of Metaphysics 5 (3):465 - 469.
    3. The third proposition seems to imply that outside metaphysical analogy there are only different degrees of "univocity." This would mean that things expressed according to the Aristotelian πρὸς ἕν relations, or in Scholastic terminology "analogy of attribution," should be classed as basically "univocal." This seems to be against the traditional usage [[sic-corrected duplicate line/portion of sentence missing]] organism are healthy in a way that is basically univocal, just because the reference in all cases is to one and the same (...)

    Medieval PhilosophyA History of Philosophy, Vol. II, Mediaeval Philosophy Augustine to ScotusA Short History of Western Philosophy in the Middle AgesTexte seiner philosophischen Schriften, nach de Ausgabe von Paris 1514, sowie nach der Drucklegung von Basel 1565Reformatie en Scholastiek in de Wijsbegeerte, Boek I, Het Grieksche Voorspel. [REVIEW]George Bosworth Burch - 1952 - Review of Metaphysics 5 (3):455-464.
    The second volume of Father Copleston's History of Philosophy covers the period from Augustine through Duns Scotus. Of its 51 chapters Aquinas has eleven, Augustine and Duns Scotus six each, Bonaventura five, Erigena two, and Dionysius, Anselm, William of Auvergne, and Albertus one each, while other philosophers are treated more briefly. The author's point of view is strictly and explicitly Thomist, and the book is intended primarily as a textbook for use in Catholic seminaries. But it is written with such (...)

    The Hindu Concept of Existence.George Bosworth Burch - 1966 - The Monist 50 (1):44-54.
    The Hindu approach to philosophy tends to be epistemological rather than ontological. Metaphysics is rational analysis of experience rather than rational analysis of being. Being is grouped with consciousness and bliss, in the classic formula, as one of the characteristics of absolute experience. In ordinary experience the problem is to distinguish between those contents which both appear and exist and so are real and those which appear but do not exist and so are illusory. Existence is to be sought within (...)

    The Nature of Life.George Bosworth Burch - 1951 - Review of Metaphysics 5 (1):1 - 10.
    Even inanimate bodies, to be sure, have a certain amount of freedom. Insofar as they are definite things they maintain their integrity against the tendency to be reabsorbed into the Indefinite. Even a gas preserves its mass, a liquid preserves also its volume, and a solid preserves even its shape, in the face of a hostile environment. But the motion of an inanimate body is determined by the outer forces acting on it. This fact is formulated by the classical laws (...)

    The Place of Revelation in Philosophical Thought.George Bosworth Burch - 1962 - Review of Metaphysics 15 (3):396 - 408.
    Some Christian philosophers, notably Tertullian, have gloried in this absurdity, finding in its very irrationality a sign of the dogma's truth. But most Christian philosophers, following Augustine, have tried to find some reconciliation between reason and revelation. The history of medieval philosophy is the history of the attempt to make the revealed truths rationally intelligible. The attempt was a failure. As we proceed chronologically from Anselm of Canterbury to Abelard, Thomas Aquinas, Duns Scotus, and William of Occam, we find the (...)

    Tertium Organum, published in Russian in 1912, is the most interesting and important of these works. The title is explained as meaning that the book is about "the third canon of thought," namely the mystical, which has always existed, although for us moderns it appears as a third method after the deductive and inductive methods described by Aristotle and Bacon. The English translation by Nicholas Bessaraboff and Claude Bragdon was published by Manas Press in 1920, and again, revised, by Knopf (...)
