    The Dilemma of Modernity: Philosophy, Culture, and Anti-Culture.Gerald J. Galgan - 1988 - Review of Metaphysics 42 (1):132-134.
    Caught in a dilemma-namely, the decontextualization and negation of its early interpretive schematism which served as the sole ground for a free society--modernity is presently losing its legitimacy, its fidelity to individual freedom, the "core of nondialectical humanism," which Cahoone attempts to isolate. In part 1, he argues that the "self-negating strain" of modern philosophical activity is a "methodological or systematic dualism" endemic to "subjectivism," viz., the belief that the distinction between the non-subjective and the subjective is fundamental for any (...)

    The Critique of Pure Modernity: Hegel, Heidegger and After.Gerald J. Galgan - 1989 - Review of Metaphysics 42 (3):628-629.
    Kolb's purpose is to dispel a practical and theoretical illusion--promoted by modernity about its own uniqueness as a unified and unifying constellation of meanings which wholly defines us--and to put modernity "in its place" within that sustaining and limiting context which makes it possible, which cannot be described in "standard modern terms," and which suggests that we are not as free as--and yet more than what--modernity says we are. He begins with an examination of the "standard self-description of modernity and (...)

    The Contemporary Moral Crisis.Gerald J. Galgan - 1986 - New Scholasticism 60 (2):186-212.
    The consumerist elevation of wants into needs requires the elevation of ethical relativism into the status of a "dogma." Collectivism and individualism are the two faces of this dogma and require the uneasy mediation of the claims of utilitarianism and romanticism. The historical and philosophical backdrop for this mediation is suggested with reference to Aristotle, Aquinas, Kant, J.S. Mill, De Tocqueville, and Oakeshott.

  9. William James and the Reinstatement of the Vague. [REVIEW]Gerald J. Galgan - 1993 - Review of Metaphysics 47 (1):147-148.
    Gavin argues that the restoration of "the vague and inarticulate" to its proper place in experience is vital for James's texts. In the first part, "Interpretations," he shows how religious concerns led to the metaphysical notion of "reality as vague." In line with the "unfinished" Jamesian text, the second part offers "Conversations" with texts of Peirce, Dewey, Marx, Rorty, and Derrida. The third, "Applications," true to the "directional" thrust of James's text, puts that text to work in modern art and (...)
