    A Commentary on Heidegger's Being and Time.Michael Gelven - 1970 - Northern Illinois University Press.
  2. War and Existence: A Philosophical Inquiry.Michael Gelven - 1993 - Pennsylvania State University Press.
    War is a multifaceted and complex phenomenon that cannot be understood merely by isolating its underlying principles. The elements that compose the vast mosaic of our conceptions of war must be identified and examined in light of their philosophical origins. Michael Gelven not only identifies what the fundamental principles are, but he also extracts from the history of philosophy the arguments and analyses of the concepts that explain how we think about it. _War and Existence_ is primarily concerned with what (...)

    Is Sacrifice a Virtue?Michael Gelven - 1988 - Journal of Value Inquiry 22 (3):235-252.
    Sacrifice is shown to be (1) a bestowal which brings pain to the donor; (2) making something holy; (3) the shedding of innocent blood. Six different meanings to 'giving' are analyzed: protection, Bribery, Commerce, Reward, Gift, Sacrifice. This last is existentially intelligible, Not morally intelligible. Gifts celebrate the worth of the recipient, Sacrifices the worth of both donor and recipient. The shedding of blood is explained as necessary to 'give of oneself', And hence it is the highest level of bestowal, (...)

    Language as Saying and Showing.Michael Gelven - 1983 - Journal of Value Inquiry 17 (2):151-163.
    A distinction is made between language that states what is the case and language that reveals meaning. The latter, Is not emotive but cognitive. Truth must be seen as the revelation of meaning, And falseness conceals meaning. Since there is no referential entity to such language, It must be grounded rather in modes of being. Thus, Language as showing reveals the truth, Conceived as an understanding of what it means to exist.

  22. Truth and Existence: A Philosophical Inquiry.Michael Gelven - 1990 - Pennsylvania State University Press.
    Writing deliberately in a nontechnical style so as to make his book accessible to readers who are not professional philosophers, Michael Gelven here offers an extended meditative essay on the nature and meaning of truth. He approaches this subject directly, rather than through a critique of what others have said about it, and takes off from the realization that truth has a wider meaning than that which can be found in the analysis of true sentences, which is the focus of (...)

  24. The Asking Mystery: A Philosophical Inquiry.Michael Gelven - 2000 - Pennsylvania State University Press.
    How do we ask the great questions? What does it mean to ask so profoundly? What does it mean for us to ask at all? Michael Gelven confronts these questions as he explores humans as self-reflecting thinkers. He recognizes two central phenomena as fundamental: the recognition of our own possibility lying within our existence and the realization of our suspension between total ignorance and complete knowledge. Using concrete analyses, Gelven investigates the questions we ask that may seem initially unanswerable but (...)

  26. The Quest for the Fine: A Philosophical Inquiry Into Judgment, Worth, and Existence.Michael Gelven - 1995 - Rowman & Littlefield Publishers.
    In this original and compelling exploration of the meaning of the term 'fine' and the phenomenon of refinement, noted scholar Michael Gelven reflects on the relationship between refinement and existence. Beginning with a study of perceptual refinement, Gelven shows how in some cases this refinement discloses an existential essence—as an architect shows us what it means to dwell. Gelven then moves to a refinement of self, not equating it with virtue but showing how refinement illuminates our understanding of our ethical (...)
