    Both/and: Reading Kierkegaard : from Irony to Edification.Michael Strawser - 1997 - New York: Fordham University Press.
    Arguing that Kierkegaard (1813-55) can and should be taken seriously as a philosopher even in today's postmodern climate, Strawser (philosophy, Folkuniversitetet, Helsingborg, Sweden) offers evidence that in marking the juncture between objective philosophy and philosophy that recognized its subjective and provisional nature, he represents not a break between the aesthetic and the religious but a bridge between them. Paper edition (unseen), $17.00. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR.

    Spinoza and the Philosophy of Love.Michael Strawser - 2021 - Lexington Books.
    Michael Strawser provides a new reading of Spinoza as a philosopher of love for whom the ethically qualified conception of noble love is central. Strawser situates Spinoza’s philosophy of love within the Jewish and Cartesian traditions and shows how this active conception of love can conquer hatred and bring people together.

    Between Mood and Spirit: Kierkegaard’s Conception of Death as the Teacher of Earnestness.Michael Strawser - 2023 - Kierkegaard Studies Yearbook 28 (1):143-160.
    How are we to understand the earnest thought of death as developed in Kierkegaard’s discourse “At a Graveside”? Through a careful examination of this signed writing, I shall argue that readers nevertheless encounter an indirect, un-authorized discourse, which presents the occasion for both a variety of moods and the cultivation of spirit. The thought of death calls forth either a certain negative mood or presents a call to action for the good. However, this distinction is problematic insofar as we consider (...)

    Kierkegaard and the Phenomenology of Selfhood.Michael Strawser - 2014 - International Philosophical Quarterly 54 (1):59-74.
    In this paper I first examine the claim that the phenomenological tradition unanimously affirms that the core self is to be found in pre-reflective consciousness. I argue that the notion of the minimal self as first-person subjective givenness is problematic in important ways. Then, following the recent attention given to Kierkegaard as phenomenologist, I ask how Kierkegaard relates to the phenomenology of selfhood. Rather than proceeding directly, however, I argue that we must first consider Kierkegaard’s phenomenology of love before we (...)

    Asking Good Questions: Case Studies in Ethics and Critical Thinking.Nancy A. Stanlick & Michael J. Strawser - 2015 - Indianapolis: Hackett Publishing Company.
    _Asking Good Questions_ moves beyond a traditional discussion of ethical theory, focusing on how educators can use these important frameworks to facilitate critical thinking about real-life ethical dilemmas. In this way, authors Nancy Stanlick and Michael Strawser offer students a theoretical tool kit for creatively addressing issues that influence their own environments. This text begins with a discussion of key ethical theorists and then guides the reader through a series of original case studies and follow-up activities that facilitate critical thinking, (...)

    Creative Case Studies in Ethics.Michael Strawser - 2010 - Teaching Ethics 11 (1):107-121.
    How should we think about the many ethical dilemmas that face us today? How should research in current ethical dilemmas be conducted to move beyond impasses in judgment towards developing a consensus for action? According to Anthony Weston, “we need a more expansive view of ethics,” one that incorporates creativity. Following Weston’s lead, I shall discuss our new Honors Interdisciplinary Seminar on Case Studies in Ethics. This course is designed to prepare our students to participate in the Ethics Bowl, which (...)

    Creating Philosophy.Michael Strawser - 2005 - Teaching Philosophy 28 (2):115-134.
    The author reports on an effort to transform traditional top-down, instructor-centered philosophy courses into courses that are open, learning-centered, and work toward a cooperative goal. After providing the underlying rationale for cooperative philosophy courses, the author describes a cooperative philosophy course where students were assigned with individually (and cooperatively) answering the question “What is Philosophy?” by creating introductory philosophy textbooks. The author provides details on how to guide students to the creation of such introductory textbooks with a variety of practical (...)

    Reading Heidegger after Derrida.Michael J. Strawser - 1994 - Tópicos: Revista de Filosofía 6 (1):17-29.
    Este ensayo intenta abordar las complejas diferencias entre Martin Heidegger y Jacques Derrida. Se concentra en las suposiciones fundamentales involucradas en la lectura de Ser y Tiempo de Heidegger y la “célebre” reciente atención de Derrida a este texto. ¿Acaso el trabajo temprano de Heidegger está esencialmente manchado por la “metafísica de la presencia”, tal y como Derrida quiere sugerir? Después de trazar la interpretación de Derrida, el autor intenta mostrar cómo los lectores de Ser y Tiempo no necesitan sucumbir (...)

    Welcome to the Jungle: The Problem of Language in Kierkegaard and Wittgenstein.Michael J. Strawser - 1992 - Tópicos: Revista de Filosofía 3 (1):97-110.
    El problema del lenguaje es una de las fuerzas motivacionales detrás de los escritos tanto de Kierkegaard como de Wittgenstein. Después de clarificar este problema, el autor intenta esbozar las soluciones ofrecidas por estos dos filósofos tan distintos. En el caso de Wittgenstein, esto toma la forma de trazar el desarrollo de su noción de “juego del lenguaje”. En contraste, una consideración de Kierkegaard conduce a la pregunta por el engaño de cualquier solución. En qué sentido la expresión de experiencias (...)
