  4. Future of Post-Human Semantics: A Preface to a New Theory of Internality and Externality.Peter Baofu - 2012 - Cambridge Scholars Press.
    Is semantics really so indeterminate that, as W. V. Quine (1960) once argued in Word and Object, in the example about a previously undocumented, primitive tribe, "it is impossible in principle to be absolutely certain of the meaning or reference that a speaker of the primitive tribe's language attaches to an utterance"? (WK 2011) This thought-provoking stand in semantics can be contrasted with an opposing view like "literal translation" (or "metaphrase," in contrast with "paraphrase"), in that, as John Dryden put (...)

    The Future of Aesthetic Experience: Conceiving a Better Way to Understand Beauty, Ugliness, and the Rest.Peter Baofu - 2007 - Cambridge Scholars Press.
    Contrary to the conventional wisdom held by many, Dr. Peter Baofu argues that the current popularity of postmodernism in the humanities (especially though not exclusively in relation to the arts) will not last, as it constitutes an aesthetic fad in this day and age of postmodernity.

    Why should some essential properties of geometry (i.e., infinity, symmetry, and dimensionality) be both necessary and desirable in the way that they have been constructed albeit with different modifications over time since time immemorial? Contrary to the conventional wisdom in all history hitherto existing, the essential properties of geometry do not have to be both necessary and desirable. This is not to suggest, of course, that one has nothing to learn from geometry. On the contrary, geometry has contributed to the (...)

  7. The Future of Post-Human Formal Science: A Preface to a New Theory of Abstraction and Application.Peter Baofu - 2010 - Cambridge Scholars Press.
    What exactly is so appealing in formal science, such that its influence can be seen in numerous disciplines? This contemporary addiction to practical convenience in formal science has turned a blind eye to its other side. This book provides a way to understand the nature of formal science, in relation to systems theory for practical convenience.

  8. The Future of Post-Human History: A Preface to a New Theory of Universality and Relativity.Peter Baofu - 2012 - Cambridge Scholars Press.
    Offers an understanding of the future of history, in the dialectic context of universality and relativity - while learning from different approaches in the literature but without favoring any one of them or integrating them, since they are not necessarily compatible with each other.
