    The future of aesthetic experience: conceiving a better way to understand beauty, ugliness, and the rest.Peter Baofu - 2007 - Newcastle: 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. This thesis has important implications for understanding beauty, ugliness, and other aesthetic categories, be the era in the past, present, or future, to the extent that the current theoretical debate on aesthetic experience is as (...)

    The future of post-human etiology: towards a new theory of cause and effect.Peter Baofu - 2014 - New York: Nova Science Publishers.
    Is the traditional understanding of cause and effect in aetiology so certain that Arthur Eddington therefore proposed in 1927 "the arrow of time, or time's arrow" involving "the 'one-way direction' or 'asymmetry' of time", such that "a cause precedes its effect: the causal event occurs before the event it affects. Thus causality is intimately bound up with time's arrow"? (WK 2014) This certain view on cause and effect can be contrasted with an opposing view by Michael Dummett, who suggested instead, (...)

    The future of post-human health care: towards a new theory of mind and body.Peter Baofu - 2013 - New York: Nova Science Publishers.
    Is positive thinking really so healthy that, as Martin Seligman (2000) and Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi passionately thus argued, "we believe that a psychology of positive human functioning will arise, which achieves a scientific understanding and effective interventions to build thriving individuals, families, and communities"? This optimistic view on positive thinking for health can be contrasted with an opposing view by Barbara Ehrenreich (2009), who "extensively critiqued 'positive psychology'" and showed "how obsessive positive thinking impedes productive action, causes delusional assessments of situations, (...)

    The future of post-human sports: towards a new theory of training and winning.Peter Baofu - 2013 - Newcastle upon Tyne, UK: Cambridge Scholars Press.
    Are sports really supposed to be so competitive that, as Henry R. Sanders once famously said, â oeMen, I'll be honest. Winning isâ ]the only thing!â? (WK 2012) This competitive view of sports can be contrasted with a critical view by William Shakespeare, who wrote in Othello (Act. iv. Sc. 1), â oeThey laugh that win.â (BART 2012) Contrary to these opposing views (and other ones, as will be discussed in the book), sports (in relation to both training and winning) (...)

    The future of post-human acoustics: a preface to a new theory of sound and silence.Peter Baofu - 2011 - Cambridge, UK: Cambridge International Science Publishing.
    This book provides an alternative (better) way to understand the future of acoustics, especially in the dialectic context of sound and silence-while learning from different approaches in the literature but without favoring any one of them (nor integrating them, since they are not necessarily compatible with each other). In other words, this book offers a new theory (that is, the multilateral theory of acoustics) to go beyond the existing approaches in the literature on acoustics in an original way.

    The future of post-human sexuality: a preface to a new theory of the body and spirit of love makers.Peter Baofu - 2010 - Newcastle upon Tyne, UK: Cambridge Scholars Press.
    What precisely resides in â oesexualityâ which warrants the popular discourse on sexuality as â oepart of our world freedom, â or something as an inspiring source for â oeour own creationâ of â oenew forms of relationshipsâ or â oenew forms of loveâ never before possible in human history? This popular treatment of sexual freedom has become so politically correct, in this day and age of ours, that it fast degenerates into a seductive ideology which has impoverished our understanding (...)

    What makes the rule of law so special that it is to conscientiously punish the â oebadâ doers and reward the â oegoodâ onesâ "such that, where there is the rule of law, peace and order are to be expected, so that â oethe rule of law is better than the rule of any individualâ? Take the case of international law, as an illustration. While different international courts have been busy going after the killers of innocent victims in Rwanda and (...)

    The future of post-human geometry: a preface to a new theory of infinity, symmetry, and dimensionality.Peter Baofu - 2009 - Newcastle upon Tyne: Cambridge Scholars Press.
    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 (...)

    The future of post-human formal science: a preface to a new theory of abstraction and application.Peter Baofu - 2010 - Newcastle upon Tyne: 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.

    The Future of Human Civilization.Peter Baofu - 2000
    This text focuses on why the global spread of formal rationality contributes to a critical spirit which undermines human values and beliefs, be they ancient, medieval, modern and now postmodern. This is so in special relation to the model of the seven major dimensions of human existence: the True (knowledge), the Holy (religion), the Good (morals), the Just (justice), the Everyday (consumeristic culture), the Technological (technophilic culture), and the Beautiful (arts and literature). This not only has happened in the Eastern (...)
