    Woody Allen's Angst: Philosophical Commentaries on His Serious Films.Sander H. Lee - 1997 - Mcfarland.
    While Woody Allen is generally considered to be a master of the comic genre he created, his serious films are very important in understanding his role as one of this generation's more influential filmmakers. In this work such Allen films as Annie Hall, Broadway Danny Rose, Crimes and Misdemeanors and Mighty Aphrodite are analyzed for the common philosophical themes they share. Gender issues, Allen's love-hate relationship with God, narcissism and moral relativism, and the use of the so-called existential dilemma are (...)

    Dance of the Dialectic: A Dramatic Dialogue Presenting Hegel's Philosophy of Religion.Sander H. Lee - 1982 - Review of Metaphysics 36 (2):442-443.
    Edward Beach has written a short work in which he attempts to illustrate some of the most important philosophical themes of Hegel's philosophy of religion. His format is that of a dramatic dialogue between Nisus, "a disillusioned wanderer," and Amanda, a goddess "whose sublime tranquillity and dignity suggest great wisdom." They engage in a poetic exchange in which Nisus is moved from despair first to the Transcendental Idealism which admits that all is formally knowable; on to an acceptance in principle (...)

    Dialogues with Scientists and Sages: The Search For Unity. [REVIEW]Sander H. Lee - 1989 - Idealistic Studies 19 (1):84-85.
    Renée Weber, a professor of philosophy at Rutgers, begins this brief book of interviews with an explanation and an attempt at a justification of its purposes and goals. She describes how she became disillusioned with the major current trends in contemporary philosophy, both Anglo-American and Continental, because of their common unwillingness to pursue an underlying meaning and unity to reality. Rather than exploring in a scholarly fashion the reasons for contemporary philosophy’s abandonment of this goal, Weber chooses to turn away (...)

    Existential Themes in the Films of Alfred Hitchcock.Sander H. Lee - 1985 - Philosophy Research Archives 11:225-244.
    The auteur theory of film-making (usually attributed in film to the French director Francais Truffaut) is explored with specific reference to the films of Alfred Hitchcock. It is argued that Hitchcocks’s films, in particular his later films, present a common theme which is in fact quite consistent with the outlook of Phenomenological Existentialism, especially as it was espoused by the philosophers Jean-Paul Sartre and Martin Heidegger.To support this position, textual analyses of various films directed and produced by Hitchcock are presented, (...)

    Modern Process Thought: A Brief Ideological History.Sander H. Lee - 1984 - Review of Metaphysics 37 (3):632-633.
    Professor Gray has subtitled his work, "A Brief Ideological History," and this is exactly what it appears to be. In the book, Gray gives a clear and well-organized presentation of the history and development of that systematic manner of philosophizing which is usually characterized as "Process Philosophy.".

    Notions of Selflessness in Sartrean Existentialism and Theravadin Buddhism.Sander H. Lee - 1998 - The Paideia Archive: Twentieth World Congress of Philosophy 36:134-141.
    In this essay I examine the relationship between Sartre's phenomenological description of the "self" as expressed in his early work and elements to be found in some approaches to Buddhism. The vast enormity of this task will be obvious to anyone who is aware of the numerous schools and traditions through which the religion of Buddhism has manifested itself. In order to be brief, I have decided to select specific aspects of what is commonly called the Theravadin tradition as being (...)

    Reverse Discrimination and Social Justice.Sander H. Lee - 1985 - Philosophy Research Archives 11:155-168.
    Tom Beauchamp has pointed out that there are three major positions advocated on the issue of “reverse discrimination”. In this article, I will argue that all three of these positions overlook a central issue which is at stake in this controversy and I will suggest that a fourth position exists. Furthermore, I will argue that the programs usually supported by those in favor of preferential treatment (e.g., the setting of educational or employmental goals or quotas) are, while unquestionably worthwhile in (...)

    Rationality in Philosophy and Science.Sander H. Lee - 1984 - Review of Metaphysics 37 (4):872-874.
    In this new book intended for an audience unused to reading philosophy, Charles Verharen attempts to overcome the tendency of such works to "often start in the midst of things without giving a striking rationale for entering into such an apparently abstract activity as philosophy." He does this by beginning his work with a chapter in which he examines the purpose and goals of philosophy.

    Sartre’s Acceptance of the Princple of Universality.Sander H. Lee - 1984 - Philosophy Research Archives 10:473-476.
    It is claimed, in a recently published introductory text book on ethics, that Jean-Paul Sartre did not accept a principle of universalizability. In this paper, I will briefly demonstrate that Sartre did indeed accept such a principle, and I will support my claim by reference to Sartre’s own words.

    The Failure of Love and Sexual Desire in the Philosophy of Jean-Paul Sartre.Sander H. Lee - 1985 - Philosophy Research Archives 11:513-519.
    For Jean-Paul Sartre, both love and sexual desire are necessarily doomed to failure. In this paper, I wish to briefly explain why Sartre takes this position. Both love and sexual desire fail, as do all patterns to conduct towards the other, because they involve an attempt to simultaneouslycapture the other-as-subject and as-object. This, for Sartre, involves an ontological contradiction which I demonstrate.Furthermore, I wish to offer the outline of a criticism of this position, a criticism made from the perspective of (...)
