    Zen, Yoga, And Sports: Eastern Philosophy For Western Athletes.Spencer K. Wertz - 1977 - Journal of the Philosophy of Sport 4 (1):68-82.
    The oriental martial arts tend to be viewed as having deep, mysterious significance and secret, occult practices. An adept in a martial art is supposed to be not only an expert in combat but also a spiritual master, worthy of assuming a religious status for his students. Much of what is written under the name of "philosophy of the martial arts" emphasizes these characteristics, and makes claims about the results of martial arts training that may well perplex an outsider. We (...)

    Human Nature and Historical Knowledge: Hume, Hegel, and Vico (Review).Spencer K. Wertz - 2004 - Hume Studies 30 (2):412-415.
    This book, now available in paperback, was not reviewed in this journal when it first appeared, but that omission is corrected here. Since its first appearance, the book has established itself as an important contribution to the philosophy of history and Hume’s place in it. Because of the scope of this journal, I shall mainly focus on Professor Pompa’s discussion of Hume, but the three thinkers—Hume, Hegel, and Vico—are a nice contrast. In his concluding chapter 4, Pompa sums up this (...)

    The National Endowment for the Arts and its Opposition: Danto's Argument for Art for Our Sake.Spencer K. Wertz - 2007 - Journal of Aesthetic Education 41 (3):111-117.
    : A survey of arguments made by fiscal conservatives who wish to eliminate federal funding of the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) is given and a critique of them stemming from Danto's argument for art for our sake. Following Hegel's lead, Danto shows us that there is an intimate relationship that exists between nations and their art—that is, that art is central to the political health of a nation. The arguments by conservatives are found wanting and pose no threat (...)

  9. Between Hume’s Philosophy and History: Historical Theory and Practice.Spencer K. Wertz - 1999 - Upa.
    This book explores the historical dimension of David Hume's philosophy, a feature that Spencer Wertz calls 'historical empiricism.' According to Wertz, Hume sought to understand the present in terms of the past in a way that anticipates the historical constructionism of R.G. Collingwood and Herbert Butterfield. Hume's method is to tell a story about something's origin in which ideas yield impressions. These impressions eventually yield to experience that includes history as part of its structure. Arguing that Hume worked between history (...)
