Falsehood: An Analysis of Illusion's Singularity By Marc Burock
Paperback: $5.00
Prints in 3-5 business days
It is a common tactic, going back to the beginnings of religion and philosophy, to presume that we are enveloped in a world of untruth and illusion, thereby fueling our movement toward truth. But... More > the accumulation of skepticism has made us skeptical that truth can be found, so many of us have abandoned the quest all-together, yet we continue to believe in the reality of illusion, if only implicitly and locally. Here we challenge the concept of illusion itself, asking those who have ever called something ‘an illusion’ to question the meaning of these assertions. This broader skepticism partially annihilates itself, pushing us forward in the process.< Less

Middle Way Philosophy 1: The Path of Objectivity By Robert M. Ellis

Initially inspired by the Buddha's Middle Way, but working in Western Philosophy and related disciplines, Robert M. Ellis first developed Middle Way Philosophy in a Ph.D. thesis in 2001. This new... More > detailed account is the product of a further ten years of refinement of his approach, and concentrates on the philosophical core. It will be followed by further volumes focusing more on the psychological and practical implications of the philosophy. Middle Way Philosophy aims to clear the ground for practical progress. It challenges many entrenched assumptions, including those of analytic philosophy. It also offers a new account of objectivity, as an incremental quality that helps us to engage with all conditions in our experience. It insists on a consistent approach to both facts and values that avoids both absolute claims and relativism."An important, original work, that should get the widest possible hearing."

Book 3 Authority HC By Kurt Jurgensmeier

Is Scripture really our ultimate authority? Most Christians answer this question by simply saying, “The Bible is my final authority.” But, as we explain here, such a view forgets that... More > there is a human being between us and the Bible, which is why there are a multitude of interpretations of the Bible that people live by. Reformed theologians in particularly have claimed that a “testimony of the Spirit,” or some sort of an additional revelation of the Spirit, confirms to us what is true. But, again, we can demonstrate that there is no biblical or practical support for this. Accordingly, we are back to our God-given reason and the right and responsibility of private judgment as our ultimate subjective authority by which we live by. Postmoderns are right, then, to assert that our own reason is the god we live by. But they are wrong to ignore that our ultimate objective authority is God, Who our reasoning will be judged by.< Less

Has the Christian faith been thoroughly explained through the almost 19 centuries after the death of the apostles? Augustine? Aquinas? Calvin? Barth? Billy Graham? Catholicism? Protestantism?... More > Primitivism? Universalism? Presuppositionalism? Evidentialism? Are we, and the voice of scripture itself, really to be thought at the mercy of human creativity and manipulation for its impact to be felt and minds supernaturally illuminated as God intended it? The answer: no! The Bible is about one thing: messianic prophecy and its fulfillment, and the imperative of our love, knowledge and faith of Jesus Christ through it. The implications of this simple truth are expounded here, to change our reading of scripture, and ourselves, forever, and in a way that the world could never have imagined.< Less

The second volume of this work, Being and Knowledge, is intended as the third in a trilogy of philosophical works, following on from Heidegger’s Being and Time and Sartre’s Being and... More > Nothingness, both of which works have inspired me, along with the writings of Aristotle, Duns Scotus, Sankara, Mulla Sadra, Maimonides and countless others. My work is different from Sartre’s and Heidegger’s in that it is unashamedly interfaith, and draws on a truly global philosophical range of positions and perspectives. This book s my offering to the solution of the puzzle of what is going on on our planet right now, as rival groups and factions contend with rival ideas of what is true knowledge, and how their knowledge is better than yours, and also rival understandings of Ultimate Being – energy ? Matter ? Mind ? God ? Tao ? Emptiness ? etc.It is my own way as a philosopher, to present an eagle perspective on how we can get peace on this troubled planet in our time – but more than that, how we can get enlightenment and love< Less
