INTRODUCTION TO COLLEGE PHILOSOPHY By Victor Moeller
Paperback: $39.95
Prints in 3-5 business days
This college course, an Introduction to Philosophy, is not a history of the great philosophers and their systems. It is not a survey of the traditional divisions of philosophy--metaphysics,... More > epistemology, phenomenology, ethics, politics, and aesthetics. It is, however, a process of doing philosophy that takes up some of the basic questions and problems that we will all encounter in life--sooner or later. It is also an application of the Socratic method of teaching and learning that develop habits of independent, critical, and reflective thinking. It is a series of Socratic seminars on the Great Books by the greatest faculty of the Western world and a process that illustrates how to pass from the world of work, need, and empirical science into “the world of all things” (beings) that Being provides< Less

This insightful manual by Andrew Taylor Still, the founder of osteopathic medicine, sheds light upon the thinking and practices of osteopathy - in so doing, he reveals the history behind the... More > treatment. By explaining the fundamental reasoning behind osteopathic procedure, Still offers readers a blueprint of his own medical practice. Descriptions of treatment inclusive of case studies make this text a valuable document in the history of osteopathy. We learn how processes of the body involving the bones, organs, blood and nerves interact - these processes form pillars of A. T. Still's attitude to human maladies and disease. Chapters of this book are devoted to regions of the body which Still holds to be significant to osteopathy. The functions of the organs are discussed, and their behavior when confronted with sickness and fever detailed. More curiously, Still also appends a chapter on earwax - a useful substance which he held in high regard as the example of nature never making anything in vain.< Less

Michel Xilinas describes three time episodes of the Universe: the evolution from the so called Big Bang to our days, the pre-Bing Bang events and the post our time future. The first episode unveils... More > a Universe from the automatic creation of an elementary particle up to the extraordinary evolution to the human being as we are on Earth. The materials are exposed in an organized scheduled sequence. The second episode is the stochastic proposal of a fully automatic creational process that allows the formation from an immaterial situation named as “beyond” of a new Universe. This revolutionary approach is based on the Casimir effect, Heisenberg uncertainty principle, Dirac’s delta function and Dirac’s superposition research incorporated in Michel’s stochastic approach. The third episode is the future with a new theory on the end of the Universe. Michel Xilinas, MD, DSc, DPH, is a Physician working in Drug Development and has numerous inventions.

More > and make up the field of epistemology. It reminds us that there is a human being between us and God. Epistemology has been a hot topic in Christian theology because of how our postmodern culture has questioned the very foundations of knowledge and truth. It is also an important part of a systematic theology as it is helpful to understand how we know what is true, before deciding what is true. This is why Calvin began his Institutes discussing the knowledge of our self, before the knowledge of God. Thomas Oden has said, “No study of God is complete without dealing with the limits and resources of human reasoning in God's presence.” While many modern Christian philosophers are neglecting the God-given place of human reason in the process of divine revelation, we defend it here, and offer several critiques of popular views.< Less
