IMAGES OF THE HUMAN: THE PHILOSOPHY OF THE HUMAN PERSON IN A RELIGIOUS CONTEXT is the collective effort of thirteen philosophy professors to address the questions human beings have been asking for centuries: What is life? What is the soul? Is there an afterlife? What does it mean to be self-aware? Is there a God? The book presents then examines selections from the primary works of eighteen of the best-known philosophers from ancient to modern times. Each chapter focuses on the writings of a different philosopher & includes an introduction & critical commentary by one of the professors. A distinctive feature of the reader, each commentary points out the significance of its text for religious believers, particularly those of the Christian faith. IMAGES OF THE HUMAN is meant not only as an introduction to the thoughts of many great philosophers, but also as an exercise in reading, understanding & assessing philosophical texts. It serves as a catalyst for both independent thinking & religious inquiry. Selected texts by: Plato, Aristotle, St. Augustine, St. Aquinas, Descartes, Hume, Kierkegaard, Marx, James, Nietzsche, Freud, Stein, Wittgenstein, Skinner, Sartre, de Beauvoir, de Unamuno, & Becker.
