"The inquiry into the foundations of knowledge is a systematic inquiry into the problem of truth. This problem constitutes one of the three main concerns of philosophical analysis, the others being the problem of beauty and the problem of goodness." Thus Evangelos P. Papanoutsos, Greece's leading contemporary philosopher, introduces this third book of his "Trilogy of the Mind." The first two volumes covered aesthetics and ethics; this one is a major work in epistemology. Combining rigorous analysis with thorough-going scholarship, displaying an intimate acquaintance with the physical and humanistic sciences, and drawing on a deep understanding of philosophical method and the history of philosophy, Professor Papanoutsos is held in high esteem by his European colleagues. This translation of his masterpiece will enhance his reputation and influence among readers of English. The themes of The Foundation of Knowledge range over the topics that have been continually challenging to the modern era of philosophers: being and consciousness, experience and reason, common sense and science, and the domains of knowledge, including the nature of philosophical knowledge. Special attention is paid to the analysis of theoretical consciousness, the problems of categorical thinking, the theory of judgment, mathematics and logic, and the limits of historical understanding.

This work was the first sustained philosophical study of psychic phenomena to follow C.D. Broad's LECTURES ON PSYCHICAL RESEARCH, written nearly twenty years earlier. The author clearly defines the categories of psychic phenomena, surveys the most compelling experimental data, and traces their implications for the philosophy of science and the philosophy of mind. He considers carefully the abstract presuppositions underlying leading theories of psychic phenomena, and he offers bold criticisms of both mechanistic analyses of communication and psychophysical identity theories. In addition, he challenges the received view that experimental repeatability is the paramount criterion for evaluating parapsychological research, and he exposes the deep confusions underlying Jung's concept of synchronicity.

Neuropsychological Foundations of Conscious Experience retraces the growth of microgenetic theory from its beginnings in neuropsychology and aphasia in relation to other genetic models of cognition. The account of the mind/brain state and subjective time and change is explored in relation to psychoanalytic concepts of the unconscious as well as philosophical ideas on intentionality, subjectivity and truth. In a final chapter, the theory aims to elucidate creative thinking and mystical experience. The primary aim is to aid the reader to see the progression from clinical studies to theoretical speculation in a way that condenses more extensive and technical writings. This book should appeal to both lay and professional readers with an interest in these topics. It is the author's contention that microgenetic theory is the only available and fully coherent account of the mind that covers not only clinical disorders but normal cognition and metapsychological issues relating to an evolutionary brain model.

Harry Settani's work explores psychic or paranormal phenomena from a uniquely philosophical perspective. Today's forms of science cannot accommodate the reality of the paranormal and therefore, Settanni proposes, the current view of reality must be changed in order to establish the real possibilities for such phenomena. The author discusses such notions as Whitehead's Fallacy of Simple Location and seeks to define the content for twentieth century science. Contents: The Ethical Impact of Twentieth Century Science; Psychic Phenomena and Twentieth Century Physics; The Mind: Is It Merely the Activity of the Brain?; The Problem of Personal Identity; Dimensions; Space-Time and Spinoza; Seeds; The Last Frontier; Atoms and Eidos: The Emerging Contemporary Philosophy.

Descartes has often been called the 'father of modern philosophy'.His attempts to find foundations for knowledge, and to reconcile the existence of the soul with the emerging science of his time, are among the most influential and widely studied in the history of philosophy. This is a classic and challenging introduction to Descartes by one of the most distinguished modern philosophers. Bernard Williams not only analyzes Descartes' project of founding knowledge on certainty, but uncovers the philosophical motives for his search. With acute insight, he demonstrates how Descartes' Meditations are not merely a description but the very enactment of philosophical thought and discovery. Williams covers all of the key areas of Descartes' thought, including God, the will, the possibility of knowledge, and the mind and its place in nature. He also makes profound contributions to the theory of knowledge, metaphysics and philosophy generally. This is essential reading for any student of philosophy. This reissue includes a new foreword by John Cottingham.
