Nature, Truth, and Value: Exploring the Thinking of Frederick Ferré
George Allan, Merle Frederick Allshouse
Lexington Books, 2005 - Philosophy - 373 pages
In Nature, Truth, and Value nineteen scholars writing from across the humanities and sciences challenge the reigning theoretical and philosophical enterprises of deconstruction and postmodernism. With great erudition, ambition, and daring, all contributions have one thread in common--their abiding interest in the work of Frederick FerrZ, a thinker whose passion for intellectual inquiry remains unsurpassed. More specifically Nature, Truth, and Value is an exploration of FerrZ's idea that traditional dichotomies are dead, that we all are a part of nature, that truth is one, and that value is ultimate. FerrZ's colleagues and friends, writing here in this volume, have all been inspired to develop his ideas which have become, now more than ever, critical issues in a broken and fragmented world. This book represents a deep exploration of FerrZ's ideas and is indispensable to the fields of philosophy, theology, ethics, and environmental studies.
