An Overarching Defense Of Kant's Idea Of The Highest Good, Alonso Villaran 2010 Loyola University Chicago

An Overarching Defense Of Kant's Idea Of The Highest Good, Alonso Villaran

Dissertations

The main goal of this dissertation is to develop an overarching defense of Kant's idea of the highest good, against the criticisms pointed out in the English-speaking world, within the framework of the so-called "Beck-Silber controversy."

As it is known, since the second half of the last century, when the "Beck-Silber controversy" started, Kant's idea of the highest good has been subject to a massive attack. These attacks motivated, in turn, the emergence of a counterforce of defenders, a group that I attempt to join through this work. Particularly, I have identified six criticisms against Kant's idea ...

Reflections On A Sofa-Bed : Functional Beauty And Looking Fit, Rafael DE CLERCQ 2010 Lingnan University, Hong Kong

Reflections On A Sofa-Bed : Functional Beauty And Looking Fit, Rafael De Clercq

Prof. DE CLERCQ Rafael

This paper argues for two conclusions about functional beauty, as this notion has been understood by Parsons and Carlson in a recent book by the same name. First of all, it is argued that functional beauty either is not a distinct kind of beauty or that the members of this kind are not all and only instances of the property of looking fit. Second, it is argued that functional beauty is relative only to categories corresponding to essential functions. The second conclusion contradicts what Parsons and Carlson write about functional beauty, but the first conclusion does not, since they agree ...

Innovation And Entrepreneurial Spirit: Leonard J. Arrington And The Impact Of New Mormon History, John H. Brumbaugh 2010 Utah State University

Innovation And Entrepreneurial Spirit: Leonard J. Arrington And The Impact Of New Mormon History, John H. Brumbaugh

Arrington Student Writing Award Winners

Writing Mormon history has never been as easy as putting ink on paper. The historian Linda Sillitoe explained, “History is crucial in Mormonism.” David Bohn elaborated on the former observation, “Every attempt to undermine the historical authenticity of the foundational events of the Mormon past constitutes an assault on Latter-day Saint self-understanding.” Thus the reconstruction of Mormon history occurs in a spiritually-charged arena. At the center of the conflict within the Mormon historiography stands a farm boy from Idaho, Leonard J. Arrington. This man carried the study of Mormonism into new areas of scholarly acceptance. His entrepreneurial spirit led to ...

Ordinary Words: Towards A New Understanding Of The 19th Century Mormon Male Diary, Sara Jordan

Arrington Student Writing Award Winners

“It is hard to believe that any group of comparable size, with the possible exception of the Puritans and the Quakers, has been as relentless as the Mormons in writing diaries and autobiographies.” So wrote Davis Bitton, in the Introduction of the 1977 publication Guide to Mormon Diaries and Autobiographies, an index of nearly 3,000 published and unpublished works. Bitton, a close friend and colleague of Mormon History Scholar Leonard Arrington worked with Arrington for decades to create “a research program of [God’s] people’s history.” At the heart of that program was and continues to be the ...
