Whitehead's Metaphysics Of God, Christopher Cornish

Philosophy Undergraduate Theses

Alfred North Whitehead had three careers, two in England and one in America. Bom in the village of Kent in 1861, he was educated at Sherbom School and at Trinity College in Cambridge.

The Superman Connection: The Philosophical Link Between Friedrich Nietzsche And Fyodor Dostoevsky, Paula Ladenburg Apr 1983

The Superman Connection: The Philosophical Link Between Friedrich Nietzsche And Fyodor Dostoevsky, Paula Ladenburg

Languages and Literature Undergraduate Theses

The study of literary influence is an inexact one, at best. When one discovers a similarity in the thought of two different men, it is tempting to assume that one man influenced the other. Often, that influence can only be assumed. There exists another, more fascinating possibility, however. Two men, whether contemporaries or not, may arrive independently at very similar concepts.

The Concept Of The Object Relation In The Writings Of Gotthard Booth, M.D.: An Example Of An Emerging Paradigm In Medicine, Thomas Charles Foster

Theses and Dissertations (Comprehensive)

The writings of Gotthard Booth, M.D., especially his concept of object relation, demonstrate a change in medical thought away from a mechanistic to a holistic conception of man. His concept of the object relation and the diagnostic rationale that he developed from it reveal changes in medical conceptualization that are consistent with those changes in conceptualization across a variety of disciplines that have been identified as part of an emerging paradigm.


The Role Of The Mystic Actor At The Decline Of Civilization, Susan Dunlop Harper Jan 1983

The Role Of The Mystic Actor At The Decline Of Civilization, Susan Dunlop Harper

Theses and Dissertations (Comprehensive)

An examination of the creative role of the individual confronting the decline and possible destruction of civilization, this thesis explores the potential of one human being to achieve, through a process of the reconciliation of opposites, unity within himself and throughout the world.
