Routledge Philosophy Guidebook to Kant on Religion within the Boundaries of Mere Reason

Throughout his career, Kant engaged with many of the fundamental questions in philosophy of religion: arguments for the existence of God, the soul, the problem of evil, and the relationship between moral belief and practice. Religion within the Boundaries of Mere Reason is his major work on the subject. This book offers a complete and internally cohesive interpretation of Religion. In contrast to more reductive interpretations, as well as those that characterize Religion as internally inconsistent, Lawrence R. Pasternack defends the rich philosophical theology contained in each of Religion’s four parts, and shows how the doctrines of the "Pure Rational System of Religion" are eminently compatible with the essential principles of Transcendental Idealism. The book also presents and assesses: the philosophical background to Religion within the Boundaries of Mere Reason the ideas and arguments of the text the continuing importance of Kant’s work to philosophy of religion today.

Dr. Lake has made a significant contribution to integrative medicine in this book by helping to weave the integral tapestry around the complex issues of mental illness. In honor of his efforts to restore healing and meaning to mental healthcare, I bow deeply. --From the foreword by Larry Dossey, MD Dr. James Lake once again illumines the path to future medicine in this comprehensive, carefully researched, and intellectually engaging exploration of clinical integration of complementary and conventional therapies in mental health care. In a rigorous, dispassionate analysis he both reveals the outer frontiers of medical possibility and describes the professional boundaries necessary to reach such frontiers in ways that are clinically responsible as well as ethically unassailable. --Michael H. Cohen, JD, MBA, Assistant Clinical Professor, Department of Medicine, Harvard Medical School, and Assistant Professor, Department of Health Policy and Management, Harvard School of Public HealthDr. Lake has written the defining textbook for evidence-based integrative mental health care. He has comprehensively evaluated the research support for both conventional and natural therapies and redefined how we understand and treat mental health patients. His careful flow charts help guide the clinician through the challenge of assessment and differentiation to personalize therapies based on each patient's unique needs. Clinicians will also find of immense value his many tables, which summarize the evidence base for each intervention. This is a tour-de-force that forever redefines mental health care. --Joseph Pizzorno, ND, Founding President, Bastyr University This text offers an evidence-based approach to incorporating integrative psychiatry into practice that is pragmatic and useful, a great addition to the field of integrative medicine. --Roberta Lee, MD, Medical Director, Continuum Center for Health and HealingDr. Lake must be congratulated for this ground-breaking work on CAM in psychiatry. It not only provides a conceptual framework for a deeper understanding of disease of the mind-body-spirit, but also gives evidence-based blueprints for where we are and where we could go. A must read for mental health professionals interested in the philosophy and practice of integrative psychiatry. --Richard P. Brown, MD, Associate Professor, Department of Clinical Psychiatry, Columbia College of Physicians and SurgeonsThis text is comprehensive and authoritative, well written and widely referenced. It will, I hope, enlarge the way we think about mental health and treat psychiatric disorders. --James S. Gordon, MD, Founder and Director of the Center for Mind-Body Medicine This book provides a comprehensive review of integrative approaches in mental health. Here the practitioner will find clear guidance in an evidence-based manner. A wonderful contribution. --Wayne B. Jonas, MD, Director Samueli Institute for Information BiologyThis book is a tour de force in the emerging field of integrative psychiatry. The author presents the material in each chapter in a systematic, thoughtful, thorough, and practical manner. The text itself is integrative in the way it discusses management issues that a provider may encounter. As the number of patients who already include - or wish to add - alternative methods in their overall treatment plan continues to grow, this text provides an important comprehensive resource for busy providers. Health care professionals from many different disciplines who need a serious reference text on integrative psychiatry and who wish to optimize options for their patients with chronic psychiatric disorders will find this book indispensable. --Iris R. Bell, MD, PhD, Professor, Departments of Family and Community Medicine, Psychiatry, Psychology, Medicine, and Public Health, The University of Ariz

Die Grundprobleme der Phänomenologie

Wahrend der Drucklegung des zu Beginn des Jahres 1926 abgeschlossenen Manuskripts der Einleitung sowie des Ersten und Zweiten Abschnittes von "Sein und Zeit" setzt Heidegger die Ausarbeitung des Dritten Abschnittes "Zeit und Sein" fort. DOch Ende Dezember 1926 entschlieSSt er sich zum Abbruch dieser ersten Ausarbeitung, um in der Vorlesung des Sommersemesters 1927 unter dem Titel "Die Grundprobleme der Phanomenologie" eine "Neue Ausarbeitung des 3. ABschnitts des I. TEiles von Sein und Zeit" in Angriff zu nehmen. Der "Gesamtbestand der Grundprobleme der Phanomenologie in ihrer Systematik und Begrundung" besteht in der "Diskussion der Grundfrage nach dem Sinn von Sein uberhaupt und der aus ihr entspringenden Probleme". DIe so gekennzeichnete Thematik von "Zeit und Sein" wird jedoch im Unterschied zur verworfenen ersten Ausarbeitung nicht auf dem direkten Weg, somit nicht im direkten AnschluSS an den Zweiten Abschnitt "Dasein und Zeitlichkeit", sondern auf dem "Umweg" einer phanomenologischen Erorterung von vier geschichtlichen Thesen uber das Sein behandelt (Erster Teil). DIe phanomenologisch-kritische Diskussion dieser Thesen fuhrt zu der Einsicht, daSS allem zuvor die Grundfrage nach dem Sinn von Sein uberhaupt beantwortet sein muSS, um die aus den vier geschichtlichen Thesen herausgeschalten vier Grundprobleme in zureichender Weise ausarbeiten zu konnen. DIe systematische Behandlung der Grundfrage und der aus ihr entspringenden vier Grundprobleme ist unter dem Titel "Die fundamentalontologische Frage nach dem Sinn von Sein uberhaupt. DIe Grundstrukturen und Grundweisen des Seins" das Thema des Zweiten Teiles der Vorlesung. DEr These Kants, Sein ist kein reales Pradikat, entspricht in der Radikalisierung das erste Grundproblem, die ontologische Differenz. DEr auf Aristoteles zuruckgehenden These der mittelalterlichen Ontologie, zum Sein eines Seienden gehoren das Wassein (essentia) und das Wirklichsein (existentia), korrespondiert, ursprunglicher gefaSSt, das zweite Grundproblem, die Grundartikulation des Seins in Was-sein (Werheit des Daseins) und Wie-sein. DIe These der neuzeitlichen Ontologie, die Grundweisen des Seins sind das Sein des Geistes (res cogitans) und das Sein der Natur (res extensa), fuhrt, radikaler gedacht, zum dritten Grundproblem, den moglichen Modifikationen des Seins und der Einheit seiner Vielfaltigkeit. AUs der These der Logik uber das Sein der Kopula wird in ursprunglicherer Erfahrung das vierte Grundproblem, der Wahrheitscharakter des Seins, herausgeschalt. Das erste Kapitel des Zweiten Teiles ubernimmt die Ausarbeitung zweier Aufgaben, deren erste die Beantwortung der Fundamentalfrage durch die phanomenologische Entfaltung der Zeit als Horizont fur das Verstehen von Sein (Temporalitat des Seins) aus der ekstatischen Zeitlichkeit des Daseins ist. DIe Auflosung dieser entscheidenden ersten Aufgabe erfolgt in der Weise, wie sie in den Par. 5 und 83 von "Sein und Zeit" formal angezeigt wird. DIe zweite Aufgabe des ersten Kapitels ist die systematische Behandlung des ersten Grundproblems, der ontologischen Differenz, der Unterscheidung von Sein und Seiendem. ERst wenn gezeigt ist, wie Sein von Seiendem unterschieden ist, kann die Grundartikulation im Sein selbst, die Gliederung in Was-sein und Wie-sein, thematisiert werden, konnen die Modifikationen des Wie-seins (Existenz; Mitdasein, Zuhandenheit, Vorhandenheit, Leben, Bestand) systematisch erortert werden und kann schlieSSlich der dem Sein als solchem in seiner Grundartikulation und in seinen moglichen Modifikationen eigene Wahrheitscharakter (die Erschlossenheit als Wahrheit des Seins) untersucht werden. Wer "Sein und Zeit" als einen Weg zur Ausarbeitung der Seinsfrage uberhaupt als dem Ziel studiert, bleibt auf "Die Grundprobleme der Phanomenologie" verwiesen.
