Description

About the Book:

The essays in this volume explore, from various angles, the issues relating to the role of logic in the understanding of reality, the role of belief and imagination in the creation of reality, the multi-dimensional, pluralistic and conflicting nature of values, the centrality of freedom as both the foundation and end of all values, the role of arts in the cognitive enterprise of man, the nature of revolution, culture and society and the epistemological and ontological problems that arise in understanding Man and his Creations.

The essays also discuss, in detail, the work of Merton, Sorokin, Northrop, Lazerowitz and Marx.
