Anglo-American Postmodernity by Nancey Murphy

Book Description

The term postmodern is generally used to refer to current work in philosophy, literary criticism, and feminist thought inspired by Continental thinkers such as Friedrich Nietzsche and Jacques Derrida. In this book, Nancey Murphy appropriates the term to describe emerging patterns in Anglo-American thought and to indicate their radical break from the thought patterns of Enlightened modernity.The book examines the shift from modern to postmodern in three areas: epistemology, philosophy of language, and metaphysics. Murphy contends that whole clusters of terms in each of these disciplines have taken on new uses in the past fifty years and that these changes have radical consequences for all areas of academia, especially in philosophy of science, philosophy of religion, and ethics.

Did My Neurons Make Me Do It? by Nancey Murphy Did My Neurons Make Me Do It?, Paperback (June 2009)

If humans are purely physical, then must all our thoughts and actions be determined by the laws of neurobiology? Free will, moral responsibility, and reason itself appear to be in jeopardy. But Murphy and Brown present a non-reductive version of physicalism which leaves room for us to be (sometimes) the authors of our own thoughts and actions.

Evolution and Emergence by Nancey Murphy Evolution and Emergence, Hardback (April 2007)

A collection of essays by experts in the field, exploring how nature works to produce systems of increasing complexity from simple components, and how our understanding of this phenomenon of emergence can lead us to a deeper appreciation of both our humanity and our relationship with God.

Bodies and Souls, or Spirited Bodies? by Nancey Murphy Bodies and Souls, or Spirited Bodies?, Hardback (January 2006)

Murphy addresses human uniqueness, religious experience, and personal identity before and after bodily resurrection.
