Native American Worldviews by Jerry H. Gill

Book Description

In this excellent survey of Native American worldviews, philosopher of religion Jerry H Gill emphasises the value of tracing the overarching themes and broad contours of Native American belief systems. He presents an integrated view to serve as an introduction to ways of life and perspectives on the world far different from the dominant Euro-American culture. Drawing on the scholarship of anthropologists and specialists in Indian Studies, Gill brings together much original research in broad, accessible chapters. He explores Native American origin stories, the special connotations given to spatial concepts such as the cardinal directions and the circle, the influence of the seasons and the cycles of life on different cultures, and clan and kinship systems. Separate chapters are devoted to key ceremonies and customs as well as to concepts of health, harmony, virtues, wisdom, and beauty.

Deep Postmodernism by Jerry H. Gill Deep Postmodernism, Hardback (May 2010)

Presenting a critical assessment of postmodernism, the author argues that, however insightful the critiques of the postmodernists, they did little or nothing to offer constructive approaches to overcoming the impasse their criticism of modernism created.

Wittgenstein and Metaphor by Jerry H. Gill Wittgenstein and Metaphor, Hardback (June 1981)

Offers a different angle of interpretation for the philosophy of Ludwig Wittgenstein by exploring his use of metaphor, as well as the implications of this use for better insights into his view of language in particular and philosophy in general.
