Philosophy's Cool Place by Professor D. Z. Phillips
Book DescriptionLudwig Wittgenstein established a "cool" stance for philosophy, contemplating the world without meddling in it. D. Z. Phillips explores this position, focusing on its implications for philosophical authorship and the philosophical investigation of the nature of reality.Influenced by the views of Wittgenstein and his pupil Rush Rhees, Phillips-who is one of Rhees's own students-first contrasts Wittgenstein's methods with Kierkegaard's religiously oriented dialectic. He describes the difficulty in sustaining a contemplative view of philosophy and discusses efforts to go beyond it in the work of Richard Rorty, Stanley Cavell, Annette Baier, and Martha Nussbaum, who, in different ways, propose to make philosophy a guide to living. A provocative and challenging work, Philosophy's Cool Place is one of the few books that addresses the discipline as an enterprise and explores its relation to moral values, religious belief, and the nature of Reality. By advancing the cause of neutrality, it will stimulate debate and foster discussion of what philosophy is to become in the postmodern era.

Concept 'Horse' Paradox and Wittgensteinian Conceptual Investigations, Hardback (September 2007)
In "Foundations of Arithmetic", Gottlob Frege contended that the difference between concepts and objects was absolute. Benno Kerry disagreed; he contended that a concept could be an object, and that therefore the difference between concepts and objects was only relative. This book aims to understand the debate between Frege and Kerry.
