Self as Agent by John Macmurray
Book DescriptionAt the heart of Macmurray's work is his attempt to reverse the proposition of philosophy of the modern period that posits the self as thinker withdrawn from action and essentially isolated from the world about which it reflects. Macmurray laboured to recast the role of philosophy in the service of a more fulfilling and basic personal communion with others, with the world, and ultimately with God. Indeed, it can be said that Macmurray's philosophy is really a philosophy of community - a philosophy that relates to many contemporary philosophical and religious concerns, as well as having a bearing on current historical/sociological, political, and feminist critiques of contemporary American society.

Letter to a Grieving Heart
Reason and Emotion, Paperback (February 1999)
Presents the author's views on reason and emotion as interdependent, rather than opposed aspects of human personality. This title states that the contrast we habitually draw between reason and emotion is false and leads to the erroneous conclusion that our emotional life is irrational and must remain so.
Persons in Relation, Paperback (December 1998)» View all books by John Macmurray
"The Self as Agent", was concerned to shift the centre of philosophy from thought to action. This second volume starts from this practical standpoint, sets out to show that the form of personal life is determined by the mutuality of personal relationship, so that the unit of human life is not the "I" alone, by the "You and I."
