There is considerable debate amongst philosophers as to the basic philosophical problem Wittgenstein is attempting to solve in Philosophical Investigations. In this bold and original work, Meredith Williams argues that it is the problem of "normative similarity". In Blind Obedience Williams demonstrates how Wittgenstein criticizes traditional, representationalist theories of language by employing the ‘master/novice’ distinction of the learner, arguing that this distinction is often overlooked but fundamental to understanding philosophical problems about mind and language. The book not only provides revealing discussions of Wittgenstein’s corpus but also intricate analyses of the work of Brandom, Dummett, Frege, Sellars, Davidson, Cavell and others. These are usefully compared in a bid to better situate Wittgenstein’s non-intellectualist, non-theoretical approach and to highlight is unique features.

Author Donald F. Fausel was raised in the pre-Vatican II Catholic Church, when prescribed beliefs were rarely questioned and blind obedience to authority trumped following ones conscience. Through a process of developing an informed conscience and learning to think critically, his journey led him to a more responsible faith, while remaining in his Catholic tradition. This memoir recalls Fausels life experiences, his reflections on those events, and how they affected his spiritual journeyfrom his birth in 1929; his formative years; his life in the seminary and ordination in 1957; his nine years in the active ministry, ending with a dispensation from the Vatican in 1972; and his continued journey as a married Catholic. Fausel reflects on a range of faith-related issues: the differences between faith and beliefs; abortion and artificial birth control; the doctrine of infallibility; the danger of relying solely on the magisterium; the charism of celibacy and mandatory celibacy; the place of women in the church and the ordination of women; and the effect of the new cosmology on our image of God. Not only does Fausels memoir frame the events that shaped his life, but provides reflections to help others in their faith journey.

Loretta Chastain spent the better part of her adult life trying to forget the tragedies of her childhood. She thought she had insulated herself from an unfortunate rape and subsequent pregnancy, not only by physical distance, but by emotional distance as well. When her world was shattered by the vicious attack on her mother and son, she again was drawn into the world she had tried so hard to forget. Jack Princeton was a good cop by anyone's standard. The senseless murder of a thirteen-year-old boy and attack on Loretta's mother taxed his abilities to the limit, however. The fact that he had once been Loretta's boyfriend may have intruded, but the common sense approach that Loretta had about the attack and a previous attack in a neighboring town, finally led him down the right road. Skyler Jamerson had everything a man could want: money, power, a loving family and a presidential cabinet appointment. Why then, was he consorting with killers? What possible motive could he have in masterminding the attack on the Chastain family? What was to gain? Blind Obedience is a thrill-a-minute ride through the world of politics and power, love and lust, murder and mayhem. It exposes the worst a person can be, and the best that one could hope for. It follows the tenacity of Loretta Chastain as she guides the investigation into the insane rash of murders thrust upon her hometown. Don't miss the thrilling ending. Don't miss the chance to wonder about the possibility of reality. In this day and age, could something like this really happen?

Every few thousand years, our human culture experiences a massive evolutionary transformation. In the next few years, our consciousness will change very rapidly and move us beyond anything we can presently imagine. This change of consciousness is happening naturally to each of us now, and it will affect every aspect of how we think, how we live, and how we love. We are a culture in search of its spirit, and this change of consciousness is evolutionarily next for humankind on this planet. When the awareness opens, one may search many avenues and attractions for truth and enlightenment and find the search lacking in result. The next step may be the path of Self-discovery. But the direction on this path will not be given to us by a great teacher who comes down from the mountaintop with answers cast in stone, but rather by lots of little great teachers who could be called pathfinders. And to move into this new consciousness, we will transform the mind and the way it works with new mental skills and mental technology. Our success is inevitable. The ease or difficulty with which we achieve this success is still in formation. We will survive the transition physically. The question is whether we will survive psychologically. Psychological survival in this transition depends on only one thing: Developing the ability and inner discipline to completely, instantaneously, unquestioningly and continuously adapt to change.

This book highlights obedience as an American cultural motif by examining the ways in which citizens understand and dramatize the struggle between autonomy and allegiance. Willing Obedience tells the story of Americans who worked out the simultaneous demands of liberty and obedience in fiction, military memoir, and political writing from the Revolution through the nineteenth century. In contrast to the European model of a subject's blind obedience to a monarch, Americans imagined an allegiance that preserved autonomy even as they consented to the constraints of a new republic. In particular, the book considers the case of the soldier, whose surprisingly complex relationship to authority is in fact representative of the situation of all citizens in a republic.
