  10. Review of Nicholas Rescher, Pascal's Wager: A Study of Practical Reasoning in Philosophical Theology. [REVIEW]Cornel West - unknown
    The immeasurable impact of Pascal is rarely appreciated or understood by contemporary thinkers. On the one hand, Pascal is lauded by literary critics for his writing style while his philosophical contributions are overlooked. On the other hand, Pascal is trivialized by analytic philosophers who view his wager argument as but a poor instance of decision theory. Nicholas Reseller's book is distinctive in that it takes Pascal seriously as a philosopher in light of past and present theological modes of argumentation. (...)

    In Part 1 of this short book, Rescher provides an overview of the nature and source of Leibniz’s interest in the theory and practice of cryptanalysis, including his unsuccessful bid to secure an apprentice for John Wallis (1616-1703) with a view to perpetuating the Englishman’s remarkable deciphering abilities. In Part 2, perhaps the most interesting part of the book, Rescher offers his account of the inner workings of Leibniz’s cipher machine. Part 3 provides a brief pictorial history of (...)

    Nicholas Rescher, on Leibniz (Pittsburgh: University of Pittsburgh Press, 2003).Nick Trakakis - 2004 - The Leibniz Review 14:89-98.
    Nicholas Rescher is well-known for the breadth of his philosophical corpus, covering fields as diverse as medieval Arabic logic, process metaphysics, philosophy of science, and value theory. But one of his greatest preoccupations and passions throughout his career has been the life and thought of G.W. Leibniz. Indeed, as a result of his intimate familiarity with Leibniz and Leibniz’s historical milieu, Rescher invariably provides us with a clear, rigorous, and sympathetic treatment of Leibniz’s texts, and the present (...)

  23. Fairness: Theory & Practice of Distributive Justice.Nicholas Rescher - 2002 - Routledge.
    In theory and practice, the notion of fairness is far from simple. The principle is often elusive and subject to confusion, even in institutions of law, usage, and custom. In Fairness, Nicholas Rescher aims to liberate this concept from misunderstandings by showing how its definitive characteristics prevent it from being absorbed by such related conceptions as paternalistic benevolence, radical egalitarianism, and social harmonization. Rescher demonstrates that equality before the state is an instrument of justice, not of social (...)

    Aporetics: Rational Deliberation in the Face of Inconsistency.Nicholas Rescher - 2009 - University of Pittsburgh Press.
    The word apory stems from the Greek aporia, meaning impasse or perplexing difficulty. In _Aporetics,_ Nicholas Rescher defines an apory as a group of individually plausible but collectively incompatible theses. Rescher examines historic, formulaic, and systematic apories and couples these with aporetic theory from other authors to form this original and comprehensive survey. Citing thinkers from the pre-Socratics through Spinoza, Hegel, and Nicolai Hartmann, he builds a framework for coping with the complexities of divergent theses, and shows (...)

    Towards an Historiography of Science.Nicholas Rescher - 1965 - Philosophical Review 74 (1):115-117.
    Bacon's inductivist philosophy of science divides thinkers into the scientific and the prejudiced, using as a standard the up-to-date science textbook. Inductivists regard the history of science as progressing smoothly, from facts rather than from problems, to increasingly general theories, undisturbed by contending scientific schools. Conventionalists regard theories as pigeonholes for classifying facts; history of science is the development of increasingly simple theories, neither true nor false. Conventionalism is useless for reconstructing and weighing conflicts between schools, and overemphasizes science's internal (...)

  33. Ongoing Journey.Nicholas Rescher - 1986 - Upa.
    This volume represents an update of the author's earlier autobiography, Mid-Journey . The addition of three chapters brings the author's life up to 1985. The original autobiography was written at the mid-point of Rescher's professional life as an endeavor in self-definition and self-comprehension. The book's story-line revolves around the author's finding himself in the career of a philosopher, but also details the story of his life.

    Distant Posterity: A Philosophical Glance Along Time's Corridor.Nicholas Rescher - 2018 - Review of Metaphysics 72 (1):3-27.
    Moralists tell us to care for the interest of others. Epistemologists enjoin us to achieve consensus with others. But accommodating these “others” will be a real problem—seeing that most of them will live beyond our reach and outside our knowledge in their distant future. Philosophers do not seem to worry about distant posterity and yet cannot but acknowledge its relevancy for their concerns. This paper tries to identify and to clarify some of the many important issues that arise here.
