  1. Love's Philosophy.Richard White - 2001 - Rowman & Littlefield Publishers.
    Love comes in many forms. From friendship to parenthood, from the lover to the altruist, it touches all our lives. As time passes by this remains constant in the human experience. Love's Philosophy explores the basic expressions of love. In this book, White takes into account classical and historical perspecitives. His reflections explain the historical and contemporary formations of love, and offer alternative models to that most encompassing sensation, love.

  3. Rousseau and the Education of Compassion.Richard White - 2008 - Journal of Philosophy of Education 42 (1):35-48.
    In this paper I examine Rousseau's strategy for teaching compassion in Book Four of Emile. In particular, I look at the three maxims on compassion that help to organise Rousseau's discussion, and the precise strategy that Emile's tutor uses to instil compassion while avoiding other passions, such as anger, fear and pride. The very idea of an education in compassion is an important one: Rousseau's discussion remains relevant, and he has correctly understood the significance of compassion for modern life. But (...)

    A Consistent Theory of Attributes in a Logic Without Contraction.Richard B. White - 1993 - Studia Logica 52 (1):113 - 142.
    This essay demonstrates proof-theoretically the consistency of a type-free theoryC with an unrestricted principle of comprehension and based on a predicate logic in which contraction (A (A B)) (A B), although it cannot holds in general, is provable for a wide range ofA's.C is presented as an axiomatic theoryCH (with a natural-deduction equivalentCS) as a finitary system, without formulas of infinite length. ThenCH is proved simply consistent by passing to a Gentzen-style natural-deduction systemCG that allows countably infinite conjunctions and in (...)

    Foucault on the Care of the Self as an Ethical Project and a Spiritual Goal.Richard White - 2014 - Human Studies 37 (4):489-504.
    In this paper, I examine Foucault’s ideas concerning the care of the self. What exactly is this ideal that Foucault describes in his last two books? Do these books represent a break or a continuation with the earlier writings on knowledge and power? Most important, I consider whether the care of the self could ever be a significant ethical ideal given some of the objections that have been raised against Foucault’s position. I also look at the care of the self (...)

    Dialectics of Mourning.Richard White - 2015 - Angelaki 20 (4):179-192.
    In this paper, I look at three different perspectives on mourning in recent European thought. First, I consider Freud's discussion in “Mourning and Melancholia” and other writings. Next, I look at Roland Barthes, whose book on photography, Camera Lucida, is itself a work of mourning for his late mother; and Jacques Derrida, who in Memoires for Paul de Man and The Work of Mourning memorializes departed friends and describes the ambiguities of mourning that constrain us. I argue that Freud was (...)

    Schopenhauer and Indian Philosophy: On the Limits of Comparative Thought.Richard White - 2010 - International Philosophical Quarterly 50 (1):57-76.
    Schopenhauer was one of the first Western philosophers to appreciate the significance of Indian philosophy. He comments on “the admirable agreement” between his own thought and the teachings of Buddhism, and he praises the wisdom of the Upanishads as among the most profound productions of the human mind. But how accurate is his grasp of Indian philosophy? In this essay I focus on three significant points of comparison: compassion, the illusory nature of the individual, and the value of life. To (...)

    An Investigation of the Impact of Preparer Penalty Provisions on Tax Preparer Aggressiveness.Richard A. White & Victoria J. Glackin - unknown
    Public and government outrage over recent tax fraud and tax shelter cases led to significant changes in the preparer penalty laws under the Small Business Work Opportunity Act of 2007. This study experimentally examines the effectiveness of the revised preparer penalty provisions at reducing tax preparer aggressiveness. Specifically, we examine the impact of two significant components of the changes to the preparer penalty provisions - the increase in penalty amount and the increase in the likelihood of sustaining the tax position (...)

    Nietzsche Contra Kant and the Problem of Autonomy.Richard White - 1990 - International Studies in Philosophy 22 (2):3-11.
    I argue that Nietzsche's philosophy is focussed upon the issue of autonomy and what it means to be a "sovereign individual." In this respect, Nietzsche is directly in the tradition of Kant who first valorized autonomy as the only proper foundation of moral life. As a "philosopher of the future," however, Nietzsche goes beyond Kant in describing as well as provoking the end of sovereignty.

    Nietzsche on Generosity and the Gift-Giving Virtue.Richard White - 2016 - British Journal for the History of Philosophy 24 (2):348-364.
    Generosity and gift-giving are important themes in Nietzsche's philosophy. This essay focuses on Nietzsche's idea of the gift-giving virtue which is explicitly discussed at the end of Part One of Thus Spoke Zarathustra. I begin with a critical discussion of this section, and then I consider three different interpretations. Finally, I look at some ways in which the idea of the ‘gift-giving virtue’ may be understood in terms of spiritual generosity, leading to ‘sovereignty’ as its ultimate goal. Throughout, there are (...)

    Reflections on the Scream: Francis Bacon, Lessing, and the Aesthetics of the Beautiful and the Sublime.Richard White - 2003 - Philosophy Today 47 (1):44-52.
    The artist Francis Bacon frequently depicted the open screaming mouth in his powerful paintings. But according to Lessing's classic work, _Laocoon, a scream is inherently ugly and a "blot on a painting productive of the worst possible effect." The conjunction of Lessing and Bacon is clearly a provocative one and it can tell us much about the fortunes of contemporary aesthetics.

    Schopenhauer, the Philosophy of Music, and the Wisdom of Classical Indian Philosophy.Richard White - 2021 - Sophia 60 (4):899-915.
    Among Western philosophers, Schopenhauer is one of the few who seeks to clarify the nature of music, and its effects upon us. He claims that music is the most important of all the arts; and he argues that music is a kind of metaphysics that allows us to experience the ultimate reality of the world. In this essay, I evaluate Schopenhauer’s philosophy of music in the context of his overarching philosophy. Then I discuss the relevance of traditional Indian philosophies -- (...)
