    Trust, Our Second Nature: Crisis, Reconciliation, and the Personal.Thomas O. Buford - 2009 - Lexington Books.
    This book is focused on what stabilizes and unifies our second nature, or that which we participants in a culture share in common. The claim is that in the triadic structure of the experience of all persons, trust is the key to the solidarity and stability of our second nature.

    Plato on the Educational Consultant.Thomas O. Buford - 1977 - Idealistic Studies 7 (2):151-171.
    What is Plato attempting to accomplish in the Laches? A cursory reading leaves one with the strong impression that the main topic of discussion is the education of the sons of Lysimachus and Melesias. However, an equally cursory survey of the major interpretations of the Laches reveals that few, if any, scholars agree with that impression. Their view is that the main topic of conversation in the Laches is courage, the examination of which takes place in the second main section (...)

    Know Thyself: An Essay on Social Personalism.Thomas O. Buford - 2011 - Lexington Books.
    Self-Knowledge: An Essay in Social Personalism proposes that social Personalism can best provide for self-knowledge. Thomas O. Buford offers a social personalist understanding of self-knowledge which focuses on the relation of persons to each other and to the Personal, and avoids the impersonalisms that erode the dignity of persons and their moral life which characterize modern life.

    Personalism and Education.Thomas O. Buford - 1998 - The Paideia Archive: Twentieth World Congress of Philosophy 29:60-67.
    Committed to the metaphysical thesis that Person is first, working within the Liberal Protestant Consensus, and believing that our minds are capable of grasping reality, Boston Personalists have followed two roads in developing their thought: ratio and poeisis. The former is represented by Bowne and Brightman with their emphasis on reason, and the latter by Bertocci with his emphasis on creativity. Though Bowne and Brightman were deeply concerned with education, it was Bertocci who wrote on the subject, and his focus (...)

    Divine Commands and Moral Requirements. [REVIEW]Thomas O. Buford - 1983 - Review of Metaphysics 36 (4):946-947.
    In the history of moral philosophy an important theme is that morality in some way and in part depends upon the will of God. Recently this view has been rejected because it is believed to be incompatible with accepted modern doctrines about morality. If human moral actions depend upon the will of God, then it is assumed human moral autonomy must be given up. And if this is so, the possibility of a defensible divine command theory of morality must be (...)

    Idealism Past and Present. [REVIEW]Thomas O. Buford - 1986 - Idealistic Studies 16 (2):153-153.
    Vesey has collected fifteen essays from Royal Institute of Philosophy lectures on idealism, particularly that of Berkeley, Kant, the Post-Kantians, and, it is claimed, of Wittgenstein. The result is the presentation of idealism as a philosophical viewpoint that is diverse and rooted deeply in Western philosophy. While this volume is not organized into sections, the contributors address such questions as: Did Plato, in Parmenides, lean toward the idealism that holds that the world is essentially structured by categories of thought? How (...)

    Knowledge. [REVIEW]Thomas O. Buford - 1982 - Review of Metaphysics 36 (2):443-444.
    Bernson takes a fresh approach to the nature of knowledge in his emphasis on the cognitive situation. While indebted to Strawson, Husserl, and Zinkernagel, he forges new insights and new distinctions which, if taken seriously, require a new view of what counts as knowledge. The theme of the book is that "we cannot meaningfully put forward any assertion or use any word or concept without presupposing or assuming that we find ourselves confronted with existing reality in concrete situations and have (...)

    Knowledge and Scepticism. [REVIEW]Thomas O. Buford - 1985 - Review of Metaphysics 38 (3):671-673.
    Odegard's purpose is twofold: "to describe an ideal form of the knowledge of truth," and to "defend the view that such an ideal is realistic." While his description of knowledge is rooted in ordinary language, it is not bound by it; he reshapes ordinary language when necessary. The description includes those elements that are the necessary and sufficient conditions for an ideal knowledge. Odegard argues for its realism by giving an apologetic response to a sceptic. Accordingly the book is divided (...)

    Metaphysical Personalism: An Analysis of Austin Farrer's Metaphysics of Theism. [REVIEW]Thomas O. Buford - 1997 - Review of Metaphysics 50 (4):873-873.
    This analysis of Austin Farrer's philosophical theology joins the distinguished work by contemporary personalists, Embers and the Stars by Erazim Kohak and Being and Value by Frederick Ferré. Conti's work is more than an analysis of Farrer's understanding of the relation of faith and reason, the nature of God, and God's relation to other persons. Through a detailed, rigorous investigation of the changes in Farrer's thought from Finite and Infinite through Freedom of the Will to Faith and Speculation, Conti provides (...)
