After Philosophy provides an excellent framework for understanding the most important strains of current philosophical work in North America, England, France, and Germany. Selections from the work of 14 contemporary philosophers not only display the multiplicity of approaches currently being pursued on the subject, but also help spell out today's options for either doing, or not doing, philosophy...

After Postmodernism Conferences
This site describes in details the After Postmodernism Conference held at the University of Chicago, Nov. 1997, including topics covered and papers presented.  

The Conference posed a specific question: If we absorb postmodernism, if we recognize the variety and ungroundedness of grounds, but do not want to stop in arbitrariness, relativism, or aphoria, what comes after postmodernism? 

Focusing Institute  

CoverThis site, created and maintained by Mitchell Darer is based upon the work of Eugene T. Gendlin

Excerpt from the homepage:

Focusing is a kind of inward bodily attention that a few people have naturally, but which most people don't yet know. It isn't being in touch with emotions or feelings and it isn't guessing or figuring things out in your head about yourself. It is a way of getting a body sense -- we call it a FELT SENSE -- of how you are in a particular life situation. This is unclear and vague at first, but if you pay attention it will open up into words or images that often will lead to small steps of change, action and new thought. It usually takes a few days of instruction to learn it. General descriptions do not convey focusing.

The Pond and the Philosopher's Stone

by Pete Wagner

I threw a stone into the pond...

With this image, we are taken on a fantastic mental journey. We explore a universe of fundamental truths from the banks of a mystical pond. The philosopher's stone unfolds an entire system of thought.

Here is an extraordinary integration of Western and Eastern philosophy with emerging scientific concepts of chaos and complexity. Seemingly divergent ideas are brought together in an intricate web of logic, revealing the absolute connectedness of being and experience.

This is a uniquely written book that will entertain and challenge the mind.

Pete Wagner describes himself as a common philosopher. Starting from everyday observations, he writes with passion and originality.

Pete Wagner's other works include essays on the philosophy of war and human spirituality, as well as a large and diverse collection of original songs.

This site contains a complete 28 chapter web version of The Pond and the Philosopher's Stone.
