By Borden Parker Bowne

Главное произведение американского философа и теолога, основателя американской школы персонализма. Излагаются основные положения философии персонализма – понятие Личности как ключевое для всякой философской мысли, недостаточность безличных картин мира как в материалистическом варианте (позитивисты), так и в идеалистическом (Гегель и его последователи), представление о знании как личностном феномене (в этом смысле идеи Боуна можно считать в какой-то степени основой концепции «личностного знания» Майкла Полани).
Для философов и историков философии.
