Gilbetrt G. Hardy Louis Lavelle on the Mystery of Freedom
abstract | view |  rights & permissions | cited by
In my article, Louis Lavelle on Freedom and Participation (Philosophy Today, Spring 1969, pp. 19-25), I skwtchod the ontological stratification of human freedom as described by Lavelle. The analysis of the nature of Pure Act brought to light Being, identified with Absolute Freedom, through whose creative activity participated acts and participated freeoms are born. I must say, however, that even in this exhaustive analysis of Lavelle the mystery of human initiative still remains open. In this article, I shall attempt to probe the "mystery" of freedom in the two most elusive areas of its operation: as source of the multiplicdty of being and as creative energy behind every act of self-determination.

Louis Lavelle On Freedom
abstract | view |  rights & permissions | cited by
The following are a few key-texts from Lavelle on freedom. They are all from the second book of De L'Acte (Parls: Aubiar 1946). The book dealt with "the interval". The interval bridges the gap between Pure Act (book one) and Participated Act (book three). For Lavelle. it is in this intarval that participated freedom is bom and is transformed into an act of self-creation. — Gilbert G. Hardy.

Thomas Basch Consciousness, Humanism and Metaphysics
abstract | view |  rights & permissions | cited by
Since the tiem of Descartes, attempts to destroy humanism and metaphysics have consisted in attacking the reality and validity of consciousness. In recent times these attacks have taken three different forms: first, a denial of the reality of consciousness; secondly, the limitation of the meaning of consciousness to the strictly biological struggle for survival; thirdly, the charge that the cogito inflicts metaphysics with a fatal egocentrism. The following essay is a reflection on and answer to these attacks.
