1. Hernandez, Brian. Nihilism and the Formulation of a Philosophy of Art.

Degree: 2011, University of North Texas

Nihilism is often associated with feelings of despair, hopelessness and meaningless. It is certainly true that once the implications of this philosophy become apparent that these feelings are valid. However, this reaction is merely the first stage of dealing with nihilism and stopping here fails to examine the various types of nihilism that deal specifically with knowledge, ethics, metaphysics, truth, and art. Nihilism at its base is a philosophy that recognizes the history of human thought and what it means to be and to think. My focus is the way in which a completed nihilism is in fact an emancipatory act and the implications it has for art and the artist in the 21st century. Advisors/Committee Members: Klein, Joseph, Wilkerson, Dale, Stout, David.

Subjects/Keywords: Nihilism; music; art; philosophy

2. Toole, Toby Houston. The Ways of Reflection: Heidegger, Science, Reflection, and Critical Interdisciplinarity.

Degree: 2013, University of North Texas

This thesis argues that there is a philosophical attempt directed at combating the fragmentation of the sciences that starts with Heidegger and continues today through Trish Glazebrook's interpretations of the former's concept of "reflection," and Carl Mitcham and Robert Frodeman's concept of "critical interdisciplinarity" (CID). This is important as the sciences are both more implicated in our lives and more fragmented than ever. While scientific knowledge is pursued for its own sake, the pertinent facts, meaning, and application of the science is ignored. By linking Heidegger's views on the fragmentation of the sciences to Glazebrook's interpretations of reflection and Mitcham and Frodeman's CID, I show that CID is a concrete realization of Heidegger's reflection. Advisors/Committee Members: Glazebrook, Patricia, Yaffe, Martin, Wilkerson, Dale.

Subjects/Keywords: Heidegger; interdisciplinarity; science; reflection

3. Pokross, Amy Elizabeth. The American Community College's Obligation to Democracy.

Degree: 2007, University of North Texas

In this thesis, I address the dichotomy between liberal arts education and terminal vocational training in the American community college. The need is for reform in the community college in relation to philosophical instruction in order to empower citizens, support justice and create more sustainable communities. My call for reform involves a multicultural integration of philosophy into terminal/vocational programs as well as evolving the traditional liberal arts course to exist in a multicultural setting. Special attention is focused on liberating the oppressed, social and economic justice and philosophy of education. Advisors/Committee Members: Hargrove, Eugene C., 1944-, Pokross, Amy Elizabeth, Wilkerson, Dale.

Subjects/Keywords: Philosophy of education; social justice; environmental citizenship; Community colleges  – United States  – Sociological aspects.; Education, Higher  – United States  – Philosophy.; Higher education and state  – United States.; Education  – Political aspects  – United States.; Multicultural education  – United States.
