"Dialogical Practice and the Ontology of the Human Person "begins as a philosophical treatise examining and comparing the writ-ings of Charles Taylor and Norris Clarke, both important North American thinkers on the philosophical landscape. Delving into the philosophical claims of Taylor and Clarke, Williams makes the argument that the philosopher has a responsibility to examine his/her actual situation of prac-tice in the light of his/her own philosophical tradition and theory.Exploring questions intimately related to the common issues of relationship and human nature, that the human being is fundamentally a "person in community," Dr. Wil-liams ultimately connects and applies theory to practice in the difficult and controversial field of human services.show more
