  • On Truthby Harry G. Frankfurt

    Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group 2006; US$ 16.95

    Having outlined a theory of bullshit and falsehood, Harry G. Frankfurt turns to what lies beyond them: the truth, a concept not as obvious as some might expect. Our culture's devotion to bullshit may seem much stronger than our apparently halfhearted attachment to truth. Some people (professional thinkers) won't even acknowledge "true" and "false"... more...

  • On Bullshitby Harry G. Frankfurt

    Princeton University Press 2009; US$ 9.95

    One of the most salient features of our culture is that there is so much bullshit. Everyone knows this. Each of us contributes his share. But we tend to take the situation for granted. Most people are rather confident of their ability to recognize bullshit and to avoid being taken in by it. So the phenomenon has not aroused much deliberate concern.... more...

    Princeton University Press 2009; US$ 18.95

    This beautifully written book by one of the world's leading moral philosophers argues that the key to a fulfilled life is to pursue wholeheartedly what one cares about, that love is the most authoritative form of caring, and that the purest form of love is, in a complicated way, self-love. Harry Frankfurt writes that it is through caring that we... more...

In a world of spin, rhetoric, blagging and bullshitting, a basic level of scepticism... more...

  • Demons, Dreamers, and Madmenby Harry G. Frankfurt; Rebecca Goldstein

    Princeton University Press 2009; US$ 29.95

    In this classic work, best-selling author Harry Frankfurt provides a compelling analysis of the question that not only lies at the heart of Descartes's Meditations , but also constitutes the central preoccupation of modern philosophy: on what basis can reason claim to provide any justification for the truth of our beliefs? Demons, Dreamers, and... more...

  • Freiheit und Selbstbestimmungby Harry G. Frankfurt; Monika Betzler; Barbara Guckes

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 133.00

    Erstmals im deutschsprachigen Raum werden in diesem repräsentativen Reader Arbeiten von Harry G. Frankfurt publiziert, dessen Überlegungen bedeutsam wurden für nicht-utilitaristische Werttheorien, für die Ethik der Fürsorge bzw. der Tugendethik, aber auch für die moderne Rationalitätstheorie.
