Hauptbeschreibung Was verstehen wir unter "Natur"? Diese Frage ist in vielen Beziehungen zentral. Wir sprechen von der "Natur des Menschen" oder vom Gegensatz zwischen Natur und Kultur, wir fragen nach der Herkunft der natürlichen Dinge (durch Schöpfung entstanden, im Rahmen eines Evolutionsprozesses oder beides), schließlich auch nach der Veränderbarkeit... more...

The world contains objective causal relations and universals, both of which are intimately connected. If these claims are true, they must have far-reaching consequences, breathing new life into the theory of empirical knowledge and reinforcing epistemological realism. Without causes and universals, Professor Fales argues, realism is defeated, and idealism... more...

Its focus is on how signification functions in human and non-human orders of infinite nature, and our connection with the infinite is described in detail. more...

Distinguished feminist theorist Elizabeth Grosz turns her attention to a topic long hinted at in feminist politics, but rarely elaborated: the question of time and how it relates to power and subjectivity. She shows how a deep understanding of the processes of time and change could underpin a whole new generation of scholarship. more...

The author shows the inadequacy of received theories of causation, and, introducing conceptual devices of his own, provides an account of causation as the persistence over time of individual properties or "tropes." more...

Bridging from Husserl to Iamblichus, this book contributes phenomenological readings of Plotinus, Aristotle, Parmenides, and Heraclitus, in which prevalent misconceptions about the very identity of time in the phenomena of motion are corrected, and time's role in Greek philosophy recovered. more...
- Springer 2006; US$ 179.99
One of the most basic problems in the philosophy of science involves determining the extent to which nature is governed by laws. This volume presents a wide-ranging overview of the contemporary debate and includes some of its foremost participants. It begins with an extensive introduction describing the historical, logical and philosophical background... more...
- Springer 2008; US$ 189.99
We tend to identify ???real??? knowledge of nature with science, and for good reasons. The sciences have developed unique ways of disclosing and modifying the intricate workings of nature, building on quantitative, experimental and technologically advanced styles of thinking. Scientific research has produced robust and reliable forms of knowledge,... more...

George Molnar came to see that the solution to a number of the problems of contemporary philosophy lay in the development of an alternative to Hume's metaphysics.
