  • The Philosophy of Agambenby Catherine Mills

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 29.95

    Giorgio Agamben has gained widespread popularity in recent years for his rethinking of radical politics and his approach to metaphysics and language. However, the extraordinary breadth of historical, legal and philosophical sources which contribute to the complexity and depth of Agamben's thinking can also make his work intimidating. Covering the full... more...

  • Stoicismby John Sellars

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 29.95

    This is the first introduction to Stoic philosophy for 30 years. Aimed at readers new to Stoicism and to ancient philosophy, it outlines the central philosophical ideas of Stoicism and introduces the reader to the different ancient authors and sources that they will encounter when exploring Stoicism. The range of sources that are drawn upon in the... more...

  • Popper's Legacyby Raphael Sassower

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 29.95

    The work of Karl Popper has had extraordinary influence across the fields of scientific and social thought. Widely regarded as one of the greatest philosophers of science of the twentieth century, he was also a highly influential social and political philosopher, a proponent and defender of the "open society". "Popper's Legacy" examines Popper in the... more...

  • Cynicsby William Desmond

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 29.95

    Once regarded as a minor Socratic school, Cynicism is now admired as one of the more creative and influential philosophical movements in antiquity. First arising in the city-states of late classical Greece, Cynicism thrived through the Hellenistic and Roman periods, until the triumph of Christianity and the very end of pagan antiquity. In every age... more...

  • A Plato Primerby J.D.G. Evans

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 24.95

    "A Plato Primer" introduces beginning students and the general reader to the main theses, concepts and arguments in Plato's philosophy. Subtle, versatile and multi-faceted though Plato's thought undoubtedly is, it has a core that needs to be explored and savoured. Evans presents this core, as it appears over a large range of his works, spread out over... more...

  • The Philosophy of Hegelby Allen Speight

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 29.95

    Few philosophers can induce as much puzzlement among students as Hegel. His works are notoriously dense and make very few concessions for a readership unfamiliar with his systematic view of the world. Allen Speight's introduction to Hegel's philosophy takes a chronological perspective on the development of Hegel's system. In this way, some of the most... more...

  • Weltanschauung, Philosophie und Naturwissenschaft im 19. Jahrhundertby Kurt Bayertz; Myriam Gerhard; Walter Jaeschke

    Felix Meiner Verlag 2009; US$ 49.33

    Hauptbeschreibung Die heute vorherrschende Meinung, nur die Naturwissenschaften seien in der Lage, uns das richtige Weltbild zu geben, bedarf der Korrektur. Die Beiträge dieses Bandes zeigen, daß der Diskurs, in dessen Verlauf den Naturwissenschaften im 19. Jahrhundert diese Rolle zugesprochen wurde, sich nicht auf Erkenntnisse stützen kann - sondern... more...

  • Weltanschauung, Philosophie und Naturwissenschaft im 19. Jahrhundertby Kurt Bayertz; Myriam Gerhard; Walter Jaeschke

    Felix Meiner Verlag 2007; US$ 49.33

    Hauptbeschreibung Darwins Schrift Über die Entstehung der Arten (1859) löste eine neue Debatte aus, die sich zeitlich und inhaltlich unmittelbar an den Materialismus- Streit anschloß. Umstritten war einerseits die wissenschaftliche Akzeptanz der Evolutionstheorie, andererseits die vor allem von Ernst Haeckel vertretene Verabsolutierung der Darwinschen... more...

  • Weltanschauung, Philosophie und Naturwissenschaft im 19. Jahrhundertby Kurt Bayertz; Myriam Gerhard; Walter Jaeschke

    Felix Meiner Verlag 2007; US$ 49.33

    Hauptbeschreibung In diesem Streit - ausgelöst durch Emil Du Bois-Reymonds Schrift Über die Grenzen des Naturerkennens (1872) - ging es nicht mehr um die Frage des Vorrangs der Naturwissenschaften vor Philosophie und Religion, sondern um die Grenzen, die auch dem materialistisch-darwinistischen Weltanschauungsreformprogramm gesetzt sind. Naturwissenschaft... more...
