    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 154.00

    The essays collected in this volume explore the fundamental issues of philosophical realism, including metaphysical realism: Do things exist and have properties independently of being objects of thought or perception? epistemological realism: Is it possible to know any part of reality in and of itself? and ontological realism: Are there... more...

  • Understanding Rationalismby Charlie Huenemann

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 24.95

    The three great historical philosophers most often associated with rationalism - Descartes, Spinoza and Leibniz - opened up ingenious and breathtaking vistas upon the world.

  • The New Pragmatismby Alan Malachowski

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 29.95

    Some hundred years after its inception, Pragmatism has reclaimed centre stage, not just within philosophy, but also within intellectual culture as a whole. This book sets out to explain what it is about Pragmatism that makes it such a distinctively attractive prospect to so many thinkers, even in previously hostile traditions. Alan Malachowski sets... more...

  • Phenomenal Consciousnessby Dimitris Platchias

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 29.95

    How can the fine-grained phenomenology of conscious experience arise from neural processes in the brain? How does a set of action potentials (nerve impulses) become like the feeling of pain in one's experience? Contemporary neuroscience is teaching us that our mental states correlate with neural processes in the brain. However, although we know that... more...

  • Understanding Naturalismby Jack Ritchie

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 24.95

    Many contemporary Anglo-American philosophers describe themselves as naturalists. But what do they mean by that term? Popular naturalist slogans like, "there is no first philosophy" or "philosophy is continuous with the natural sciences" are far from illuminating. "Understanding Naturalism" provides a clear and readable survey of the main strands in... more...

  • Understanding Phenomenologyby David R. Cerbone

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 24.95

    "Understanding Phenomenology" provides a guide to one of the most important schools of thought in modern philosophy.

  • Analytic Versus Continentalby James Chase; Jack Reynolds

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 29.95

    Throughout much of the twentieth century, the relationship between analytic and continental philosophy has been one of disinterest, caution or hostility. Recent debates in philosophy have highlighted some of the similarities between the two approaches and even envisaged a post-continental and post-analytic philosophy. Opening with a history of key... more...

  • Lebendige Seelsorge 6/2014by Erich Garhammer; Bernhard Spielberg

    Echter Verlag 2014; US$ 6.10

    Manche und mancher hat eventuell den resignierten Eindruck, dass die gegenwärtigen Umbauten der verfassten Kirche chaotisch und richtungslos verlaufen. Viele Metaphern nehmen den deutlich gefühlten Mangel an Navigationssicherheit auf. "Wir fliegen nur noch auf Sicht", hörte ich neulich. Oder: "Wir bräuchten jetzt Wege. Wegweiser, vor... more...
