    Colin McGinn presents his latest work on consciousness in ten interlinked essays, four of them previously unpublished.

  • Physical Realizationby Sydney Shoemaker

    Clarendon Press 2007; US$ 26.99

    How can physicalism be true? How can all facts about the world, including facts about our mental states, be constituted by facts about the distribution in the world of physical properties? Sydney Shoemaker's answer to this question involves showing how the mental properties of a person can be 'realized in' the physical properties of that person, and... more...

  • Nothing Mattersby Ronald Green

    John Hunt Publishing 2011; US$ 13.99

    Is nothing everything? As strange as that question looks at first sight, it will definitely make sense after reading NOTHING MATTERS. Provocative and accessible, free of jargon, NOTHING MATTERS shows that there is more to nothing than meets the eye. History, the arts, philosophy, politics, religion, cosmology - all are touched by nothing. Who, for... more...

  • Panpsychismby Peter Ells

    John Hunt Publishing 2011; US$ 16.99

    Materialism asserts that the universe and everything within it, including ourselves, is a deterministic machine, trapped until the end of time on the rigid tracks of inviolable laws. Only the mechanisms of physics - forces, electrical charges, and so on - are consequential; nothing else matters. Experiences, such as the taste of honey, feelings, thoughts,... more...

  • Guerrilla Metaphysicsby Graham Harman

    Open Court 2011; US$ 34.99

    The current fashions in both analytic and continental philosophy are staunchly anti-metaphysical. There is supposedly no way to talk about the world itself the philosopher is confined to antiseptic discussions of language, or of other modes of human access to the world. In this provocative work, Graham Harman expands the discussion from his previous... more...

  • Discourse, Figureby Jean-François Lyotard; John Mowitt; Antony Hudek

    University of Minnesota Press 2010; US$ 40.00

    Jean-Francois Lyotard is recognized as one of the most significant French philosophers of the twentieth century. Although nearly all of his major writing has been translated into English, one important work has until now been unavailable. "Discourse, Figure" is Lyotard's thesis. Provoked in part by Lacan's influential seminars in... more...

  • Beyond Physicalismby Daniel D. Hutto

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2000; US$ 108.00

    Unlike standard attempts to address the so-called ‘hard problem’ of consciousness, which assume our understanding of consciousness is unproblematic, this book begins by focusing on phenomenology and is devoted to clarifying the relations between intentionality, propositional content and experience. In particular, it argues that the subjectivity... more...
