  • Action and Existenceby Dr James Swindal

    Palgrave Macmillan 2011; US$ 95.00

    Since the pioneering work of Donald Davidson on action, many philosophers have taken critical stances on his causal account.

    De Gruyter 2004; US$ 125.00

    When Reschers Process Metaphysics (1996) was published, it was widely acclaimed as a major step towards the academic recognition of a mode of thought that has otherwise been confined within sharp scholarly boundaries.
