What is the will? And what is its relation to human action? Throughout history, philosophers have been fascinated by the idea of 'the will': the source of the drive that motivates human beings to act.

A classical option in philosophical thought is to view the human as a naturally cultural being. This can easily run the risk of turning into reductionism.

The question of agency is a key issue in social theory and research. The discourse of human agency as an effect of social relations is deeply intertwined with the history of sociological thought. However, in most recent discussions the role of non-humans gains a substantial impact concerning agency. Agency without Actors? New Approaches to Collective... more...

The Dialogues of Love by Yehudah Abravanel (c. 1465 c. 1525) is one of the most interesting examples of the encounter between Renaissance Platonism and Jewish tradition. Exploring some of the dialogic models for Yehudahs work as well as the influence of the Biblical commentaries by his father Isaac, this book re-reads the Dialogues in the light of... more...

Twentieth-century Scholarship on Aristotle's "De Memoria et Reminiscentia" was dominated by the view that Aristotle's theories of memory and recollection are basically very similar to ours. By means of a new critical edition of the Greek text, an essay on Aristotle's own theories and an essay on these theories as they were received... more...
