Humanism

  • "Vernatürlichung"by Andrea Christian Bertino

    De Gruyter 2011; US$ 182.00

    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. Its epistemic boundary and its practical interest still need to be carefully considered, even today. Herder and Nietzsche do so in different, but nevertheless related, ways. This book brings their... more...

  • 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. This book criticizes Davidson's event-causal view of action, and offers instead an agent causal view both to describe what an action is and to set a framework for how actions are explained. more...

  • Action and Responsibilityby Andrew Sneddon

    Springer 2006; US$ 209.00

    What makes an event count as an action? Typical answers appeal to the way in which the event was produced: e.g., perhaps an arm movement is an action when caused by mental states (in particular ways), but not when caused in other ways. Andrew Sneddon argues that this type of answer, which he calls "productionism", is methodologically and... more...

  • After Postmodernismby Dr Jan Faye

    Palgrave Macmillan 2011; US$ 95.00

    The philosophy of the humanistic sciences has been a blind-spot in analytic philosophy. This book argues that by adopting an appropriate pragmatic analysis of explanation and interpretation it is possible to show that scientific practice of humanistic sciences can be understood on similar lines to scientific practice of natural and social sciences. more...

  • Against Theory of Mindby Professor Ivan Leudar; Professor Alan Costall

    Palgrave Macmillan 2009; US$ 35.00

    The 'theory of mind' framework has been the fastest growing body of empirical research in contemporary psychology.

This book brings together disparate strands of ToM research, lays out historical roots of the idea and indicates better alternatives. more...

    Palgrave Macmillan 2011; US$ 95.00

  • Agency without Actors?by Jan-Hendrik Passoth; Birgit Peuker; Michael Schillmeier

    Taylor and Francis 2012; US$ 48.95

    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...
