    Palgrave Macmillan 2015; US$ 95.00

    We have known for over a thousand years that the brain underlies behavioral expression, but effective scientific study of the brain is only very recent. Two things converge in this book: a great respect for neuroscience and its many variations, and a sense of investigation and inquiry demythologized. Think of it as foraging for coherence. more...

    Intentionality is one of the central problems of modern philosophy. How can a thought, action or belief be about something?

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 54.95

    This innovative study re-evaluates the philosophical significance of aesthetics in the context of contemporary debates on the nature of philosophy.

    The book traces connections between the literary experiments of Emerson, Poe, Melville, and Henry James, and the emergence of classical American pragmatism.

    Oxford University Press 2011; US$ 30.99 US$ 26.65

    Pragmatic Modernism traces an alternative strain of modernism influenced by pragmatist philosophy and characterized by its commitment to gradualism, continuity, and habit rather than spectacular events and radical rupture.
