    University of Ottawa Press 1996; US$ 14.99

    By delving into the history and envelopment of logic from its beginnings to the modern era, George Englebretsen rehabilitates term logic and demonstrates that an enhanced traditional logic remains a viable possibility.

    Emerging from the Brentano-Husserl tradition, this volume charts new ground in the conceptual discourse of questioning and answering.

  • Doubt Truth to be a Liarby Graham Priest

    Clarendon Press 2005; US$ 43.99 US$ 37.83

    Dialetheism is the view that some contradictions are true.
