    This book is a philosophers' attempt to bring together ideas put forward by economists, sociologists and political theorists.

  • Why Is Everyone Else Wrong?by Tibor R. Machan

    Springer 2010; US$ 49.95

    Especially when there is a lot of political rhetoric in the air, those of us with strong political convictions are inclined to reflect on just why we hold certain views even as others who are basically like us hold very different ones. Social scientists and other thinkers struggle to explain it, but the puzzle remains - in part because they, too, disagree... more...

    Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group 2011; US$ 12.76

    This sharply intelligent, consistently provocative book takes the reader on an astonishing, thought-provoking voyage into the realm of delightful uncertainty--a world of paradox in which logical argument leads to contradiction and common sense is seemingly rendered irrelevant.

  • Something To Reckon Withby George Englebretsen

    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.

  • Homo Interrogansby John Bruin

    University of Ottawa Press 2001; US$ 14.99

    Emerging from the Brentano-Husserl tradition, this volume charts new ground in the conceptual discourse of questioning and answering. John Bruin examines the "logic" of interrogation and makes the case that intentionality itself has the structure of question and answer. Here, he breaks rank with the better known and more traditional and sets out to... more...

  • Modalityby Bob Hale; Aviv Hoffmann

    Oxford University Press 2010; US$ 84.99

    The philosophy of modality investigates necessity and possibility, and related notions--are they objective features of mind-independent reality?

Between them, the... more...
