  • Der Wert der Vagheitby Nora Kluck

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 140.00

    In classical logic, vagueness is an undesirable property for predicates. However, this study suggests for the first time the benefits of vagueness in natural language. Communicating through vague predicates is usually successful. They enable efficient, economical, and flexible communication. The study examines whether vagueness in the law has positive... more...

  • How To Do Things With Logicby C. Grant Luckhardt; William Bechtel; Grant Luckhardt

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 51.95

    In the past 15 years a host of critical thinking books have appeared that teach students to find flaws in the arguments of others by learning to detect a number of informal fallacies.

  • A Chance for Possibilityby Alexander Steinberg

    De Gruyter 2013; US$ 112.00

    As philosophers are keen to say, there is a possible world where Socrates is a carpenter. Plausibly, truths about what might or could not be the case are not basic but grounded in more fundamental features of reality. Steinberg develops this insight into a novel account of the supervenience structure of the modal realm. ? This study was awardedthe... more...

    De Gruyter 2013; US$ 154.00

  • Return From Exileby Ermanno Bencivenga

    Lexington Books 2013; US$ 69.99
