  • British Logic in the Nineteenth Centuryby Dov M. Gabbay; John Woods

    Elsevier Science 2008; US$ 270.00

    The present volume of the Handbook of the History of Logic is designed to establish 19th century Britain as a substantial force in logic, developing new ideas, some of which would be overtaken by, and other that would anticipate, the century's later capitulation to the mathematization of logic. British Logic in the Nineteenth Century is indispensable... more...

  • Buddhist Philosophy of Language in Indiaby Lawrence J. McCrea; Parimal G. Patil

    Columbia University Press 2010; US$ 29.99

    Jñanasrimitra (975-1025) was regarded by both Buddhists and non-Buddhists as the most important Indian philosopher of his generation. His theory of exclusion combined a philosophy of language with a theory of conceptual content, or, in simpler terms, an investigation into the nature of our words and thoughts. His theory informed nearly all the work... more...

  • A Chance for Possibilityby Alexander Steinberg

    De Gruyter 2013; US$ 119.00

    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 awarded the 2012... more...

  • Cognition and Chanceby Raymond S. Nickerson

    Taylor and Francis 2004; US$ 78.95

    Lack of ability to think probabilistically makes one prone to a variety of irrational fears and vulnerable to scams designed to exploit probabilistic naiveté, impairs decision making under uncertainty, facilitates the misinterpretation of statistical information, and precludes critical evaluation of likelihood claims. Cognition and Chance presents... more...

  • The Concepts Used to Analyze “Culture”by Dennis Sobolev

    The Edwin Mellen Press 2010; US$ 199.95

    This study is devoted to the stratified description and analysis of the unconscious mechanisms of culture: the mechanisms that form the human being, as an empirical subject in its actual existence. more...

  • Content and Modalityby Judith Thomson; Alex Byrne

    Clarendon Press 2006; US$ 109.99

    Eleven distinguished philosophers have contributed specially written essays on a set of topics much debated in recent years, including physicalism, qualia, semantic competence, conditionals, presuppositions, two-dimensional semantics, and the relation between logic and metaphysics. All these topics are prominent in the work of Robert Stalnaker, a major... more...

  • The Cunning of Reasonby Martin Hollis

    Cambridge University Press 1988; US$ 36.00

    This book is a philosophers' attempt to bring together ideas put forward by economists, sociologists and political theorists. The author begins by exploring the economist's assumption that action is rational if it helps to achieve the agent's goals as efficiently as possible. The assumption is explored with the aid of rational-choice theory and game-theory,... more...

  • Deducibility and Decidabilityby R. R. Rockingham Gill

    Taylor and Francis 2002; US$ 54.95

  • Defeasibility in Philosophyby Claudia Blöser; Mikae Janvid; Hannes Ole Matthiessen; Marcus Willaschek

    Editions Rodopi 2013; US$ 70.00

    Defeasibility, most generally speaking, means that given some set of conditions A, something else B will hold, unless or until defeating conditions C apply. While the term was introduced into philosophy by legal philosopher H.L.A. Hart in 1949, today, the concept of defeasibility is employed in many different areas of philosophy. This volume for the... more...
