  • Rethinking Logicby Carlo Cellucci

    Springer 2013; US$ 179.00

    This volume examines the limitations of mathematical logic and proposes a new approach to logic intended to overcome them. To this end, the book compares mathematical logic with earlier views of logic, both in the ancient and in the modern age, including those of Plato, Aristotle, Bacon, Descartes, Leibniz, and Kant. From the comparison it is... more...

  • Visual Reasoning with Diagramsby Amirouche Moktefi; Sun-Joo Shin

    Springer 2013; US$ 69.95

    Logic, the discipline that explores valid reasoning, does not need to be limited to a specific form of representation but should include any form as long as it allows us to draw sound conclusions from given information. The use of diagrams has a long but unequal history in logic: The golden age of diagrammatic logic of the 19th century thanks to Euler... more...

  • Rules for Reasoningby Richard E. Nisbett; Richard E. Nisbett

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 78.95

    This book examines two questions: Do people make use of abstract rules such as logical and statistical rules when making inferences in everyday life? Can such abstract rules be changed by training? Contrary to the spirit of reductionist theories from behaviorism to connectionism, there is ample evidence that people do make use of abstract rules of... more...

  • Wittgenstein über das Verstehenby Elena Tatievskaya

    De Gruyter Open 2009; US$ 167.00

    Das Verstehen legt Wittgenstein einem Ich bei: Einer versteht, indem er Zeichen anwendet. Anwendbare Zeichen sind Symbole: Sie werden bedeutsam, wenn sie in Zusammenhang mit anderen Zeichen gebracht werden und eine Funktion in der kognitiven oder praktischen Aneignung der Welt erfüllen. Symbole gehören zu Symbolsystemen und können als Vorschriften... more...

  • Sprache, Einstellung und Rationalitätby Pedro Schmechtig

    De Gruyter 2004; US$ 133.00

    Sprache, Einstellung und Rationalität stellen zentrale Begriffe eines komplexen Zusammenhangs dar, der in seiner philosophischen Tragweite noch viel zu wenig verstanden wird. In zweierlei Hinsicht trägt die vorliegende Arbeit dazu bei, dieses Desiderat zu beseitigen: Im ersten Teil wird dafür argumentiert, daß Ansätze, die glaubhaft machen wollen,... more...

  • Biological and Cultural Bases of Human Inferenceby Riccardo Viale; Daniel Andler; Lawrence A. Hirschfeld

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 95.00

    Biological and Cultural Bases of Human Inference addresses the interface between social science and cognitive science. The volume updates the debate between innatism and culturalism regarding human cognitive abilities, exploring which human social more...

  • Reason and Rationalityby Maria Cristina Amoretti; Nicla Vassallo

    De Gruyter 2013; US$ 125.00

    Reason and rationality represent crucial elements of the self-image of human beings and have unquestionably been among the most debated issues in Western philosophy, dating from ancient Greece, through the Middle Ages, and to the present day. Many words and thoughts have already been spent trying to define the nature and standards of reason and rationality,... more...

  • Towards a General Theory of Classificationsby Daniel Parrochia; Pierre Neuville

    Springer 2013; US$ 79.95

    This book is an essay on the epistemology of classifications. Its main purpose is not to provide an exposition of an actual mathematical theory of classifications, that is, a general theory which would be available to any kind of them: hierarchical or non-hierarchical, ordinary or fuzzy, overlapping or non-overlapping, finite or infinite, and so on,... more...

  • 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...

  • Introduction to Logicby Michael Genesereth; Eric Kao

    Morgan & Claypool Publishers 2013; US$ 25.00

    This book is a gentle but rigorous introduction to Formal Logic. It is intended primarily for use at the college level. However, it can also be used for advanced secondary school students, and it can be used at the start of graduate school for those who have not yet seen the material. The approach to teaching logic used here emerged from more than... more...
