  • 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? If so, are they irreducible, or can modal facts be explained in other terms? This volume presents new work on modality by established leaders in the field and by up-and-coming philosophers. Between them, the... more...

  • Doubt Truth to be a Liarby Graham Priest

    Clarendon Press 2005; US$ 37.99

    Dialetheism is the view that some contradictions are true. This is a view which runs against orthodoxy in logic and metaphysics since Aristotle, and has implications for many of the core notions of philosophy. Doubt Truth to Be a Liar explores these implications for truth, rationality, negation, and the nature of logic, and develops further the defence... more...

  • Fundamental Uncertaintyby Professor Silva Marzetti Dall'aste Brandolini; Professor Roberto Scazzieri

    Palgrave Macmillan 2010; US$ 120.00

    This volume addresses the subject of uncertainty from the point of view of an extended conception of rationality.

  • Putting Logic in its Placeby David Christensen

    Oxford University Press 2004; US$ 38.99

    What role, if any, does formal logic play in characterizing epistemically rational belief? Traditionally, belief is seen in a binary way - either one believes a proposition, or one doesn't. Given this picture, it is attractive to impose certain deductive constraints on rational belief: that one's beliefs be logically consistent, and that one... more...

  • The Nature and Structure of Contentby Jeffrey C. King

    Clarendon Press 2007; US$ 37.99

    Belief in propositions has had a long and distinguished history in analytic philosophy. Three of the founding fathers of analytic philosophy, Gottlob Frege, Bertrand Russell, and G. E. Moore, believed in propositions. Many philosophers since then have shared this belief; and the belief is widely, though certainly not universally, accepted among philosophers... more...

  • The Nature of Necessityby Alvin Plantinga

    Clarendon Press 1978; US$ 49.99

    This is a reissue of a book which is an exploration and defence of the notion of modality 'de re', the idea that objects have both essential and accidental properties. It is one of the first full-length studies of the modalities to emerge from the debate to which Saul Kripke, David Lewis, Ruth Marcus and others have contributed.The argument... more...

  • Giving Reasonsby Lilian Bermejo Luque

    Springer 2011; US$ 159.00

    This book provides a new, linguistic approach to Argumentation Theory. Its main goal is to integrate the logical, dialectical and rhetorical dimensions of argumentation in a model providing a unitary treatment of its justificatory and persuasive powers. This model takes as its basis Speech Acts Theory in order to characterize argumentation as a second-order... more...

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1980; US$ 102.00
