    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?

  • Sprache, Einstellung und Rationalitätby Pedro Schmechtig

  • 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...

  • Return From Exileby Ermanno Bencivenga

    Lexington Books 2013; US$ 69.99

  • Possible Worldsby Rod Girle

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 39.95

    Ever since Saul Kripke and others developed a semantic interpretation for modal logic, 'possible worlds' has been a much debated issue in contemporary metaphysics. To propose the idea of a possible world that differs in some way from our actual world - for example a world where the grass is red or where no people exist - can help us to analyse and... more...
