  • "Anerkennung" als Prinzip der Kritischen Theorieby Hans-Christoph Schmidt am Busch

    De Gruyter 2011; US$ 168.00

    The author shows why implementing the project of a critical social theory in the tradition of the Frankfurt School based on recognition theory can yield promising results. In this context, the category of recognition is of special value because by using recognition theory, social relationships can be both analyzed and criticized. This is shown in the... more...

  • "Cato Peripateticus" ? stoische und peripatetische Ethik im Dialogby Philip Schmitz

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 112.00

    Book 3 of Cicero?s de finibus is generally regarded as an accurate description of Stoic ethics. This study shows that Cicero did not present Stoic orthodoxy but combined it with contemporary peripatetic theory. This has implications for our understanding of Stoa and Peripatos and offers new insights into Cicero?s methods and the philosophical discourse... more...

  • "Einige werden posthum geboren"by Marco Brusotti; Renate Reschke

    De Gruyter 2012; US$ 168.00

    Nietzsche?s thinking is unparalleled in its contradictory effects and it continues to be relevant. Even today, opinions on him diverge strongly. Throughout the 20th century, philosophies, art movements and political ideologies have oscillated between euphoria and condemnation, affirmation and an ignoring silence. Incorrect and abusive readings in fascist... more...

  • "Idea matheseos universae"by Klaus-Dieter Herbst; Helmut G. Walther

    Franz Steiner Verlag 2012; US$ 25.37

    Der Mathematiker Erhard Weigel (1625?1699) gilt bisher als einer der bedeutendsten deutschen Vertreter der sog. "Frühaufklärung". Dieser Band hinterfragt nun diesen traditionellen und deshalb allzu bequemen philosophiegeschichtlichen Begriff nach seiner Erklärungsfunktion innerhalb der modernen Wissenschaftsgeschichte. In komparatistischer... more...

  • "Poor Paris!"by George Pattison

    De Gruyter 1999; US$ 133.00

  • "Rasse" und "Züchtung" bei Nietzscheby Gerd Schank

    De Gruyter 2000; US$ 196.00

    In this text, the author takes issue with the contention that Nietzsche was a precursor of Nazi ideology: Nietzsche sees race and breeding rather as a cultivation, meaning the development of European peoples and people to supranational Europeans. more...

  • 'Schuld' im Kontext der Handlungslehre Hegelsby Britta Caspers

    Felix Meiner Verlag 2012; US$ 144.45

    Hauptbeschreibung Die philosophische Rede von der Schuld umgreift ein breites Bedeutungsspektrum, von der Existenz- und Religionsphilosophie bis zur Ästhetik. Hegel bestimmt den Begriff der Schuld jedoch vornehmlich im Zusammenhang seiner Lehre von der Handlung als einem konstitutiven Bestandteil seiner Moralitätskonzeption. Zentraler Gegenstand... more...

  • "The Great Ocean of Knowledge"by Ann Talbot

    BRILL 2010; US$ 147.00

    This book explores the way in which, working within the investigative tradition associated with the Royal Society, the philosopher John Locke (1632-1704) used travellers' reports to develop a form of comparative social anthropology which was to inform his major philosophical works. more...

  • "Vernatürlichung"by Andrea Christian Bertino

    De Gruyter 2011; US$ 182.00

    A classical option in philosophical thought is to view the human as a naturally cultural being. This can easily run the risk of turning into reductionism. Its epistemic boundary and its practical interest still need to be carefully considered, even today. Herder and Nietzsche do so in different, but nevertheless related, ways. This book brings their... more...

  • The "Enneads" of Plotinusby Paul Kalligas

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 85.00

    This is the first volume of a groundbreaking commentary on one of the most important works of ancient philosophy, the Enneads of Plotinus?a text that formed the basis of Neoplatonism and had a deep influence on early Christian thought and medieval and Renaissance philosophy. This volume covers the first three of the six Enneads , as well as Porphyry?s... more...
