Most popular at the top

  • Introduction to Objectivist Epistemologyby Ayn Rand; Harry Binswanger; Leonard Peikoff

    Penguin Group US 1990; US$ 20.00

    Today man's mind is under attack by all the leading schools of philosophy. We are told that we cannot trust our senses, that logic is arbitrary, that concepts have no basis in reality. Ayn Rand opposes that torrent of nihilism, and she provides the alternative in this eloquent presentation of the essential nature--and power--of man's conceptual faculty.... more...

  • Custom and Reason in Humeby Henry E. Allison

    Oxford University Press 2010; US$ 34.99

    Henry Allison examines the central tenets of Hume's epistemology and cognitive psychology, as contained in the Treatise of Human Nature. Allison takes a distinctive two-level approach. On the one hand, he considers Hume's thought in its own terms and historical context. So considered, Hume is viewed as a naturalist, whose project in the first... more...

  • The Construction of Social Realityby John R. Searle

    Free Press 2010; US$ 16.95

    This short treatise looks at how we construct a social reality from our sense impressions; at how, for example, we construct a 'five-pound note' with all that implies in terms of value and social meaning, from the printed piece of paper we see and touch. more...

  • What Is Meaning?by Scott Soames

    Princeton University Press 2010; US$ 19.95

    The tradition descending from Frege and Russell has typically treated theories of meaning either as theories of meanings (propositions expressed), or as theories of truth conditions. However, propositions of the classical sort don't exist, and truth conditions can't provide all the information required by a theory of meaning. In this book, one of... more...

  • An Enquiry Concerning Human Understandingby David Hume; Eric Steinberg

    Hackett Publishing Company, Inc. 1993; US$ 5.95

    A landmark of Enlightenment thought, Hume's An Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding is accompanied here by two shorter works that shed light on it: A Letter from a Gentleman to His Friend in Edinburgh , Hume's response to those accusing him of atheism, of advocating extreme skepticism, and of undermining the foundations of morality; and his... more...

  • The View From Nowhereby Thomas Nagel

    Oxford University Press, USA 1986; US$ 22.99

    Human beings have the unique ability to view the world in a detached way: We can think about the world in terms that transcend our own experience or interest, and consider the world from a vantage point that is, in Nagel's words, "nowhere in particular". At the same time, each of us is a particular person in a particular place, each with... more...

  • Meaningby Paul Horwich

    Clarendon Press 1998; US$ 44.99

    What is meaning? Paul Horwich presents an original philosophical theory, demonstrates its richness, and defends it against all comers. At the core of his theory is the idea, made famous by Wittgenstein, that the meaning of a word derives from its use; Horwich articulates this idea in a new way that will restore it to the prominence that it deserves.... more...
