    Oxford University Press 2012; US$ 79.99

    OUP Oxford 2016; US$ 72.99

    Twelve essays by prominent contemporary epistemologists provide a careful examination and critical evaluation of traditional epistemic internalism.

    This book introduces and explores the role of apprehension in reasoning - setting out the problems, determining the vocabulary, fixing the boundaries, and questioning what is often taken for granted. Lynn Holt argues that a robust conception of rationality must include intellectual virtues which cannot be reduced to a set of rules for reasoners, and... more...

    German Idealism as Constructivism is the culmination of many years of research by distinguished philosopher Tom Rockmore?it is his definitive statement on the debate about German idealism between proponents of representationalism and those of constructivism that still plagues our grasp of the history of German idealism and the whole epistemological... more...

  • Performance Epistemologyby Miguel Ángel Fernández Vargas

    OUP Oxford 2016; US$ 64.99

    Performance-based epistemology conceives the normativity involved in epistemic evaluation as a special case of a pattern of evaluation that can be applied to any domain where there are agents that carry out performances with an aim. This volume presents new essays by leading epistemologists on the foundations and applications of this approach. more...

  • Epistemology and Emotionsby Georg Brun; Ulvi Doguoglu

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    Undoubtedly, emotions sometimes thwart our epistemic endeavours. But do they also contribute to epistemic success? The thesis that emotions 'skew the epistemic landscape', as Peter Goldie puts it in this volume, has long been discussed in epistemology. Recently, however, philosophers have called for a systematic reassessment of the epistemic relevance... more...

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    Judgment After Arendt is both the first full-length study of Hannah Arendt's The Life of the Mind and, at the same time, a philosophical work on the core concepts of thinking, willing and judging.

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    In the preface to his Philosophical Investigations Ludwig Wittgenstein expresses pessimism about the culture of his time and doubts as to whether his ideas would be understood in such a time: 'I make them public with doubtful feelings.

  • Inference to the Best Explanationby Peter Lipton

    Taylor and Francis 2003; US$ 43.95

    How do we go about weighing evidence, testing hypotheses, and making inferences?
