  • Debating Dispositionsby Gregor Damschen; Robert Schnepf; Karsten Stüber

    De Gruyter 2009; US$ 119.00

    Ordinary language and scientific discourse are filled with linguistic expressions for dispositional properties such as ?soluble,? ?elastic,? ?reliable,? and ?humorous.? We characterize objects in all domains ? physical objects as well as human persons ? with the help of dispositional expressions. Hence, the concept of a disposition has historically... more...

  • The Significance of the Hypothetical in the Natural Sciencesby Michael Heidelberger; Gregor Schiemann

    How was the hypothetical character of theories of experience thought about throughout the history of science? The  essays cover periods from the middle ages to the 19th and 20th centuries.

Philosophers have tended to read Descartes's seminal work in an occasional way, examining its treatment of individual topics while ignoring other parts of the text. In contrast, John... more...

  • Moral Epistemologyby Aaron Zimmerman

    Taylor and Francis 2010; US$ 41.95

    How do we know right from wrong? Do we even have moral knowledge? Moral epistemology studies these and related questions about our understanding of virtue and vice.
