Most popular at the top

  • Wilfrid Sellarsby Willem A. DeVries

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 29.95

    Wilfrid Sellars (1912-89) has been called "the most profound and systematic epistemological thinker of the twentieth century" (Robert Brandom). He was in many respects ahead of his time, and many of his innovations have become widely acknowledged, for example, his attack on the "myth of the given", his functionalist treatment of intentional states,... more...

  • Sometimes Always True: Undogmatic Pluralism in Politics, Metaphysics, and Epistemologyby Jeremy Barris

    Fordham University Press 2014; US$ 41.99

    Sometimes Always True aims to resolve three connected problems. First, we need an undogmatic pluralist standpoint in political theory, metaphysics, and epistemology. But genuine pluralism suffers from the contradiction that making room for fundamental differences in outlook means making room for outlooks that exclude pluralism. Second, philosophy involves... more...

  • Identity, Consciousness and Valueby Peter Unger

    Oxford University Press 1992; US$ 77.99

    The topic of personal identity has prompted lively debates in recent philosophy. In a contribution to the discussion, the author of this treatise presents a psychologically aimed, but physically based, account of our identity over time. more...

  • A Treatise Concerning the Principles of Human Knowledgeby George Berkeley

    ReadHowYouWant 2009; US$ 4.99

    “A Treatise Concerning the Principles of Human Knowledge” is a book that largely seeks to counter the claims made by his contemporary philosophers about the nature of human perception. The author has asserted that there is an outer world that largely consists of ideas and not of physical forms. He goes on to conclude that this world owes... more...

  • Three Dialogues between Hylas and Philonousby George Berkeley

    ReadHowYouWant 2009; US$ 4.99

    An extension of Berkley’s ideas, the work presents his philosophy in the form of dialogues. The author has presented arguments to prove the existence of god and that the material world consists completely of ideas and not physical objects. He reiterates that there is a diety that maintains order and arrangement in the world around us. more...

  • Natur, Technik, Geistby Gregor Schiemann

    De Gruyter 2005; US$ 196.00

    We still follow the definitions of Nature already laid down by Aristotle and Descartes who saw Nature as being delineated from the non-natural (e.g. culture, technology). Schiemann defends the continuing validity of these traditional ways of understanding, but argues that that they prove to be valid only within limited contexts. Depending on the particular... more...

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

    Penguin Group US 1990; US$ 16.99

    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...

  • Epistemology and the Socialby Evandro Agazzi; Javier Echeverria; Amparo Gomez Rodriguez

    Editions Rodopi 2008; US$ 64.40

    Epistemology had to come to terms with “the social” on two different occasions. The first was represented by the dispute about the epistemological status of the “social” sciences, and in this case the already well established epistemology of the natural sciences seemed to have the right to dictate the conditions for a discipline... more...

  • The Self-Correcting Enterpriseby P. Michael Wolf; Norris Mark Lance

    Editions Rodopi 2006; US$ 84.00

    This volume presents ten new essays on the work of Wilfrid Sellars and its implications for contemporary philosophy. Contributors run the gamut from established voices in the Sellarsian literature to the newest voices in the field. It addresses topics ranging from cognitive science and philosophy of mind to epistemology and the philosophy of language.... more...
