  • The Last Wordby Thomas Nagel

    Oxford University Press 1996; US$ 24.99

    If there is such a thing as reason, it has to be universal. Reason must reflect objective principles whose validity is independent of our point of view--principles that anyone with enough intelligence ought to be able to recognize as correct. But this generality of reason is what relativists and subjectivists deny in ever-increasing numbers. And such... more...

  • Understanding Naturalismby Jack Ritchie

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 24.95

    Many contemporary Anglo-American philosophers describe themselves as naturalists. But what do they mean by that term? Popular naturalist slogans like, "there is no first philosophy" or "philosophy is continuous with the natural sciences" are far from illuminating. "Understanding Naturalism" provides a clear and readable survey of the main strands in... more...

  • Truthby Chase Wrenn

    Wiley 2014; US$ 22.95

    What is truth? Is there anything that all truths have in common that makes them true rather than false? Is truth independent of human thought, or does it depend in some way on what we believe or what we would be justified in believing? In what sense, if any, is it better for beliefs or statements to be true than to be false? In this engaging and... more...

  • The Nature of Scientific Thinkingby Jan Faye

    Palgrave Macmillan 2014; US$ 110.00

    Scientific thinking must be understood as an activity. The acts of interpretation, representation, and explanation are the cognitive processes by which scientific thinking leads to understanding. The book explores the nature of these processes and describes how scientific thinking can only be grasped from a pragmatic perspective. more...

  • Reason and Explanationby Ted Poston

    Palgrave Macmillan 2014; US$ 95.00

    In this new explanationist account of epistemic justification, Poston argues that the explanatory virtues provide all the materials necessary for a plausible account of justified belief. There are no purely autonomous reasons. Rather reasons occur only within an explanatory coherent set of beliefs. more...

  • Knowledge First?by Aidan McGlynn

    Palgrave Macmillan 2014; US$ 95.00

    According to a long tradition, questions about the nature of knowledge are to be answered by analyzing it as a species of true belief. In light of the apparent failure of this approach, knowledge first philosophy takes knowledge as the starting point in epistemology. Knowledge First? offers the first overview of this approach. more...

  • Scientific Concepts and Investigative Practiceby Uljana Feest; Friedrich Steinle

    De Gruyter 2012; US$ 154.00

    Recent philosophy and history of science have seen a surge of interest in the role of concepts in scientific research. Combining philosophical and historical scholarship, the articles in this volume investigate the ways in which scientists form and use concepts, rather than in what the concepts themselves represent. The fields treated range from mathematics... more...
