He examines the... more...

    Oxford University Press 1999; US$ 54.99 US$ 47.29

    Most philosophers writing about personal identity in recent years claim that what it takes for us to persist through time is a matter of psychology.

He defines human... more...

  • Macrocognitionby Bryce Huebner

    Oxford University Press 2013; US$ 69.00 US$ 59.34

    This book develops a novel approach to distributed cognition and collective intentionality.

  • Introspection and Consciousnessby Declan Smithies; Daniel Stoljar

    Oxford University Press 2012; US$ 79.99 US$ 68.79

  • Apprehensionby Lynn Holt

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    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...

    OUP Oxford 2016; US$ 72.99 US$ 62.77

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