  • Vernunft und Vorsehungby Matthias Hoesch

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 154.00

    This study examines the extent to which Kant?s ideas about history rely upon elements of Christian eschatology and the problems this creates.

The author puts these texts in a broader historical context,... more...

  • Knowledgeby Jennifer Nagel

    Oxford University Press 2014; US$ 7.99

    What is knowledge? How does it differ from mere belief? Do you need to be able to justify a claim in order to count as knowing it? How can we know that the outer world is real and not a dream?Questions like these are ancient ones, and the branch of philosophy dedicated to answering them - epistemology - has been active for thousands of years. In this... more...

  • Reason and Explanationby Ted Poston

    Palgrave Macmillan 2014; US$ 95.00

Kassler details... more...

  • Freeby Alfred R. Mele

    Oxford University Press 2014; US$ 14.99

    Does free will exist? The question has fueled heated debates spanning from philosophy to psychology and religion. The answer has major implications, and the stakes are high.
