Epistemology

  • Externalismby Mark Rowlands

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 29.95

    It is commonly held that our thoughts, beliefs, desires and feelings - the mental phenomena that we instantiate - are constituted by states and processes that occur inside our head. The view known as externalism, however, denies that mental phenomena are internal in this sense. The mind is not purely in the head. Mental phenomena are hybrid entities... more...

  • Scepticismby Neil Gascoigne

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 44.95

    The history of scepticism is assumed by many to be the history of failed responses to a problem first raised by Descartes. While the thought of the ancient sceptics is acknowledged, their principle concern with how to live a good life is regarded as bearing little, if any, relation to the work of contemporary epistemologists. In "Scepticism" Neil... more...

  • Knowledgeby Michael Welbourne

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 29.95

    What is it about knowledge that makes us value it more highly than mere true belief? This question lies at the heart of epistemology and has challenged philosophers ever since it was first posed by Plato. Michael Welbourne's examination of the historical and contemporary answers to this question provides both an excellent introduction to the development... more...

  • W.V.O.Quineby Alex Orenstein

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 29.95

    The most influential philosopher in the analytic tradition of his time, Willard Van Orman Quine (1908-2000) changed the way we think about language and its relation to the world. His rejection of the analytic/synthetic distinction, his scepticism about modal logic and essentialism, his celebrated theme of the indeterminacy of translation, and his advocacy... more...

  • 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...

  • Kognition bei Menschen und Tierenby Tobias Starzak

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 112.00

    What distinguishes humans from all other animals? In this book, rationality, social learning, and cooperation ? the basis of cultural evolution ? are placed under the microscope from a comparative philosophical perspective. The view is developed that anthropological difference is based upon the sum of many small differences, and that we are more like... 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...

  • 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...

  • Wahrheit, Wissen und Erkenntnis in der Literaturby Christoph Demmerling; Ingrid Vendrell Ferran

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 112.00

    The essays in this volume examine the connection between literature and different forms of insight. The backdrop for the studies is the recent philosophical debate about the nature of knowledge and the status of fictional texts. The book is divided into four parts, each of which explores the relationship between literature and knowledge with a different... more...

  • Spinoza and Medieval Jewish Philosophyby Steven Nadler

    Cambridge University Press 2014; US$ 77.00

    The first of its kind, this essay collection offers an extensive examination of Spinoza's relationship to medieval Jewish philosophy. more...
