  • Wissen, was möglich istby Sebastian J. Müller

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 154.00

    This book investigates how it is possible for us to know what is metaphysically possible.

  • Scientific Realism in Particle Physicsby Matthias Egg

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 112.00

    Does particle physics really describe the basic constituents of the material world or is it just a useful tool for deriving empirical predictions? This book proposes a novel answer to that question, emphasizing the importance of causal reasoning for the justification of scientific claims. It thereby responds to general worries about scientific realism... more...

Indeed, far from refuting Locke, they illustrate his fundamental... more...

    Mohr Siebeck 2014; US$ 66.03

  • A Prosentential Theory of Truthby Dorothy Grover

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 37.50

    In a number of influential articles published since 1972, Dorothy Grover has developed the prosentential theory of truth. Brought together and published with a new introduction, these essays are even more impressive as a group than they were as single contributions to philosophy and linguistics. Denying that truth has an explanatory role, the prosentential... more...
