  • The Stability of Beliefby Hannes Leitgeb

    OUP Oxford 2017; US$ 84.99

    In everyday life we either express our beliefs in all-or-nothing terms or we resort to numerical probabilities: I believe it's going to rain or my chance of winning is one in a million. The Stability of Belief develops a theory of rational belief that allows us to reason with all-or-nothing belief and numerical belief simultaneously. more...

  • Contrastive Reasonsby Justin Snedegar

    OUP Oxford 2017; US$ 54.99

    Justin Snedegar develops and defends contrastivism about reasons.

  • Transcendental Arguments in Moral Theoryby Jens Peter Brune; Robert Stern; Micha H. Werner

    De Gruyter 2017; US$ 119.28

    Since Barry Stroud's classic paper in 1968, the general discussion on transcendental arguments tends to focus on examples from theoretical philosophy.

Nevertheless, transcendental reasoning continues to play a prominent role in some recent... more...

    Princeton University Press 2017; US$ 106.95 US$ 97.32

Since that time relevance logic has achieved an important place in the field of philosophy:... more...

  • Authority and Democracyby Christopher McMahon

    Princeton University Press 2017; US$ 46.50 US$ 42.32

    Should the democratic exercise of authority that we take for granted in the realm of government be extended to the managerial sphere? Exploring this question, Christopher McMahon develops a theory of government and management as two components of an integrated system of social authority that is essentially political in nature. He then considers where... more...

  • The Principle of Non-contradiction in Plato's Republicby Laurence Bloom

    Lexington Books 2017; US$ 99.99

    What sorts of things qualify as first principles of reasoning and what kind of justification for them can be offered?
