  • Free Will and Action Explanationby Scott Sehon

    OUP Oxford 2016; US$ 72.99

    Do we have free will and moral responsibility? Is free will compatible with determinism? Scott Sehon addresses these key questions by focusing on an underlying issue: the nature of action explanation. He proposes a non-causal account of action and agency, according to which reason explanation of human behavior is teleological rather than causal. more...

  • The Ethics of Self-Defenseby Christian Coons; Michael Weber

    Oxford University Press 2016; US$ 28.99

  • Spinoza's Dreamby David Weissman

    De Gruyter 2016; US$ 126.00

    Meaning and nature are this book?s principal topics. Setting one against the other makes reality contentious. Is reality divided: nature vs. lived experience? Or is experience, with all its meanings and values, the complex expression of natural processes? Weissman champions the comprehensive naturalism anticipated by Aristotle and Spinoza: "... more...

  • Free Will and Reactive Attitudesby Paul Russell; Michael McKenna

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    The philosophical debate about free will and responsibility has been of great importance throughout the history of philosophy.

  • Good and Evilby Jackie Leach Scully; Pink Dandelion

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    In this multi-disciplinary collection we ask the question, 'What did, and do, Quakers think about good and evil?'

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    Engaging variously with the legacy of Paul L. Lehmann, these essays argue for a reorientation in Christian theology that better honours the formative power of the gospel to animate and shape doctrine and witness, as well as ethical and political life.

  • Military Medical Ethics for the 21st Centuryby Michael L. Gross; Don Carrick

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95
