  • Keeping Balanceby Diana Abad

    De Gruyter 2007; US$ 119.00

    What is desert? The aim of this book is to give an analysis of this notion.

This book examines in detail the working mechanisms... more...

  • Merit, Meaning, and Human Bondageby Nomy Arpaly

    Princeton University Press 2009; US$ 45.00

    Perhaps everything we think, feel, and do is determined, and humans--like stones or clouds--are slaves to the laws of nature. Would that be a terrible state? Philosophers who take the incompatibilist position think so, arguing that a deterministic world would be one without moral responsibility and perhaps without true love, meaningful art, and real... more...

  • Between Chance and Choiceby Harald Atmanspacher; Robert Bishop

    Andrews UK 2014; US$ 23.99

After the... more...
