    De Gruyter 2007; US$ 224.00

    This volume introduces the concept of late Renaissance philosophy to cover those intellectual currents in pre-mid 17th century Germany that saw themselves as inheritors of the (Italian) Renaissance but at the same time amalgamated their speculations with established Lutheran or Reformed metaphysics.

  • The Existential Graphs of Charles S. Peirceby Don D. Roberts

    De Gruyter 1973; US$ 56.00

  • Faith in the Enlightenmentby Lieven Boeve; Joeri Schrijvers; Wessel Stoker

    Editions Rodopi 2006; US$ 105.00

    One of the urgent tasks of modern philosophy is to find a path between the rationalism of the Enlightenment and the relativism of postmodernism.

The task is to find ways to broaden the scope of rational thought without losing its critical... more...

  • Giordano Brunoby Heinrich von Stein

    Diplomica Verlag 2010; US$ 7.00

    "Das ist der Mutterschmerz der Wahrheit, daß sie den Schoß zerreißt, der sie gebiert. Ein jedes Neuerschaute wird für den, der es erschaut hat, ruhlose Qual.

Der umstrittene Dichter und Philosoph Heinrich Freiherr von Stein schreibt... more...
