General works

  • Rawls and Religionby Tom Bailey; Valentina Gentile

    Columbia University Press 2015; US$ 29.99

    John Rawls?s influential theory of justice and public reason has often been thought to exclude religion from politics, out of fear of its illiberal and destabilizing potentials. It has therefore been criticized by defenders of religion for marginalizing and alienating the wealth of religious sensibilities, voices, and demands now present in contemporary... more...

  • Modernity between Wagner and Nietzscheby Brayton Polka

    Lexington Books 2015; US$ 79.99

    Modernity between Wagner and Nietzsche argues that the operas and writings of Wagner contradict the values that are fundamental to modernity.

  • Nelson Goodmanby Daniel Cohnitz; Marcus Rossberg

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 29.95

    Nelson Goodman's acceptance and critique of certain methods and tenets of positivism, his defence of nominalism and phenomenalism, his formulation of a new riddle of induction, his work on notational systems, and his analysis of the arts place him at the forefront of the history and development of American philosophy in the twentieth-century. However,... more...

  • Robert Brandomby Jeremy Wanderer

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 29.95

    "Robert Brandom" is one of the most significant philosophers writing today, yet paradoxically philosophers have found it difficult to get to grips with the details and implications of his work.

  • Rule-following and Meaningby Alexander Miller; Crispin Wright

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 39.95

    The rule-following debate, in its concern with the metaphysics and epistemology of linguistic meaning and mental content, goes to the heart of the most fundamental questions of contemporary philosophy of mind and language.

  • Hilary Putnamby Maximilian De Gaynesford

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 29.95

    Putnam is one of the most influential philosophers of recent times, and his authority stretches far beyond the confines of the discipline. However, there is a considerable challenge in presenting his work both accurately and accessibly. This is due to the width and diversity of his published writings and to his frequent spells of radical re-thinking.... more...

  • Montaigne and the Lives of the Philosophersby Alison Calhoun

    University of Delaware 2014; US$ 69.99

    This book rethinks Montaigne?s philosophical thought in terms of transversality by investigating the essayist?s debt to ancient life writers Diogenes Laertius and Plutarch. Its scope is therefore of interest to scholars of ancient and early modern life writing, ancient and early modern philosophy, as well as scholars of early modern literary history.... more...
