General works

  • How Do You Know?by Russell Hardin

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 19.95

    How do ordinary people come to know or believe what they do? We need an account of this process to help explain why people act as they do. You might think I am acting irrationally--against my interest or my purpose--until you realize that what you know and what I know differ significantly. My actions, given my knowledge, might make eminently good... more...

  • The Nonsense of Kant and Lewis Carrollby Ben-Ami Scharfstein

    University of Chicago Press 2014; US$ 45.00

    What if Immanuel Kant floated down from his transcendental heights, straight through Alice?s rabbit hole, and into the fabulous world of Lewis Carroll? For Ben-Ami Scharfstein this is a wonderfully instructive scenario and the perfect way to begin this wide-ranging collection of decades of startlingly synthesized thought. Combining a deep knowledge... more...

  • Conceptualizing Metaphorsby Ivan Mladenov

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 195.00

    The enigmatic thought of Charles S. Peirce (1839-1914), considered by many to be one of the great philosophers of all time, involves inquiry not only into virtually all branches and sources of modern semiotics, physics, cognitive sciences, and mathematics, but also logic, which he understood to be the only useful approach to the riddle of reality.... more...

  • Ibn ?Arabî - Time and Cosmologyby Mohamed Haj Yousef

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 49.95

    This book is the first comprehensive attempt to explain Ibn ?Arabî?s distinctive view of time and its role in the process of creating the cosmos and its relation with the Creator. By comparing this original view with modern theories of physics and cosmology, Mohamed Haj Yousef constructs a new cosmological model that may deepen and extend our understanding... more...

  • Phenomenology and the Transcendentalby Sara Heinämaa; Mirja Hartimo; Timo Miettinen

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 135.00

    The aim of this volume is to offer an updated account of the transcendental character of phenomenology. The main question concerns the sense and relevance of transcendental philosophy today: What can such philosophy contribute to contemporary inquiries and debates after the many reasoned attacks against its idealistic, aprioristic, absolutist and... more...

  • Stanley Cavell, Religion, and Continental Philosophyby Espen Dahl

    Indiana University Press 2014; US$ 38.99

    The American philosopher Stanley Cavell (b. 1926) is a secular Jew who by his own admission is obsessed with Christ, yet his outlook on religion in general is ambiguous. Probing the secular and the sacred in Cavell?s thought, Espen Dahl explains that Cavell, while often parting ways with Christianity, cannot dismiss it either. Focusing on Cavell's... more...

  • Beatific Enjoyment in Medieval Scholastic Debatesby Severin Valentinov Kitanov

    Lexington Books 2014; US$ 99.99

    Beatific Enjoyment in Medieval Scholastic Debates traces the reception of Saint Augustine?s concept of beatific enjoyment ( fruitio beatifica ) in Peter Lombard?s Sentences. It identifies the main themes and problems which shaped the discussion of the concept in thirteenth- and fourteenth-century scholastic commentaries. Bringing together... more...

  • The Analytic Tradition in Philosophy, Volume 1by Scott Soames

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 55.00

    This is the first of five volumes of a definitive history of analytic philosophy from the invention of modern logic in 1879 to the end of the twentieth century. Scott Soames, a leading philosopher of language and historian of analytic philosophy, provides the fullest and most detailed account of the analytic tradition yet published, one that is unmatched... more...

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 45.00

    In this collection of recent and unpublished essays, leading analytic philosopher Scott Soames traces milestones in his field from its beginnings in Britain and Germany in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century, through its subsequent growth in the United States, up to its present as the world?s most vigorous philosophical tradition.

  • The Routledge Companion to Eighteenth Century Philosophyby Aaron Garrett

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 225.00

    The Eighteenth century is one of the most important periods in the history of Western philosophy, witnessing philosophical, scientific, and social and political change on a vast scale. In spite of this, there are few single volume overviews of the philosophy of the period as a whole. The Routledge Companion to Eighteenth Century Philosophy is... more...
