  • Logiqueby Encyclopaedia Universalis

    Primento Digital Publishing 2016; US$ 4.99

    Ce n'est qu'à une époque relativement récente qu'on a vraiment commencé à s'intéresser à l'histoire de la logique. Jusqu'au milieu du XIXe siècle régnait en effet l'idée que la logique n'avait pas d'histoire, étant, pour l'essentiel, sortie « close et achevée » de l'esprit d' Aristote. Le renouveau de la logique depuis 1850 environ a peu à peu permis... more...

  • Epistemic Frictionby Gila Sher

    OUP Oxford 2016; US$ 49.99 US$ 42.99

    Gila Sher offers an original view of knowledge from the perspective of our basic human epistemic situation, as limited yet resourceful beings, trying to understand the world in all its complexity. She develops an integrated theory of knowledge, truth, and logic, centred on the idea of epistemic friction: knowledge must be constrained by the world. more...

    OUP Oxford 2016; US$ 72.99 US$ 62.77

    How far should our realism extend, and how should we understand the entities referred to by mathematical and ethical talk?

A team of experts breaks new ground in both areas and illuminates new questions, arguments, and problems. more...

  • From Mathematics to Philosophy (Routledge Revivals)by Hao Wang

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 46.50

    First published in 1974. Despite the tendency of contemporary analytic philosophy to put logic and mathematics at a central position, the author argues it failed to appreciate or account for their rich content. Through discussions of such mathematical concepts as number, the continuum, set, proof and mechanical procedure, the author provides an introduction... more...
