  • Conservative Reductionismby Michael Esfeld; Christian Sachse

    Taylor and Francis 2011; US$ 150.00

    Conservative Reductionism sets out a new theory of the relationship between physics and the special sciences within the framework of functionalism. It argues that it is wrong-headed to conceive an opposition between functional and physical properties (or functional and physical descriptions, respectively) and to build an anti-reductionist argument... more...

  • Experience and the World's Own Languageby Richard Gaskin

    Clarendon Press 2006; US$ 84.99

    John McDowell's 'minimal empiricism' is one of the most influential and widely discussed doctrines in contemporary philosophy. Richard Gaskin subjects it to careful examination and criticism. The doctrine is undermined, he argues, by inadequacies in the way McDowell conceives what he styles the 'order of justification' connecting... more...

  • Nature's Metaphysicsby Alexander Bird

    Clarendon Press 2007; US$ 33.99

    Nature's Metaphysics argues that a satisfactory philosophy of science requires a metaphysics that is based on the understanding that natural properties are essentially dispositional. Alexander Bird develops a dispositional essentialist account of the laws of nature, defending the claim that laws are metaphysically necessary. Professional philosophers... more...

  • Ontological Categoriesby Jan Westerhoff

    Clarendon Press 2005; US$ 84.99

    The concept of an ontological category is central to metaphysics. Metaphysicians argue about which category an object should be assigned to, whether one category can be reduced to another one, or whether there might be different equally adequate systems of categorization. Answers to these questions presuppose a clear understanding of what precisely... more...

  • The Law-Governed Universeby John T. Roberts

    Oxford University Press 2008; US$ 39.99

    John T. Roberts presents and defends a radically new theory of laws of nature, the Measurability Account. Though consistent with a Humean ontology, Roberts's theory differs sharply from the most influential Humean theory of laws, David Lewis's Best-System Analysis. Unlike other Humean theories, the Measurability Account affirms that there is... more...

  • Beyond The Tractatus Warsby Rupert Read; Matthew A. Lavery

    Taylor and Francis 2012; US$ 49.95

  • Works of Musicby Julian Dodd

    Clarendon Press 2007; US$ 84.99

    In this original and iconoclastic book, Julian Dodd argues for what he terms the simple view of the ontological nature of works of pure, instrumental music. This account is the conjunction of two theses: the type/token theory and sonicism. The type/token theory addresses the question of which ontological category musical works fall under, and its answer... more...
