  • Self-Deception's Puzzles and Processesby Jason Kido Lopez

    Lexington Books 2016; US$ 79.99

    In this book, Jason Kido Lopez argues that self-deception is a matter of intentionally using the strategies and methods of interpersonal deception on oneself. This conception demonstrates interesting connections between Sartre?s notion of bad faith, interpersonal deception and lying, pretense, wishful thinking, akrasia, and unintentional biases.... more...

  • Metaphysics of Scienceby Markus Schrenk

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 49.95

    Metaphysics and science have a long but troubled relationship. In the twentieth century the Logical Positivists argued metaphysics was irrelevant and that philosophy should be guided by science. However, metaphysics and science attempt to answer many of the same, fundamental questions: What are laws of nature? What is causation? What are natural kinds?... more...

  • Die Existenz des Spekulativenby Martin Loder

    De Gruyter 2016; US$ 120.86

    Die außerordentliche Bedeutung des Neuplatonismus für Hegels Denken steht heute außer Frage. Was jedoch trotz auffälliger Gemeinsamkeiten bisher unterblieb, ist eine Deutung von Hegels Philosophie des subjektiven Geistes, die die Seelenlehre von Plotin und Proklos voraussetzt. Dieses Buch schließt diese Lücke in der Hegelforschung unter Berücksichtigung... more...

  • Free Will, Causality and the Selfby Atle Ottesen Søvik

    De Gruyter 2016; US$ 87.89

    Søvik argues that since there is some indeterminism in the world, agents can be fundamental sources of their actions and thus freer than what compatibilists think without having to appeal to mysterious causation. The theory presupposes a plausible understanding of causation and the self, and shows that in an indetermined world it will sometimes be... more...

  • Emerson's Metaphysicsby Joseph Urbas

    Lexington Books 2016; US$ 94.99

    This book gives the first complete, fully historicized account of Emerson's metaphysics of cause and effect and its foundational position in his philosophy as a whole. Joseph Urbas proposes an intellectual biography of Emerson the metaphysician but also the life-story of a concept synonymous, in the Transcendentalist period, with life itself?the... more...

  • Ontologie der Grenzen ausgedehnter Gegenständeby Lukas Benedikt Kraus

    De Gruyter 2016; US$ 120.86

    Is a lake?s surface made of water or air? When two extended objects are in contact, do their boundaries coincide? Is a new boundary created when an extended object is split? These and many other problems in the ontology of boundaries are grounded in the common assumption that boundaries are the outermost parts of extended objects. The author argues... more...

  • Animalismby Stephan Blatti; Paul F. Snowdon

    OUP Oxford 2016; US$ 84.99 US$ 73.09

    What are we? What is the nature of the human person? Animalism has a straightforward answer to these long-standing philosophical questions: we are animals. Fifteen philosophers offer new essays exploring this increasingly popular view, some defending animalism, others criticizing it, and others exploring its more philosophical implications. more...

  • Peirce's Empiricismby Aaron Bruce Wilson

    Lexington Books 2016; US$ 109.99

    This book defends an interpretation of Peirce?s philosophical work as forming a systematic whole, emphasizing his empiricist epistemology and explaining the roots of his thought in earlier empiricist and common sense philosophers. In particular, the book develops the connections between Peirce, Reid, and the British empiricists, and provides focused... more...

  • Leibniz? Metaphysik der Modalitätby Sebastian Bender

    De Gruyter 2016; US$ 120.86

    Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz? Theorie der Modalität nimmt innerhalb der frühneuzeitlichen Philosophie eine ganz besondere Stellung ein. Leibniz analysiert die Begriffe der Möglichkeit und Notwendigkeit so intensiv wie kein anderer Philosoph seiner Zeit. Sebastian Bender rekonstruiert die metaphysischen Grundlagen dieser Modalitätskonzeption und zeigt... more...
