  • Free Will, Causality and the Selfby Atle Ottesen Søvik

    De Gruyter 2016; US$ 84.94

    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...

  • Ontologie der Grenzen ausgedehnter Gegenständeby Lukas Benedikt Kraus

    De Gruyter 2016; US$ 116.82

    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...

    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.

    OUP Oxford 2016; US$ 84.99

    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$ 116.82

    Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz? Theorie der Modalität nimmt innerhalb der frühneuzeitlichen Philosophie eine ganz besondere Stellung ein.

Sebastian Bender rekonstruiert die metaphysischen Grundlagen dieser Modalitätskonzeption und zeigt... more...

  • Pragmatism and Embodied Cognitive Scienceby Roman Madzia; Matthias Jung

    De Gruyter 2016; US$ 116.82

    American pragmatism has been arguably the first intellectual current which systematically built its theories of knowledge, mind and valuation upon the concept of a bodily interaction between an organism and its environment. This book investigates the historical as well as systematic relations between the philosophy of pragmatism and the current theories... more...
