Metaphysics

Most popular at the top

  • Dispositions and Causal Powersby Bruno Gnassounou; Max Kistler

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    Dispositions are everywhere. We say that a wall is hard, that water quenches thirst and is transparent, that dogs can swim and oak trees can let their leaves fall, and that acid has the power to corrode metals. All these statements express attributions of dispositions, be they physical, physiological or psychological, yet there is much philosophical... more...

  • The Situated Selfby J.T. Ismael

    Oxford University Press 2007; US$ 32.99 US$ 28.37

    J.T. Ismael's monograph is an ambitious contribution to metaphysics and the philosophy of language and mind. She tackles a philosophical question whose origin goes back to Descartes: What am I? The self is not a mere thing among things--but if so, what is it, and what is its relationship to the world? Ismael is an original and creative thinker who... more...

  • A Metaphysics for the Mobby John Russell Roberts

    Oxford University Press 2007; US$ 77.99 US$ 67.07

    Contrary to popular opinion, there is a clear connection between Berkeley's philosophy and common sense. This connection, however, runs through that most maligned aspect of Berkeley's work, his view of spirits. To understand the former we must understand the latter. To this end, Roberts focuses on laying bare the core aspects of Berkeley's positive... more...

  • Method in Metaphysicsby Andrew Beards

    University of Toronto Press, Scholarly Publishing Division 2008; US$ 82.00

    Andrew Beards shows how Lonergan's philosophy can help to clarify not only particular issues in current debates but also the larger question of a basic method. more...

  • The Metaphysics of Identityby André Gallois

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 49.95

    The philosophical problem of identity and the related problem of change go back to the ancient Greek philosophers and fascinated later figures including Leibniz, Locke, and Hume. Heraclitus argued that one could not swim in the same river twice because new waters were ever flowing in. When is a river not the same river? If one removes one plank at... more...

  • Principles of Human Knowledgeby George Berkeley

    Start Publishing LLC 2013; US$ 0.99

    Through reflection or introspection, is it possible to attempt to know if a sound, shape, movement, or color can exist unperceived by a mind? This book largely seeks to refute the claims made by Berkeley's contemporary John Locke about the nature of human perception. Both Locke and Berkeley agreed that there was an outside world, and it was this world... more...

  • How to Know Higher Worldsby Rudolf Steiner

    Start Publishing LLC 2013; US$ 1.99

    There slumber in every human being faculties by means of which she can acquire for herself a knowledge of higher worlds. Mystics, Gnostics, Theosophists - all speak of a world of soul and spirit which for them is just as real as the world we see with our physical eyes and touch with our physical hands. At every moment the listener may say to herself:... more...

  • The Critique of Pure Reasonby Immanuel Kant

    Start Publishing LLC 2012; US$ 1.99

    The Critique of Pure Reason is one of the most influential philosophy books of all times. Kant's influence on modern perception of reason cannot be over estimated. Here Kant redefines reason and gives us the tools to understand reason on two levels: the empirical and the metaphysical. more...

  • Making Objects and Eventsby Simon J. Evnine

    OUP Oxford 2016; US$ 72.99 US$ 62.77

    Simon J. Evnine explores the view that some objects have matter from which they are distinct but that this distinctness is not due to the existence of anything like a form. He argues that objects must be understood in relation to how they come to exist and what their functions are, and applies his account to artifacts, organisms, and actions. more...

  • Timaeusby Plato; Peter Kalkavage

    Hackett Publishing Company, Inc. 2016; US$ 11.25

    Both an ideal entrée for beginning readers and a solid text for scholars, the second edition of Peter Kalkavage's acclaimed translation of Plato's Timaeus brings enhanced accessibility to a rendering well known for its faithfulness to the original text. An extensive essay offers insights into the reading of the work, the nature of Platonic dialogue,... more...
