  • Monadischer Raumby Johannes Hattler

    De Gruyter 2004; US$ 133.00

    Leibniz hat die erste umfassende Theorie eines relationalen Raumes entwickelt und sie in verschiedenen Wissenschaften ausgearbeitet.

  • The Metaphysics and the Epistemology of Meaningby Jonas Pfister

    De Gruyter 2007; US$ 70.00

    The book develops the metaphysics of meaning along the lines set up by Paul Grice, defining the three central notions of what is meant, said and implicated. The Gricean notion of what is said is threatened by semantic underdetermination: If the sentence underdetermines the thought it is used to express, what is said cannot be the proposition... more...

  • God’s Rational Warriorsby Marion Ledwig

    De Gruyter 2008; US$ 133.00

    This book stands in the tradition of philosophers who advance the rationality of faith. Yet this book goes beyond their accounts, for it not only defends the view that faith can be termed rational, but it also considers the different senses in which faith can be termed rational. While this book advances the idea that faith as a general... more...

  • Nietzsche’s Ontologyby Laird Addis

    De Gruyter 2012; US$ 56.00

    Although there is a huge literature on Nietzsche’s philosophy, this is the first study in English that focuses on his ontology. Before proceeding to that ontology, Addis argues that, contrary to many commentators, Nietzsche defends both the possibility and the desirability of objectivity in the search for knowledge, including knowledge... more...

  • Subjektivität und Autonomieby Stefan Lang; Lars-Thade Ulrichs

    De Gruyter 2013; US$ 182.00

    Die klassische deutsche Philosophie zählt zu den bedeutendsten und wirkmächtigsten Diskursformationen. Die Beiträge bieten eine grundlegende Orientierung sowie systematische Analysen zu Schlüsselbegriffen und Grundproblemen der praktischen Philosophie dieser Epoche. Neben den Klassikern wie Kant, Fichte und Hegel werden auch Beziehungen... more...

  • An Ontology of Consciousnessby R. Ellis

    Springer Netherlands 2013; US$ 163.31

    The object of this study is to find a coherent theoretical approach to three problems which appear to interrelate in complex ways: (1) What is the ontological status of consciousness? (2) How can there be 'un­ conscious,' 'prereflective' or 'self-alienated' consciousness? And (3) Is there a 'self' or 'ego' formed by means of the interrelation of more... more...

  • Transcendental Arguments and Scienceby P. Bieri; Lorenz Krüger; R.-P. Horstmann

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 151.64

    The goal of the present volume is to discuss the notion of a 'conceptual framework' or 'conceptual scheme', which has been dominating much work in the analysis and justification of knowledge in recent years. More specifi­ cally, this volume is designed to clarify the contrast between two competing approaches in the area of problems indicated by this... more...

  • Imagination and Reason in Plato, Aristotle, Vico, Rousseau and Keatsby J.J. Chambliss

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 89.82

    The present essay grew out of an inte:rest in exploring the relationship be­ tween "imagination" and "reason" in the history of naturalistic thinking. The essay tries to show something of the spirit of naturalism coming to terms with the place of imagination and reason in knowing, making, and doing as activities of human experience. This spirit is... more...

  • Metaphysicsby T. Ando

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 89.82

    In the summer of 1960 I visited Oxford and stayed there several months. This book was written as some slight memorial of my days in that ancient seat of learning. It is my pleasant duty to acknowledge the great debt I own to Mr. D. Lyness in the task of putting it into English. In addition I remember with gratitude Dr. J. L. Ackrill of Brasenose College,... more...

  • Phenomenology and Ontologyby J.N. Mohanty

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 89.82

    Most of the essays that follow have originally appeared in philosophical journals, Indian and Western. They are reprinted here with the hope that in spite of the wide variety of topics with which they deal there is nevertheless a certain unity of treatment. A few major ideas and distinctions run through all the essays: I need not further single them... more...
