  • Possibility and Actualityby Nicolai Hartmann; Roberto Poli; Stephanie Adair; Alex Scott

    De Gruyter 2013; US$ 131.86

    Nicolai Hartmann?s Possibility and Actuality is a landmark work of modal analysis that describes the logical relations between possibility, actuality, and necessity. It deals with such questions as: How do we know that something is really possible? Is the possible only the actual? Is the actual only the possible? What is the difference... more...

  • Metaphysics: A Very Short Introductionby Stephen Mumford

    OUP Oxford 2012; US$ 7.99 US$ 6.87

    In this easy-to-understand introduction, Stephen Mumford explores one of the four main branches of philosophy: metaphysics. Using practical examples to explore the main issues, he presents the ideas in a clear and simple way, helping to clarify and unravel the basic questions of this complex and abstract concept. more...

  • An Ontology of Consciousnessby R. Ellis

    Springer Netherlands 2013; US$ 153.89

    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...

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

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 84.63

    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$ 84.63

    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...

  • Modes of Irrationalityby H.M. Garelick

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 73.64

    My purpose in this study is to explore various forms of irrationality and to name some true irrationals in order to find the bounds of reason. The irrational-if there is such -sets a priori limits to philosophical investigation, for reason must stop before unreason's province. I begin by defining a primary meaning of rational. Forming, then, by opposition,... more...

  • Phenomenology and Ontologyby J.N. Mohanty

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 84.63

    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...

  • Plato and the Individualby Robert William Hall

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 84.63

    In this study of Plato's theory of the individual, I propose to show that Plato is deeply concerned with the achievement by each person of the moral excellence appropriate to man. Plato exhibits profound interest in the moral well being of each individual, not merely those who are philosophically gifted. Obviously my study is in opposition with a traditional... more...

  • The Rational and the Realby L. Armour

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 76.94

    A book with so Hegelian a title should, I suppose, be more Hegelian than this one. I share with Hegel the conviction that the rational is the real and the real is the rational. I have learned something from Hegel and borrowed here and there. But the reader should not jump to conclusions. I rather fear that anti-Hegelians will not get past the title... more...

  • Hume Precursor of Modern Empiricismby Farhang Zabeeh

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 84.63

    David Hume is the most influential precursor of modern empiri­ cism. By modern empiricism, I intend a belief that all cognitive conflicts can be resolved, in principle, by either appeal to matters offact, via scientific procedure, or by appeal to some sets of natural or conventional standards, whether linguistic, mathematical, aes­ thetic or political.... more...
