    De Gruyter 2016; US$ 78.57

    Personen verstehen sich als Individuen, schreiben sich Charaktereigenschaften zu, führen sich Episoden ihres Lebens vor Augen und denken über sich selbst nach. Das Buch bietet eine philosophische Analyse dieser komplexen Fähigkeiten und arbeitet ihre Voraussetzungen heraus. Dazu werden erstmals analytische, phänomenologische und empirische... more...

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

    De Gruyter 2013; US$ 134.73

    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.

  • An Ontology of Consciousnessby R. Ellis

    Springer Netherlands 2013; US$ 219.00

    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$ 99.00

    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$ 99.00

    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...

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

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 179.00

    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...

  • Modes of Irrationalityby H.M. Garelick

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 89.99

    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$ 99.00

    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...

  • Berkeley?s Renovation of Philosophyby Gavin Ardley

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 99.00

    In this work I have endeavoured to see Berkeley in his contemporary setting. On the principle that philosophy is ultimately about men, not about abstract problems, I have tried to see Berkeley the philosopher as an expression of Berkeley the man. When this is done, what is perennial in the philosophy may be discerned in and through what is local and... more...
