  • Modes of Irrationalityby H.M. Garelick

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 72.76

    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...

  • Plato and the Individualby Robert William Hall

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 83.62

    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$ 76.02

    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$ 83.62

    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...

  • Phenomenology and Ontologyby J.N. Mohanty

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 83.62

    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$ 83.62

    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...

  • Rethinking Intuitionby Michael R. DePaul; William Ramsey; George Bealer; Robert Cummings; Michael DePaul; Richard Foley; Alvin Goldman; Alison Gopnik; George Graham; Gary Gutting; Tery Horgan; Tamara Horowitz; Hilary Kornblith; Joel Pust; E Rosch; Eldar Shafir; Stephen Stitch; Ernest Sosa; Edward Wisniewkski

    Rowman & Littlefield Publishers 1998; US$ 57.99

    Ancients and moderns alike have constructed arguments and assessed theories on the basis of common sense and intuitive judgments. Yet, despite the important role intuitions play in philosophy, there has been little reflection on fundamental questions concerning the sort of data intuitions provide, how they are supposed to lead us to the truth, and... more...

  • Pragmatism and Realismby Frederick L. Will; Kenneth R. Westphal; Alasdair MacIntyre

    Rowman & Littlefield Publishers 1996; US$ 36.99

    In this collection of nine essays, Will demonstrates that a social account of human knowledge is consistent with, and ultimately requires, realism. more...

  • Intensität und Realitätby Thomas Leinkauf; Thomas Kisser

    De Gruyter 2015; US$ 154.00

    Seit Beginn der Philosophie steht neben dem Modell der substantiellen Differenz das Modell der quantitativen Differenz. Letztere unterscheidet sich im Rahmen einer einheitlichen Qualität durch die Intensität oder bestimmte Quantität und gewinnt im Zuge der Neuzeit und der Moderne eine zunehmende Bedeutung. Untersucht werden Konzeptionen von der Antike... more...

  • Causation: A Very Short Introductionby Stephen Mumford; Rani Lill Anjum

    OUP Oxford 2013; US$ 7.99

    Without cause and effect, there would be no science or technology, no moral responsibility, and no system of law. Causation is therefore the most fundamental connection in the universe and a core topic of philosophical thought. This Very Short Introduction introduces all of the main theories of causation and its key debates. more...
