  • Hegelian Metaphysicsby Robert Stern

    Oxford University Press 2009; US$ 44.99

    The great German idealist philosopher G. W. F. Hegel has exerted an immense influence on the development of philosophy from the early 19th century to the present. But the metaphysical aspects of his thought are still under-appreciated. In a series of essays Robert Stern traces the development of a distinctively Hegelian approach to metaphysics and... more...

  • Realityby Jan Westerhoff

    Oxford University Press 2011; US$ 9.99

    What is real?' has been one of the key questions of philosophy since its beginning in antiquity. It is a question that, due to such films as The Matrix, has also made its way into popular culture. But it is not just a question philosophers ask. It is also asked by scientists when they investigate whether the fundamental constituents of matter are... more...

  • The Mind in Natureby C. B. Martin

    Oxford University Press 2010; US$ 34.99

    What are the most fundamental features of the world? Do minds stand outside the natural order? Is a unified picture of mental and physical reality possible? The Mind in Nature provides a staunchly realist account of the world as a unified system incorporating both the mental and the physical. C. B. Martin, an original and influential exponent of 'ontologically... more...

    Nicolai Hartmann?s Possibility and Actuality is a landmark work of modal analysis that describes the logical relations between possibility, actuality, and necessity.

    Metaphysics is one of the traditional four main branches of philosophy, alongside ethics, logic and epistemology. It is also an area that continues to attract and hold a fascination for many people yet it is associated with being complex and abstract. For some it is associated with the mystical or religious. For others it is known through the metaphysical... more...

    Rowman & Littlefield Publishers 1998; US$ 49.99

    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...

    Rowman & Littlefield Publishers 1996; US$ 30.99

  • 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.

Untersucht werden Konzeptionen von der Antike... more...

  • Causationby Stephen Mumford; Rani Lill Anjum

    Oxford University Press 2013; US$ 9.99

    Causation is the most fundamental connection in the universe. Without it, there would be no science or technology. There would be no moral responsibility either, as none of our thoughts would be connected with our actions and none of our actions with any consequences. Nor would we have a system of law because blame resides only in someone having caused... more...
