  • Modes of Irrationalityby H.M. Garelick

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 74.98

    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...

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

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 86.18

    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$ 86.18

    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...

  • Berkeley’s Renovation of Philosophyby Gavin Ardley

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 86.18

    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...

  • Plato and the Individualby Robert William Hall

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 86.18

    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$ 78.34

    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$ 86.18

    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...

  • 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$ 56.00

    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$ 35.00

    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...
