    "All men by nature are actuated with the desire of knowledge," declared Aristotle.

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 84.95

    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...

This collection of essays assembles 21 philosophers, economists,... more...

    This book provides a new account of how Nietzsche's experimentalism informs his critical engagement with philosophical methodology.
