    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    Lexington Books 2016; US$ 94.99

    Modern thought is sometimes presented as introducing a ?turn to the subject? absent from ancient and medieval thought, although the schools of thought associated with Bernard Lonergan, Eric Voegelin, Leo Strauss, and the new natural law theory often find subjectivity already operative in the older forms. In this volume, sixteen leading scholars examine... more...

  • Philosophy for Graduate Studentsby Alex Broadbent

    When graduate students start their studies, they usually have sound knowledge of some areas of philosophy, but the overall map of their knowledge is often patchy and disjointed.

Hoernlé argues for the latter and emphasises the importance of metaphysics in the intellectual... more...

In The Young Carnap's... more...

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    The topic of vagueness re-emerged in the twentieth century from relative obscurity. It deals with the phenomenon in natural language that manifests itself in apparent semantic indeterminacy - the indeterminacy, for example, that arises when asked to draw the line between the tall and non-tall, or the drunk and the sober. An associated paradox emphasises... more...
