  • The Event Universeby Leemon B. McHenry

    Edinburgh University Press Ltd 2015; Not Available

    Leemon McHenry argues that Whitehead's metaphysics provides a better basis for achieving a unification of physical theory than a traditional substance metaphysics. He investigates the influence of Maxwell's electromagnetic field, Einstein's theory of relativity and quantum mechanics on the development of the ontology of events and compares... more...

  • Onto-Cartographyby Levi R. Bryant

    Edinburgh University Press Ltd 2014; Not Available

    Onto-Cartography gives an unapologetic defense of naturalism and materialism, transforming these familiar positions and showing how culture itself is formed by nature. Bryant endorses a pan-ecological theory of being, arguing that societies are ecosystems that can only be understood by considering nonhuman material agencies such as rivers and mountain... more...

  • Form and Objectby Tristan Garcia; Mark Allan Ohm; Jon Cogburn

    Edinburgh University Press Ltd 2014; Not Available

    What is a thing? What is an object? Tristan Garcia decisively overturns 100 years of Heideggerian orthodoxy about the supposedly derivative nature of objects and in so doing gives deep insights into the world and our place in it. Garcia's original and systematic formal ontology of things strips them of any determination, intensity or depth. From... more...

  • Gilles Deleuze's Philosophy of Timeby James Williams

    Edinburgh University Press Ltd 2011; Not Available

    Throughout his career, Deleuze developed a series of original philosophies of time and applied them successfully to many different fields. Now James Williams presents Deleuze's philosophy of time as the central concept that connects his philosophy as a whole. Through this conceptual approach, the book covers all the main periods of Deleuze's... more...

  • Fields of Senseby Markus Gabriel

    Edinburgh University Press Ltd 2015; Not Available

    It is still a widespread assumption that metaphysics and ontology deal with roughly the same questions. They are supposed to be concerned with the fundamental nature of reality and to give an account of the meaning of ‘existence’ or ‘being’ in line with the broadest possible metaphysical assumptions. Against this, Markus Gabriel... more...

  • Existence, Fiction, Assumptionby Mauro Antonelli; Marian David

    De Gruyter 2016; US$ 112.00

    This volume of Meinong Studies contains papers on the connections between intentionality and nonexistent objects, presenting historical analyses on the background of Meinong?s philosophical position up to the Meinong-Russell-Debate. It also contains systematic studies of fictional characters, of Kripke?s alternative theory of fiction,... more...

  • Fundamentals of Ontological Commitmentby Paolo Valore

    De Gruyter 2016; US$ 112.00

    This book presents the standard ontological commitment approach, together with a defense of the thesis of ontological relativity. It provides, at the same time, a wide-ranging overview of the ground conceptual tools of ontology. Their possible applications are outlined through a broad array of examples and open problems, and essential... more...

  • Normativity and Naturalism in the Philosophy of the Social Sciencesby Mark Risjord

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    Normativity and Naturalism in the Social Sciences engages with a central debate within the philosophy of social science: whether social scientific explanation necessitates an appeal to norms, and if so, whether appeals to normativity can be rendered "scientific." This collection brings together contributions from a diverse group of philosophers... more...

  • Philosophy for Graduate Studentsby Alex Broadbent

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 39.95

    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. There are a number of topics that any contemporary philosopher working in any part of the analytic tradition (and in many parts of other traditions too) needs to grasp, and... more...

  • Subjectivityby R. J. Snell; Steven F. McGuire; Steven F. McGuire; Lee Trepanier; Elizabeth A. Murray; Matthew B. O'Brien; Sherif Girgis; Mark Shiffman; Christopher O. Tollefsen; Amy Gilbert Richards; Ralph C. Hancock; Richard Velkley; David Walsh; Phillip Cary; V. Bradley Lewis; Daniel Mark; James Greenaway; Jeremy D. Wilkins

    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...
