  • Ontological Categoriesby Jan Westerhoff

    Clarendon Press 2005; US$ 84.99

    The concept of an ontological category is central to metaphysics. Metaphysicians argue about which category an object should be assigned to, whether one category can be reduced to another one, or whether there might be different equally adequate systems of categorization. Answers to these questions presuppose a clear understanding of what precisely... more...

  • Beyond The Tractatus Warsby Rupert Read; Matthew A. Lavery

    Taylor and Francis 2012; US$ 43.95

    Over fifteen years have passed since Cora Diamond and James Conant turned Wittgenstein scholarship upside down with the program of ?resolute? reading, and ten years since this reading was crystallized in the major collection The New Wittgenstein . This approach remains at the center of the debate about Wittgenstein and his philosophy, and this book... more...

  • The Law-Governed Universeby John T. Roberts

    Oxford University Press 2008; US$ 39.99

    John T. Roberts presents and defends a radically new theory of laws of nature, the Measurability Account. Though consistent with a Humean ontology, Roberts's theory differs sharply from the most influential Humean theory of laws, David Lewis's Best-System Analysis. Unlike other Humean theories, the Measurability Account affirms that there is... more...

  • Works of Musicby Julian Dodd

    Clarendon Press 2007; US$ 84.99

    In this original and iconoclastic book, Julian Dodd argues for what he terms the simple view of the ontological nature of works of pure, instrumental music. This account is the conjunction of two theses: the type/token theory and sonicism. The type/token theory addresses the question of which ontological category musical works fall under, and its answer... more...

  • Truth and Ontologyby Trenton Merricks

    Clarendon Press 2007; US$ 33.99

    That there are no white ravens is true because there are no white ravens. And so there is a sense in which that truth 'depends on the world'. But this sort of dependence is trivial. After all, it does not imply that there is anything that is that truth's 'truthmaker'. Nor does it imply that something exists to which that truth corresponds.... more...

  • World Without Designby Michael C. Rea

    Clarendon Press 2002; US$ 54.99

    Philosophical naturalism, according to which philosophy is continuous with the natural sciences, has dominated the Western academy for well over a century; but Michael Rea claims that it is without rational foundation, and that the costs of embracing it are surprisingly high. The first part of World Without Design aims to provide a fair and historically... more...

  • Ways a World Might Beby Robert C. Stalnaker

    Clarendon Press 2003; US$ 53.99

    Robert Stalnaker draws together in this volume his seminal work in metaphysics. The central theme is the role of possible worlds in articulating our various metaphysical commitments. The book begins with reflections on the general idea of a possible world, and then uses the framework of possible worlds to formulate and clarify some questions about... more...

  • Spinoza's Geometry of Powerby Valtteri Viljanen

    Cambridge University Press 2011; US$ 78.00

    A compelling view of existence as a realization of power, possessing an internal structure akin to that of geometrical objects. more...
