  • Naturalism and the First-Person Perspectiveby Lynne Rudder Baker

    Oxford University Press 2013; US$ 25.99

    This book investigates the limits of scientific naturalism. It has three goals: (1) to show that no wholly impersonal account of reality can be adequate to all phenomena; (2) to formulate a nonCartesian account of the first-person perspective; (3) to develop a "near-naturalism" that accommodates the world of our encounters and interactions. more...

  • Ontology Made Easyby Amie L. Thomasson

    Oxford University Press 2014; US$ 52.99

    Existence questions have been topics for heated debates in metaphysics, but this book argues that they can often be answered easily, by trivial inferences from uncontroversial premises. This 'easy' approach to ontology leads to realism about disputed entities, and to the view that metaphysical disputes about existence questions are misguided. more...

  • The Concept 'Horse' Paradox and Wittgensteinian Conceptual Investigationsby Kelly Dean Jolley

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    In The Foundations of Arithmetic, Gottlob Frege contended that the difference between concepts and objects was absolute. He meant that no object could be a concept and no concept an object. Benno Kerry disagreed; he contended that a concept could be an object, and that therefore the difference between concepts and objects was only relative. In this... more...

  • Meta-metaphysicsby Jiri Benovsky

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 92.34

    Metaphysical theories are beautiful. At the end of this book, Jiri Benovsky defends the view that metaphysical theories possess aesthetic properties and that these play a crucial role when it comes to theory evaluation and theory choice. Before we get there, the philosophical path the author proposes to follow starts with three discussions of metaphysical... more...

  • Dispositions and Causal Powersby Bruno Gnassounou; Max Kistler

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 149.95

    Dispositions are everywhere. We say that a wall is hard, that water quenches thirst and is transparent, that dogs can swim and oak trees can let their leaves fall, and that acid has the power to corrode metals. All these statements express attributions of dispositions, be they physical, physiological or psychological, yet there is much philosophical... more...

  • A Metaphysics for the Mobby John Russell Roberts

    Oxford University Press 2007; US$ 77.99

    Contrary to popular opinion, there is a clear connection between Berkeley's philosophy and common sense. This connection, however, runs through that most maligned aspect of Berkeley's work, his view of spirits. To understand the former we must understand the latter. To this end, Roberts focuses on laying bare the core aspects of Berkeley's positive... more...

  • Method in Metaphysicsby Andrew Beards

    University of Toronto Press, Scholarly Publishing Division 2008; Not Available

    Andrew Beards shows how Lonergan's philosophy can help to clarify not only particular issues in current debates but also the larger question of a basic method. more...

  • The Metaphysics of Identityby André Gallois

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 49.95

    The philosophical problem of identity and the related problem of change go back to the ancient Greek philosophers and fascinated later figures including Leibniz, Locke, and Hume. Heraclitus argued that one could not swim in the same river twice because new waters were ever flowing in. When is a river not the same river? If one removes one plank at... more...

  • Principles of Human Knowledgeby George Berkeley

    Start Publishing LLC 2013; US$ 0.99

    Through reflection or introspection, is it possible to attempt to know if a sound, shape, movement, or color can exist unperceived by a mind? This book largely seeks to refute the claims made by Berkeley's contemporary John Locke about the nature of human perception. Both Locke and Berkeley agreed that there was an outside world, and it was this world... more...

  • How to Know Higher Worldsby Rudolf Steiner

    Start Publishing LLC 2013; US$ 1.99

    There slumber in every human being faculties by means of which she can acquire for herself a knowledge of higher worlds. Mystics, Gnostics, Theosophists - all speak of a world of soul and spirit which for them is just as real as the world we see with our physical eyes and touch with our physical hands. At every moment the listener may say to herself:... more...
