  • Phenomenal Intentionalityby Uriah Kriegel

    Oxford University Press 2013; US$ 72.99 US$ 62.77

    Phenomenal intentionality is supposed to be a kind of directedness of the mind onto the world that is grounded in the conscious feel of mental life. This book of new essays explores a number of issues raised by the notion of phenomenal intentionality. more...

  • Naturalism and the First-Person Perspectiveby Lynne Rudder Baker

    Oxford University Press 2013; US$ 25.99 US$ 22.35

    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...

  • Reality Makingby Mark Jago

    OUP Oxford 2016; US$ 64.99 US$ 55.89

    What kinds of entity are fundamental to reality, and how do dependent entities depend on the fundamental ones? How does one entity metaphysically ground another? A new generation of metaphysicians address these and related questions, which are central to contemporary metaphysics. more...

  • Reference and Existenceby Saul A. Kripke

    Oxford University Press 2013; US$ 34.99 US$ 30.09

    This work can be read as a sequel to Kripke's classic Naming and Necessity , confronting important issues left open in that work and developing a novel approach to questions concerning empty names and existence. It provides along the way novel treatments of fictional and mythological discourse, the pragmatics of definite and indefinite descriptions... more...

  • Ontology Made Easyby Amie L. Thomasson

    Oxford University Press 2014; US$ 52.99 US$ 45.57

    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...

  • Descartes on Causationby Tad M. Schmaltz

    Oxford University Press 2007; US$ 30.99 US$ 26.65

    This book is a systematic study of Descartes' theory of causation and its relation to the medieval and early modern scholastic philosophy that provides its proper historical context. The argument presented here is that even though Descartes offered a dualistic ontology that differs radically from what we find in scholasticism, his views on causation... more...

  • Seeing Dark Thingsby Roy Sorensen

    Oxford University Press 2008; US$ 27.99 US$ 24.07

    Roy Sorensen here defends the causal theory of perception by treating absences as causes. He draws heavily on common sense and psychology to vindicate the assumption that we directly perceive absences. 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$ 129.00

    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...
