  • Consciousness and Fundamental Realityby Philip Goff

    Oxford University Press 2017; US$ 72.99

    The first half of this book argues that physicalism cannot account for consciousness, and hence cannot be true. The second half explores and defends Russellian monism, a radical alternative to both physicalism and dualism. The view that emerges combines panpsychism with the view that the universe as a whole is fundamental. more...

  • The Philosophy of Geo-Ontologiesby Timothy Tambassi

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 50.19

    This book is intended as a philosophical introduction to geo-ontologies, in response to their increasing diffusion within the contemporary debate, where philosophy plays a fundamental, though still unexplored, role. Accordingly, the first part offers a short overview of the ontological background of geo-ontologies, which comprehends computer science,... more...

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 54.95

    Thought experiments are a means of imaginative reasoning that lie at the heart of philosophy, from the pre-Socratics to the modern era, and they also play central roles in a range of fields, from physics to politics. The Routledge Companion to Thought Experiments is an invaluable guide and reference source to this multifaceted subject. Comprising... more...

  • Ontology Without Bordersby Jody Azzouni

    Oxford University Press 2017; US$ 65.00

    Our experience of objects is very rich. We perceive objects as possessing individuation conditions. This, however, is a projection of our senses and thinking. Azzouni shows the resulting austere metaphysics tames many ancient philosophical problems about constitution ("Ship of Theseus," "Sorities"), as well as contemporary puzzles about reductionism. more...

  • From Tarde to Deleuze and Foucaultby Sergio Tonkonoff

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 93.39

    This book posits that a singular paradigm in social theory can be discovered by reconstructing the conceptual grammar of Gabriel Tarde’s micro-sociology and by understanding the ways in which Gilles Deleuze’s micro-politics and Michel Foucault’s micro-physics have engaged with it. This is articulated in the infinite social multiplicity-invention-imitation-opposition-open... more...

  • The Paradoxical Structure of Existenceby Frederick D. Wilhelmsen

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 44.95

    For metaphysicians who have imbibed the sober and inebriating teachings of Thomas Aquinas, existence is an act, the act which makes all things actually to be. As the act of existence makes things to be, essence makes them to be what they are. Essence and the act of existence, in other words, are really distinct yet together they compose each of the... more...

  • The Brentano Puzzleby Roberto Poli

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 149.95

    Even if the width and the depth of Brentano’s intellectual legacy are now quite well known, those asked to list the principal philosophers of the 19th century, very rarely do mention his name. We may call this puzzle the problem of Brentano’s 'invisibility'. One component of the Brentano’s puzzle is that a number of Brentano’s outstanding pupils... more...
