  • Psychological Metaphysicsby Peter A. White

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 54.95

    The research literature on causal attribution and social cognition generally consists of many fascinating but fragmented and superficial phenomena. These can only be understood as an organised whole by elucidating the fundamental psychological assumptions on which they depend. Originally published in 1993, Psychological Metaphysics is an exploration... more...

  • Parts of a Wholeby Lucas Champollion

    OUP Oxford 2017; US$ 54.99

    This book uses mathematical models of language to explain why there are certain gaps in language: things that we might expect to be able to say but can't. Lucas Champollion offers a theory that unifies the concepts of aspect, plural and mass reference, measurement, and distributivity, to account for these gaps. more...

  • Objects and Modalitiesby Tero Tulenheimo

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 94.37

    This book develops a novel generalization of possible world semantics, called ?world line semantics?, which recognizes worlds and links between world-bound objects (world lines) as mutually independent aspects of modal semantics.

  • The Rule-Following Paradox and its Implications for Metaphysicsby Jody Azzouni

    Springer International Publishing 2017; US$ 86.78

    This monograph presents Azzouni?s new approach to the rule-following paradox. His solution leaves intact an isolated individual?s capacity to follow rules, and it simultaneously avoids replacing the truth conditions for meaning-talk with mere assertability conditions for that talk.  Kripke?s influential version of Wittgenstein?s rule-following... more...

  • The Problem of Existenceby Arthur Witherall

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 54.95

    This book explores the question of why there is something instead of nothing. Several responses to this question are possible, but only some of them address the question seriously, respecting its emotional aspects as well as its cognitive dimension. The author carefully distinguishes those answers that are truly satisfactory, in both respects, from... more...

  • Universals, Concepts and Qualitiesby P.F. Strawson; Arindam Chakrabarti

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 130.00

    Are there universal properties grounding our sense of resemblance or qualitative identity among a number of distinct things or events which appear to form a class, a type or a kind of some other sort? Do universals such as humanness, triangularity, or being an oak exist? Is being a laptop computer a universal which has only recently come into existence?... more...
