  • "Rasse" und "Züchtung" bei Nietzscheby Gerd Schank

    De Gruyter 2000; US$ 182.00

    In this text, the author takes issue with the contention that Nietzsche was a precursor of Nazi ideology: Nietzsche sees race and breeding rather as a cultivation, meaning the development of European peoples and people to supranational Europeans. more...

    Wisdom Publications 2012; US$ 18.95

    The Abhidhamma, the third great division of early Buddhist teaching, expounds a revolutionary system of philosophical psychology rooted in the twin Buddhist insights of selflessness and dependent origination.

  • Action and Responsibilityby Andrew Sneddon

    Springer 2006; US$ 179.00

    What makes an event count as an action? Typical answers appeal to the way in which the event was produced: e.g., perhaps an arm movement is an action when caused by mental states (in particular ways), but not when caused in other ways. Andrew Sneddon argues that this type of answer, which he calls "productionism", is methodologically and... more...

  • Aesthetics after Metaphysics: From Mimesis to Metaphorby Miguel Beistegui

    Taylor and Francis 2012; US$ 130.00

    This book focuses on a dimension of art which the philosophical tradition (from Plato to Hegel and even Adorno) has consistently overlooked, such was its commitment ? explicit or implicit ? to mimesis and the metaphysics of truth it presupposes. De Beistegui refers to this dimension, which unfolds outside the space that stretches between the sensible... more...

    Langaa RPCIG 2011; US$ 22.95

    The debate on the existence of African philosophy has taken central stage in academic circles, and academics and researchers have tussled with various aspects of this subject.
