  • Philosophical Deliberationsby Nicholas Rescher

    De Gruyter 2013; US$ 97.00

    Philosophical Deliberations continues Rescher?s longstanding practice of publishing groups of philosophical essays.

  • Doubt, Ethics and Religionby Luigi Perissinotto; Vicente Sanfélix

    De Gruyter 2010; US$ 119.00

    This book explores Wittgenstein's conception of ethics, religion and philosophy. It aims at providing us with the tools necessary for assessing to what extent the Austrian philosopher can be considered an anti-Enlightenment thinker. The articles collected in this volume explore the relationship between Wittgenstein's thought and that of several authors... more...

  • La science et le monde moderne d'Alfred North Whitehead?by Michel Weber; François Beets; Michel Dupuis

    De Gruyter 2006; US$ 154.00

    The second international Chromatiques whiteheadiennes conference was devoted exclusively to the exegesis and contextualization of Whitehead's Science and the Modern World (1925). In order to elucidate the meaning and significance of this epoch-making work, the Proceedings are designed to form "companion" volume. With one paper devoted to each of its... more...

  • Gurwitsch's Relevancy for Cognitive Scienceby Lester Embree

    Springer 2007; US$ 159.00

    Findings about the central nervous system obtained with new technology, such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and positron emission tomography (PET), being too subtle to correlate with the crude results of many decades of behavioristic psychology, some psychologists were now turning to descriptions of subjective phenomena in William James, Edmund... more...

  • Words of Wisdomby Gareth Southwell

    Quercus 2013; US$ 16.95

    Words of Wisdom brings together 360 of philosophy?s most famous quotations, explaining their meaning and telling the stories behind them. Western philosophy may be said to have begun in ancient Greece, where, inscribed in his temple at Delphi, the words of the god Apollo commanded those who sought wisdom to first "know thyself". With the author?s... more...

  • Anthologie der realistischen Phänomenologieby Josef Seifert; Cheikh Mbacké Gueye

    De Gruyter 2009; US$ 293.00

    Der Ausdruck Phänomenologie ist heute höchst vieldeutig geworden. Husserl hat seit 1905 eine immer stärkere Wendung zum Idealismus kantischer Prägung hin vollzogen, durch die er den Boden der Phänomenologie, wie er sie begründet hatte, verlassen hat. Eine ähnliche Abweichung von der ursprünglichen Idee der Phänomenologie findet sich bei vielen anderen... more...

  • The Lesser Goodby Wendy C. Hamblet

    Lexington Books 2009; US$ 74.99

    The Lesser Good represents a timely meditation on the incapacity of mere laws and state politics to adequately address the ethical exigencies that arise in human life. Through the philosophies of Plato and post-Holocaust phenomenologist, Emmanual Levinas, Hamblet demonstrates that state models of justice strive for the lesser good of ordered continuity... more...

  • Pets, People, and Pragmatismby Erin McKenna

    Fordham University Press 2013; US$ 24.99

    Pets, People, and Pragmatism examines human relationships with pets without assuming that such relations are either benign or unnatural and to be avoided. The book addresses a lack of respect in pet-people relationships; for respectful relationships to be a real possibility, however, humans must make the effort to understand the beings with whom we... more...

  • Sport und Spiel bei den Germanenby Matthias Teichert

    De Gruyter 2013; US$ 182.00

    This book places the phenomenon of sports and games in its philological, archeological, and art historical context, and examines its connections to cultural and social history. The temporal scope extends from Tacitus' mention of dice games to courtly falconry and includes the culture of games among 17th century Swedish miners. The thematic spectrum... more...

  • Beyond the Cyborgby Margret Grebowicz; Helen Merrick; Donna Haraway

    Columbia University Press 2013; US$ 26.99

    Feminist theorist and philosopher Donna Haraway has substantially impacted thought on science, cyberculture, the environment, animals, and social relations. This long-overdue volume explores her influence on feminist theory and philosophy, paying particular attention to her more recent work on companion species, rather than her “Manifesto for Cyborgs.?... more...
