  • The Importance of Spinoza for the Modern Philosophy of Scienceby Nancy Brenner-Golomb

    De Gruyter 2010; US$ 196.00

    The question raised in this book is why Spinoza?s work which comes so close to the modern view of natural science is not prominent in the social sciences. The answer suggested is that this is due to the lingering influence of the Cartesian differentiation between the domain of science, dealing with material bodies in space and time, and the realm of... more...

  • 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.

  • 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...
