  • Meaning and Value in a Secular Ageby Nathan Bupp; Paul Kurtz

    Prometheus Books 2012; US$ 11.99

    The secular age has confronted human beings with a fundamental challenge. While the naturalistic worldview rooted in science has persuasively shown that traditional religious conceptions of the universe are unsustainable, it has so far offered no compelling secular narratives to replace the religious narratives so entrenched in civilization. In the... more...

  • Existenzphilosophie und Ethikby Hans Feger; Manuela Hackel

    De Gruyter 2013; US$ 126.00

    A longstanding controversy in philosophy concerns whether it is possible to develop an ethics on the basis of existential philosophy.

    De Gruyter 2009; US$ 154.00

  • Doubtful Certaintiesby Margit Gaffal; Jesús Padilla Gálvez

    De Gruyter 2012; US$ 125.00

    To what extent can we doubt certainties? How are certainties expressed in words? Which language games convey certainty?
