    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 2012; US$ 125.00

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

    De Gruyter 2012; US$ 137.00

    Can we have objective knowledge of the world? Can we understand what is morally right or wrong? Yes, to some extent. This is the answer given by Adam Smith and Edmund Husserl. Both rejected David Hume?s skeptical account of what we can hope to understand. But they held his empirical method in high regard, inquiring into the way we perceive and emotionally... more...

    De Gruyter 2011; US$ 119.00
