  • Freedom and Solidarityby Fred Dallmayr

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 60.00

    The prevailing Western paradigm is modernity: a model focused on individual liberty, secularism, and the scientific control of nature. This worldview emerged from the break with the medieval and classical past and advanced a philosophy in which the solitary mind opposes the rest of the world. Although there is a simple appeal in this binary structure,... more...

  • The Logic of Estrangementby Julius Sensat

    Palgrave Macmillan 2015; US$ 100.00

    The book recasts the concept of estrangement as `reason in an unreasonable form', traces its development in writings of Kant, Hegel, and Marx, supplies a game-theoretic reconstruction of it, and assesses its significance for a critical understanding of John Rawls's philosophy. more...

  • The Phenomenology of Socialityby Thomas Szanto; Dermot Moran

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 54.95

    Phenomenological accounts of sociality in Husserl, Heidegger, Merleau-Ponty, Sartre, Scheler, Schütz, Stein and many others offer powerful lines of arguments to recast current, predominantly analytic, discussions on collective intentionality and social cognition. Against this background, the aim of this volume is to reevaluate, critically and in contemporary... more...

  • Reification and the Aesthetics of Musicby Jonathan Lewis

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 54.95

    This innovative study re-evaluates the philosophical significance of aesthetics in the context of contemporary debates on the nature of philosophy. Lewis's main argument is that contemporary conceptions of meaning and truth have been reified, and that aesthetics is able to articulate why this is the case, with important consequences for understanding... more...

  • Aphorismsby Franz Kafka; Daniel Frank

    Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group 2015; US$ 18.95 US$ 13.99

    The aphorism eludes definition: it can appear to be a random jotting or a more polished observation. Whether arbitrary fragment or crystalline shard, an aphorism captures the inception of a thought. Franz Kafka composed aphorisms during two periods in his life. A series of 109 was written between September 1917 and April 1918, in Zürau, West Bohemia,... more...
