  • The Digital Cast of Beingby Michael Eldred

    De Gruyter 2009; US$ 77.00

    We live today surrounded by countless digital gadgets and navigate through cyberspace as if it were the most natural thing in the world.

  • The Right to Believeby Dariusz Lukasiewicz

    De Gruyter 2012; US$ 154.00

    In the twentieth century, many contemporary epistemologists in the analytic tradition have entered into debate regarding the right to belief with new tools: Richard Swinburne, Anthony Kenny, Alvin Plantinga, Nicholas Wolterstorff, Peter van Inwagen (who contributes a piece in this volume) defending or contesting the requirement of evidence... more...

  • Who Am I? Who Is She?by Gerard P. Montague

    De Gruyter 2012; US$ 182.00

    Are ‘persons’ physical things, members of the species homo sapiens which exist solely in materialist form, continuous in structure with other living things? Or is the issue a more complex one: are there more dimensions to being a person than mere physical, biological existence? These are matters of interest and discussion in many fields... more...

  • Sensibility and the Sublimeby David Weissman

    De Gruyter 2012; US$ 105.00

    Philosophic attention shifted after Hegel from Kant’s emphasis on sensibility to criticism and analyses of the fine arts. The arts themselves seemed as ample as nature; a disciplined science could devote as much energy to one as the other. But then the arts began to splinter because of new technologies: photography displaced figurative... more...

  • Der Umgang mit Wissen heuteby Kazimierz Rynkiewicz

    De Gruyter 2012; US$ 224.00

    Wollte man die Erkenntnistätigkeit der menschlichen Subjekte einer einfachen Analyse unterziehen, dann könnte man z.B. bei der Frage ansetzen: „Wie gehen die Menschen mit Erkenntnis um?“ Im 21. Jahrhundert wird das Erkennen im Kontext einer (post-)modernen Gesellschaft betrachtet, die viele pluralistische Varianten zulässt: Globale, soziale,... more...

  • On Explaining Existenceby Nicholas Rescher

    De Gruyter 2013; US$ 112.00

    No short book on the explanation of existence can afford the hubris of claiming to accomplish this task. And certainly no such claim can be or is being made here. What is at issue is not—and cannot be—an actual explanation. Rather, what is attempted here is at the very most a rough sketch of the conceptual architecture that an adequate... more...

  • The Trope Bundle Theory of Substanceby Márta Ujvári

    De Gruyter 2012; US$ 140.00

    This book supports a version of the trope-bundle view of individual substances matching also with a coherent account of change, individuation and individual essences. In particular, it is argued that qualitative individuation and qualitative individual essences can be tackled within the frames of a trope account. The adoption of a trope... more...

  • On Rules and Principlesby Nicholas Rescher

    De Gruyter 2010; US$ 154.00

    The present book is a natural outgrowth of Rescher’s longstanding preoccupation with the rational systematization of our knowledge as manifested in such earlier works as Cognitive Systematization (Oxford: Blackwell, 1979), and Complexity (New Brunswick: Transaction Publishers, 1998). Accordingly, the role of principles in human affairs... more...

  • Freudian Passionsby Jan Campbell

    Karnac Books 2013; US$ 26.99

    Freud's thinking about the unconscious has always been seen to be more about representations than affects. When it came to the passions of the transference and the demands of his hysterical patients, Freud was always more interested, wanted to move the focus away from the transference, and onto dreams. Hidden wishes more than manifest ones were what... more...
