  • On certainty and other philosophical essays on cognitionby Nicholas Rescher

    De Gruyter 2011; US$ 105.00

    On Certainty continues Rescher’s longstanding practice of publishing occasional studies that form part of a wider program of investigation of the scope and limits of rational inquiry in the pursuit of understanding.

  • 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?

  • 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.
