  • The Vocation Lecturesby Weber Max; Owen David

    Hackett Publishing Company, Inc. 2004; US$ 13.50

    Originally published separately, Weber's "Science as a Vocation" and "Politics as a Vocation" stand as the classic formulations of his positions on two related subjects that go to the heart of his thought: the nature and status of science and its claims to authority; and the nature and status of political claims and the ultimate justification for such... more...

  • Political Philosophy: All That Mattersby Johanna Oksala

    Hodder & Stoughton 2013; US$ 6.99

    What is political philosophy? A philosophical study of political ideas such as authority, freedom, justice and democracy? An inquiry into the best form of government? An attempt to rationally justify forms of authority? Johanna Oksana asks exactly these questions as she opens this brilliant new guide to political philosophy. Rather than attempting... more...

  • Indeterminacy and Societyby Russell Hardin

    Princeton University Press 2013; US$ 31.95 US$ 29.07

    In simple action theory, when people choose between courses of action, they know what the outcome will be. When an individual is making a choice "against nature," such as switching on a light, that assumption may hold true. But in strategic interaction outcomes, indeterminacy is pervasive and often intractable. Whether one is choosing for oneself... more...

  • Cities, Real and Idealby David Weissman

    De Gruyter 2010; US$ 137.40

    Cities are conspicuous among settlements because of their bulk and pace: Venice, Paris, or New York. Each is distinctive, but all share a social structure that mixes systems (families, businesses, and schools), their members, and a public regulator. Cities alter this structure in ways specific to themselves: orchestras play music too elaborate... more...

  • Action: An Analysis of the Conceptby D. Rayfield

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 81.40

    During the past decade, there has been considerable interest among philosophers in providing a philosophically satisfactory and helpful ana­ lysis of a particular type of human behavior called action. As I see it, this interest is a renewal of the efforts of Aristotle, in Ethica Nicomachea, to provide an analysis of voluntary action. Because of this,... more...

  • The Political Philosophy of Giambattista Vicoby F. Vaughan

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 70.83

    It would be an understatement to say that the New Science is difficult to read. Most contemporary readers conclude with a Russian scholar that Vico's thought "is expressed in extremely naive forms, profound thoughts are interspersed with all sorts of pedantic trifles, the exposition is very confusing, yet it is beyond doubt that the basic idea is a... more...

  • The Abdication of Philosophy = The Abdication of Manby G.A. Rauche

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 89.86

    We live in a time of functionalism, operationalism and technologism with all its levelling, depersonalising and dehumanising effects. In such an age, the question arises of philosophy as critical, reflective theory about the world, man's position and purpose in the world and the relationship between philosophy and man as a free individual. This book... more...
