    The social and cultural changes of the last century have transformed death from an everyday fact to something hidden from view.

  • A Prioriby Edwin Mares

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 29.95

    In recent years many influential philosophers have advocated that philosophy is an a priori science. Yet very few epistemology textbooks discuss a priori knowledge at any length, focusing instead on empirical knowledge and empirical justification. As a priori knowledge has moved centre stage, the literature remains either too technical or too out of... more...

    Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht 2013; US$ 52.18

    WBG - Wissenschaftliche Buchgesellschaft 2013; US$ 16.69

    Sind wir Menschen wirklich so autonom, wie wir für gewöhnlich glauben?

Friedhelm Decher zeigt in diesem Buch, dass unsere Wahrnehmung von der Welt trügt: Auf dem Weg zur Erkenntnis... more...

    Campus Verlag 2013; US$ 28.17

    Der Mensch ist ein soziales Wesen, das in Beziehungen zu anderen Menschen lebt. Diese alteuropäische Denkvoraussetzung hat den Menschen aus dem Fokus der Soziologie gerückt.

We can now exist in several time-zones simultaneously, but we suffer from endemic shortages of... more...
