    WBG - Wissenschaftliche Buchgesellschaft 2014; US$ 36.35

    Jeden Tag werden wir durch die Medien mit Menschenrechtsverletzungen in aller Welt konfrontiert.

    WBG - Wissenschaftliche Buchgesellschaft 2012; US$ 76.36

    Mündigkeit ist für demokratische, offene Gesellschaften ein entscheidender Begriff. Mündig soll der Bürger sein, um über alle Fragen frei und souverän diskutieren zu können.

Kaufentscheidungen?... more...

    Profile Books 2010; US$ 11.98

    Time has always been the great Given, a fact of existence which cannot be denied or wished away; but the character of lived time is changing dramatically.

  • Driving With Platoby Robert Rowland Smith

    Profile Books 2011; US$ 11.98

    If life is meaningless as Sartre suggests, what is the point of being born? What does Freud have to say about losing one's virginity or Nietzsche about having a mid-life crisis? From birth to death (and beyond), the best brains in history have thought long and hard about the meaning behind the landmarks that shape our lives - and now acclaimed popular... more...

  • Self-Knowledgeby Brie Gertler

    Taylor and Francis 2010; US$ 41.95

The problem of self-knowledge is one of the most fascinating in all of philosophy and has crucial significance for the philosophy of mind and epistemology. In this outstanding introduction... more...

  • Jaspers, Jung und Jüngerby Albrecht Kiel

    Traugott Bautz 2015; US$ 15.46

    Die drei Zeitgenossen Jaspers, Jung und Jünger wandten sich auf getrennten Lebenswegen gegen das materialistische Dogma des 19. Jahrhunderts, wonach das Zeitalter der Metaphysik überwunden sei. Metaphysik war bisher als "Artikulation des Nichtwissens" (Jaspers) bloßes "Grenzland" der Weltorientierung gewesen. Durch die Sprachen... more...

  • The Oxford Handbook of Value Theoryby Iwao Hirose; Jonas Olson

    Oxford University Press 2015; US$ 149.99

    Value theory, or axiology, looks at what things are good or bad, how good or bad they are, and, most fundamentally, what it is for a thing to be good or bad.
