  • Von der Physik zur Metaphysikby Reiner Hedrich

    De Gruyter 2007; US$ 0.00

    Obwohl der Stringansatz als Versuch einer nomologisch vereinheitlichten Erfassung aller Wechselwirkungen, inklusive der Gravitation, schon über drei Jahrzehnte existiert, sind die ihm zugrundeliegenden physikalischen Prinzipien noch völlig unklar; und es gibt nicht die geringste empirisch überprüfbare, quantitative Vorhersage. Ohne empirische... more...

  • The Metaphysics of Extrinsic Propertiesby Vera Hoffmann-Kolss

    De Gruyter 2010; US$ 123.50

    This book aims to develop a philosophical theory of extrinsic properties ? of properties whose instantiation by an object does not only depend on what the object itself is like, but also on features of its environment. Various accounts of the intrinsic/extrinsic distinction are analysed in detail, and it is argued that the most promising... more...

  • Phenomenological Realism Versus Scientific Realismby Javier Cumpa; Erwin Tegtmeier

    De Gruyter 2009; US$ 95.42

    The two eminent metaphysicians Armstrong and Grossmann exchanged letters for ten years in which they discussed crucial points of their respective ontologies. They have a common basis.

  • Modelling Metaphysicsby Uwe Meixner

    De Gruyter 2009; US$ 106.65

    This book models and simulates metaphysics by presenting the metaphysics of a model. The small size of the model makes it possible to treat metaphysical matters with a more than usual systematicity and comprehensiveness. In the mirror of sustained analogy, simulation-metaphysics offers a wealth of insights on the real thing: on the doctrines,... more...

    De Gruyter 2011; US$ 123.50

    Since the 1960s there is a controversial discussion about the correct explication of the concept of knowledge in epistemology, but until today no generally accepted solution to the problem of defining this concept has been found.

  • On Meaning in Lifeby Beatrix Himmelmann

    De Gruyter 2013; US$ 101.03

    The question of meaning in life is as relevant and central as ever - in spite of all attempts at declaring it senseless. It does not disappear. But how should we deal with this question today? The collection presents a wide range of approaches, discussing subjectivist and objectivist answers, confronting concepts of meaning with notions... more...
