    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 29.95

    Like us, the ancient Greeks and Romans came to know and understand the world through their senses. Yet sensory experience has rarely been considered in the study of antiquity and, when the senses are examined, sight is regularly privileged.

    Columbia University Press 2014; US$ 44.99

    Poststructuralists hold Hegel responsible for giving rise to many of modern philosophy?s problematic concepts—the authority of reason, self-consciousness, the knowing subject. Yet, according to Simon Lumsden, this animosity is rooted in a fundamental misunderstanding of Hegel?s thought, and resolving this tension can not only heal the rift between... more...

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 154.00

    This book investigates how it is possible for us to know what is metaphysically possible.

  • Wissens-Ordnungenby Nicola Gess; Sandra Janßen

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 140.00
