  • Essays in Philosophy and Its Historyby Wilfrid Sellars

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 319.00

    In pulling these essays together for inclusion in one volume I do not believe that I have done them violence. Since they originally appeared at different times and places they constitute a scattered object. Never­ theless, to the author's eye they have unities of theme and development which, if they fail to give them the true identity of the book,... more...

  • Evolution der Ethikby Emerich Sumser

    De Gruyter 2016; US$ 70.00

    There are conflicts in moral judgment between philosophies, between cultures, and even inside an individual conscience. This study takes an interdisciplinary approach focused on modern evolutionary biology to show that such contradictions are systemically determined in a social, functional world. The resulting model of a ?relation-type... more...

  • Evolution of Life and Formby Annie Besant

    The Floating Press 2014; US$ 3.99

    Because of her early work as a secular activist who labored tirelessly in support of activities like increasing women's access to birth control information, it surprised many of Annie Besant's friends and colleagues when she developed a strong interest in the esoteric spiritual practice known as Theosophy. But rather than abandoning her previous... more...

  • Explaining Scienceby Ronald N. Giere

    University of Chicago Press 2010; US$ 32.00

    "This volume presents an attempt to construct a unified cognitive theory of science in relatively short compass. It confronts the strong program in sociology of science and the positions of various postpositivist philosophers of science, developing significant alternatives to each in a reeadily comprehensible sytle. It draws loosely on recent developments... more...

  • Faith and Wisdom in Scienceby Tom McLeish

    Oxford University Press, USA 2014; US$ 12.99

    "Do you have wisdom to count the clouds?" asks the voice of God from the whirlwind in the stunningly beautiful catalogue of nature-questions from the Old Testament Book of Job. Tom McLeish takes a scientist's reading of this ancient text as a centrepiece to make the case for science as a deeply human and ancient activity, embedded in... more...

    Wiley 2013; US$ 26.95

    This book is the first comprehensive critical study of the work of Paul Feyerabend, one of the foremost twentieth-century philosophers of science. The book traces the evolution of Feyerabend's thought, beginning with his early attempt to graft insights from Wittgenstein's conception of meaning onto Popper's falsificationist philosophy. The key... more...

  • For Dirk Struikby Robert S. Cohen; J.J. Stachel; Marx W. Wartofsky

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 389.00

    It is fitting that Professor Dirk Jan Struik be greeted with this melange of mathematical, scientific, historical, sociological and political essays. The authors are also appropriately varied: different countries, outlooks, religions, generations, and we suppose - of course we did not as- different politics too. Many more would have joined us, we know,... more...
