    Palgrave Macmillan 1994; US$ 176.00

    The non-technical, basic yet familiar features of time are investigated, e.g. two novel, detailed arguments defending the common view that 'time rolls relentlessly' are advanced; a number of hitherto neglected fundamental differences between spatio-temporal location and every other physical property are discussed; the unresolved problem, why the past... more...

  • Raum und Zeitby Andreas Müller

    Springer 2012; US$ 19.95

    Raum und Zeit sind die große Bühne, auf der sich unser Leben und alle irdischen und kosmischen Vorgänge abspielen. Meist erleben wir Raum und Zeit als unveränderlich und unbeeinflussbar. Doch Raum und Zeit könnten Eigenschaften haben, von denen selbst Einstein nicht zu träumen wagte. Andreas Müller erläutert... more...

  • The Oxford Handbook of Philosophy of Timeby Craig Callender

    Oxford University Press 2011; US$ 149.99

    As the study of time has flourished in the physical and human sciences, the philosophy of time has come into its own as a lively and diverse area of academic research. Philosophers investigate not just the metaphysics of time, and our experience and representation of time, but the role of time in ethics and action, and philosophical issues in the sciences... more...

  • The Noetics of Natureby Bruce V. Foltz

    Fordham University Press 2013; US$ 25.99

    Contemplative or "noetic" knowledge has traditionally been seen as the highest mode of understanding, a view that persists both in many non-Western cultures and in Eastern Christianity, where "theoria physike," or the illumined understanding of creation that follows the purification of the heart, is seen to provide deeper insights... more...

    Palgrave Macmillan 2013; US$ 105.00

    This first full length treatment of interventionist theories of causation in the social sciences, the biological sciences and other higher-level sciences the presents original counter arguments to recent trends in the debate and serves as useful introduction to the subject. more...

  • Prismatic Ecologyby Jeffrey Jerome Cohen

    University of Minnesota Press 2013; US$ 75.00

    Prismatic Ecology moves beyond the accustomed green readings of ecotheory and maps a colorful world of ecological possibility. By way of color, Jeffrey Jerome Cohen guides readers through a reflection of an essentially complex and disordered universe and demonstrates the spectrum as an unfinishable totality, always in excess of what a human perceives.... more...

  • Our Broad Presentby Hans Ulrich Gumbrecht

    Columbia University Press 2014; US$ 24.99

    Considering a range of present-day phenomena, from the immediacy effects of literature to the impact of hypercommunication, globalization, and sports, Hans Ulrich Gumbrecht notes an important shift in our relationship to history and the passage of time. Although we continue to use concepts inherited from a “historicist? viewpoint, a notion of time... more...

  • God and the Multiverseby Klaas Kraay

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 125.00

    In recent decades, scientific theories have postulated the existence of many universes beyond our own. The details and implications of these theories are hotly contested. Some philosophers argue that these scientific models count against the existence of God. Others, however, argue that if God exists, a multiverse is precisely what we should expect... more...

  • Zeit und Bildby Kristóf Nyíri

    transcript 2014; US$ 23.69

    Denken vollzieht sich nicht bloß in Wörtern, sondern auch - wesentlich - in kinästhetisch fundierten mentalen Bildern. Unsere alltäglichen Zeitmetaphern entsprechen bildlich vermittelten leiblichen Erfahrungen und führen zu einer Common-Sense-Auffassung der Wirklichkeit der Zeit, welche von der Philosophie nicht widerlegt, sondern gerechtfertigt werden... more...
