    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.

  • 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.

  • Making Sense of Natureby Noel Castree

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 54.95

    We listen to a cacophony of voices instructing us how to think and feel about nature, including our own bodies. The news media, wildlife documentaries, science magazines, and environmental NGOs are among those clamouring for our attention. But are we empowered by all this knowledge or is our dependence on various communities allowing our thoughts,... 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Timely Topicsby George N. Schlesinger

    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...

  • The Rediscovery of Wisdomby David Conway

    Palgrave Macmillan 2000; US$ 176.00

    By reconstructing it and tracing its vicissitudes, David Conway rehabilitates a time-honoured conception of philosophy, originating in Plato and Aristotle, which makes theoretical wisdom its aim. Wisdom is equated with possessing a demonstrably correct understanding of why the world exists and has the broad character it does. Adherents of this conception... more...
