    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 Daten,... more...

  • Kontingenz und Zufallby Peter Vogt

    De Gruyter 2011; US$ 154.00

    In den letzten Jahrzehnten sind die Begriffe und Themen von Kontingenz und Zufall geradezu zu einem Modethema der Geistes- und Sozialwissenschaften geworden, in der Philosophie, aber auch in der Geschichtswissenschaft und in der Soziologie. Doch was genau ist unter Kontingenz oder Zufall zu verstehen? Dieser Frage widmet sich Peter Vogts Arbeit, in... more...

  • When Faith Storms the Public Squareby Kendall Clark Baker

    John Hunt Publishing 2011; US$ 9.99

    To some, the notion of mixing religious groups and community organizing may seem a pleasing prospect, an idea long overdue. To others, it may be anathema. Like it or not, however, this blending is a reality that has been forged in streets and meeting halls day by day, from the very beginnings of our country to the present-day touchstones of President... more...

  • Time Travelsby Elizabeth Grosz

    Allen & Unwin 2005; US$ 40.90

    Distinguished feminist theorist Elizabeth Grosz turns her attention to a topic long hinted at in feminist politics, but rarely elaborated: the question of time and how it relates to power and subjectivity. She shows how a deep understanding of the processes of time and change could underpin a whole new generation of scholarship. more...

  • Causation and Persistenceby Douglas Ehring

    Oxford University Press 1997; US$ 109.99

    The author shows the inadequacy of received theories of causation, and, introducing conceptual devices of his own, provides an account of causation as the persistence over time of individual properties or "tropes." more...

  • The Syntax of Timeby Peter Manchester

    BRILL 2005; US$ 139.00

    Bridging from Husserl to Iamblichus, this book contributes phenomenological readings of Plotinus, Aristotle, Parmenides, and Heraclitus, in which prevalent misconceptions about the very identity of time in the phenomena of motion are corrected, and time's role in Greek philosophy recovered. more...

  • Nature's Principlesby Jan Faye; Paul Needham; Uwe Scheffler

    Springer 2006; US$ 269.00

    One of the most basic problems in the philosophy of science involves determining the extent to which nature is governed by laws.

  • Understanding Natureby H. Zwart

    Springer 2008; US$ 239.00

    We tend to identify ???real??? knowledge of nature with science, and for good reasons. The sciences have developed unique ways of disclosing and modifying the intricate workings of nature, building on quantitative, experimental and technologically advanced styles of thinking. Scientific research has produced robust and reliable forms of knowledge,... more...
