    Ohio University Press 2014; US$ 27.99

    From Mastery to Mystery is an original and provocative contribution to the burgeoningfield of ecophenomenology.

  • Causation and Universalsby Evan Fales

    Taylor and Francis 2002; US$ 155.00

    The world contains objective causal relations and universals, both of which are intimately connected. If these claims are true, they must have far-reaching consequences, breathing new life into the theory of empirical knowledge and reinforcing epistemological realism. Without causes and universals, Professor Fales argues, realism is defeated, and idealism... more...

  • Space and Timeby Vincenzo Fano; Francesco Orilia; Giovanni Macchia

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 140.00

    The articles in this volume focus on the ontology of space and time, including the themes of substantivalism vs. relationism, continuity vs. discreteness, and time travel. In the current debate on these issues, there is a tendency to separate too rigidly between a priori and a posteriori approaches. This volume aims to bridge the gap between... more...

  • Causality and Motivationby Roberto Poli

    De Gruyter 2010; US$ 119.00

    The belief is widely held that the physical world is causally-driven. The world is one because a tangled web of causally-driven processes keeps it together. However, both the psychological and the social worlds cannot be articulated in causal terms only. Hereby, ?motivation? is used as the most general term referring to whatever keeps... more...

  • Ursachenby Andreas Hüttemann

    De Gruyter 2013; US$ 28.00

    The concept of cause plays a central role in explaining, controlling, and assigning responsibility for events.

This new volume follows the proven format of the Basic Questions in Philosophy series:After... more...
