  • Transcendence and Beyondby John D. Caputo; Michael J. Scanlon

    Indiana University Press 2007; US$ 21.20

    Transcendence and Beyond poses the classical questions of transcendence in a postmodern setting. Do we need a transcendence that is ever more beyond or should we put transcendence behind us altogether? Is it the case that, when seen in a postmodern light, transcendence must be itself transcended? In... more...

  • The Big Bang and Relative Immortalityby Sebastian Sisti

    Algora Publishing 2008; US$ 29.95

    This series of brief and sparkling philosophical essays explores the Principle of Continuity as it impacts discussions of the Big Bang and the expansion of the universe, God, infinity, biological immortality and evolution. From Ancient Greece to the frontiers of modern science, some egregious blunders have been made in both philosophy and in theoretical... more...

  • Causation, Physics, and the Constitution of Realityby Huw Price; Richard Corry

    Oxford University Press, UK 2007; US$ 45.00

    The difference between cause and effect seems obvious and crucial in ordinary life, yet missing from modern physics. Almost a century ago, Bertrand Russell called the law of causality 'a relic of a bygone age'. In this important collection 13 leading scholars revisit Russell's revolutionary conclusion, discussing one of the most significant... more...

  • Space, Geometry and Aestheticsby Dr Peg Rawes

    Palgrave Macmillan 2008; US$ 100.00

    Examining multiple modes of spatio-temporal and geometric figurations of life, the author explores how relationships between space, geometry and aesthetics generate productive expressions of subjectivity, developed through Kant's 'reflective subject' and 'geometric' texts by Plato and others towards Deleuze's philosophy of sense. more...

  • Language and Timeby Quentin Smith

    Oxford University Press, USA 2002; US$ 44.99

    This book offers a defense of the tensed theory of time, a critique of the New Theory of Reference, and an argument that simultaneity is absolute. Although Smith rejects ordinary language philosophy, he shows how it is possible to argue from the nature of language to the nature of reality. Specifically, he argues that semantic properties of tensed... more...

  • Divine Interventionby Evan Fales

    Taylor and Francis 2010; US$ 150.00

    The central theme of this book is that it's not enough to invoke omnipotence and omniscience as answers to the questions of God?s ability to create and causally affect the world (i.e., perform miracles) and human beings (i.e., to cause mystical experiences) and, conversely, God?s ability to perceive, or otherwise know about the world. Rather, it is... more...

  • Time, Space, and Metaphysicsby Bede Rundle

    Oxford University Press 2009; US$ 84.99

    Time, Space, and Metaphysics engages with major philosophical questions concerning time and space, a framework for the investigation being provided by the debate between the absolutists and the relationists, so between Newton and Leibniz, and their followers. The investigation brings to the fore questions of the nature and reality of time and space,... more...

  • The Constants Of Natureby John D. Barrow

    Random House 2010; US$ 15.55

    The constants of nature are the numbers that define the essence of the Universe. They tell us how strong its forces are, and what its fundamental laws can do: the strength of gravity, of magnetism, the speed of light, and the masses of the smallest particles of matter. They encode the deepest secrets of the Universe and express at once our greatest... more...

  • The Greek Cosmologists: Volume 1, The Formation of the Atomic Theory and its Earliest Criticsby David Furley

    Cambridge University Press 1987; US$ 43.00

  • Axiogenesisby Nicholas Rescher

    Lexington Books 2010; US$ 84.99

    Axiogenesis is an innovative philosophical work that dares to answer the question of the ultimate reason is behind the world's existence and nature. Despite drawing on various strands of neo-Platonic thought, Nicholas Rescher crafts an argument for a metaphysical theory grounded in evaluative considerations that is undeniably unique. With a keen intellectualism,... more...
