    In Software gegossene Algorithmen, die Schachweltmeister besiegen oder bei Fragespielen erfolgreich gegen Menschen bestehen, zeigen die radikalen Änderungen in einer durch Software gtriebenen Welt, für deren Verständnis Brücken zwischen Informatikern sowie Technikern und Philosophen notwendig sind.

  • Time for Peaceby Luc Reychler

    University of Queensland Press 2015; US$ 16.99

    For building sustainable peace and security, the time is always now. Violence in our world extends beyond armed conflicts: it exists in our social and economic structures, not to mention in our destruction of the environment. How can we build more sustainable development and peace? In this innovative, ambitious book, Dr Luc Reychler argues that we... more...

  • Autonomous Natureby Carolyn Merchant

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 41.95

    Autonomous Nature investigates the history of nature as an active, often unruly force in tension with nature as a rational, logical order from ancient times to the Scientific Revolution of the seventeenth century. Along with subsequent advances in mechanics, hydrodynamics, thermodynamics, and electromagnetism, nature came to be perceived as an orderly,... more...

  • The Physicist and the Philosopherby Jimena Canales

    Princeton University Press 2015; US$ 24.95 US$ 22.70

    On April 6, 1922, in Paris, Albert Einstein and Henri Bergson publicly debated the nature of time. Einstein considered Bergson's theory of time to be a soft, psychological notion, irreconcilable with the quantitative realities of physics. Bergson, who gained fame as a philosopher by arguing that time should not be understood exclusively through the... more...

  • Causation, Evidence, and Inferenceby Julian Reiss

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 54.95

    In this book, Reiss argues in favor of a tight fit between evidence, concept and purpose in our causal investigations in the sciences. There is no doubt that the sciences employ a vast array of techniques to address causal questions such as controlled experiments, randomized trials, statistical and econometric tools, causal modeling and thought experiments.... more...

  • Stoneby Jeffrey Jerome Cohen

    University of Minnesota Press 2015; Not Available

    Stone maps the force, vivacity, and stories within our most mundane matter, stone. For too long stone has served as an unexamined metaphor for the ?really real?: blunt factuality, nature?s curt rebuke. Yet, medieval writers knew that stones drop with fire from the sky, emerge through the subterranean lovemaking of the elements, tumble along riverbeds... more...

  • The Philosophy of Timeby Roger McLure

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 54.95

    The question of the existence and the properties of time has been subject to debate for thousands of years. This considered and complete study offers a contrastive analysis of phenomenologies of time from the perspective of the problematics of the visibility of time. Is time perceptible only through the veil of change? Or is there a naked presence... more...

  • Chronos in Aristotle?s Physicsby Chelsea C. Harry

    Springer International Publishing 2015; US$ 45.45

    This book is a contribution both to Aristotle studies and to the philosophy of nature, and not only offers a thorough text based account of time as modally potentiality in Aristotle?s account, but also clarifies the process of ?actualizing time? as taking time and looks at the implications of conceiving a world without actual time. It speaks to the... more...

  • Modernity, Metatheory, and the Temporal-Spatial Divideby Michael Kimaid

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 54.95

    This book is about how modernity affects our perceptions of time and space. Its main argument is that geographical space is used to control temporal progress by channeling it to benefit particular political, economic and social interests, or by halting it altogether. By incorporating the ancient Greek myth of the Titanomachy as a conceptual metaphor... more...
