  • Wahrheit, Begründbarkeit und Fallibilitätby Boris Rähme

    De Gruyter 2010; US$ 154.00

    Im Zentrum epistemischer Wahrheitskonzeptionen stehen die folgenden beiden Thesen: (1) Der Wahrheitsbegriff kann durch epistemische Konzepte idealer Begründbarkeit, Behauptbarkeit, Kohärenz oder Konsensfähigkeit expliziert werden. (2) Die Annahme, es könnte wahre Aussagen geben, die prinzipiell nicht als wahr erkennbar oder doch begründbar sind, ist... more...

  • Collective Epistemologyby Marcel Weber; Hans Bernhard Schmid; Daniel Sirtes

    De Gruyter 2011; US$ 133.00

    ?We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal?? This collection of essays addresses a philosophical problem raised by the first clause of these famous words. Does each signatory of the Declaration of Independence hold these truths individually, do they share some kind of a common attitude, or is there a single subject over... more...

  • Das Wertfreiheitsideal in der sozialen Erkenntnistheorieby Anke Büter

    De Gruyter Open 2012; US$ 125.00

    Die Wertfreiheit der Wissenschaft gilt als Bedingung ihrer Objektivität. Eine Analyse des entsprechenden Wertfreiheitsideals zeigt jedoch, dass dieses auf einer Reihe von Voraussetzungen beruht ? wie der Trennbarkeit kognitiver von anderen Werten und der epistemischen Unabhängigkeit der Rechtfertigung ? die sich als problematisch erweisen. Eine Fallstudie... more...

  • Contextual Approaches to Truth and the Strengthened Liar Paradoxby Christine Schurz

    De Gruyter 2013; US$ 97.00

    The problem of truth and the liar paradox is one of the most extensive problems of philosophy. The liar paradox can be avoided by assuming a so-called theory of partial truth instead of a classical theory of truth. Theories of partial truth, however, cannot solve the so-called strengthened liar paradox, which is the problem that many semantic statements... more...

  • Truth: Its Nature, Criteria and Conditionsby Haig Khatchadourian

    De Gruyter 2011; US$ 91.00

    Truth: Its criteria and conditions is an in-depth critical-and-constructive inquiry in almost equal measure. The theories of the nature of empirical truth critically considered include two forms of the traditional correspondence theory; truth as appraisal; truth as identity of proposition and truth; en emotive theory of truth; P.F. Strawson?s performative... more...

  • Erkenntnistheorie moralischer Überzeugungenby Bruno Niederbacher

    De Gruyter 2011; US$ 133.00

    Menschen haben eine Fülle von moralischen Überzeugungen. Wodurch sind diese Überzeugungen aber gerechtfertigt? In diesem Buch wird dafür argumentiert, dass verschiedene Arten von Gründen zur Rechtfertigung von moralischen Überzeugungen beitragen können: Gründe, die ihrerseits Überzeugungen sind, aber auch Gründe, die selbst keine Überzeugungen sind... more...

  • Foundations of an Ethics of Beliefby Anne Meylan

    De Gruyter 2013; US$ 111.00

    In our daily lives we make lots of evaluations of actions. We think that driving above the speed limit is dangerous, that giving up one?s bus seat to the elderly is polite, that stirring eggs with a plastic spoon is neither good nor bad. We understand, too, that we may be praised or blamed for actions performed on the basis of these evaluations. The... more...

  • Is Truth the Primary Epistemic Goal?by Markus Patrick Hess

    De Gruyter 2010; US$ 105.00

    This book is focused on a problem that has aroused the most controversy in recent epistemological debate, which is whether the truth can or cannot be the fundamental epistemic goal. Traditional epistemology has presupposed the centrality of truth without giving a deeper analysis. To epistemic value pluralists, the claim that truth is the fundamental... more...

    Westview Press 2008; US$ 42.00

    In this impressive second edition of Theory of Knowledge, Keith Lehrer introduces students to the major traditional and contemporary accounts of knowing.
