  • A Priori Knowledgeby Tommaso Piazza

    De Gruyter 2006; US$ 118.00

    The book sets out to analyze the notion of a priori justification and of a priori knowledge.

  • Principles of Truthby Volker Halbach; Leon Horsten

    De Gruyter 2004; US$ 69.00

    On the one hand, the concept of truth is a major research subject in analytic philosophy.

    This volume collects papers that were presented at the 34th International Ludwig Wittgenstein Symposium 2011 in Kirchberg am Wechsel, Austria.

  • Metaphysics and Truthmakersby Jean-Maurice Monnoyer

    De Gruyter 2007; US$ 137.00

    The essays collected in this volume concern the general question of truthmaking.

Taking as their starting point a famous seminal paper by K. Mulligan, P. Simons and B. Smith, as... more...

  • Epistemology Modalizedby Kelly Becker

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 49.95

    This book sets out first to explain how two fairly recent developments in philosophy, externalism and modalism, provide the basis for a promising account of knowledge, and then works through the different modalized epistemologies extant in the literature, assessing their strengths and weaknesses. Finally, the author proposes the theory that knowledge... more...
