    De Gruyter 2004; US$ 70.00

    Ontologie, Wahrheit und Kausalität stellt den Versuch dar, die ontologische Analyse von Kausalität vor dem Hintergrund der Verteidigung von Ontologie im traditionellen Sinne einer realistischen Kategorientheorie zu führen.

  • Value Mattersby Nicholas Rescher

    De Gruyter 2004; US$ 91.00

    For many years value theory has figured high on the agenda of my interests, a fact attested by Introduction to Value Theory published by Prentice Hall in 1969. This interest has continued in recent years inter alia, finding earlier expressions in the articles constituting chapters 2-4 of the present book. (See the footnotes for publication details.)... more...

  • Epistemic Meritby Nicholas Rescher

    De Gruyter 2013; US$ 97.00

    The present book continues Rescher?s longstanding practice of publishing groups of philosophical essays that originated in occasional lecture and conference presentations. Notwithstanding their topical diversity they exhibit a uniformity of method in a common attempt to view historically significant philosophical issues in the light of modern perspectives... more...

  • Epistemology: Contexts, Values, Disagreementby Christoph Jäger; Winfried Löffler

    De Gruyter 2007; US$ 182.00

    This volume collects papers that were presented at the 34th International Ludwig Wittgenstein Symposium 2011 in Kirchberg am Wechsel, Austria. They focus on five key debates in contemporary epistemology: Does the term ?to know? vary its meaning according to features of the contexts in which it is uttered? What role may ?epistemic virtues? play in our... more...

  • Metaphysics and Truthmakersby Jean-Maurice Monnoyer

    De Gruyter 2007; US$ 154.00

    The essays collected in this volume concern the general question of truthmaking. Most of them also bear upon the metaphysical nature of truthmakers (moments, tropes, property-instances, Aristotelian substances, states of affairs, meanings or essences? ). Taking as their starting point a famous seminal paper by K. Mulligan, P. Simons and B. Smith, as... 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...
