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

What role may ?epistemic virtues?... more...

  • Metaphysics and Truthmakersby Jean-Maurice Monnoyer

    De Gruyter 2007; US$ 168.00

    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... more...

  • Epistemology Modalizedby Kelly Becker

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 54.95

    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...

  • Das eigene Leben verstehenby Christian Budnik

    De Gruyter 2013; US$ 112.00

    This book argues that questions concerning personal identity cannot be answered without resorting to the first-person perspective. When individuals adopt the first-person perspective they are interested in understanding their own lives, and, in this way, can be said to be "working on" their normative identity. Yet this understanding of... more...

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

    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... more...

  • Das Wertfreiheitsideal in der sozialen Erkenntnistheorieby Anke Büter

    De Gruyter 2012; US$ 0.00

    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.... more...

  • Theory Of Knowledgeby Keith Lehrer

    Westview Press 2008; US$ 29.99

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

  • Wahrheit, Begründbarkeit und Fallibilitätby Boris Rähme

    De Gruyter 2010; US$ 168.00

    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... 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... 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... more...
