  • Blameworthy Beliefby Nikolaj Nottelmann

    Springer 2007; US$ 209.00

    Believing the wrong thing may sometimes have drastic consequences. The question as to when a person is not only ill-guided, but genuinely at fault for holding a particular belief is an important one: It touches upon the roots of our understanding of such notions as criminal negligence and moral responsibility. The answer to this question may influence... more...

  • An Identity Theory of Truthby Julian Dodd

    Palgrave Macmillan 2008; US$ 36.00

    Dodd explains that correspondence theories of truth fail because the relation between true thought and fact is identity, not correspondence. Facts are not complexes of worldly entities which make thoughts true; they are merely true thoughts. The resulting modest identity theory allows for a defensible deflation of the concept of truth. more...

  • Begriffsgeschichte der Naturwissenschaftenby Ernst Müller; Falko Schmieder

    De Gruyter 2008; US$ 196.00

    The increasing cultural significance of the natural sciences presents conceptual history with the task of reorganising its categories and methods. The greatest challenge here is the merging of conceptual history and the history of science and the integration of the natural sciences in the project of an interdisciplinary cultural history. The present... more...

    Marquette University Press 2006; US$ 27.00

    The modern hope of attaining purely rational and objective knowledge has faltered, to the joy of some and worry of others. Philosophy's attempt to see reality with a god's-eye view is increasingly viewed as unlikely or undesirable, but what fills the vacuum now that the modern project is in jeopardy? Through a Glass Darkly examines the thought... more...

    Taylor and Francis 2010; US$ 44.95

    What is Knowledge? Where does it come from? Can we know anything at all?

  • Épistémologie de la science politiqueby Lawrence Olivier; Guy Bédard; Jean-François Thibault

    Presses de l''niversite du Quebec 1998; US$ 24.00

    Qu'est-ce que l'épistémologie et quelle est son utilité en science politique? La science politique peut-elle nous expliquer le comment et les raisons qui ont causé un événement?
