  • 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

    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$ 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...

  • 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 the first-person... more...

  • Das Wertfreiheitsideal in der sozialen Erkenntnistheorieby Anke Büter

    De Gruyter Open 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. Eine Fallstudie... 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$ 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...

  • 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...
