  • The Rational and the Social (RLE Social Theory)by James Robert Brown

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 100.00

    To paraphrase Marx, sociologists have only interpreted science; the point is to improve it. The Rational and the Social attempts both. It begins by sketching recent sociological approaches to science, notably the strong programme ? Bloor?s ?science of science? and Barnes?s ?finitism? ? and that of the ?anthropologists in the lab?, Collins and Latour... more...

  • Marx and Mead (RLE Social Theory)by Tom W. Goff

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 100.00

    It has often been suggested that a resolution of issues generated by the sociological study of ideas might be reached through a synthesis of specific insights to be found in the works of Karl Marx and George Herbert Mead. The present study originated in an investigation of this hypothesis, particularly as it bears on the central issue of sociological... more...

  • Value Theory in Philosophy and Social Science (RLE Social Theory)by Ervin Laszlo; James B. Wilbur

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 100.00

    The annual Conferences on Value Inquiry bring together philosophers, scientists and humanists to discuss the many facets of the problem of value in the experience of the individual and in contemporary society. One of the criteria in choosing papers for the Conference is the ability to stimulate discussion and clarification. The papers in the present... more...

  • Knowledge and Social Structure (RLE Social Theory)by Peter Hamilton

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 100.00

    The primary concern of this study is to present, elucidate and analyse the developments which have characterized the sociology of knowledge, and which have set for it the outlines of its major problematics. Peter Hamilton examines the most distinctive approaches to the determinate relationship between knowledge and social structure. He considers the... more...

  • Knowledge and Politics (RLE Social Theory)by Volker Meja; Nico Stehr

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 130.00

    Karl Mannheim?s Ideology and Utopia has been a profoundly provocative book. The debate about politics and social knowledge that was spawned by its original publication in 1929 attracted the most promising younger scholars, some of whom shaped the thought of several generations. The book became a focus for a debate on the methodological and epistemological... more...

  • Interests and the Growth of Knowledge (RLE Social Theory)by Barry Barnes

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 100.00

    Intriguingly different in approach from conventional works in the same area of inquiry, this study deals with the central problems and concerns of the sociology of knowledge as it has traditionally been conceived of. In other words, it is concerned with the relationship of knowledge, social interests and social structure, and with the various attempts... more...

  • Philosophy Goes to the Moviesby Christopher Falzon

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 39.95

    Now emulated in several competing publications, but still unsurpassed in clarity and insight, Philosophy Goes to the Movies: An Introduction to Philosophy, Third Edition builds on the approach that made the two earlier editions so successful. Drawing on many popular and some lesser known films from around the world, Christopher Falzon introduces... more...

  • Einführung in die Erkenntnistheorieby Gerhard Ernst

    WBG - Wissenschaftliche Buchgesellschaft 2014; US$ 16.74

    Dieser Band führt umfassend in die Probleme der Erkenntnistheorie ein. Dabei stehen zwei Fragen im Mittelpunkt: 1. Was können wir wissen? 2. Was ist Wissen? Die erste Frage stellt sich in Anbetracht der Herausforderung durch den Skeptiker, der uns (so gut wie) alles Wissen abspricht. Die zweite Frage ergibt sich aus dem Versuch, die erste Frage zu... more...

  • Our Knowledge of the Growth of Knowledge (Routledge Revivals)by Peter Munz

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 51.95

    Peter Munz, a former student of both Popper and Wittgenstein, begins his comparison of the two great twentieth-century philosophers, by explaining that since the demise of positivism there have emerged, broadly speaking, two philosophical options: Wittgenstein, with the absolute relativism of his theory that meaning is a function of language games... more...

  • Remembering Placesby Janet Donohoe

    Lexington Books 2014; US$ 79.99

    This study provides insight into the human desire to return to important places of our past and to establish places of memory. Drawing upon philosophers such as Husserl, Heidegger, Merleau-Ponty, Gadamer, and Ricoeur, Janet Donohoe uses the idea of a palimpsest as a jumping-off point to explore how we make and preserve memories. more...
