Epistemology. Theory of knowledge

  • A Prioriby Edwin Mares

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 29.95

    In recent years many influential philosophers have advocated that philosophy is an a priori science. Yet very few epistemology textbooks discuss a priori knowledge at any length, focusing instead on empirical knowledge and empirical justification. As a priori knowledge has moved centre stage, the literature remains either too technical or too out of... more...

  • Humeby H. W. Noonan

    Oneworld Publications 2014; US$ 14.95

    The father of modern scepticism and perhaps the most important English philosopher, Hume was lauded within his own lifetime as a pivotal figure of the Enlightenment. His 'naturalist' approach to a wide variety of philosophical topics resulted in highly original theories of perception, personal identity, causation, politics, morality, and religion,... more...

  • Hopeby Stan van Hooft

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 18.95

    From the now iconic Barack Obama 'Hope' poster of the 2008 presidential campaign to the pit-head 'Camp Hope' of the families of the trapped Chilean miners, the language of hope can be hugely powerful as it draws on resources that are uniquely human and universal. We are beings who hope. But what does that say about us? What is hope and what role does... more...

  • Synaesthesia and the Ancient Sensesby Shane Butler; Alex Purves

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 29.95

    Like us, the ancient Greeks and Romans came to know and understand the world through their senses. Yet sensory experience has rarely been considered in the study of antiquity and, when the senses are examined, sight is regularly privileged. 'Synaesthesia and the Ancient Senses' presents a radical reappraisal of antiquity's textures, flavours, and aromas,... more...

  • Wissen ist keine Gluckssacheby Wilfried H. Lindenzweig

    Wiley 2014; US$ 21.95

    Warum haben Medikamente Nebenwirkungen? Wie gefährlich ist Strahlung? Wieso können wir mit einer wertlosen Plastikkarte Dinge bezahlen? Wie könnten Außerirdische aussehen? Diesen und vielen weiteren Fragen widmet sich Wilfried Lindenzweig aus Sicht des Naturwissenschaftlers. more...

  • Self-Consciousness and the Critique of the Subjectby Simon Lumsden

    Columbia University Press 2014; US$ 44.99

    Poststructuralists hold Hegel responsible for giving rise to many of modern philosophy?s problematic concepts—the authority of reason, self-consciousness, the knowing subject. Yet, according to Simon Lumsden, this animosity is rooted in a fundamental misunderstanding of Hegel?s thought, and resolving this tension can not only heal the rift between... more...

  • Idiome der Wahrheitby Nikola Mirkovic; Dennis J. Schmidt

    Vittorio Klostermann 2014; US$ 93.67

    ?Das Leben ist diesig, es nebelt sich immer wieder ein.? Mit diesen Worten umschrieb Heidegger einmal die Erfahrung, dass sich das Dasein nie vollständig erforschen lässt. Das Verstehen vollzieht sich in einer Bewegung, in der die Entdeckung von Strukturen notwendig mit ihrer Verbergung zusammengeht. Die Philosophie muss daher auch Bereiche berücksichtigen,... more...

  • Wissens-Ordnungenby Nicola Gess; Sandra Janßen

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 140.00

    This collection aims to contribute to current discussion on the relationship between literature and knowledge, and attempts to develop a historical epistemology of literature. The aim is not to determine the essential epistemological conditions of literature as such or those of a universalistic author-subject, but instead, to think about the historicity... more...

  • The Rational and the Socialby 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 Meadby 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...
