    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?

  • Against Coherenceby Erik J. Olsson

    Clarendon Press 2005; US$ 44.99

    It is tempting to think that, if a person's beliefs are coherent, they are also likely to be true. Indeed, this truth-conduciveness claim is the cornerstone of the popular coherence theory of knowledge and justification. Hitherto much confusion has been caused by the inability of coherence theorists to define their central concept. Nor have they... more...

  • Aiming at Truthby Dr Nicholas Unwin

    Palgrave Macmillan 2006; US$ 125.00

    This book argues that it is not obvious what we means by saying our beliefs and assertions are 'truth-directed'. Do we weaken our notion of a belief if we deal with radical scepticism without surrendering to idealism? This book defends a radically new 'ecological' model of knowledge, examining what might happen if we abandoned genuine belief. more...

  • Anfang und Ursprungby Emil Angehrn

    De Gruyter 2007; US$ 133.00

    The question of origins has occupied people of all cultures and epochs. In a particular way it determines the thinking of philosophy, which in its classical understanding is concerned with seeking out first causes and principles. In this, it follows on from the line of enquiry followed by myth, which in its turn gives an account of first... more...

  • Antifoundationalismby Tom Rockmore; Beth J. Singer

    Temple University Press 2009; US$ 74.50
