  • Erkendelseby David Favrholdt

    Aarhus University Press 2008; US$ 19.88

    Der er langt fra stenaldermanden til Niels Bohr, men ikke kun målt i tid. Menneskets erkendelse har med en svimlende hast ændret sig helt grundlæggende: I dag ved vi meget mere, end at æbler kan spises, og hvordan man laver en spydspids ? vi ved nu også, hvorfor is kan blive til vand, og hvorfor atomet er stabilt. Erkendelsen har udviklet sig fra viden... more...

  • Das Leib-Seele-Problem und die Metaphysik des Materiellenby Bernd Waß

    De Gruyter 2013; US$ 131.86

    Das Leib-Seele-Problem lässt sich im Rahmen der klassischen ontologischen Positionen - Materialismus, Dualismus, Idealismus - nicht befriedigend lösen. Es wird das Verhältnis zwischen Außen- und Bewusstseinswirklichkeit falsch aufgefasst, was zu einer falschen Konzeption der ontologischen Grundstruktur des Wirklichen Anlass gibt. Das Kernproblem... more...

  • Unorthodox Humeanismby Georg Sparber

    De Gruyter 2009; US$ 120.86

    The book discusses contemporary metaphysics of science and deals with the central question which ontology fits best with our knowledge of the world. Two competing positions in today's metaphysics of science are analysed: Humeanism and dispositionalism. There are physical and metaphysical arguments to show that orthodox Humeanism is in... more...

  • The Metaphysics of Extrinsic Propertiesby Vera Hoffmann-Kolss

    De Gruyter 2010; US$ 120.86

Various accounts of the intrinsic/extrinsic distinction are analysed in detail, and it is argued that the most promising... more...

  • Phenomenological Realism Versus Scientific Realismby Javier Cumpa; Erwin Tegtmeier

    De Gruyter 2009; US$ 93.38

    The two eminent metaphysicians Armstrong and Grossmann exchanged letters for ten years in which they discussed crucial points of their respective ontologies. They have a common basis. Both do metaphysics proper and not linguistic philosophy. Both advocate universals and acknowledge the key position of the category of states of affairs.... more...

  • Modelling Metaphysicsby Uwe Meixner

    De Gruyter 2009; US$ 104.37

    This book models and simulates metaphysics by presenting the metaphysics of a model. The small size of the model makes it possible to treat metaphysical matters with a more than usual systematicity and comprehensiveness. In the mirror of sustained analogy, simulation-metaphysics offers a wealth of insights on the real thing: on the doctrines,... more...

  • Knowledge - Genetic Foundations and Epistemic Coherenceby Birte Schelling

    De Gruyter 2011; US$ 120.86

    Since the 1960s there is a controversial discussion about the correct explication of the concept of knowledge in epistemology, but until today no generally accepted solution to the problem of defining this concept has been found. This book contributes to the discussion in epistemology by proposing a new explication of the concept of knowledge... more...
