  • Phenomenological Realism Versus Scientific Realismby Javier Cumpa; Erwin Tegtmeier

    De Gruyter 2009; US$ 112.00

    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.

  • Modelling Metaphysicsby Uwe Meixner

    De Gruyter 2009; US$ 126.00

    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...

    Lassen die modernen Neurowissenschaften von Begriffen wie Bewusstsein, Emotion und Handlungsfreiheit am Ende nichts mehr übrig? Was ist die Natur des Menschen? Wie frei sind wir?

  • Embodiment ? ein innovatives Konzept für Entwicklungsforschung und Psychoanalyseby Marianne Leuzinger-Bohleber; Robert N. Emde; Rolf Pfeifer

    Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht 2013; US$ 22.70

    Das Embodiment-Konzept stellt die bisherige Diskussion in der Psychoanalyse gemäß dem Leitsatz »Die Seele im Körper entdecken« auf den Kopf: Es geht nicht mehr nur um das Entschlüsseln der Körpersprache, sondern um die Einsicht, dass der Körper an allen seelischen Prozessen, an Gefühlen, Gedanken, Erinnerungen, kausal beteiligt ist. Dies ist eine radikal... more...

  • Why Philosophizeby Jean-Francois Lyotard

    Wiley 2013; US$ 12.95

    Why Philosophize? is a series of lectures given by Jean-François Lyotard to students at the Sorbonne embarking on their university studies.

  • Thought Experimentby Tamar Szabo Gendler

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 175.00

    This book offers a novel analysis of the widely-used but ill-understood technique of thought experiment. The author argues that the powers and limits of this methodology can be traced to the fact that when the contemplation of an imaginary scenario brings us to new knowledge, it does so by forcing us to make sense of exceptional cases. more...

  • Metastasis and Metastabilityby Kane X. Faucher

    Springer 2013; US$ 49.99

    The word "information" carries a number of connotations depending on context, and can be said to be one of the most problematic words to define despite many efforts by statistical theorists, mathematicians, physicists, cyberneticians, communication theorists, computer scientists, and philosophers. Is information physical or non-physical?... more...
