  • Phenomenological Realism Versus Scientific Realismby Javier Cumpa; Erwin Tegtmeier

    De Gruyter 2009; US$ 105.00

    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$ 119.00

    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, the methods,... more...

    Felix Meiner Verlag 2005; US$ 21.59

    Hauptbeschreibung Die hier zusammengestellten frühen Schriften enthalten viele der Leitmotive, die Carnaps Philosophie insgesamt bestimmen: Was später in besser abgesicherter und oft schwerfälligerer Formulierung vorgetragen wurde, findet sich hier in seiner ursprünglichen und riskanteren Form. Die in diesem Buch zusammengefaßten Schriften können... more...
