  • The Aconceptual Mindby Pauli Pylkkö

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1998; US$ 108.00

    According to Heidegger, naturalistic thinking is naive and unable to deal with its own essence and limitations. It can only serve the veiled interests of modern Western technology in its inherent inclination to attain global dominance. But these eight thematically intertwined essays face Heidegger?s critique of naturalistic thinking habits. The author... more...

  • Learning from Wordsby Jennifer Lackey

    OUP Oxford 2008; US$ 38.99 US$ 33.53

    Jennifer Lackey reshapes the vigorous current debate on testimony by showing that the standard view of the transmission of knowledge by testimony is fundamentally misguided. Her radical new theory holds that testimony is itself an irreducible source of new knowledge, to which both speaker and hearer contribute. more...

  • Discourse of Silenceby Dennis Kurzon

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 1998; US$ 149.00

    The book deals initially with the interpretation of the silent answer to a question. From a semiotic approach to the contrast between silence and speech mainly within a Greimasian framework, the discussion turns to the application of pragmatic tools such as conversational analysis and adjacency pairs to the interpretation of silence. A model is presented... more...

  • So Much, So Fast, So Little Time: Coming to Terms with Rapid Change and Its Consequencesby Michael St. Clair

    ABC-CLIO 2011; US$ 49.00

    Twenty-first-century technology opens up fabulous opportunities, but also changes how we relate to each other and warps our sense of time, reality, duty, and privacy. Technologies and time-saving devices make everything happen faster, with the result that we feel busier than ever before. "Free time" seems in danger of extinction. So Much, So Fast,... more...

  • Thinking about Knowingby Jay Rosenberg

    Clarendon Press 2002; US$ 114.99 US$ 98.89

    Jay Rosenberg offers a systematic philosophical theory of knowledge which is specifically responsive to the fact that we always engage the world from a particular perspective within it. It consequently calls into question in a fundamental way many received understandings regarding the relationships among the concepts of knowledge, belief, justification,... more...

  • The God of Metaphysicsby T. L. S. Sprigge

    Clarendon Press 2006; US$ 59.99 US$ 51.59

    Can philosophy offer reasonable grounds for the existence of a God (or Absolute) possessing genuine (even if not orthodox) religious significance and not proposed simply as the solution to a purely intellectual philosophical problem? Timothy Sprigge offers a fascinating exploration of the metaphysical systems of a diverse range of philosophers, from... more...

    Die innerchinesische Auseinandersetzung mit Modellen der Internationalen Beziehungen und die Konzeption alternativer Ordnungsvorstellungen sind in der westlichsprachigen Literatur bislang noch nicht aufgearbeitet worden. Damit schließt das Buch eine Lücke im Bereich der IB-Forschung, die sich bislang weitgehend auf westliche Modellentwürfe beschränkt,... more...

    VS Verlag für Sozialwissenschaften 2010; US$ 44.99

    Identität ist in der Moderne kein Geschenk, sondern eine Aufgabe. Die andauernde Debatte im Alltag und in den Wissenschaften zeigt, dass diese Aufgabe noch immer nicht leicht zu bewältigen ist, denn Identität muss immer noch aufgebaut, bewahrt und verteidigt werden. Der Band umfasst die wichtigsten Beiträge der Debatte um Identität im 20. Jahrhundert... more...

  • Travelling Conceptsby Christian Lammert; Katja Sarkowsky

    VS Verlag für Sozialwissenschaften 2009; US$ 109.00

    Bhikhu Parekh As creative and reflective agents, human beings seek meaning in their lives, and develop more or less coherent views of the world or cultures in terms of which to organize their personal and collective lives.
