General philosophical works

  • A Prioriby Edwin Mares

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 29.95

    In recent years many influential philosophers have advocated that philosophy is an a priori science. Yet very few epistemology textbooks discuss a priori knowledge at any length, focusing instead on empirical knowledge and empirical justification. As a priori knowledge has moved centre stage, the literature remains either too technical or too out of... more...

  • Humeby H. W. Noonan

    Oneworld Publications 2014; US$ 14.95

    The father of modern scepticism and perhaps the most important English philosopher, Hume was lauded within his own lifetime as a pivotal figure of the Enlightenment. His 'naturalist' approach to a wide variety of philosophical topics resulted in highly original theories of perception, personal identity, causation, politics, morality, and religion,... more...

  • Einführung in die Erkenntnistheorieby Gerhard Ernst

    WBG - Wissenschaftliche Buchgesellschaft 2014; US$ 15.94

    Dieser Band führt umfassend in die Probleme der Erkenntnistheorie ein. Dabei stehen zwei Fragen im Mittelpunkt: 1. Was können wir wissen? 2. Was ist Wissen? Die erste Frage stellt sich in Anbetracht der Herausforderung durch den Skeptiker, der uns (so gut wie) alles Wissen abspricht. Die zweite Frage ergibt sich aus dem Versuch, die erste Frage zu... more...

  • Being as Communionby William A. Dembski

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2014; US$ 34.95

    In Being as Communion philosopher and mathematician William Dembski provides a non-technical overview of his work on information. Dembski attempts to make good on the promise of John Wheeler, Paul Davies, and others that information is poised to replace matter as the primary stuff of reality. With profound implications for theology and metaphysics,... more...

  • Hopeby Stan van Hooft

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 18.95

    From the now iconic Barack Obama 'Hope' poster of the 2008 presidential campaign to the pit-head 'Camp Hope' of the families of the trapped Chilean miners, the language of hope can be hugely powerful as it draws on resources that are uniquely human and universal. We are beings who hope. But what does that say about us? What is hope and what role does... more...

  • Riddles of Existenceby Earl Conee; Theodore Sider

    Oxford University Press 2014; US$ 24.99

    Riddles of Existence makes metaphysics genuinely accessible, even fun. Its lively, informal style brings the riddles to life and shows how stimulating they can be to think about. No philosophical background is required to enjoy this book. It is ideal for beginning students. Anyone wanting to think about life's most profound questions will find... more...

  • Synaesthesia and the Ancient Sensesby Shane Butler; Alex Purves

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 29.95

    Like us, the ancient Greeks and Romans came to know and understand the world through their senses. Yet sensory experience has rarely been considered in the study of antiquity and, when the senses are examined, sight is regularly privileged. 'Synaesthesia and the Ancient Senses' presents a radical reappraisal of antiquity's textures, flavours, and aromas,... more...

  • Wissen ist keine Gluckssacheby Wilfried H. Lindenzweig

    Wiley 2014; US$ 21.95

    Warum haben Medikamente Nebenwirkungen? Wie gefährlich ist Strahlung? Wieso können wir mit einer wertlosen Plastikkarte Dinge bezahlen? Wie könnten Außerirdische aussehen? Diesen und vielen weiteren Fragen widmet sich Wilfried Lindenzweig aus Sicht des Naturwissenschaftlers. more...

  • Self-Consciousness and the Critique of the Subjectby Simon Lumsden

    Columbia University Press 2014; US$ 44.99

    Poststructuralists hold Hegel responsible for giving rise to many of modern philosophy?s problematic concepts—the authority of reason, self-consciousness, the knowing subject. Yet, according to Simon Lumsden, this animosity is rooted in a fundamental misunderstanding of Hegel?s thought, and resolving this tension can not only heal the rift between... more...

  • Idiome der Wahrheitby Nikola Mirkovic; Dennis J. Schmidt

    Vittorio Klostermann 2014; US$ 94.64

    ?Das Leben ist diesig, es nebelt sich immer wieder ein.? Mit diesen Worten umschrieb Heidegger einmal die Erfahrung, dass sich das Dasein nie vollständig erforschen lässt. Das Verstehen vollzieht sich in einer Bewegung, in der die Entdeckung von Strukturen notwendig mit ihrer Verbergung zusammengeht. Die Philosophie muss daher auch Bereiche berücksichtigen,... more...
