  • The Problem Is the Solutionby Marcella Bakur Weiner; Mark B. Simmons

    Jason Aronson, Inc. 2009; US$ 78.00

    Weiner and Simmons show us how to rely on the natural, spontaneous images that emerge from our dreams, daily life, relationship problems, and symptoms as the seeds of our own healing. We must recognize that our problems have not been randomly inflicted on us; they have a purpose, to act as guideposts pointing the way toward healing and wholeness. more...

  • Menschliches Lebenby Sebastian Knell; Marcel Weber

    De Gruyter 2009; US$ 42.00

    Dieser Band betrachtet das menschliche Leben aus drei Perspektiven, die alle mit seiner zeitlichen Begrenztheit verknüpft sind: Erstens wird untersucht, worin die zeitliche Einheit eines menschlichen Lebens besteht, wo genau es beginnt und wo es endet.

  • Meaning in Life and Why It Mattersby Susan Wolf; John Koethe; Robert M. Adams; Nomy Arpaly; Jonathan Haidt; Stephen Macedo

    Princeton University Press 2010; US$ 22.95 US$ 20.88

    Most people, including philosophers, tend to classify human motives as falling into one of two categories: the egoistic or the altruistic, the self-interested or the moral. According to Susan Wolf, however, much of what motivates us does not comfortably fit into this scheme. Often we act neither for our own sake nor out of duty or an impersonal concern... more...

  • Self-Construction and the Formation of Human Values: Truth, Language, and Desireby Teodros Kiros

    ABC-CLIO 2001; US$ 35.00

    This volume presents a theoretical defense of the potential of ordinary individuals to construct values and through them to become self-empowering, responsible participants in a democratic community. Rather than conceiving of power as domination, the author identifies true power as self-empowerment, a notion based on self-construction. He proposes... more...

  • The Semantics and Metaphysics of Natural Kindsby Helen Beebee; Nigel Sabbarton-Leary

    Taylor and Francis 2010; US$ 54.95

    Essentialism--roughly, the view that natural kinds have discrete essences, generating truths that are necessary but knowable only a posteriori --is an increasingly popular view in the metaphysics of science. At the same time, philosophers of language have been subjecting Kripke’s views about the existence and scope of the necessary a posteriori... more...

    Eternity and Me by Allan Kellehear is a work that stimulates one to take stock of one's life and reassess values and ideals.

  • Conceptual Atomism and the Computational Theory of Mindby John-Michael Kuczynski

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2007; US$ 173.00

    What is it to have a concept? What is it to make an inference? What is it to be rational? On the basis of recent developments in semantics, a number of authors have embraced answers to these questions that have radically counterintuitive consequences, for example: • One can rationally accept self-contradictory propositions (e.g. Smith is a composer... more...
