  • Evolutionary Ontologyby Josef Aemajs

    Editions Rodopi 2008; US$ 64.40

    This book examines new concept of evolutionary ontology based on the idea of radically different “ontic orders” – natural and cultural being.

  • Aristotle's Laptopby Igor Aleksander; Helen Morton

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2012; US$ 76.00 US$ 69.16

    Aristotle's convincing philosophy is likely to have shaped (even indirectly) many of our current beliefs, prejudices and attitudes to life. This includes the way in which our mind (that is, our capacity to have private thoughts) appears to elude a scientific description. This book is about a scientific ingredient that was not available to Aristotle:... more...

  • The Politics of Our Selvesby Amy Allen

    Columbia University Press 2007; US$ 28.99

    Some critical theorists understand the self as constituted by power relations, while others insist upon the self's autonomous capacities for critical reflection and deliberate self-transformation. Up to now, it has all too often been assumed that these two understandings of the self are incompatible. In her bold new book, Amy Allen argues that the... more...

  • Von der mannigfachen Bedeutung des Seienden nach Aristotelesby Mauro Antonelli; Werner Sauer

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 196.00

    The notion of contradiction is of fundamental importance in several fields. It is a central topic in the history of ancient philosophy: the very beginning of philosophy in history seems to be closely connected to the discovery of contradictions in the Greek language. It is of crucial importance in metaphysics: Aristotle’s inquiry into... more...
