  • The Roots of Reasonby

    Oxford University Press, UK 2006; US$ 44.99

    David Papineau presents a controversial view of human reason, portraying it as a normal part of the natural world, and drawing on the empirical sciences to illuminate its workings.

  • Death and Desire in Hegel, Heidegger and Deleuzeby Brent Adkins

    Edinburgh University Press 2007; US$ 109.45

    Despite what its title might suggest, Death and Desire is a meditation on life. Using the texts of Hegel, Heidegger, and Deleuze, the author argues that philosophy has been dominated by a form of thought that focuses exclusively on death. The importance of Death & Desire lies in its refusal of the morbidity of much contemporary philosophy. Its uniqueness... more...

  • 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. It explains how culture evolved out of nature and how it became “anti-natural”. The remedy is seen in the global biophilous reconstruction of culture. The value of the “live planet”... more...

  • Für uns gestorbenby Michaela Albrecht

    Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht 2007; US$ 45.03

  • Aristotle's Laptopby Igor Aleksander; Helen Morton

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2012; US$ 111.00

    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$ 26.99

    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...
