    Clarendon Press 2007; US$ 43.99

    Francois Recanati presents a ground-breaking study of the context-dependence of our language and thought.

  • Mental Files in Fluxby François Recanati

    OUP Oxford 2016; US$ 49.99

  • Strong Feelingsby Jon Elster; Francois Recanati

    The MIT Press 2009; US$ 21.99

    Emotion and addiction lie on a continuum between simple visceral drives such as hunger, thirst, and sexual desire at one end and calm, rational decision making at the other.
