  • Klugeby Gary Marcus

    Houghton Mifflin Harcourt 2009; US$ 13.40

    Are we “noble in reason”? Perfect, in God’s image? Far from it, says New York University psychologist Gary Marcus. In this lucid and revealing book, Marcus argues that the mind is not an elegantly designed organ but rather a “kluge,” a clumsy, cobbled-together contraption. He unveils a fundamentally new way of looking at the human mind -- think duct... more...

  • How Can I Be Trusted?by Nancy Nyquist Potter

    Rowman & Littlefield Publishers 2002; US$ 39.00

    This work examines the concept of trust in the light of virtue theory, and takes our responsibility to be trustworthy as central.

Her work illustrates that relations of trust are never independent from considerations of power, and that asking... more...

  • Kreativitätby Simone Mahrenholz

    De Gruyter 2012; US$ 83.99

    „Kreativität“ ist ein sehr junger Begriff und ein sehr altes Phänomen. Sie gilt als unaufklärbares Rätsel, als eine Art „Black Box“ des Denkens. Dem kollektiven Bewußtsein zufolge ist sie etwas Rares, Flüchtiges, strapaziös zu erzielen und nur wenige Glückliche begünstigend. Das vorliegende Buch präsentiert eine logische Grundidee zur... more...

  • Reconfiguring Truthby Steven C. Ward

    Rowman & Littlefield Publishers 1996; US$ 36.00

    This refreshingly original book links the postmodern critique of notions such as 'reality' and 'truth' with approaches to knowledge found in science and technology studies (STS), a field also discontent with traditional epistemology. Exploring STS approaches to knowledge, such as actor-network theory, Ward forges a path through the impasse of the modernism... more...
