  • Theory of Identitiesby François Laruelle; Alyosha Edlebi

    Columbia University Press 2016; US$ 34.99

    François Laruelle proposes a theory of identity rooted in scientific notions of symmetry and chaos, emancipating thought from the philosophical paradigm of Being and reconnecting it with the real world. Unlike most contemporary philosophers, Laruelle does not believe language, history, and the world shape identity but that identity determines our... more...

  • Values and the Reflective Point of Viewby Robert Dunn

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    Values are inescapable. They pervade and shape our psychology, our agency, and our lives as reflective and self-knowing subjects. This book explores the crucial ways in which values figure within reflection and thereby shape our theoretical and practical lives, against the backdrop of an expressivist moral psychology that is sensitive to the vicissitudes... more...

  • The Possibility of Discussionby Hugo Strandberg

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    Answering the question 'How is fruitful discussion possible?', this book addresses the central philosophical issue of how reason shall be understood and how it is limited. This study argues that the understanding of discussion according to which it necessarily starts from putative universal norms and rules for argumentation is problematic, among other... more...

  • Transparent Mindsby Jordi Fernández

    OUP Oxford 2013; US$ 69.99

    How do we know our current states of mind—what we want, and believe in? Jordi Fernández proposes a new theory of self-knowledge, challenging the traditional view that it is a matter of introspection. He argues that we know what we believe and desire by 'looking outward', towards the states of affairs which those beliefs and desires are about. more...

  • Between Probability and Certaintyby Martin Smith

    OUP Oxford 2016; US$ 72.99

    Martin Smith explores the question of what it takes for a belief to be justified or rational. He argues that in order to have justification for believing a proposition, one's evidence must normically support it—roughly, one's evidence must make the falsity of that proposition abnormal in the sense of calling for special, independent explanation. more...

  • Ad Infinitumby John Turri; Peter D. Klein

    OUP Oxford 2014; US$ 64.99

    This volume presents new work on infinitism, the view that there are no foundational reasons for beliefs—an ancient view in epistemology, now growing again in popularity. Leading epistemologists illuminate its strengths and weaknesses, and address questions new and old about justification, reasoning, responsibility, disagreement, and trust. more...

  • Simulating Mindsby Alvin I. Goldman

    Oxford University Press 2006; US$ 22.99

    People are minded creatures; we have thoughts, feelings and emotions. More intriguingly, we grasp our own mental states, and conduct the business of ascribing them to ourselves and others without instruction in formal psychology. How do we do this? And what are the dimensions of our grasp of the mental realm? In this book, Alvin I. Goldman explores... more...

  • Testimony, Trust, and Authorityby Benjamin McMyler

    Oxford University Press 2011; US$ 74.99

    Testimony, Trust, and Authority develops and defends an interpersonal theory of testimony according to which a speaker's testimony provides an audience with a distinctively second-personal reason for belief. more...
