  • Action and Existenceby Dr James Swindal

    Palgrave Macmillan 2011; US$ 100.00

    Since the pioneering work of Donald Davidson on action, many philosophers have taken critical stances on his causal account. This book criticizes Davidson's event-causal view of action, and offers instead an agent causal view both to describe what an action is and to set a framework for how actions are explained. more...

  • Action and Responsibilityby Andrew Sneddon

    Springer Netherlands 2006; US$ 153.54

    This book is an exploration of what it takes for an event to count as an action. I first became interested in this topic nearly a decade ago while working on a different topic. I kept coming across philosophers making claims about the nature of action that seemed false or at least dubious to me. As a consequence I turned to the philosophy of action... more...

  • Action in Contextby Anton Leist

    De Gruyter 2007; US$ 154.00

    The book illustrates the concept of action in three different contexts - the justification of actions, people's life history, and pragmatism. The special feature of this book is that a comprehensive view of this kind marks a departure from the atomistic approach of action theory, which in itself raises a number of questions. If actions are... more...

  • After Postmodernismby Dr Jan Faye

    Palgrave Macmillan 2011; US$ 100.00

    The philosophy of the humanistic sciences has been a blind-spot in analytic philosophy. This book argues that by adopting an appropriate pragmatic analysis of explanation and interpretation it is possible to show that scientific practice of humanistic sciences can be understood on similar lines to scientific practice of natural and social sciences. more...

  • Against Theory of Mindby Professor Ivan Leudar; Professor Alan Costall

    Palgrave Macmillan 2009; US$ 37.00

    The 'theory of mind' framework has been the fastest growing body of empirical research in contemporary psychology. It has given rise to a range of positions on what it takes to relate to others as intentional beings. This book brings together disparate strands of ToM research, lays out historical roots of the idea and indicates better alternatives. more...

  • Ageing, Gender, Embodiment and Danceby Elisabeth Schwaiger

    Palgrave Macmillan 2011; US$ 100.00

    This book explores the nexus between gender, ageing and culture in dancers practicing a variety of genres.
