  • Nothing Mattersby Ronald Green

    John Hunt Publishing 2011; US$ 13.99

    Is nothing everything? As strange as that question looks at first sight, it will definitely make sense after reading NOTHING MATTERS. Provocative and accessible, free of jargon, NOTHING MATTERS shows that there is more to nothing than meets the eye. History, the arts, philosophy, politics, religion, cosmology - all are touched by nothing. Who, for... more...

  • Panpsychismby Peter Ells

    John Hunt Publishing 2011; US$ 16.99

    Materialism asserts that the universe and everything within it, including ourselves, is a deterministic machine, trapped until the end of time on the rigid tracks of inviolable laws. Only the mechanisms of physics - forces, electrical charges, and so on - are consequential; nothing else matters. Experiences, such as the taste of honey, feelings, thoughts,... more...

  • Guerrilla Metaphysicsby Graham Harman

    Open Court 2011; US$ 34.99

In this provocative work, Graham Harman expands the discussion from his previous... more...

    University of Minnesota Press 2010; US$ 40.00 US$ 34.00

    Jean-Francois Lyotard is recognized as one of the most significant French philosophers of the twentieth century.

  • Beyond Physicalismby Daniel D. Hutto

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2000; US$ 108.00

    Unlike standard attempts to address the so-called ‘hard problem’ of consciousness, which assume our understanding of consciousness is unproblematic, this book begins by focusing on phenomenology and is devoted to clarifying the relations between intentionality, propositional content and experience. In particular, it argues that the subjectivity... more...

  • The Subject of Modernityby Anthony J. Cascardi

    Cambridge University Press 1992; US$ 29.00

    The question of modernity has provoked a vigorous debate in the work of thinkers from Hegel to Habermas.

Offering an historical account of the origins and transformations of the... more...

  • Personby Michael Quante

    De Gruyter 2012; US$ 28.00

    Philosophie ist der Versuch, durch überzeugendes und durchsichtiges Argumentieren bestimmte Fragen zu lösen.
