    Nicolai Hartmann's Possibility and Actuality is the second volume of a four-part investigation of ontology. It deals with such questions as: How do we know that something is really possible?

  • The Metaphysics and the Epistemology of Meaningby Jonas Pfister

    De Gruyter 2007; US$ 59.99

    The book develops the metaphysics of meaning along the lines set up by Paul Grice, defining the three central notions of what is meant, said and implicated.

While this book advances the idea that faith as a general... more...

  • An Ontology of Consciousnessby R. Ellis

    Springer Netherlands 2013; US$ 167.23

    The object of this study is to find a coherent theoretical approach to three problems which appear to interrelate in complex ways: (1) What is the ontological status of consciousness? (2) How can there be 'un­ conscious,' 'prereflective' or 'self-alienated' consciousness? And (3) Is there a 'self' or 'ego' formed by means of the interrelation of more... more...

  • Imagination and Reason in Plato, Aristotle, Vico, Rousseau and Keatsby J.J. Chambliss

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 91.97

    The present essay grew out of an inte:rest in exploring the relationship be­ tween "imagination" and "reason" in the history of naturalistic thinking.

This spirit is... more...
