  • Reference and Existenceby Saul A. Kripke

    Oxford University Press 2013; US$ 34.99

    This work can be read as a sequel to Kripke's classic Naming and Necessity , confronting important issues left open in that work and developing a novel approach to questions concerning empty names and existence. It provides along the way novel treatments of fictional and mythological discourse, the pragmatics of definite and indefinite descriptions... more...

  • Descartes on Causationby Tad M. Schmaltz

    Oxford University Press 2007; US$ 32.99

    This book is a systematic study of Descartes' theory of causation and its relation to the medieval and early modern scholastic philosophy that provides its proper historical context. The argument presented here is that even though Descartes offered a dualistic ontology that differs radically from what we find in scholasticism, his views on causation... more...

  • Seeing Dark Thingsby Roy Sorensen

    Oxford University Press 2008; US$ 29.99

    Roy Sorensen here defends the causal theory of perception by treating absences as causes. He draws heavily on common sense and psychology to vindicate the assumption that we directly perceive absences. more...

  • Oxford Studies in Metaphysics, Volume 9by Karen Bennett; Dean W. Zimmerman

    OUP Oxford 2015; US$ 35.99

    Oxford Studies in Metaphysics is the forum for the best new work in this flourishing field. Much of the most interesting work in philosophy today is metaphysical in character: this series is a much-needed focus for it. more...

  • The Concept 'Horse' Paradox and Wittgensteinian Conceptual Investigationsby Kelly Dean Jolley

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    In The Foundations of Arithmetic, Gottlob Frege contended that the difference between concepts and objects was absolute. He meant that no object could be a concept and no concept an object. Benno Kerry disagreed; he contended that a concept could be an object, and that therefore the difference between concepts and objects was only relative. In this... more...

  • Meta-metaphysicsby Jiri Benovsky

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 103.92

    Metaphysical theories are beautiful. At the end of this book, Jiri Benovsky defends the view that metaphysical theories possess aesthetic properties and that these play a crucial role when it comes to theory evaluation and theory choice. Before we get there, the philosophical path the author proposes to follow starts with three discussions of metaphysical... more...

  • Teile und Teilhabeby Christoph Hochholzer

    De Gruyter 2016; US$ 182.00

    Sind platonische Ideen oder Formen wirklich in dem Sinn als „eingestaltig“ konzipiert, dass sie nicht aus Teilen bestehen können? Ganz und gar nicht! Christoph Hochholzer zeigt, dass die Relation von Teil und Ganzem einer Form neben der Relation der Teilhabe an Formen zu den zentralen Grundannahmen der Ideenlehre gehört. Von diesem Befund... more...

  • Dispositions and Causal Powersby Bruno Gnassounou; Max Kistler

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    Dispositions are everywhere. We say that a wall is hard, that water quenches thirst and is transparent, that dogs can swim and oak trees can let their leaves fall, and that acid has the power to corrode metals. All these statements express attributions of dispositions, be they physical, physiological or psychological, yet there is much philosophical... more...

  • A Metaphysics for the Mobby John Russell Roberts

    Oxford University Press 2007; US$ 79.99

    Contrary to popular opinion, there is a clear connection between Berkeley's philosophy and common sense. This connection, however, runs through that most maligned aspect of Berkeley's work, his view of spirits. To understand the former we must understand the latter. To this end, Roberts focuses on laying bare the core aspects of Berkeley's positive... more...

  • Method in Metaphysicsby Andrew Beards

    University of Toronto Press, Scholarly Publishing Division 2008; Not Available

    Andrew Beards shows how Lonergan's philosophy can help to clarify not only particular issues in current debates but also the larger question of a basic method. more...
