  • Imagination and Social Perspectivesby Michela Summa; Thomas Fuchs; Luca Vanzago

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 54.95

    Our experience of other individuals as minded beings goes hand in hand with the awareness that they have a unique epistemic and emotional perspective on the experienced objects and situations.

  • What Is Philosophy?by Giorgio Agamben; Lorenzo Chiesa

    Stanford University Press 2017; US$ 18.95

    In attempting to answer the question posed by this book's title, Giorgio Agamben does not address the idea of philosophy itself. Rather, he turns to the apparently most insignificant of its components: the phonemes, letters, syllables, and words that come together to make up the phrases and ideas of philosophical discourse. A summa, of sorts, of Agamben's... more...

  • Empathyby Vanessa Lux; Sigrid Weigel

    Palgrave Macmillan UK 2017; US$ 94.29

    This book digs into the complex archaeology of empathy illuminating controversies, epistemic problems and unanswered questions encapsulated within its cross-disciplinary history.

  • Phenomenology, Naturalism and Scienceby Jack Reynolds

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 54.95

    Arguing for the compatibility of phenomenology and naturalism, this book also refashions each. The opening chapters begin with a methodological focus, which seeks to curb the "over-bidding" characteristic of both traditional transcendental phenomenology and scientific naturalism. Having thus opened up the possibility that the twain might meet, it... more...
