(H/B) A HISTORY OF PHILOSOPHY IN AMERICA
(2-VOLUME SET)
Εκδότης: HACKETT
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1826-0038

In a book as long as this one, there is considerable danger that one may become lost among the trees and never find the forest. It may therefore be helpful to the reader to have a preliminary indication of some of our major findings. Surveying the career of philosophy in America, perhaps the most striking characteristic of this history is the complexity and intimacy of the relationships among science, religion, and philosophy. So complex and so intimate have been these ties that it is often unclear what if any distinction can be made among...

(H/B) JOURNALS AND NOTEBOOKS (VOLUME 1)
JOURNALS AA-DD
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3244-0014

«I would like to write a novel in which the main character would be a man who got a pair of glasses, one lens of which reduced images as powerfully as an oxyhydrogen microscope, and the other of which magnified on the same scale, so that he perceived everything relatively.» A flight of fancy by an aspiring science fiction writer? While it may sound as such, this wistful musing is one of the little-discussed personal reflections of nineteenth-century philosopher Soren Kierkegaard, whose remarkable journals and notebooks, unpublished during ...

(P/B) FORMALISM AND MARXISM
Εκδότης: ROUTLEDGE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3707-0201

Russian Formalism and Marxist criticism had a seismic impact on twentieth-century literary theory. First published in 1979, Tony Bennett's Formalism and Marxism offered a ground-breaking new interpretation of the Formalists' achievements and demanded a new way forward in Marxist criticism. Placing the work of key figures in context and addressing such issues as aesthetics, linguistics and the category of literature, form and function or literary evolution, Bennett argues that the Formalists' concerns provided the basis for a radically hist...

(P/B) LATE KANT
TOWARDS ANOTHER LAW OF THE EARTH
Εκδότης: ROUTLEDGE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3707-0341

Immanuel Kant spent many of his younger years working on what are generally considered his masterpieces: the three Critiques. But his work did not stop there: in later life he began to reconsider subjects such as anthropology, and topics including colonialism, race and peace. In Late Kant, Peter Fenves becomes one of the first to thoroughly explore Kant's later writings and give them the detailed scholarly attention they deserve. In his opening chapters, Fenves examines in detail the various essays in which Kant invents, formulates and com...

(P/B) HABERMAS AND PRAGMATISM
Εκδότης: ROUTLEDGE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3707-1166

There are few living thinkers who have enjoyed the eminence and reown of J?rgen Hamermas.

This is the first collection dedicated to exploring the connections between his body of work ahd America's most significant philosophical movement, pragmatism. Habermas and Pragmatism considers the influence of pragmatism on Habermas's thought and the tensions between Habermasian social theory and pragmatism. Essays by distinguished prag...

(H/B) ENIGMAS OF AGENCY
STUDIES IN PHILOSOPHY OF HUMAN ACTION
Εκδότης: ROUTLEDGE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3707-1507

I hope these preliminary comments will anticipate several questions that might otherwise trouble a non-specialist reader of these studies of mine on action. The essays themselves demand no particular expertise; and the riddles which are treated in them are set out in sufficient detail to be understood by laymen. But still the general reader might be unsure about this collection as a whole, and want some background. He might ask: Just what are the leading issues about human agency that stir up philosophers nowadays? How did these issues dev...

(P/B) THE GIFT OF LANGUAGE
Εκδότης: CONTINUUM
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3966-0079

The Gift of Language starts with the assumption that proper names are not just conventional linguistic marks. They rather mark the singularity of language within language. Each time a proper name appears, language becomes other than a system of arbitrary signs. How are we to conceive of a name if it entails an experience of the singularity of language? This is a question raised by Adorno, Benjamin, Heidegger, and Rosenzweig. Their thoughts revolve around the language, forming a constellation that can be read as a configuration of the name....

(H/B) ABELARD AND HIS LEGACY
Εκδότης: ASHGATE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0363-0110

The literary achievements of Peter Abelard (1079-1142), in particular his logic and theology, form the subject of this volume. In the essays Dr Mews has challenged many traditional assumptions about Abelard's development as both a logician and as a theologian. He offers a new framework for understanding the chronology of his writings and argues that a number of texts that have been classified as compositions of Abelard's students, merit particular attention for what they reveal about the evolution of his own ideas, elaborated in the course...

(P/B) IS IT RAPE?
ON ACQUAINTANCE RAPE AND TAKING WOMEN'S CONSENT SERIOUSLY
Εκδότης: ASHGATE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0363-0129

The issue of acquaintance rape has been gaining increased prominence in recent years. In this book Joan McGregor analyses the ethical and legal problems that arise in connection with acquaintance rape cases. She discusses with great clarity and precision the complexities involved in notions such as consent, force, autonomy, power, intention and the impairment of responsibility through drugs, alcohol and mental illness. Arguing that criminal rape laws are too narrow, capturing only cases where there is clearly recognized physical violence a...

(P/B) TO RELISH THE SUBLIME?
CULTURE AND SELF-REALIZATION IN POSTMODERN TIMES
Εκδότης: VERSO BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0627-0035

More than 130 years on from Matthew Arnold's pronouncement that human beings "must be compelled to relish the sublime", education in the humanities still relies on a more or less Arnoldian ideal of "culture" as the means of intellectual development. In this distinctive and original work, Martin Ryle and Kate Soper reflect critically on this enduring ideal, exploring the tensions and contradictions between it and the contemporary world of work, pleasure and consumption.

"People are dangerous. If they're able to involve themselves in issues that matter, they may change the distribution of power, to the detriment of those who are rich and privileged." --Noam Chomsky Noam Chomsky has been praised by the likes of Bono and Hugo Chavez and attacked by the likes of Tom Wolfe and Alan Dershowitz. Groundbreaking linguist and outspoken political dissenter - voted "most important public intellectual in the world today" in a 2005 magazine poll - Chomsky inspires fanatical devotion and fierce vituperation.

(H/B) HUME VARIATIONS
Εκδότης: CLARENDON PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3876-0018

Hume? Yes, David Hume, that's who Jerry Fodor looks to for help in advancing our understanding of the mind. Fodor claims his Treatise of Human Nature as the foundational document of cognitive science: it launched the project of constructing an empirical psychology on the basis of a representational theory of mind. Going back to this work after more than 250 years we find that Hume is remarkably perceptive about the components and structure that a theory of mind requires. Careful study of the Treatise helps us to see what's amiss with much ...

(P/B) THE METAPHYSICS OF LOVE - GENDER & TRANSCENDENCE IN LEVINA
Εκδότης: CONTINUUM
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3966-0172

Levinas's place in the popular philosophical imagination can be summed up in the phrase 'ethics as first philosophy'. In the Anglo-American philosophical world Levinas is best known for having reintroduced the question of ethics into the so-called 'Continental' philosophical tradition. Furthermore, it is through Levinas's profound yet often hidden influence that the 'Other' has become one of the key concepts in much contemporary work, not only in philosophy but also, for example, in feminist and postcolonial theory. However, the main thesi...

(P/B) LIARS AND HEAPS
NEW ESSAYS ON PARADOX
Εκδότης: OXFORD UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3145-0472

Semantic and soritical paradoxes challenge entrenched, fundamental principles about language-principles about truth, denotation, quantification, and, among others, 'tolerance'. Study of the paradoxes helps us determine which logical principles are correct. So it is that they serve not only as a topic of philosophical inquiry but also as a constraint on such inquiry: they often dictate the semantic and logical limits of discourse in general. Sixteen specially written essays by leading figures in the field offer new thoughts and arguments ab...

(P/B) MATCHBOOK
ESSAYS IN DECONSTRUCTION
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3713-0024

Matchbook consists of nine essays written around, or in response to, work published by Jacques Derrida since 1980. The focal point of the essays is the "Envois," which forms part of The Post Card (published in 1980 in French). Particular attention is paid to how that text articulates with the ethical and political emphases of Derrida's more recent work, but also to its autobiographical conceit. The "incendiary" reference of the book's title underscores deconstruction's engagement with questions of reading: relations between (slow) reading ...
