    Thom Brooks (2016). Becoming British: UK Citizenship Examined. Biteback.
    From Syrian asylum seekers to super-rich foreign investors, immigration is one of the most controversial issues facing Britain today. Politicians kick the subject from one election to the next with energetic but ineffectual promises to ‘crack down’, while newspaper editors plaster it across front pages. -/- But few know the truth behind the headlines; indeed, the almost daily changes to our complex immigration laws pile up so quickly that even the officials in charge struggle to keep up. -/- In this (...)

    Anthony Vincent Fernandez (2016). Phenomenology and the Crisis of Contemporary Psychiatry: Contingency, Naturalism, and Classification. Dissertation, University of South Florida
    This dissertation is a contribution to the contemporary field of phenomenological psychopathology, or the phenomenological study of psychiatric disorders. The work proceeds with two major aims. The first is to show how a phenomenological approach can clarify and illuminate the nature of psychopathology—specifically those conditions typically labeled as major depressive disorder and bipolar disorder. The second is to show how engaging with psychopathological conditions can challenge and undermine many phenomenological presuppositions, especially phenomenology’s status as a transcendental philosophy and its corresponding (...)

    Christine Tappolet (2016). Emotions, Values, and Agency. Oxford University Press.
    The emotions we experience are crucial to who we are, to what we think, and to what we do. But what are emotions, exactly, and how do they relate to agency? The aim of this book is to spell out an account of emotions, which is grounded on analogies between emotions and sensory experiences, and to explore the implications of this account for our understanding of human agency. The central claim is that emotions consist in perceptual experiences of values, such (...)

    Nicola Mößner & Alfred Nordmann (forthcoming). Reasoning in Measurement. Routledge.
    This collection offers a new understanding of the epistemology of measurement. The interdisciplinary volume explores how measurements are produced, for example, in astronomy and seismology, in studies of human sexuality and ecology, in brain imaging and intelligence testing. It considers photography as a measurement technology and Henry David Thoreau's poetic measures as closing the gap between mind and world. -/- By focusing on measurements as the hard-won results of conceptual as well as technical operations the authors of the book no (...)

    Michael Brodrick (2015). The Ethics of Detachment in Santayana's Philosophy. Palgrave Macmillan.
    Knowing that we are finite, how can we live to the fullest? Spanish/American philosopher George Santayana described a special kind of transcendence or "spirituality" that enables us to fully enjoy the present moment, regardless of our limited existence. This book clarifies and extends Santayana's account of spirituality, while suggesting how the detachment of spirituality can relieve human suffering, enrich our lives, and make us better human beings.

  2. Melinda Hall (forthcoming). The Bioethics of Enhancement: Transhumanism, Disability, and Biopolitics. Lexington Books.
    In a critical intervention into the bioethics debate over human enhancement, philosopher Melinda Hall tackles the claim that the expansion and development of human capacities is a moral obligation. Hall draws on French philosopher Michel Foucault to reveal and challenge the ways disability is central to the conversation. The Bioethics of Enhancement includes a close reading and analysis of the last century of enhancement thinking and contemporary transhumanist thinkers, the strongest promoters of the obligation to pursue enhancement technology. With specific (...)

  4. Dennis Schulting (forthcoming). Kant's Radical Subjectivism. Perspectives on the Transcendental Deduction. Palgrave Macmillan.
    In this book, Dennis Schulting presents a staunch defence of Kant’s radical subjectivism about the possibility of knowledge. This defence is mounted by means of a comprehensive analysis of what is arguably the centerpiece of Kant’s "Critique of Pure Reason", namely, the Transcendental Deduction of the Categories. Radical subjectivism about the possibility of knowledge is to be understood as the thesis that the possibility of knowledge of objects essentially and wholly depends on subjective functions of thought, or the capacity to (...)

    Richard Oxenberg, God, Goodness, and Evil: A Theological Dialogue.
    Can a rational religious faith be maintained in a world full of evils? In this theological dialogue two characters, the skeptical Simon and the man of faith, Joseph, grapple with this question. What follows is a wide-ranging conversation touching on the nature and meaning of morality, God, revelation, the Bible, evil, and the viability of faith itself.
