  1. Introduction to Logic and to the Methodology of the Deductive Sciences.Alfred Tarski - 1941 - Oxford University Press.
    Now in its fourth edition, this classic work clearly and concisely introduces the subject of logic and its applications. The first part of the book explains the basic concepts and principles which make up the elements of logic. The author demonstrates that these ideas are found in all branches of mathematics, and that logical laws are constantly applied in mathematical reasoning. The second part of the book shows the applications of logic in mathematical theory building with concrete examples that draw (...)
  2. English Philosophy in the Age of Locke.M. A. Stewart (ed.) - 2000 - Oxford University Press.
    Investigating key issues in English philosophical, political, and religious thought in the second half of the seventeenth century, this book presents a set of new and intriguing essays on the topics. Particular emphasis is given to the interaction between philosophy and religion among leading political thinkers of the period; connections between philosophical debate on personhood, certainty, and the foundations of faith; and new conceptions of biblical exegesis.
  3. Nature, Intelligibility, and Metaphysics.Hae Soo Pyun - 1972 - Amsterdam: Grüner.
  4. Philosophical Interpretations.Robert J. Fogelin - 1992 - Oxford University Press.
    Robert Fogelin here collects fifteen of his essays, organized around the theme of interpreting philosophical texts. The essays place particular emphasis on understanding the argumentative or dialectical role that passages play in the specific context in which they occur. The somewhat surprising result of taking this principle seriously is that certain traditional, well-worked texts are given a radical re-interpretation. Throughout the essays reprinted here, Fogelin argues that, when carefully read, the philosophical position under consideration has more merit than commonly believed. (...)
  5. Studies in Functional Logical Semiotics of Natural Language.Jerzy Pelc - 1971 - The Hague: Mouton.

Simon, a thinker widely regarded as one of the great teachers and philosophers of our time.

The six essays presented not only treat some major areas of Simon’s thought, pointing out their lucidity and originality, but (...)

  9. Let Me Explain.Pierre Teilhard de Chardin - 1970 - New York: Harper & Row.
  10. Pseudo-Problems: How Analytic Philosophy Gets Done.Roy A. Sorensen - 1993 - Routledge.
    In the twentieth century, philosophers tackled many of the philosophical problems of previous generations by dissolving them--attacking them as linguistic illusions and showing that the problems, when closely inspected, were not problems at all. Roy A. Sorensen takes the most important and interesting examples from one hundred years of analytic philosophy to consolidate a different theory of dissolution. Pseudo-Problems offers a fascinating alternative history of twentieth century analytic philosophy. It seeks to outline a unified account of dissolution that can consolidate (...)
  11. Foundational Studies: Selected Works.Andrzej Mostowski - 1979 - Sole Distributor for the U.S.A. And Canada, Elsevier North-Holland.

  14. The Moral Philosophy of T. H. Green.Geoffrey Thomas - 1987 - Oxford University Press.
    Examining Thomas Hill Green's moral philosophy, Thomas defends a radically new perception of Green as an independent thinker rather than a devoted partisan of Kant or Hegel. Green's moral philosophy, argues Thomas, includes a widely misunderstood defense of free will, an innovative model of deliberation that rejects both Kantian and Humean conceptions of practical reason, a barely recognized theory of character, and an account of moral objectivity that involves no dependence on religion--all of which yield a coherent body of moral (...)
  15. British Post-Structuralism.Antony Easthope - 1988 - Routledge.
  16. Utopias, Dolphins and Computers: Problems in Philosophical Plumbing.Mary Midgley - 1996 - Routledge.
    In Utopias, Dolphins and Computers Mary Midgley brings philosophy into the real world by using it to consider environmental, educational and gender issues. From "Freedom, Feminism and War" to "Artificial Intelligence and Creativity," this book searches for what is distorting our judgement and helps us to see more clearly the dramas which are unfolding in the world around us. Utopias, Dolphins and Computers aims to counter today's anti-intellectualism, not to mention philosophy's twentieth-century view of itself as futile. Mary Midgley explains (...)

  19. Love and its Place in Nature: A Philosophical Interpretation of Freudian Psychoanalysis.Jonathan Lear - 1990 - Yale University Press.
    In this brilliant book, Jonathan Lear argues that Freud posits love as a basic force in nature, one that makes individuation -- the condition for psychological health and development -- possible.

  24. Morality and Modernity.Ross Poole - 1991 - Routledge.
    Ross Poole displays the social content of the various conceptions of morality at work in contemporary society, and casts a strikingly fresh light on such fundamental problems as the place of reason in ethics, moral objectivity and the distinction between duty and virtue. The book provides a critical account of the moral theories of a number of major philosophers, including Kant, Marx, Nietzsche, Habermas, Rawls, Gewirth and MacIntyre. It also presents a systematic critique of three of the most significant responses (...)

  26. Letters, 1928-1946.Isaiah Berlin - 2004 - Cambridge University Press.
    Isaiah Berlin is one of the towering intellectual figures of the twentieth century, the most famous English thinker of the post-war era, and the focus of growing interest and discussion. Above all, he is one of the best modern exponents of the disappearing art of letter-writing. 'Life is not worth living unless one can be indiscreet to intimate friends,' wrote Berlin to a correspondent. This first volume inaugurates a long awaited edition of his letters that might well adopt this remark (...)

  33. The Logical Foundations of Bradley's Metaphysics: Judgment, Inference, and Truth.James Allard - 2004 - Cambridge University Press.
    This book is a major contribution to the study of the philosopher F. H. Bradley, the most influential member of the nineteenth-century school of British Idealists. It offers a sustained interpretation of Bradley's Principles of Logic, explaining the problem of how it is possible for inferences to be both valid and yet have conclusions that contain new information. The author then describes how this solution provides a basis for Bradley's metaphysical view that reality is one interconnected experience and how this (...)
  34. Essays on Henry Sidgwick.Bart Schultz (ed.) - 1992 - Cambridge University Press.
    The dominant moral philosophy of nineteenth-century Britain was utilitarianism, beginning with Bentham and ending with Sidgwick. Though once overshadowed by his immediate predecessors in that tradition, Sidgwick is now regarded as a figure of great importance in the history of moral philosophy. Indeed his masterpiece, The Methods of Ethics, has been described by John Rawls as the 'most philosophically profound' of the classical utilitarian works. In this volume a distinguished group of philosophers reassesses the full range of Sidgwick's work, not (...)

  36. Appearance Versus Reality: New Essays on Bradley's Metaphysics.Guy Stock (ed.) - 1998 - Oxford University Press.
    This book collects new studies of the work of F. H. Bradley, a leading British philosopher of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century, and one of the key figures in the emergence of Anglo-American analytic philosophy. Well-known contributors from Britain, North America, and Australia focus on Bradley's views on truth, knowledge, and reality. These essays contribute to the current re-evaluation of Bradley, showing that his work not only was crucial to the development of twentieth-century philosophy, but illuminates contemporary debates (...)
  37. The Greenian Moment: T.H. Green, Religion, and Political Argument in Victorian Briatin.Denys P. Leighton - 2004 - Imprint Academic.
    This book views Green's philosophical opus through his public life and political commitments. It demonstrates how his main ethical and political conceptions -- his idea of 'self realisation' and his theory of individuality within community -- were informed by evangelical theology, popular Protestantism and an idea of the English national consciousness as formed by religious conflict. While the significance of Kant and Hegel is acknowledged, it is argued that 'indigenous' qualities of Green's teachings resonated with Victorian Liberal values.
  38. Meaning of Modern Art.Karsten Harries - 1979 - Northwestern University Press.
    Originally published in 1968, Karsten Harries's classic work provides a philosophical understanding of how modern art differs fundamentally from the art of earlier periods.
  39. The Evangelical Rhetoric of Ramon Llull: Lay Learning and Piety in the Christian West Around 1300.Mark D. Johnston - 1996 - Oxford University Press.
    Ramon Llull (1232-1316), born on Majorca, was one of the most remarkable lay intellectuals of the thirteenth century. He devoted much of his life to promoting missions among unbelievers, the reform of Western Christian society, and personal spiritual perfection. He wrote over 200 philosophical and theological works in Catalan, Latin, and Arabic. Many of these expound on his "Great Universal Art of Finding Truth," an idiosyncratic dialectical system that he thought capable of proving Catholic beliefs to non-believers. This study offers (...)

  44. Zarathustra's Dionysian Modernism.Robert Gooding-Williams - 2001 - Stanford University Press.
    In arguing that Nietzsche's _Thus Spoke Zarathustra_ is a philosophical explanation of the possibility of modernism—that is, of the possibility of radical cultural change through the creation of new values—the author shows that literary fiction can do the work of philosophy. Nietzsche takes up the problem of modernism by inventing Zarathustra, a self-styled cultural innovator who aspires to subvert the culture of modernity by creating new values. By showing how Zarathustra can become a creator of new values, notwithstanding the forces (...)
  45. Contemporary French Feminism.Kelly Oliver & Lisa Walsh (eds.) - 2004 - Oxford University Press.
    Have we entered a historical moment of 'post-feminism'? This volume presents a timely and convincing 'no'. These essays demonstrate that there is a new generation of French women who take up questions of equality and difference from a position distinct from either first or second wave feminism, a position that often attempts to move beyond the binary of equality and/or difference to a new form of the individual.
  46. Self and Subjectivity.Kim Atkins (ed.) - 2005 - Wiley-Blackwell.
