  3. Peirce’s Account of Purposefulness: A Kantian Perspective

    "Gava offers a nuanced and strenuously argued defense for reading Peirce through a transcendental lens. This is an original study that will act as a rallying point for this school of interpreters – and a large target for its rivals." -- Vincent Colapietro, Pennsylvania State University

  4. Evidentialism and Epistemic Justification

    Evidentialism is a popular theory of epistemic justification, yet, as early proponents of the theory Earl Conee and Richard Feldman admit, there are many elements that must be developed before Evidentialism can provide a full account of epistemic justification, or well-founded belief. It is the aim of this book to provide the details that are lacking; here McCain moves past Evidentialism as a mere schema by putting forward and defending a full-fledged theory of epistemic justification. In this book McCain offers novel approaches to several elements of well-founded belief.

  5. Moral Psychology: A Contemporary Introduction

    "Valerie Tiberius’s book is an instant classic—the definitive introductory textbook on philosophical moral psychology. It is wide-ranging and authoritative, synthesizing an enormous amount of information, both scientific and philosophical. It’s also a lot of fun. With her trademark wit and levelheadedness, Tiberius introduces readers to moral philosophy’s most challenging problems and explains how recent scientific discoveries are casting these old problems in a new light. This book is beautifully written, filled with colorful examples that convey Tiberius’ hard-won insights. Each of these chapters is fascinating in its own right, and together they tell a remarkable story that is just beginning. It’s hard to imagine a better introduction to this exciting and rapidly advancing field." —Joshua Greene, Harvard University

     

  6. Philosophy of Social Science: A Contemporary Introduction

    "Crisply written, comprehensive and packed with examples, Mark Risjord's new Philosophy of Social Science: A Contemporary Introduction is a wonderful achievement. What is most remarkable is how deeply the philosophical account is embedded in and informed by contemporary empirical work in behavioral economics, evolutionary psychology and cognitive science; to pull this off without sacrificing accessibility is something of a miracle. This is just what philosophy of social science should be and both teacher and student will benefit accordingly." —Lee McIntyre, Boston University

  7. June Book of the Month: The Routledge Companion to 18th Century Philosophy

    "A superb collection, imaginatively conceived and expertly realized. Impressively comprehensive in its handling of recent scholarship on the history of eighteenth-century thought, the Companion also asks new questions about the relationship between philosophy and the arts and sciences in the European Enlightenment and Counter-Enlightenment. The result is a gift to students and essential reading for scholars of modern and early modern philosophy." - Thomas Holden, University of California-Santa Barbara, USA


    "A marvelous volume. In Garrett's hands, "eclecticism" proves a fresh and useful way of viewing the period's rich philosophizing. It is high praise to say that this remarkable collection proves wonderfully eclectic as well." - Stephen Darwall, Yale University, USA

  9. The Routledge Handbook of Embodied Cognition

    "This excellent collection arrives at a most appropriate time in the history of cognitive science. The editor’s choice of topics and contributors is skillful, and remarkably - given how difficult these topics can become - the chapters will be accessible to specialists and non-specialists alike." - Gordon Bermant, University of Pennsylvania, USA


    "This is an essential collection for researchers working in any area of cognitive science, and one that transitions embodied cognition from its position as a reactionary discipline to a research program in its own right. I expect this volume will act as a springboard for exciting new directions in teaching and research." - Stefan Linquist, University of Guelph, Canada

     

  10. Author Matt Zwolinski on Arguing About Political Philosophy

    "Arguing About Political Philosophy presents a whole range of ideas and arguments that are mostly ignored by other textbooks. From Held and MacKinnon on feminism, to Mills on critical race theory, to G.A. Cohen on “Why Not Socialism?”...Arguing About Political Philosophy exposes students to something much closer to the full range of political debate, not just the narrow piece of it that most other textbooks give."
