    A Defense of the Russellian Orthodoxy

    By Arthur Sullivan

    Series: Routledge Studies in Contemporary Philosophy

  3. Aesthetics After Metaphysics

    From Mimesis to Metaphor

    By Miguel Beistegui

    Series: Routledge Studies in Contemporary Philosophy

De Beistegui refers to this dimension, which unfolds...

  4. Foundations of Freedom

    Welfare-Based Arguments Against Paternalism

    By Simon R. Clarke

    By Josep Corbí

  6. Contemporary Feminist Pragmatism

    Edited by Maurice Hamington, Celia Bardwell-Jones

    Series: Routledge Studies in Contemporary Philosophy

    The notion of "feminist pragmatism" or "pragmatist feminism" has been around since Charlene Haddock Seigfried introduced it two decades ago. However, the bulk of the work in this field has been directed toward recovering the feminist strain of classical American philosophy, largely through renewed...

  7. Truth and Speech Acts

    Studies in the Philosophy of Language

    Edited by Dirk Greimann, Geo Siegwart

    Series: Routledge Studies in Contemporary Philosophy

    By Kelly Becker

  9. Self-Realization and Justice

    A Liberal-Perfectionist Defense of the Right to Freedom from Employment

    By Julia Maskivker

    Series: Routledge Studies in Contemporary Philosophy

    In this book, Maskivker argues that there ought to be a right not to participate in the paid economy in a new way; not by appealing to notions of fairness to competing conceptions of the good, but rather to a contentious (but defensible) normative ideal, namely, self-realization. In so doing, she...
