  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. 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


  6. Is Faith in God Reasonable?

    "Is Faith in God Reasonable? brings top thinkers from a variety of disciplines to engage the central question of the age. The interaction is rigorous but the contributors maintain a professional and generous tone. The book provides a model of how disagreement about fundamental issues can and should be handled. This is a great entry into a deeper engagement with the question of God’s existence." -- Greg Ganssle, Rivendell Institute, Yale University

  7. Phenomenology and the Transcendental

    "Phenomenology and the Transcendental provides a wide-ranging and thought-provoking exploration of the transcendental character of phenomenology. Encompassing historical and contemporary discussions, and including important essays by key figures such as Carr, Crowell, and others, it is a fine collection that demonstrates the enormous strength of phenomenology as a continuing and expanding domain of inquiry as well as its increasing interdisciplinary significance and engagement" – Jeff Malpas, Distinguished Professor, University of Tasmania, Australia

  8. Routledge release free to view monograph research for the month of May

  9. Realism, Science, and Pragmatism

    "This is a first-rate collection of essays on the general issue of realism, on the relation of realism to contemporary philosophy of science and epistemology, and on the challenge that has been made to traditional realism by classical pragmatism and neo-pragmatism. The contributors are among the leading scholars in the field, and their essays advance the debates in ways that will provoke response and further inquiry. Anyone interested in the topic of realism, its history and current controversies, will benefit from paying the close attention that these essays deserve." —John Ryder, American University of Ras al Khaimah, United Arab Emirates

  10. The Affordable Care Act Decision: Philosophical and Legal Implications

    "Fritz Allhoff and Mark Hall have produced the single best book on the Supreme Court's decision upholding most of the Affordable Care Act. The wide-ranging perspectives that it includes, from some of the very best scholars in all the fields upon which the decision touches, allow readers to develop both a deep and broad understanding of the complex issues raised by the decision. No one can talk responsibly about this important decision without first benefitting from this book’s wonderful, insightful, and thorough interdisciplinary focus." --Michael J. Gerhardt, Samuel Ashe Distinguished Professor of Constitutional Law, University of North Carolina School of Law, USA
