  6. Philosophy Series of the Month: Routledge Studies in Ethics and Moral Theory

    Routledge Studies in Ethics and Moral Theory publishes original, international work and research of the highest scholarly quality in the areas of ethics and moral philosophy.

  7. 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

  8. 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.

  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. 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
