Nhan đề: Seeing dark things : the philosophy of shadows / Roy Sorensen
Số phân loại : 121.34 R435; Đặc điểm vật lý: xiii, 310Tr : Minh họa ; 22 cm
     *Tóm tắt : Seeing Dark Things uses visual riddles to explore our ability to see shadows, silhouettes, and black birds--plus some things that are only metaphorically "dark" such as holes. These dark things are anomalies for the causal theory of perception which states that anything we see must be a cause of what we see. This orthodoxy successfully explains why you see the front of this page rather than its rear. However, the causal theory has trouble explaining how you manage to see the black letters on this page. The letters are made visible by the light they fail to reflect rather than the light they reflect      .

0543. Tác giả chính: Sanford Goldberg
Nhan đề: Internalism and externalism in semantics and epistemology / edited by Sanford Goldberg
Số phân loại : 121.4 A224; Đặc điểm vật lý: 303Tr ; 24 cm
     *Tóm tắt : To what extent are meaning, on the one hand, and knowledge, on the other, determined by aspects of the "outside world"? Internalism and Externalism in Semantics and Epistemology presents eleven specially written essays exploring these debates in metaphysics and epistemology and the connections between them. Topics discussed include the compatibility of semantic externalism and epistemic internalism, the variety of internalist and externalist positions (both semantic and epistemic), semantic externalism's implications for the epistemology of reasoning and reflection, and the possibility of arguments from the theory of mental content to the theory of epistemic justification (and vice versa)      .

0545. Tác giả chính: John Horty
Nhan đề: Frege on definitions : a case study of semantic content / John Horty
Số phân loại : 121.68092 J427; Đặc điểm vật lý: 159tr. ; 24cm
     *Tóm tắt : The book begins by focusing on the psychological constraints governing Frege's notion of sense, or meaning, and argues that, given these constraints, even the treatment of simple stipulative definitions led Frege to important difficulties. Horty is able to suggest ways out of these difficulties that are both philosophically and logically plausible and Fregean in spirit. This discussion is then connected to a number of more familiar topics, such as indexicality and the discussion of concepts in recent theories of mind and language      .


0546. Tác giả chính: Joseph Raz
Nhan đề: The practice of value / Joseph Raz ; with commentaries by Christine M. Korsgaard, Robert Pippin, Bernard Williams ; edited and introduced by R. Jay Wallace
Số phân loại : 121.8 J434; Đặc điểm vật lý: viii, 161 p. ; 21 cm
     *Tóm tắt : The Practice of Value explores the nature of value and its relation to the social and historical conditions under which human agents live. At the core of the book are the Tanner Lectures delivered at Berkeley in 2001 by Joseph Raz, who has been one of the leading figures in moral and legal philosophy since the 1970's. Raz argues that values depend importantly on social practices, but that we can make sense of this dependence without falling back on cultural relativism. In response, three eminent philosophers, Christine Korsgaard, Robert Pippin, and Bernard Williams, offer their own distinctive reflections on the connections between value and practice. The book begins with an introduction by Jay Wallace, setting the scene for what follows, and ends with a response from Raz to his commentators. The result is a fascinating debate, accessible to readers throughout and beyond philosophy, about the relations between human values and human life      .


0547. Tác giả chính: James Woodward
Nhan đề: Making things happen : a theory of causal explanation / James Woodward
Số phân loại : 122 J104; Đặc điểm vật lý: 410 p. : ill. ; 25 cm
     *Tóm tắt : Woodward's long awaited book is an attempt to construct a comprehensive account of causation explanation that applies to a wide variety of causal and explanatory claims in different areas of science and everyday life. The book engages some of the relevant literature from other disciplines, as Woodward weaves together examples, counterexamples, criticisms, defenses, objections, and replies into a convincing defense of the core of his theory, which is that we can analyze causation by appeal to the notion of manipulation      .


0548. Tác giả chính: Robert Kane
Nhan đề: The Oxford handbook of free will / edited by Robert Kane
Số phân loại : 123.5 R418; Đặc điểm vật lý: xvii, 638 tr. : ill. ; 26 cm
     *Tóm tắt : This comprehensive reference provides an exhaustive guide to current scholarship on the perennial problem of Free Will--perhaps the most hotly and voluminously debated of all philosophical problems. While reference is made throughout to the contributions of major thinkers of the past, the emphasis is on recent research. The essays, most of which are previously unpublished, combine the work of established scholars with younger thinkers who are beginning to make significant contributions. Taken as a whole, the Handbook provides an engaging and accessible roadmap to the state of the art thinking on this enduring topic      .
