0550. Tác giả chính: Norman Lillegard
Nhan đề: On Epicurus / Norman Lillegard
Số phân loại : 123.5092 N434; Đặc điểm vật lý: x, 175 p. ; 24 cm
     *Tóm tắt : ON EPICURUS, like other titles in the Wadsworth Philosopher's Series, offers a concise, yet comprehensive, introduction to this philosopher's most important ideas. Presenting the most important insights of well over a hundred seminal philosophers in both the Eastern and Western traditions, the Wadsworth Philosophers Series contains volumes written by scholars noted for their excellence in teaching and for their well-versed comprehension of each featured philosopher's major works and contributions. These titles have proven valuable in a number of ways. Serving as standalone texts when tackling a philosophers' original sources or as helpful resources for focusing philosophy students' engagements with these philosopher's often conceptually daunting works, these titles have also gained extraordinary popularity with a lay readership and quite often serve as "refreshers" for philosophy instructors      .

Số phân loại : 128 D249; Đặc điểm vật lý: xvi, 1173Tr ; 24 cm
Tác giả khác: David Fate Norton; Mary J. Norton
     *Tóm tắt : David and Mary Norton present the definitive scholarly edition of Hume's Treatise, one of the greatest philosophical works ever written. The first volume contains the critical text of David Hume's Treatise of Human Nature (1739/40), followed by the short Abstract (1740) in which Hume set out the key arguments of the larger work; the volume concludes with A Letter from a Gentleman to his Friend in Edinburgh (1745), Hume's later defense of the Treatise      .

0553. Tác giả chính: Julian Baggini


Nhan đề: What’s it all about? : philosophy and the meaning of life / Julian Baggini
Số phân loại : 128 J510; Đặc điểm vật lý: 204 tr. ; 22 cm
     *Tóm tắt : What is the meaning of life? It is a question that has intrigued the great philosophers--and has been hilariously lampooned by Monty Python. Indeed, the whole idea strikes many of us as vaguely pompous, a little absurd. Is there one profound and mysterious meaning to life, a single ultimate purpose behind human existence? ...      .

0554. Tác giả chính: Graham Priest


Nhan đề: Towards non-being : the logic and metaphysics of intentionality / Graham Priest
Số phân loại : 128 G102; Đặc điểm vật lý: 190 p. : ill.  ; 23 cm
     *Tóm tắt : Graham Priest presents a ground-breaking account of the semantics of intentional language--verbs such as "believes," "fears," "seeks," or "imagines." Towards Non-Being proceeds in terms of objects that may be either existent or non-existent, at worlds that may be either possible or impossible. The book will be of central interest to anyone who is concerned with intentionality in the philosophy of mind or philosophy of language, the metaphysics of existence and identity, the philosophy of fiction, the philosophy of mathematics, or cognitive representation in AI      .

Nhan đề: Mind : a brief introduction / John R. Searle
Số phân loại : 128.2 J65; Đặc điểm vật lý: 326Tr : Minh họa ; 19 cm
     *Tóm tắt : "The philosophy of mind is unique among contemporary philosophical subjects," writes John Searle, "in that all of the most famous and influential theories are false." One of the world's most eminent thinkers, Searle dismantles these theories as he presents a vividly written, comprehensive introduction to the mind. He begins with a look at the twelve problems of philosophy of mind--which he calls "Descartes and Other Disasters"--problems which he returns to throughout the volume, as he illuminates such topics as materialism, consciousness, the mind-body problem, intentionality, mental causation, free will, and the self. The book offers a refreshingly direct and engaging introduction to one of the most intriguing areas of philosophy      .

0557. Tác giả chính: Alvin I. Goldman


Nhan đề: Simulating minds : the philosophy, psychology, and neuroscience of mindreading / Alvin I. Goldman
Số phân loại : 128.2 A475; Đặc điểm vật lý: ix, 364 tr. : ill. ; 25 cm
     *Tóm tắt : People are minded creatures; we have thoughts, feelings and emotions. More intriguingly, we grasp our own mental states, and conduct the business of ascribing them to ourselves and others without instruction in formal psychology. How do we do this? And what are the dimensions of our grasp of the mental realm? In this book, Alvin I. Goldman explores these questions with the tools of philosophy, developmental psychology, social psychology and cognitive neuroscience. He refines an approach called simulation theory, which starts from the familiar idea that we understand others by putting ourselves in their mental shoes. Can this intuitive idea be rendered precise in a philosophically respectable manner, without allowing simulation to collapse into theorizing? Given a suitable definition, do empirical results support the notion that minds literally create (or attempt to create) surrogates of other peoples mental states in the process of mindreading? Goldman amasses a surprising array of evidence from psychology and neuroscience that supports this hypothesis      .

0558. Tác giả chính: David Woodruff Smith


Nhan đề: Phenomenology and philosophy of mind / [edited by] David Woodruff Smith and Amie L. Thomasson
Số phân loại : 128.2 D111; Đặc điểm vật lý: x, 322 tr. : ill. ; 24 cm
     *Tóm tắt : Philosophical work on the mind flowed in two streams through the 20th century: phenomenology and analytic philosophy. This volume aims to bring them together again, by demonstrating how work in phenomenology may lead to significant progress on problems central to current analytic research, and how analytical philosophy of mind may shed light on phenomenological concerns. Leading figures from both traditions contribute specially written essays on such central topics as consciousness, intentionality, perception, action, self-knowledge, temporal awareness, and mental content. Phenomenology and Philosophy of Mind demonstrates that these different approaches to the mind should not stand in opposition to each other, but can be mutually illuminating      .
