VSA06-003 The Routledge Companion to Shakespeare and Philosophy
  Craig Bourne/ 9781138936126/ Price:£ 175.00
 
The Routledge Companion to Shakespeare and Philosophy is the first major guide and reference source to Shakespeare and philosophy. It examines the following important topics: •What roles can be played in an approach to Shakespeare by drawing on philosophical frameworks and the work of philosophers? •What can philosophical theories of meaning and communication show about the dynamics of Shakespearean interactions and vice versa? •How are notions such as political and social obligation, justice, equality, love, agency and the ethics of interpersonal relationships demonstrated in Shakespeare’s works? •What do the plays and poems invite us to say about the nature of knowledge, belief, doubt, deception and epistemic responsibility? •How can the ways in which Shakespeare’s characters behave illuminate existential issues concerning meaning, absurdity, death and nothingness? •What might Shakespeare’s characters and their actions show about the nature of the self, the mind and the identity of individuals? •How can Shakespeare’s works inform philosophical approaches to notions such as beauty, humour, horror and tragedy? •How do Shakespeare’s works illuminate philosophical questions about the nature of fiction, the attitudes and expectations involved in engagement with theatre, and the role of acting and actors in creating representations?   The Routledge Companion to Shakespeare and Philosophy is essential reading for students and researchers in aesthetics, philosophy of literature and philosophy of theatre, as well as those exploring Shakespeare in disciplines such as literature and theatre and drama studies. It is also relevant reading for those in areas of philosophy such as ethics, epistemology and philosophy of language.

  Stephan Schmid/ 9781138243941/ Price:£ 100.00
 
Characterized by many historically significant events, such as the invention of the printing press, the discovery of the New World, and the Protestant Reformation, the years between 1300 and 1600 are a remarkably rich source of ideas about the mind.

VSA06-002 The Routledge Handbook of Libertarianism
  Brennan, Jason/ 9781138832169/ Price:£ 140.00
 
Book Cover Libertarians often bill their theory as an alternative to both the traditional Left and Right. The Routledge Handbook of Libertarianism helps readers fully examine this alternative without preaching it to them, exploring the contours of libertarian (sometimes also called classical liberal) thinking on justice, institutions, interpersonal ethics, government, and political economy. The 31 chapters--all written specifically for this volume--are organized into five parts. Part I asks, what should libertarianism learn from other theories of justice, and what should defenders of other theories of justice learn from libertarianism? Part II asks, what are some of the deepest problems facing libertarian theories? Part III asks, what is the right way to think about property rights and the market? Part IV asks, how should we think about the state? Finally, part V asks, how well (or badly) can libertarianism deal with some of the major policy challenges of our day, such as immigration, trade, religion in politics, and paternalism in a free market. Among the Handbook's chapters are those from critics who write about what they believe libertarians get right as well as others from leading libertarian theorists who identify what they think libertarians get wrong. As a whole, the Handbook provides a comprehensive, clear-eyed look at what libertarianism has been and could be, and why it matters.
   
VSA06-002 Routledge Companion to Philosophy of Race
  Taylor, Paul C./ 9780415711234/ Price:£ 175.00
 
Book Cover For many decades, race and racism have been common areas of study in departments of sociology, history, political science, English, and anthropology. Much more recently, as the historical concept of race and racial categories have faced significant scientific and political challenges, philosophers have become more interested in these areas. This changing understanding of the ontology of race has invited inquiry from researchers in moral philosophy, metaphysics, epistemology, philosophy of science, philosophy of language, and aesthetics. The Routledge Companion to Philosophy of Race offers in one comprehensive volume newly written articles on race from the world’s leading analytic and continental philosophers. It is, however, accessible to a readership beyond philosophy as well, providing a cohesive reference for a wide student and academic readership. The Companion synthesizes current philosophical understandings of race, providing 37 chapters on the history of philosophy and race as well as how race might be investigated in the usual frameworks of contemporary philosophy. The volume concludes with a section on philosophical approaches to some topics with broad interest outside of philosophy, like colonialism, affirmative action, eugenics, immigration, race and disability, and post-racialism. By clearly explaining and carefully organizing the leading current philosophical thinking on race, this timely collection will help define the subject and bring renewed understanding of race to students and researchers in the humanities, social science, and sciences.

Book Cover Thought experiments are a means of imaginative reasoning that lie at the heart of philosophy, from the pre-Socratics to the modern era, and they also play central roles in a range of fields, from physics to politics. The Routledge Companion to Thought Experiments is an invaluable guide and reference source to this multifaceted subject. Comprising over 30 chapters by a team of international contributors, the Companion covers the following important areas: · the history of thought experiments, from antiquity to the trolley problem and quantum non-locality; · thought experiments in the humanities, arts, and sciences, including ethics, physics, theology, biology, mathematics, economics, and politics; · theories about the nature of thought experiments; · new discussions concerning the impact of experimental philosophy, cross-cultural comparison studies, metaphilosophy, computer simulations, idealization, dialectics, cognitive science, the artistic nature of thought experiments, and metaphysical issues. This broad ranging Companion goes backwards through history and sideways across disciplines. It also engages with philosophical perspectives from empiricism, rationalism, naturalism, skepticism, pluralism, contextualism, and neo-Kantianism to phenomenology. This volume will be valuable for anyone studying the methods of philosophy or any discipline that employs thought experiments, as well as anyone interested in the power and limits of the mind.
   
VSA06-002 The Routledge Handbook of Collective Intentionality
  Jankovic, Marija/ 9781138783638/ Price:£ 165.00
 
Book Cover The Routledge Handbook of Collective Intentionality provides a wide-ranging survey of topics in a rapidly expanding area of interdisciplinary research. It consists of 36 chapters, written exclusively for this volume, by an international team of experts. What is distinctive about the study of collective intentionality within the broader study of social interactions and structures is its focus on the conceptual and psychological features of joint or shared actions and attitudes, and their implications for the nature of social groups and their functioning. This Handbook fully captures this distinctive nature of the field and how it subsumes the study of collective action, responsibility, reasoning, thought, intention, emotion, phenomenology, decision-making, knowledge, trust, rationality, cooperation, competition, and related issues, as well as how these underpin social practices, organizations, conventions, institutions and social ontology. Like the field, the Handbook is interdisciplinary, drawing on research in philosophy, cognitive science, linguistics, legal theory, anthropology, sociology, computer science, psychology, economics, and political science. Finally, the Handbook promotes several specific goals: (1) it provides an important resource for students and researchers interested in collective intentionality; (2) it integrates work across disciplines and areas of research as it helps to define the shape and scope of an emerging area of research; (3) it advances the study of collective intentionality.
   
VSA06-002 Spaces for the Future: A Companion to Philosophy of Technology
  Pitt, Joseph C./ 9780415842969/ Price:£ 175.00

VSA06-002 The Routledge Handbook of Evolution and Philosophy
  Joyce, Richard/ 9781138789555/ Price:£ 150.00
 
Book Cover In recent years, the relation between contemporary academic philosophy and evolutionary theory has become ever more active, multifaceted, and productive. The connection is a bustling two-way street. In one direction, philosophers of biology make significant contributions to theoretical discussions about the nature of evolution (such as "What is a species?"; "What is reproductive fitness?"; "Does selection operate primarily on genes?"; and "What is an evolutionary function?"). In the other direction, a broader group of philosophers appeal to Darwinian selection in an attempt to illuminate traditional philosophical puzzles (such as "How could a brain-state have representational content?"; "Are moral judgments justified?"; "Why do we enjoy fiction?"; and "Are humans invariably selfish?"). In grappling with these questions, this interdisciplinary collection includes cutting-edge examples from both directions of traffic. The thirty contributions, written exclusively for this volume, are divided into six sections: The Nature of Selection; Evolution and Information; Human Nature; Evolution and Mind; Evolution and Ethics; and Evolution, Aesthetics, and Art. Many of the contributing philosophers and psychologists are international leaders in their fields.
   
VSA06 The Routledge Handbook of Moral Epistemology
  Aaron Zimmerman/ 9781138816121/ Price:£ 175.00
 
The Routledge Handbook of Moral Epistemology brings together philosophers, cognitive scientists, developmental and evolutionary psychologists, animal ethologists, intellectual historians, and educators to provide the most comprehensive analysis of the prospects for moral knowledge ever assembled in print. The book’s thirty chapters feature leading experts describing the nature of moral thought, its evolution, childhood development, and neurological realization. Various forms of moral skepticism are addressed along with the historical development of ideals of moral knowledge and their role in law, education, legal policy, and other areas of social life. Highlights include: • Analyses of moral cognition and moral learning by leading cognitive scientists • Accounts of the normative practices of animals by expert animal ethologists • An overview of the evolution of cooperation by preeminent evolutionary psychologists • Sophisticated treatments of moral skepticism, relativism, moral uncertainty, and know-how by renowned philosophers • Scholarly accounts of the development of Western moral thinking by eminent intellectual historians • Careful analyses of the role played by conceptions of moral knowledge in political liberation movements, religious institutions, criminal law, secondary education, and professional codes of ethics articulated by cutting-edge social and moral philosophers.
   
VSA06 The Routledge Handbook of the Ethics of Discrimination
  Lippert-Rasmussen, Kasper/ 9781138928749/ Price:£ 165.00
 
Book Cover While it has many connections to other topics in normative and applied ethics, discrimination is a central subject in philosophy in its own right. It plays a significant role in relation to many real-life complaints about unjust treatment or unjust inequalities, and it raises a number of questions in political and moral philosophy, and in legal theory. Some of these questions include: what distinguishes the concept of discrimination from the concept of differential treatment? What distinguishes direct from indirect discrimination? Is discrimination always morally wrong? What makes discrimination wrong? How should we eliminate the effects of discrimination? By covering a wide range of topics, and by doing so in a way that does not assume prior acquaintance, this handbook enables the reader to get to grips with the omnipresent issue. The Routledge Handbook of the Ethics of Discrimination is an outstanding reference source to this exciting subject and the first collection of its kind. Comprising over thirty chapters by a team of international contributors the handbook is divided into six main parts: • conceptual issues • the wrongness of discrimination • groups of ‘discriminatees’ • sites of discrimination • causes and means • history of discrimination. Essential reading for students and researchers in applied ethics and political philosophy the handbook will also be very useful for those in related fields, such as law, sociology and politics.
   
VA06-72-2 Socrates II, 4-Vols/Set.
  Prior, William/ 9781138811362/ Price:£ 900.00
 
Book Cover Socrates is perhaps the most famous philosopher in the Western intellectual tradition. He raised fundamental questions, such as ‘what is justice?’ and ‘does virtue produce happiness?’. Although he wrote nothing himself, he is the source of a vast literature, beginning with Plato, Xenophon, and Aristotle, and continuing to the present day. In the two decades since the first Routledge Critical Assessments collection on Socrates was prepared for publication (Socrates (1996) (978-0-415-10968-0)), scholarly work has blossomed anew, not least in response to Gregory Vlastos’s Socrates: Ironist and Moral Philosopher and Charles Kahn’s Plato and the Socratic Dialogue. This new Routledge anthology, compiled by the editor of the first collection, takes full account of the many important developments that have taken place since the mid-1990s. Socrates II assembles in one easy-to-use resource the major works produced by established and rising scholars in this period on the topics covered in the original collection. It also gathers the very best material on additional themes, including: •the possibility of Socratic Studies; •Socratic irony; •Socratic metaphysics; •Socratic moral psychology; and •Socrates on love. With a full index, together with a comprehensive introduction, newly written by the editor, which places the collected material in its historical and intellectual context, Socrates II is an indispensable work of reference. It will interest not only scholars in the History of Philosophy, but also those working in Law, Political Science, and the History of Greek Religion.

VA06-215 Virtue Ethics, 4-Vols/Set.
  Angier, Tom/ 9780415640886/ Price:£ 920.00
 
Book Cover Explorations about and around the ethics of virtue dominated philosophical thinking in the ancient world, and recent moral philosophy has seen a massive revival of interest in virtue ethics as a rival to Kantian and utilitarian approaches. To help users make sense of the gargantuan—and, often, dauntingly complex—body of literature on the subject, this new four-volume collection is the latest addition to Routledge’s acclaimed Critical Concepts in Philosophy series. The editor has carefully assembled classic contributions, as well as more recent work, to create a one-stop ‘mini library’ of the best and most influential scholarship. While Volume I (‘Ancient Virtue Ethics’) focuses on the Greek and Roman founding fathers, it also brings together key works that examine the roots of virtue ethics in Christian, Asian, and other traditions. Volume II is organized around ‘Religious Virtue Ethics’, especially in the last sixty years or so, and Volume III brings together ‘Modern Virtue Ethics’. The final volume in the collection (‘Applied Virtue Ethics’) assembles major works on topics such as the beginning and end of life; the environment; animal rights; business ethics; sports ethics; the virtues and the economy; the virtues and political life; studies of particular virtues; and debates about whether particular traits are indeed virtues. With a comprehensive index and a useful synoptic introduction newly written by the editor, Virtue Ethics will be welcomed as an indispensable resource for both reference and research.

Peter Gabriel: Global Citizen
  Paul Hegarty/ 9781780239767/ Price:£ 9.95
 
Peter Gabriel is one of contemporary music’s great experimenters. From his work in the progressive group Genesis, through his pioneering solo albums, to his enthusiastic embrace of world music and new technologies, Gabriel has remained steadfastly consistent in his redefinition of music’s boundaries and influence: geographical, virtual and thematic. At the heart of Paul Hegarty’s astute analysis is the idea of locatedness: what it means to be in a specific place at a given time, and to reflect on that time and the changes which inevitably occur. Gabriel’s work, Hegarty argues, can be understood as a series of reflections on the ‘where’ of being – and this includes politics, psychology, philosophy, psychogeography and inward reflection. Peter Gabriel offers a nuanced and trenchant insight into this enigmatic musician and his works, an artist whose constant travelling – through identities, influences and media – defines him as one of modern culture’s truly global citizens.
   
Angels in Mourning: Sublime Madness, Ennui and Melancholy in Modern Thought
  Roger Bartra/ 9781780239729/ Price:£ 15.99
 
Sublime madness and ennui: melancholy is a condition of imbalance, chaotic and desolate, and a keystone of modern Western thought. In Angels in Mourning, Roger Bartra explores how three lucid European thinkers – Immanuel Kant, Max Weber and Walter Benjamin – addressed the irrational and the dolorous, drawing attention to some apparently marginal aspects of their work in order to illuminate the way in which they gazed into the darkness. It is not obvious why melancholy should find such a prominent space in our society. Why did this threatening expression of langour and disorder gain such a foothold at the heart of a European culture guided by the light of rationalism? In this surprising and insightful study, Bartra considers this question through investigations of Kant, Weber and Benjamin, and suggests that one explanation may lie in the blossoming of Romanticism, that deep-seated protest against the Enlightenment and the capitalist order.
   
A Philosophy of Dirt
  Olli Lagerspetz/ 9781780239187/ Price:£ 15.00
 
Book Cover What is dirt? What does it really mean to be dirty? Or clean? Dirt and cleaning are often associated with ideas of guilt, otherness and social control, but also with living responsibly and in harmony with the environment. In this learned, witty and groundbreaking study, Olli Lagerspetz offers a persuasive discussion of dirt and its ramifications in philosophy and culture. He argues that questions of dirt and soiling can neither be reduced to hygiene nor to ritual pollution. Instead, they are part and parcel of almost every human activity. As participants in material culture, we produce things and dispose of them but we also engage with them practically, aesthetically and morally. The book ranges through subjects and times, from Heraclitus of Ephesus, through the Renaissance, via Ludwig Wittgenstein, Martin Heidegger and Mary Douglas, to the hygienic products of modernity, ending with abject art. Lagerspetz constantly questions current thinking on the subject, and proposes a new view of dirt based on our physical engagement with the world. A Philosophy of Dirt is essential reading for scholars and students of philosophy, as well as all who feel soiled and want to know why.
   
VSA06-002 The Routledge Handbook of Philosophy of Memory
  Bernecker, Sven/ 9781138909366/ Price:£ 165.00
 
Book Cover Memory occupies a fundamental place in philosophy, playing a central role not only in the history of philosophy but also in philosophy of mind, epistemology, and ethics.

The final part examines figures in the history of philosophy, including Aristotle, Augustine, Freud, Bergson, Wittgenstein, and Heidegger, as well as perspectives on memory in Indian and Chinese philosophy. Essential reading for students and researchers in philosophy, particularly philosophy of mind and psychology, the Handbook will also be of interest to those in related fields, such as psychology and anthropology.

VSA06-002 The Routledge Handbook of Philosophy of Empathy
  Maibom, Heidi/ 9781138855441/ Price:£ 185.00

VSA06-002 The Routledge Handbook of Epistemic Contextualism
  Ichikawa, Jonathan Jenkins/ 9781138818392/ Price:£ 160.00
 
Book Cover Epistemic contextualism is a recent and hotly debated topic in philosophy. Contextualists argue that the language we use to attribute knowledge can only be properly understood relative to a specified context. How much can our knowledge depend on context? Is there a limit, and if so, where does it lie? What is the relationship between epistemic contextualism and fundamental topics in philosophy such as objectivity, truth, and relativism? The Routledge Handbook of Epistemic Contextualism is an outstanding reference source to the key topics, problems, and debates in this exciting subject and is the first collection of its kind. Comprising thirty-seven chapters by a team of international contributors the Handbook is divided into eight parts: •Data and motivations for contextualism •Methodological issues •Epistemological implications •Doing without contextualism •Relativism and disagreement •Semantic implementations •Contextualism outside ‘knows’ •Foundational linguistic issues. Within these sections central issues, debates and problems are examined, including contextualism and thought experiments and paradoxes such as the Gettier problem and the lottery paradox; semantics and pragmatics; the relationship between contextualism, relativism, and disagreement; and contextualism about related topics like ethical judgments and modality. The Routledge Handbook of Epistemic Contextualism is essential reading for students and researchers in epistemology and philosophy of language. It will also be very useful for those in related fields such as linguistics and philosophy of mind.

VSA06-002 Routledge Companion to Sixteenth Century Philosophy
  Lagerlund, Henrik/ 9780415658607/ Price:£ 185.00
 
Book Cover Sixteenth century philosophy was a unique synthesis of several philosophical frameworks, a blend of old and new, including but not limited to Scholasticism, Humanism, Neo-Thomism, Aristotelianism, and Stoicism. Unlike most overviews of this period, The Routledge Companion to Sixteenth Century Philosophy does not simplify this colorful era by applying some traditional dichotomies, such as the misleading line once drawn between scholasticism and humanism. Instead, the Companion closely covers an astonishingly diverse set of topics: philosophical methodologies of the time, the importance of the discovery of the new world, the rise of classical scholarship, trends in logic and logical theory, Nominalism, Averroism, the Jesuits, the Reformation, Neo-stoicism, the soul’s immortality, skepticism, the philosophies of language and science and politics, cosmology, the nature of the understanding, causality, ethics, freedom of the will, natural law, the emergence of the individual in society, the nature of wisdom, and the love of god. Throughout, the Companion seeks not to compartmentalize these philosophical matters, but instead to show that close attention paid to their continuity may help reveal both the diversity and the profound coherence of the philosophies that emerged in the sixteenth century. The Companion’s 27 chapters are published here for the first time, and written by an international team of scholars, and accessible for both students and researchers.

VA06-217 Philosophy of Mathematics, 5-Vols/Set.
  Paseau, A. C./ 9781138886667/ Price:£ 940.00
 
Book Cover The philosophy of mathematics is also one of the oldest academic fields, more or less coeval with philosophy itself. But contemporary philosophy of mathematics is rather different from its pre-twentieth-century antecedents, largely for three reasons. The first is that since the seventeenth century, mathematics has become integral to science. Science has over the past few centuries become increasingly mathematical, and indeed the fundamental science of nature, physics, is today recognised as a branch of applied mathematics. The second is that mathematics underwent a transformation in the course of nineteenth century: having started the century as a rather traditional-looking science of quantity it emerged a hundred years later a radically transformed abstract theory of structure. The final factor in the transformation of the philosophy of mathematics is the rise of modern logic. Developed by Frege, Cantor and others in the late nineteenth century, modern logic pervades contemporary mathematics, philosophy and computer science, and has had an immeasurable effect on the philosophy of mathematics. These volumes will collect the major works in this major field, with a focus on the last few decades. The anthology will include technical work, which interprets philosophically significant mathematical results or subfields of mathematics, as well as purely philosophical writing, aimed at those without advanced mathematics. The collection should be of interest to both philosophers and mathematicians, as well as to anyone who is susceptible to wondering what the main intellectual tool used in science, economics and finance, and indeed everyday life is ultimately about.

SA06-467 A Philosophy of Loneliness.
  Svendsen, Lars/ 9781780237473/ Price:£ 12.99
 
Book Cover Loneliness is a difficult subject to address, because it has such negative connotations. But the truth is that wherever there are people, there is loneliness: everyone is lonely at some point in their lives. You can be lonely in a crowd or at home, outdoors or in an empty church, and countless songs have been written about the condition. For many people, loneliness can significantly impact their quality of life and their physical and mental health. At the same time, our best moments can come when we are alone, and this can tell us something important about our place in the world. But what exactly is loneliness? Who does it affect? Why does it occur, linger and disappear? Lars Svendsen investigates both the positive and the negative sides of loneliness in this thoughtful new book. Drawing on the latest research in the fields of philosophy, psychology and the social sciences, A Philosophy of Loneliness explores the different kinds of loneliness, the philosophy of emotions, why some people are lonelier than others, and the psychological and social characteristics that dispose people to loneliness. Svendsen looks at the role of friendship and love in our lives and argues that our main problem is not that there is too much loneliness in modern societies, but rather that there is too little solitude. This hugely important book is essential reading for all those who want to know more about this complex and profound state of being.
   
SA06-467 Attention: Beyond Mindfulness.
  Watson, Gay/ 9781780237459/ Price:£ 14.99
 
Book Cover Attention is central to everything we do and think; yet it is usually invisible, transparent, lost behind our fixation with content. We pay attention to this and that moment or we let our attention wander, but we rarely give attention to the process of attending and distraction. It is typically viewed instrumentally, in terms of what it can achieve, and so its process and practice are overlooked, yet it is central to neuroplasticity – the brain’s ability to create new neural pathways in order to adapt – and underlies both the mindfulness revolution and the concern about the influence of new social and digital media. Gay Watson explores attention in action through many disciplines and ways of life, from neuroscience to surfing. The book contains interviews with, among others, John Luther Adams, Stephen Batchelor, Susan Blackmore, Guy Claxton, Edmund de Waal, Rick Hanson, Jane Hirshfield, Iain McGilchrist, Wayne McGregor, Garry Fabian Miller, Alice and Peter Oswald, Ruth Ozeki and James Turrell. A valuable and timely account of something central to our lives yet all too often neglected, this book will appeal to all those who find their attention wandering owing to the distractions and clamour of modern life, and want to know why.

Gilles Deleuze
  Frida Beckman/ 9781780237312/ Price:£ 11.99
 
Book Cover Gilles Deleuze, the person and philosopher, was both singular and multifaceted. Frida Beckman traces Deleuze’s remarkable intellectual journey, mapping the encounters from which his life and work emerged. She considers how his life and philosophical developments resonate with historical, political and philosophical events, from the Second World War to the student uprisings in the 1960s, the opening of the experimental University of Paris VIII and the Israeli–Palestinian conflict. Although less of a public figure than many of his contemporaries, Deleuze’s life and philosophy are bound up with his numerous friendships, collaborations and disputes with several of the period’s most influential thinkers, as well as his connections with writers, artists and film scholars. Beckman considers the events, moods and intensities that were generated by this multiplicity of encounters throughout his life. The book follows Deleuze from the salons to which he was invited as a young student through his popularity as a young teacher to the development of the rich phases of his philosophical work. While resisting the idea of ‘Deleuzians’, the book also reviews a post-Deleuzian legacy and the influence of this extraordinary thinker on contemporary philosophy.
   
Mind: Your Consciousness is What and Where?
  Ted Honderich/ 9781780238210/ Price:£ 16.00
 
Book Cover his important new book tackles the great problem of philosophy of mind. Honderich proposes to entirely replace all major competing general theories of consciousness with the theory of Actualism: a theory that rests on data that you share yourself, of consciousness that can be labelled as being actual. Unlike other theories, Actualism differentiates between the three sides of consciousness – consciousness within seeing as well as other perception, consciousness that is thinking and consciousness that is wanting. Honderich argues that your consciousness in seeing right now is probably the existence of a room out there, not some kind of image or picture in your head. A real thing out there, dependent as a matter of scientific law on both the objective physical world and on you as a thinking and breathing person. It is a theory that is becoming increasingly popular among philosophers, psychologists and neuroscientists. Honderich’s readable, understandable and unpretentious writing tackles these bold concepts and complex thoughts with clarity and verve, as he moves forward and reinvents our current understanding of consciousness and mind.

Comprising over thirty chapters by a team of international contributors the Handbook is divided into four parts: •basic ideas •quantitative and formal aspects •natural and physical aspects •human and semantic aspects. Within these sections central issues are examined, including probability, the logic of information, informational metaphysics, the philosophy of data and evidence, and the epistemic value of information. The Routledge Handbook of Philosophy of Information is essential reading for students and researchers in philosophy, computer science and communication studies.
   
VA06-214 Elizabeth Anscombe, 4-Vols/Set.
  Teichmann, Roger/ 9780415708579/ Price:£ 940.00
 
Book Cover Anscombe published two monographs and numerous articles in her lifetime, and left a considerable Nachlass. The monograph Intention (1957) has been hugely influential and has generated much discussion, as have such articles as ‘Modern Moral Philosophy’ and ‘The First Person’. (Indeed, ‘Modern Moral Philosophy’ has been credited with inspiring that renewal of interest in virtues and character which came to be embodied in a whole school of thought, often called ‘Virtue Theory’.) Profound, often difficult, sometimes provocative, her work is probably unique in modern philosophy for its combination of breadth and depth. Now, to allow researchers and advanced students to make better sense of Anscombe, her major works, and the developments it has encouraged, Routledge announces this new four-volume collection in its acclaimed Critical Assessments of Leading Philosophers series. Henceforward, Anscombe scholars and students will be able easily and rapidly to locate the best and most influential critical scholarship, work that is otherwise often inaccessible or scattered throughout a variety of specialist journals and books. With material gathered into one easy-to-use set, researchers and students can now spend more of their time with the key journal articles, book chapters, and other pieces, rather than on time-consuming (and sometimes fruitless) archival searches. Fully indexed and with a comprehensive introduction newly written by the expert editor, which places the collected material in its historical and intellectual context, Elizabeth Anscombe is an essential reference work and is destined to be valued as a vital research resource.
   
VA06-213 Perception, 4-Vols/Set.
  Fish, William/ 9781138903975/ Price:£ 885.00
 
Conscious perceptual experiences are not only one of the most pervasive and familiar mental states that we enjoy in our lives as minded creatures, but they are also the most fundamental source of our knowledge of the world in which we live. An understanding of perception is therefore essential to both understanding who we are and how we engage with the world in which we live. Although philosophical thinking about perception is as old as philosophy itself, the late 20th and early 21st centuries have seen a resurgence of interest in this core philosophical topic which has seen it become one of the hottest topics in contemporary philosophy. The proposed collection will therefore provide the reader with the historical background needed to understand the key concerns of contemporary philosophy of perception (Volume I) as well as a detailed understanding of the different theories that attempt to address those concerns (Volume II). In addition to this, the collection will also provide the reader with an appreciation for the many ways in which philosophical and empirical, scientific approaches to perception interact with one another (Volume III) and will introduce the reader to both historical and contemporary attempts to move our thinking about perception beyond the central case of vision (Volume IV). Each volume will contain a newly-written introduction by the editor that will both overview the contents of that particular volume and connect that volume to the general themes of the collection.
   
VA06-212 Indian Philosophy, 4-Vols/Set.
  Ganeri, Jonardon/ 9780415712057/ Price:£ 940.00
 
The first of the four volumes (‘Philosophical Inquiry and the Aims of Life’) collects the best scholarship on how Indians have understood the purpose and importance of philosophy; what philosophy as a discipline consists of; the relationship between the study of philosophy and the aims, arts, and ways of life; and, indeed, whether philosophical inquiry is possible. Volume II (‘Self, No Self’), meanwhile, surveys the great diversity of Indian thinking about the mind, with particular emphasis on the vibrant and dynamic work done by a new generation of scholars working at the interface between Buddhist Studies, Cognitive Science, Philosophy of Mind, and Phenomenology. Volume III (‘Critical Indian Philosophers’) focuses on the thought of the most important individual thinkers in the Indian tradition, including: Nagarjuna, Sankara, Dignaga, Dharmakirti, Patanjali, Kumarila, and Srihar?a. The final volume in the collection (‘Being and Truth’) collates canonical and cutting-edge pieces on Indian theories of being and what there is; realism and antirealism; the nature of truth and representation; and language and logic. The materials gathered here will enable users to get a grip on the remarkable range of Indian thinking about the structure of the world and its fundamental constitution, as well providing insight into fundamental Indian theories about how we reason and how we talk.
   
VA06-211 Theodor W, Adorno II, 2-Vols/Set.
  Hammer, Espen/ 9781138886698/ Price:£ 420.00
 
A new title in Routledge’s Critical Assessments of Leading Philosophers series, this is a two-volume collection of the very best recent scholarship on Theodor W. Adorno (1903–69). It is an essential successor to an earlier four-volume collection, Theodor Adorno (Critical Evaluations in Cultural Theory) (978-0-415-30464-1), edited by Simon Jarvis and published by Routledge in 2006. Recent decades have seen a remarkable growth of scholarly studies devoted to Theodor W. Adorno’s philosophy and social theory. Every year, conferences and publications all over the world testify to a lively interest. Indeed, since his death in 1969, Adorno has been read and discussed not only by philosophers but by researchers in all areas of the theoretical humanities, and his impact has been considerable both inside and outside the academy. This new Routledge collection brings together the very best of recent research on Adorno. The editor has particularly focused on works that take account of contemporary developments in philosophy and social theory, demonstrating how Adorno’s view may engage with contemporary theoretical concerns. With a full index, together with a comprehensive introduction, newly written by the editor, which places the collected material in its historical and intellectual context, Theodor W. Adorno II is an indispensable work of reference. It is destined to be valued by scholars, students, and researchers as a vital research resource.

The Making of a Man: Notes on Transsexuality.
  Februari, Maxim/ 9781780234441/ Price:£ 15.00
 
Book Cover In autumn 2012, writer and philosopher Maxim Februari – known until then as Marjolijn Februari – announced that he intended to live as a man. The reactions that greeted Februari, ranging from interest to concern and unease, made it clear that most of us don’t know what or how to think about transsexuality. Drawing on deeply personal experiences, The Making of a Man: Notes on Transsexuality explores this lack of understanding about gender, sex and identity. The process of changing sex is a lengthy one, but to the outside world it takes place as a fairly abrupt switch. Over just 24 hours, as the testosterone took effect, Februari started to find himself addressed as a man rather than a woman. ‘What had changed?’, he asks. ‘I hadn’t had a haircut, I wasn’t wearing different clothes; it was just that the testosterone had altered the subtle signals by which my body suggested its sex.’
   
Wisdom: A History.
  Curnow, Trevor/ 9781780234519/ Price:£ 20.00
 
Book Cover Every society has had to deal with problems posed by the fundamental features of human existence, from love to mortality. In facing these we have sought to find wise solutions for them. Globally, many cultures have believed in the divine nature of wisdom, and have attributed it to deities such as Sarasvati, Apollo and Odin. Wisdom: A History provides an introduction to wisdom in its many forms. Trevor Curnow draws on examples from diverse times and cultures including ancient Egypt, medieval Europe and modern Africa. Special attention is paid to the proverb – regarded as a vehicle for wisdom throughout history – and the author collects 100 edifying sayings at the book’s conclusion, which can instruct and inform readers searching for wisdom in their own lives. It contains wonderful images of what wisdom may, or may not look like, and provides new insights into what wisdom is and where to find it. This book will be invaluable to all those interested in the history of humanity’s quest for that elusive thing called wisdom.
   
Conscience: A Biography.
  van Creveld, Martin/ 9781780234540/ Price:£ 20.00
 
Book Cover In this biography of that most elusive human element, Martin van Creveld explores conscience throughout history, ranging across numerous subjects, from human rights to health to the environment. Along the way he considers the evolution of conscience in its myriad, occasionally strange and ever-surprising permutations. The Old Testament – erroneously, it turns out – is normally seen as the fountainhead from which the Western idea of conscience has sprung, while Antigone was the first person on record to explicitly speak of conscience. The story of conscience involves the philosophers Zeno, Cicero and Seneca; Christian thinkers such as Paul, Augustine, Aquinas and, above all, Martin Luther; and modern intellectual giants such as Machiavelli, Rousseau, Kant, Hegel, Nietzsche and Freud. Individual chapters are devoted to Japan, China and even the Nazis, as well as the most recent discoveries in robotics and neuroscience and how they have contributed to the ways we think about our own morality. Ultimately, van Creveld shows that conscience remains as elusive as ever, a continuously mysterious voice that guides how we think about right and wrong.
   
A Philosophy of Pessimism.
  Sim, Stuart/ 9781780235059/ Price:£ 14.95

Reflect on such phenomena at any length and it can be very difficult not to become deeply pessimistic about human existence.

VA06-201 Daniel Dennett, 4-Vols/Set.
  Symons, John/ 9780415588140/ Price:£ 630.00
 
Book Cover Daniel Dennett has been one of the central voices in the philosophy of mind for at least the past forty years. Unlike most philosophers of his generation, Dennett’s work has resonated far and wide. It has powerfully influenced the development of cognitive science, robotics, developmental psychology, and artificial intelligence. Indeed, his work has led to many new lines of inquiry. For example, he has developed a theory of consciousness which provides an approach to naturalizing mind which circumvents many of the most significant philosophical arguments against the possibility of a scientific explanation of consciousness. The daunting quantity (and variable quality) of literature available on Dennett makes it difficult to discriminate the useful from the tendentious, superficial, and otiose. Moreover, because no comparable philosopher has had a profound impact across such a wide range of disciplines and on intellectual culture in general, responses to Dennett’s philosophy are dispersed across a broad range of scientific, philosophical, and cultural domains. That is why this new title in the highly regarded Routledge series, Critical Assessments of Leading Philosophers, is so urgently needed. Edited by John Symons, this new Routledge Major Work is a four-volume collection of the best scholarship on Dennett; the collected materials have been carefully selected from a wide range of academic journals, edited collections, research monographs, and other sources. The tightly focused organization of this collection allows users quickly and easily to access both established and cutting-edge assessments of Dennett’s work. The set is also made for irresistible browsing. With comprehensive introductions to each volume, providing essential background information and relating the various works to each other, Daniel Dennett is destined to be an indispensable resource for research and study.

Aryan Unconscious: Archetype of Discrimination, History & Politics.
  Glinka, Lukasz A./ 9781907343599/ Price:£ 50.00
 
Book Cover Joining the spirit of analytical psychology, a psychoanalytic method investigated by C.G. Jung, and the arguments of history, language, literature, philosophy, sociology, and theology, this book presents the archetype of discrimination. Both the historical state of affairs, particularly the recent emergence of cultural, military, and political conflicts, and the prehistoric aspects such like Ouroboros and Swastika, the archaeological artifacts of the Antiquity, are explored.
   
A Philosophy of Freedom.
  Svendsen, Lars/ 9781780233703/ Price:£ 25.00
 
Freedom of speech, religion, choice, will – humans have fought, and continue to fight, for all of these. But what is human freedom, and what are the main threats to it today? These questions and more are discussed in this comprehensive investigation of the nature of freedom in contemporary society. Our behaviours, thoughts and actions are governed by a variety of restrictions, deadlines and burdens. Taking a broad approach across metaphysics, politics and ethics, A Philosophy of Freedom questions how we can successfully create meaningful lives for ourselves and others when we are estranged from the very concept of what it means to be free. By tackling such issues as the nature of free agency and the possibility of freedom in a universe governed by natural laws, Svendsen concludes that the real definition of personal freedom is first and foremost the liberty to devote yourself to what truly matters to you. ??
   
A Philosophy of Emptiness.
  Watson, Gay/ 9781780232850/ Price:£ 14.95
 
A Philosophy of Emptiness probes the idea of how a life without transcendence might be lived, and why one might choose it. It links these concepts to current ideas of meditation and the mind, and offers a rich and intriguing take on the idea of emptiness that will appeal to all those with an interest in the history of thought.

  宮崎滔天原著; 章士釗編譯;潘光哲導讀/ 9789868938519/ Price:NT$ 130.00
 
Book Cover 值此民國百年之此際,藉檢討章士釗「譯錄」之《孫逸仙》與宮崎滔天《三十三年?夢》原著之關聯,具體顯示,廿世紀初期中國「革命想像」的思想基礎,其實以種族/民族主義為號召;相形之下,「共和主義」的目標,固然亦可異聲同唱,卻好似難可激盪世眾。這等以種族/民族主義為號召與思想基礎的「革命」,固然是建立中華民國的思想動力。然而,詮解「革命」的歷史遺產,實在不該僅僅侷限在「中華」,而忘記了「民國」。

VA06-205 Encyclopedia of Philosophy and the Social Sciences, 2-Vols/Set.
  Kaldis, Byron/ 9781412986892/ Price:£ 320.00
 
Book Cover This encyclopedia is purposefully interdisciplinary, the goal being to convey a clear sense of how philosophy looks at the social sciences and thereby delineate a detailed picture of how exactly the two are interrelated. Though the theme of this relationship has had its own history and received some academic treatment in the past, there are now fast-developing novel areas at the interface between philosophy and certain modern areas of social-scientific research spawning out of AI and Cognitive Studies and their sub-fields that demand a totally new and rather more complex perspective. It is becoming increasingly apparent that both traditional philosophical branches (like philosophy of mind) as well as traditional social-scientific ones get linked up to each other via such developments in the area of cognition (c.f. evolutionary psychology and genetics) that have outmoded, old-fashioned, rigid divisions between the humanities and social sciences. At the same time, advances in social-scientific research, such as rational choice theory, statistical or stochastic models of decision-making, or mathematical modeling of action, have in turn impacted upon philosophy. The philosophical searchlight has always been turned on the sciences, but whereas the philosophy of the physical and biological sciences is a well-covered field in terms of textbooks, especially in recent years, the philosophical exploration of the social sciences has remained relatively patchy or partitioned into sub-fields of social sciences (e.g. philosophy of economics) without a unified and detailed treatment like the one this encyclopedia proposes to provide.

VA06-204 Existentialism, 4-Vols/Set.
  Staehler, Tanja/ 9780415667005/ Price:£ 1020.00
 
To make sense of existentialism’s huge—and growing—corpus of scholarly literature, this new Routledge collection answers the need for an authoritative, up-to-date, and comprehensive reference work. In four volumes, it assembles the foundational and the very best cutting-edge research. Volume I (‘Key Figures and Definitions’) maps the development of existentialism from the first existentialist to the classic and contemporary existentialists. It also gives users an impression of the most prominent definitions of existentialism. Volume II (‘Basic Themes and Concepts’), meanwhile, collects the most important texts on the key notions of existentialism, such as subject/object, authenticity, ambiguity, humanism, and emotions. Volume III (‘Existentialist Aesthetics and Psychology’) attends to those areas outside philosophy which have been most influenced by existentialism: aesthetics (literature, theatre, art, theory) and psychology (psychoanalysis, psychotherapy). The final volume in the collection (‘Horizons of Existentialism’) considers several other interdisciplinary areas, including: religion, feminism, communications, and politics. Existentialism is supplemented with a full index, and includes a newly written comprehensive introduction which places the collected material in its historical and intellectual context. The collection will be valued by scholars, students, and researchers as a vital research resource.

VA06-202 Philosophy of Psychology, The., 4-Vols/Set.
  Bermudez, Jose Luis/ 9780415671118/ Price:£ 1020.00
 
The study of human behaviour, and the minds that produce that behaviour, has been an occupation of scholars, artists, and philosophers for millennia. But it was not until the turn of the twentieth century that psychology came into its own as a distinct field of study-and, more importantly, as a scientifically legitimate field of study. When we view psychology as a science, certain questions naturally emerge: what sorts of phenomena does psychology seek to explain? What is distinctive about the kinds of explanations adduced in this science? How do these explanations integrate with theories and explanations in other fields of study? Does psychology aim to explain all mental phenomena, or are there some areas, such as consciousness, that will be forever beyond its explanatory powers? Due to its very nature, psychology is a field that both philosophers and scientists have critically examined over the years. This critical examination has, in turn, generated a literature that is voluminous, heavily contested, and increasingly technical. To help users to make sense of this large and complex scholarly corpus, this new four-volume collection from Routledge is both comprehensive and sensitive to the ongoing nature of debates in the field. Two expert editors have carefully assembled classic contributions, as well as more recent work, to create an indispensable 'mini library' of the best and most influential scholarship in the philosophy of psychology. With a comprehensive index and newly written introductions by the editors, The Philosophy of Psychology will be welcomed by a broad range of scholars, researchers, and advanced students, especially those working in philosophy, psychology, linguistics, and cognitive science.
   
VA06-200 Epistemology, 4-Vols/Set.
  Neta, Ram/ 9780415579131/ Price:£ 865.00
 
Book Cover For those working in Epistemology dizzying questions such as the following arise: • When are beliefs rational, or justified? • How should we update our beliefs in the light of new evidence? • Is it possible to gain knowledge, or justification? • How do we know what we know, and why do we care about whether—and what—others know? • How can the exploration of pre-Socratic philosophical questions about knowledge assist with the design of twenty-first-century computer interfaces? Addressing the need for an authoritative and comprehensive reference work to enable users to answer these and other questions, and to make sense of—and to navigate around—an ever more complex corpus of scholarly literature, Epistemology is a new title in Routledge’s acclaimed Critical Concepts in Philosophy series. Edited by Ram Neta, it is a four-volume collection which brings together foundational and the very best cutting-edge scholarship in a unique one-stop ‘mini library’. Supplemented with a full index, and including an introduction to each volume, newly written by the editor, which places the assembled materials in their historical and intellectual context, Epistemology is destined to be valued by scholars and students as a vital research resource.
   
VA06-199 Philosophy of Race, The., 4-Vols/Set.
  Taylor, Paul/ 9780415496025/ Price:£ 900.00
 
Since at least the early 1990s, philosophical race theory has emerged as a dynamic and fertile area of serious scholarly inquiry, and this new four-volume Major Work from Routledge meets the need for a comprehensive collection to facilitate ready access to the most influential and important foundational and cutting-edge scholarship. Volume I (‘Philosophy and the History of Race, Race in the History of Philosophy’) brings together the key texts to have shaped the most widely recognized forms of ‘race thinking’. The second and third volumes in the collection, meanwhile, explore the questions that race raises in philosophy’s traditional subfields. Volume II (‘Racial Being and Knowing’) gathers the best and most influential work to unravel the implications of racial practices for metaphysics, ontology, and epistemology. And Volume III (‘Race-ing Beauty, Goodness, and Right’) collects the key scholarship to deal with the consequences of racial practices for aesthetics, ethics, and politics. The final volume in the collection (‘Intersections and Positions’) assembles the most important work to grapple with the methodological and geographical complications that accompany a commitment to racialism. (Race is an inherently contextual phenomenon and some of the material gathered in this volume—in particular, that exploring racialization in Japan, Brazil, and Norway—provides a refreshing counterweight to the philosophical zeal for abstraction.)

SA06-428 A Philosophy of Discomfort.
  Pezeu-Massabuau, Jacques/ 9781861899033/ Price:£ 22.50
 
A Philosophy of Discomfort explores the idea of comfort and discomfort as a historical and philosophical concept – a constant push and pull of opposing forces. Discomfort is a relative state, changing as the idea of well-being shifts through different epochs and cultures. Yet Jacques Pezeu-Massabuau claims that discomfort is of greater importance than comfort, even as we maintain the constant struggle to evade pains and privations. He explores notions of comfort over time, and considers examples of housing and interiors, from Japanese homes to the Moroccan casbah and modern city apartments, in which aspects of discomfort – the physical lack of well-being – are tolerated and accepted. In so doing, he also unravels the myths of modern comfort.

The Future of Post-Human Criminality: A Preface to a New Theory of Heroes and Villains.
  Baofu, Peter/ 9781907343360/ Price:£ 50.00
 
this book offers an alternative (better) way to understand the future of criminality, especially in the dialectic context of heroes and villains-while learning from different approaches in the literature but without favoring any one of them (nor integrating them, since they are not necessarily compatible with each other). In other words, this book offers a new theory (that is, the reflective theory of criminality) to go beyond the existing approaches in a novel way.
   
Arthur Schopenhauer.
  Lewis, Peter B./ 9781780230214/ Price:£ 11.99
 
Schopenhauer’s philosophy has always held a special attraction for those who wonder about life’s meaning, as well as those interested in music, literature and the visual arts. Illustrated with portraits and photographs of Schopenhauer, and his family and contemporaries, Arthur Schopenhauer will engage all those readers, as well as students and scholars of Schopenhauer and nineteenth-century philosophy.
   
Karl Marx.
  Thomas, Paul/ 9781861899064/ Price:£ 11.99
 
In Karl Marx, Paul Thomas introduces the reader to Marx’s life and writings, to show how each cast light on the other. Concise yet detailed, Thomas concentrates directly on Marx’s nineteenth-century life and works to give a clear, precise guide to Marx’s own thought and action. The book relates Marx’s development as a critical thinker and revolutionary politician to events that took place in his own lifetime, events that strongly influenced his doctrines. A cogent, jargon-free introduction, Karl Marx welcomes those new to Marx’s life and work, as well as having much to say to students and scholars of political theory and history.

WA214 十種影響中華民國建立的書刊3 新民說
  梁啟超著/ 9789868754911/ Price:NT$ 280.00
 
Book Cover 梁啟超(1873-1929)撰寫於1902年至1905年間的《新民說》,義蘊豐厚,發人深省,即便歷經百年的考驗,仍然是20世紀中國思想史的經典之作。 十九世紀中葉以來,帝國主義帶給中國的威脅,曾無已時。梁啟超從世界歷史的趨勢著眼,結合西方現代文明與中國傳統智慧,申論中國如何以「新民」之道,回應帝國主義的侵略,開啟中國文明的再生契機。即令梁啟超理解的西方現代文明,很大部分是透過日本思想界的詮釋,不免沾染幾許東瀛色調,卻完全無損於全書盎然文采裡的說服力,影響深遠。如胡適(1891-1962)早在民國初建之際,就贊譽梁啟超是「吾國革命第一大功臣,其功在革新吾國之思想界」;胡適日後也回憶感念梁啟超一桿健筆的恩澤,表示《新民說》讓青年時代的他真是「震盪感動」不已。 今日重行閱讀《新民說》,正可以讓我們對於推動辛亥革命的思想力量,有更多面向的認知。在追求實踐一個理想的中華民國的道路上,梁啟超對如何打造現代國民的關懷論說,仍有無限的啟發意義。
   
VA06-198 Philosophy and Gender, 4-Vols/Set.
  Heyes, Cressida J./ 9780415571142/ Price:£ 830.00
 
Edited by Cressida J. Heyes, it is a four-volume collection of foundational and the very best cutting-edge scholarship. It features critical analysis of gender as it relates to philosophy of mind and language, epistemology, metaphysics, logic, ethics, social and political thought, aesthetics, and philosophy of science; it is also distinctive in showing how feminist thought has been intertwined in both analytic and continental traditions. The collection reconfigures 'gender and philosophy' into an integrated field of inquiry while providing an invaluable resource for scholars in all disciplines who need to know how to think critically about gender. In so doing it responds to recent curriculum developments, while providing a crucial reference guide for theoretically minded scholars across the humanities and social sciences. Supplemented with a full index, and including an introduction, newly written by the editor, which places the assembled materials in their historical and intellectual context, Philosophy and Gender is destined to be valued by scholars and students as a vital research resource.

this book provides an alternative (better) way to understand the future of humor, especially in the dialectic context of joking and laughing-while learning from different approaches in the literature but without favoring any one of them (nor integrating them, since they are not necessarily compatible with each other). Thus, this book offers a new theory (that is, the metamorphic theory of humor) to go beyond the existing approaches in the literature on humor in a novel way.

Simone Weil.
  Yourgrau, Palle/ 9781861897985/ Price:£ 11.99
 
Simone Weil, legendary French philosopher, mystic and political activist who died in England in 1943 at the age of thirty-four, belongs to a select group of thinkers: as with St Augustine, Pascal and Nietzsche, so with Weil a single phrase can permanently change one’s life. In this book, Palle Yourgrau follows Weil on her life's journey, from her philosophical studies at the E'cole Normale Supe'rieure, to her years as a Marxist labour organizer, her explosive encounter with Leon Trotsky, her abortive attempt to fight against Franco in the Spanish Civil War, her mystical experience in the town of Assisi. We see how Weil's struggle to make sense of a world consumed by despotism and war culminated in her monumental attempt, following St Augustine, to re-imagine Christianity along Platonistic lines, to find a bridge between human suffering and divine perfection. How seriously, however, should Weil's ideas be taken? They were admired by Albert Camus and T. S. Eliot, yet Susan Sontag wrote famously that ‘I can't imagine more than a handful of the tens of thousands of readers she has won . . . really share her ideas.’ If this is really true, Palle Yourgrau must count as one of the handful. Though he brings to life the pathos of Weil's tragi-comic journey, Yourgrau devotes equal attention to the question of truth. He shines a bright light on the paradox of Simone Weil: at once a kind of modern saint, and a be^te noire, a Jew accused of having abandoned her own people in their hour of greatest need. The result is a critical biography that is in places as disturbing as Weil's own writings, an account that confronts head-on her controversial critique of the Hebrew Bible, as well as her radical rejection of the received wisdom that the Resurrection lies at the heart of Christianity.
   
VA06-197 History of Continental Philosophy, The., 8-Vols/Set.
  Schrift, Alan D./ 9781844652198/ Price:£ 565.00
 
Beginning with Kant and the earliest responses to his critical philosophy and ending with the latest developments in continental thinking across a range of disciplines, these volumes present the first coherent and comprehensive history of the continental tradition of philosophy. Divided, chronologically and thematically, into eight volumes, The History of Continental Philosophy is an indispensable resource for anyone conducting research or teaching in philosophy and related fields in the humanities and social sciences where the influence of continental theory has been widespread. Alan Schrift has brought together an internationally renowned team of volume editors and contributors to provide an unrivalled analysis of the complex and interconnected history of continental philosophy that will become a reference point for all future work in the field. Accessible to both student and scholar, the contributions offer both original insight and masterly synthesis and together represent a major statement on the nature and meaning of the continental tradition in philosophy. It is a landmark publication in the history of ideas.
   
VA06-175 Confucian Studies, 4-Vols/Set.
  Yao, Xinzhong/ 9780415452151/ Price:£ 790.00
 
To some extent Confucianism can be broadly said to have started with the teaching of Confucius (551-479BC) who focused on how to restore moral and political order through education and ritual performance, although he did not see himself as the founder of a new moment, nor did he elaborate a systematic religious or philosophical doctrine. Several centuries after his death, he was elevated to the position of the Perfect Sage and Ancient Teacher (zhisheng xianshi), and gradually became one of the focuses in state sacrifices. In this way Confucianism became part of the state religion or ideology addressing the needs of government, community, family, and the self, and dominated intellectual and social life for more than 2,000 years in China, and, to a lesser extent, in other parts of East Asia. While having substantially declined in political and social influence, Confucianism was revived by leading intellectuals (so-called Modern New Confucians) in the twentieth century to deal with perennial problems facing modern people and society. It is against this background that Confucian Studies has become an increasingly important subject taught in universities and colleges in North America, Europe, East Asia, and Australia. With more and more universities and colleges offering courses on or relating to Confucian philosophy, ethics, religion, and politics, this new collection from Routledge answers the urgent need for a source book in contemporary Confucian Studies. Volume I ('Reassessing Confucian Traditions') covers Confucianism in History and the focus of Volume II is on 'Reinterpreting Confucian Ideas'. Volume III is titled 'Reconstructing Confucian Ethics', while the final volume in the collection brings the best scholarship on 'Reappraising Confucian Ideals'.
   
VA06-173 Philosophy of Mind, 4-Vols/Set.
  Crawford, Sean/ 9780415471916/ Price:£ 860.00
 
Philosophy of Mind is concerned with fundamental issues about the relation between mind and body and mind and world, and with the nature of the diverse variety of mental phenomena, such as thought, self-knowledge, consciousness, perception, sensation, and emotion. Philosophers of mind explore some of the most perplexing questions about our mental lives. For instance: * How exactly is the mental related to the physical? * How is it that our thoughts can reach out to reality and refer to objects distant in time and space? * What is consciousness? Can it be explained by science? * How is thought related to language? * Can animals think? * Is there some one thing, some special property, that all mental phenomena share that distinguishes them from non-mental phenomena? * To what extent has the computer helped us to understand the nature of mind? * Does emotion play a larger role in our rationality that has previously been thought? For as long as humanity has sought an understanding of its place in the universe, philosophy of mind has been at the centre of philosophy, but it flourishes now as it has never done before. This new title in the Routledge’s Major Works series, Critical Concepts in Philosophy, meets the need for an authoritative reference work to make sense of the subject’s enormous literature and the continuing explosion in research output. Edited by Sean Crawford, a prominent scholar in the field, it is a four-volume collection of classic and contemporary contributions to all of the major debates in philosophy of mind. With comprehensive introductions to each volume, newly written by the editor, which place the collected material in its historical and intellectual context, Philosophy of Mind is an essential work of reference and is destined to be valued by philosophers of mind—as well as those working in allied areas such as metaphysics, epistemology, and philosophy of language; and cognate disciplines such as psychology—as a vital research tool.

VA06-176 Friedrich Nietzsche, 6-Vols/Set.
  / 9780415561495/ Price:£ 520.00
 
This six-volume Routledge Library Edition set is dedicated to the work of key nineteenth-century German thinker, Friedrich Nietzsche, whose hugely influential work in the field of philosophy continues to be felt to this day. The six volumes, published between 1948 and 1988, represent a truly wide-ranging analysis of Nietzsche’s life and work, offering an excellent overview of the canon of critical analysis and interpretation on Nietzsche in the twentieth century. The collection covers Nietzsche’s perspectives and influence upon a variety of sociological and philosophical debates, as well as placing his work in the context of contemporaries such as Richard Wagner, Fyodor Dostoyevsky and Max Stirner.
   
VA06-174 Richard Rorty, 4-Vols/Set.
  Tartaglia, James/ 9780415490047/ Price:£ 830.00
 
Richard Rorty (1931–2007) remains one of the contemporary world’s most influential thinkers. He has been a major figure in philosophy ever since the publication of his first important paper, ‘Mind-Body Identity, Privacy, and Categories’ in 1965, but it was the release of his seminal Philosophy and the Mirror of Nature (1979) that caused the literature on his work to expand exponentially, a process which has accelerated since his death in 2007; scores of new articles and books about Rorty appear every year, and even his biography has proved to be an academic bestseller. Rorty’s enduring appeal has a number of sources. One is the scope and urgency of his views, for he was never shy about presenting his call for the abandonment of objective truth against the grand backdrop of the cultural progress of the West. Another is that his views were highly controversial, and yet could not be easily dismissed, since Rorty was able to claim with some plausibility that he was simply drawing out the consequences of positions developed by his more conventionally respectable peers. And another is that Rorty applied his views to a wide range of topical concerns outside of academic philosophy. For these and many other reasons, philosophers to this day line up to refute him, students read Rorty before the philosophers he discusses, and non-philosophy academics produce a continuous stream of articles applying his views to their own interests.

VA06-171 Philosophy of Time, 4-Vols/Set.
  Oaklander, L. Nathan/ 9780415437271/ Price:£ 800.00
 
What is the nature of temporal passage-the movement of events or moments of time from the future through the present into the past? Is the future and the past as real as the present, or is the present-or perhaps the present and the past-all that exists? What role, if any, does language play in giving us an insight into temporal reality? Is it possible to travel through time into distant regions of the future or the past? What accounts for the direction of time, the sense we have that we are moving toward the future and not back into the past? What is the relation between the physics of time and the philosophy of time? These are the kind of dizzying questions that have been addressed by metaphysicians since antiquity, and time has remained a critical concept for many thinkers and philosophers since then (for instance, in his Confessions, St Augustine, restating an observation by Plotinus, wrote: 'So what is time? If no one asks me, I know; if I seek to explain it, I do not'). Interest in the subject has also been enduring-and has blossomed anew in the past century. The Philosophy of Time is a new title in the Routledge series, Critical Concepts in Philosophy. It meets the need for an authoritative reference work to make sense of the subject's vast literature and the continuing explosion in research output. Edited by L. Nathan Oaklander, a leading scholar in the philosophy of time, this new Major Work from Routledge brings together in four volumes the canonical and the very best cutting-edge scholarship in the field to provide a synoptic view of all the key issues and current debates. With a comprehensive introduction to the collection, newly written by the editor, which places the collected material in its historical and intellectual context, The Philosophy of Time is an essential work of reference and is destined to be valued by philosophers of time-as well as those working in related areas of philosophy of science, philosophy of mind, and philosophy of religion-as a vital research resource.
   
VA06-166 Philosophy of Language, 4-Vols/Set.
  Martinich, A. P./ 9780415434713/ Price:£ 830.00
 
What do ‘meaning’ and ‘truth’ mean? And how are they situated in the concrete practices of linguistic communication? What is the relationship between words and the world? How—with words—can people do such varied things as marry, inaugurate a president, and declare a country’s independence? How is language able to express knowledge, belief, and other mental states? What are metaphors and how do they work? Is a mathematically rigorous account of language possible? Does language make women invisible and encode a male worldview? These are the kind of questions that have been addressed by philosophers of language since ancient times. Interest in the subject stretches back to the beginnings of western philosophy (for instance, in his Academy, Plato considered the question whether the names of things were deemed by convention or by nature). Interest in the philosophy of language has also been enduring—and has blossomed anew in the past century. This new title in the Routledge series, Critical Concepts in Philosophy, meets the need for an authoritative reference work to make sense of the subject’s vast literature and the continuing explosion in research output. Edited by A. P. Martinich, one of the subdiscipline’s leading scholars, this collection brings together in four volumes the canonical and the very best cutting-edge scholarship in the field to provide a synoptic view of all the key issues, figures, concepts, and current debates. With comprehensive introductions to each volume, newly written by the editor, which place the collected material in its historical and intellectual context, Philosophy of Language is an essential work of reference and is destined to be valued by philosophers and linguists—as well as psychologists and cognitive scientists working on language—as a vital research resource.
   
VA06-165 Metaethics, 4-Vols/Set.
  Shafer-Landau, Russ/ 9780415439206/ Price:£ 845.00
 
Over the past thirty years, there has been a great surge of interest in metaethics. Almost every university offers courses in this area; new philosophical societies have formed that focus on metaethical issues; and an ever-increasing number of books and research articles attest to the growing interest in the field. Metaethics flourishes now as it has never done before and this new title in the Routledge series, Critical Concepts in Philosophy, meets the need for an authoritative reference work to make sense of the subject's vast literature and the continuing explosion in research output. Edited by Russ Shafer-Landau, a prominent scholar in the field, this new Routledge Major Work is a four-volume collection of classic and contemporary contributions that cover all of the major issues in metaethics. The first of the four volumes is dedicated to the historical antecedents of current metaethical thinking. The second volume covers the central theories within metaethics. The third and fourth volumes bring together the most important thinking on all of the key questions that are the focus of contemporary research in metaethics. Together, the four volumes provide a one-stop resource for all interested researchers, teachers, and students to gain a thorough understanding of from where this thriving subdiscipline has emerged, and where it is today. With a large, comprehensive introduction, newly written by the editor, which place the collected material in its historical and intellectual context, Metaethics is an essential work of reference and is destined to be valued by metaethicists-as well as those working in allied areas such as metaphysics, epistemology, philosophy of language, and philosophy of mind-as a vital research tool.
   
VA06-164 Metaphysics, 5-Vols/Set.
  Rea, Michael C./ 9780415397513/ Price:£ 890.00
 
Metaphysics, at least roughly speaking, is the systematic investigation of fundamental presuppositions underlying commonsense and scientific views of the world. Most of us believe that we have bodies and minds, that we are free, that some things in the world are composed of other things and that these things interact causally with one another; we believe that, in addition to the "way things are", there are other ways things could have been, and so on. Common sense tells us that things change and time passes, but contemporary physics tells us (or seems to tell us) that past, present, and future are somehow metaphysically on a par-that the past isn't "gone" and the future is "already" real. Common sense and science both take it for granted that the world is governed by laws, and that the laws in some sense represent how things must go in the world (as opposed simply to telling us how they in fact happen to go). Metaphysicians investigate all of these assumptions, and more. They ask what it is to be a body or a mind, and what the relation between body and mind might be; they ask what freedom consists in, and whether freedom is possible; they ask about the nature and possibility of causation, change, and the passage of time; they try to figure out what it takes to be a law of nature and whether the laws of nature might be necessary or contingent; and so on. This four-volume collection will gather together many of the most important classic and contemporary writings on these and other central topics in metaphysics. Unlike some of the other collections in this series, the classic writings will not occupy their own volume (or even their own section); rather, they will be sprinkled throughout as appropriate to the topics under consideration. Below is a tentative list of volume-titles, along with select tentative section headings (to give some indication of the topics that will be covered in each volume).
   
VA06-163 Companion to Hume, A.
  Radcliffe, Elizabeth S./ 9781405114554/ Price:US$ 239.95
 
David Hume's revolutionary philosophies took an empirical approach to the study of human nature. Controversial in his time, he was accused of everything from atheism to moral corruption; he has since been recognized as one of the foremost thinkers of the late modern period, influencing the thought of nearly every philosopher in his wake. The arguments presented in his writings have survived three centuries of varying perspectives, and have had a lasting influence on the philosophy of mind, knowledge, religion, action, morality, economics, and politics. A Companion to Hume is the optimal resource for the study of one of history's most remarkable thinkers, demonstrating the range of Hume's work and illuminating the ongoing debates that they have generated. Comprised of twenty-nine expertly commissioned essays addressing such expansive topics of knowledge, passion, morality, religion, economics, and politics, this collection examines the paradoxes of Hume's thought and his legacy, covering the methods, themes, and consequences of his contributions to philosophy.
   
SA06-380 A Philosophy of Fear.
  Svendsen, Lars/ 9781861894045/ Price:£ 16.95
 
Svendsen delves into science, politics, sociology and literature to explore the nature of fear. He discusses the biology behind the emotion, from the neuroscience underlying our ‘fight or flight’ instinct to how fear induces us to take irrational actions in our attempts to minimize risk. The book then turns to the political and social realms, investigating the role of fear in the philosophies of Machiavelli and Hobbes, the rise of the modern ‘risk society’, and how fear has eroded social trust. The political use of fear in the ongoing ‘War on Terror’ also comes under Svendsen’s probing gaze, as he investigates whether we can ever disentangle ourselves from the continual state of alarm that defines our age. Svendsen ultimately argues for the possibility of a brighter, less fearful future that is marked by a triumph of humanist optimism. An incisive and thought-provoking meditation, A Philosophy of Fear pulls back the curtain that shrouds dangers both imagined and real, forcing us to confront our fears and why we hold to them.

Ludwig Wittgenstein.
  Kanterian, Edward/ 9781861893208/ Price:£ 11.99
 
Kanterian also presents a careful account of Wittgenstein’s notoriously abstract philosophical works, from his early masterpiece Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus (1921) to the Philosophical Investigations, published posthumously in 1953. The author makes Wittgenstein’s work comprehensible to lay readers, as well as offering original interpretations that further illuminate the writings. Emerging from the highly sophisticated Viennese upper class at the turn of the last century, Wittgenstein had intellectual and artistic aspirations going far beyond theoretical philosophy. In particular he took great interest in art and music, and during his entire lifetime was deeply tormented by ethical and religious questions. There is something about Wittgenstein’s life and persona, the author believes, that captivates our collective imagination and seems to offer answers to the ethical problems of our own time. Kanterian sees Wittgenstein’s life as the focal point of important conflicts and tensions of an entire age.
   
VB01-32 Philosophy of Law, 4-Vols/Set.
  Bix, Brian/ 9780415342131/ Price:£ 850.00
 
The four volumes of the collection are divided into six parts. Part one brings together key work on the methodology of analytical philosophy and Part two collects the most important scholarship on forms of legal positivism, including material in the Austin - Hart tradition, 'inclusive vs. exclusive legal positivism' and Kelsenian legal positivism. Part three ('Critics of Legal Positivism') gathers material in the natural-law tradition; the work and influence of Lon Fuller and Ronald Dworkin are also fully explored here. Parts four to six are an assembly of the best and most important thinking by and about normative and critical theorists working outside the analytical tradition. Part four gathers material under the rubric of legal realism, exploring both the American and Scandinavian schools as well as their predecessors. Part five examines one of the most influential movements in modern legal theory and legal practice: known as 'law and economics' or the 'economic analysis of law', this approach has come to dominate American scholarship, and its role is growing in other countries too. Finally, part six makes available key research on a variety of critical theories of law that have grown up around systematic critiques of Western legal systems. Included here is work by the American legal realists, as well as work by feminists and scholars pursuing critical race theory. The intersection of law and literature is also examined, as are other approaches to law and legal theory: Habermas's 'proceduralist paradigm'; the concept of 'autopoiesis'; and the work of Rorty and Fish.
   
VA37-17 Women and Romanticism, 5-Vols/Set.
  Eberle, Roxanne/ 9780415342186/ Price:£ 995.00
 
Demonstrating the breadth and scope of women's writing in the Romantic period, this collection covers a variety of topics ranging across polemical treatises, private correspondence, philosophical and historical disquisitions, and poetry and prose fiction. Helping to contextualise the areas discussed, the collection includes a general introduction by the editor, which traces the history of criticism in the field, and thus current definitions of "Women and Romanticism", before going on to discuss the contents of each volume.
   
VA17-35 Islamic Philosophy and Theology, 4-Vols/Set.
  Netton, Ian Richard/ 9780415343930/ Price:£ 935.00
 
Islam, one of the world’s great faiths, was born as a result of the revelation of the Qur’an to the Prophet Muhammad (c. 570-632) in Arabia. A proper understanding of the Islamic present depends on an accurate knowledge of the way in which Islamic thought developed from medieval times onwards. For instance, Islam evolved a sophisticated theology and set of philosophical systems of its own, which owed something to the impact of Greek thought, but became uniquely Islamic because of the vital presence within that faith of the Qur’an. Furthermore, Islam soon came into contact with Greek philosophy and science, and a translation movement into Arabic began. The roles of Kason and Revelation, and the primacy that was to be given to one or the other, came to the fore. Problems which had also vexed Christianity such as anthropomorphism, free will and predestination provided intellectual stimulation for Islamic thinkers, while the mystical impulse, articulated in Islamic Sufism, imbued the writings of several of the theologians and philosophers considered in these volumes. Taken together, all of these issues constitute a golden period of Islamic debate and intellectual inquiry, and the articles collected in this fascinating set reflect that Islamic dynamic.
   
VA06-156 Merleau Ponty, 4-Vols/Set.
  Toadvine, Ted/ 9780415363990/ Price:£ 850.00
 
Maurice Merleau-Ponty (1908-1961) has been hailed by many as the greatest French thinker of the twentieth century. As one of the founding members of the existentialist movement in the 1940s, he played a key role in introducing the work of Husserl and Heidegger into French thought and collaborated with Jean-Paul Sartre in the founding of Les Temps Modernes. His later work laid the foundation for the development of French thought in the direction of post-structuralism and post-modernism. Merleau-Ponty: Critical Assessments of Leading Philosophers gathers together the best critical writing on Merleau-Ponty’s work from the last half century. The collection includes early reviews of his work and the reactions of his contemporaries both during and after his life. Also covered are examinations of his relationship with Husserl, Sartre and the phenomenological tradition, investigations of key themes from his work on ontology, expression and politics, and the ongoing application of his thinking to such contemporary areas of interest as feminist theory, psychology and child development, environmental philosophy and cognitive science.
   
VA06-150 Cambridge School of Pragmatism, The., 4-Vols/Set.
  Tienne, Andre De/ 9781843711476/ Price:£ 550.00
 
Cambridge pragmatism was recognizably different from the instrumentalism of Dewey's Chicago school. Until James's death in 1910, commentators on pragmatism typically either wrote about James's pragmatism or Dewey's instrumentalism, but not both. Only until the 1910s did many philosophers begin to treat pragmatism as a fairly unified set of doctrines. This change in standpoint is reflected in the organization of the sets and volumes. This first set only contains writings about Peirce, James, or other Cambridge pragmatists. Writings on pragmatism in general, which began to make more frequent appearance after 1910, will be collected in another set, Critical Studies on Pragmatism. * New collection bringing together the important non-book literature surrounding Peirce, James, and the other Cambridge pragmatists for the first time * All materials are reset, annotated and enhanced by new editorial introductions and name and subject indexes * Obscure, rare and hard-to-find original materials
   
VA06-136 German Idealism, 4-Vols/Set.
  Brinkmann, Klaus/ 9780415344173/ Price:£ 800.00
 
German Idealism represents one of the most intense and ambitious periods in the history of philosophy, the phase of a radical overhaul of previous philosophical methodologies and a critical assessment of the limits of metaphysical thought as well as the period of its greatest blossoming. Alongside Continental Rationalism and British Empiricism, German Idealism stands as a paradigmatic form of philosophy,and may also be viewed as the culmination of the entire tradition of the history of philosophy. German Idealism thus constitutes a highly visible topic in contemporary philosophical research and discussion. This collection is a timely assessment of the critical reactions to and philosophical ideas engendered by this important period. The set includes a new introduction by the editor, as well as smaller section introductions, exploring and contextualising the main themes of the selections included. It also includes an index.
   
VA06-132 John Locke, 2nd Series, 4-Vols/Set.
  Anstey, Peter R./ 9780415350549/ Price:£ 765.00
 
Today, John Locke is recognized as one of the most important and formative philosophical influences on the modern world. His imprint is still felt in political and legal thought, in educational theory, moral theory and in the theory of knowledge. Locke's key works, Two Treatises of Government, and the monumental An Essay Concerning Human Understanding, provoked lively debate when they were first published in 1690 and remain standard texts in undergraduate philosophy courses throughout the English-speaking world and beyond. It is not surprising therefore that Locke scholarship is a burgeoning force in the history of philosophy and that his ideas and arguments are repeatedly alluded to in current philosophical debate. Indeed, since the publication of the first series of Locke: Critical Assessments in 1991, Locke research has proceeded apace, and it is now fitting that a second Critical Assessments series be published. Of particular importance in recent work on Locke has been research into the colonial contexts of his political writings; a more nuanced and historically grounded approach to Locke’s writings on natural philosophy; and a theological turn in Locke scholarship that has centred on the content and reception of his The Reasonableness of Christianity. Each of these new trends is represented in this second series, as are recent contributions to long-standing debates concerning Lockean interpretation and influence.
   
VA05-213 Routledge Library Editions: Weber, 8-Vols/Set.
  / 9780415402101/ Price:£ 860.00
 
Max Weber (1894-1920) is generally recognized as one of the founding fathers of modern sociology. This collection pays homage to his continuing influence, not just within sociology, but also political theory, science and religion. The books carefully chosen for this collection provide an overview of all his most important ideas. They are critically assessed and analyzed to gain a real comprehension of his life's work.
   
VA05-212 Rational Choice Theory, 5-Vols/Set.
  Allingham, Michael/ 9780415357517/ Price:£ 905.00
 
Although the roots of rational choice theory can be found in Aristotle, the more explicit treatment of the subject originates in the middle of the twentieth century. Building on these foundations, this collection brings together the most important contributions to the diverse literature on rational choice in five easily accessible and coherently organized volumes. Setting out the basis of the subject, volume one analyzes the problem of pure choice. This is taken further in the second volume, which explores the problem of rational choice when uncertainty is of the essence. Volume three considers strategic choice, and volume four changes the emphasis from the ideal to the possible – from perfect rationality to bounded rationality. Taking a different approach, the final volume analyzes the problem of group choice. A highly comprehensive and important collection, Rational Choice Theory is a valuable resource for student and scholar alike
   
VA05-195 Structuralism, 4-Vols/Set.
  Culler, Jonathan/ 9780415340892/ Price:£ 770.00
 
Structuralism is a broad intellectual movement in the humanities and social sciences that came to prominence in the 1960s. Representing the beginning of modern interdisciplinary work in what has come to be called "theory", it seeks not to explain the meaning of an object or event but to understand what made it possible. Taking as their methodological model the successes of the structural linguistics inaugurated by Ferdinand de Saussure, a group of thinkers in such fields as anthropology, literary and cultural studies, sociology and philosophy developed ambitious programs for the interdisciplinary study of the systems by which human beings make the world intelligible. Organized thematically, this four-volume collection explores the key areas of structuralism - and with a new introduction by the editor to guide the reader through the work, this is an essential collection of articles that provides a valuable research resource.
   
VA05-169 Jean-Francois Lyotard, 3-Vols/Set.
  Taylor, Victor E./ 9780415338196/ Price:£ 665.00
 
Jean-Francois Lyotard's importance to contemporary philosophy cannot be overstated. Often associated with the concept of 'postmodernism,' Lyotard, along with Jacques Derrida, Michel Foucault, and Gilles Deleuze, was a central figure in the 'theory debates' during the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s. His writings across the disciplines strongly influenced the current shape of contemporary continental philosophy and critical theory, with his posthumously published books and essays having a significant influence on current scholarly debates. Lyotard's contributions to contemporary continental philosophy are many, with critical concepts such as differend, meta-narratives, little-narratives, pagan aesthetics, and parology becoming permanent entries in the postmodern lexicon. While much remains to be explored in his arguments and theoretical propositions, it is his later philosophico-poetics that may be his enduring legacy.

VC02-45 Business Ethics, 3-Vols/Set.
  Allhoff, Fritz/ 9781412902540/ Price:£ 475.00
 
Business Ethics is a three volume collection which provides students and researchers with the historically most important of the classic articles in business ethics, as well as the best of the contemporary and trendsetting work in this burgeoning area. The collection will serve as a sourcebook for academics and researchers entering or already established in the area of business ethics. The editors bring together a breadth of articles across business ethics, with an orientation that is diverse as well as international. The three volumes are well organized to focus on the main topics in business ethics and are divided into Corporate Social Responsibility , the Employee-employer Relationship, and Distributive Justice & Dilemmas. Courses and research programmes in Business Ethics have multiplied in recent years alongside a growing concern with the ethical practices of business. This multi-volumed work provides a focused and well-balanced reference for academics and their students to acquire a thorough understanding of this now central topic.
   
VB02-124 Jean-Jacques Rousseau, 4-Vols/Set.
  Scott, John T./ 9780415350839/ Price:£ 995.00
 
Jean-Jacques Rousseau (1712-1778) was a pivotal thinker in the history of political philosophy, and in that of thought and literature more generally. Making major contributions in a variety of areas, he brought his political theory to bear on subjects such as the novel, music, education, and autobiography, amongst others. Bringing together critical assessments of the broad range of Rousseau?s thought, with a particular emphasis on his political theory, this important collection includes translations of a number of influential interpretations of Rousseau?s work that were not previously available in English and were prepared especially for this set, such as those of Lanson, de Jouvenal, Weil, Wahl, and Baczko. Organized thematically, and including an initial new introduction by the editor, as well as brief introductions to each individual volume, this systematic collection is undoubtedly an essential resource for a wide variety of students and scholars.
   
VA17-43 Encyclopedia of Religion and Nature, 2-Vols/Set.
  Taylor, Bron/ 9781843711384/ Price:£ 375.00
 
In the new millennium, as environmental alarm has escalated, so has interest and concern about the role of religion in nature. Much of the thinking has involved a hope for a 'greening' of religion – i.e. that religion might promote environmentally-protective action. Many believe that this 'greening' of religion is a prerequisite for solving the world's social and environmental problems. Curiosity regarding the relationships between human culture, religion and the wider natural world, however, goes beyond such curiosity. The ERN represents an intensive effort to broaden the inquiry and asks the fundamental question: What are the relationships between Homo sapiens, their diverse religions, and the earth's living systems? The answers are difficult and complex, intertwined with and complicated by a host of social, environmental, and religious variables. The goal of the ERN is to explore this question in a way that illuminates these relationships without engaging in wishful thinking, irrational pessimism, or the tendency to oversimplify the dynamic, sometimes rapidly evolving relations between humans, their religions, and the natural world. Encyclopedia of Religion and Nature shows convincingly that religion has a great deal to do with nature, nature a great deal to do with religion, and both have everything to do with the planetary future.
   
VA06-135 Hannah Arendt, 4-Vols/Set.
  Williams, Gareth/ 9780415343305/ Price:£ 840.00
 
Hannah Arendt (1906-1975) is increasingly recognised as one of the most important political thinkers of the twentieth century. She gained fame for her historical study of totalitarianism, notoriety for her reportage of Adolf Eichman's trial, and philosophical recognition for her explorations of (political) action and her critique of the Western tradition of political thought from Plato to Marx. She is likely to be the first woman to join the canon of the great philosophers. Arendt's work has attracted a huge volume of scholarship. Especially in the USA, but also in Germany, France and the UK, where further scholarly work is emerging at an increasing pace. Given that there was vigorous debate of her work in her lifetime, that there have since been several waves of evaluation and re-evaluation, and because a new generation of scholars is now coming to her work, a systematic collection of the critical assessments of her thought is extremely timely. Volume I. Arendt as political theorist Volume II. Arendt as political philosopher Volume III. Arendt as philosopher

VA06-133 Umberto Eco, 3-Vols/Set.
  Gane, Mike/ 9781412901741/ Price:£ 475.00
 
Umberto Eco is arguably best known for his novel The Name of the Rose yet there is much more to him than simply being an exemplary novelist. Semiotician, literary and media critic, philosopher and historian, Umberto Eco is one of the greatest and most original thinkers working today. He has contributed to many fields and is one of a handful of writers who can claim to be a key public intellectual in Europe. This has made it extraordinarily difficult for commentators to place him in the Western tradition of social thought. This is especially so, because there is a playful quality in his work, exemplified above all by his use of skills and techniques from semiotics, the philosophy of language, medieval life and thought and aesthetics and techniques that he employed to great affect in The Name of the Rose. He has also made seminal contributions in thinking on postmodern developments in culture and epistemology. This collection provides an unrivalled overview of his writings and includes a selection from considerations of his contribution to semiotics, literary theory, philosophy of language, the analysis of fiction and narratives, his novels, his critiques of mass culture and communication and his contributions to the theory of laughter, politics and ethics. The result is the most complete assessment of Eco's contribution and its impact on social, cultural and critical thought. Mike Gane is Professor of Sociology at the University of Loughborough; Nicholas Gane is Senior Lecturer in Sociology and Communications at Brunel University, London.
   
VA06-128 Free Will, 4-Vols/Set.
  Fischer, Jonathan/ 9780415327268/ Price:£ 950.00
 
Over the last three decades there has been a tremendous amount of philosophical work in the Anglo-American tradition on the cluster of topics pertaining to Free Will. Of course, this work has in many instances built on and extended the historical treatments of this great area of philosophical interest. The issues range from fairly abstract philosophical questions about the logic of arguments about human freedom (and its relationship to prior predictability of our choices and actions, or God's foreknowledge, or causal determinism and scientific explanation) to more concrete practical questions about legal and criminal accountability. The contemporary work has in some instances been in the form of lively debates between proponents of different viewpoints, and the literature is characterized by a genuine vitality. Work has appeared in a wide variety of different places: academic and (and even trade) monographs, anthologies, philosophical and legal academic journals, and conference proceedings. This collection selects the very best of this material and presents it in a single, accessible set of volumes.

VA06-126 Gottlob Frege, 4-Vols/Set.
  Beaney, Mike/ 9780415306010/ Price:£ 910.00
 
Gottlob Frege (1848-1925) taught at the University of Jena for thirty years, scarcely known outside a small circle of professional mathematicians and philosophers. However, later in the twentieth century he came to be recognized as someone who, in demonstrating the affinity of logic with mathematics, laid the foundations for modern philosophy of language and modern logic. Frege regarded logic as the foundation for philosophy. In so doing he instigated a radical change in the stance of the majority of Western philosophers whose main pre-occupation had been with the nature of logic rather than logic. Frege's influence can be seen in the work of the logical positivists of the early twentieth century and in much of Ludwig Wittgenstein's philosophy. This collection brings together recent scholarship on Frege, including new translations of German material, made available to Anglophone scholars for the first time. Volume I: Frege's Philosophy in Context Volume II: Frege's Philosophy of Logic Volume III: Frege's Philosophy of Mathematics Volume IV: Frege's Philosophy of Thought and Language

VA03-103-6 Chuang Tzu.
  Giles, Herbert A./ 9780415361507/ Price:£ 205.00
 
Chuang Tzu was to Lao Tzu, the author of Tao Te Ching, as Hui-neng, the sixth Patriarch of Zen Buddhism, was to Bodhidharma, and in some respects St.Paul to Jesus; he expanded the original teaching into a system and was thus the founder of Tao-ism. Whereas Lao Tzu was a contemporary of Confucius in the sixth century B.C, Chuang Tzu lived over two hundred years later. He was one of the greatest minds produced by China; philosopher, metaphysician, moralist and poet. It is impossible to understand the spiritual depth of the Tao Te Ching without the aid of Chuang Tzu.

VA03-103-40 Sociology and Socialism in Contemporary China.
  Wong, Siu-lun/ 9780415361842/ Price:£ 205.00
 
Sociology flourished in China during the 1930s and 1940s but with the establishment of the People's Republic of China, controversies arose over the place of sociology in the process of socialist construction.

  Waley, Arthur/ 9780415361804/ Price:£ 205.00
 
This book consists chiefly of extracts from Chuang Tzu, Mencius and Han Fei Tzu. Chuang Tzu's appeal is to the imagination; the appeal of mencius is to the moral feelings; realism, as expounded by Han Fei Tzu, finds a close parallel in modern Totalitarianism and as a result these extracts from a book of the third century B.C. nonetheless have a very contemporary connection.
   
VA03-103-28 Analects of Confucius.
  Waley, Arthur/ 9780415361729/ Price:£ 205.00
 
Previous translations of the Analects of Confucius are based upon a medieval interpretation which reflects the philosophy of the 12th century A.D rather than of the 5th century B.C., when Confucius lived. This book detaches the Analects from the Scholastic interpretation and lets these famous sayings speak for themselves.

  Hsu, Leonard Shihlien/ 9780415361545/ Price:£ 205.00
 
One of the most astonishing features of the Confucian teaching to the modern reader is its anticipation of the Spencerian formula of evolution and its adaptation of this to a programme of progress. This volume shows that Confucius' teaching is still relevant in many of its features, not merely for China but also for the West.

It traces his career, which took him from a comfortable provincial background to the pinnacle of the French academic system, in terms of the networks of friendship and the relations of power that sustained it. Macey concludes that Foucault was a very good and successful strategist and campaigner and that his association with certain periodicals and journals at certain periods was not a matter of chance, but reflected strategic alliances that were formed within a political-cultural field in constant motion.
   
SA05-310 The Encyclopedia of Stupidity.
  Boxsel, Matthijs V./ 9781861892317/ Price:£ 15.99

But Van Boxsel wants to do more than just assemble a ‘shadow cabinet’ of wisdom; he tries to fathom the logic of this opposite world. Where do understanding and intelligence begin and end? He examines mythic fools such as Cyclops and King Midas, cities such as Gotham, archetypes including the dumb blonde, and traditionally stupid animals such as the goose, the donkey and the headless chicken.
   
GA03-109 New Dictionary of the History of Ideas, 6-Vols/Set.
  / 9780684313771/ Price:US$ 1161.00
 
What are the origins of the concepts under which we organize societies, create institutions and think about our lives? Where did the concept of God or equal rights or democracy come from? How does one idea influence another? Such questions fuel debates, speeches, papers and assignments in history classes, school speaking competitions, ethics classes and more. The publication of the New Dictionary of the History of Ideas marks the return of a reference work that is an essential tool to make the often complex history of "what we think" accessible to students and general readers. The original 1974 Dictionary of the History of Ideas has long been admired as a landmark document encapsulating the thinking of an era. This thoroughly re-envisioned New Dictionary of the History of Ideas brings fresh intelligence and a global perspective to bear on timeless questions about the individual and society. A distinguished team of international scholars explore new thinking in areas previously covered (communism, linguistics, physics) and present cross-cultural perspectives on more recent topics such as postmodernism, deconstruction and post-colonialism.
   
VE01-14 Evolution Debate, 1813-1870, The. 9-Vols/Set.
  Knight, David/ 9780415289221/ Price:£ 1560.00
 
The history of evolutionary thought is often seen as a triumph of secularism in the form of 'scientific naturalism', over religious bigotry. But for those involved in the debate during the nineteenth century, these divisions were not so clearly marked. This collection of nine volumes will bring together key works in the development of evolutionary theory from fundamentalists, such as Philip Gosse who insisted on a literal reading of Genesis, to T.H. Huxley, whose passionate defence of evolution theory earned him the title of 'Darwin's Bulldog'. Between these two extreme positions are situated the works of Cuvier, Wallace, Buckland, Lyell and Owen, all of whom rejected Darwin's version of evolution to varying degrees. Each volume includes a new introduction by the editor, which provides an historical and intellectual context for each of the works, while a general introduction in the first volume provides an overview of the collection as a whole.

VA06-118 Karl Popper: Critical Assessments of Leading Philosophers, 4-Vols/Set.
  O'Hear, Anthony/ 9780415180412/ Price:£ 990.00
 
Born in Austria, Karl Popper (1902-1994) was one of the dominant philosophical thinkers of the 20th century. A ground-breaking thinker, he saw the essence of true science as being the readiness to submit theories to severe testing and to reject them when refuted by test. His first major book in 1935, The Logic of Scientific Discovery, marked him as a major analyst of science and was to have an enormous influence on the way people, including major scientists, came to think about the field. This collection is a timely assessment of the reactions to and abiding influence of Popper's work and the controversy it caused across many academic and political fields. The set includes early responses to Popper's work from sources difficult to obtain, and also two early reviews (by Carnap and Grelling) in translations specially prepared for this set. It is organised thematically and includes a substantial new introduction by the editor.
   
VA06-115-1 History of Philosophy, A., 11-Vols/Set.
  Copleston, Frederick/ 9780826469472/ Price:£ 525.00
 
Copleston, an Oxford Jesuit and specialist in the history of philosophy, first created his history as an introduction for Catholic ecclesiastical seminaries. However, since its first publication (the last volume appearing in the mid-1970s) the series has become the classic account for all philosophy scholars and students. The 11-volume series gives an accessible account of each philosopher's work, but also explains their relationship to the work of other philosophers.

VA05-90 Critical Theory, 4-Vols/Set.
  Rasmussen, David/ 9780761942498/ Price:£ 645.00
 
This is a major assessment of the Frankfurt School and of Critical Theory. Volume I looks at the origins of the School in the 1920's through to the 1940's focussing on the key themes - the critique of German idealism, reading of Marx, use of the dialectical methods - and the key thinkers - Horkheimer, Benjamin, Adorno, and Marcuse. In Volume II, the ideas of "critique", of reason, and of rationality are examined - this includes work on the early Frankfurt School as well as issues like society and technology. The focus of Volume III is the literature on subjectivity, ethics, and politics - reviewing socialisation and solidarity; situatedness; morality; and the public sphere. The final volume looks at the future of Critical Theory - the role of social criticism, the relation to postmodernism, to psychology, to aesthetics, feminism and the family, and to religion.
   
VA05-86 Body, The: Critical Concepts in Sociology, 5-Vols/Set.
  Blaikie, Andrew/ 9780415266628/ Price:£ 1135.00
 
This collection offers a uniquely comprehensive guide to the sociology of the body. With a strong historical scope and conceptual framework, it provides an indispensible reference for undergraduate and postgraduate students, and a robust source for scholars working in the area. The central focus is on understanding sociology through the body; what is often described as re-reading sociology in a 'more corporeal light'. This is an interdisciplinary process, drawing on history, feminism, cultural history, art history, anthropology, social psychology, philosophy, medical sociology and media and communications, as well as sociology. While this has been primarily a Western practice, The Body seeks to broaden the perspective to include references that draw on alternative cultural assumptions, beliefs and practices (including Japan, and South America.)

VA09-240 Jacques Lacan: Critical Evaluations in Cultural Theory, 4-Vols/Set.
  Zizek, Slavoj/ 9780415278621/ Price:£ 875.00
 
Jacques Lacan (1901-1980) is undoubtedly the central figure of psychoanalysis in the second half of the 20th century. He not only revolutionized the psychoanalytic practice, but in his 'return to Freud', he also deployed a global reinterpretation of the entire structural linguistics and semiotics. The influence of Lacan's work is widespread. It gave rise to passionate discussions not only in France, but also in the UK, US, Germany, Italy, Latin America, Japan and Eastern Europe, stretching beyond the field of psychoanalysis itself, to philosophy, the social sciences and cultural studies. The texts selected present the entire scope of the Lacan debate focusing on the four main domains of Lacan's influence: psychoanalytic theory and practice; philosophy; social sciences and cultural studies.
   
VA06-99 Kierkegaard: Critical Assessments of Leading Philosophers, 4-Vols/Set.
  Conway, Daniel W./ 9780415235860/ Price:£ 800.00
 
Soren Kierkegaard (1813-1855) is widely recognized as a leading figure in the Western tradition of philosophy. Especially well known are his seminal contributions to existentialism, philosophy of religion, and cultural criticism. His novel experiments with pseudonymy, irony, satire, allegory and self-erasure have influenced the development of various strands of 'post-structuralist' and 'post-modern' thought in the twentieth century. The secondary literature devoted to his thought is consequently distributed across a number of academic disciplines, including philosophy, literature, religion, political theory and history. These volumes are designed to allow current debates on key themes to be followed through in depth without having to seek additional sources, while giving readers an appreciation of the diversity of philosophical approaches and interpretive strategies which characterize recent Kierkegaard scholarship.
   
VA06-98 John Rawls: Critical Assessments of Leading Philosophers, 4-Vols/Set.
  Kukathas, Chandran/ 9780415229951/ Price:£ 910.00
 
John Rawls (1921-2002) is, arguably, the most important political philosopher of our time. It is commonly observed that the publication in 1971 of his treatise A Theory of Justice initiated a return to political questions among Anglo-American philosophers and is largely responsible for the vigorous health of contemporary political philosophy. Rawls' ideas and approach have transformed philosophical inquiry in this area, and political theorists nowadays are obliged to make clear where they stand in relation to Rawls if they wish to be involved in mainstream discussions. Yet Rawls' influence has also extended beyond philosophy and has had a substantial impact on work in law, economics, and political science. Since the publication of A Theory of Justice, Rawls has written two other major works: Political Liberalism (1993) and The Law of Peoples (1999) and also issued a collection of his essays: Collected Papers (1999). This collection provides a thorough analysis of Rawls' work. In addition to a general introduction, the set includes introductions to each volume which help guide the reader through the material.
   
VA06-97 Derrida: Critical Assessments of Leading Philosophers, 3-Vols/Set.
  Lawlor, Len/ 9780415235815/ Price:£ 735.00
 
The value of these volumes lies not only in the fact that it will make many well-known essays easily available, but also that it will present many essays never before translated into English. The names alone of the authors assembled here indicate the importance of this collection, contributors include: Blanchot, Cixous, deMan, Foucault, Gadamer, Habermas, Irigaray, Levinas, Lyotard and Ricoeur. Volume I: Interpretations of Derrida by his Contemporaries Volume II: First Wave of European Interpretations Volume II Part II: The First Wave of European Interpretations Part III: The Anglo-American Interpretation Introduction to Part III Volume III: The Anglo-American Interpretation (continued) part IV: Politics and Literature Introduction to Part IV literature
   
VA06-96 Richard Rorty, 4-Vols/Set.
  Malachowski, Alan/ 9780761974642/ Price:£ 645.00
 
The collection is divided into four volumes: - Philosophy: this volume looks at how Rorty's contribution to the analytic tradition was assessed by his peers at the time and then examines how his later, more explicitly post-analytic, writings relate to traditional philosophical topics such as `truth' and `realism'. - Post-Analytic Pragmatism: Volume Two examines Rorty's `post-analytic pragmatism'. It begins by considering how Rorty prepared for a shift into this territory, and then looks more closely at the kind of pragmatism he sought to establish; the volume contains discussions of the kind of pragmatism that emerges from both Philosophy and the Mirror of Nature (1979) and Consequences of Pragmatism (1982). - Politics, Irony and Solidarity provides an assessment of Rorty's account of irony and examines its relationship to his liberal politics. - Culture, Interpretation and Conversations: this final volume examines Rorty's views on philosophy as a form of cultural conversation and discusses his interpretations or `appropriations' of other philosophers. Of special interest here are his readings of continental philosophers such as Hegel, Heidegger and Derrida, where it is acknowledged that one Rorty's most important contributions to social thought has been to make the work of such philosophers more accessible to readers unfamiliar with, or even hostile to, the continental tradition. Volume 4 concludes with a definitive bibliography, which will be an invaluable resource for researchers and students. Edited by Alan Malachowski - a leading commentator on Rorty's work - this collection will be the standard reference work on one of the canonical theorists of the late 20th century.

VA06-104 Deconstruction: Critical Concepts in Literary and Cultural Studies, 4-Vols/Set.
  Culler, Jonathan/ 9780415247061/ Price:£ 910.00
 
In its most specific form, deconstruction is a mode of philosophical and literary analysis, derived from the work of French philosopher, Jacques Derrida, which questions the most basic philosophical categories or concepts. Since deconstruction has traditionally been an activity based in philosophy, it has required, from the outset, explanation and explication. Indeed, one could argue that deconstruction has to a considerable extent been formed by critical accounts of it. This collection will reprint a cross section of these important works. The result is a set which charts the ways in which deconstruction is conceptualised and demonstrates the impact it has had on a wide range of traditions - areas as diverse as psychoanalysis, law, gender studies and architecture.
   
VA05-60 Mikhail Bakhtin, 4-Vols/Set.
  Gardiner, Michael E./ 9780761974475/ Price:£ 645.00
 
This timely and comprehensive collection covers the contribution and significance of the famed Russian social and cultural theorist, Mikhail M. Bakhtin (1895-1975), as well as the work of other central members of the so-called 'Bakhtin Circle', especially Voloshinov and Medvedev. The material is organized thematically to provide a contextual basis of Bakhtin's thought and his central influences, including an investigation of the key concepts in Bakhtin's work (such as aesthetics, carnival, dialogism, the chronotope, and ethics); the major debates and interpretations around Bakhtin's writings; comparisons between Bakhtin and other significant sociocultural theorists, notably Foucault, Derrida, Habermas and Gramsci; and appropriations and applications of Bakhtin's ideas in such diverse fields as anthropology, geography, cultural studies and psychology. This unparalleled collection provides readers with the best secondary work on Bakhtin. It enriches our understanding of this prolific and multi-dimensional figure whose contribution stretches over the fields of cultural studies, linguistics, social philosophy, sociology and beyond.
   
VA05-56 Zygmunt Bauman, 4-Vols/Set.
  Beilharz, Peter/ 9780761971276/ Price:£ 645.00
 
Zygmunt Bauman is widely acknowledged as the most interesting and consistent of postmodern sociologists. Yet his work is widely dispersed across a number of fields and his critical interpretation is scattered across a wide array of disciplines. This major four-volume collection draws together these important materials for the first time. The contributions in the four-volume set are organized around themes, as follows: - biographical - communism and Eastern Europe - Modernity and the Holocaust - Marxism, class and political economy - sociology: Weber, bureaucracy, Durkheim, the stranger, consumption, work and welfare - postmodernism - ethics - death and dying - intellectuals and power - extensions and applications of Bauman's ideas by others, from Japan to Latin America and Scandinavia. The collection features the work of key commentators and is edited by Peter Beilharz, Professor of Sociology at La Trobe University and Director of the Thesis Eleven Centre for Critical Theory. He is the author of Zygmunt Bauman: Dialectic of Modernity (SAGE Publications, 2000) and editor of The Bauman Reader (Blackwell, 2000).
   
VA02-38 Semiotics, 4-Vols/Set.
  Boklund-Lagopoulou, Karin/ 9780761974161/ Price:£ 645.00
 
Semiotics, the study of the sign systems that constitute human culture, has since its discovery in the late 19th century and early 20th century, transformed the ways in which we think about culture and communication. It has opened new areas of study and made fruitful connections between established disciplines. This four-volume set offers the most extensive, systematic and in-depth survey of the foundations and development of semiotics as a field. It covers foundational texts in semiotics, from the constitution of the field in the early 20th century, through its blossoming with the advent of structuralism in the 1960s and `70s and the formative dialogue between structuralism and Marxism. It goes on to present a representative selection of central essays in literary semiotics, narratology and poetics, the semiotics of anthropology, myth, art, architecture, music, theatre, film, fashion and other aspects of contemporary culture. Special attention is paid to the development of a poststructuralist, semiotically aware discourse in the analysis of culture and history, to the related areas of deconstruction and psychoanalysis, and to the current controversy over the possibilities and issues raised by a postmodernist semiotics. The anthology offers a unique and valuable research tool for students and scholars alike in all areas of the social sciences and humanities, including linguistics, social and cultural anthropology, sociology, cultural studies, philosophy, psychology, literature, and media and communication studies.

VB02-6 Antonio Gramsic, 4-Vols/Set.
  Martin, James/ 9780415217477/ Price:£ 995.00
 
From the sociology of modern capitalism to state theory and cultural and media studies, Gramsci's ideas have become a central component of mainstream social and political thought since the publication of his writings, in English, in the 1960s. In particular, his concept of 'hegemony', denoting the struggle for ideological dominance by social classes, has been fundamental to the understanding of power in modern states. Over the past thirty years, Gramsci's ideas have been influential in the following areas: * Marxist Political Theory * The Sociology of Culture and Ideology * Political Analysis and State Theory * Cultural Studies * Critical International Relations * Post-structuralist Political Thought With both a general introduction and individual volume introductions and including articles translated from Italian for the first time, this is the only collection of its kind and the first systematic collection of over thirty years worth of critical commentary on this influential figure.
   
VA17-6 Concise Encyclopedia of Language and Religion.
  Sawyer, J. F. A./ 9780080431673/ Price:US$ 375.00

VA09-213 Phrenology in Europe and America 1790-1890, 8-Vols/Set.
  Cooter, Roger/ 9780415236232/ Price:£ 1215.00
 
The popular nineteenth-century science of phrenology has attracted a great deal of recent scholarly interest. What was once seen as a rather curious and eccentric practice, is now becoming recognised as one of the most significant social and intellectual manifestations of the nineteenth century. Extending an influence to virtually every aspect of life, thought and belief, it is regarded as having contributed instrumentally to developments in anthropology, criminology, medicine, psychiatry, and education. This unique set draws together a wealth of material crucial to the intellectual debate over phrenology, both as a branch of mental physiology and as a contribution to the history of philosophy. The articles selected represent the variety of different views throughout the nineteenth century, both pro and anti-phrenology.

  Chadwick, Ruth/ 9780415208383/ Price:£ 1225.00
 
Applied ethics has become established as a distinct area of study, but its methodology and practicality are still matters of controversy. This collection examines how the field has developed over the last fifty years, by bringing together those articles that have been seminal in the development of the subject. The focus of these volumes is on the different types of approach to the subject, the areas in which it has been most active, and ways in which the field has expanded. Each of the six volumes carries an introduction to provide the reader with the historical context of the material, and a new index is provided to identify key philosophical themes and trends within the collection.

Some 600 entries cover the spectrum of ethics; including metaethics; ethical theory; perrenial moral problems and political, social and legal theory.

'Is this encyclopedia an essential purchase? Yes,...especially for large public and academic libraries.

Izbicki, John Hopkins University - Choice [February 2002] 'Libraries that found the first edition valuable will be even more impressed with this new version.' - Against the Grain [December 2001-January 2002] '...the Beckers are to be congratulated in putting together an impressive team...the list is peppered with some of the very best names in the field...it is a valuable resource for anyone interested in this area of philosophy.'

VA06-100 Ludwig Wittgenstein: Critical Assessments of Leading Philosophers, Second Series.
  Shanker, Stuart/ 9780415149181/ Price:£ 910.00
 
Wittgenstein scholarship has continued to grow at a pace few could have anticipated - a testament both to the fertility of his thought and to the thriving state of contemporary philosophy. In response to this ever-growing interest in the field, we are delighted to announce the publication of a second series of critical assessments on Wittgenstein, emphasising both the breadth and depth of contemporary Wittgenstein research. As well as papers on the nature and method of Wittgenstein's philosophy, this second collection also relates to a broader range of topics, including psychology, politics, art, music and culture.
   
VA01-12 I. A. Richards: Selected Works 1919-1938, 10-Vols/Set.
  Constable, John/ 9780415217316/ Price:£ 1185.00
 
. A. Richards was the most influential of the first generation of academic literary theorists. This definitive collection of his writing between 1919 and 1938 shows that Richards' position was distinct from the emerging consensus in university literary education. Richards is often misunderstood as a master of a now superseded school of academic criticism and a forerunner of an institutionalised classroom method. This set will allow today's scholar and researcher to discover that Richards was actually one of its most severe critics.

VA05-22 Erving Goffman, 4-Vols/Set.
  Fine, Gary Alan/ 9780761968634/ Price:£ 645.00
 
Erving Goffman (1922-82) was an inspirational thinker, and one of the giants of 20th century sociology. Several of his books, notably The Presentation of Self in Everyday Life (1959), Asylums (1961), Relations in Public (1963), Stigma (1963) and Gender Advertisements (1979) are acknowledged as modern classics. Goffman fundamentally revised how we think of social life. After him, the study of social encounters, behavior in public, the construction and deconstruction of the self, stigma and forms of everyday communication, were never the same again. Without being obviously attached to any discrete research tradition, Goffman drew from the best thought on social interaction, applied it in his fieldwork, and produced a richly satisfying and extraordinarily influential approach to making sense of social life. He was a sociological virtuoso, producing unmatched insights into how life with others is sustained and why forms of interaction break down or cause personal damage. This unparalleled collection, edited by two acknowledged international experts on Goffman, produces a unique reference resource for researchers and students. It consists of the main critical responses to Goffman's oeuvre, offering readers a distillation of the main themes in Goffman's work and explaining how these themes relate to contemporary social thought. The collection is systematic and constitutes a unique asset in understanding this searching and wide-ranging thinker.
   
VA05-13 Pierre Bourdieu, 4-Vols/Set.
  Robbins, Derek/ 9780761964650/ Price:£ 645.00
 
Derek Robbins provides the first complete assessment of the sociological achievements of one of the key European sociologists of the 20th century. Bourdieu has made decisive contributions to theory, method and professional practice. All are discussed here, providing an unparalleled distillation of Bourdieu's work. The collection: offers a systematic understanding and evaluation of Bourdieu's sociology; demonstrates the relation of Bourdieu to wider research traditions in the social sciences; faithfully represents Bourdieu's multidisciplinarianism; explains why Bourdieu is a key 20th century sociologist. The collection is edited by one of Europe's leading commentators on Bourdieu. The four volumes stand as the benchmark work on a sociologist who has left an indelible mark on the 20th century and whose legacy will be intensively debated into the next millenium.
   
VA03-22 Imperialism: Critical Concepts in Historical Studies, 3-Vols/Set.
  Cain, Peter/ 9780415206273/ Price:£ 845.00
 
The philosopher W.B. Gallie argued many years ago that there could be no simple definition of words such as 'freedom' because they embodied what he called 'essentially contested concepts'. They were words whose meaning had to be fought over and whose compteting definitions arose out of political struggle and conflict. Imperialism, and its close ally, colonialism, are two such contested concepts. This set will give readers an insight in to the main lines of debate about the meanings of imperialism and colonialism over the last two centuries.

  Conway, Daniel W./ 9780415135610/ Price:£ 960.00
 
Nietzsche: Critical Assessments collects together the very best scholarship available on Nietzsche's multi-dimensional thought.Nietzsche's writings are now considered seminal to a number of scholarly disciplines, including philosophy, political theory, depth psychology, jurisprudence, rhetoric, anthropology, sociology, and comparative literature. This recent explosion of scholarship is matched only by the rapid profusion of academic and popular interest in Nietzsche's philosophy. Nietzsche's current readership is drawn from various and disparate academic backgrounds and his chequered reception means that scholars have arrived at his work from diverse critical standpoints. The articles included in this set are written by leading Nietzsche scholars and demonstrate the serious reconsideration of his thought as a whole, in a number of academic fields and disciplines over the last thirty years. * Volume One covers Metaphysics and Ontology * Volume Two covers Epistemology and Psychology * Volume Three covers Ethics and Political Philosophy * Volume Four covers Rhetoric, Poetry and Literary Style

`It's so good ... Non-western philosophies are given a lot of room, and this is one of the best things about the REP not only because comprehensiveness is good in itself, but also because philosophers badly need to know more about rhe rest of the world.' - Financial Times `A unique achievement and a great one. The planning, organisation and execution of the project are alike masterly ... the task could hardly have been better performed ... the Encyclopedia offers riches ... comprehensiveness is here truly achieved. There is something in this Encyclopedia for everyone for whom the word `philosophy' has any resonance: the ardent amateur, the dilettante, the beginning student, the aspirant teacher, the seasoned professional.' - The Observer `The Routledge Encyclopedia of Philosophy surpasses in range all previous attempts ... Learning, reasoning, rigour and diligence are everywhere apparent.' - The Times `Edward Craig ... has exacted a high standard of clarity in exposition and has ... judged nicely how much space to allot to doctrines, ideas and individuals ... a monumental labour rarely laborious to use, always informative to read and diverting to browse ... grandiose.' - Times Literary Supplement `This Encyclopedia comes to us with the highest credentials ... the main entries ... are written to a high intellectual standard and by respected figures ... a work of reference that can be used by anyone ... accessible and useful to non-specialists. Undergraduates will love it ... It will, I am sure, be rewarded with the use it deserves. I wish it every success.' - Spectator 'Edward Craig and Routledge are to be congratulated on a monumental achievement.' - Ray Monk, Times Higher Education Supplement
   
VA06-74 Plato: Critical Assessments, 4-Vols/Set.
  Smith, Nicholas D./ 9780415126052/ Price:£ 1005.00
 
The philosophy of Plato, universally acknowledged as the most important thinker of the Ancient World, is a major focus of contemporary attention - not only among philosophers, but also classicists and literary and political theorists. This set selects the best and most influential examples of Platonic scholarship published in English over the last fifty years, and adds translations of outstanding works published in other languages. It represents radically different scholarly approaches, and illuminates the key issues in the most hotly debated topics, including Plato's theory of the Forms and Platonic Erotics. It is especially concerned with the interpretations and major debates of philosophers of the Anglo-American schools over the last three decades.

Bayle's Dictionary is one of the best known and most influential works of the eighteenth century. Banned in Catholic France on first publication in 1697 it became a bestseller and ran into several editions and translations. Its merciless scientific and philosophical enquiring challenged all assumptions and blind reverence for authority, setting new standards for all future encyclopedists. This second English edition is enlarged from the fourth French edition, which in turn had been much enlarged from Bayle's manuscripts. Edited and with a life of Bayle by the highly esteemed Pierre Desmaizeaux, this edition represents the most comprehensive English edition available.

Critically engaging postmodern theory and culture, Steven Best and Douglas Kellner illuminate our momentous transition between a modernist past and a future struggling to define itself.
   
VA06-72 Socrates: Critical Assessment of Leading Philosophers, 4-Vols/Set.
  Prior, William J./ 9780415109680/ Price:£ 880.00
 
This four volume set is a collection of some of the most significant scholarship published on the philosophy of Socrates in the last half century. The contributors include many of the most prominent scholars in this field. As the growth in Socratic studies in the past three decades is due in large part to the influential work of Gregory Vlastos, articles by him figure prominently in the collection, and works by other authors are generally related to his work (as sources of it, responses to it, or further developments of it). The volumes deal with different areas of Socratic thought. The first volume begins with the question whether and to what degree we can discern a distinctive philosophy of Socrates in the ancient sources. The second volume deals with the trial of Socrates and the philosophical issues that arise from it. The third volume considers the philosophical methodology of Socrates and the fourth his moral philosophy. This collection shares some material with earlier collections on the philosophy of Socrates, but it is more extensive and up-to-date. Unlike other collections, which may offer the reader only a single article on a given topic, this collection offers a conversation in-depth. The reader can thus get a sense of the dimensions of the scholarly debate on these central issues in the philosophy of Socrates. No collection can be complete, but this aims at a representative portrait of Socratic studies in the last fifty years.

  Taylor, Helen/ 9781855064157/ Price:£ 195.00
 
Henry Thomas Buckle (1821-1862)是最具色彩及爭議性的英國歷史學家。雖然他由保守黨員的父親以及嚴格的喀爾文教徒母親所教養成人,但是他本身卻是個激進的自由思想家,他最著名的作品 --「文明的歷史」中值得注意的是他所採用的研究方法與主題。早期的歷史學者曾寫過關於帝王們之間的鬥爭與脅迫,巴克則專心研究現今稱為社會主義與理智主義的歷史。他十分欽佩J. S. Mill,因而深信經驗主義的方法論對歷史研究是很有助益的。 除了《歷史與文明》一書之外,在巴克的一生中也出版其他的作品。在這些作品中,包含評論J. S. Mill的自由主義和重要的公開演講-"女人對知識形成過程的影嚮"等,皆可在第一冊中找到包含各方面主題、未出版過的或未完成之作品。在這裡我們可以發現巴克隨著年齡,逐漸改變對伏爾泰與盧梭、信仰自由與宗教迫害、乞丐與貧民救濟法,女性的影嚮力、拒絕迷信等的見解。 第二冊與第三冊所包含的巴克備忘錄,是在他旺盛的求知慾下所累積的成果。此二冊在英國歷史時期方面的文獻,也以強調在社會學,理智主義、宗教與道德重整等方面了提出新的觀點。 這一套三冊的書,呈現給讀者的是,在社會學與歷史學方面,寬廣且多樣的選擇。這樣完整的版本,絕對能提供對英國歷史學家有興趣的讀者,極具洞察力的資料。

邊沁﹝1748-1832﹞出生於倫敦,在牛津的威斯敏斯特學校及皇后學院接受教育。西元1973年,15歲的他,進入林肯學院就讀法律,二十歲時即開始執業。然而他並沒有執業很久,反而使邊沁對改革法律政策產生濃厚的興趣。同樣的,也讓他對教育界與英國經濟哲學家John Stuart Mill(1806-73),產生極大的影嚮力。 這11冊作品集是第一套完整蒐集邊沁作品的套書,其中還包括邊沁的John Bowring回憶錄。邊沁的作品範圍包含倫理學、法律學、教育邏輯以及政治經濟。他的著作以造福人類為出發點,因此反應在作品上便是對於法律、議會制度以及教育的改革。 在John Hill Burton為這本作品集所作的簡介當中,他列出了數量驚人,由邊沁首先提出且被立法所採用的改革政策法案。他最著名的莫過於在法規精神上的創新,也由於許多人的支持,使得法規倫理與司法制度得到極寬廣的視野。

史都華於愛丁保大學任教,1775-1785年,Dugald Steward是數學教授;1785-1810年,他則是倫理學教授。對於橫跨兩個不同的學術領域,他絕對是其中的佼佼者。他也是蘇格蘭啟蒙運動中的一員,並且是個十分優秀的領導人。在19世紀早期,他更教導出許多傑出的領導人,如Sir Walter Scott, James Mill, Sir James Mackintosh;愛丁堡的評論家Benjamin Constant等等。史都華擷取了Adam Smith的歷史觀點與Thomas Reid的哲學智識,發表出的學術論述,對方法論產生了重要的影嚮,因此對科學方法研究、語言學與經濟理論發展也造成不小的震撼。這樣一位的具有影嚮力的英國哲學家,不僅對德國批評哲學家產生影嚮力,他的思想更領導了法國晚期的思潮發展。 19世紀時,史都華的學說論述對美國與法國思潮所產生的極大影嚮,甚至可以成立一所專門的學校研究。因此,本套書絕對是一本了解史都華的學說、啟蒙時代運動與浪漫主義不可缺少旳工具書。

VA06-22 Georg Simmel, 3-Vols/Set.
  Frisby, David/ 9780415060714/ Price:£ 845.00
 
Georg Simmel predicted that he would have no followers after his death. However he is now widely recognized as the father of the sociology of Modernity. His ideas on the metropolis, consumer culture, social space and aesthetics are at the crux of contemporary debate in sociology. This collection brings together the essential secondary literature on Simmel. It is selected and edited by David Frisby - a scholar who has perhaps done more than anyone else to rehabilitate Simmel's reputation in the English speaking world. What emerges is the most concise yet comprehensive view of this astonishingly prescient and penetrating sociologist. The volumes will be of interest to graduate students and anyone with a serious interest in Simmel.

VA06-24 G. W. F. Hegel, 4-Vols/Set.
  Stern, Robert/ 9780415020039/ Price:£ 995.00
 
G.W.F. Hegel(1770-1831), arguably the greatest philosopher of the nineteenth century, decisively influenced the direction of all subsequent European thought. Variously understood as a theist and an atheist, a conservative and a liberal, an essentialist and a proto-existentialist, a rationalist and an irrationalist, the ambiguities of Hegel's position mean that `interpreting Hegel means taking a stand on all the philosophical, political and religious problems of our century'(Merleau-Ponty). This collection of writings on Hegel reflects the many-sided nature of Hegel's reception from 1831 onwards, and also offers critical studies on the full range of his work. The four volumes incorporate the classic readings of Hegel, from both the continental and analytic traditions, and also include the central twentieth century readings of his work. Each volume is provided with a clear and helpful introduction which sets the articles in their historical context and highlights the central philosophical issues that they raise.
   
VA06-23 G. W. Leibniz, 4-Vols/Set.
  Woolhouse, Robert/ 9780415038096/ Price:£ 875.00
 
Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz (1646-1716) was one of the seventeenth century's most important thinkers. A philosopher, mathematician and scientist, his work is comparable in scope and importance only to that of Newton and Descartes. His work dominated German philosophy until Kant, and was revived in the early part of this century when his important work on logic was re-discovered. This four volume set contains 97 of the most important essays ever written about Leibniz's work. The selection has been made to bring out the scope of Leibniz's work in all the areas he wrote upon, as well as its importance to contemporary philosophy and the history of philosophy. It will be an essential reference work for anyone concerned with seventeenth century philosophy and science, as well as to all Leibniz specialists.
   
VA06-19 Kant's Thought in Britain: the Early Impact, 6-Vols/Set.
  / 9780415083058/ Price:£ 1195.00
 
There has recently been a considerable amount of research into the influence of 18th century British philosophy, and in particular the thinking of David Hume on Continental philosophy and Kant. The influence Kant exerted on British thought during the 19th century is still an area which merits further study. The aim of this collection is to provide some of the key texts which illustrate the impact of Kant's thought together with two important 20th century monographs on aspects of Kant's early reception and his influence on philosophical thought in Britain.

Postmodern Theory: Critical Interrogations.
  Best, Steven/ 9780898624182/ Price:US$ 32.00
 
Book Cover In this timely volume, the authors systematically analyze postmodern theory to evaluate its relevance for critical social theory and radical politics today. Best and Kellner provide: * An introduction and critique of the work of Foucault, Deleuze and Guattari, Baudrillard, Lyotard, Laclau and Mouffe, and Jameson, which assess the varying contributions and limitations of postmodern theory * A discussion of postmodern feminist theory and the politics of identity * A systematic study of the origin of the discourse of the postmodern in historical, sociological, cultural, and philosophical studies. The authors claim that while postmodern theory provides insights into contemporary developments, it lacks adequate methodological and political perspectives to provide a critical social theory and radical politics for the present age.

Forgotten and ignored by English scholars, British Idealism, although short-lived, has recently been rediscovered as an important philosophical movement in its own right.
