  1. Now Available - Debates in Medieval Philosophy: Essential Readings and Contemporary Responses

    Debates in Medieval Philosophy: Essential Readings and Contemporary Responses aims to de-mystify medieval works by offering an illuminating, engaging introduction to the problems that medieval philosophers from Augustine through Ockham wrestled with. Each of the volume’s 11 units presents a debate that will enable students to return to the primary texts prepared to think critically and imaginatively about them. The 10 essays newly commissioned for this volume will advance scholarship in medieval metaphysics, ethics, epistemology, logic, and philosophical theology, and in particular they will showcase what is philosophically distinctive and original in medieval philosophy. Students without experience in the history of philosophy will benefit from each unit’s clear, sharply written introductions that supply the necessary background to approach the debates intelligently.

  2. Coming Soon: Arguing About Political Philosophy, 2nd Edition

    This excellent anthology presents political philosophy and theory within the social sciences as well as the liberal arts. Its thematic units combine selections from historical and contemporary canonical works with well-chosen supplemental texts ranging from literature to economics. It also lets students encounter an unusually wide range of normative positions, and so makes clear that the central problems of political philosophy remain live questions for debate. -Jacob T. Levy, McGill University, Canada

Research & Reference

  1. Realism, Science, and Pragmatism

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

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

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

General Interest

  1. April Series of the Month: Routledge Contemporary Introductions to Philosophy

    An innovative, well structured series, the Routledge Contemporary Introductions to Philosophy are designed for students who already have completed an introductory-level course in philosophy. Each book introduces a core general subject in contemporary philosophy and offers students an accessible but substantial transition from introductory to higher-level college work in that subject.Considerable attention is given to explaining central philosophical problems of a subject and the main competing solutions and arguments for those solutions. The primary aim is to educate students in the main problems, positions and arguments of contemporary philosophy rather than to convince students of a single position.

  2. April Book of the Month: Why Not Capitalism?

    "Brennan offers in this brief volume a fully realized and compelling answer to Jerry Cohen's rightly celebrated book Why Not Socialism? Many of the responses to socialist advocacy dismiss command economies as impractical or impossible. But Brennan grants Cohen his premises, and carries out the argument in a way that faithfully mirrors the logic that Cohen tried to marshall in his defense of socialism. Brennan offers an unflinching defense of capitalism, and does it with style and humor. His writing is at once accessible to the first-time philosopher and yet persuasive to the denizens of the ivory towers. This book will be on the reading list for every class I teach." Michael Munger, Director of Philosophy, Politics, and Economics, Duke University, USA
