  1. Book of The Month: Environmental Ethics for the Long Term

    "John Nolt’s Environmental Ethics for the Long Term is an invaluable addition to the literature in environmental ethics. Nolt’s emphasis on analytical thought and logical reasoning makes this book pleasingly rigorous, and his rich discussion of our responsibilities to distant human generations both clarifies and develops existing debates. Highly recommended! - Clare Palmer, Professor of Philosophy, Texas A&M University, USA

    "Prof. Nolt has an excellent grasp of the topics, and he deals with the most significant issues within these topics. His writing style is lucid and accessible to most undergraduate students. I highly recommend Environmental Ethics for the Long Term as a text for an introductory course in Environmental Ethics." - Ernest Partridge, Retired Hulings Professor of Environmental Ethics, Northland College, USA

  2. The Animal Mind by Kristin Andrews - Out Now

    The study of animal cognition raises profound questions about the minds of animals and philosophy of mind itself. Aristotle argued that humans are the only animal to laugh, but in recent experiments rats have also been shown to laugh. In other experiments, dogs have been shown to respond appropriately to over two hundred words in human language. In this introduction to the philosophy of animal minds Kristin Andrews introduces and assesses the essential topics, problems and debates as they cut across animal cognition and philosophy of mind.

  3. Dewey

    High Praise for New Titles in the Routledge Philosophers Series

    Two of the latest titles in the Routledge Philosophers series are receiving high praise from academics around the world. Published in October, Hume by Don Garrett has been described as 'important and illuminating' by Paul Russell of the University of British Columbia and as 'an outstanding, incredibly stimulating book' by the University of Oxford's P.J.E. Kail.

    Due to publish later this month, Steven Fesmire's Dewey is 'A crisply written, deftly argued introduction.' (Thomas Alexander, Southern Illinois University).

    Philip Kitcher of Columbia University says, 'Fesmire demonstrates the vital relevance of Dewey's ideas today, not only for philosophers but for anyone willing to think hard about the problems of our times. Lucid, informed, and admirably wide-ranging, this book is a superb introduction to the many-sided reflections of America's greatest philosopher.'

  6. The Biological Mind: A Philosophical Introduction - Out Now

    For some, biology explains all there is to know about the mind. Yet many big questions remain: is the mind shaped by genes or the environment? If mental traits are the result of adaptations built up over thousands of years, as evolutionary psychologists claim, how can such claims be tested? If the mind is a machine, as biologists argue, how does it allow for something as complex as human consciousness? Read more...
