    What Makes a Philosopher Great?

    Arguments for Twelve Philosophers

    By Stephen Hetherington

    In this book, 14 accomplished contemporary philosophers argue for the greatness of 13 of their predecessors, from antiquity to the 20th century.

  • Hegel on Beauty book cover

    Hegel on Beauty

    By Julia Peters

    While the current philosophical debate surrounding Hegel’s aesthetics focuses heavily on the philosopher’s controversial ‘end of art’ thesis, its participants rarely give attention to Hegel’s ideas on the nature of beauty and its relation to art. This study seeks to remedy this oversight by placing…

    Causation, Freedom and Determinism

    An Attempt to Solve the Causal Problem Through a Study of its Origins in Seventeenth-Century Philosophy

    By Mortimer Taube

    This book, first published in 1936, divides into roughly two parts: a re-examination of historical material; and a positive theory of causation suggested by the results of this re-examination. The historical study discloses an ambiguity in the meanings of causation and determinism; it discloses…

    The Essential Element in Human Action

    By Alan Donagan

    This book, first published in 1987, investigates what distinguishes the part of human behaviour that is action (praxis) from the part that is not.

  • Free Action book cover

    Free Action

    By A.I. Melden

    That a science of human conduct is possible, that what any man may do even in moments of the most sober and careful reflection can be understood and explained, has seemed to many a philosopher to cast doubt upon our common view that any human action can ever be said to be truly free. This book,…

    By Bernard Berofsky

    Free Will

    A Defence Against Neurophysiological Determinism

    By John Thorp

    The problem of freedom and determinism is one of the most enduring, and one of the best, problems in philosophy. One of the best because it so tenaciously resists solution while yet always seeming urgent, and one of the most enduring because it has always been able to present itself in different…
