  • Ethics Goes to the Movies

    An Introduction to Moral Philosophy

  • Locke’s Ideas of Mind and Body

    By Han-Kyul Kim

    This book offers a systematic and sustained attempt to address the interpretive challenge of Locke’s philosophy of mind.

  • Logic from Kant to Russell

    Laying the Foundations for Analytic Philosophy

    Edited by Sandra Lapointe

    The scope and method of logic as we know it today eminently reflect the ground-breaking developments of set theory and the logical foundations of mathematics at the turn of the 20th century.

  • Freewill and Determinism

    A Study of Rival Conceptions of Man

    By R.L. Franklin

    This book, first published in 1968, examines the complicated issues which surround the problem of freewill. Although it reaches a libertarian conclusion, its focus is largely on other questions.

    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

    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,…

  • 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.
