Pathways to Anarchism (Avebury Series in Philosophy), Philip Edwards

Pathways to Anarchism (Avebury Series in Philosophy)
UK Ashgate Publishing Limited
1997 1859726399 / 9781859726396 First Edition Hardcover Fine Condition 22.6 x 15.9 cm 
In modern political philosophy, this work work argues that there is a widely accepted assumption that political states are the only conditions in which possesive individualist humans could lead secure, worthwhile lives. The author calls this the "play-pen defence" for states. This book seeks to challenge this assumption without drawing on the mainstream of the anarchist tradition. Instead, assuming that the social psychology of possesive individualism is too ubiquitous to be ignored, it explores the opinions opened up by libertarian anarchists. It agrees with minimal statists that libertarian anarchy will degenerate into a stark, self-defeating anarchy. However, the author argues that it does not follow that, if the state did not exist - it would have to be invented, as minimal statists claim. The book examines an alternative way - a practical anarchy which will secure political stability, public order and economic viability - that maybe more congenial to possesive individualist than life in states. Size: 22.6 x 15.9 cm. 130 pages. Both boards have light handling marks, otherwise a nice clean copy. Binding is tight, covers and spine fully intact. All edges clean, neat and free of marks.

Perception (Central Problems of Philosophy), Maund, Barry
15 Maund, Barry
Perception (Central Problems of Philosophy)
UK Routledge
2003 1902683609 / 9781902683607 First Edition Softcover New 12.9 x 1.9 x 19.9 cm 
Available Now. Book Description: The philosophical issues raised by perception make it one of the central topics in the philosophical tradition. Debate about the nature of perceptual knowledge and the objects of perception comprises a thread that runs through the history of philosophy. In some historical periods the major issues have been predominantly epistemological and related to scepticism, but an adequate understanding of perception is important more widely, especially for metaphysics and the philosophy of mind. For this reason Barry Maund provides an account of the major issues in the philosophy of perception that highlights the importance of a good theory of perception in a range of philosophical fields, while also seeking to be sensitive to the historical dimension of the subject. The work presents chapters on forms of natural realism; theories of perceptual experience; representationalism; the argument from illusion; phenomenological senses; types of perceptual content; the representationalist/intentionalist thesis; and adverbialist accounts of perceptual experience. The ideas of, among others, Austin, Dretske, Heidegger, Millikan, Putnam and Robinson are considered and the reader is given a philosophical framework within which to consider the issues. : Review: "A great contribution to the literature. An exceptionally good guide to those interested in getting a foothold on the metaphysical and mind aspects of perception." - Philosophy in Review : About the Author: Barry Maund is Associate Professor of Philosophy at the University of Western Australia.

The Depravity of Wisdom: Protestant Reformation and the Disengagement of Knowledge from Virtue in Modern Philosophy (Avebury Series in Philosophy)

1999 184014548X / 9781840145489 First Edition Hardcover Fine Condition 1.9 x 16.5 x 22.9 cm 
The primary operative function of this work is that the Protestant Reformation cemented into western consciousness a conception of humanity as fundamentally depraved, and thus ushered in a conception of human reason far more restricted in scope than known to pre-Reformation philosophy. Though this study is essentially a work in the history of philosophy, it lays the groundwork for an original philosophy of language as well as offering a suggestion for a re-evaluation of Hegel in light of this approach to langauge. The book concludes that what was in fact lost in the secular appropriation of the total depravity of man, was a conception of reason intimately linked to the assumption that language and the general principles that govern it stand in some way as the guarantors of the correspondence of human thought and institutions and the world at large. At the bottom of this is the loss of the classical understanding of the faculty of practical reason. Size: 1.9 x 16.5 x 22.9 cm. 144 pages. Both boards have light handling marks, otherwise a nice clean copy. Binding is tight, covers and spine fully intact. All edges clean, neat and free of marks. Quantity Available: 1.

The Genealogy of Knowledge : Analytical Essays in the History of Philosophy and Science
UK Ashgate Publishing Limited
1997 1840141727 / 9781840141726 First Edition Hardcover Fine Condition 23 cm 
318 Pages. The essays in this collection deal with questions at the borderline of science and philosophy. The essays range through Aristotle, the sceptics, Galileo, Descartes, Euler, Vico, Marx, and Nietzsche. Some look at attempts to provide philosophical clarification of scientific questions such as Aristotle on the nature of numbers and Euler's attempt to provide foundations for physical theory. Others look at attempts to question the value of a scientific model for enquiry such as Vico's argument that the human sciences require a different foundation from the natural sciences, and Neitzsche's attempt to show that science's attempt to uncover the reality beneath the appearances is fundamentally misguided. Other explore the relationship between the humanities and the science such as Descartes' use of rhetorical theory to explain the nature of scientific demonstration, and Marx's attempt to combine a metaphysical theory about how human being's constitute themselves through production with an economic theory of production.
