Requirements: ePUB reader, 161 KB Overview: We don’t understand the reactionary mind.

Requirements: Any PDF Reader, 13.7 MB Overview: What does it mean to understand something? What types of understanding can be distinguished? Is understanding always provided by explanations?

Requirements: ePUB Reader, 851 Kb Overview: This volume explores from multiple perspectives the subtle and interesting relationship between the theory of rational choice and Darwinian evolution.

Requirements: PDF Reader, 530 KB Overview: Truth without Predication contains an original analysis of the existential there-sentence from a philosophical-linguistic perspective. At its core is the claim that there-sentences' form is distinct from that of ordinary subject–predicate sentences, and that this fundamental difference explains the construction's unusual grammatical and discourse properties. Taking as a point of departure a suggestion made in Strawson's Individuals, this book explores the idea...

Requirements: EPUB reader, 1 mb Overview: This book challenges two prevalent assumptions about the Mahābhārata that its narrative is inherently incapable of achieving a conclusion and that its ending, the Svargārohaṇa parva, is an extraneous part of the text.

Throughout the dialogues, the Good serves as an overarching ordering principle for the construction of...

Claims about the epistemic and political effects of argument get their authority not from logic but from their “fit with the facts” about how communication works. A Theory of Communication thus offers a picture of communication—distilled from elements of symbolic interactionism, personal construct theory, constructivism,...
