              A dominant epistemological assumption behind Western philosophy is that it is possible to locate some form of commonality between languages, traditions, or cultures. This book argues that the thesis of incommensurability challenges this assumption and provides contributions to th...e discussion of incommensurability and related issues in philosophy.

              Defends the bold claim that humans can organise themselves to live peacefully and prosperously together in an anarchist utopia. This book refutes errors about what anarchism is, about utopianism, and about human sociability and its history. It analyses natural human social activi...ty which places anarchy in the real landscape of sociability.

              Explores various responses to the philosophical problems generated by vagueness and its associated paradox - the sorites paradox. This work argues that the theoretical space in which vagueness is sometimes ontologically grounded and modelled by a truth-functional logic affords a ...coherent response to the problems posed by vagueness.

              Action and Ethics in Aristotle and Hegel: Escaping the Malign Influence of Kant
               

              Action and Ethics in Aristotle and Hegel: Escaping the Malign Influence of Kant (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              By Pendlebury, Gary

              Pendlebury alleges that abstraction and rationalization have had a strong and malign influence on normative moral philosophy in the 20th century. Criticizing writers such as Hare, Rawls and Scanlon for pursuing a conception of moral philosophy that bears little resemblance to the... way in which human beings actually think and conduct themselves, Pendlebury, instead, suggests a 'Virtue Ethics' inspired by Hegel's and Aristotle's accounts of action as a corrective to this trend, showing that moral activity is historically and socially based and must address the formed character of individual agents. This trend, which began with the responses by Locke, Hume and Kant to Descartes' Meditations, rendered moral philosophy individualistic and psychologistic in contrast to Aristotle and Hegel's claim that man is essentially a social creature. Pendlebury argues that this should be the starting point of any account and understanding of morality which roots the concept of will in the practical activity involved in being a member of an ethical community rather than an abstract metaphysical entity that is supposedly in the possession of individuals. In providing a critique of modern moral philosophy from this perspective, Pendlebury's line of enquiry lends much support to 'Virtue Ethics' as exemplified in the work of Hursthouse and Slote, while taking a more combative approach with those with whom he disputes. In doing so he shows that serious considerations of continental philosophy highlights the richness of moral activity absent from 'analytical' tradition which for so long has been bent on marginalizing it.

              Liberty, Property and Markets: A Critique of Libertarianism (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              Libertarianism attempts to establish a set of property rights as a complete political morality, its argument proceeding from liberty tout court, as the unique foundational aspect of well being that grounds rights. In this book, Attas presents a sympathetic reconstruction of the l...ibertarian argument and then brings to bear a critical evaluation leading to an ultimate rejection of libertarianism. Exposing the limitations of libertarianism and disclosing its errors, Attas argues that the rights which libertarians adopt with respect to persons (self-ownership), natural resources (original acquisition) and products are indefensible given what liberty must be.

              Dieter Henrich is one of the most respected and frequently cited philosophers in Germany today. His extensive and highly innovative studies of German Idealism and his systematic analyses of subjectivity have significantly impacted on advanced German philosophical and theological ...debates. Dieter Henrich and Contemporary Philosophy presents a comprehensive analysis of Henrich's work on subjectivity, evaluating it in the context of contemporary debates in both continental and analytic traditions. Familiarising the non-German reader with an important development in contemporary German philosophy, this book explains the significance of subjectivity for any philosophy that attempts to offer existential orientation and contrasts competing conceptions in analytic philosophy and in the social philosophy of Juergen Habermas. Presenting Henrich's philosophy of subjectivity as a credible alternative to analytic philosophy of mind and a radical challenge to Heideggerian, Habermasian, neo-pragmatist, and postmodern positions, Freundlieb argues that a philosophy of the kind developed by Henrich can regain the cultural significance philosophical thinking once possessed.

              Protagoras was an important Greek thinker of the fifth century BC, the most famous of the so called Sophists, though most of what we know of him comes through the dialogues of his strenuous opponent Plato. This book offers an examination of Protagoras' thought for modern readers:... his role as the first Western thinker to argue for relativism.
