English | PDF,EPUB | 2020 | 294 Pages | ISBN : 303052289X | 3. MB

This book provides a comprehensive account of Kant’s development from the 1755/56 metaphysics to the cosmological antinomy of 1781. With the Theory of the Heavens (1755) and the Physical Monadology (1756), the young Kant had presented an ambitious approach to physical cosmology based on an atomistic theory of matter, which contributed to the foundations of an all-encompassing system of metaphysics.

Technology, Anthropology, and Dimensions of Responsibility

Technology, Anthropology, and Dimensions of Responsibility by Birgit Beck
English | PDF,EPUB | 2020 | 203 Pages | ISBN : 3476048950 | 3.8 MB

“With great power comes great responsibility.” In today’s world, with our growing technological power and the knowledge about its impact, we are considered to be responsible for many instances that not long ago would have been deemed a matter of fate. At the same time, the looming options of, e.g., genome editing or neuroprosthetics, threaten traditional notions of responsibility if no longer the person but the technology involved is deemed to be responsible for a specific behaviour.

The Panenmentalist Philosophy of Science: From the Recognition of Individual Pure Possibilities to Actual Discoveries by Amihud Gilead
English | PDF,EPUB | 2020 | 320 Pages | ISBN : 3030411230 | 4.9 MB

This book presents a philosophy of science, based on panenmentalism: an original modal metaphysics, which is realist about individual pure (non-actual) possibilities and rejects the notion of possible worlds. The book systematically constructs a new and novel way of understanding and explaining scientific progress, discoveries, and creativity. It demonstrates that a metaphysics of individual pure possibilities is indispensable for explaining and understanding mathematics and natural sciences.
