《Mind and morals : essays on cognitive science and ethics》

image

作者:Larry May, Marilyn Friedman, and Andy Clark.

The essays in this anthology deal with the growing interconnections between moral philosophy and research that draws upon neuroscience, developmental psychology, and evolutionary biology. This cross- disciplinary interchange coincides, not accidentally, with the renewed interest in ethical naturalism. In order to understand the nature and limits of moral reasoning, many new ethical naturalists look to cognitive science for an account of how people actually reason. At the same time, many cognitive scientists have become increasingly interested in moral reasoning as a complex form of human cognition that challenges their theoretical models. The result of this collaborative, and often critical, interchange is an exciting intellectual ferment at the frontiers of research into human mentality.

《Inventing disease and pushing pills : pharmaceutical companies and the medicalisation of normal life》

clip_image002 作者:Jörg Blech

This is a highly accessible and reassuring account of how the pharmaceutical industry is redefining health, making it a state that is almost impossible to achieve. Many normal life processes – states as natural as birth, ageing, sexuality, unhappiness and death – are systematically being reinterpreted as pathological so creating new markets for their treatments. In this enlightening book, Jörg Blech reveals:

*how the invention of diseases by pharmaceutical companies is turning us all into patients, and how we can protect ourselves against this

*how the medical profession has been bullied and co-opted into endorsing profitable cures for people who aren't ill

fears about how pharmaceutical companies create markets by playing on the general public's concern with their health.

A self-help book in the truest sense, Inventing Disease and Pushing Pills reassures us about our own health. It is essential reading for doctors, nurses and patients alike.

《Ethical intuitionism》

clip_image002

作者:Michael Huemer

'Read this. It is the best book ever written on meta-ethics. Even philosophers who know the field may feel as though they are confronting these issues for the first time. I used to think of ethical intuitionism as a silly, naIve, even ridiculous theory, but Michael Huemer has made an intuitionist out of me.' - Stuart Rachels, Department of Philosophy, University of Alabama, Tuscaloosa, USA 'Huemer's book may be the best, most comprehensive defense of ethical intuitionism since Moore's Principia Ethica...[it] is an outstanding defense of the view that there are objective moral truths knowable through intuition. Whether or not one agrees with Huemer's conclusions, one cannot ignore the power of his arguments.' - Richard Fumerton, Department of Philosophy, University of Iowa 'A terrific book. Now philosophers will have no excuse for treating ethical intuitionism as if it were a silly and easily-refuted view.' - James W. Nickel, Arizona State University College of Law, USA

《Children of the Great Depression: Social Change in Life Experience》

clip_image001

作者:Glen H. Elder Jr.

In this highly acclaimed work first published in 1974, Glen H. Elder Jr. presents the first longitudinal study of a Depression cohort. He follows 167 individuals born in 1920–1921 from their elementary school days in Oakland, California, through the 1960s. Using a combined historical, social, and psychological approach, Elder assesses the influence of the economic crisis on the life course of his subjects over two generations. The twenty-fifth anniversary edition of this classic study includes a new chapter on the war years entitled, “Beyond Children of the Great Depression.”

clip_image002

作者:Peter Lamarque and Stein Haugom Olsen

This anthology provides comprehensive coverage of the major contributions of analytic philosophy to aesthetics and the philosophy of art, from the earliest beginnings in the 1950s to the present time. The volume presents the classics of this tradition, and in so doing displays the very foundations of modern debates. Aesthetics and the Philosophy of Art also features a selection of key papers from subsequent contributors that illustrate how the debates developed and how issues arose as analytic philosophers increasingly turned their attention to this area.The volume is a comprehensive guide for students and researchers in aesthetics and philosophy of art, conveniently making available all those papers most often cited.

《Reason and value : themes from the moral philosophy of Joseph Raz》

clip_image002

作者:R. Jay Wallace

Reason and Value collects fifteen brand-new papers by leading contemporary philosophers on themes from the moral philosophy of Joseph Raz. The subtlety and power of Raz's reflections on ethical topics--including especially his explorations of the connections between practical reason and the theory of value--make his writings a fertile source for anyone working in this area. The volume honors Raz's accomplishments in the area of ethical theorizing, and will contribute to an enhanced appreciation of the significance of his work for the subject.

《The Character of Consciousness》

clip_image001

作者:David J. Chalmers

What is consciousness? How does the subjective character of consciousness fit into an objective world? How can there be a science of consciousness? In this sequel to his groundbreaking and controversial The Conscious Mind, David Chalmers develops a unified framework that addresses these questions and many others. Starting with a statement of the "hard problem" of consciousness, Chalmers builds a positive framework for the science of consciousness and a nonreductive vision of the metaphysics of consciousness. He replies to many critics of The Conscious Mind, and then develops a positive theory in new directions. The book includes original accounts of how we think and know about consciousness, of the unity of consciousness, and of how consciousness relates to the external world. Along the way, Chalmers develops many provocative ideas: the "consciousness meter", the Garden of Eden as a model of perceptual experience, and The Matrix as a guide to the deepest philosophical problems about consciousness and the external world. This book will be required reading for anyone interested in the problems of mind, brain, consciousness, and reality.

《On What Matters v.2》

clip_image002

作者:Parfit, Derek/ Scheffer, Samuel (EDT)

On What Matters is a major work in moral philosophy. It is the long-awaited follow-up to Derek Parfit’s 1984 book Reasons and Persons, one of the landmarks of twentieth-century philosophy. Parfit now presents a powerful new treatment of reasons, rationality, and normativity, and a critical examination of three systematic moral theories - Kant’s ethics, contractualism, and consequentialism - leading to his own ground-breaking synthetic conclusion. Along the way he discusses a wide range of moral issues, such as the significance of consent, treating people as a means rather than an end, and free will and responsibility. On What Matters is already the most-discussed work in moral philosophy: its publication is likely to establish it as a modern classic which everyone working on moral philosophy will have to read, and which many others will turn to for stimulation and illumination.

《Philosophy of Mind: Classical and Contemporary Readings》

clip_image002

作者:David J. Chalmers

What is the mind? Is consciousness a process in the brain? How do our minds represent the world?
Philosophy of Mind: Classical and Contemporary Readings is a grand tour of writings on these and other perplexing questions about the nature of the mind. The most comprehensive collection of its kind, the book includes sixty-three selections that range from the classical contributions of Descartes to the leading edge of contemporary debates. Extensive sections cover foundational issues, the nature of consciousness, and the nature of mental content. Three of the selections are published here for the first time, while many other articles have been revised especially for this volume. Each section opens with an introduction by the editor. Philosophy of Mind is suitable for students at all levels and also for general readers.

《The philosophy of mind and cognition》

clip_image001

作者:David Braddon-Mitchell and Frank Jackson

This is a fully revised and updated edition of David Braddon-Mitchell and Frank Jackson’s popular and respected introduction to philosophy of mind and cognition. The revisions are designed to make the volume even more useful for teachers and students, and to keep it current, ensuring that the most recent developments in the philosophy of mind and cognitive science are brought together into a coherent, accessible whole.

New material includes: a section on some of Descartes’ famous objections to materialism along with a discussion of the objection from Godel’s theorem; substantial additions to the discussion of qualia including a discussion of representationalist accounts of experience and of the zombie argument; additional coverage of the view that psychology is autonomous; a new substantial chapter on connectionism and its bearing on the language of thought debate; and much more.
