Modal Logic: An Introduction to its Syntax and Semantics
Modal Logic: An Introduction to its Syntax and Semantics
In this text, a variety of modal logics at the sentential, first-order, and second-order levels are developed with clarity, precision and philosophical insight. All of the S1-S5 modal logics of Lewis and Langford, among others, are constructed. A matrix, or many-valued semantics, for sentential modal logic is formalized, and an important result...

Issues and Trends in Technology and Human Interaction (Advances in Technology and Human Interaction)
purposes of humans. It often has unintended and unexpected effects on humans and can be used for purposes other than originally planned. While technology cannot exist without humans, one can equally well argue that humans cannot exist without technology. This relationship touches on many fundamental questions of anthropology, ontology, and...

Aristotle's Metaphysics Beta: Symposium Aristotelicum (Oxford Symposium Aristotelicum)
Nine leading scholars of ancient philosophy from Europe, the UK, and North America offer a systematic study of Book Beta of Aristotle's Metaphysics. The work takes the form of a series of aporiai or "difficulties" which Aristotle presents as necessary points of engagement for those who wish to attain wisdom. The topics include causation,...
Possibility
Possibility
Possibility offers a new analysis of the metaphysical concepts of possibility and necessity, one that does not rely on any sort of "possible worlds." The analysis proceeds from an account of the notion of a physical object and from the positing of properties and relations. It is motivated by considerations about how we actually speak of...

Quantum Mechanics and the Philosophy of Alfred North Whitehead (American Philosophy Series)
Quantum Mechanics and the Philosophy of Alfred North Whitehead (American Philosophy Series)

In Process and Reality and other works, Alfred North Whitehead struggled to come to terms with the impact the new science of quantum mechanics would have on metaphysics.

This ambitious book is the first extended analysis of the intricate relationships between relativity theory, quantum mechanics, and Whitehead's cosmology....

Quantum Causality: Conceptual Issues in the Causal Theory of Quantum Mechanics
Quantum Causality: Conceptual Issues in the Causal Theory of Quantum Mechanics

This is a treatise devoted to the foundations of quantum physics and the role that causality plays in the microscopic world governed by the laws of quantum mechanics. There is no sharp dividing line between physics and philosophy of physics. This is especially true for quantum physics where debate on its interpretation and the status of the...

The Philosophy of Mathematical Practice
The Philosophy of Mathematical Practice
Contemporary philosophy of mathematics offers us an embarrassment of riches. Among the major areas of work one could list developments of the classical foundational programs, analytic approaches to epistemology and ontology of mathematics, and developments at the intersection of history and philosophy of mathematics. But anyone familiar with...
