Keywords in Radical Philosophy and Education (Critical Understanding in Education)
While education is an inherently political field and practice, and while the political struggles that radical philosophy takes up necessarily involve education, there remains much to be done at the intersection of education and radical philosophy. That so many intense political struggles today actually center educational processes and...
Necessity Lost: Modality and Logic in Early Analytic Philosophy, Volume 1
Necessity Lost: Modality and Logic in Early Analytic Philosophy, Volume 1
A long tradition, going back to Aristotle, conceives of logic in terms of necessity and possibility: a deductive argument is correct if it is not possible for the conclusion to be false when the premises are true. A relatively unknown feature of the analytic tradition in philosophy is that, at its very inception, this venerable conception of the...
Chaos: An Introduction for Applied Mathematicians
Chaos: An Introduction for Applied Mathematicians
This is a textbook on chaos and nonlinear dynamics, written by applied mathematicians for applied mathematicians. It aims to tread a middle ground between the mathematician's rigour and the physicist’s pragmatism.

While the subject matter is now classical and can be found in many other books, what distinguishes this book...

Enchanting Robots: Intimacy, Magic, and Technology (Social and Cultural Studies of Robots and AI)
Enchanting Robots: Intimacy, Magic, and Technology (Social and Cultural Studies of Robots and AI)
This book argues that robots are enchanting humans (as potential intimate partners), because humans are enchanting robots (by performing magical thinking), and that these processes are a part of a significant re-enchantment of the “modern” world. As a foundation, the author examines arguments for and against intimate relationships...
Introduction to the Theory of Computation
Introduction to the Theory of Computation

You are about to embark on the study of a fascinating and important subject: the theory of computation. It comprises the fundamental mathematical properties of computer hardware, software, and certain applications thereof. In studying this subject we seek to determine what can and cannot be computed, how quickly, with how much memory,...

Queer Embodiment: Monstrosity, Medical Violence, and Intersex Experience (Expanding Frontiers: Interdisciplinary Approaches to Studies of Women, Gender, and Sexuality)
Queer Embodiment: Monstrosity, Medical Violence, and Intersex Experience (Expanding Frontiers: Interdisciplinary Approaches to Studies of Women, Gender, and Sexuality)
Merging critical theory, autobiography, and sexological archival research, Queer Embodiment provides insight into what it means, and has meant, to have a legible body in the West. Hilary Malatino explores how and why intersexuality became an anomalous embodiment requiring correction and how contesting this pathologization...

Euclidean & Non-Euclidean Geometries: Development and History

This is the definitive presentation of the history, development and philosophical significance of non-Euclidean geometry as well as of the rigorous foundations for it and for elementary Euclidean geometry, essentially according to Hilbert. Appropriate for liberal arts students, prospective high school teachers, math. majors, and even bright high...

The Machine Question: Critical Perspectives on AI, Robots, and Ethics
The Machine Question: Critical Perspectives on AI, Robots, and Ethics

One of the enduring concerns of moral philosophy is deciding who or what is deserving of ethical consideration. Much recent attention has been devoted to the "animal question" -- consideration of the moral status of nonhuman animals. In this book, David Gunkel takes up the "machine question": whether and to what extent...

Algorithms in Modern Mathematics and Computer Science: Proceedings, Urgench
Algorithms in Modern Mathematics and Computer Science: Proceedings, Urgench

Some TIME ago a group of mathematicians and computer scientists (including the editors of this volume) thought of making a scientific pilgrimage to the birthplace of al-Khw&rizmf, the outstanding ninth-century mathematician who gave his name to the word "algorithm". As his name indicates, al-Khwarizmi came from the Khorezm...
