Can playing World of Warcraft lead to greater self-consciousness? How can we learn about aesthetics, ethics and divine attributes from Zork, Grand Theft Auto, and Civilization? In Philosophy Through Video Games, Jon Cogburn and Mark Silcox – philosophers with game industry experience – investigate the aesthetic appeal of videogames, their effect on our morals, the insights they give us into our understanding of perceptual knowledge, personal identity, artificial intelligence, and the very meaning of life itself, arguing that videogames are popular precisely because they engage with longstanding philosophical problems. 2008: 234x156: 216pp Hb: 978-0-415-98857-5: £60.00 Pb: 978-0-415-98858-2: £19.99 eBook: 978-0-203-87786-9 • AVAILABLE AS AN INSPECTION COPY 0.9 5 $U S

Hume Don Garrett, New York University, USA Beginning with an overview of Hume’s life and work, Don Garrett introduces in clear and accessible style the central aspects of Hume’s thought.

Merleau-Ponty Taylor Carman, Columbia University, USA ’Carman’s accounting is nuanced, closely argued, and exceptionally clear. His introduction covers the whole of Merleau-Ponty’s considerable corpus, tracing its development and exhibiting its continued relevance for contemporary debates in phenomenology and psychology, philosophy of mind, and metaphysics.’ – Wayne Martin, University of Essex, UK In this introduction, Taylor Carman explains and assesses the full range of Merleau-Ponty’s philosophy.

Benedict de Spinoza (1632–77) was one of the towering philosophers of the seventeenth century. Renowned for his metaphysics, he also made significant contributions to understanding the human mind, the emotions, moral philosophy, and political philosophy. Beginning with an overview of Spinoza’s life, Michael Della Rocca carefully unpacks and explains Spinoza’s philosophy: his metaphysics of substance and argument at the centre of his whole system that God is the sole independent substance; Spinoza’s account of the human mind and its relation to the body; his theory that human beings tend towards self-preservation and the role of the emotions; his most famous work, the Ethics, including the problem of free will; and his writings on the state, religion and scripture. Della Rocca concludes with a chapter on Spinoza’s legacy and how modern philosophers, Hume, Hegel, and Nietzsche, responded to Spinoza’s challenge. 2008: 216x138: 360pp Hb: 978-0-415-28329-8: £55.00 Pb: 978-0-415-28330-4: £15.99 eBook: 978-0-203-89458-3 • AVAILABLE AS AN INSPECTION COPY 0.0 1U $ S

CRITICAL THINKING 3RD EDITION

3RD EDITION

Thinking from A to Z

Critical Reasoning

Nigel Warburton

A Practical Introduction What is ‘humpty-dumptying’? Do ‘arguments from analogy’ ever stand up? How do I know when someone is using ‘weasel words’? What’s the difference between a ‘red herring’ and a ‘straw man’?

This superb book, now in its third edition, will help anyone who wants to argue well and think critically. Using witty and topical examples, this fully-updated edition includes many new entries on topics such as ’least and worst answer’. Thinking from A to Z may not help you win every argument, but it will definitely give you the power to tell a good one from a bad one. 2007: 172x119: 176pp Pb: 978-0-415-43371-6: £9.99 • AVAILABLE AS AN INSPECTION COPY 5 9.7 1U $ S

Anne Thomson We all engage in the process of reasoning, but we don’t always pay attention to whether we are doing it well. This book offers the opportunity to practise reasoning in a clear-headed and critical way, with the aims of developing an awareness of the importance of reasoning well and of improving the reader’s skill in analyzing and evaluating arguments. In this third edition, Anne Thomson has updated and revised the book to include fresh and topical examples which guide students through the processes of critical reasoning in a clear and engaging way. In addition, two new chapters on evaluating the credibility of evidence and decision making and dilemmas will fully equip students to reason well. By the end of the book students should be able to: • identify flaws in arguments

2ND EDITION

• analyze the reasoning in newspaper articles, books and speeches

Paradoxes from A to Z

3RD EDITION

Simple Formal Logic

Critical Thinking

With Common-Sense Symbolic Techniques

A Concise Guide

Arnold vander Nat

Tracy Bowell, University of Waikato, New Zealand and Gary Kemp, University of Glasgow, UK

Ideal for students with no background in logic or philosophy, Simple Formal Logic provides a full system of logic adequate to handle everyday and philosophical reasoning. By keeping out artificial techniques that aren’t natural to our everyday thinking process, Simple Formal Logic trains students to think through formal logical arguments for themselves, ingraining in them the habits of sound reasoning.

Critical Thinking: A Concise Guide is a much-needed guide to argument analysis and a clear introduction to thinking clearly and rationally for oneself. Through precise and accessible discussion, this book equips students with the essential skills required to tell a good argument from a bad one. Key features of the book are: • clear, jargon-free discussion of key concepts in argumentation • how to avoid common confusions surrounding words such as ‘truth’, ‘knowledge’ and ‘opinion’ • how to identify and evaluate the most common types of argument • how to spot fallacies in arguments and tell good reasoning from bad • chapter summaries, glossaries and useful exercises. This third edition has been revised and updated throughout, with new exercises, and up-to-date topical examples, including: ‘real-world’ arguments; practical reasoning; understanding quantitative data, statistics, and the rhetoric used about them; scientific reasoning; and expanded discussion of conditionals, ambiguity, vagueness, slippery slope arguments, and arguments by analogy. The Critical Thinking companion website (www.routledge.com/textbooks/9780415471831), features a wealth of further resources, including examples and case studies, sample questions, practice questions and answers, and student activities.

Simple Formal Logic features: • a companion website (www.routledge.com/textbooks/9780415997454) with student worksheets, logic software, and teachers’ manual • two levels of exercises for beginners and more advanced students • a glossary of terms, symbols and abbreviations.

Series: Routledge Contemporary Introductions to Philosophy In this volume, Daniel W. McShea and Alex Rosenberg – a biologist and a philosopher, respectively – join forces to create a new gateway to the philosophy of biology; making the major issues accessible and relevant to biologists and philosophers alike. Exploring concepts such as supervenience; the controversies about genocentrism and genetic determinism; and the debate about major transitions central to contemporary thinking about macroevolution, the authors lay out the broad terms in which we should assess the impact of biology on human capacities, social institutions and ethical values. 2007: 234x156: 256pp Hb: 978-0-415-31592-0: £60.00 Pb: 978-0-415-31593-7: £19.99 eBook: 978-0-203-92699-4 • AVAILABLE AS AN INSPECTION COPY 0.0 5 1U $ S

Arguing About Religion

Arguing About Political Philosophy

Edited by Kevin Timpe, University of San Diego, USA

Edited by Matt Zwolinski, University of San Diego, USA

Series: Arguing About Philosophy

Series: Arguing About Philosophy

Arguing About Religion is an ideal collection for students interested in contemporary philosophy of religion and related disciplines. This volume brings together primary readings from over forty of the world’s leading philosophers of religion, covering a broad range of issues. Set alongside these works of academic philosophy are excerpts from controversial popular works by Daniel Dennett and Richard Dawkins, in order to introduce the philosophical issues in a way that demonstrates their relevance to everyday life and sets them in the context of contemporary cultural discourse.

Arguing About Political Philosophy is an engaging survey of political philosophy perfect for beginning and advanced undergraduates. Selections cover classic philosophical sources such as Rousseau and Locke, as well as contemporary writers such as Nozick and Dworkin. As well as standard topics such as political authority and distributive justice, special attention is given to global issues which have become especially pressing in recent years, such as the right of individuals or groups to secede, the nature of global distributive justice, the morality of immigration, and the moral status of war and terrorism.

The volume is divided into six parts, helping the student get to grips with classic and core arguments. Topics covered include: • methodological issues in philosophy of religion

The volume is divided into three parts – Foundational Concepts; Government, the Economy and Morality; and Global Justice – helping the student get to grips with classic and core arguments and emerging debates in:

• God’s nature and existence

• political authority

• evil and divine hiddenness

• rights

• providence and interaction

• justice

• the afterlife

• political economy

• religion and contemporary life.

• property rights

Featuring lucid general and section introductions and a glossary by volume editor Kevin Timpe, Arguing About Religion is an ideal starting point for students coming to philosophy of religion for the first time.

• distributive justice

POLITICAL PHILOSOPHY NEW

Hannah Arendt

An Introduction to Philosophy and International Relations

Simon Swift, University of Leeds, UK Series: Routledge Critical Thinkers Hannah Arendt’s work offers a powerful critical engagement with the cultural and philosophical crises of mid-twentieth-century Europe. Her idea of the banality of evil, made famous after her report on the trial of the Nazi war criminal, Adolf Eichmann, remains controversial to this day.

Patrick Thaddeus Jackson, American University, Washington DC, USA Series: New International Relations Over the past two decades, philosophical considerations have become more prominent in mainstream discussions in the field of International Relations (IR). There has been a wave of discussions about how we go about producing knowledge of global politics, paying close attention to recent developments in the philosophy of science. Presuming little or no philosophical background, this book both informs scholars about the variety of philosophical positions available and establishes the importance to ordinary IR scholarship of taking such position more or less explicitly. • Part one informs IR scholars of the ’lay of the land’ of contemporary philosophy of science, addressing such issues as the fate of logical positivism and the place of pragmatism vis-à-vis realism

Her impassioned plea for the creation of a public sphere through free, critical thinking and dialogue provides a significant resource for contemporary thought. Covering her key ideas from The Origins of Totalitarianism and The Human Condition as well as some of her less well-known texts, and focussing in detail on Arendt’s idea of storytelling, this guide brings Arendt’s work into the twenty-first century while helping students to understand its urgent relevance for the contemporary world.

• Part two demonstrates and explains how central philosophical considerations are to the practice of IR scholarship and illustrates how philosophical considerations shape and give rise to methodological considerations.

2008: 198x129: 192pp Hb: 978-0-415-42585-8: £55.00 Pb: 978-0-415-42586-5: £12.99 eBook: 978-0-203-88967-1 • AVAILABLE AS AN INSPECTION COPY

Demonstrating how issues relating to the status and character of knowledge of global politics cannot help but be extremely relevant to the practice of IR scholarship, this text is a vital tool in the advanced study of IR and global politics.

PHENOMENOLOGY

Introduction to Phenomenology

The Phenomenological Mind

Dermot Moran

An Introduction to Philosophy of Mind and Cognitive Science

Written in a clear and engaging style, Introduction to Phenomenology charts the course of the phenomenological movement from its origins in Husserl to its transformation by Derrida. It describes the thought of Heidegger and Sartre, phenomenology’s most famous thinkers, and introduces and assesses the distinctive use of phenomenology by some of its lesser known exponents, such as Levinas, Arendt and Gadamer. 1999: 234x156: 592pp Hb: 978-0-415-18372-7: £80.00 Pb: 978-0-415-18373-4: £19.99 • AVAILABLE AS AN INSPECTION COPY 00 .5 1 $U S

The Phenomenology Reader Edited by Dermot Moran and Tim Mooney The first comprehensive anthology of classic writings from phenomenology’s major thinkers. Selected readings chart phenomenology’s most famous thinkers. Each author and their writings is introduced and placed in context by the editors.

Shaun Gallagher, University of Central Florida, USA and Dan Zahavi, University of Copenhagen, Denmark ’[Though] Gallagher and Zahavi call their book an introduction, it is far more than an introduction. It is the most comprehensive work on what phenomenology has to say about cognition and consciousness and how it relates to the scientific study of cognition to date.’ – Andrew Brook, Abstracta ‘This excellent and much-needed book offers the first comprehensive introduction to phenomenological philosophy of mind. Written by two internationally renowned contributors to this exciting and fast-growing interdisciplinary field, it will be an indispensable resource for students and researchers alike.’ – Matthew Ratcliffe, Durham University, UK The Phenomenological Mind is the first book to properly introduce fundamental questions about the mind from the perspective of phenomenology. Key questions and topics covered include: • What is phenomenology? • naturalizing phenomenology and the empirical cognitive sciences • phenomenology and consciousness

Please visit www.routledge.com/philosophy for a full table of contents.

• consciousness and self-consciousness, including perception and action • time and consciousness, including William James

PHENOMENOLOGY NEW

Jean-Paul Sartre Christine Daigle, Brock University, Canada Series: Routledge Critical Thinkers As the founding figure of the movement known as ‘existentialism’, Jean-Paul Sartre was a key figure in twentieth-century literature and philosophy, whose writings changed the course of critical thought. Christine Daigle sets Sartre’s thought in context, and considers a number of key ideas in detail, charting their impact and continuing influence, including: • consciousness and being • freedom • interpersonal relationships • the human condition • committed literature • politics. Introducing both literary and philosophical texts by Sartre, this volume makes Sartre’s ideas newly accessible to students of literary and cultural studies as well as to students of continental philosophy and French.
