Free Will: A Very Short Introduction, Thomas Pink
5 Free Will: A Very Short Introduction

Thomas Pink

Oxford University Press, New Delhi, India, 2004, 0-19-285358-9 / 9780192853585, First Edition, Paperback, New, New, 11 Cms x 18 Cms 
Every day we seem to make and act upon all kinds of free choices - some of them trivial, and some so consequential that they may change the course of our life, or even the course of history. But are these choices really free? Or are we compelled to act the way we do by factors beyond our control? Is the feeling that we could have made different decisions just an illusion? And if our choices are not free, why should we be held morally responsible for our actions? This Very Short Introduction, written by a leading authority on the subject, looks at a range of issues surrounding this fundamental philosophical question, exploring it from the ideas of the Greek and medieval philosophers through to the thoughts of present-day thinkers. It provides a interesting and incisive introduction to this perennially fascinating subject. Printed Pages: 144 with 15 b/w illustrations. 003096

10 The Cambridge Companion to Augustine

Eleonore Stump and Norman Kretzman (eds.)

Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, UK, 0-521-65985-X / 9780521659857, Paperback, New, 
It is hard to overestimate the importance of the work of Augustine of Hippo, both in his own period and in the subsequent history of Western philosophy. Until the thirteenth century, when he may have had a competitor in Thomas Aquinas, he was the most important philosopher of the medieval period. Many of his views, including his theory of the just war, his account of time and eternity, his understanding of the will, his attempted resolution of the problem of evil, and his approach to the relation of faith and reason, have continued to be influential up to the present time. In this volume of specially-commissioned essays, sixteen scholars provide a wide-ranging and stimulating contribution to our understanding of Augustine, covering all the major areas of his philosophy and theology.

The Philosophy of Gottlob Frege, Richard L. Mendelsohn
11 The Philosophy of Gottlob Frege

This analysis of Frege’s views on language and metaphysics in ‘On Sense and Reference? arguably one of the most important philosophical essays of the past hundred years, provides a thorough introduction to the function/argument analysis and applies Frege’s technique to the central notions of predication, identity, existence and truth. Of particular interest is the analysis of the Paradox of Identity and a discussion of three solutions: the little-known Begriffsschrift solution, the sense/reference solution, and Russell’s ‘On Denoting?solution. Russell’s views wend their way through the work, serving as a foil to Frege. Appendices give the proofs of the first 68 propositions of Begriffsschrift in modern notation. This book will be of interest to students and professionals in philosophy and linguistics. ?Detailed analysis of Frege’s thought and the philosophical issues he grappled with ?Makes difficult material accessible and understandable Contents 1. Biography; 2. Function and argument; 3. Sense and reference; 4. Frege’s Begriffsschrift theory of identity; 5. Concept and object; 6. Names and descriptions; 7. Existence; 8.
