    Fields Of Sense: A New Realist Ontology
    Markus Gabriel - Hardback - Edinburgh University Press
    Markus Gabriel presents us with an innovative answer to one of the central questions of philosophy: what is the meaning of 'being' - or, rather, 'existence' - and how does that concept relate to the totality of what there is? This ontology hinges on Gabriel's concept of fields of sense, which shows that, fundamentally, he opposes the idea that mathematics or the natural sciences could ever replace a richer philosophical understanding of what there is and how we know about it.

    Form And Object: A Treatise On Things
    Tristan Garcia - Hardback - Edinburgh University Press
    What is a thing? What is an object? Tristan Garcia decisively overturns 100 years of Heideggerian orthodoxy about the supposed derivative nature of objects and in so doing provides deep insightss about the world and our place in it. Tristan Garcia's original and systematic formal ontology of things strips them of any determination, intensity or depth. From this radical ontological poverty, he develops encyclopaedic regional ontologies of objects.

  • Cover scan of The Myth Of Evil
    The Myth Of Evil
    Phillip Cole - Hardback - Edinburgh University Press
    'The Myth of Evil' explores a contradiction: the belief that human beings cannot commit acts of pure evil and the evidence that pure evil truly is a human capacity. This contradiction is clearest in the extreme acts of war criminals, terrorists, serial murderers and children who kill.
