The refutation of determinism: an essay in philosophical logic by Michael Richard Ayers( Book )

26 editions published between 1968 and 2018 in English and held by 691 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Perhaps everyone who can think has the concept of possibility, but no one understands it. The metaphysical theory of Determinism is a symptom of this lack of understanding, and the inconclusiveness of its opponents' arguments indicates that the lack is universal. In this book, first published in 1968, the author shows that there are a number of different kinds on non-logical possibility, subtly interrelated, each requiring separate explanation. An original contribution to the subject, it is essential reading for all students of philosophy

7 editions published between 1987 and 2004 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This progran examines the philosophies of British empiricists Locke and Berkeley. Michael Ayers interprets Locke's skeptical theory that all knowledge is sensory and speculative, and that the true nature of the world can never be known, as an attack on Descarte's theory of innate ideas. Conversely, Berkeley insists the we cannot have sensory knowledge of material substances because they exist only in our mind

The Cambridge History of Seventeenth-Century Philosophy by Daniel Garber( )

5 editions published between 1998 and 2008 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Cambridge History of Seventeenth-Century Philosophy offers a uniquely comprehensive and authoritative overview of early-modern philosophy written by an international team of specialists. As with previous Cambridge Histories of Philosophy the subject is treated by topic and theme, and since history does not come packaged in neat bundles, the subject is also treated with great temporal flexibility, incorporating frequent reference to medieval and Renaissance ideas. The basic structure of the volumes corresponds to the way an educated seventeenth-century European might have organised the domain of philosophy. Thus, the history of science, religious doctrine, and politics feature very prominently
