Paradoxes by R. M Sainsbury( )

83 editions published between 1987 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 2,336 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A paradox can be defined as an unacceptable conclusion derived by apparently acceptable reasoning from apparently acceptable premises. Many paradoxes raise serious philosophical problems, and they are associated with crises of thought and revolutionary advances. The expanded and revised third edition of this intriguing book considers a range of knotty paradoxes including Zeno's paradoxical claim that the runner can never overtake the tortoise, a new chapter on paradoxes about morals, paradoxes about belief, and hardest of all, paradoxes about truth. The discussion uses a minimum of technicality but also grapples with complicated and difficult considerations, and is accompanied by helpful questions designed to engage the reader with the arguments. The result is not only an explanation of paradoxes but also an excellent introduction to philosophical thinking."--

19 editions published between 2002 and 2014 in English and held by 1,333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Reference without referents by R. M Sainsbury( )

36 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 1,227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Reference is a central topic in philosophy of language, and has been the main focus of discussion about how language relates to the world. R.M. Sainsbury sets out a new approach to the concept, which promises to bring to an end some long-standing debates in semantic theory. Lucid and accessible, and written with a minimum of technicality, Sainsbury's book also includes a useful historical survey. It will be of interest to those working in logic, mind, and metaphysics as well as essential reading for philosophers of language."--Jacket

Logical forms : an introduction to philosophical logic by R. M Sainsbury( Book )

37 editions published between 1991 and 2006 in English and held by 633 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When is a reason for doing or believing something a good reason? Over the past century, logicʹs contribution to answering this question has typically involved finding "logical forms": that is, using a special notation to bring out logical features more clearly. The correct identification of logical forms has been held to be important not only to logic but also to philosophy. Bertrand Russell coined the phrase "philosophical logic" to describe an approach to philosophical problems: find the correct logical form of the problematic sentences, and the problems vanish. Logical Forms explains both the theoretical underpinnings of the approach and the detailed problems involved in finding logical forms in the languages of propositional logic, classical first order logic, modal logic, and some alternatives such as free logic, binary and substitutional quantifiers. -- Book cover
Seven puzzles of thought and how to solve them : an originalist theory of concepts by R. M Sainsbury( Book )

18 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 439 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thinking about things by R. M Sainsbury( )

8 editions published in 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the blink of an eye, I can redirect my thought from London to Austin, from apples to unicorns, from former president Obama to the mythical flying horse, Pegasus. How is this possible? How can we think about things that do not exist, like unicorns and Pegasus? They are not there to be thought about, yet we think about them just as easily as we think about things that do exist. Thinking About Things addresses these and related questions, taking as its framework a representational theory of mind. It explains how mental states are attributed, what their aboutness consists in, whether or not they are relational, and whether any of them involve nonexistent things"--

7 editions published in 1997 in English and Italian and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Homo hierarchicus : the caste system and its implications by Louis Dumont( Book )

10 editions published between 1970 and 2010 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Louis Dumont's modern classic, here presented in an enlarged, revised, and corrected second edition, simultaneously supplies the reader with the most cogent statement on the Indian castle system and its organizing principles and a provocative advance in the comparison of societies on the basis of their underlying ideologies. Dumont moves gracefully from the ethnographic data to the level of the hierarchical ideology encrusted in ancient religious texts which are revealed as the governing conception of the contemporary caste structure. On yet another plane of analysis, homo hierarchicus is contrasted with his modern Western antithesis, homo aequalis. This edition includes a lengthy new preface in which Dumont reviews the academic discussion inspired by Homo hierarchicus and answers his critics. A new postface, which sketches the theoretical and comparative aspects of the concept of hierarchy, and three significant appendixes previously omitted from the English translation complete in this innovative and influential work
