The author defends nonconceptualism, the claim that perceptual experience is nonconceptual and has nonconceptual content. Continuing the heated and complex debate surrounding this topic over the past two decades, she offers a sustained defense of a novel version of the view, Modest Nonconceptualism, and provides a systematic overview of some of the central controversies in the debate. An explication of the notion of nonconceptual content and a distinction between nonconceptualist views of different strengths starts off the volume, then the author goes on to defend participants in the debate over nonconceptual content against the allegation that their failure to distinguish between a state view and a content view of (non)conceptualism leads to fatal problems for their views. Next, she makes a case for nonconceptualism by refining some of the central arguments for the view, such as the arguments from fineness of grain, from contradictory contents, from animal and infant perception, and from concept acquisition. Then, two central objections against nonconceptualism are rebutted in a novel way: the epistemological objection and the objection from objectivity. Modest Nonconceptualism allows for perceptual experiences to involve some conceptual elements. It emphasizes the relevance of concept employment for an understanding of conceptual and nonconceptual mental states and identifies the nonconceptual content of experience with scenario content. It insists on the possibility of genuine content-bearing perceptual experience without concept possession and is thus in line with the Autonomy Thesis. Finally, it includes an account of perceptual justification that relies on the external contents of experience and belief, yet is compatible with epistemological internalism. Eva Schmidt is a Research Assistant at the Department of Philosophy at Saarland University, Germany, and a Visiting Lecturer at the University of Luxembourg. Her areas of specialization include philosophy of mind, epistemology, and philosophy of perception. She has published several papers on nonconceptual content and other issues in the philosophy of perception.
This monograph explores the connection between philosophy and theology in Lohmeyers thinking. His philosophical orientation is based on Richard Hönigswalds cognitive theory. For Lohmeyer, the historical question of New Testament contents is inseparably connected with their factual justification. As a result, Lohmeyers thought presents an alternative to purely history-critical research, as well as to the existential interpretation of the Bultmann school of thought.

This book develops an original and comprehensive theory of political liberalism. It defends bold new accounts of the nature of autonomy and individual liberty, the content of distributive justice, and the justification for the authority of the State. The theory that emerges integrates contemporary progressive and pluralistic liberalism into a broadly Aristotelian intellectual tradition. The early chapters of the book challenge the traditional conservative idea of individual liberty-the liberty to dispose of ones property as one wishes-and replace it with a new one, according to which liberty is of equal value to all persons, regardless of economic position. The middle chapters present an original theory of socio-economic justice, arguing that a society in which every citizen enjoys an equal share of liberty should be the distributive goal of the State. It is argued that this goal is incompatible with the existence of large disparities in wealth and economic power, and that ( contra conservative and libertarian economic arguments) such disparities are harmful to the overall health of national and global economies. The final chapters provide an original argument that the State has both a moral duty and a moral right to pursue this program of socio-economic justice ( contra conservative and libertarian moral arguments), and that only the measures necessary to implement this program lie within the morally justifiable limits on the States authority. Though primarily a political work, it spans most areas of practical philosophy-including ethical, social, and legal theory; and meta-ethics, moral psychology, and action theory. And though fundamentally a philosophical work, it incorporates research from a number of fields-including decision theory, economics, political science, and jurisprudence; primatology, neuroscience, and psychology; and history, anthropology, sociology, and ecology-and is sure to be of interest to a wide range of scholars and students. James Sherman is a lecturer in the Program in Ethics, Society, and Law at Trinity College, University of Toronto. He has been a research fellow of the University of Torontos Centre for Ethics, and the recipient of a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada fellowship.

Diese Untersuchung stellt dar, inwiefern den Christen des späten ersten Jahrhunderts ein neues, vom christlichen Glauben bestimmtes Leben innerhalb eines weiterhin nichtchristlichen Umfelds nötig und möglich erschien. Dabei werden christliche Orientierungsrichtlinien für das Verhalten von Mann und Frau in der Ehe und für das Verhältnis von Eltern und Kindern vor dem Hintergrund des griechisch-römischen philosophischen Diskurses im mediterranen Raum des 1. Jahrhunderts n. Chr. aufgezeigt. Besonders in den Blick genommen werden die bewusst christlich gestalteten Begründungsstrukturen dieser Weisungen mit ihren zugrunde liegenden theologischen Einsichten. Hierbei wird deutlich, dass diese Begründungsstrukturen auch auf die geforderten Verhaltensweisen zurückwirken und somit in engem Zusammenhang mit dem Inhalt der Weisungen zu sehen sind. [New Life in the Old World. The Contribution of Early Christian Writings from the Late First Century in the Discourse on Family Structures of the Greco-Roman World] Dorothee Dettingers study is concerned with how Christians of the late first century regarded it as necessary and possible to lead a new, faith-guided life within a non-Christian context. To this end, Christian guidelines regarding the relationships between men and women in marriage as well as between parents and their children are discussed on the backdrop of the Greco-Roman philosophical discourse in the 1st century Mediterranean. In particular, the study focuses on the specifically Christian character of the justifications of these guidelines and their underlying theological insights. As is shown, the structure of these justifications retroacts on the demanded kind of conduct and is thus closely tied to the content of the respective guidelines.
This book offers a challenge to certain epistemic features of belief, resulting in a unified and coherent picture of the epistemology of belief. The author examines current ideas in a number of areas, beginning with the truth-directed nature of belief in the context of the so-called Moores paradoxes. He then investigates the sensitivity of beliefs to evidence by exploring how sensory experiences can confer justifications on the beliefs they give rise to, and provides an account of the basing relation problem. The consequences of these arguments are carefully considered, particularly the issues involving the problem of easy knowledge and warrant transmission. Finally, he focuses on the purported fallibility of beliefs and our knowledge of their contents, arguing that the fallible/infallible distinction is best understood in terms of externalist/internalist conceptions of knowledge, and that the thesis of content externalism does not threaten the privileged character of self-knowledge.

An unprecedented, captivating narrative of the Nazi rise to power, the Holocaust, and Hitler´s postinvasion plans for Russia told through the recently discovered lost diary of Alfred Rosenberg - Hitler´s ´philosopher´ and architect of Nazi ideology. Only recently discovered by former FBI agent Robert Wittman, the diary of Nazi philosopher Alfred Rosenberg, who led the Nazi party when Hitler was interned in 1923, is a groundbreaking document and an object of rumour, obsession and evil. Filled with observations, conversations and Nazi plans, it gives new details of Hitler´s rise to power and personal governance of the Reich. Not simply the Nazi ideological progenitor, Rosenberg was a core member of Hitler´s inner circle: his ideas for the Third Reich and the destruction it wrought laid the foundations for a brainwashed nation and gave its people the justification for the slaughter of millions; he helped plan the Nazi invasion and subsequent occupation of the Soviet Union and was named Reich Minister for the Eastern Territories. With the first access to the diary´s contents, The Devil´s Diary is the thrilling story of Rosenberg; Robert Kempner, the German-born Jewish Nuremberg lawyer who prosecuted Göring and Frick and stole the diary; Henry Mayer, the archivist who has doggedly been searching for it for decades; and Bob Wittman, the former FBI agent who finally found it and returned it to its rightful place. 1.
