Much of Brams's analysis is based on the theory of moves (TOM), which is grounded in game theory, and which he develops gradually and applies systematically throughout. ISBN: 9780262015226.

Oxford: Oxford Paperbacks / Oxford University Press. 414 pp. Paperback thick octavo, good plus condition, some foxing edges (mainly top edge), minor edgewear. The Australian professor of philosophy unveils a major new theory of consciousness, adding a fresh perspective to the subject that is sure to spark debate about our understanding of the mind for years to come. What is consciousness? How do physical processes in the brain give rise to the self-aware mind, and to feelings as profoundly varied as love or hate, aesthetic pleasure or spiritual yearning? Chalmers argues that all forms of physicalism (whether reductive or non-reductive) that have dominated modern philosophy and science fail to account for the existence (that is, presence in reality) of consciousness itself. He proposes an alternative dualistic view he calls naturalistic dualism. ISBN: 0195117891. Our Book No: 26889. $20 AUD.

Cambridge, MA: Bradford / MIT Press. 179 pp. Paperback octavo, good plus condition, prelim page removed, otherwise excellent condition. De lingua beliefs are those about everyday conversations, when we examine the language we use. We wonder about what words mean, to whom a name refers, whether a sentence is true. The focus of this book is on the beliefs we have about the semantic values of linguistic expressions, exploring the genesis of these beliefs, and how they explain how we use and understand language. Examines the resources available to us for generating linguistic beliefs, and considers how linguistic theory characterizes the formal, syntactic identity of the linguistic beliefs. The key insight is that the content of beliefs about semantic values is part of what we say by our utterances. This has direct consequences for explaining the information in identity statements, and the possibilities for substitution in attributions of propositional attitudes. ISBN: 0262062577.

Thorverton, UK: Imprint Academic. 166 pp. Paperback octavo, very good plus condition. How does the conscious mind relate to the physical body? Two common views from the past offered the stark choice between dualism in which mind and body were quite separate, and physicalism in which the mind was in fact nothing but the physical brain. Both these views are now widely rejected.

95. Gaita, Raimond (2005). The Philosopher's Dog: Friendships with Animals. New York: Random House. 220 pp. Paperback, as new condition. The Australian philosopher has always been fascinated by animals - their obvious intelligence and disturbing brutality, their uncanny responsiveness to our moods and needs, the deep feelings they elicit from us and seem to return. In this marvellous book, he trains the lens of philosophy on the mystery and beauty of the animals he has known and loved best. One of those rare works that engages the heart from the very first paragraph. A graceful and engaging stylist, Gaita is lucidly grapples with great thinkers through the ages - from Socrates to Wittgenstein, Descartes to Hannah Arendt. And yet, Gaita frankly acknowledges that he has learned much about the nature of life from his beloved dogs and cat. In the end, he argues that love should be the essence of our bond with animals, the critical factor that guides how we treat them and think about their place in our world. ISBN: 0812970241.

London: Earthscan Publications. 185 pp. Hardback octavo, no jacket as issued, pictorial cover, as new condition. Explores how uncertainty is interpreted and used by policy makers, experts and politicians. It argues that conventional notions of rational, evidence-based policy making - hailed by governments and organisations across the world as the only way to make good policy - is impossible in highly complex and uncertain environments. The blind pursuit of such a rational goal is in fact irrational in a world of competing values and interests. Based on two high-profile case studies: the Iraq War, and climate change policy in the US, UK and Australia. Based on three years' research - including interviews with experts such as Hans Blix, Paul Pillar and Brian Jones. Both case studies show that treatment of uncertainty issues in specialist advice is often determined by how well the advice fits with or contradicts the policy goals and orientation of the politicians. One should not allow the debate to be side-tracked by arguments over whose expert advice is "more right". We must accept that uncertainty in complex issues is unavoidable, and recognise the values and interests that lie at the heart of the issues. Offers a hedging approach; this enables policy makers to manage rather than eliminate uncertainty. ISBN: 9781849710831. Our Book No: 14256. $40 AUD.

To shed light on this darkness, American geology professor explains the scientific process and why society has come to rely on science not only to provide a better life but also to reach verifiable truths no other method can obtain.

Prothero argues that science deniers pose a serious threat to society, as their attempts to subvert the truth have resulted in widespread scientific ignorance, increased risk of global catastrophes, and deaths due to the spread of diseases that could have been prevented.

Basingstoke, Hamps: Palgrave Macmillan. 162 pp. Paperback trade, very good plus condition, figures, minor edgewear, owner's details embossed title page. This biography offers a new perspective on the relationship between Thackeray's life and his novels. It combines an analysis of his philosophy and religion with his life's experiences with women, and acknowledgements of his dependence on writing for a livelihood to provide an explanation for his narrative strategies. Traces Thackeray's composition and revision of sample passages to demonstrate that his narrative strategies were conscious developments. Also demonstrates how Thackeray's critique of the evils of society focused subtly on conventional domestic cruelties, and on the inequities of the world of women, but in a way that could be dismissed and would not necessarily alienate the public upon whose good will his livelihood depended.

240. Sidgwick, Henry; Rawls, John (foreword) (1981). The Methods of Ethics (Facsimile (7th), reprint ed).

This edition, first published in 1981, is an unabridged and unaltered republication of the seventh (1907) Macmillan edition. In the utilitarian tradition, Henry Sidgwick (1838 - 1900), has an important place. This fundamental work is the clearest and most accessible formulation of what is called the "classical utilitarian doctrine". This doctrine holds that the ultimate moral end of social and individual action is the greatest net sum of the happiness of all sentient beings. Happiness is specified (as positive or negative) by the net balance of pleasure over pain, or, as Sidgwick preferred to say, as the net balance of agreeable over disagreeable consciousness.

The View from Within: First-Person Approaches to the Study of Consciousness (Reprint ed) [Journal of Consciousness Studies Special Issue]. Thorverton, UK: Imprint Academic. 314 pp. Paperback octavo, very good plus condition. The study of conscious experience per se has not kept pace with the dramatic advances in PET, fMRI and other brain-scanning technologies. If anything, the standard approaches to examining the view from within involve little more than cataloguing its readily accessible components. Thus the study of lived subjective experience is still at the level of Aristotelian science, leading to a widespread scepticism over the possibility of a truly scientific study of conscious experience. These essays by philosophers, cognitive scientists and religious scholars draw on a wide range of approaches - from phenomenology to meditation - to examine the possibility of a disciplined approach to the study of subjective states, with a focus is on the practical issues involved.
