Realism and antirealism in metaphysics, science and language

Festschrift for Mario Alai

The book includes several essays written by prominent contemporary philosophers as well as by younger researchers in honor of Mario Alai on the occasion of his 70th birthday. The single original contributions delve into different foundational issues in the philosophy of science, epistemology, philosophy of language, and metaphysics, and engage in rigorous analyses of the structure and workings of different forms of human knowledge. This fruitful variety of perspectives reflects the wide-ranging and multifaceted character of Mario Alai's philosophical work and interests. The book also includes an extensive reply written by Alai himself, which amply testifies to his lifelong commitment to passionate yet fair-minded philosophical debate.

Jan Faye: The Biological and Social Dimensions of Human Knowledge

The purpose of this book is to demonstrate that natural selection has adapted human sense impressions to deliver reliable information without meeting the traditional commitments for having knowledge. In connection with memory, sensory and bodily information provides an animal with experiential knowledge. Experiential knowledge helps an animal to navigate its environment. Moreover, experiential knowledge has different functions depending on whether the deliverance of information stems from the organism’s external or internal senses.

Jesus Pedro Bonilla Zamora: La nada nadea

Nihilism (the thesis that existence lacks an absolute, transcendent or objective value) is supposed to be the dominant philosophy of our time, but very few philosophers have expressly defended it. This book explains in accessible language the meanings of nihilism and its historical evolution, and shows why its main manifestations (atheism, ethical relativism, determinism and relativism) are extremely reasonable. The book ends by proposing a "friendly nihilism." More info

AIPS a été créée en 1947 par un religieux dominicain belge, le Père Stanislas Dockx, philosophe et théologien mais aussi physicien et mathématicien, soucieux de synthèse et de critique épistémologique.

Le but de l'Académie Internationale de Philosophie des Sciences est de tenter de faire synthèse sur des questions essentielles de philosophie des sciences, en interdisciplinarité, au-delà de tous les clivages (nationaux, linguistiques, institutionnels, d'options philosophiques), dans un esprit de recherche libre et exigeante, dont on partage les résultats en vue d'un débat critique et intellectuellement fructueux, dans un cadre favorisant le contact personnel et cordial entre chercheurs.
