Octopus Balls
By Edward E. Rochon
You set the price! Words: 3,530. Language: English. Published: April 20, 2013. Category: Nonfiction » Philosophy » Epistemology
An essay on human perception. The heart of the matter is how man's point of view (geometric and geometric analogy) influences his perception of the truth. Physical perception, promises, subtleties of acting, the question of otherness, and the metaphysical foundation of our existence are covered. The cover image is deliberately childish. The subject matter is important to everyone, including kids.
Del che è & che non è
By Paolo-Ugo Brusa
Series: Studi prosofici. Price: Free! Words: 107,470. Language: Italian. Published: April 3, 2013. Category: Nonfiction » Philosophy » Ethics & moral philosophy
Le culture si spendono per confinare l’inafferrabilità dell’evenienza, che è conseguenza dell’umana libertà. I modi del confinamento fanno appello a idee di razionalità e di socialità che vedono quell’afferrare come indispensabile e doveroso. Qui, come in 'Essere al mondo', si indaga invece l’originaria libertà dei rapporti tra mondo, mente e medio per conoscerla nell’immediatezza del suo darsi.
An Essay concerning Human Enquiry: Exploring the Intersection of Hume and Kant — Perception, Causation and the Limits of Human Understanding
By Sean M. Madden
Price: $2.99 USD. Words: 14,160. Language: English. Published: April 1, 2013. Category: Nonfiction » Philosophy » Epistemology
Metaphysics is the search into existence, our existence within that existence, and our understanding of these existences. That is, how do we know what (or that) we know? This was a key question for Hume and Kant, and one which we shall consider. This essay, therefore, is a philosophical enquiry into human enquiry itself. We shall ask, how is it — and to what extent do — we understand our world?

Nobody Don't Know Nothing
By Myrvin Chester
Price: $4.99 USD. Words: 48,760. Language: English. Published: September 13, 2012. Category: Nonfiction » Philosophy » Epistemology
Thought-provoking philosophy with a smile. The world seems to be full of people who know things. Wherever you turn, there are those who are absolutely sure of this, positive about that, or certain that such and such is the case. This book stands in the face of this knowing and certainty, and denies it all. It states, and aims to show that, in reality: Nobody don’t know nothing.

By Adolfo Sagastume

Básicamente nos interesa indagar en los textos de Deleuze sobre su ontología del devenir y para esto tenemos que remontarnos a la filosofía de los presocráticos y a las propuestas de Aristóteles. Sin embargo, para enganchar este tema con la concepción del tiempo el devenir nos vimos necesitados de incurrir en las propuestas de Nietzsche y Henry Bergson.
