The author considers the wars against fascism and communism from the past, and draws cautionary lessons. But he also draws, from those past experiences, a liberal program that departs in fundamental respects from the policies of the Bush administration. ISBN: 0393325555. Our Book No: 16065. $12 AUD.

Cambridge, MA: MIT Press. 319 pp. Hardback octavo, dustjacket, very good plus condition (in very good plus dustjacket). Game theory models are ubiquitous in economics, common in political science, and increasingly used in psychology and sociology.

It can illuminate the rational choices made by characters in texts ranging from the Bible to Joseph Heller's Catch-22, and can explicate strategic questions in law, history, and philosophy. 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.

Human tastes in the arts, Dutton argues, are an evolutionary trait or instinct, shaped by Darwinian selection. They are not, as the past century of art criticism and academic theory would have it, just socially constructed. Our love of beauty is inborn, and many aesthetic tastes are shared across remote cultures. One example is the widespread preference for landscapes with water and distant trees, like the savannas where humans evolved. Using forceful logic and hard evidence, Dutton shows that we must premise art criticism on an understanding of evolution, not on abstract theory. He restores the place of beauty, pleasure, and skill as artistic values. ISBN: 9780199580736. Our Book No: 17726. $15 AUD.

86. Fiengo, Robert; May, Robert (2006). De Lingua Belief (1st ed). 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.

93. Freeman, Anthony (editor) (2001). The Emergence of Consciousness [Journal of Consciousness Studies Special Issue]. 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. Emergence theory offers a compromise: the mind emerges from the physical body but the whole person, mind and body, is more than the sum of the physical parts. Philosopher Robert Van Gulick gives a clear and masterly overview and comparison of the current emergent and reductive approaches. The editor's own chapter argues for the radical proposal that even God is an emergent property. ISBN: 0907845185. Our Book No: 16008. $20 AUD.

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.

Plain persons tend to accept that free will exists and is inconsistent with determinism, but this commonsense position is widely debunked by professional philosophers and cognitive scientists. In this special issue of the Journal of Consciousness Studies, David Hodgson defends a simple, robust account of the plain person's position on free will, as well as supporting equally robust views of personal responsibility for conduct. In a lively debate, his ideas are then discussed and challenged by ten philosophers and scientists of varying opinions, including Robert Kane, Henry Stapp, and veteran philosopher of mind J. J. C. Smart, with a response by Hodgson, who is a judge of the Supreme Court of New South Wales, Sydney. ISBN: 1845400275. Our Book No: 16009. $15 AUD.

London: XPress Reprints / SCM Press. 255 pp. Paperback small octavo, very good condition, few tiny dents & scuffs rear cover, minor edgewear. A great introduction to theology, particularly the problems about language that confront the modern theologian. Analytical philosophy, existentialism, Biblical criticism and continental neo-Protestant theology, all contribute to a single argument about the problems of human likeness to God (and anthropomorphism) with precision. Lucidly explains the issues raised for Christian belief both by empiricist analytical philosophy and by existentialist hermeneutics. Following Wittgenstein, he holds that we must allow each linguistic form to disclose its own logic - to speak in terms of myth, symbol and analogy. Existentialist interpretation cannot exhaust the meaning of theological language, otherwise we are reduced to anthropology. We must progress to ontology - to talk about the transcendent Being of God. A timely counter-poise to over-facile analyses of the logic of theology that result in a kind of Christian atheism. ISBN: 1859310249. Our Book No: 17486. $30 AUD.

Sydney, Kensington: NewSouth / University of New South Wales Press. 200 pp. Paperback small octavo, very good plus condition, minimal edgewear, autograph (author's written dedication title page). Populism is currently seen as a dirty word, because of Brexit and the election of Donald Trump. However, it is better seen as a backlash against free market globalisation, that can be harnessed as a positive force in difficult times. This timely book exposes the failures of globalisation: greedy banks, predatory privatisation, corporate tax avoidance, and a growing underclass of temporary foreign workers. Progressive populism could address the genuine economic grievances of everyday people, without scapegoating immigrants or ethnic minorities, that is, it may be the best way to defeat the racist backlash of right-wing populism.

Combines philosophy and belles-lettres, and does not separate literature from history, philosophy and social discourse, thereby broadening the role of criticism from celebration and orthodoxy to re-experiencing and questioning.

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, minimal edgewear. The study of conscious experience has not kept pace with the dramatic advances in PET, fMRI and other brain-scanning technologies. 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 on the practical issues involved.
