Architecture of Reason by Robert Audi

Book Description

This book sets out a comprehensive theory of rationality applicable to both practical and theoretical reason. In both domains, Audi explains the role of experience in grounding rationality, delineates the structure of central elements - particuarly belief, desire and action - and attacks the egocentric view of rationality. He defends a rational altruism that supports important moral principles, and concludes with an account of global rationality - the overall rationality of persons.

Books By Author Robert Audi

Means, Ends, and Persons by Robert Audi Means, Ends, and Persons, Hardback (January 2016)

This book is a full-scale account of the morally important ideas of treating persons merely as means and treating them as ends. Audi clarifies these independently of Kant, but with implications for understanding him, and presents a theory of conduct that enhances their usefulness both in ethical theory and in practical ethics.

Rational Belief by Robert Audi Rational Belief, Paperback (August 2015)

This book is a wide-ranging treatment of central topics in epistemology. It provides conceptions of belief and knowledge, offers a theory of how they are grounded in our experience and in the social context of testimony, and connects them with the will and with action, moral responsibility, and intellectual virtue.

Cambridge Dictionary of Philosophy by Robert Audi Cambridge Dictionary of Philosophy, Paperback (April 2015)

This is a rich, readable one-volume compendium of philosophical ideas and definitions, a tool for anyone seriously interested in philosophy.
