Problem of Political Authority by Michael Huemer Problem of Political Authority, Hardback (October 2012)

The state is often ascribed a special sort of authority, one that obliges citizens to obey its commands and entitles the state to enforce those commands through threats of violence. This book argues that this notion is a moral illusion: no one has ever possessed that sort of authority.

Ethical Intuitionism by Michael Huemer Ethical Intuitionism, Paperback (December 2007)

A defence of ethical intuitionism where (i) there are objective moral truths; (ii) we know these through an immediate, intellectual awareness, or 'intuition'; and (iii) knowing them gives us reasons to act independent of our desires. The author rebuts the major objections to this theory and shows the difficulties in alternative theories of ethics.

Epistemology by Michael Huemer Epistemology, Paperback (April 2002)

This comprehensive anthology of classic and contemporary readings by leading philosophers complements Robert Audi's Epistemology: A Contemporary Introduction (Routledge, 1997). Each topic is carefully introduced by the editor.
