Situated Self by J.T. Ismael

Book Description

J. T. Ismael's monograph is an ambitious contribution to the metaphysics and the philosophy of language and mind. She tackles a philosophical question whose origin goes back to Descartes: What am I? The self is not a mere thing among things - but if so, what is it, and what is its relationship to the world? Ismael is an original and creative thinker who tries to understand our problematic concepts about the self and how they are related to our use of language in particular.

How Physics Makes Us Free by J.T. Ismael How Physics Makes Us Free, Hardback (March 2016)

J.T. Ismael's book will be the first to truly examine the question of what physics actually tell us about whether or not we are free to act. Her conclusions are surprising and engaging, and importantly show that physics does actually not say that we are not free.
