Dear Academic,
I am delighted to present to you our frst Philosophy
Catalogue. This is a rapidly growing area of publishing for
us with an exciting range of new series. These specialized
series demonstrate our commitment to identifying emergent
and innovative areas of research, with lists that span science,
religion, history and culture.
Romantic Biology, 18901945 is the frst title in our History
and Philosophy of Biology series, followed by a fascinating
edited collection, Natural Kinds and Classifcation in
Scientifc Practice. We are also especially pleased with the
development of our History and Philosophy of Technoscience
series; this already contains six titles, with more on the way.
The signifcant and diverse scholarly activity in this area
is clearly shown by the range of titles: Scientists Expertise
as Performance: Between State and Society, 18601960,
Spaceship Earth in the Environmental Age, 19601990 and
Philosophy, Computing and Information Science.
New books in Pickering Studies in Philosophy of Religion
contain works on Hegel, Cambridge Platonism and Natural
Theology. The frst title, Ineffability and Religious Experience,
has received excellent reviews. In addition I would also
encourage you to look at International Perspectives on
Science, Culture and Society and to fnd out about the latest
work on the moral philosophy of Mary Wollstonecraft in The
Enlightenment World series.
Considering the breadth of new work included in these pages,
I trust there will be something of interest to you. I welcome
new proposals for monographs and essay collections on any
topic in Philosophy, so do get in touch to discuss your research
and project ideas.

The Mysterious Science of the
Sea, 17751943
Natascha Adamowsky
The depths of the oceans are the
last example of terra incognita on
earth. Adamowsky argues that post-
Enlightenment discourse on the
sea was still subject to mystery and
wonder, and not wholly rationalized
by science. She portrays the sea as a
theatre of mystery, accessible only
with considerable technological effort.
It is this unknowable quality which
locates the sea at the intersection
between science and our imagination.

Spaceship Earth in the
Environmental Age,
Sabine Hhler
Spaceship Earth was a key metaphor
in the late twentieth-century debate
over the worlds resources and the
future of humankind. This idea of
the earth as a vessel in space came
of age in an era shaped by space
travel and the Cold War. Hhlers
study innovatively brings together
technology, science and ecology
to explore the way this latter-day
ark was invoked by politicians,
environmentalists, cultural historians,
writers of science fction and many
others across three decades.

Modern society cannot function
without experts and yet we
increasingly question the authority
of those who advise us. This study
explores our reliance on experts within
a historical context and across a wide
range of felds, including agriculture,
engineering, health sciences and
labour management. Contributors
argue that experts were highly
aware of their audiences and used
performance to gain both scientifc
and popular support.

Over the last four decades computers
and the internet have become an
intrinsic part of all our lives, but
this speed of development has left
related philosophical enquiry behind.
Featuring the work of computer
scientists and philosophers, these
essays provide an overview of an
exciting new area of philosophy that
is still taking shape. Topics covered
include the ontology of computing,
knowledge representation and
artifcial intelligence.

Experiments in Practice
Astrid Schwarz
Traditionally experimentation has
been understood as an activity
performed within the laboratory,
but in the twenty-frst century this
view is being challenged. Schwarz
uses ecological and environmental
case studies to show how scientifc
experiments can transcend the
laboratory. She explores the historical
development of the concept of
experimentation and argues that it is
time for us to rethink the traditional
Baconian view. The study offers
insights into the epistemological,
metaphysical and ethical implications
of extending the concept of the
experiment, as well as its effect on
the relationship between science and

Error and Uncertainty in
Scientifc Practice
Editors: Marcel Boumans,
Giora Hon and Arthur C Petersen
Assessment of error and uncertainty
is a vital component of both natural
and social science. Empirical research
involves dealing with all kinds of
errors and uncertainties, yet there
is signifcant variance in how such
results are dealt with. Contributors
to this volume present case studies
of research practices across a wide
spectrum of scientifc felds, including
experimental physics, econometrics,
environmental science, climate
science, engineering, measurement
science and statistics. They compare
methodologies and present the
ingredients needed for an overarching
framework applicable to all.

Eighteenth-Century Dissent
and Cambridge Platonism
Louise Hickman
Hickman traces the infuence that
seventeenth-century Cambridge
Platonists had on eighteenth-century
radicalism. She shows how Platonist
ideas passed from lesser known
nonconformists through to more
infuential fgures such as Mary
Wollstonecraft. This new perspective
on the development of natural
theology not only challenges the
accepted view of the Enlightenment as
a period of rationalization, liberalism
and increasing secularization, but also
has important implications for current
debates in the philosophy of religion.

Hegel, Love and Forgiveness:
Positive Recognition in German Idealism
Liz Disley
Disley offers a new interpretation
of Hegelian recognition a central
tenet of German Idealism focusing
on positive ethical behaviours, such
as love and forgiveness. Building on
the work of Simone de Beauvoir and
Jean-Paul Sartre, Disley reassesses
Hegels work on the subject/object
dialectic and the previously neglected
theological dimensions of his work.
Her new interpretation offers
an innovative reading of Hegels
stance on the relationship between
intersubjectivity, forgiveness and
repentance in his social theory.

Natural Theology in the
Scientifc Revolution:
Gods Scientists
Katherine Calloway
In the seventeenth century new
scientifc discoveries called into
question established Christian
theology. In the past it has been
claimed that contemporary thinkers
contributed to this confict model by
using the discoveries of the natural
world to prove the existence of God.
Calloway challenges this generalized
view through close examination of fve
key texts from the period.

Ineffability and Religious
Guy Bennett-Hunter
Ineffability that which cannot be
explained in words lies at the heart
of the Christian mystical tradition. It
has also been part of every discussion
of religious experience since the
early twentieth century. Despite this
centrality, ineffability is a concept
that has largely been ignored by
philosophers of religion. This is the
frst book to engage with the concept
of ineffability within contemporary
philosophy of religion and provides
a starting point for further scholarly
remarkable in the width and sympathy
of his approach to the highly various
thinkers whom he invokes to
illuminate it. Mary Midgley

Knowing Nature in Early
Modern Europe
Editor: David Beck
Today we are used to clear divisions
between science and the arts. But
early modern thinkers had no such
distinctions, with knowledge being a
truly interdisciplinary pursuit. Each
chapter of this collection presents a
case study from a different area of
knowledge, including the acceptance of
the Gregorian calendar, Shakespeares
use of science and magic in The
Tempest, and the use of scripture to
refute Descartes claims in A Discourse
on Method (1637). The book comes
out of an ongoing project, Scientiae,
examining the nexus of Renaissance
Europe and the history and philosophy
of science.

This series embraces new research
that engages with historically and

and which goes beyond the confnes
of mainstream analytical philosophy
of religion. Books acknowledge
the roles of situation and context,
emphasizing the importance
of understanding the historical
backdrop to issues and debates.
The Biological Foundations
of Action
Derek M Jones
Jones presents an innovative study
into the role of action as distinct
from mere movement in the natural
world. Primitive (non-intentional)
action in humans is discussed as a
form of agency common to many
organisms an area of overlap
neglected in recent scholarship. This
intersectional approach makes an
important contribution to current
philosophical debate on the nature and
origins of agency.

concepts of kinds and the contents
of the world. This edited collection
examines kinds from a new focal
point, that of the empirical activities
and categorizations used by scientists
to defne them. An esteemed group

Romantic Biology, 18901945
Maurizio Esposito
Organismal biology stemmed not
from the work of Darwin and his
circle, but was inspired by Romantic
natural philosophers, embryologists,
anatomists and physiologists. Esposito
presents a historiography of organicist
and holistic thought through an
examination of the work of leading
biologists from Britain (Haldane,
Thompson, Russell and Woodger)
and America (Ritter, Child, Lillie and
Just). He shows how this work relates
to earlier Romantic thought and sets it
within the wider context of the history
and philosophy of the life sciences.

Latin America plays an increasingly
important role in the development
of modern Christianity yet it has
been underrepresented in current
scholarship on religion and science.
In this frst book on the subject,
contributors explore the different
ways that religion and science relate
to each other. It will appeal to those
researching theology, divinity,
philosophy, history of science and

Intentionality and Myths of
the Given: Between Pragmatism and
Carl B Sachs
Intentionality is one of the central
problems of modern philosophy.
How can a thought, action or belief
be about something? Sachs draws on
the work of Wilfrid Sellars, C I Lewis
and Maurice Merleau-Ponty to build
a new theory of intentionality that
solves many of the problems faced
by traditional conceptions. In doing
so, he sheds new light on Sellars
infuential arguments concerning the
Myth of the Given and shows how
we can build a productive discourse

Richard Rorty, Liberalism
and Cosmopolitanism
David E McClean
Richard Rorty was one of the
most controversial and infuential
philosophers of the late twentieth
century. Known primarily for his
attacks on truth and the idea that
knowledge is a mirror of nature, his
contribution as a humanist and a great
moralist has been overlooked by recent
scholarship. McClean re-evaluates
Rortys work in the light of his liberal
cosmopolitan outlook, showing how it
can be applied to a range of social and
political issues, including international
terrorism, religious fundamentalism,
neo-liberalism, sexual politics and
business culture.

The work of Michel Foucault has been

geography and politics. This collection
of essays is the frst to focus on what
Foucault termed heterotopias, spaces
that exhibit multiple layers of meaning
and reveal tensions within society.
Contributors explore the concept of
heterotopia by examining a range of
contested spaces, including foating
asylums, hospitals, nomadic camps,
wind farms and national borders.

Wall Street, Reforming the
An Ethical Perspective
David E McClean
The scandals of recent years have led
to a variety of reforms to fnancial
institutions. But without an industry-
wide commitment to something other
than pure proft, calls for a greater
emphasis on ethics will be largely
ignored. McClean argues that a
collective move towards stewardship is
necessary to restore ethical behaviour
and public confdence. Drawing on
practical examples and offering new
policy recommendations, this unique
philosophical study paints a picture of
what a truly ethical trading culture of
the future might look like.

Why Race and Gender Still
Matter: An Intersectional Approach
Editors: Namita Goswami, Maeve
M ODonovan and Lisa Yount
Intersectionality, the attempt to
bring theories on race, gender,
disability and sexuality together,
has existed for decades as a
theoretical framework. Despite this
it remains almost entirely absent
from contemporary philosophical
thinking. The essays in this volume
explore how intersectionality can be
applied to modern philosophy, as
well as looking at other disciplines
political science, education, law,
art and history where work on
philosophical intersectionalism is
already developing.

Halldenius explores Wollstonecrafts

feminist republican. Wollstonecrafts
works of fction and non-fction are
analysed and the use of her own
experience of a lack of freedom
(the lot of an eighteenth-century
woman) is examined as a valid line
of philosophical enquiry and not as
others have viewed them as a form

Free Will and the Human
Sciences in Britain, 18701910
Roger Smith
Smith takes an in-depth look at the
problem of free will through the prism
of different disciplines. Physiology,
psychology, philosophy, evolutionary
theory, ethics, history and sociology all
played a part in the debates that took
place. His subtly nuanced navigation
through these arguments has much
to contribute to our understanding of
Victorian and Edwardian science and
culture, as well as having relevance to
current debates on the role of genes in
determining behaviour.

Utilitarianism and the Art
School in Nineteenth-Century
Malcolm Quinn
Quinn explores the ways in which
members of parliament applied
Benthams utilitarian philosophy to
questions of public taste. The study
offers a new reading of utilitarianism
and assesses the extent to which it
presented a viable solution to issues of
cultural policy in nineteenth-century
This is a fascinating, original study. It
penetrates to the radically democratic
core of Benthams aesthetic ideas.

Utilitarian Biopolitics: Bentham,
Foucault and Modern Power
Anne Brunon-Ernst
The works of Foucault and Bentham
have been regularly examined
in isolation and in reference to
Panopticon; or The Inspection House
(1791), yet rarely has the relationship
between the two philosophers been
explored further. This study traces the
full breadth of that relationship within
the felds of sexuality, criminology,
ethics, economics and governance.

Hobbes, the Scriblerians and
the History of Philosophy
Conal Condren
Condren uses Hobbes as an example
to demonstrate that an examination of
the persona is needed to understand a
writers philosophy. He demonstrates
that satire and philosophy were closely
linked, offering a new perspective on
the nature of philosophy during this
Mr Condrens study will interest
philosophers, historians and literary
scholars with its impressive sweep,
detail and theoretical sophistication.

Hume and the Enlightenment
Editors: Craig Taylor and
Stephen Buckle
There are many books on Humes
philosophy, but few that deal with
his infuence on Enlightenment
thinking and ideas more generally.
The infuences of Humes empiricism
stretch from encouraging the
exploration of sentiment in literature
to being a forerunner to the new
discipline of cognitive science. This
volume of ten original essays aims
to re-examine and clarify Humes
infuence on the thought and values of
the Enlightenment.

The Enlightenment in
America, 17201825
Editor: Jose R Torre
Given the signifcance the new world
held in the minds of Enlightenment
thinkers, it is remarkable that scholars
have not more fully documented the
Enlightenment in America. So far,
the body of work on the American
Enlightenment has focused almost
exclusively on two areas politics
and religion. In contrast, scholars
have paid little attention to the
polyglot efforts of American doctors,
scientists, engineers, botanists, poets
and other Enlightenment actors. The
Enlightenment in America flls this
signifcant gap in the discourse.

The Reception of Lockes
Politics: From the 1690s to the 1830s
Editor: Mark Goldie
In these volumes can be traced the
manner in which Locke became both
the idol of the Whig Settlement of
1689 and the key to unravel that
settlement in the name of radical
populism: a Locke made safe for Whig
gentlemen, as well as a Locke who, in
Mary Astells words of 1706, prompted
the question, If all men are born free,
how is that all women are born slaves?
Locke is debated across a gamut of
genres: in formal treatises, polemical
pamphlets, newspaper essays, political
sermons, and cheap tracts aimed at
politicizing the masses.
