Boek cover Ideas in Context van Ian Hacking (Paperback)
Series Number 17: The Taming of Chance
In this important study Ian Hacking continues the enquiry into the origins and development of certain characteristic modes of contemporary thought undertaken in such previous works as the best-selling The Emergence of Probability. Professor Hacking shows how by the late-nineteenth century it became possible to think of statistical patterns as explanatory in themselves, and to regard the world as not necessarily deterministic in character. In the same period the idea of human nature was displaced by a model of normal people with laws of dispersion. These two parallel transformations fed into...

Boek cover The Empire of Chance van Gerd Gigerenzer (Paperback)
How Probability Changed Science and Everyday Life
The Empire of Chance tells how quantitative ideas of chance transformed the natural and social sciences, as well as daily life over the last three centuries. A continuous narrative connects the earliest application of probability and statistics in gambling and insurance to the most recent forays into law, medicine, polling and baseball. Separate chapters explore the theoretical and methodological impact in biology, physics and psychology. Themes recur - determinism, inference, causality, free will, evidence, the shifting meaning of probability - but in dramatically different disciplinary and...

Boek cover Ideas in Context van Daniel Pick (Paperback)
Series Number 15: Faces of Degeneration: A European Disorder, c.1848-1918
This book investigates the specific conception and descent of a language of 'degeneration' from 1848-1918, with particular reference to France, Italy and England. Daniel Pick shows how in the refraction and wake of evolution and naturalism, new images and theories of atavism, 'degenerescence' and socio-biological decline emerged in European culture and politics. He indicates the wide cultural and political importance of the idea of degeneration, whilst showing that the notion could mean different things at different times in different places.

Boek cover Ideas in Context van Peter Stacey (Paperback)
Series Number 79: Roman Monarchy and the Renaissance Prince
Beginning with a sustained analysis of Seneca's theory of monarchy in the treatise De clementia, in this text Peter Stacey traces the formative impact of ancient Roman political philosophy upon medieval and Renaissance thinking about princely government on the Italian peninsula from the time of Frederick II to the early modern period. Roman Monarchy and the Renaissance Prince offers a systematic reconstruction of the pre-humanist and humanist history of the genre of political reflection known as the mirror-for-princes tradition - a tradition which, as Stacey shows, is indebted to Seneca's...

Boek cover Kantelingen 2 -   Tegen de natuur in van Lorraine Daston (Paperback)
Waarom beschouwen mensen in uiteenlopende culturen en tijdperken de natuur als bron van normen voor menselijk gedrag? Filosofen en wetenschappers hebben eeuwenlang beweerd dat de natuur geen waarden kent. Toch probeert de mens keer op keer het ‘zijn’ van de natuur te veranderen in een ‘zou moeten zijn’. Wetenschapsfilosofe Lorraine Daston laat zien dat de poging om de natuurlijke orde te gebruiken als bron van de morele orde even problematisch als onvermijdelijk is.
