This book presents twenty essays by Nicholas Rescher, representing more than a decade of his work. The first part of the collection offers thoughts on the history of philosophy from the Presocratics to the twentieth century; the second part features essays on epistemology, the philosophy of science, metaphysics, the theory of historiography, and the logic of temporal concepts. Despite the range of topics, all essays are closely integrated at the methodological level.Our examples have been misleading in this regard because all of them still involve some type of full control over some result ... it has only a remote connection with the standard usage of one persona#39;s having influence with (over, upon) another.
