New book announcement

Estimado/a Visitante,

Marcos Silva, a member of ALFAn, has asked us to announce the following publication:

Dear colleagues,

the recently edited volume "How Colours Matter to Philosophy" might be of interested to some of you. Each chapter provides an insightful analysis of one or more cases in which colours raise philosophical problems in different areas and periods of philosophy. The book is divided into three parts, namely: i) History of Philosophy; ii) Philosophy of Mind and Phenomenology; and iii) Philosophy of Language and Philosophy of Logic.
