Almost no systematic theorizing is generality-free. Scientists test general hypotheses; set theorists prove theorems about every set; metaphysicians espouse theses about all things regardless of their kind. But how general can we be and do we ever succeed in theorizing about absolutely everything? Not according to generality relativism. In its most promising form, this kind of relativism maintains that what 'everything' and other quantifiers encompass is always open to expansion: no matter how broadly we may generalize, a more inclusive 'everything' is always available. The importance of the issue comes out, in part, in relation to the foundations of mathematics. Generality relativism opens the way to avoid Russell's paradox without imposing ad hoc limitations on which pluralities of items may be encoded as a set. On the other hand, generality relativism faces numerous challenges: What are we to make of seemingly absolutely general theories? What prevents our achieving absolute generality simply by using 'everything' unrestrictedly? How are we to characterize relativism without making use of exactly the kind of generality this view foreswears? This book offers a sustained defence of generality relativism that seeks to answer these challenges. Along the way, the contemporary absolute generality debate is traced through diverse issues in metaphysics, logic, and the philosophy of language; some of the key works that lie behind the debate are reassessed; an accessible introduction is given to the relevant mathematics; and a relativist-friendly motivation for Zermelo-Fraenkel set theory is developed.

How to Count Animals more or less

Most people agree that animals count morally, but how exactly should we take animals into account? A prominent stance in contemporary ethical discussions is that animals have the same moral status that people do, and so in moral deliberation the similar interests of animals and people should be given the very same consideration. In How to Count Animals, more or less, Shelly Kagan sets out and defends a hierarchical approach in which people count more than animals do and some animals count more than others. For the most part, moral theories have not been developed in such a way as to take account of differences in status. By arguing for a hierarchical account of morality - and exploring what status sensitive principles might look like - Kagan reveals just how much work needs to be done to arrive at an adequate view of our duties toward animals, and of morality more generally.

In More or Less, Jeff Shinabarger calls readers to create their own social experiments to answer the question, “What is enough?” It all started with one idea: What would happen if we created a culture in which we gave away whatever was more than enough for us? How would our habits change if we shed the excess of money, clutter, and food in our lives? In More or Less, readers will learn how to draw a line of “enough” in their consumer choices, how to see generosity as a chance to experience freedom in a greedy world, and how to make small changes now that will help others forever. As Shinabarger reminds them, defining “enough” is more than a responsibility—it is an opportunity to give hope. With a foreword by Bob Goff.

In More or Less, Stephen Redding shares his unique vision of life in its totality and how our participation in it colors the pathway for ourselves, the world, and the universe. Mr. Redding draws on a myriad of amazing life experiences to illustrate his global view, and he offers his readers hope for radiant and fulfilling tomorrows by offering solutions for stagnancy and positive suggestions for enhancing personal growth.

"Migration, borders, cybersecurity, natural disasters, and terrorism: Homeland security is constantly in the news. Despite ongoing attention, the problems seem to be getting bigger and the political discussion is misleading and overheated. Ben Rohrbaugh, a former border security director at the White House's National Security Council, cuts through the noise with an accessible and novel framework for understanding homeland security and the best ways to keep civilians safe. The U.S. government is only beginning to address national security domestically instead of internationally, and the establishment of the Department of Homeland Security is merely the first step in a strategic realignment that will be long, difficult, and riddled with missteps. More or Less Afraid of Nearly Everything is an accessible and engaging guide to homeland security, particularly issues surrounding migration and border security, making innovative arguments about safety at home in the twenty-first century and providing practical solutions to real-world problems"--
