Possible worlds / Rod Girle.-- Chesham: Acumen, 2003.
viii, 216p. , 24cm.
ISBN : 9781902683690.
160 GIR 146703
This book examines the ways in which possible worlds have
been used as a framework for considering problems in
logic and argument analysis. The book begins with a non-
technical introduction to the basic ideas of modal logic
in terms of Kripke-s possible worlds and then moves on to
a discussion of -possible for- and -possible that-. The
central chapters examine questions of meaning, epistemic
possibility, temporal logic, metaphysics, and
impossibility. Girle also investigates how the idea of a
possible world can be put to use in different areas of
philosophy, the problems it may raise, and the benefits
that can be gained.

(Routledge innovations in political theory , 59).
ISBN : 9781138782723.

In recent years, there has been an increased attention to
temporality in political theory, and such attention is
sorely needed. For too long political theory, with the
exception of occasional phenomenological forays, has
remained grounded in a particular experience of time as
linear and sequential. This book aims to unsettle the
dominant framework by putting time itself, and the
experience of time in everyday life, at the center of its
critical analysis. Smita Rahman focuses on the experience
of time as one where past, present, and future
intermingle with each other and refuse.

viii, 184p. , 24cm.
ISBN : 9781784710019.
332 SVE 146700
This book employs the social studies of finance approach,
which aims to enhance the dialogue between finance and
sociology by addressing the blind spots of economic and
financial theories. In so doing, it challenges the
accusations made towards financial models in the
aftermath of the last economic crisis and argues that
they cannot be condemned indiscriminately. The author
analyses the various patterns of the application of
models in asset management, risk management and financial
engineering to demonstrate that their power is far more
fragile than widespread criticism would indicate.

Climate Leviathan provides a radical way of thinking
about the intensifying challenges to the global order.
Drawing on a wide range of political thought, the authors
argue that rapid climate change will transform the
world-s political economy and the fundamental political
arrangements most people take for granted. The result
will be a capitalist planetary sovereignty, a terrifying
eventuality that makes the construction of viable,
radical alternatives truly imperative.

This book describes a maximally simple market risk model
that is still practical and main risk measures like the
value-at-risk and the expected shortfall. It outlines the
model-s (i) underlying math, (ii) daily operation, and

overhead to keep the concepts accessible. The author

requirements. The book targets not only practitioners new
to the field but also experienced market risk operators
by suggesting useful data analysis procedures and
implementation details. It furthermore addresses market
risk consumers such as managers, traders, and compliance
officers by making the model behavior intuitively
