    The Great Conversation: A Historical Introduction to Philosophy.Norman Melchert - 2014 - Oxford University Press USA.
    Tracing the exchange of ideas between history's key philosophers, The Great Conversation: A Historical Introduction to Philosophy, Seventh Edition, demonstrates that while constructing an argument or making a claim, one philosopher almost always has others in mind. It addresses the fundamental questions of human life: Who are we? What can we know? How should we live? and What sort of reality do we inhabit? Author Norman Melchert provides a generous selection of excerpts from major philosophical works and makes them more (...)

    Metaphysical Realism and History.Norman Melchert - 1986 - Analysis 46 (1):36 - 38.
    Could an "ideal theory" be false? metaphysical realism requires an affirmative answer. The question has usually been discussed in terms of physical theory. I argue that if we shift ground to historical narrative, We can be virtually certain that some "ideal stories" not only "can" be false, But "will" be false. If this argument is correct, Metaphysical realism is almost certainly true.

    Hume's Appendix on Personal Identity.Norman Melchert - 1975 - Philosophy Research Archives 1:323-335.
    The reasons why Hume expressed dissatisfaction concerning his own account of personal identity in the Treatise are unclear. Hume himself states them obscurely, and commentators have disagreed about what exactly it was that puzzled him. I offer reasons for thinking the sources of Hume’s retraction have not yet been understood, and propose a reading of the text of the Appendix which explains why he was dissatisfied.The key to the proper understanding of this text lies in two insufficiently appreciated facts: that, (...)

  24. Who's to Say?: A Dialogue on Relativism.Norman Melchert - 1994 - Hackett Publishing Company.
    Arguments are examined, reexamined, challenged, and honed in this lively dialogue on relativism and objectivity. Topics considered include whether truth and goodness are matters determined by individual opinion; whether they are defined by cultures; whether a non-dogmatic form of relativism is viable; whether the objectivity of science escapes relativism; and pragmatism as an alternative to relativism. Designed to present beginning students with an introduction to the main arguments concerning relativism, this provocative dialogue also serves as a model for thinking clearly (...)

    Responsibility.Norman Melchert - 1995 - Review of Metaphysics 48 (4):910-911.
    The key to understanding the concept is that whenever it applies to me, I can be asked the question, "Why did you do it?" and be obliged to give an answer. This gives a clue as to why certain responses count as excuses: I did not do it; I did not do it; I did not do it. And it brings reason-giving to the fore.
