Disparities

Alienation and Freedom

Slavoj Žižek, University of Ljubljana, Slovenia

Frantz Fanon

The concept of disparity has long been a topic of obsession and argument for philosophers but Slavoj Žižek would argue that what disparity and negativity could, might, and should mean for us has never been more hotly debated.

Translated by Steven Corcoran

Disparities explores contemporary 'negative' philosophies from Catherine Malabou's plasticity, Julia Kristeva's abjection and Robert Pippin's self-consciousness to the God of negative theology, new realisms and post-humanism and draws a radical line under them. Instead of establishing a dialogue with these other ideas of disparity, Slavoj Žižek wants to establish a definite departure based on an imaginative dialectical materialism.

Frantz Fanon is regarded as a foundational thinker of Postcolonial Studies, bringing together the analysis of colonialism from an objective, historical perspective and an interrogation of its subjective effects on colonizer and colonized alike. This book furthers his powerful intervention into how we think about identity, race and activism and provides a unique insight into Fanon's literary, psychiatric and journalistic theories. Never before published in English, Alienation and Freedom represents a rare opportunity to read the last writings of a major 20th-century philosopher who's disruptive and moving work continue to shape how we look at the world.

The Lost Thread

Philosophical Chemistry

The Democracy of Modern Fiction

Genealogy of a Scientific Field

Jacques Rancière, University of Paris VIII, France

Manuel DeLanda, University of Pennsylvania, USA

In The Lost Thread, Rancière foregrounds the egalitarian and democratic impulses of modernist literature. Contrary to the canonical interpretation of the relation between modernism and capitalism via the commodification of everyday life, Rancière proposes a radical rethinking of our received ideas regarding the politics of aesthetics in the modern era. In this work, Rancière continues his project of outlining an egalitarian "distribution of the sensible" as the compelling linkage between politics and aesthetics in the modern age.

"[DeLanda] presents a problem-focused intellectual history of chemistry [...] with extraordinary conceptual clarity." - International Journal for Philosophy of Chemistry Philosophical Chemistry furthers DeLanda’s revolutionary intervention in the philosophy of science. Against a monadic and totalizing understanding of science, DeLanda’s historicizing investigation traces the centrality of divergence, specialization, and hybridization throughout the discipline of chemistry. Delanda creates a model of a scientific field capable of accommodating the variation and differentiation evident in the history of scientific practice, made of three components: a domain of phenomena, a community of practitioners, and a set of techniques connecting the community to the domain.

Dying for Ideas

Living Currency

The Dangerous Lives of the Philosophers

Pierre Klossowski

Costica Bradatan, Texas Tech University, USA

Edited by Daniel W. Smith, Nicolae Morar & Vernon W. Cisney

What do Socrates, Hypatia, Giordano Bruno, Thomas More, and Jan Patocka have in common? First, they were all faced one day with the most difficult of choices: stay faithful to your ideas and die or renounce them and stay alive. Second, they all chose to die. Their spectacular deaths have become not only an integral part of their biographies, but are also inseparable from their work. A "death for ideas" is a piece of philosophical work in its own right; Socrates may have never written a line, but his death is one of the greatest philosophical best-sellers of all time.

"I should have written you after my first reading of The Living Currency; it was already breath-taking and I should have responded. After reading it a few more times, I know it is the best book of our times." Letter to Pierre Klossowski from Michel Foucault, winter 1970. Living Currency is the first English translation of Klossowski's La monnaie vivante. It offers an analysis of economic production as a mechanism of psychic production of desires and is a key work from this often overlooked but wonderfully creative French thinker.

Bringing together books and thinkers that have opened up startling new ways of looking at the modern world, this series celebrates with new editions of the most original and influential works of Bloomsbury’s non-fiction publishing.

Philosophy

Film Fables

Principles and Problems

Jacques Rancière, University of Paris VIII, France

Roger Scruton In Philosophy: Principles and Problems Roger Scruton shares the ideas and arguments which initially attracted him to the subject and those which have engaged his attention throughout his career. Through discussions of major philosophers, Kant and Wittgenstein in particular, he attempts to show how philosophy is relevant to life in the modern world. The topics he discusses range from the nature of truth, to Music, History, sex, morality and God. Read this book, therefore, to share a profound philosopher's thoughts about some of the major problems of our time. The Bloomsbury Revelations edition includes a new preface from the author.

In Film Fables Jacques Ranciere turns his critical eye to the history of modern cinema. Combining an extraordinary breadth and analysis with an attentiveness to detail and obvious love of cinema, Ranciere gives us new ways of looking at and interpreting film. Film Fables is essential reading for anyone wanting to gain a better understanding of the power and complexity of the cinematic form and it’s rich history.

The Beginning of Knowledge

The Beginning of Philosophy

Hans-Georg Gadamer, author of Truth and Method

Hans-Georg Gadamer, author of Truth and Method

The Beginning of Knowledge brings together almost all of Gadamer’s essays on the Presocratics. In each of the essays Gadamer discusses the origins of knowledge in the western philosophical tradition. Beginning with a hermeneutical and philological investigation of the Heraclitus fragments he moves on to a discussion of the Greek Atomists and the Presocratic cosmologists. In the final two essays he elaborates on the profound debt that modern science owes to the Greeks. The philosophers discussed include Plato, Aristotle, Socrates, Anaximander, Heraclitus and Parmenides. This is a major work from one of the 20th century’s greatest thinkers.

In The Beginning of Philosophy Gadamer explores the layers of interpretation and misinterpretation that have built up over 2500 years of Presocratic scholarship. Using Plato and Aristotle as his starting point his analysis moves effortlessly from Simplicius and Diogenes Laertius to the 19th-century German historicists right through to Hegel, Nietzsche and Heidegger. Gadamer shows us how some of the earliest philosophical concepts such as truth, equality, nature, spirit and being came to be and how our understanding of them today is deeply indebted to Presocratic thinkers. This is a major philosophical-historical work from one of the 20th century’s greatest thinkers.

Everyday Life in the Modern World Henri Lefebvre Henri Lefebvre was one of the most significant and influential social theorists of the twentieth century. His impressive body of work crosses multiple disciplines including sociology, philosophy, economics, politics and cultural studies. In Everyday Life in the Modern World Lefebvre reveals the decisions and events which, day to day, we know very little about and do not actively participate in and yet have a profound effect on our lives. The book is a manifesto for a social movement that is as relevant today as it ever was.

Martin Heidegger, (1889-1976) is regarded as one of the twentieth century's most important philosophers Translated by Parvis Emad & Thomas Kalary Written in 1938/9, Mindfulness (translated from the German Besinnung) is Martin Heidegger's second major being-historical treatise. Here, Heidegger develops some of his key concepts and themes including truth, nothingness, enownment, art and Be-ing and discusses the Greeks, Nietzsche and Hegel at length. In addition to the main text, the text also includes two further important essays, ‘A Retrospective Look at the Pathway’ (1937/8) and 'The Wish and the Will (On Preserving What is Attempted)' (1937/8), in which Heidegger surveys his unpublished works and discusses his relationship to Catholic and Protestant Christianity and reflects on his life's path.

The Five Senses

Philosophy of Modern Music

A Philosophy of Mingled Bodies

Theodor W. Adorno

Michel Serres, Stanford University, USA With The Five Senses Serres traces a topology of human perception, writing against the Cartesian tradition and in praise of empiricism, he demonstrates repeatedly, and lyrically, the sterility of systems of knowledge divorced from bodily experience. What are we, and what do we really know, when we have forgotten that our senses can describe a taste more accurately than language ever could? The book won the inaugural Prix Médicis Essai in 1985. The Revelations edition includes an introduction by Steven Connor.

In this classic work of music theory Adorno critiques two major composers, Arnold Schoenberg and Igor Stravinsky, who he presents as dialectically opposed to one another in terms of their musical styles, techniques and directions. Adorno’s readings, especially of Schoenberg, continue to cause controversy and disagreement among musicians, music lovers and philosophers today. The book also covers other renowned composers including Wagner, Bach and Mozart. This is landmark work of philosophy that has shaped the way we think about music today.

Philosophy for Non-Philosophers

Filmmaker and Philosopher

Louis Althusser, 16 October 1918 – 22 October 1990, was a French Marxist philosopher.

Vittorio Hösle, University of Notre Dame, USA Eric Rohmer is one of the most popular French directors of the second half of the 20th century, one of the members of the famous Nouvelle Vague that reconstituted French cinema based on the theoretical principles articulated in the Cahiers du Cinéma. Hösle’s book puts Rohmer in the context of a long French tradition of reflected eroticism, with Marivaux, Musset, Stendhal, and Jean Renoir as crucial figures, and shows how Rohmer both recognizes the inner logic of eroticism and subjects it to moral demands that he inherits from his Catholic background.

Translated by G. M. Goshgarian In 1980, at the end of the most intensely political period of his work and life, Louis Althusser penned Philosophy for Non-Philosophers. Available English for the first time, it constitutes a rigorous and engaged attempt to address a wide reading public unfamiliar with Althusser’s project. As such, the work is a concentration of the most fundamental theses of Althusser’s own ideas, and presents a synthesis of his sprawling and disparate philosophical and political writings. Philosophy for Non-Philosophers is a continuation and conglomeration of Althusser’s thought, that provides a vivid encapsulation of Althusser’s seminal influence on the leading thinkers of today.

Antigone

Spinoza

Slavoj Žižek, University of Ljubljana, Slovenia

The Ethics of an Outlaw

Philosophers have long been preoccupied with Antigone, but never before has a philosopher had the audacity to throw fidelity to the wind and rewrite one of the most classic plays in the history of theatre. This lack of fidelity is, of course, precisely the point: not only is this a fascinating new play in its own right, it is a political work calling into question our ideas of reverence to the canon, fidelity to the text and the meaning of 'faithfulness'. A brilliantly funny, moving and political play for those who are interested in reading and watching Antigone anew.

Eric Rohmer

Ivan Segré, philosopher and Talmudic scholar Translated by David Broder, London School of Economics, UK Spinoza is among the most controversial and asymmetrical thinkers in the tradition and history of modern European philosophy. Since the 17th century, his work has aroused some of the fiercest and most intense polemics. From his expulsion from the synagogue onwards, Spinoza has embodied the secular, heretical and self-loathing Jew. Ivan Segré, a philosopher and celebrated scholar of the Talmud, discloses the conservative underpinnings that have animated Spinoza’s numerable critics and antagonists. Through a close reading of Leo Strauss and several contemporary Jewish thinkers, Segré reclaims Spinoza as a faithful interpreter of the revolutionary potential contained within the Old Testament.

Alain Badiou, École Normale Supérieure, France Translated by A. J. Bartlett & Justin Clemens In this major intervention into contemporary philosophy, Alain Badiou rehabilitates the notion of 'being happy', reclaiming it from the blandness of the self-help industry, consumerist trends and the polluted rhetoric politicians. He suggests happiness has been reduced to satisfaction, and satisfaction for Badiou isn't enough; risk, adventure, peril, feeling and experiencing things that go beyond feeling at peace, deliberating disturbing our equilibrium and asking questions of ourselves is where true happiness lies. Badiou is also asking a serious political question in his interrogation of happiness: what does it mean, socially and politically, to simply accept one's place in the world?

Reparative Aesthetics

Counter-Memorial Aesthetics

Witnessing in Contemporary Art Photography

Refugee Histories and the Politics of Contemporary Art

Susan Best, Queensland College of Art, Griffith University, Australia

Veronica Tello

"This book begins with an extraordinary hypothesis: that art can function to mark, to remember and to heal social personal and collective shame. Rather than personal or historical expression, art can act as a form of reparative memory of what cannot be otherwise adequately represented. Reparative Aesthetics develops a new account of what photographic art by women artists from the global south is able to accomplish through the acknowledgement and exposure of shame. Beautifully and hauntingly written, this book reminds us that art expresses what cannot be said."

"Veronica Tello’s book constitutes a substantive and original contribution to knowledge within the field of contemporary art history." Terry Smith, University of Pittsburgh, USA This is the first book to address one of the most significant social phenomena of our era, the movement of refugees across oceans and seas—from Libya to Lampedusa, and Indonesia to Christmas Island— and its indelible impacts on contemporary art practice. It argues that the reverberations of this global phenomena and its associated media imagery have engendered a new way of thinking in art.

Concepts such as Assemblage theory, image machines, refrain, and especially the production of desire that runs through the entire book are beautifully explained and put to use […] Drawing on schizoanalysis, the book ends on an affirmative note as to what one should do given the challenges we all face in a media saturated environment."

Adventures with the Theory of the Baroque and French Philosophy Nadir Lahiji, University of Canberra, Australia Analysing the reception of contemporary French philosophy in architecture, Nadir Lahiji discusses the problematic nature of importing philosophical categories into architecture. Focusing on the notion of the Baroque in Deleuze and Lacan’s investigations of the concept, Lahiji challenges the contemporary dominance of the Baroque as a phenomenon related to postmodernism, establishing it as a name for the paradoxical unity of ‘kitsch’ and ‘high’ art. This original critique explains why the category of the Baroque, if it is still useful in architecture criticism, must be tied to the notion of Post-Rationalism.

"Counter-Memorial Aesthetics is accomplished, moving, fluent and challenging." Eric Rosenberg, Tufts University, USA

Darell Wayne Fields, University of California, Berkeley, USA Based on analysis of historical, philosophical, and semiotic texts, Architecture in Black presents a systematic examination of the theoretical relationship between architecture and blackness. Now updated, this original study draws on a wider range of case studies, highlighting the racial techniques that can legitimize modern historicity, philosophy and architectural theory. Combining an historical survey of racial discourse with new readings resulting from advanced semiotic techniques doubling as spatial arrangements, Architecture in Black is an important contribution to studies of the racial in Western thought and its impact on architecture, space and time.

The Philosophy of Perception Phenomenology and Image Theory Lambert Wiesing, Jena University, Germany Lambert Wiesing challenges current theories of perception. Instead of attempting to understand how a subject perceives the world, Wiesing starts by taking perception to be real, asking what this reality means for a subject. In his original approach, the question of how human perception is possible is displaced by questions about what perception obliges us to be and do. He argues that perception requires us to be embodied, to be visible, and to continually participate in the public and physical world we perceive, charting a new path in contemporary perception theory.

History and Perspectives of Formal Aesthetics Lambert Wiesing, Jena University, Germany Translated by Nancy Ann Roth, University of Falmouth, UK Now available in English for the first time, Lambert Wiesing explores the development of an influential aesthetic tradition through the work of six figures: Robert Zimmermann (1824-1898); Alois Riegl (1858-1905); Heinrich Wölfflin (1864-1945), Konrad Fiedler (1841-1895), Maurice Merleau-Ponty (1908-1961) and Charles William Morris (1901-1979). Analysing their contribution to the progress of formal aesthetics, from its origins in Germany in the 1880s to semiotic interpretations in America a century later, Wiesing introduces the rise of modern image theory and provides a valuable account of our engagement with pictures in the 21st century.

The Feminist Uncanny in Theory and Art Practice Alexandra M. Kokoli, Middlesex University, UK Through discussions of the influence of theories and practices on contemporary art, Alexandra Kokoli proposes a new concept, the feminist uncanny, exploring it as one of the most enduring legacies of the Women's Liberation Movement. Introducing the multiple definitions of the uncanny, Kokoli provides an accessible literature review of key texts by Lacan and Royle, alongside feminist critiques by Cixous and Kofman. Together with new readings of prominent works, and engagement with less-well researched projects, she examines the links between the feminine and the uncanny, first signposted by Freud, and reflects on how feminist theory and practice exploited such links.

Aesthetics, Arts, and Politics in a Global World

Beauty and the End of Art

Daniel Herwitz, University of Michigan, USA

Sonia Sedivy, University of Toronto Scarborough, Canada

Focusing on art and music in diverse parts of the world, Daniel Herwitz explores a world that has largely shifted from the earlier days of nationalism, decolonization and cultural exclusion, to one of global markets and networks. Using examples from India and Mexico to South Africa, Australia and China, Herwitz argues that the cultural politics and art being produced in these places are now post-postcolonial. His original and engaging exploration of contemporary art captures the ways in which art has given way to a new form of production, altering everything from the vision to the terms of circulation.

Wittgenstein, Plurality and Perception

Sonia Sedivy shows how a resurgence of interest in beauty and a sense of ending in Western art are challenging us to rethink art, beauty and their relationship. Arguing that Wittgenstein’s later work and contemporary theory of perception offer just what we need for a unified approach to art and beauty, Sedivy provides new answers to these new challenges. Examining contemporary debates about art, aesthetics and perception, she weaves together insights from Kant, Gadamer and Danto, Nehamas, Scarry and Hickey to reveal how they make good sense if we bring contemporary theory of perception and Wittgensteinian realism into the conversation.

The Aesthetics and Ethics of Copying

Traversals of Affect

Edited by Darren Hudson Hick & Reinold Schmücker, Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität, Germany

Edited by Julie Gaillard, Emory University, USA, Claire Nouvet, Emory University, USA & Mark Stoholski, Emory University, USA

With advances in technology making the copying of artworks and other artefacts exponentially easier, questions of copying no longer focus on the problems of forgery: they now expand into aesthetic and ethical legal concerns. This volume addresses the changes and provides the first philosophical foundation for an aesthetics and ethics of copying. Scholars from philosophy of art, philosophy of technology, philosophy of law, ethics, legal theory, media studies, art history, literary theory, and sociology discuss the role that copying plays in human culture, confronting the question of how—and why—copying fits into our broader system of values.

Gandhi and Philosophy On Theological Anti-Politics Shaj Mohan, University of Delhi, India & Divya Dwivedi, Indian Institute of Technology, India The first in-depth philosophical study of Gandhi. Placing his ideas within a unique system of their own, it examines the modern political and scientific elements in Gandhi’s thought and discusses his impact on 20th-century philosophy.

Using Kant to explain the interconnectedness of Gandhi’s ideas, the authors discuss his thought in respect to both Western and Indian philosophical traditions. This unifying approach enables the authors to compare Gandhian concepts with those of the European tradition, such as truth, metaphysics and value.

Robots, Zombies and Us

Intellectual Humility

Understanding Consciousness

An Introduction to the Philosophy and Science

Robert Kirk, Nottingham University, UK Using questions about robots and zombies, Robert Kirk introduces the main problems of consciousness and argues for a new approach to solving them. Alongside explanations of behaviourism, Turing’s test of intelligence and Searle’s famous Chinese Room argument, Kirk discusses Cartesian dualism, and objections to it before tackling what’s wrong with the zombie idea. After raising these central problems of consciousness and revealing why zombies are impossible, Kirk sketches out and defends the core principles of functionalism: an approach according to which consciousness is a matter of the performance of functions.

A System of Nihilism, Consciousness and Reality

Wilfrid Sellars, Idealism, and Realism

James Tartaglia, Keele University, UK

Understanding Psychological Nominalism

"A superb and original work. Tartaglia addresses head-on the question of the meaning of life — which he calls ‘the keystone of philosophy’ — and gives an uncompromising nihilist answer to it. But rather than turning to gloom and despair, he shows how nihilism is, in a certain sense, neither good nor bad; and that it can be used to address some central traditional questions of philosophy: about consciousness, time and universals. Elegantly written and very readable, this is a unique work of philosophy that deserves a wide readership."

Wittgenstein on Internal and External Relations Tracing all the Connections Jakub Mácha, Masaryk University, Czech Republic Approaching Wittgenstein’s writings from a new perspective, Jakub Mácha focuses on how Wittgenstein distinguishes between relations that are grounded in the nature of their related terms, internal, and those which belong to them accidentally, external. Mácha summarizes the philosophical background against which the distinction emerged and distils definitions of the notions of internal and external relations, revealing the difference between relations to be one of the most fundamental distinctions that Wittgenstein drew in his writings. This is a valuable contribution to Wittgenstein scholarship, showing how internal and external relations inform his entire philosophical approach.

Maine de Biran Translated by Darian Meacham, University of the West of England, Bristol, UK & Joseph Spadola Frequently referred to as the ‘French Kant’, Maine de Biran was dubbed the greatest French metaphysician since Descartes by Henri Bergson. His philosophical vocabulary and key concepts still play an undeniably central role in contemporary continental philosophy. This volume situates Biran within the development of modern French, German and British philosophy and illustrates the deep influence he had on major figures such as Maurice Merleau-Ponty, Michel Henry, and Paul Ricoeur. Appearing in translation for the first time, this key work and accompanying essays makes the mature thought of this vastly important philosopher available to English speaking audiences.

Anti-Badiou The Introduction of Maoism into Philosophy Francois Laruelle, Université de Paris X, Nanterre, France In a new paperback edition, this compelling and highly original book represents a confrontation between two of the most radical thinkers at work today: Alain Badiou and the author, François Laruelle. Anti-Badiou relates the parallel stories of Badiou's Maoist 'ontology of the void' and Laruelle's own performative practice of 'non-philosophy' and explains why the two are in fact radically different. Badiou's entire project aims to re-educate philosophy through one science: mathematics. Laruelle carefully examines Badiou's Being and Event and shows how Badiou has created a new aristocracy that crowns his own philosophy as the master of an entire theoretical universe.

Feminist Theory After Deleuze Hannah Stark, University of Tasmania, Australia Feminist Theory After Deleuze addresses the encounter between one of the 20th century's most important philosophers, Gilles Deleuze, and one of its most significant political and intellectual movements, feminism. This book introduces the key movements within feminist theory, engaging with both Anglo-American and French feminism, as well as important strains of feminist thought from across the globe.

Michelle Boulous Walker, University of Queensland, Australia In an age of internet scrolling and skimming, Boulous Walker argues that philosophy involves the patient work of thought, which invites and implores us to take our time to engage with the world. At its best, philosophy teaches us to read slowly; in fact, philosophy is the art of reading slowly – and this inevitably clashes with many of our current institutional practices and demands. With the help of writers as diverse as Nietzsche, Wittgenstein, Woolf, Adorno, Levinas, Critchley, Beauvoir, Le Dœuff, Irigaray, Cixous, Weil, and others, Boulous Walker offers a foundational text in the emerging field of slow philosophy.

Biopolitics and the Philosophy of Death Paolo Palladino, Lancaster University, UK While the governance of human, embodied existence is organized ever-increasingly around life, the challenge is to construct an alternative understanding that is equal to the centering of contemporary existence around life itself; a critical reflection about its negation, death.

This book brings Deleuze into dialogue with significant thinkers such as Simone de Beauvoir, Luce Irigaray, Judith Butler, and Elizabeth Grosz, taking key terms such as, 'difference', 'gender', 'bodies', 'desire' and 'politics' and approaching them from a Deleuzian perspective.

Palladino responds to this challenge by drawing upon philosophical, historical and sociological modes of inquiry to examine key developments in the history of biomedical understanding of ageing and death. He combines this genealogy with close reflection upon its implications for a critical and effective reading of Foucault’s and Deleuze’s foundational work on the relationship between life, death and embodied existence.

Figural Philology

Jesús Adrián Escudero, Universidad Autónoma de Barcelona, Spain

Adi Efal, University of Cologne, Germany

This book conveys Heidegger's thought in a well-organized, impartial manner, without deviating too far from Heideggerian vocabulary. It will be invaluable for upper level undergraduates and graduate students of philosophy,particularly phenomenology, continental and German philosophy.

Panofsky and the Science of Things Though inspired by a Panofskyan legacy, this book diverges at certain points from his declared objectives, and calls attention to aspects that have been less accentuated in his intellectual reception. Insisting on the importance of iconology as a method for art history and the humanities, it shows how examining this promotes a cooperation between the history of art and the history of philosophy. It discusses whether Panofsky’s method could be of use for general questions in the epistemology of the historical sciences that examine human works. Distilling Panofsky's writings, Efal selects the elements that could be useful for philosophy.

Mortal Thought

Early Phenomenology

Hölderlin and Philosophy

Metaphysics, Ethics, and the Philosophy of Religion

James Luchte, Shanghai University of Finance and Economics, School of the Humanities, China Mortal Thought seeks to illustrate the philosophical contexts for Hölderlin’s poetic thought and to trace his profound impact upon subsequent philosophy. Beginning with the point of departure of Hölderlin in Kant and Fichte, this book outlines the novel philosophical innovations of Hölderlin from the 19th century to the present day. Mortal Thought lays out a concise, comprehensive account of the emergence of Hölderlin as philosopher and poet, of his influence upon the four dominant strands of Continental philosophy – Nietzsche, Heidegger, Critical Theory and Post-structuralism – and of his continuing relevance to philosophical research today.

Bloomsbury Studies in Continental Philosophy

Edited by Brian Harding & Michael R. Kelly Taking the term "phenomenologist" broadly, Early Phenomenology focuses on those early exponents of the intellectual discipline, such as Buber, Ortega and Scheler, rather than those thinkers that would later eclipse them. Indeed the volume precisely means to problematize the phenomenologist category, which becomes increasingly more fluid the more we distance ourselves from the gravitational pull of philosophical giants Husserl and Heidegger. In focusing on early phenomenology this volume seeks to examine the movement before orthodoxies solidified. Beyond merely reviving names it takes these figures seriously as phenomenologists, radically reordering our understanding of the lineage of this major philosophical movement.

Althusser's Lesson Jacques Rancière, University of Paris VIII, France "Rancière tells a compelling story about the political effects both deliberate and unintentional of the relationship between academic Marxist discourse, institutional left politics, and the iconic mass rebellion of nine million workers [...] Rancière's reflections open the space for a critical and politically sensitive dialogue over the political space [of] the university." Marx and Philosophy Review of Books Jacques Rancière's first major work, Althusser's Lesson appeared in 1974, just as the energies of May ‘68 were waning. It raises the question that has guided Rancière's thought ever since: how do theories of subversion become the rationale for order?

Posthumanism: A Guide for the Perplexed Peter Mahon, The University of British Columbia, Canada

How might we reinvent the humanities? This is the question at the heart of this provocative volume. There is no better cast to confront and problematise this question than the contributors to Conflicting Humanities. They are world-renowned thinkers who can tackle the problem as researchers and teachers but also as prominent public intellectuals.

Peter Mahon provides an overview of posthumanism, examining the intoxicating—and often troubling— entanglements of humans, animals and technology in science, society and culture. Mahon explores how key scientific advances in information technology and genetics have made us and society posthuman, and how certain strands in art and philosophy continue to shape how we understand these advances.

Edward Said's definition of the core task of the Humanities as the pursuit of democratic criticism remains more urgent than ever, though it needs to be supplemented by gender, environmental, and antiracist perspectives as well as by detailed analysis of the necropolitical governmentality of our time.

Central to analysis of posthumanism is an understanding of technology as a pharmakon: a substance that is both a poison and a cure. In the light of this analysis, Mahon offering a concise and accessible introduction posthumanism, and considers our posthuman future.

Civic Aesthetics

The Invention of Selfishness

Militarism, Israeli Art and Visual Culture

David Ashford, City University London, UK

Noa Roei, University of Amsterdam, the Netherlands

Ayn Rand’s philosophy shaped the contemporary neo-liberal consensus; but is her gospel of selfishness really just a reiteration of a quintessentially American "rugged individualism"? This book argues that Rand’s philosophy can be traced back to Max Stirner’s philosophical egoism, whose influence upon the phase of intense creative innovation we now call Modernism was seminal. The implications for our understanding of Modernism and late capitalism are profound. Presenting a fresh perspective on the Modernist classics, as well as introducing less familiar art and writing from the period, Ashford arrives at a fresh and compelling reevaluation of Modernism, revealing its selfish streak.

Exploring the politics of the image in visual culture, Civic Aesthetics examines both the omnipresence of militarism in Israeli culture and society, and the way it is articulated, enhanced, and contested within local contemporary visual art. Looking at contemporary art through the lens of "civilian militarism", Roei demonstrates that art is a valuable partner in the making of critical discourse. Analyzing a range of contemporary artworks with the help of cutting-edge theory, it touches on various fields, including memory studies, gender studies, landscape theory, and aesthetics, to discover the potential of visual art to translate military excessiveness to its viewers.

Continental Philosophy and the Palestinian Question

Spinoza’s Authority Volume I

Beyond the Jew and the Greek

Edited by A. Kiarina Kordela, Macalester College, USA & Dimitris Vardoulakis, University of Western Sydney, Australia

Zahi Zalloua, Whitman College, USA Continental philosophers have long looked to the example of the Jew as the paradigmatic object of and model for ethical inquiry. But how does such an ethics of the other-as-Jew translate into real, everyday life? Within this paradigm, what then becomes of the Arab or Muslim?

Democracy and Its Others Jeffrey H. Epstein, Cal State University, USA Today's unprecedented levels of human migration presents challenges to conceptualizations of national identity and democratic citizenship. This book traces analysis the conceptual development of the relationship between sovereignty and foreignness from Plato’s Athens through today in order to show that foreignness is a structural feature of sovereignty that cannot be purged or assimilated, but can also allow for new forms of democratic political unity to be imagined. This cosmopolitan model for citizenship provides a novel conceptual framework that simultaneously upholds the legal importance of democratic citizenship for political justice while ceaselessly contesting the exclusionary logic of the nation-state.

Resistance and Power in Ethics

Spinoza’s political thought has been subject to a significant revival of interest in recent years, helping scholars reinterpret and rethink the political present. Spinoza’s Authority makes a significant contribution to this ongoing reception and utilization of Spinoza’s political thought, and takes the 1670 text, Theologico-Political Treatise, as a primary focal point. Featuring internationally established theorists of Spinoza’s work and taking the concept of authority as an original framework, this books asks: How is authority related to ethics, and what are the social, historical and representational processes that produce authority and resistance?

Public Reason and Political Community Andrew Lister, Queen's University, Canada At the heart of the principle of public justification is an idealized unanimity requirement, which can be framed in at least two different ways. Do our reasons for political decisions have to be unanimously acceptable to be qualified points of view, or is it coercive state action that must be unanimously acceptable? Andrew Lister explores the ‘anti-perfectionist dilemma’ that results from this ambiguity. He defends the reasons model on grounds of the value of political community, and applies it to recent debates about marriage abortion and redistribution of wealth.

Red Kant: Aesthetics, Marxism and the Third Critique

Theorizing Contemporary Anarchism

Michael Wayne, Brunel University, UK

Solidarity, Mimesis and Radical Social Change

Is Kant really the ‘bourgeois’ philosopher that his advocates and opponents take him to be? In this bold and original re-thinking of Kant, Michael Wayne argues that with his aesthetic turn in the Third Critique, Kant broke significantly from the problematic philosophical structure of the Critique of Pure Reason. Here is an unfamiliar Kant: his concepts of beauty and the sublime are reinterpreted as attempts to socialise the aesthetic while Wayne reconstructs the usually hidden genealogy between Kant and important concepts in Marxist philosophy.

Global Ethics and Global Common Goods Patrick Riordan, Heythrop College, University of London, UK Riordan takes a different approach to the questions of global ethics by following the direction of questioning initially pioneered by Aristotle; for him the most basic question of ethics is ‘what is the good life’? In the context of contemporary global ethics the Aristotelian questioner wonders about the good life on a global scale. For experienced students of political philosophy and international relations this is a crucial text exploring the possibilities for politics on a world stage, while the perspective of the common good adds a distinctive new dimension to debates on global security and the challenges of managing conflict.

Iwona Janicka, Research Institute for Philosophy Hanover, Germany Providing a set of conceptual tools offering a theoretical model of ‘slow’ social transformation, this book helps us understand the nature and modes of operation of 21st century leftwing movements and how they differ from the irruptive model of a revolution. Instead it proposes the two concepts of mimetic contagion and solidarity with singularity, which allow us to understand what is currently happening in the activist milieu. Bringing together some of today’s most important thinkers, including Butler, Girard, Badiou, and Sloterdijk this book suggests a philosophical lens to look at the alternative living projects that contemporary left-wing activists undertake in practice.

Nietzsche’s Engagements with Kant and the Kantian Legacy Edited by Marco Brusotti, Technische Universität Berlin, Germany, Herman Siemens, Leiden University, Netherlands, João Constâncio, New University of Lisbon, Portugal & Tom Bailey In this three volume set, Nietzsche’s explicit and implicit treatments of Kant, Kantians, and Kantian concepts are examined in detail. Each volume deals with a specific area of Kant’s philosophy: metaphysics, ethics and aesthetics and anthropology. Working from the basis that Nietzsche is better understood as thinking ‘with and against’ Kant and the Kantian legacy, these volumes present the first systematic study of the pairing of two major European thinkers from the modern period.

Ethics Within Engineering

The Ethics of Theory

An Introduction

Philosophy, History, Literature

Wade L. Robison, Rochester Institute of Technology, USA

Robert Doran, University of Rochester, USA

Built around a number of engaging case studies, Wade Robison presents real examples of engineering problems that everyone, engineer or not, will recognize, ranging from such simple artifacts as toasters and the layout of burners and knobs on a stove top to the software responsible for the Columbia airliner crash. The most dramatic examples center on error-provocative designs: designs that provoke mistakes for even the most intelligent, well-informed, and highly motivated. These examples all raise ethical issues and provide an ideal entry point for anyone looking to better understand professional ethical obligations within engineering.

In The Ethics of Theory, Robert Doran offers the first assessment of the ethical challenges of critical theory across the humanities and social sciences, calling into question the sharp dichotomy typically drawn between the theoretical and the ethical, the analytical and the prescriptive. Chapters include the debate between Sartre and Lévi-Strauss over the ethics of history; the "ethical turns" of Foucault and Derrida; the ethical ideal of Rorty’s "literary culture"; Hayden White’s ethical historiography; the ethics of "conversion" in existentialism and René Girard’s theory of mimetic desire; the ethical humanism of Auerbach’s philology and Edward Said’s postcolonial theory.

Citizen Killings

Motivational Ethics

Liberalism, State Policy and Moral Risk

Mathew Coakley, Warwick University, UK

Deane-Peter Baker, University of New South Wales, Australia

Motivational Ethics explores a particular moral theory and why we should accept it, and about different structures of moral theory.

Citizen Killings offers a ground-breaking systematic approach to formulating ethical public policy on all forms of 'citizen killings’. Deane-Peter Baker argues that life-or-death policy decisions should be driven by a recognition of the key limitations that a commitment to political liberalism places on the state. Where these principles come into tension Baker shows that they can be defused through a reasonableness test, or addressed through the application of the ‘risk of harm principle’. The book also explores what measures citizens and other nations might legitimately take in response to states that fail to implement morally appropriate policies regarding citizen killings.

Pacifism

The Ethics of Time

A Philosophy of Nonviolence

A Phenomenology and Hermeneutics of Change

Robert L. Holmes, University of Rochester, USA This book proposes a philosophical defense of pacifism, arguing that there is a moral presumption against war and unless that presumption is defeated, war is unjustified. Leading philosopher of non-violence Robert Holmes contends that neither just war theory nor the rationales for recent wars (Vietnam, the Gulf War, Iraq and Afghanistan) defeat that presumption, hence that war in the modern world is morally unjustified. A detailed, systematic and elegantly argued text, Pacifism guides both students and scholars through the main debates clearly, but without oversimplifying historical examples or reducing the complexities of the issues.

In principle we might morally evaluate a range of objects: what people do – is some action right, wrong, permitted, forbidden? Or we might evaluate agents: what is it to be morally depraved, or highly moral? And, we could evaluate institutions: which ones are just, or legitimate? Most theories focus on one of these and offer arguments against rivals. Instead, this book asks: of the theories that evaluate one object, are they compatible with the evaluation of the others?

John Panteleimon Manoussakis, College of the Holy Cross, USA The Ethics of Time explores a relatively uncharted field in philosophy: the ethical implications of time, utilizing the resources of phenomenology and hermeneutics. Its rigorous analyses of such phenomena as waiting, memory, and the body are carried out phenomenologically, while it engages in a hermeneutical reading of such classical texts as, Augustine’s Confessions and Sophocles’s Oedipus Rex, among others. This book takes seriously phenomenology’s claim of a consciousness both constituting time and being constituted by time. This has important implications the ways in which such a self informed by time, might understand anew the problems of imperfection and ethical goodness.

A Multicultural Reader

The Third Book of Foundations

Edited by Bruce Foltz, Eckerd College, USA

Michel Serres, Stanford University, USA

Medieval Philosophy: A Multicultural Reader comprises a comparative, multicultural reading of the four main traditions of the medieval period including sections on Jewish, Islamic, Latin and Greco-Roman traditions. It presents excerpts from thinkers such as Plato, Aristotle, Plotinus and Proclus from whom all four traditions have drawn. Readings are presented chronologically in four different tracks, along with engaging and accessible introductions to: - the traditions themselves - the periods within each tradition - individual thinkers This book also includes an appendix providing readings under several problem headings, to assist those who prefer to read and teach medieval philosophy topically rather than chronologically.

Translated by Randolph Burks In this third instalment of his classic 'Foundations' trilogy, Michel Serres takes on the history of mathematics. Serres rejects a traditional history of mathematics which unfolds in a linear manner, and argues need to delve into the past of maths and identify a series of ruptures which can help shed light on how this discipline has developed and how, in turn, the way we think has been shaped and formed. This meticulous and lyrical translation marks the first ever English translation of this key text in the history of ideas.

Bloomsbury Studies in Ancient Philosophy An important and simulating resource, this series focusses on the history of ancient philosophy.

Plotinus the Platonist A Comparative Account of Plato and Plotinus' Metaphysics David J. Yount, Messa Community College, USA David Yount argues that there are no essential differences between the metaphysics of Plato and Plotinus. Yount covers the core principles of Plotinian thought: The One or Good, Intellect, and All-Soul (the Three Hypostases), Beauty, God(s), Forms, Emanation, Matter, and Evil. After addressing the interpretive issues that surround the authenticity of Plato’s works, Plotinus the Platonist deftly argues against the commonly held view that Plotinus is best interpreted as a Neo-Platonist, but rather as a Platonist proper. This is an ideal text for Plato and Plotinus scholars and academics, and excellent supplementary reading for upper-level students of ancient philosophy.

Plato and Plotinus on Mysticism, Epistemology, and Ethics

A ncient / M edieval and R enaissance P hilosophy

Medieval Philosophy

David J. Yount, Messa Community College, USA Beginning by examining the ways in which Plato and Plotinus claim that it is possible to have an ultimate experience that answers the most significant philosophical questions, David J. Yount provides an extended analysis of why we should interpret both philosophers as mystics. The book then moves on to demonstrate that both philosophers share a belief in non-discursive knowledge and the methods to attain it, including dialectic and recollection, and shows that they do not essentially differ on any significant views on ethics.

Aristotelian Moral and Political Thought in the Renaissance

Mark Anderson, Belmont University, USA Nietzsche saw Plato as his chief philosophical rival, but the relationship between their thought proved to be far more complicated than one of simple opposition. This is the first book devoted to this complex relationship. With scholarly rigor, lively writing, and equal appreciation of each philosopher, Anderson cuts a new path for those interested in either.

Giovanni Pontano (1429-1503) was a key figure of the Italian Renaissance. Taking inspiration from Aristotle, Pontano wrote on topics such as prudence, fortune, magnificence, and the art of pleasant conversation. This book shows how Pontano’s rewriting of Aristotelian ethics affected not only his philosophical views, but also his political life and his place in the humanist movement. Drawing on Pontano’s treatises, dialogues, letters, poems and political writings, this book presents the first comprehensive study of Pontano’s moral and political thought.

This book also provides an account of history that is itself both historical and rooted in attempts to narrate and explain history from its inception in antiquity; seeking to establish features or constituents of history that might be found in any historical account and might themselves be considered historical invariants in history.

The Idea of Photography

When was photography invented? In 1826 with the first permanent photograph? If we depart from the technologically oriented accounts and consider photography as a philosophical discourse an alternative history appears, one which examines the human impulse to reconstruct the photogogic or "the evoking of light". The significance of the photagogic throughout the history of ideas is explored via the Platonic Dialogues, Iamblichus’ theurgic writings, Marsilio Ficino’s texts and the works of Renaissance magus John Dee. This alternative history is not a replacement of other narratives of photographic history but rather offers a way of rethinking photography’s ontological instability.

The Iconic Imagination

A Philosophical Study of Reincarnation, Karma and Ethics

Douglas Hedley, University of Cambridge, UK

Mikel Burley, University of Leeds, UK Rebirth and the Stream of Life explores the diversity as well as the ethical and religious significance of rebirth beliefs, focusing especially on Hindu and Buddhist traditions but also discussing indigenous religions and ancient Greek thought. Utilizing resources from religious studies, anthropology and theology, an expanded conception of philosophy of religion is exemplified, which takes seriously lived experience rather than treating religious beliefs in isolation from their place in believers’ lives. Drawing upon his expertise in interdisciplinary working and Wittgenstein-influenced approaches, Mikel Burley examines several interrelated phenomena, including purported past-life memories, the relationship between metaphysics and ethics, efforts to ‘demythologize’ rebirth, and moral critiques of the doctrine of karma.

"A wonderfully rich and varied array of literary and philosophical sources, ancient and modern. Hedley’s highly erudite study provides fertile materials for grasping the metaphysical significance of the image as the bearer of transcendence." John Cottingham, University of Reading, UK The theistic religions assume a link between beauty, goodness and truth, all of which are viewed as divine attributes. The Iconic Imagination is both a reflection on the redemptive potential of art, and an investigation of the traditions of occidental Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism and Islam in their confrontations with the particular power of art to represent the transcendent.

Fischer, University of California, Riverside, USA Over the past decade, there has been a growing interest among analytic philosophers in the topic of life’s meaning, nearly all of it by naturalists theorizing from anti-theistic starting points and premises. This book answers the need for a theistic philosophical perspective on the meaning of life. God and Meaning touches on important issues in metaphysics, epistemology, ethics, philosophy of religion, and biblical theology that intersect with life’s meaning.

Rebirth and the Stream of Life

God and the Meanings of Life is interested in answering the question of what God could and couldn’t do to make life meaningful (as well as what he would and wouldn’t do). T. J. Mawson espouses a version of the ‘amalgam’ or ‘pluralism’ thesis about the issue of life’s meaning – in essence, that there are a number of different legitimate meanings of ‘meaning’ (and indeed ‘life’) in the question proposed. Lastly he explores the possibility that whilst there could be meaning in a Godless universe, there could be other sorts of meaning in a Godly one?

Lonergan, Meaning and Method Philosophical Essays

Rethinking Order After the Laws of Nature Edited by Nancy Cartwright, University of Durham, UK & Keith Ward, Heythrop College, UK This book presents a new picture of natural order. The Newtonian picture of a cosmos ruled by universal and exceptionless laws has been superseded; we need to rethink the classical idea of the ‘laws of nature’ in a more dynamic and creatively diverse way. In each chapter expert authors expound the historical context of the idea of laws of nature, and explore the diverse sorts of order presupposed by work in the sciences. They consider how human freedom might be understood, and explore how Newton’s idea of a ‘universal designer’ might be revised, in this new context.

Andrew Beards, School of the Annunciation, UK "Andrew Beards is one of the most insightful and lucid students of Lonergan alive today. This book builds on previous exercises in proposing a critical realist 'third way' that can breach the 'Berlin wall' between continental philosophy and analytic philosophy. It deserves to be widely read and deeply considered." Rev. Gerard Whelan SJ, Pontifical Gregorian University, Italy Bernard Lonergan is acknowledged as one of the most significant philosopher-theologians of the twentieth century. Lonergan, Meaning and Method brings Lonergan’s thought into critical dialogue with other contemporary philosophical interlocutors, introducing themes and arguments from the analytic and continental traditions.

Between Death and Resurrection

JK Huysmans and the Immemorial Origin of Metaphysics

A Critical Response to Recent Catholic Debate Concerning the Intermediate State

Caitlin Smith Gilson, University of Holy Cross, USA "Insightful reflections on origin, time, and narrative, as well as deep engagement with both the classical and modern philosophical traditions." Cyril O’Regan, University of Notre Dame, USA Immediacy and Meaning seeks to approach the odd uneasiness at root in all metaphysical meaning; that the human knower attempts to mediate what cannot be mediated; that there is a pre-cognitive immemorial immediacy to Being that renders its participants irreducible, incommunicable and personal. It is an attempt to pause, but without retreat, to be a spectator within the game, to gain access into this immediate Presence, for a moment only perhaps, before the signatory failure into metaphysical language returns us to the mediated.

Stephen Yates, Maryvale Institute, UK "An admirably fair, thorough, and comprehensive account of its crucial if unfashionable subjectmatter, and a vindication of the role of a lucid rationality in the service of orthodoxy." Aidan Nichols O.P., Blackfriars, Cambridge, UK The question of death and resurrection has traditionally been answered in terms of the disembodied souls of human beings awaiting bodily resurrection. Since the 1960s, Catholic theologians have proposed two alternatives: resurrection at death into the Last Day, or resurrection in death into an interim state in which the embodied dead await, with us, the final consummation of all things. Between Death and Resurrection examines the philosophical and theological reasons for these alternatives.

Conversations with Roger Scruton Mark Dooley & Roger Scruton This book reveals what life was like for Roger Scruton growing up in High Wycombe, how he survived Cambridge and how he came to hold his conservative outlook. It tells of Scruton’s rise to prominence while writing for The Times and sheds light on his campaign on behalf of underground dissidents in Eastern Europe. Ranging across topics as diverse as the current state of British philosophy, music, religion, and illuminating what lay behind Scruton’s abandonment of academia for his new life on a Wiltshire farm, Conversations with Roger Scruton is an intimate portrait of a writer who has felt philosophy as a vocation and whose defence of unfashionable causes has brought him a wide readership in Britain and around the world.

The Seventeenth Century and the Birth of the Modern Mind

Key Questions

A. C. Grayling

This engaging textbook gives an overview of the main issues, ideas and literature in the field, offering a wide-ranging exploration of key concepts, topics and questions.

In the seventeenth century science moved from the alchemy and astrology of John Dee to the painstaking observation and astronomy of Galileo, from the classicism of Aristotle, still favoured by the Church, to the evidence-based, collegiate investigation of Francis Bacon. And if the old ways still lingered and affected the new mind set – Descartes’ dualism, an attempt to square the new philosophy with religious belief; Newton, the man who understood gravity and the laws of motion, still fascinated to the end of his life by alchemy – by the end of that tumultuous century ‘the greatest ever change in the mental outlook of humanity’ had irrevocably taken place.

Marion and Theology

Hannah Arendt and Theology

Christina M. Gschwandtner, Fordham University, USA

John Kiess, Loyola University Maryland, USA

Jean-Luc Marion’s early work on Descartes and his more recent writings in phenomenology have not only elicited huge interest in France and the US, but also created huge potential in the field of theology. This book is organised around central questions about the divine raised by Marion’s work: how to speak of God, how to approach God, how to experience God, how to receive God, how to believe in God, how to worship God. This volume offers an introduction to the work of one of the most important living French philosophers and brings a unique theological perspective to his philosophy.

The Twentieth Century Sojourn of Samuel Stefan Osusky

Edited by Anna Abram, Michael Kirwan & Peter Gallagher, all of Heythrop College, University of London, UK. What does it mean to do theology and philosophy in our contemporary academia? What is the notion of good life in the 21st century university? One distinctive tradition of philosophical and theological investigation has been working since early modernity to offer answers to these questions, the Society of Jesus, founded in 1540 by Ignatius of Loyola. The engaging and original contributions in this volume examine topics such as faith, science and reason, secularism, naturalism, humanism and Ignatian spirituality.

Recent years have seen a growing appreciation of Arendt's complex relationship to theological sources, especially Augustine, a thinker with whom she contended throughout her life. John Kiess explores how Arendt’s critical and constructive engagements with theology inform her thought, and the lively debates her work generates in contemporary Christian theology on such topics as evil, tradition, love, political action, and the life of the mind. A unique interdisciplinary investigation bridging Arendt studies, political philosophy, and Christian theology, this book considers how the insights and provocations of this public intellectual can help set a constructive theological agenda for the 21st century.

Paul R. Hinlicky, Roanoke College, USA Samuel Stefan Osusky was a leading intellectual in Slovak Lutheranism and a bishop in his church. In 1937 he delivered a prescient lecture to the assembled clergy, "The Philosophy of Fascism, Bolshevism and Hitlerism", that clearly foretold the dark days ahead. Paul R. Hinlicky traces the intellectual journey with ethical idealism's faith in the progressive theology of history that ended in dismay and disillusionment at the revolutionary pretensions of Marxism-Leninism. Hinlicky shows Osusky's dramatic rediscovery of the apocalyptic "the mother of Christian theology", and his input into the discussion of the dialectic of faith and reason after rationalism and fundamentalism.

The Seductiveness of Virtue Abraham Joshua Heschel and John Paul II on Morality and Personal Fulfillment John J. Fitzgerald, St. John's University, USA John J. Fitzgerald addresses here one of life's enduring questions - how to achieve personal fulfillment and whether we can do so through ethical conduct. He focuses on two significant 20thcentury theologians: Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel and Pope John Paul II, seeing both as fitting dialogue partners - given the former's influence on the Second Vatican Council's deliberations on the Jews, and the latter's ground-breaking overtures to the Jews in the wake of his experiences in Poland before and during World War II. This volume is the first book-length secondary source in the English language to explicitly examine Heschel’s ethical thoughts.

Michael Richard Laffin, Talbot School of Theology, Biola University in La Mirada, CA, USA Demonstrates the promise of Martin Luther’s thought for contemporary political theology by showing how Luther has been over-determined in his shaping of modernity, which frequently deafens us to his unique contribution. In contrast to the dominant narratives of political modernity, Laffin focuses on the political significance of areas in Luther’s corpus often neglected in modern accounts of his political thought, especially his commentaries on scripture and writings on the sacraments.

Edited by Kevin Hargaden, University of Aberdeen, Scotland, UK Brian Brock interviews Hauerwas and discusses a wide variety of topics: the role of autobiography in Christian ethics, the problem of race in the modern academy, Hauerwas' work on disability, his criticism of the discipline of medical ethics, his views on just war and pacifism, gender, etc. Brock has managed to maneuver Hauerwas into positions where he has directly faced tricky questions that he normally does not discuss: the accusation that he is racist, too soft on Yoder, or misogynist.

Divine Freedom and the Doctrine of the Immanent Trinity

Karl Barth-Emil Brunner Correspondence

In Dialogue with Karl Barth and Contemporary Theology

Karl Barth & Emil Brunner

Paul D. Molnar, St. John's University, USA The material in this second edition has been thoroughly updated: it contains a new preface and a new introduction, as well as a revised bibliography. The book includes a brand new chapter titled 'Divine Freedom Revisited' which addresses those questions that have arisen in connection with Molnar's original presentation of the divine freedom. Paul D. Molnar re-visits here his discussion of the Logos Asarkos, the theologies of Karl Rahner and Wolfhart Pannenberg. He sheds new light on Rahner's and Torrance's discussions of the resurrection; and incorporates modern discussions by contemporary theologians to offer new insights into Eberhard Jüngel’s thinking.

Edited by David Andrew Gilland, Leuphana University, Lüneburg, Germany The Barth-Brunner correspondence contains 174 letters, and offers a glimpse into the dynamic interactions of two of the 20th century's greatest theologians. The letters reveal the personalities of both men as they engage in intense and explicit theological discussion, debate, and criticism, and provides a telling account of how Barth and Brunner viewed themselves in relation to Christianity and philosophy. Additional commentaries reveal their thoughts on their teachers, contemporaries, and students, and ultimately offer a unique glimpse into the theology and the history of the Christian church in the 20th century. Accordingly, the letters will clearly challenge some popular conceptions.

Simon Oliver, Durham University, UK Judaism, Christianity and Islam claim that the universe is not a brute fact. It is 'created'. But what do we mean by 'creation'? Do we mean that the universe is 'designed'? Is it the product of an evolutionary process? How are creatures related to God, and does God act within creation? This is an introduction to the Christian theology of creation and its relation to scientific and philosophical approaches to nature. Simon Oliver offers a clear understanding of fundamental theological and philosophical topics and discusses the relationship between theological, philosophical and scientific approaches to nature.

The Vocation of Anglicanism Paul Avis, Anglican Communion Office, London, UK Paul Avis discusses the distinctive character of Anglican theology - especially its ecclesiology - and of the worldwide Anglican Communion of churches. He expounds the historic Anglican tradition as background to current controversies and shows how Anglicanism is called, like all churches, to reflect the nature of the Church that we confess in the creed to be one, holy, catholic and apostolic. This book gives the reader a very clear view of the importance of the Anglican tradition's attempt to hold together aspects of the church that in other traditions are allowed to drift apart.

Eternal God, Eternal Life Theological Investigations into the Concept of Immortality Edited by Philip G. Ziegler, University of Aberdeen, UK How ought Christian faith and theology to understand the concept of human immortality today? And what, if anything, might be distinctively Christian about such a concept? The contributors to this volume explore how our thinking about the prospect of human immortality is decisively determined by what we receive of the limitless life of the triune God of the gospel, and how our understanding of immortality is made concrete by the Christian hope in 'the resurrection of the body and the life everlasting'. This volume discusses the fundamental quest surrounding the question of immortality in Christian faith and doctrine.

The contributors to this volume reflect on new questions in public and political theology, inspired by the theology of Edward Schillebeeckx. They discuss a variety of theological traditions and theories that could offer substantial contributions to current political challenges, and debate whether theology should contribute to the liberation of communities of poor and suffering people. Key questions include: what role does, could or should theology play in current discussions about our political realities? Is there a place for theological worldviews in the public conversation about policy making? Should theology critically unmask the underlying theological and metaphysical sources of contemporary politics?

Christian Wisdom Meets Modernity Edited by Kenneth Oakes, University of Notre Dame, USA The ‘Illuminating Modernity’ series examines the great but lesser known thinkers in the ‘Romantic Thomist’ tradition such as Erich Przywara and Fernand Ulrich and shows how an outstanding 20th century theologians such as Ratzinger and von Balthasar have depended on classical Thomist thought and how they radically reinterpreted this thought. The chapters in this volume are dedicated to encounter between the presuppositions and claims of modern intellectual culture and the Christian confession that the crucified and resurrected Jesus is the power and wisdom of God and is the lord of history and of his church.

Essays on Ecumenical, Postliberal, and Political Themes, with Special Reference to Karl Barth

The Glory of God and the Human Creature in Karl Barth, Hans Urs von Balthasar and Theological Exegesis of Scripture

George Hunsinger, Princeton Theological Seminary, USA The essays in this collection fall into three main sections: ecumenical theology, postliberal theology, and political theology. The first section deals with Torrance and Barth on the sacraments. In the second section Hunsinger discusses the figures of Hans W. Frei, Robert W. Jenson and H.R. Niebuhr in terms of their contribution to postliberal theology. The final section offers a discussion of the political theology, as part of which Hunsinger presents an in-depth analysis regarding the political views of Karl Barth, as well as Barth's understanding of the human rights.

Karl Barth and the Incarnation Christology and the Humility of God Darren O. Sumner, Fuller Seminary Northwest, USA Demonstrates the significance of Barth's Christology by examining it in the context of his orientation toward the classical tradition. To compare this Christology with the doctrine's history, Sumner suggests that the Chalcedonian portrait of the incarnation is conceptually vulnerable at a number of points. By recasting the doctrine in actualist terms - the history of Jesus' lived existence as God's fulfillment of His covenant with creatures, rather than a metaphysical uniting of natures - Barth is able to move beyond problems inherent in the tradition. Barth's great contribution to Christology is in the unapologetic affirmation of 'the humanity of God'.

Dynamics of Difference Christianity and Alterity: A Festschrift for Werner G. Jeanrond Edited by Ulrich Schmiedel, Ludwig-MaximiliansUniversität, Munich, Germany & James Matarazzo, University of Oxford, UK Who is my other? What do I encounter when I encounter my other? And what responses and responsibilities does the encounter with my other evoke? Grappling with questions such as these, the contributions to this compilation analyze alterity in the Bible, philosophy, theology, within interreligious dialogues, and the radical alterity of God. Tying in with Jeanrond’s explorations of the many faces and facets of the other, this work ultimately aims to advocate openness to the other as a necessity for both religion and reflections on religion.

Jason A. Fout, Bexley Hall Seabury Western Theological Federation, USA Jason A. Fout builds a case for seeing divine glory as intrinsically relational, creating a sociality which allows for a human agency transfigured by God’s glory. Moving beyond Barth and von Balthasar, Fout turns to theological exegesis of scripture to construct an alternative account of divine glory, worked out in the act of glorifying: first in God, then in divine glorifying of humans, and in processes of honouring/glorifying among humans. Divine glory is shown to be consistent with a responsive and creative human obedience to God, and shown to constitute human agency which is creaturely and dependent yet not overwhelmed.

What Has Wittenberg to Do with Azusa? Luther's Theology of the Cross and Pentecostal Triumphalism David J. Courey, Calvary Pentecostal Assembly, Canada Global Pentecostalism is a 21st century phenomenon. Yet in North America, where the movement was born, it has stalled. Courey reveals the cause of this plateau in the triumphalism characteristic of both North American Protestantism and Pentecostalism. Through the identification of parallels between Martin Luther and contemporary Pentecostals, Courey detects in Luther's Theology of the Cross a potent remedy for this tension. Utilizing this insight, Courey reflects on other faith traditions, and provides a counterpoint to the triumphalism that inhibits the development of Pentecostalism in North America and around the world.

Isaac Watts Reason, Passion, and the Revival of Religion Graham Beynon, Oak Hill College, UK

Brett Gray, University of Cambridge, UK

Shows how minister Isaac Watts (1674-1748) modified a Puritan stance on reason and passion in the context of the Enlightenment. His views on these matters would come to underlie his practical efforts to revive the church at a time when it faced its strongest ideological challenges. Beynon examines the motivation for Watts’s work in writing hymns, and the way in which he wrote them, and discusses his preaching and prayer. In each of these practical topics Watts’s position is contrasted to earlier branches of Puritanism.

Brett Gray traces the portrayal of Christ that emerges throughout Williams’ diverse writings, including in his engagements with literature and philosophy. What emerges is a vision of Jesus that grows from the roots of the Christian tradition, but is sensitive to modern concerns and fits into a hopeful eschatology. Although attentive to the broad sweep of the Christian tradition, Williams’s christology is also seen in this book to be a particular British artefact, shaped in dialogue with thinkers such as Donald MacKinnon and Gillian Rose.

Reformation Divided

That Was The Church That Was

Catholics, Protestants and the Conversion of England

How the Church of England Lost the English People

Eamon Duffy

Andrew Brown, The Guardian & Linda Woodhead, Lancaster University, UK

Published to mark 500 years since the Reformation in England, Reformation Divided argues that the process was far more complex than previously thought – England did not become Protestant overnight. In fact, the country and church were propelled by the great forces of Reformation and Counter-Reformation as both Catholics and Protestants responded to the seismic changes of the early sixteenth century. A natural companion to his previous books on this period, in this new publication Professor Duffy proves that he is that rare phenomenon – a major Reformation historian who writes exquisitely, commanding the attention of a wide readership.

Jesus in the Theology of Rowan Williams

The Church of England still seemed an essential part of Englishness, and even of the British state, when Mrs Thatcher was elected. More recently, it has lost more than half its members and much of its influence. Yet the English still largely believe in God and most still call themselves Christians. So what went wrong, and how? This book tells the story of the disappearance of the Church of England from the centre of public life. The authors watched this closely, one from the inside and one from the outside. The purpose is to show what happened and explain why.

Politics in Friendship: A Theological Account Guido de Graaff, Southeast Institute for Theological Education, London, UK Explores the political significance of friendship, generally and in the context of church life, emphasizing the role of judgment as a shared political practice. de Graaff frames his explorations around a particular story of friendship: the story of Bishop George Bell and German theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer. Drawing on Arendt and O'Donovan, de Graaff argues that both stories can be read as one of friends assuming the responsibility of political judgment in an emergency situation – their story casts doubts on secular politics as the primary context for interpreting the friends' judgments. A unique contribution to the topic of friendship and politics.

Contemporary Issues and Perspectives

Dialogue, Difference and Catholic Identity

Edited by Alcuin Reid, Monastère Saint-Benoît, Diocese of Fréjus-Toulon, France

Lieven Boeve, Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium

Considering questions of liturgical catechetics, music, preaching, how young people relate to the liturgy and matters of formation and reform, Liturgy in the Twenty-First Century is an essential resource for all clergy and religious laity involved in liturgical ministry and formation. Bringing forth 'new treasures as well as old', its contributors identify and address contemporary challenges and issues facing the task of realising the vision of Cardinal Sarah, Cardinal Ratzinger/Benedict XVI and the Second Vatican Council. Contributors include Raymond Leo Cardinal Burke, Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone, Abbot Philip Anderson, Father Thomas Kocik, Dom Alcuin Reid, and Dr Lauren Pristas.

Examines the place of theology in the university, the church and society and emphasizes that theology certainly belongs to all of these three domains as it belongs to the nature of theology to involve itself in all three spheres, especially at the crossroads where they overlap. With current discussions on theology as reference points, Boeve offers a reflection on Catholic identity today.

Who Do We Think We Are? How Catholic Priests Understand Themselves Today Christopher A. Fallon, Archdiocese of Liverpool, UK This empirical study explores how the sampled priests understand their priesthood. Christopher A.

The Murderous History of Bible Translations

The Bible in Political Debate

Power, Conflict and the Quest for Meaning

Edited by Frances Flannery, James Madison University, USA & Rodney A. Werline, Barton College, USA

Harry Freedman

What Does it Really Say?

Bible translations underlie an astonishing number of violent conflicts that have plagued the world: religious establishments through the ages have railed against them; the Cathar Bible was banned; William Tyndale was forced to flee from England on the back of his Bible translation and so the story continues to the present day.

Politicians and pundits regularly invoke the Bible in support of a number of controversial social and political issues such as civil rights, social policy, scientific research, welfare, and many others. But is the Bible used out of context in these major debates?

In this deeply researched narrative history, Harry Freedman describes the passions and emotions that arise when deeply held religious convictions are threatened or undermined and tells of the struggle for authority and orthodoxy in a world where temporal power was always subjugated to the divine.

Examining the use of the Bible in political debates, these essays uncover the original historical contexts and meanings of commonly cited verses. The contributors take a non-partisan approach to show how the Bible has been distorted to support certain views. At the same time, they show how the Bible can sometimes make for unsettling reading in the modern day.

Lester L. Grabbe, University of Hull, UK

David Firth, St. John's University Nottingham, UK This scholarly study of Samuel continues to wrestle with how we interpret this pivotal text.

Recognizing the importance of questions such as these, David Firth explores fresh ways of reading Samuel as a unified and yet complex text, which displays high levels both of literary artistry and of theological commitment.

As a supplement to the tradition of predominantly linguistic, historical, literary, comparative, socialscientific and related approaches seeking to answer the question, Gericke offers a variety of experimental philosophical perspectives which examine how Elohim could be considered from and within the perspectives of an extremely wide range of philosophers.

Examines law in the Hebrew Bible from the starting point that law and restoration were not always central themes for the Bible but became so in the writing of texts, as the products of selfish desire and the wish to preserve collective identity rather than as altruistic structures based on human flourishing. Cataldo engages with Žižek, Foucault, and Deleuze and their theories of relation and difference in forming his argument.

SOTS at 100: Centennial Essays of the Society for Old Testament Study

The Bible and Art, Perspectives from Oceania

Edited by John Jarick, University of Oxford, UK

Edited by Caroline Blyth, University of Auckland, New Zealand & Nasili Vaka’uta, University of Auckland, New Zealand

This volume presents an important insight into the history of scholarship on the Old Testament over the last 100 years. Presented in collaboration with the Society for Old Testament Study, which celebrates its centenary in 2017, the volume examines the shifting patterns in scholarship on the Old Testament over the last century, from the types of subject studied to the demographic make-up of the scholars working on the Old Testament/Hebrew Bible themselves. The volume has been written by several longstanding members and officers of the society. As such the volume presents a remarkable history of scholarship of Old Testament studies.

War in Chronicles Temple Faithfulness and Israel's Place in the Land Troy D. Cudworth, Independent Scholar Troy Cudworth argues that retribution theology is maintained in the book of Chronicles primarily through the treatment of the themes of war and temple-faithfulness. He identifies a division of Israel's kings into categories: those who uphold and preserve the temple, and those who neglect it. The Chronicler illustrates how, based on their attitude to the temple, kings either prosper in the land through military victory or suffer attack. Across all of these cases, Cudworth shows how temple faithfulness always ultimately guarantees peace and security for Israel.

Reading Ruth in the Restoration Period

Constructions of Space III

A Call for Inclusion

Edited by Jorunn Økland, University of Oslo, Norway, J. Cornelis de Vos, University of Münster, Germany & Karen J. Wenell, University of Birmingham, UK

Edward Allen Jones III, Corban University, USA With an eclectic approach drawing on traditional exegesis, analysis of inner-biblical allusions, comparisons of legal and linguistic data, and modern refugee research, Edward Allen Jones III argues that Ruth is best understood as a call for an inclusive attitude toward any Jew or Gentile who desired to join the Judean community in the early Post-Exilic period. Though certain segments of the Judean community sought to purify their nation by expelling foreign elements in the Restoration period, Yhwh’s loving-kindness in Ruth’s life demonstrates his willingness to use any person to build up his people.

Biblical Spatiality and the Sacred

Heroines, Heroes and Deity

Covenant Continuity and Fidelity

Three Narratives of the Biblical Heroic Tradition

A Study of Inner-Biblical Allusion and Exegesis in Malachi

Dolores G. Kamrada, Pázmány Péter Catholic University, Hungary

Jonathan Gibson, Cambridge Presbyterian Church, UK

This study analyses three narratives concerning the greatest heroic figures of the biblical tradition: Jephthah's daughter, Samson and Saul. Texts about King David are also considered. Kamrada concludes that Jephthah's daughter and Samson represent the pinnacle of female and male heroism respectively, and they achieve super-human status by offering their lives to the deity, thus entering the sphere of holiness. Saul's downfall is shown as exemplary of that of a great hero, and David is shown as an astute hero, who founds a lasting dynasty, thus drawing the heroic era in the Deuteronomistic history to a close.

History, Politics and the Bible from the Iron Age to the Media Age

Gibson investigates how Malachi’s inner-biblical interpretation of earlier source texts in the Hebrew Bible informs and shapes his central theme of covenant. The mention of people, nations and places, Deuteronomic terminology, and rare words and unique word/root combinations exclusive to Malachi and only a few other texts encourages the book to be read in the context of received biblical traditions and texts. Through studying these Gibson reveals how Malachi’s connections to earlier source texts are neither random nor causal; rather, they have been strategically employed to inform and shape his central theme of covenant continuity and fidelity.

First-Degree Incest and the Hebrew Bible Sex in the Family Johanna Stiebert, University of Leeds, UK Discusses all overt and covert first-degree incest relations in the Hebrew Bible. Stiebert navigates not only the incest laws of Leviticus and the narratives of Lot and his daughters and of Amnon and Tamar but also pursues subtler intimations of incest, such as between Adam and his (absent but arguably implied) mother, and Ham and Noah. In pursuing the psycho-social values that may be drawn from the Hebrew Bible regarding first-degree incest, Stiebert thoroughly reviews incest studies from the early 20th century onwards and explains and assesses the contribution of recent approaches from queer and post-feminist perspectives.

Divining the Woman of Endor African Culture, Postcolonial Hermeneutics, and the Politics of Biblical Translation J. Kabamba Kiboko, Independent Scholar An examination of the language of divination in the Hebrew Bible, particularly in 1 Samuel 28:325—the oft-called "Witch of Endor" passage. Using the theories of Mikhail M. Bakhtin Kiboko contends that much of the vocabulary of divination in this passage and beyond has been mistranslated in authorized English and other translations used in Africa and in scholarly writings. Kiboko argues that the woman of Endor is not a witch. The woman of Endor is, rather, a diviner, much like other ancient Near Eastern and modern African diviners. This results in a range of cultural implications which Kiboko explores fully.

'Sit At My Right Hand' The Chronicler's Portrait of the Tribe of Benjamin in the Social Context of Yehud Benjamin D. Giffone, LCC Internation University, Lithuania Benjamin is portrayed in Chronicles differently from how he is portrayed in the Deuteronomic History. In the latter, Benjamin's relation to Judah is shown as varied and complex, incorporating both highs and lows. The Chronicler, by contrast, smooths over these difficulties by emphasizing the historically close relationship between the two tribes. Benjamin D. Giffone sees in this evidence that the JudahBenjamin relationship reflects the socio-political situation of late Persian Yehud, and from this draws conclusions about the purpose and composition of Chronicles.

Byun examines the ancient Greek version of Isaiah, commonly referred to as LXX (Septuagint) Isaiah, and examines a number of possible cases in depth in order to determine the degree to which semantic change within Hebrew, as well as the spread of Aramaic already in the Second Temple period, may have influenced the translator.

A Lexical Semantic Study of the Life Cycle in Biblical Israel Edited by Jurie Le Roux, University of Pretoria, South Africa, Dirk J. Human, University of Pretoria, South Africa & Eckart Otto, University of Munich, Germany In this book the relationship between the Pentateuch and the Prophets is examined. The authors of the Hexateuch emphasized the importance of land as the greatest gift of Yahweh. These post-exilic Hexateuch redactors fought claims from diaspora communities (represented by Nehemiah) who demanded a new distribution of the land, asserting the importance of the Torah. In the long run the editors of the Pentateuch triumphed and the Torah grew in importance. In the course of time the prophets opposed this concept of the Torah and someone like Jeremiah expected something radical: a new people and a new covenant.

Body, Gender and Purity in Leviticus 12 and 15

Edited by Lester L. Grabbe, University of Hull, UK

Dorothea Erbele-Kuester, Johannes-GutenbergUniversitaet Mainz, Germany

This volume provides a series of contributions on the crucial aspects relating to the Bible and the Late Bronze Age period. The volume is introduced with a background essay surveying the main areas of history and current scholarship relating to Late Bronze Age Palestine and to the Egyptian New Kingdom. Key concerns are addressed by contributors including Knauf, Lemche and Mayes.

The so-called purity laws in Leviticus 11-15 reflect a cultic and social view of the body. These texts do not give detailed physiological descriptions. Instead, they prescribe what to do in the cases of skin disease, delivery and wo/man's genital discharges. But how do these texts construct the male and female body? Which roles does gender play within this language? Through themes such as menstruation and circumcision, the author unfolds the language used for the body in Leviticus and its interpretation history. The study provides material for a contemporary anthropology of bodies which relates the human sexed body to God's holiness.

Studies in Isaiah History, Theology, and Reception Edited by Tommy Wasserman, School of Theology, Sweden, Greger Andersson, Örebro University, Sweden & David Willgren, Lund University, Sweden Highlights Isaiah's process of composition and ongoing reinterpretation over time. The book is divided into two sections: the first part examines certain motifs woven through Isaiah, along with their origins. The second part of the book focuses on the history of reception, such as Paul's use of the book of Isaiah, and how Isaiah is used (and perhaps misused) in the growing churches of contemporary Africa. With a range of international specialists, including Hugh Williamson, Tommy Wasserman, and Knut Holter, this is an excellent resource for scholars seeking to understand Isaiah in greater depth.

Reading Ecclesiastes Intertextually Edited by Katharine Dell, Cambridge University, UK & Will Kynes, Whitworth University, USA Following on from Reading Job Intertextually (Dell and Kynes, 2012), this volume comprehensively analyses the intertextuality in this wisdom text, with a focus on resonances between Ecclesiastes and texts from the Hebrew canon, texts throughout history, and from existential and modern philosophy. That this is a collection of scholars with expertise in different areas means that different aspects of Ecclesiastes are opened up. The unique way of approaching the text, in which each contributor pursues the intertextual approach as is best suited to the topic, enables the reader to span a range of disciplines and subjects in the analysis of one text.

Isaiah, Jeremiah, and Ezekiel share much in common. They address the pivotal times and topics associated with the last stages of the monarchical history of Israel, and with the development of new forms of communal and religious life through exile and beyond. One important structural component of all three books is a substantial section which concerns itself with a range of foreign nations, commonly called the "Oracles against the Nations", which form the focus of this book.

The Elohistic Psalter has intrigued since the rise of historical-criticism in Biblical studies. The focus has been to discover the reason for the exclusive use of the name Elohim in Pss 42-83, as well as its historical circumstances. A key explanation has been offered for this: it was theologically motivated. Wardlaw Jr builds on research done into this topic to propose his own conclusion: that the name Elohim within the Psalsm is a theologically-laden term, and its use is related to pentateuchal traditions.

An Exegetical Study of Zechariah's Vision Report Lena-Sofia Tiemeyer, University of Aberdeen, UK Did Zechariah really see his visions? Tiemeyer examines the key exegetical problems involved in answering this question, including the distinction between visions and dreams, dream classification, conflicting sources of evidence for dream experiences, and rhetorical imagery as opposed to dream experience. Attention is focused on the transmission of the divine message to Zechariah, with the key question raised of whether a visual or oral impression is described. This description seeks to convey the seer’s visionary experience to his readers. In a trance state, Zechariah communicates with the 'Interpreting Angel', while also receiving glimpses of a deeper 'visionary world.'

[Re]Reading Again: A Mosaic Reading of Numbers 25 Anthony Rees, Charles Sturt University, Australia "A helpful panoramic overview of the interpretation of Numbers 25." Journal of Theological Studies Rees rejects the concept of one definitive reading of a biblical text and argues that the text itself can be described as a mosaic, with each new reading adding to this. Examining Numbers 25, Rees argues that the various approaches (narrative, feminist, postcolonial and historical-critical) to the text enable us to see different things as we read from different places. Moreover analysis of the book's interpretative history, including Josephus and Philo, shows us that creativity has always been a part of the reading process.

Responding to a Puzzled Scribe

The Substance of Psalm 24

The Barberini Version of Habakkuk 3 Analysed in the Light of the Other Greek Versions

An Attempt to Read Scripture after Brevard S. Childs

Joshua L. Harper, Africa International University, Kenya Joshua L. Harper demonstrates the following aspects of the Barberini version when compared with the other Greek versions: the Barberini was originally independent of the Septuagint but has been influenced by it in transmission. It was probably translated no earlier than the later books of the Septuagint and no later than the mid-3rd century AD. Harper works from these telling comparisons to scrutinize those previously unstudied aspects of the Barberini version.

'And He Will Take Your Daughters...' Woman Story and the Ethical Evaluation of Monarchy in the David Narrative April D.

The effect overall is to encourage the reader to respond by systematically calling into question the nature of the monarchy itself as a power system.

Bier, London School of Theology, UK Bier proposes here a strong new understanding of the Book of Lamentations, drawing on Bakhtinian ideas of multiple voices to analyse the poetic speaking voices within the text; examining their theological perspectives, and nuancing the interaction between them. Rather than reductively adopting any specific established approach, this book advocates a dialogic approach to Lamentations, reading to hear the full polyphony of pain, penitence, and protest.

Classifying the Aramaic Texts from Qumran A Statistical Analysis of Linguistic Features John Starr, University of Edinburgh, UK Here, for the first time, John Starr applies sophisticated statistical analyses to newly available electronic versions of the Qumran Aramaic scrolls. In so doing, Starr presents a potential new classification that comprises six different text types which bear distinctive textual features, allowing a more refined method of dating the classification and mapping its origins. Starr's re-visited classification presents fresh insights into the Aramaic texts at Qumran, with important implications for our understanding of the many strands that made up Judaism in the period leading to the writing of the New Testament.

Vulnerability and Valour

The New Jerusalem Texts

A Gendered Analysis of Everyday Life in the Dead Sea Scrolls Communities

Lorenzo DiTommaso, Concordia University, Canada

Jessica M. Keady, University of Chester, UK Uses three specific insights from social science and gender theory to shed light on the Dead Sea Scrolls and the community at Qumran. Underlying each of these three points is the premise that gender and purity in the Dead Sea Scrolls communities are performative, dynamic and constantly changing.

This book examines the New Jerusalem text and other Dead Sea writings that envision a New Jerusalem, and situates them within their larger literary and eschatological contexts. The first part of the book describes the discovery of the New Jerusalem text and its editions and translations; its seven manuscript copies and their overlaps; its distinctive content, with special attention to its genre and antecedents; and its date and provenance. This is followed by a presentation of other Dead Sea texts and apocalpytic writings.

Phinehas, the Sons of Zadok, and Melchizedek

The Temple in Text and Tradition

Priestly Covenant in Late Second Temple Texts

Edited by R. Timothy McLay, Independent Scholar, Canada

Dongshin Don Chang, Trinity Western University, Canada Dongshin Don Chang examines 1 and 2 Maccabees, the Dead Sea Scrolls, and Hebrews to see how the combined concepts of covenant and priesthood are defined and interlinked within various biblical and extra-biblical traditions. The three studies show the interesting and varying dynamics of the use of combined concepts of covenant and priesthood. The articulations of the two entities are shown to reflect, in part, the concern of the Second Temple Jewish authors; how significant the priestly institutions and priesthood were, not only in cultic matters, but also in relation to political and authoritative concerns.

A Festschrift in Honour of Robert Hayward

Literary output exploded in the Second Temple Period. Many of these writings coincided with the growth of the Jewish community beyond the borders of Israel and, therefore, among those for whom the Temple played an ever decreasing role. This collection of essays explores the rich traditions of the Jewish people as they were expressed and interpreted in their writings later recognized as Scriptures.

A History of the Hasmonean State

Michael Avioz, Bar-Ilan University, Israel

Kenneth Atkinson, University of Iowa, USA

This book fills the gap in studies examining the methodology of Josephus' re-writing of an entire biblical book. Avioz explores Josephus' adaptation of the books of Samuel, penetrating the exegetical strategies he employs to modify the biblical stories for his intended audience. This definitive exploration of Josephus' rewriting of Samuel illuminates the encounter between the ancient texts and its relevance to scholarly discourse today.

Josephus and Beyond Tells the exciting story of the nine decades of the Hasmonean rule of Judea (152-63 BCE) by going beyond the accounts of the Hasmoneans in Josephus in order to reconstruct how the Hasmonean family transformed their kingdom into a state that lasted until the arrival of the Romans. Atkinson draws on a variety of new sources including, among others, papyrological documentation, inscriptions, and archaeological evidence. Atkinson also examines Josephus’ accounts of the Hasmoneans and argues for further engagement beyond Josephus to gain a full appreciation of this unique historical period that shaped Second Temple Judaism.

New Vistas on Early Judaism and Christianity

Persian Influence on Daniel and Jewish Apocalyptic Literature

From Enoch to Montreal and Back

Vincente Dobroruka, University of Brasilia, Brazil

Edited by Lorenzo DiTommaso, Concordia University, Montreal, Canada & Gerbern S. Oegema, McGill University, Canada Over the past generation, the study of early Judaism and early Christianity has been revolutionised by new evidence from a host of sources: the Dead Sea Scrolls, the Pseudepigrapha, the New Testament Apocrypha, the Nag Hammadi texts, and new papyrus and amulet discoveries. This volume features chapters from leading scholars who approach these texts from a variety of perspectives. Among the chapters are contributions by Professors Gabriele Boccaccini (Michigan), James Charlesworth (Princeton), André Gagné (Concordia), Pierluigi Piovanelli (Ottawa), and Loren Stuckenbruck (Munich).

Dobroruka investigates the nature of the Iranian influence on Second Temple Judaism, addressing during this the problems created by a dualistic worldview, the Indo-European origins of Zoaster and his ideas, and the long term implications for the notion of free will. Dobroruka refers to a number of concepts that illuminate this influence, including the idea of an 'Anointed One', as well as the visionary experience of shamanistic type and the resurrection.

The Protevangelium of James Volume 1: Greek Text, English Translation, Critical Introduction George T. Zervos, University of North Carolina Wilmington, USA This is the first in a two-volume critical investigation of one of the earliest and most important of the New Testament Apocrypha, the Protevangelium of James (also known as the Infancy Gospel of James). Zervos challenges the prevailing view that the ProtJas is a 2nd century unitary document, and finds instead that it is a product of an ongoing redactional process by which a 1st century CE ‘heretical' text was progressively conformed to the ‘orthodox' Christian doctrine of the time.

T&T Clark’s Study Guides to the New Testament Series Editor: Benny Liew, Pacific School of Religion, USA Presenting the latest in biblical scholarship in an engaging format for students and those approaching biblical texts for the first time, each guide covers the historical issues surrounding the text before moving on to consider interpretative issues and the range of approaches available to readers of the text.

Matthew: An Introduction and Study Guide

Mark: An Introduction and Study Guide

The Basileia of the Heavens is Near at Hand

Shaping the Life and Legacy of Jesus

Elaine M. Wainwright, University of Auckland, New Zealand Recent decades have seen significant shifts in biblical scholarship opening up a range of ways of engaging the biblical narrative—both methodologically (the tools and techniques for engaging the text) and hermeneutically (the perspectives that inform an interpreter’s approach to the text and to the interpretative task). These shifts give shape to this introduction and study guide, so that students encounter not only the text of Matthew itself but also its rich lode of recent interpretation.

In this guide Abraham Smith examines all the key questions relevant to the study of Mark's gospel. Smith shows students how the gospel can be read as a traditional laudatory biography (a ‘Life’) to reshape the memory of the shame-ridden trials and suffering of Jesus. Smith shows how the gospel devotes a great amount of space to Jesus' training of his disciples to prepare them for the more difficult aspects of their journey. He also highlights how Jesus' heroic power is contrasted against the tyranny of the representatives of Rome.

The Acts of The Apostles: An Introduction and Study Guide Taming the Tongues of Fire Shelly Matthews, Brite Divinity School, USA In this guide, Acts is read as a struggle to tame the tongues of fire. Acts mutes the egalitarian promise of the Spirit through presenting an ‘orderly account’ (as its author calls it) of the Jesus movement that appeals to elite sensibilities. And, at the same time, the narrative contains contradictions, gaps and fissures that suggest the outlines of a more complex, and even subversive, religious movement.

Ephesians: An Introduction and Study Guide Being a Christian, at Home and in the Cosmos Stephen E. Fowl, Loyola University Maryland, USA

Considers the historical contexts, the literary forms, the social and rhetorical backgrounds, the politics, the theologies, and the reception of 2 Corinthians. Each chapter surveys recent scholarly approaches to the text, focussing especially on critical perspectives that mesh with our contemporary concerns about gender, identity, race and class. 2 Corinthians becomes, in the process, less the work of a single 1st-century writer than a set of fraught, even fractured negotiations between competing interests and impulses.

Introduces students to the theological and critical fruits of the letter to the Ephesians. On the theological front, Fowl shows how Ephesians offers an unparalleled cosmic vision of the significance of Jesus' death and resurrection, of the role of heavenly powers in the universe, and of how the community of Christians is to engage with those powers. On the critical front, Fowl provides an introduction to the key critical questions and issues, such as whether this letter was actually written to a church in Ephesus, and whether Paul the apostle was indeed the author of the letter.

1 & 2 Thessalonians: An Introduction and Study Guide

Historical Problems, Hierarchical Visions, Hysterical Anxieties

Encountering the Christ Group at Thessalonike

Joseph A. Marchal, Ball State University, USA

Richard S. Ascough, Queen's University, Kingston, Canada

Relatively brief and seemingly unassuming, Philippians is frequently underestimated by its readers and users. This guide shows that what lies within this letter is much more complicated and dynamic than many expect. Marchal examines the famous 'hymn of Christ' in detail as well as considering how the letter as whole would have functioned in Greco-Roman culture. Feminist and empire-critical approaches are introduced for students alongside more traditional ways of reading the text.

An overview of the historical development of the Christ group at Thessalonike. Moving beyond treating the canonical letters as simple repositories of theological opinions, Ascough demonstrates how 1 & 2 Thessalonians reveal ordinary life in ancient Roman cities. In so doing, he invites readers to enter the world of one of the many fascinating communities of Christ believers in the 1st century of the Common Era. Ascough narrates the story of the founding of the group by considering the social and cultural contexts, the literary form, the rhetorical strategies, the theologies, and the reception of the two canonical letters.

James: An Introduction and Study Guide

1 Peter: An Introduction and Study Guide

Diaspora Rhetoric of a Friend of God

Reading against the Grain

Margaret Aymer, Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary, USA

Elisabeth Schüssler Fiorenza, Harvard Divinity School, USA

The Letter of James has been greatly underestimated. Some have regarded it as no more than a random set of wisdom sayings with minimal theology. Many have dismissed it as too late a writing to be interesting for the beginnings of Christianity. In this guide Margaret Aymer sets out to counter such assessments. What might it mean, Aymer asks, for 21st-century people to take seriously a separatist migrant discourse not only as an interesting ancient writing but as a scripture, a lens through which its readers can glimpse the possibilities for how lives are to be lived?

1 Peter is a religious document written a long time ago and in a culture and world that is quite different from our own. However, as a biblical book it is a part of Christianity’s sacred Scriptures. This guide to the letter keeps both of these areas, the cultural-social and the ethicalreligious, in mind. It offers help for understanding the letter as both a document of the 1st century and as sacred Scripture that speaks about the religious forces that have shaped Christianity and western culture. In short, this guide seeks to enable readers to read ‘against the grain’.

The Letters of Jude and Second Peter: An Introduction and Study Guide Paranoia and the Slaves of Christ George Aichele, Adrian College, USA This guide surveys the more important historical, socio-cultural, theological, and literary factors we must grapple with in understanding these two letters. George Aichele's main approach is the method of semiotics, examining signifying mechanisms in each of the texts both independently and when they are read together. In an adventurous excursion, the letter of Jude is read intertextually with the classic science fiction/horror film, Invasion of the Body Snatchers (Siegel 1956), in order to explore the dynamics of paranoia.

Eric M. Vanden Eykel, Ferrum College, USA This study of the Protevangelium of James explores the interrelationship of authors, readers, texts, and meaning.

Divided into three parts, Vanden Eykel addresses specific episodes in the life of the Virgin, that present a uniform picture of how the reader's discernment of intertexts can generate new layers of meaning, and how these layers may reveal new aspects of the author's meaning.

From Tomb to Text

Barry D. Smith, Crandall University, Canada An examination of the biblical data relevant to the atonement, which charts its way through the various theories of atonement that have been advanced through time. Smith studies and synthesizes the biblical material and concludes that it supports both the penal-substitutionary version of the satisfaction theory and the Christus Victor theory of the atonement, each of which should be viewed as two parts of a more inclusive theory of atonement present in the New Testament.

The Body of Jesus in the Book of John

Matthew’s Presentation of the Son of David

Christina Petterson, University of Newcastle, Australia

H. Daniel Zacharias, Acadia Divinity College, Canada

The idea of writing plays a central role in John. Apart from the many references to scriptural texts, John also emphasizes the role of writing in the inscription on the cross. And then, in the last two chapters of the Gospel, the text points to itself as the place of revelation, as well as to its author. Petterson shows how John produces itself as the vehicle of Jesus’ revelation in place of a body. This takes place through its use of writing, its characteristic use of verbs and syntax, and its mode of revelation.

Presents a literary-critical analysis of the gospel of Matthew and its interaction with Davidic tradition and use of Davidic typology. Zacharias shows how the use of Davidic material presents to the reader a scripturally-grounded redefinition of what it means for Jesus to be the Son of David: not as a violent militant leader, but as a physical descendant of David, a healing shepherd, and a humble king.

Tribals, Empire and God

Quests of the Historical Jesus

A Tribal Reading of the Birth of Jesus in Matthew's Gospel

Colin Brown, Fuller Theological Seminary, USA

Zhodi Angami, Eastern Theological College, India This book is the first comprehensive work that offers a description of tribal biblical interpretation and shows its application by making a lucid reading of Matthew’s infancy narrative from a tribal reader’s perspective. Using reader-response criticism as his primary method, Zhodi Angami brings his tribal context of North East India into conversation with Matthew’s account of the birth of Jesus.

John: An Earth Bible Commentary

Jesus of Nazareth ranks among the most important figures in history. Yet there is no common agreement about his identity. Quests of the Historical Jesus is a major reassessment of the situation surrounding the history of Jesus. Brown looks at all the different approaches to the topic, and assesses how it can become politically charged – for instance, the Nazi attempt to make Jesus an Aryan critic of Judaism. The book concludes with ongoing questions – criteria, methods, and specific issues. Instead of seeking a bedrock of ‘facts,’ Brown stresses the role of hermeneutics in formulating questions and seeking answers.

Early Church Understandings of Jesus as the Female Divine The Scandal of the Scandal of Particularity

Judas Iscariot: Damned or Redeemed A Critical Examination of the Portrayal of Judas in Jesus Films (1902-2014) Carol A. Hebron, Charles Sturt University School of Theology, Australia Carol A. Hebron examines the figure of Judas across film history to show how his portrayal becomes more nuanced and more significant, even to the point where Judas becomes the protagonist with a role in the film equal in importance to that of Jesus'. Hebron examines how, in these films, we begin to see a rehabilitation of the Judas character and a restoration of Judaism, and she reveals the two distinct theologies that emerge – 'rejection' and 'acceptance' – with the latter rehabilitating the global reputation of Jews and Judaism in the wake of the Holocaust.

Sally Douglas, University of Divinity, Melbourne, Australia Jesus’ status inflames debate. Central to debates is whether Jesus uniquely embodies the divine. What the debates often eclipse is the reality that in many of the earliest strands of the Christian tradition when Jesus’ divinity is proclaimed, Jesus is imaged as the female divine. Sally Douglas investigates these early texts, excavates the motivations for imaging Jesus as Woman Wisdom and the complex reasons that this began to be suppressed in the 2nd and 3rd centuries. The work concludes with an exploration of the potent implications of engaging with the ancient proclamation of JesusWoman Wisdom in contemporary context.

The Quest for the Historical Jesus after the Demise of Authenticity Toward a Critical Realist Philosophy of History in Jesus Studies Jonathan Bernier, St Francis Xavier University, Nova Scotia, Canada Presently Jesus scholarship is dominated not by the question 'Who was Jesus?' but rather 'How do we even go about answering the question, "Who was Jesus?"?' With this current situation in mind, Jonathan Bernier undertakes a two-fold task: one, to engage on the level of the philosophy of history with existing approaches to the study of the historical Jesus, most notably the criteria approach and the social memory approach; two, to work with the critical realism developed by Bernard Lonergan in order to develop a philosophy of history that can elucidate current debates within historical Jesus studies.

Institutions of the Emerging Church Edited by Sven-Olav Back, Åbo Akademi University, Finland. & Erkki Koskenniemi, Abo Akademi University, Finland The contributors to this volume address the key institutions of the emerging Church, considering the development of rituals and sacraments, Church leadership, and the Church itself. The first part of the book deals with 'models' of the Church, that is, how the Church may be conceived of and described. The second part of the book looks at the offices of the Church: the Apostolate, the notion of Apostolic Tradition, and the development of religious authorities. Finally, part three looks at the sacraments, with in-depth consideration of the Eucharist, and of Baptistmal texts from the early Church.

Illiterate Apostles Uneducated Early Christians and the Literates Who Loved Them Allen Hilton, Wayzata Community Church, Minnesota, USA Pagan critics ridiculed the early Christians for being uneducated. We know this, because a few Christians took up pen to defend the uneducated members of their churches. Peculiarly, though, in their ‘defence’ these authors openly admit that the critics have the facts on their side. The Book of Acts even calls two of its heroes, Peter and John, illiterates. Why did these authors, intent on presenting Christianity in a positive light, volunteer such a negative detail? The answer reveals a fascinating social exchange that surrounded education levels in antiquity and made its way into the New Testament Book of Acts.

The Body of Jesus

Ancient Media, Memory, and Early Scribal Transmission of the Jesus Tradition

A Spatial Analysis of the Kingdom in Matthew

Alan Kirk, James Madison University, USA

Patrick Schreiner, Western Seminary, Portland, Oregon, USA

Alan Kirk rectifies the hitherto patchy reception of research on ancient media in synoptic scholarship as he mounts a defense, grounded in the practices of memory and manuscript transmission, of the Two Document Hypothesis. He shows how ancient media/memory approaches give new leverage on classic research problems in scholarship of the Gospels. The result of his efforts opens up new vistas to the reception of the Jesus tradition, its early scribal transmission and casts new light on long-conflicted questions in Christian origins.

The Davidic Shepherd King in the Lukan Narrative Sarah Harris, Carey Baptist College, New Zealand Beginning with the infancy narrative, Sarah Harris moves to later events portrayed in Jesus' ministry in which he is seen to enact his message as God's faithful Davidic shepherd, in particular, the parable of the Lost Sheep and the Zaccheus pericope (19:1-10). Harris uses this latter encounter to underline her thesis that Jesus may be hailed as a King by the crowds as he enters Jerusalem, but he is not simply a king. He is God's Davidic Shepherd King, as prophesied in Ezekiel 34, who brings the gospel of peace and salvation to the earth.

Patrick Schreiner conducts a spatial analysis of the Kingdom of God to show that Jesus’s purpose in Matthew is to reorder the space of the earth as the heavenly king. In the incarnation the barrier between heaven and earth is pierced and the spaces begin to collide in Jesus' ministry. Therefore, in Matthew, Jesus does not just promise a temporal or ethereal kingdom, but one that is located. Jesus is granted authority over this space and inspires people to follow him. The spatial kingdom begins in his body, and he extends it to his church by promising his continued presence.

Luke's Literary Creativity Edited by Mogens Müller, University of Copenhagen, Denmark & Jesper Tang Nielsen, University of Copenhagen, Denmark A combination of two classic discussions in New Testament scholarship, the contributions in this volume shed light on the still unsolved synoptic problem by using the well-coined concept of rewriting to describe the relationship between the synoptic gospels. The contributions work with the hypothesis that the synoptic tradition can be conceived of as a process of rewriting: Matthew rewrote Mark and Luke rewrote Mark and Matthew. This approach to the synoptic problem dismantles the grounds for the otherwise widely accepted two-source theory. If it can be shown that Luke knew Matthew’s Gospel the Q-hypothesis is superfluous.

An Intertextual Approach to Jesus' Laments Over Jerusalem and Stephen's Speech

This book brings together a set of new essays examining characters and characterization in Luke and Acts from a variety of methodological perspectives. They illustrate how narratological, sociolinguistic, reader-response, feminist, redaction, reception historical, and comparative literature approaches can be fruitfully applied to the question of Luke’s techniques of characterization. Theoretical and methodological discussions are complemented with case studies of specific Lukan characters.

Q in Matthew

Steve Smith, University of Chichester, UK Steve Smith examines the key texts which concern the destruction of the Jerusalem temple in Luke-Acts. He makes a thorough review of Luke’s use of the Old Testament, and proposes that relevance theory is a capable hermeneutic tool to reconstruct how Luke’s readers would have understood references to the Old Testament. Using this approach, the key texts from Luke-Acts are examined sequentially, and Luke’s apparent criticism of the temple is examined in a new light.

Representations of the Afterlife in Luke-Acts

Reading Acts in the Discourses of Masculinity and Politics

Alexey Somov, St Philaret Orthodox Christian Institute, Moscow, Russia

Edited by Eric Barreto, Princeton Theological Seminary, USA, Matthew L. Skinner, Luther Seminary, USA & Steve Walton, St. Mary's University, Twickenham UK

Why does Luke speak about several different forms of the afterlife? Why is resurrection described as a person's transformation into an angelic being? How many abodes are appointed for the righteous and the wicked after death? Alexey Somov addresses these queries in relation to the apparent confusion and variety found in the text, in respect of the interrelatedness of these issues, and their connection with other eschatological issues in Luke-Acts, and in relation to the wider cultural context of the Mediterranean world to which Luke belonged.

Engaging Acts from these two distinct but related perspectives - politics and masculinity - illuminates certain features of this book which are otherwise easily missed. These innovative approaches provide fresh angles to see how men, masculinity, and imperial loyalty were understood, experienced, and constructed in the ancient world and in earliest Christianity. Together, the essays provide a tightly woven and deeply textured analysis of Acts.

The Pericope of the Adulteress in Contemporary Research Edited by David Alan Black, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, USA & Jacob N. Cerone, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München, Germany

An Evaluation of the ‘Apocalyptic Paul’ in the Context of Jewish and Christian Apocalyptic Literature J. P. Davies, Trinity College Bristol, UK

The contributors to this volume re-examine the Pericope Adulterae (John 7.53-8.11), asking afresh the question of the paragraph’s authenticity. Each contributor suggests viable theories on how and why the earliest extant manuscripts omit the passage. Readers are encouraged to evaluate manuscript witnesses, scribal tendencies, patristic witnesses, and internal evidence to assess the plausibility of each contributor’s proposal.

Covering four key theological themes (epistemology, eschatology, cosmology and soteriology), J. P. Davies places Paul ‘among the apocalypses’ in order to evaluate recent attempts at outlining an ‘apocalyptic’ approach to his letters. While affirming much of what those approaches have argued, and agreeing that ‘apocalyptic’ is a crucial category for an understanding of the apostle, Davies also raises some important questions about the dichotomies which lie at the heart of the ‘apocalyptic Paul’ movement.

Reece helps answer the questions raised by Paul's claims about his letters: did he write the letters himself or were they always dictated by a scribe? How much did his scribes contribute to the composition of his letters, and did Paul proof-read? Why did Paul use 'large letters' in the letter to the Galatians?

Paul Among the Apocalypses?

Paul's Letters and the Construction of the European Self Fatima Tofighi, University of Religions, Iran Even when he was a prototype of European identity, Paul transgressed the limits of Europe. It is not clear whether he was conformist or rebellious, orthodox or liberal, sexist, or egalitarian. Instead of pushing Paul into the arbitrary categories of modern European identity, Fatima Tofighi takes into account the challenge that Paul brings to normative conceptions of political theology (Rom 13), 'religion' (Gal 2.12-14), and women's veiling (1 Cor 11. 5-16). Alternative interpretations of these passages, with the help of postmodern theory, both solve the major problems of biblical exegesis and offer a critique of the allegedly well-defined European categories.

Harnessing Chaos

The Open Mind

The Bible in English Political Discourse since 1968

Essays in Honour of Christopher Rowland

James G. Crossley, St. Mary's University, UK "Required reading for anyone who thinks that biblical exegesis is a historically neutral and purely antiquarian project." John S. Kloppenborg, University of Toronto, Canada An explanation of changes in dominant politicalized assumptions about what the Bible ‘really means’ in English culture since the 1960s. James G. Crossley looks at how the social upheavals of the 1960s, and the economic shift from the post-war dominance of Keynesianism to the post-1970s dominance of neoliberalism, brought about certain emphases and nuances in the ways in which the Bible is popularly understood, particularly in relation to dominant political ideas. Now includes a postscript incorporating political discussion since 2014.

Edited by Kevin Sullivan, Illinois Wesleyan University, USA & Jonathan Knight, York St. John University, UK This Festschrift to Christopher Rowland contains essays that shed light on the angelic contribution to the thought-world of developing Christianity. Additionally, certain of the essays assess the significance of the Jewish contribution to developing Christian ideology, including the impact of the original Jewish sources on the earliest Christian belief. Contributors include April DeConick, Paul Foster, John Rogerson, Tobias Nicklas and Andrei Orlov.

New Testament Verbs of Communication A Case Frame and Exegetical Study

Paul L. Danove provides a refinement of the Case Frame Analysis method as applied to the Greek of the New Testament. He shows how the method can be used in clarifying elements of Greek grammar, interpretation, and translation. In particular Danove distinguishes the semantic implications of active, middle, and passive usages of verbs, and establishes a rigorous basis for distinguishing semantic synonyms and near-synonyms and for clarifying their implications for interpretation and translation.

Jesus, the Sabbath and the Jewish Debate Healing on the Sabbath in the 1st and 2nd Centuries CE Nina L. Collins, Centre for Jewish Studies, University of Leeds, UK Jesus was surely criticised by the Pharisees for performing cures on the Sabbath. Or was He? A meticulous, unprejudiced evaluation of the relevant gospel texts shows that the historical Jesus was never criticised by historical Pharisees for performing Sabbath cures. In fact, Jesus and the Pharisees were in complete agreement for the need for cures on the Sabbath day. It is also clear that the Sabbath healing events in the gospels have preserved a significant part of the history of the early Jewish debate which sought to resolve the apparent conflict between the demands of Jewish law, and the performance of deeds of healing and/or saving life. This debate, from its Maccabean origins through to the end of the second century CE, is the subject of this book.

To whom were the gospels addressed? How can we know? Justin Marc Smith presents answers to these questions through his analysis of the gospels as works of ancient biography. The wider context of Jesus literature in the 2nd and 3rd centuries indicates the Christian practice of writing and disseminating literature on Jesus as widely as possible, and a secondary audience could well be the 'all nations' motif presented in the four canonical gospels.

Matthean Posteriority An Exploration of Matthew's Use of Mark and Luke as a Solution to the Synoptic Problem Robert K.

Explorations in the Farrer Hypothesis Edited by John C. Poirier, Kingswell Theological Seminary, USA & Jeffrey Peterson, Austin Graduate School of Theology, USA The Farrer hypothesis posits that Mark was written first, that Matthew used Mark as a source, and that Luke used both Mark and Matthew. All of the articles in the volume are written in support of the Farrer hypothesis, with the exception of the final chapter, which criticizes these articles from the perspective of the reigning Two-Document hypothesis. Contributors include Andris Abakuks, Stephen C. Carlson, Eric Eve, Mark Goodacre, Heather Gorman, John S. Kloppenborg, David Landry, Ken Olson, Jeffrey Peterson, and John C. Poirier.

The Followers of Jesus as the 'Servant' Luke’s Model from Isaiah for the Disciples in Luke-Acts Holly Beers, Westmont College in Santa Barbara, USA The portrayal of Jesus and His disciples in LukeActs is modelled after the human agent of the Isaianic New Exodus in Isaiah 40-66, the servant. This character is integral to the restoration, and his mission is embodied in how the New Exodus comes to fruition. The connection between the two figures is at times explicit, and Jesus can be seen to fulfil this role completely, while his followers also embody it.

Jesus and the Thoughts of Many Hearts

Genre and Narrative Coherence in the Acts of the Apostles

Implicit Christology and Jesus’ Knowledge in the Gospel of Luke

Alan J. Bale, Institute for Textual Studies and Electronic Editing, UK

Collin Bullard, First Baptist Church in Woodville, TX, USA In the Gospel of Luke, the aged Simeon foresees the future opposition which Jesus will face (2.34-35) and concludes his ominous oracle with a vivid description of the final outcome of Jesus’ ministry: '…so that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed' (2.35). Bullard presents an investigation of the narrative and Christological significance of this 'revelation of thoughts' in the ministry of Jesus, especially as this revelation is demonstrated and fulfilled in Jesus’ ability to know the thoughts in the hearts of those whom he encounters throughout the Gospel.

Focusing specifically on the issue of genre methodology in Acts, Bale presents work which will have clear ramifications for the study of biblical texts in general. He surveys the state of genre theory in Acts scholarship and demonstrates its inadequacy for both classifying and interpreting Acts before constructing a new genre model rooted in contemporary genre theory.

Raymond Brown, 'The Jews,' and the Gospel of John From Apologia to Apology Sonya Shetty Cronin, Florida State University, USA.

Paul's Declaration 'Neither Jew Nor Greek, Neither Slave Nor Free, Nor Male and Female' in the Context of FirstCentury Thought Karin B. Neutel, University of Oslo, Norway

A shift in focus in Johannine scholarship can be traced from the mid 1960s/70s to the present day. Commentators began to connect the Gospel's polemic against 'the Jews' with potential anti-Judaism in the text. To date, little work has been done to analyze how this increase in sensitivity came to be. Cronin has compiled a historiography of Raymond Brown's growing awareness of potential anti-Judaism in the gospel of John, using it to explain the larger trend in biblical studies.

What did Paul mean when he declared that there is ‘neither Jew nor Greek, neither slave nor free, nor male and female’ (Galatians 3:28)? While many modern readers understand these words as a statement about human equality, this study shows that it in fact reflects ancient ideas about an ideal or utopian community. With this declaration, Paul contributed to the cultural conversation of his time about such a community.

Taking a social identity approach, he investigates the inner logic of Paul from the ears of the Corinthian correspondence and argues that Paul consistently indoctrinates new values, based mainly on Scripture, ancient Jewish literature and the new social identity of the church, for the audience to uphold which are against the mainstream of social values in the surrounding society.

A Cosmopolitan Ideal

Paul, Scribe of Old and New Intertextual Insights for the Jesus-Paul Debate Yongbom Lee, Fuller Theological Seminary, USA In this study Yongbom Lee re-examines the old Jesus-Paul debate with insights from current studies on intertextuality in Paul. Lee identifies Paul’s typical ways of handling authoritative traditions in a number of cases providing a set of expectations as to how his use of them elsewhere might look. He also argues that Paul's knowledge and appreciation of the Jesus tradition, though viewed with skepticism, is sufficiently substantially used to provide evidence of its importance to him.

Swimming in the Sea of Scripture

Crucifixion and New Creation

Paul’s Use of the Old Testament in 2 Corinthians 4:7–13:13

The Strategic Purpose of Galatians 6.1117

Paul Han, London School of Theology, UK

Jeff Hubing, Northern Seminary, USA

Han argues that Paul is not only aware of the original contexts of the passages he refers to, but also the larger context of the Old Testament. While adapting the Scripture, the referents necessarily change and, whether it is Paul himself, the Corinthians or the opponents, Paul appears to use the method of identification in reading the Old Testament. This extends even to the point of identifying the Corinthians with the Servant of Isaiah, Jesus and God, from which it is suggested that there is a concept of 'corporate identity' present.

This book provides an interpretation of Galatians 6:11-17 which reveals how Paul draws on both the redemptive moment of Jesus’ death, and the ongoing cross-shaped life he lives, to validate his apostleship. In the first section of the book, the epistolary form and function of Galatians 6:11-17 are analysed. The theme of persecution in the letter is then explored before an exegetical analysis of Galatians 6:11-17 reveals Paul’s claim that the agitators’ primary motive is to avoid persecution ‘because of the cross of Christ.’ He contrasts them with himself by ‘boasting’ in that same cross.

Revelation's Hymns

Edited by Alicia J. Batten, University of Waterloo, Canada & John S. Kloppenborg, University of Toronto, Canada

Steven Grabiner, Outpost Centers International, USA

Commentary on the Cosmic Conflict

Split into two parts, this collection of essays first explores James' use of the teachings of Jesus: how he alters them and what this suggests about the audience to which he was preaching. Secondly, the analysis focuses on how 1 Peter uses Isaiah 53 and what this tells us about the historical Jesus. How has 1 Peter conflated early Jesus traditions with ancient Judaism to develop certain ideas? and how does 2 Peter allude to Gospel traditions? And how are early Jesus traditions, in turn, used as a sort of testimony?

Grabiner argues that the cosmic conflict is at the centre of the book’s concerns, and determines the function of the hymns with respect to this. This study allows the hymnic sections to engage with the larger narrative issue as to who is truly the rightful sovereign of the universe.

Religion and the Culture of Physical Improvement Michelle Mary Lelwica, Concordia College, USA This book explores how traditional religious norms and narratives are tacitly embedded in the construction and pursuit of physical improvement in contemporary western societies. Religious and commercial ideologies that incite conformity and control call us to go to war against those parts of our flesh that refuse to comply with the cultural ideal and encourage us to feel ashamed of our physical particularities. This shame is not a natural response to bodily girth, illness, chronic pain, physical impairment, and/or signs of aging. Rather, Michelle Mary Lelwica shows it is a religiously and culturally conditioned reaction to the commercially-fabricated fantasy of physical perfection.

Muslim Mission in an Age of Empire Ron Geaves, Cardiff University, UK This book charts the history of Muslim missionary activity in London from 1912 until 1944. Arguing that Muslim mission in this period needs to be placed in the context of colonial encounter, it argues that Muslim missionary activity in London was part of a variety of strategies to engage with European expansion and overzealous Christian missionary activity in India. Ron Geaves draws on research undertaken in India and Pakistan, where the Ahmadiya missionaries have kept extensive archives of this period which until now have been unavailable to scholars.

The Composition of the Qur'an Sufis and Salafis in the Contemporary Age Edited by Lloyd Ridgeon, University of Glasgow, UK Sufism and Salafism are commonly understood as two very different forms of Islam; Sufism as peaceful and mystical, and Salafism as strictly pietistic and moralist. This book explores the dynamics at play in the Sufi–Salafi relationship, featuring an introduction with an essential historical background; term definitions; and case studies from around the Islamic world.

Rhetorical Analysis Michel Cuypers, IDEO, Egypt "An innovative and important work which should become standard reading for all students of the Qur'an. Cuypers presents an innovative method based on the principle that the Islamic scripture shares with other Semitic texts certain rhetorical structures which have long been missed by Muslim and non-Muslim scholars alike." Gabriel Said Reynolds, University of Notre Dame, USA Using copious examples from the Qur'an, this is a landmark publication in the field of Qur’anic studies and will be of interest to scholars and researchers in Islamic studies, religious studies and Arabic studies.

A New Evolutionary Psychology of Religion

Historical and Cognitive Studies in the Roman Cult of Mithras

Essays by leading scholars in evolutionary psychology, anthropology, and religious studies demonstrate how religion may be related to evolutionary adaptations because religious commitments involve fitness-enhancing behaviours that promote reproduction, kinship, and social solidarity. The first book-length treatment specifically on costly signalling, sexual selection, and related evolutionary theories to explain religion.

Understanding Sport as a Religious Phenomenon An Introduction

Spirituality, Corporate Culture and American Business The Neoliberal Ethic and the Spirit of Global Capital James Dennis LoRusso, Princeton University, USA While many voices celebrate efforts to introduce "spirituality in the workplace" as a recent positive innovation, LoRusso argues that workplace spirituality is in fact more closely aligned with neoliberal ideologies that serve the interests of private wealth and undermine the power of working people. Drawing on cultural history as well as case studies from New York City and San Francisco, this book argues that religion reveals much about work, corporate culture, and business in contemporary America.

The study shows the complexity of "religion" inside one of the most fascinating global institutions of the world today.

The Philosophy of Knowledge: A History Four-Volume Set Edited by Stephen Hetherington, University of New South Wales, Australia The first in-depth survey of the history of knowledge in Western philosophy.

The Philosophy of Knowledge: A History presents the history of one of Western philosophy’s greatest challenges: understanding the nature of knowledge. Divided chronologically into four volumes, it follows conceptions of knowledge that have been proposed, defended, replaced, and proposed anew by ancient, medieval, modern and contemporary philosophers. Each volume centers around three key questions: what conceptions of knowledge have been offered? Which have shaped epistemology in particular and philosophy in general? How is knowledge conceived by philosophers now? Overseen by an international team of leading philosophers and featuring 50 speciallycommissioned chapters, this is a major collection on one of philosophy’s defining topics.

The Bloomsbury Encyclopedia of the American Enlightenment Two-Volume Set Edited by Mark G. Spencer, Brock University, Canada The first reference work on this key subject in early American history.

With over 500 original essays, The Bloomsbury Encyclopedia of the American Enlightenment provides a comprehensive account to complement the intense scholarly activity that has recently centered on the European Enlightenment. With substantial and original essays on the major American Enlightenment figures, including Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, David Rittenhouse, Benjamin Rush, Jonathan Edwards and many others, this wide-ranging collection also includes topical essays and entries on dozens of often-overlooked secondary figures. It has long been known that Americans made their own contributions to the Enlightenment, most notably by putting Enlightenment ideas to work in defining the American Revolution, the United States Constitution, and the nature of the early American Republic. These volumes show that the American Enlightenment was more far reaching than even that story assumes. Presenting a fresh definition of the Enlightenment in America, this remarkable work confirms that the American Enlightenment constitutes the central framework for understanding the development of American history between the 18th and 19th centuries.

Religious Studies: Comparative Religion Bloomsbury Academic Collections Six-Volume Set This set contains six facsimiles from our imprints T&T Clark, The Athlone Press, Sheffield Academic Press and Continuum and focuses on comparing the Abrahamic religions, Judaism, Christianity and Islam. The volumes in this collection compare the different religions based on their prophets, their teachings and cultural influence, but also in how they face the challenge of an increasingly secular world.
