Jacques Derrida and the Two Sources of Religion, Science, and the Media Michael Naas “Naas has opened a unique access to the way Derrida thinks and writes, which will be of great importance both for continental philosophy of religion and for our understanding of Derrida’s place within it. The careful scholarship, philosophical insight, and immense readability of this book will make it an indispensable resource for anyone who seeks to come to terms with Derrida’s arguments.”—Martin Hägglund, Harvard University 428 Pages 978-0-8232-3998-6 Paper, $30.00 Perspectives in Continental Philosophy

Postmodern Apologetics?

Arguments for God in Contemporary Philosophy Christina M. Gschwandtner

for courses

This book provides an introduction to the emerging field of continental philosophy of religion by treating the philosophical thought of its most important representatives (from Heidegger, Levinas, and Derrida to Ricoeur, Marion, Henry, Chrétien, Lacoste, and Emmanuel Falque), including its appropriations by several thinkers in the U.S.—such as John D. Caputo, Merold Westphal, and Richard Kearney. The book thus both provides an introduction to important contemporary thinkers and also argues that their philosophies can be read as providing an argument for Christian faith. 376 Pages 978-0-8232-4275-7 Paper, $27.00 Perspectives in Continental Philosophy


A Fundamental Concept of Aesthetic Anthropology Christoph Menke Translated by Gerrit Jackson “Force is an outstanding study of the philosophical, ethical, and political underpinnings of modern aesthetics and an important and original contribution to contemporary debates about the fate of modernity, philosophy, and the arts.”—Paola Marrati, Johns Hopkins University 160 Pages 978-0-8232-4973-2 Paper, $22.00

Reading Descartes Otherwise

Blind, Mad, Dreamy, and Bad Kyoo Lee “Kyoo Lee presents a timely reengagement with Descartes, exploring the allegorical and spectral edges of his thought with insights that sparkle and startle. Illuminating links with recent thinkers from Bachelard to Badiou show incisively that Descartes’s preoccupations with dreams, madness, and matter are still ours today, however differently we may appear to inflect them.”—Edward S.

Perspectives in Continental Philosophy Futurity in Phenomenology

Promise and Method in Husserl, Levinas, and Derrida Neal DeRoo “DeRoo’s original study of futurity in phenomenology constitutes a close and methodical reading of some of the most difficult pages written by Husserl, Levinas, and Derrida on time and its relation to subjectivity. The effort of opening for us this lucid path through such a dense forest is, without a doubt, worth taking, and the service provided to the reader gratefully appreciated, for a phenomenology that is not understood as essentially open to the future in its multiple modalities of awaiting, anticipation, and eschatology is not worth its name.”—John Panteleimon Manoussakis, College of the Holy Cross 224 Pages 978-0-8232-4464-5 Cloth, $55.00

The Early Heidegger’s Philosophy of Life

Facticity, Being, and Language Scott M. Campbell “This is a marvelous, painstaking work. Its analyses of Heidegger’s lecture courses over a crucial six-year period are meticulous and insightful, and a real contribution to Heidegger scholarship.”—Anne O’Byrne, Stony Brook University 288 Pages 978-0-8232-4220-7 Paper, $28.00

Coming to Life

Philosophies of Pregnancy, Childbirth and Mothering Edited by Sarah LaChance Adams and Caroline R. Lundquist for courses

Contributors: Sarah LaChance Adams, Melissa Burchard, Sonya Charles, Cynthia Coe, Frances Gray, Lisa Guenther, Candace Johnson, Eva Kittay, Caroline Rebecca Lundquist, Bertha Alvarez Manninen, Kelly Oliver, Dorothy Rogers, Rebecca Tuvel, Kayley Varnallis, Florentien Verhage, Gail Weiss, Talia Welsh

“Very little philosophical attention—and certainly little positive attention—has been paid to women’s experiences of pregnancy, childbirth and mothering. Critically focusing on those experiences, this groundbreaking collection explores how pregnancy and childbirth have been portrayed in the philosophical canon; the variety of forms that mothering and motherhood can take; how feminist phenomenology can illuminate the experiences of pregnancy, birth, and miscarriage; ethical and political questions surrounding pregnancy and childbirth; and how pregnancy and mothering are viewed by mainstream media and popular culture. This book is a must-read for feminists and philosophers of all stripes.”—Shannon Sullivan, Pennsylvania State University 384 Pages 978-0-8232-4461-4 Paper, $35.00

On Becoming God

Late Medieval Mysticism and the Modern Western Self Ben Morgan “It stands on its own as a new and essential contribution both to the interpretation of the significance of medieval mysticism and to questions of identity-formation.”—Niklaus Largier, University of California, Berkeley 304 Pages 978-0-8232-3992-4 Cloth, $55.00

The Metamorphosis of Finitude

An Essay on Birth and Resurrection Emmanuel Falque Translated by George Hughes “Emmanuel Falque is an important new voice in continental philosophy of religion. His study of human finitude and corporeality in light of questions of birth and resurrection represents one of the finest examples of the vigorous contemporary conversation between continental philosophy and theology.”—Christina M. Gschwandtner, University of Scranton 214 Pages 978-0-8232-3921-4 Paper, $28.00

Josiah Warren’s ideas remind us that thoughtful individuals can devise new approaches to economic issues.”—Maurice Hamington, Metropolitan State College of Denver 304 Pages 978-0-8232-3370-0 Cloth, $55.00

“This bold set of essays finally puts theology into the twenty-first century precisely because it confronts the core truth of our very existence—that energy is the omnipresent force shot through all things. But it is not some sloppy, vague thesis full of smoke and mirrors; it carefully unpacks the divinity of the cosmos in intellectually entertaining terms.

Subjectivity and Remembering in the Talmud Sergey Dolgopolski “A brilliant and innovative study of how the work of memory can transform human identity, weaving the speech and thought of the single person into the fabric of an ongoing transmission of sayings, refutations of sayings, defenses of sayings, refutations of defenses, and so on without end, until all that is left is a virtual identity awaiting reactivation by another learner who, in turn, is transformed into new pathways within the ever-growing work of memory.”—Bruce Rosenstock, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign 352 Pages 978-0-8232-4492-8 Cloth, $65.00

Freedom and Law

A Jewish-Christian Apologetics Randi Rashkover “Freedom and Law offers a prophetic and timely intervention in interreligious dialogue, combining a compelling analysis of law and sovereignty with extensive forays into critical theory and political philosophy as well. Rashkover’s insightful and generous yet provocative reading will prove to be a noteworthy touchstone in this field for years to come.”—Willie Young, Endicott College 336 Pages 978-0-8232-3453-0 Paper, $28.00

Mornings at the Stanton Street Shul

A Summer on the Lower East Side Jonathan Boyarin “In a journal that is always humane, and often humorous, Jonathan Boyarin lovingly details one summer in the life of the Stanton Street synagogue. Boyarin is the perfect tour guide to take us inside the ever-changing Jewish world on the Lower East Side—a place ‘where hip meets hip replacement.’ ”—Mort Zachter, author of Dough: A Memoir 226 Pages 978-0-8232-3900-9 Cloth, $24.95
