HISTORY OF PHILOSOPHY Descartes’ Philosophical Revolution: A Reassessment


Tao and Trinity

Hanoch Ben-Yami, Central European University, Budapest

Notes on Self-Reference and the Unity of Opposites in Philosophy

Ben-Yami shows how the technology of Descartes' time shapes his conception of life, soul and mind–body dualism; how Descartes' analytic geometry helps him develop his revolutionary conception of representation without resemblance; and how these ideas combine to shape his new and influential theory of perception.

Scott Austin, Texas A&M University, USA The Chinese Tao and the Western Trinity have a fundamental unity of theme: the unity of opposites. Both are connected with problems as broad and diverse as how to describe the entire universe, how a system can talk about itself, the relationship between symbols and realities, and the nature of signs and sacraments.

Kropotkin, Read, and the Intellectual History of British Anarchism

Material Religion in Modern Britain

Between Reason and Romanticism

Although marginal as a political force, anarchist ideas developed in Britain into a political tradition. This book explores this lost history, offering a new appraisal of the work of Kropotkin and Read, and examining the ways in which they endeavoured to articulate a politics fit for the particular challenges of Britain's modern history.

Edited by Timothy Willem Jones, La Trobe University, Australia, Lucinda Matthews-Jones, Liverpool John Moores University, UK 'Material Religion in Modern Britain makes an important contribution to the history of British religion, breaking new ground in its focus upon material culture as a means by which to understand the tensions and complexities of the modern spiritual landscape. This is a very well-crafted and insightful collection of essays which will certainly deepen our understanding of the influence of material culture upon modern religious beliefs and practices.' - Sue Morgan, University of Chichester, UK This volume contributes towards to developments in the study of religion that illuminate the plural nature of religious change in modern Britain. It makes a critical intervention in British studies of religion by bringing the analytical insights of material culture, to bear on religion in the British World.

Contents: Introduction * 1. Contexts: Anarchism in British Intellectual History, 1886-1968 * 2. Foundations: System-Building Philosophy * 3. Statism: The Power of History * 4. Revolution: The Journey to Communism * 5. Utopia: Imagining Post-Capitalist Society * Conclusion

The Spirit of Things

Matthew S. Adams, University of Victoria, Canada 'In a well-argued, contextualised account, Adams succeeds in restoring Kropotkin to the centre of socialist and anarchist debates in Britain in the late Victorian period. He also provides an admirably lively account of the intellectual inheritance of these engagements in subsequent decades through the lens of Herbert Read's life and ideas, restoring a sense of the vibrancy and sophistication of left-wing political theory through this period.' - Greg Claeys, Royal Holloway, University of London, UK

HISTORY OF PHILOSOPHY Postnarrativist Philosophy of Historiography Jouni-Matti Kuukkanen, University of Oulu, Finland

Natural, Supernatural, and Legal Approaches

Narrativism has made important contributions to the theory and philosophy of historiography but it is now time to move beyond it to postnarrativism. Kuukkanen shows how it is possible to reject the absolutist truth-functional evaluation of interpretations in historiography and yet accept that historiography can be evaluated by rational standards.

Zhongjiang Wang, Peking University, China, Misha Tadd, Translator, China 'In his new monograph, Order in Early Chinese Excavated Texts: Natural, Supernatural, and Legal Approaches, distinguished Peking University philosopher Wang Zhongjiang develops nothing less than a new, nuanced, and compelling interpretation of classical Chinese cosmology. With research fully informed by a close and careful reading of the newly recovered archaeological texts, Wang traces the evolution of order in this antique tradition from earliest religious assumptions to an understanding of cosmic order grounded in a discernable pattern of natural law as an inspiration for a concomitant conception of positive law for the human world.' Roger T. Ames, Professor of Philosophy, University of Hawai'i, USA

Plato’s Parmenides Reconsidered Mehmet Tabak, New York University, USA 'Plato is commonly thought to have developed a theory of forms early in his career, and then to have discovered irremediable errors in that theory later on. But, in this engaging book, Tabak demonstrates, quite decisively, that this common view of Plato is wrong. Plato's Parmenides Reconsidered raises crucial questions about the nature of philosophical writing. It is a bold and important book.' - Ram Neta, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, USA Plato's Parmenides Reconsidered offers a very accessible, detailed, and historically-sensitive account of Plato's Parmenides. Against the prevailing scholarly wisdom, he illustrates conclusively that Parmenides is a satirical dialogue in which Plato attempts to expose the absurd nature of the doctrines and method of his philosophical opponents.

Order in Early Chinese Excavated Texts

Jews and Christians in Thirteenth-Century France Edited by Elisheva Baumgarten, Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel, Judah D. Galinsky, Bar Ilan University, Israel 'This is a remarkable collection of articles which both deepens our understanding of problems long subjected to scrutiny and opens up entirely new vistas on Jewish-Christian relations in thirteenthcentury France. Because the authors are so learned and so attuned to the relevant scholarship on other times and places, scholars with a wide variety of interests should return repeatedly to the collection for information and stimulation. The editors brought together an amazing group of authors - and they have not disappointed.' - William Chester Jordan, Dayton-Stockton Professor of History, Princeton University, USA A period of great change for Europe, the thirteenth-century was a time of both animosity and intimacy for Jewish and Christian communities. In this wideranging collection, scholars discuss the changing paradigms in the research and history of Jews and Christians in medieval Europe, discussing law, scholarly pursuits, art, culture, and poetry.

RELIGION AND HISTORY The Ecumenical Legacy of the Cappadocians

Oxford, UK

Edited by Nicu Dumitraşcu, University of Oradea, Romania ‘The three Cappadocian Fathers have made a fundamental and enduring contribution to theology, alike in the East and West. Through their personal lives, they bore witness to the value of the Christian family and Christian friendship. Their teaching on the doctrine of the Trinity, on Christ's Incarnation, and on the inexhaustible mystery of the living God remains fresh and relevant to our contemporary situation. The many-sided presentations in this present volume show clearly the creative originality of the ecumenical legacy of the Cappadocians.’ Metropolitan Kallistos of Diokleia, University of

This volume adopts a multifaceted approach towards exploring the significant contribution which the Cappadocians made towards subsequent Christian thought. The contributors contextualize Cappadocian thought both within the context of Greek philosophy, as well as in relation to other Christian thinkers such as Origen.

Consolation in Medieval Narrative Augustinian Authority and Open Form Chad D. Schrock, Lee University, USA 'Schrock demonstrates how Augustine's understanding of time and approach to Scriptural interpretation opened up a profoundly creative space for human self-reflection in the Middle Ages. Combining criticism, philosophy, theology, and history in a dazzling piece of scholarship, Schrock's book functions as a moving piece of consolatory literature in its own right. A very important book by an outstanding scholar.' -Ephraim Radner, Professor of Historical Theology, Wycliffe College at the University of Toronto, Canada and author of Hope among the Fragments: The Broken Church and its Engagements of Scripture Medieval writers such as Chaucer, Abelard, and Langland often overlaid personal story and sacred history to produce a distinct narrative form.

GENERAL PHILOSOPHY AND PHILOSOPHERS Affectivity and Philosophy after Spinoza and Nietzsche

Lacanian Antiphilosophy and the Problem of Anxiety

Making Knowledge the Most Powerful Affect

An Uncanny Little Object

Stuart Pethick, Independent Scholar, Denmark Pethick investigates a much neglected philosophical connection between two of the most controversial figures in the history of philosophy: Spinoza and Nietzsche. By examining the crucial role that affectivity plays in their philosophies, this book claims that the two philosophers share the common goal of making knowledge the most powerful affect. Contents: Introduction * 1. Spinoza: Discovering What the Body Can Do * 2. Nietzsche: The Sign Language of the Affects * 3. Will-to-power: Redeeming the Body from the Ascetic Ideal * 4.

Brian Robertson, Independent Scholar, USA 'This exploration of anxiety provides not only a path-breaking rethinking of the concept of anxiety but also a wholly new way of thinking about Jacques Lacan. Through Robertson's careful analysis, we discover a Lacan who participates in the existentialist project by reformulating its key concepts rather than dismissing them. This book is a genuine breakthrough.' - Todd McGowan, University of Vermont, USA This book brings Jacques Lacan's work on the problem of anxiety into a jarring and fruitful confrontation with phenomenology, existentialism, and the 'jargon' of authenticity. Brian Robertson masterfully upends a host of received philosophical truths - most notably, and crucially, the idea that anxiety 'lacks an object.' Contents: Introduction: Have No Fear ... * 1.

Secular Messiahs and the Return of Paul’s ‘Real’


A Lacanian Approach Concetta V. Principe, York University, Canada ‘In addition to its superb treatment of contemporary philosophy and cultural theory, Principe's book engages with a rich array of early Jewish texts with a breadth and sophistication that distinguishes it from almost everything else written about these issues to date. Principe is clearly a thinker of crucial importance, and her work on Paul as a figure of trauma within secularism and universalism will be recognized as having far-reaching implications.' - Ward Blanton, University of Kent, UK This project engages with scholarship on Paul by philosophers, psychoanalysts, and historians to reveal the assumptions and prejudices that determine the messiah in secularism and its association with the exception.

Rumi and Shams’ Silent Rebellion Parallels with Vedanta, Buddhism, and Shaivism Mostafa Vaziri, University of Innsbruck, Austria ‘In these troubled times, when many focus their attention on the differences between religions, Vaziri masterfully presents us with the vision of one of Islam's greatest saints who perceived the same divine spirit of love and wisdom operating in all religions.’ - Mark S. G. Dyczkowski, Sanskritist and Scholar of Kashmir Shaivism and Tantra This book offers a paradigm shift and fresh interpretation of Rumi's message.

Explorations in Post-Secular Metaphysics Josef Bengtson, University of Southern Denmark 'Amid our post-secular age, we are witnessing not just a 'return of religion', which never went away, but also the resurgence of metaphysics – reflections on the nature of reality. In this superb work, Josef Bengtson shows that all conceptions of postsecularity rest on metaphysical assumptions. Thus politics cannot be equated with second-order issues of left-right or state-market but has to involve first-order questions about the order of things – including shared substantive ends such as individual fulfilment, mutual flourishing and the common good. This is a brilliant book that needs to be read by all those interested in the concepts that can map our present.' - Adrian Pabst, Senior Lecturer in Politics, University of Kent, UK, and author of Metaphysics: the creation of hierarchy (2012) This book explores the metaphysical assumptions that underlie different interpretations of the relationship between religion and the secular, faith and reason, and transcendence and immanence. It explores different answers to the question of how people of diverse religious and cultural identities can live together peacefully.

The Metaphysics of Emergence


Richard Campbell, Australian National University This book argues that a plausible account of emergence requires replacing the traditional assumption that what primarily exists are particular entities with generic processes.

Rewriting Empathy in the Context of Philosophy

Against Orthodoxy Social Theory and Its Discontents Stanley Aronowitz, Graduate School, City University of New York, USA 'Stanley Aronowitz is a national treasure and he proves it once again with Against Orthodoxy. Every page bristles with brilliance as he weaves his way through the work of some of the intellectual giants of social theory. Not only does this book provide a witness to public memory, it also ties together different strands of social theory while providing a historical and relational context for understanding the writers and theories under discussion. This book is invaluable for both academics and the wider public; a gift to theory and why it matters–a gift to all of us struggling for a better and more just world.' - Henry Giroux, McMaster University, Canada, Author of The Violence of Organized Forgetting The book contains groundbreaking and immersive essays on crucial 20th Century scholars on social theory, discussed and analyzed from a radical, critical theory perspective. Aronowitz provides his unique and lauded critical eye toward the leading thinkers of our age, crafting an immersive set of essays on radical thought. Contents: 1. The Unknown Herbert Marcuse * 2. Between Criticism and Ethnography: Raymond Williams and the Invention of Cultural Studies * 3. A Critique of Methodological Reason * 4. George Lukacs’s Destruction of Reason * 5.

Lou Agosta, Psychotherapist, Chicago, USA ‘Lou Agosta has written a delightful and much needed book on the evolution and genesis of the idea of empathy. His deep appreciation and understanding of the writings of Hume, Kant, Lipps, Freud, Scheler and Husserl allows him to recognize, explore and ultimately fashion a wonderfully clear and practical notion of empathy, one in which we not only come to know the other as we listen with care, understand with insight, and interpret with feeling, but also one in which we learn to communicate openly and respond with humanity. In bringing together the skills of the philosopher and the experience of the psychotherapist, Lou Agosta helps us to understand the steady rise of empathy and why it informs and inspires so many modern-day disciplines and professional practices. For all those wishing to revel in empathy's rich provenance, this is the book for you.’ - David Howe, Emeritus Professor, University of East Anglia, Norwich, UK and author of Empathy: What It Is and Why It Matters A rumor of empathy in vicarious receptivity, understanding, interpretation, narrative, and empathic intersubjectivity becomes the scandal of empathy in Lipps and Strachey. Yet when all the philosophical arguments and categories are complete and all the hermeneutic circles spun out, we are quite simply in the presence of another human being.

CONTINENTAL PHILOSOPHY Theatres of Immanence Deleuze and the Ethics of Performance

Now available in paperback

Laura Cull Ó Maoilearca, Surrey University, UK 'Laura Cull breaks with the mutual distrust between theater and philosophy that has kept both disciplines from recognizing their myriad entanglements.

Drawing from Goat Island, Butoh, Artaud and Kaprow, as well from Deleuze, Bergson and Laruelle, the book conceives performance as a way of thinking immanence.

Mihail Evans, Institute for Advanced Studies, Romania Recent years have seen the rise of anti-politics as a political phenomenon. Beyond this new rejection of the political class there has long existed a deeper challenge to the political itself. Identifying the work of Derrida as 'a politics' and that of Baudrillard as 'transpolitics' this book charts convergences and divergences in their approaches. Contents: Introduction * 1. The Symbolic and the Impossible * 2. The Subject of the Simulacrum * 3. The Media of the Event * 4. The Silent Majorities and the Democracy-to-come * Conclusion: Beyond Anti-Politics

Metaphysics and Music in Adorno and Heidegger explains how two notoriously opposed German philosophers share a rethinking of the possibility of metaphysics via notions of music and waiting. This is connected to the historical materialist project of social change by way of the radical Italian composer Luigi Nono.

Frank Ramsey and the Realistic Spirit Steven Methven, Worcester College, University of Oxford, UK This book attempts to explicate and expand upon Frank Ramsey's notion of the realistic spirit. In so doing, it provides a systematic reading of his work, and demonstrates the extent of Ramsey's genius as evinced by both his responses to the Tractatus LogicoPhilosophicus, and the impact he had on Wittgenstein's later philosophical insights.

Modern Slavery

The Moral Equality of Humans and Animals

The Margins of Freedom Julia O’Connell Davidson, University of Nottingham, UK 'Passionately written, brilliantly researched and replete with powerfully logical analysis, Julia O'Connell's book should be required reading for anyone claiming leadership in today's 'new abolitionist movement.' Modern Slavery and The Margins of Freedom establishes beyond dispute that today's self-described antislavery movement fails to address the fundamental realities of what slavery actually is and what is driving its rapid expansion all over the globe. Why, the book asks, do today's abolitionists focus so narrowly on certain forms of enslavement while utterly ignoring so many other equally heinous practices? The deeply disturbing answers to this question demand that today's abolitionists reexamine our beliefs and revise our basic assumptions.' - James Brewer Stewart, Founder, Historians Against Slavery and James Wallace Professor of History Emeritus, Macalester College, USA

Mark Bernstein, Purdue University, USA Received opinion has it that humans are morally superior to non-human animals; human interests matter more than the like interests of animals and the value of human lives is alleged to be greater than the value of nonhuman animal lives. Since this belief causes mayhem and murder, its de-mythologizing requires urgent attention. Contents: Preface * 1. On the Relative Unimportance of Human Interests * 1.1. Setting the Stage * 1.2. What Do We mean When We Say that Human Interests are More Significant than Animal Interests? * 1.3. Does the Cosmos Inform Us that Human Interests are More Significant than Animal Interests? * 1.4. Should Humans Consider Human Interests More Significant than Animal Interests? * 2. On the Relative Unimportance of Human Life * 2.1. Setting the Stage * 2.2. The Disvalue of Death Argument * 2.3. Why Your Death is Less Important than You Think * 2.4. The Problem With Valuing Capacities * 2.5. From Preservation to Creation * 2.6. Mill’s Argument * Conclusion

Providing a unique critical perspective to debates on slavery, this book brings the literature on transatlantic slavery into dialogue with research on informal sector labour, child labour, migration, debt, prisoners, and sex work in the contemporary world in order to challenge popular and policy discourse on modern slavery.

The Mystery of Moral Authority

Law and Society

Russell Blackford, University of Newcastle, Australia 'The mystery of moral authority is that we persist in attributing objective and inescapable authority to moral judgments even though there are so many reasons not to do so. The Mystery of Moral Authority is an accessible, up-to-date, thorough, convincing, and fair-minded attempt to show that the 'mystery of moral authority' has not been, and most likely will not be, solved. To solve it one would need to explain the source of the allegedly inescapable objective authority that is commonly thought to characterize moral judgments. In this book Blackford recommends that we replace the idea of morality as a collection of truths about how we ought to live with the idea that it is a modifiable social technology aimed at finding ways to live in groups. This realization frees us to replace outmoded moral norms with practical ones more appropriate to our present needs and circumstances.' - Richard Garner, author of Beyond Morality

Deborah Cao, Griffith University, Australia 'For anyone concerned about the suffering of animals, nothing can be more important than the attempt to improve animal protection in China. This movement will have to come predominantly from the Chinese people themselves, and they will take their own path, which may not be the same as the path currently being taken in the West. Nevertheless, we in the West may be able to encourage and assist them in some ways. To do that we first need to understand what the situation with regard to animals in China is. Reading Animals in China: Law and Society is an essential step towards that greater understanding. Deborah Cao covers a wide area, and although her focus is on the law, she also helps us to understand Chinese cultural practices with regard to animals and the philosophical background to them.' - Peter Singer, Ira W. DeCamp Professor of Bioethics at Princeton University, USA and Laureate Professor at the University of Melbourne, Australia Just as China is called the world factory for manufactured goods, it is also a world factory for manufactured animal cruelty in a new phenomenon of globalized animal cruelty. Animals in China examines animal protection in China in its legal, social and cultural contexts. Contents: Foreword * Preface * Acknowledgements * 1.

Edited by Antonio Calcagno, King’s University College, Canada, Jean Harvey, University of Guelph, Canada 'Admirers of Jean Harvey's earlier work will be fascinated to read Civilized Oppression and Moral Relations. Yet this new book also stands on its own and is an important development of Harvey's insights into the relationships among the agents of civilized oppression, their victims, and the bystanders who witness it. Drawing upon feminist philosophy, Harvey recognizes the 'shared fallibility' of agents, bystanders, and victims alike, and argues compellingly for the importance of personal relationships and moral solidarity as ways to resist civilized oppression.' - Christine D. Overall, Queen's University, Canada This book discusses how civilized oppression (the oppression that involves neither violence nor the law) can be overcome by re-examining our participation in it. Moral community, solidarity and education are offered as vibrant strategies to overcome the hurt and marginalization that stem from civilized oppression. Contents: 1. Introduction * 2.

Ethics and Philosophical Critique in William James Sarin Marchetti, University College Dublin, Ireland 'Sarin Marchetti has written a fresh and strikingly original interpretation of William James's moral philosophy. He focuses on James's distinctive approach to ethics and also illuminates the full range of James's pragmatism. Marchetti shows how the goal of philosophical reflection in James should be a personal transformation in the way we understand and conduct ourselves. This book is essential reading for anyone interested in William James and contemporary moral philosophy.' - Richard J. Bernstein – New School for Social Research, USA Marchetti offers a revisionist account of James's contribution to moral thought in the light of his pragmatic conception of philosophical activity. He sketches a composite picture of a Jamesian approach to ethics revolving around the key notion and practice of a therapeutic critique of one's ordinary moral convictions and style of moral reasoning.

ETHICS AND MORAL PHILOSOPHY Science and the End of Ethics Stephen G. Morris, Department of Political Science, Economics & Philosophy, College of Staten Island (CUNY), USA ‘Moral skepticism is an ancient idea, but the debate over its merits has been recently enlivened by a suspicion that scientific findings about the evolutionary sources of human moral thinking might somehow favor the skeptic's case. Stephen Morris stakes out a radical skeptical position boldly and clearly: science gives us strong reasons to doubt the existence of moral facts. But Morris's aims are ultimately constructive; in a sensitive and novel discussion, he provides suggestions as to how science could nonetheless help us to live more cooperative and harmonious lives.’ - Richard Joyce, Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand Science and the End of Ethics examines some of the most important positive and negative implications that science has for ethics. On the basis of strong scientific reasons for abandoning traditional notions of right and wrong, it endorses a new ethical approach that focuses on achieving some of the key practical goals shared by ethicists.

Without Ground: Lacanian Ethics and the Assumption of Subjectivity

Now available in paperback

Calum Neill, Edinburgh Napier University, Scotland 'Over the years the scholarly output on 'Lacanian ethics' has become so vast as to induce intellectual indigestion in whoever decides to enter the field— but not for much longer. In this brilliant book, Calum Neill exempts the reader from having to trawl through endless realms of Lacan-scholarship by offering the clearest, most concise, and most poignant discussion of what is really at stake: a radical re-consideration of all the crucial dimensions of ethics (the law, morality, guilt, responsibility and desire) in light of a fundamental review of the very notion of subjectivity. If you, reader, now hold this book in your hands, I can only give you one sound advice: Eat it!' - Dany Nobus, Professor of Psychology and Psychoanalysis, Brunel University London, UK In this groundbreaking book, Calum Neill explores the ideas of Jacques Lacan to present a powerful argument for an approach to ethics which is neither rooted in a traditional morality nor reduced to a relativism, an ethics, that is, which is without ground.

Reading Karl Barth, Interrupting Moral Technique, Transforming Biomedical Ethics Ashley John Moyse, University of Newcastle, Australia 'This book persuasively diagnoses and critiques a widely-held foundational belief that biomedical ethics can operate according to a neutral and universal common morality applicable in all contexts. Moyse's challenge to this consensus view deserves to be widely read.' - David Clough, Professor of Theological Ethics, University of Chester, UK This volume proposes a move away from the universalized and general modern ethical method, as it is currently practiced in biomedical ethics, while aiming toward a decision making process rooted in an ontology of relationality. Moyse uses the theological ethics of Karl Barth, in conversation with a range of thinkers, to achieve this turn. Contents: Introduction * 1.

Active Intolerance Michel Foucault, the Prisons Information Group, and the Future of Abolition Edited by Perry Zurn, Hampshire College, USA, Andrew Dilts, Loyola Marymount University, USA ‘This is a powerful and compelling set of essays exploring the context and legacy of the Prisons Information Group and how their work might be useful today. Decentering Foucault does more than rightly recognize the role of others in this group. It also helps us to understand Foucault's abiding interest in collaboration, an interest that is reflected in both his academic and activist work.' - Stuart Elden, University of Warwick, UK Formed in the wake of May 1968, the Prisons Information Group (GIP) was a radical resistance movement active in France in the early 1970's.

RELIGION AND SOCIAL JUSTICE Church in an Age of Global Migration


Postcolonial Discipleship of Embodiment

A Moving Body Edited by Susanna Snyder, Oxford Centre for Ecclesiology and Practical Theology, Ripon College, Cuddesdon, UK, Joshua Ralston, School of Divinity, University of Edinburgh, UK, Agnes M. Brazal, St. Vincent School of Theology at Adamson University, The Philippines

An Asian and Asian American Feminist Reading of the Gospel of Mark

University, USA

Jin Young Choi, Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School, USA ‘This study of the Gospel of Mark represents an incisive conjunction of early Christian studies with postcolonial and feminist studies. It advances a postcolonial feminist approach from the particular perspective of the Asian and Asian American context, thereby raising the problematic of ethnic-racial studies as well. The result is a different reading of the dynamics and mechanics involving the characters of Jesus and followers—one in which the presence of absence and the voice of silence are highlighted. Markan studies is much the richer for it.’ - Fernando F. Segovia, Oberlin Graduate Professor of New Testament and Early Christianity, Vanderbilt

Jin Young Choi rereads discipleship in the Gospel of Mark from a postcolonial feminist perspective, developing an Asian and Asian American hermeneutics of phronesis. Colonized subjects perceive Jesus' body as phantasmic. Discipleship means embodying the mystery of this body while engaging with invisible, placeless and voiceless others. Contents: Introduction * PART I: APPROACHING MARK * 1. Rereading Discipleship * 2. Knowledge, Body, and Subjectivity in Theoretical Frameworks * 3. Asian and Asian American Feminist Hermeneutics of Phronesis * PART II: A PHRONETIC READING OF MARK * 4. Empire and Body: Bodies, Territories, and Language * 5. The Phantasmic Body (Mark 6:45-52) * 6.

Are there historical and philosophical roots? Is suicide a Buddhist tradition? Is selfimmolation politically effective? This spiritually profound book is vital reading in desperate times.' - Maxine Hong Kingston, Institute of East Asian Studies, University of California, Berkeley, USA Using Kenneth Burke's concept of dramatism as a way of exploring multiple motivations in symbolic expression, Tibet on Fire examines the Tibetan self-immolation movement of 2011-2015.

The Formative Years of EATWOT

Kairos, Crisis, and Global Apartheid The Challenge to Prophetic Resistance Allan Aubrey Boesak, Christian Theological Seminary, USA 'Boesak saw apartheid in South Africa for what it was: heresy. Thirty years later he sets his eyes on the apartheid girdling our globe, making critical connections between issues too-often presented as separate. Reading the signs of our time, Boesak urges us to resist. A prophet speaks. We would do well to listen—and act in hope.' - Melanie Duguid-May, Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School, USA In 1985, the Kairos Document emerged out of the anti-apartheid struggle as a devastating critique of apartheid and a challenge to the church in that society. This book is a call to discern new moments of crisis, discernment and kairos, and respond with prophetic resistance to global injustice. Contents: Introduction * 1. Hearing the Cry and Reading the Signs of the Times: ‘A Humanity with a Kairos Consciousness’ * 2. At the Heart of it All: Kairos, Apartheid and the Calvinist Tradition * 3. ‘The Time for Pious Words is Over’: Kairos, Decision and Righteous Choices * 4.

M.P. Joseph, Chang Jung Christian University, Taiwan 'The most important theological developments for churches, inter-religious dialogues, and our common global humanity do not arise from developed countries. Since the 1976 founding of the Ecumenical Association of Third World Theologians, the future of healthy, communal interaction among and between people, the environment, and the cosmos continues to unfold from the Third World or developing nations. Joseph has written a masterful, even magisterial, account of the hope and challenges of EATWOT and how we have to heed its message in order for humankind and all there is to survive in the twenty-first century.' - Dwight N. Hopkins, University of Chicago Divinity School, USA, and author of Being Human: Race, Culture, and Religion The Ecumenical Association of the Third World Theologians illuminated the struggles of liberating the poor, and sought to do theology with the marginalized seeking freedom, gender co-responsibility, and racial and ethnic equality.

Edited by Julius Bailey, Wittenberg University, USA 'Provocateur, egotist, sage, and artist, no figure in the past decade of popular culture has reflected and defined the zeitgeist better than Kanye West. This collection lays bare the tangle of complexities and contradictions that have made the artist and the art indispensable to our era and proves that if game recognizes game, wisdom does too.' - Jelani Cobb, author of The Substance of Hope: Barack Obama and the Paradox of Progress Through rap and hip hop, entertainers have provided a voice questioning and challenging the sanctioned view of society.

Emily Dickinson’s Rich Conversation Richard E. Brantley, University of Florida, USA 'Brantley demonstrates triumphantly, through his generous and engaging consideration of Dickinson’s range of personae and of her innumerable interlocutors, living or dead - in an oeuvre tuned in both to Anglo-American poetry and to AngloAmerican philosophy and science - that what he calls her ‘life-writing’ exhibits essentially an ‘allegiance to dialogue’ . . . Richard Brantley is a superbly gifted critic and (if one may use that term) a master of Dickinson’s oeuvre.’ - Richard Gravil, The Wordsworth Circle Emily Dickinson's Rich Conversation is a comprehensive account of Dickinson's aesthetic and intellectual life. Through her letters and poems, Brantley identifies Dickinson's dialogue with John Locke's rational empiricism, Charles Darwin's evolutionary biology, Wordsworth's "natural Methodism," and Emerson's idealism.

Theatre and Aural Attention Stretching Ourselves George Home-Cook, Independent Researcher, UK "This is a rigorous, innovative piece of scholarship that forgoes conventional wisdom about sound and hearing in favour of a new paradigm of theatrical attendance that demonstrates the complexity of this act, especially in productions that challenge audiences sonically. George Home-Cook articulates thought processes, bodily experiences, and ways of interpreting acoustic phenomena that often go unnoticed or may only be partially understood. This book demonstrates how much there is to learn about, and from, self-reflexive attention to the act of listening in theatre." - Adrian Curtin, University of Exeter, UK Theatre and Aural Attention investigates what it is to attend theatre by means of listening. Focusing on four core aural phenomena in theatre – noise, designed sound, silence, and immersion - George Home-Cook concludes that theatrical listening involves paying attention to atmospheres.

PHILOSOPHY OF ART, FILM AND LITERATURE Understanding Pornographic Fiction

Sex and Ethics in Spanish Cinema

Sex, Violence, and Self-Deception Charles Nussbaum, University of Texas at Arlington, USA This work defends two main theses. First, modern Western pornographic fiction functions as a selfdeceptive vehicle for sexual or blood-lustful arousal; and second, that its emergence owes as much to Puritan Protestantism and its inner- or this-worldly asceticism as does the emergence of modern rationalized capitalism.

Deleuze and Beckett Edited by S.E. Wilmer, Trinity College, Dublin, Ireland, Audronė Žukauskaitė, Lithuanian Culture Research Institute, Lithuania 'The respective projects of Gilles Deleuze and Samuel Beckett may seem very divergent. Yet their conjunction produces some extraordinarily rich avenues of enquiry. This exhilarating collection of essays offers rewarding discussions of encounters between philosophical and performative, between the open-ended spaces of creativity and the closed spirals of memory and decline. It is highly recommended to anyone interested in Deleuze and Beckett, and in the intersections between philosophy and literature.' - Mary Bryden, University of Reading, UK Deleuze and Beckett is a collection of essays on specific aspects of the Deleuze and Beckett interface. Some of the world's leading Beckett and Deleuze specialists apply different concepts of Deleuzian philosophy to a wide range of Beckett's oeuvre, including his novels, short stories, and stage, film and television work.

Jameson S. Workman, Independent Scholar, USA 'Maintaining a radical, unconventional, and ambitious thesis, to say the least, Workman makes his case so fully, and with such learning and conviction, that even his most resistant readers will find themselves forced to interrogate the comfort zone of their own critical habits of mind. Whether or not Workman succeeds entirely in elevating Chaucer's poetics into the neo-Platonic sublime remains an open question. But what is certain is this: Written with boldness and panache, this wonderfully readable study articulates an interpretative position that is unique among contemporary studies - not only of Chaucer, but of medieval literature generally.' - Peter W. Travis, Professor of English, Dartmouth College, USA Drawing from classical myth, the history of philosophy, literature, film, music, and painting, Workman connects the artistic claims of Chaucer and tests them against similar gestures in the history of philosophy and literature. What results is a radical retake on Chaucer as a philosopher and poet, upending any preconceived views. Contents: 1. Poetry’s Old War * 2. The Broken Flood of the Miller’s Tale * 3.

Human Rights Education Beyond Universalism and Relativism

Nataly Z. Chesky, State University of New York, New Paltz, USA, Mark R. Wolfmeyer, Kutztown University, USA

A Relational Hermeneutic for Global Justice Fuad Al-Daraweesh, The University of Toledo, USA, Dale T. Snauwaert, The University of Toledo, USA 'Human Rights Education Beyond Universalism and Relativism offers educators the foundation of the reconciliation of two seemingly contradictory approaches to the spheres of human experience that have given rise to the concept of human rights, universalism and cultural relativism, contending modes of thinking that have posed challenges to the emergence of a global moral inclusion regime. Al-Daraweesh and Snauwaert offer a framework and a potential alternative world view that holds the promise of constructive, potentially transformative change, and provide an unambiguous goal for this alternative, global justice.' – From the preface by Betty A. Reardon, founder and director of the Peace Education Center and Peace Education Graduate Degree Concentration, Teachers College, Columbia University, USA Through the preservation of the social, political, and cultural autonomies of peoples within diverse cultural contexts, Al-Daraweesh and Snauwaert propose a relational epistemology for human rights education.

Bruce Moghtader, University of Victoria, Canada 'Succinct, accessible, insightful, Foucault and Educational Ethics is indispensable reading, a book both to study and to teach, a book that shows us that education can be 'a process where one finds, loses and transforms oneself in the activity of learning.' Not the final word on Foucault, this primer is a powerful and provocative beginning.' - William F. Pinar, Professor and Canada Research Chair, University of British Columbia, Canada By investigating Michel Foucault's ethics, the book explores how we form ourselves as ethical subjects. This question is inseparable from the activities we take on to educate others and ourselves. Foucault's questioning of the ways we know ourselves and the ways we conduct ourselves assists thinking and action in present educational ethics. Contents: 1. Introduction * 2.

This book is fantastic-a must read!' - Steven Kotler, a New York Times bestselling author, award-winning journalist, and cofounder and director of research for the Flow Genome Project How Creativity Happens In The Brain is about the brain mechanisms of creativity, how a grapefruit-sized heap of meat crackling with electricity manages to be so outrageously creative.

The Case Against Free Will What a Quiet Revolution in Psychology has Revealed about How Behaviour is Determined

Worldmaking: Psychology and the Ideology of Creativity

David Lieberman, University of Stirling, UK

Michael Hanchett Hanson, Teachers College, Columbia University, USA 'To understand the psychology of creativity one needs to understand first the history and social contexts in which the study of creativity originated. Michael Hanchett Hanson's book offers us an invaluable, scholarly reading of creativity as a powerful ideology. As masterfully shown here, this ideology is both intelligible by yesterday's ways of worldmaking and calls for a deep reflection on the role and function of creativity for tomorrow's worldin-the-making.' - Vlad Petre Glăveanu, Associate Professor, Aalborg University, Denmark, Editor, Europe's Journal of Psychology, author of Thinking Through Culture and Creativity: An Integrative Model Michael Hanchett Hanson weaves together the history of the development of the psychological concepts of creativity with social constructivist views of power dynamics and pragmatic insights. He provides an engaging, thought-provoking analysis to interest anyone involved with creativity, from psychologists and educators to artists and philosophers.

Leibniz, Husserl and the Brain

Joseph Neisser, Neisser College, USA

Norman Sieroka, ETH Zurich, Switzerland

Can neuroscience help explain the first-person perspective? The Science of Subjectivity delves into the nature of experience, arguing that unconscious subjectivity is a reality. Neisser identifies the biological roots of the first-person, showing how ancient systems of animal navigation enable creatures like us to cope with our worldly concerns.

This book is about structural relations between phenomenological and neurophysiological aspects of consciousness and time. Focusing on auditory perception and making new and updated use of Leibniz and Husserl, it investigates the transition from unconscious to conscious states, especially with regard to the constitution of phenomenal time.

PHILOSOPHY OF RELIGION The Ethics of Detachment in Santayana’s Philosophy


Kierkegaard and the Refusal of Transcendence Steven Shakespeare, Theology, Philosophy and Religious Studies Department at Liverpool Hope University, UK 'One of the rising stars in the new generation of theologians.... This book is an eloquent, meticulously document, well-argued reading of Kierkegaard as a theologian espousing the transformative power of the immanent life of God in the world... [this is] a must-read.' - John D. Caputo, Thomas J. Watson Professor of Religion Emeritus, Syracuse University, USA, and David R. Cook Professor of Philosophy Emeritus, Villanova University, USA

Michael Brodrick, Miami University, USA Knowing that we are finite, how can we live to the fullest? Philosopher George Santayana suggested 'spirituality' enables us to enjoy what we have. This book clarifies and extends Santayana's account of spirituality, while suggesting how the detachment of spirituality can relieve human suffering, enrich our lives, and make us better human beings. Contents: Introduction * 1. Ultimate Value in Psychology * 2. Spirituality and Religion * 3. An Ontology for Spirituality * 4. The Outer Structure and the Inner Nature of Spirituality * 5. Santayana and Schopenhauer * 6. A Philosophical Defense of Spirituality * 7. Spirituality and Human Finitude * Bibliography * Index

Kierkegaard and the Refusal of Transcendence challenges the standard view that Kierkegaard's God is infinitely other than the world. It argues that his work immerses us in the paradoxical nature of existence itself, and opposes any flight into another world.

A Non-Philosophical Theory of Nature Ecologies of Thought

Now available in paperback

Anthony Paul Smith, Religion Department, La Salle University, USA ‘Ecology is often the object of overly simple and inadequate philosophies; the revision of our naturalist and philosophical concepts should, however, go together. This is the aim of Anthony Paul Smith's investigation which makes use of the 'non-philosophical' hypothesis so as to bring these new relations between nature and thought up to date.’ - François Laruelle, Professor Emeritus, Contemporary Philosophy, University of Paris X: Ouest-Nanterre-La Défense, France Utilizing François Laruelle's ‘non-philosophical’ method, Smith constructs a unified theory of philosophical theology and ecology by challenging environmental philosophy and theology, claiming that and engagement with scientific ecology can radically change the standard metaphysics of nature, as well as ethical problems related to ‘the natural’.

David Kreps, Salford University, UK 'This is no ordinary introduction to Henri Bergson. What David Kreps' excellent study gives us is Bergson, complexe: first, because there is no simple way to take (or leave) Bergson's ideas – his thought of durée, élan, and 'multiplicity' demands the most subtle and nuanced reading to give them their full justice; and second, because only by intertwining his ideas with the most up-to-date research in systems thinking, complexity theory, and poststructuralism can we begin to understand their absolute contemporaneity. Kreps' work does all this and more – it gives us the Bergson we need for today.' - John Mullarkey, author of Bergson and Philosophy

The authors thoroughly demonstrate how deeply misleading our conventional phenomenology of moral agency is as ordinarily applied to climate change and suggest positive strategies for tackling moral disengagement while time remains.' - Henry Shue, University of Oxford, UK This book discusses the agency and responsibility of individuals in climate change, and argues that these are underemphasized, enabling individuals to maintain their consumptive lifestyles without having to accept moral responsibility for their luxury emissions.

The Big Bang and God An Astro-Theology Theodore Walker Jr., Southern Methodist University, USA, Chandra Wickramasinghe, University of Buckingham, UK ‘Any book that builds bridges between the cosmologist Fred Hoyle and the process philosopher Charles Hartshorne is sure to prove valuable to the modern-day revival of natural theology.

Felicity Callard, Durham University, UK, Des Fitzgerald, Durham University, UK 'Interdisciplinarity, more than a hype and less than a solution, is a landscape with peaks and creeks, highs and lows.

The result is truly valuable, for every interdisciplinary endeavour.' - Professor Andreas Roepstorff, Director, Interacting Minds Centre, Aarhus University, Denmark This book offers a provocative account of interdisciplinary research across the neurosciences, social sciences and humanities. Rooting itself in the authors' own experiences, the book establishes a radical agenda for collaboration across these disciplines. This book is open access under a CC-BY license.

Faith, Secularism, and Humanitarian Engagement Finding the Place of Religion in the Support of Displaced Communities Alastair Ager, Columbia University, USA, Joey Ager, San Diego Organizing Project, USA 'Must humanitarian organizations be secular? Yes, argue the authors of this insightful, timely, and powerfully argued book, but only if the secular is re-defined. It can no longer be seen as the ultimate epistemic standpoint, surveying from above the bewildering array of religious outlooks. We need a secularism which recognizes dilemmas and a global humanitarianism which recognizes that these dilemmas can only be resolved in partnership and exchange with the local. The authors explore this dialogical alternative in a penetrating and convincing style.' - Charles Taylor, Professor Emeritus, McGill University, Canada, and author of A Secular Age Strengthening local humanitarian engagement demands not only rethinking dominant understandings of religion, but also revisiting the principles and practices of humanitarianism. This book articulates key aspects of the 'transborder discourse' necessary for humanitarian dialogue in the 21st century.

Religious Resistance to Neoliberalism Womanist and Black Feminist Perspectives Keri Day, Brite Divinity School, USA 'Keri Day insightfully probes the role of religion in neoliberalism, incorporating a fresh, exciting, politicized understanding of the erotic. Trenchant critiques of neoliberalism foreground some of the most socioeconomically vulnerable populations. US womanist and black feminist ideas alongside European theorists productively aid Day's reenvisioning of human flourishing in economic life. Concrete examples and clarity of writing make this a great text for the classroom.' - Traci C.

European Social Movements and Muslim Activism Another World but with Whom? Timothy Peace, University of Stirling, UK "In this rich study, Timothy Peace bridges two fields of research: social movements and the politics of religion. His book provides an original analysis of the successes (and failures) of the participation of Muslim activists in the protest campaigns of the Global Justice Movement. Comparing two classical cases, France and Great Britain, his work goes beyond existing knowledge of the effects of citizenship regimes on political participation by looking at the mechanisms that explain the different reactions of social movements when faced with diversity. This is an important contribution to social movement studies." - Professor Della Porta, European University Institute, Italy How do progressive social movements deal with religious pluralism? In this book, Timothy Peace uses the example of the alter-globalisation movement to explain why social movement leaders in Britain and France reacted so differently to the emergence of Muslim activism.

Justice with Borders Oliviero Angeli, Department of Political Science, University of Dresden, Germany 'This rigorously argued innovative book discusses the moral significance of territory. Using sharp analytic tools Dr. Angeli exposes mercilessly the fallacies in the traditional treatment of issues including cosmopolitanism and self-determination. Under his view moral cosmopolitanism does not preclude territorial rights. This book challenges the most entrenched beliefs of contemporary political theorists and provides an original and a compelling alternative which will greatly influence contemporary discourse concerning the international order.' – Alon Harel, The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel Territorial rights are often perceived to create barriers and discriminate against the poor. This study challenges that notion by re-examining the cosmopolitan understanding of territory. It addresses issues from the right to vote, the right to exclude others to the legitimacy of territorial boundaries and the exploitation of natural resources.

Challenging the Phenomena of Technology Matt Hayler, University of Birmingham, UK This book investigates what 'technology' is, what it helps us to do, and what it forces us to consider about our experience of being in the world.

A Theory of Truces Nir Eisikovits, Department of Philosophy, Suffolk University, Boston, USA 'In A Theory of Truces, Nir Eisikovits aims to revive interest in the often ignored and disparaged idea of a truce. Against the assumption that war and peace are the only options, he shows why truces are often better than continued warfare or seeking peace under impossible circumstances. Through careful analysis, interesting discussions of a variety of thinkers, and insightful case studies, Professor Eisikovits shows how truces can save lives and diminish hostilities when peace is unattainable'. - Stephen Nathanson, Emeritus Professor of Philosophy at Northeastern University, USA, and author of Terrorism and the Ethics of War This book argues that understanding truces is crucial for our ability to wind down wars. We have paid too much attention to the idea of permanent peace, yet few conflicts end in this way. The book describes how truce makers think, which truces can be morally justified and provides a philosophical history of truce making in the Western tradition. Contents: Introduction * 1.

Michael Byron, Kent State University, USA 'An insightful book that challenges the widespread claim that Hobbesian subjects obey the sovereign out of fear of punishment. Instead, Michael Byron convincingly develops the idea that for Hobbes, good subjects obey the law 'sincerely from the heart'.

Ross Honeywill, University of Tasmania, Tasmanian School of Business & Economics, Australia 'This book explores the potential for evil in men and traces its various manifestations in cultural texts, social systems, and everyday life. Ross Honeywill provides an excellent analysis of theoretical concepts and social processes that have been crucial to the development of Western culture. His discussion of contemporary culture is both revealing and convincing, and fully supports the concluding claim that it is in the culture of knowledge that the potential for men to 'exercise true, fully agentic morality' should be located.' - Katarzyna Więckowska, Nicolaus Copernicus University, Poland This book reveals destructive masculinity as the social, political, and economic problem of our age. It not only diagnoses destructive masculinity, but also reveals a possible way forward–a prognosis for society to surpass the annihilative potential that resides in masculinity.

POLITICAL AND SOCIAL PHILOSOPHY The Non-Sovereign Self, Responsibility, and Otherness Hannah Arendt, Judith Butler, and Stanley Cavell on Moral Philosophy and Political Agency Rosine Kelz, Independent researcher and translator, USA 'I would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in questions pertaining to identity, agency and ethics from a global politics perspective. This book uniquely situates us in conversation with key thinkers Arendt, Butler and Cavell and, from this vantage point, asks us to engage with these questions anew - specifically towards the development of a 'non-sovereign self.' Towards this end, I was particularly fascinated by Kelz's thought-provoking critique of Butler in terms of anthropocentrism and, following from this, Kelz's development of a framework that urges us to revisit the ways we conceptualise our relations with Others, including non-human lives.' –Tina Managhan, Senior Lecturer in International Relations, Oxford Brookes University, UK Drawing on Hannah Arendt, Judith Butler and Stanley Cavell, this book addresses contemporary theoretical and political debates in a broader comparative perspective and rearticulates the relationship between ethics and politics by highlighting those who are currently excluded from our notions of political community.

Radical Intellectuals and the Subversion of Progressive Politics The Betrayal of Politics Edited by Gregory Smulewicz-Zucker, Baruch College, USA, Michael J. Thompson, William Paterson University, USA 'Radical Intellectuals and the Subversion of Progressive Politics is a wonderful and long overdue book.

These discrete studies, and the book as a whole, should be core reading both for those interested in the thinkers and trends the chapters examine and for anyone interested seriously in left theory and practice and the intellectual history of the last generation of academic leftism.' - Adolph Reed, Jr., Professor of Political Science, University of Pennsylvania, USA A collection of essays calling into question the ideas of the new radicalism in contemporary political theory.

Religion in Diaspora Cultures of Citizenship Edited by Jane Garnett, University of Oxford, UK, Sondra L. Hausner, University of Oxford, UK 'The need for boldly comparative and theoretically sophisticated work on diasporas has become increasingly obvious in recent years.

Women’s Bodies as Battlefield Christian Theology and the Global War on Women Susan Brooks Thistlethwaite, Chicago Theological Seminary, USA ‘Reverend Thistlethwaite makes an important contribution to the current debate on the wars we are waging and how they affect violence against women. Her treatment of Christian notions of ‘just war’ makes this essential reading for those who are motivated by Jesus' words: 'Blessed are the peacemakers.'‘ - Jimmy Carter, 39th President if the United States, Co-Founder of The Carter Center Christian theology has been complicit in justifying the war on women, but it also has resources to help finally declare peace in the war on women.

Reading, Feminism, and Spirituality

Reading Mary Alongside Indian Surrogate Mothers

Troubling the Waves Dawn Llewellyn, University of Chester, UK 'Through an engaging approach that moves beyond imagined readers and assumptions about Christian and post-Christian feminism, Reading, Spirituality, and Feminism: Troubling the Waves demonstrates how women are actively constructing feminist spirituality through their diverse reading practices. By focusing on women's reading strategies, Llewellyn challenges typical conceptions of feminism, exposes the limits of feminist theologians' work, and highlights the possibilities for connection across generational, disciplinary, and religious divides.' - Lynn S. Neal, Associate Professor of Religion, Wake Forest University, USA and author of Romancing God: Evangelical Women and Inspirational Fiction

Violent Love, Oppressive Liberation, and Infancy Narratives Sharon Jacob, Luther College, USA 'Sharon Jacob's book on Indian surrogate mothers and Mary's conception through the Holy Spirit in Matthew's and Luke's Gospel shows how biblical texts from the first century and a complex global problem of the twenty-first century can shed light on each other. After reading this book, I will never be able to read the birth narratives of the Gospels without thinking of Jacob's provocative questions about these passages.' - Tat-siong Benny Liew, Class of 1956 Professor in New Testament Studies, College of the Holy Cross, USA This book attempts to read the character of Mary in the infancy narratives of Luke and Matthew alongside the lives of experiences of the Indian surrogate mother living a postcolonial India. Reading Mary through these lenses helps us see this mother and her actions in a more ambivalent light, as a mother whose love is both violent and altruistic. Contents: Introduction * 1.

Socrates and Diotima Sexuality, Religion, and the Nature of Divinity Andrea Nye, University of Wisconsin-Whitewater, USA 'This book stands to significantly alter the scholarly conversation about Diotima particularly and the role of the feminine in culture more generally.' Anne-Marie Schultz, Professor of Philosophy, Baylor University, USA Few women's voices have survived from the antiquity period, but evidence shows that, especially in the area of religion, women were influential in Greek culture.

Kenneth Wilson, College of Social Sciences, the University of Birmingham,UK ‘This book, while rooted in a theological conception of gratitude, relates it helpfully to two other current discourses: the recent psychological/philosophical discourse on gratitude and the recent discourse on professionalism, professional practice, and professional virtues. This is a worthwhile enterprise, cleverly executed by the author. A thoughtprovoking and inspiring book.’ - Kristján Kristjánsson, Professor of Character Education and Virtue Ethics, Jubilee Centre for Character and Virtues, University of Birmingham, UK This book asserts that gratitude for God's gift of creation grounds the insight of positive psychology that grateful persons act pro-socially. Kenneth Wilson posits that a sense of gratitude encourages sacrificial service and reveals all behavior to have at heart an essential moral quality. Contents: 1. Introduction * 2.

Neslihan Cevik, Institute for Advanced Studies in Culture, University of Virginia, USA 'Neslihan Cevik has written a ground-breaking book on the social, religious, and political transformation of Islam in contemporary Turkey.

Edited by Adis Duderija, University Malaya, Malaysia


Aroosa Kanwal, International Islamic University, Pakistan 'This book identifies and engages with a topic of prime importance, namely Pakistani Muslims' post-9/11 literary production. Given that Malala Yousafzai was recently co-awarded the Nobel Peace Prize to great acclaim from the world and mixed feelings from many Pakistanis, few can doubt that there is much at stake in the images produced of Islam by cultural, media, and marketing forces. Aroosa Kanwal effectively uses writers' journalism to illuminate their fictional works, and is a consummate reader of both texts and theories. Today's Pakistani authors are 'writing back' to dominant discourses in important ways, and Kanwal is one of the best emerging scholars exploring their work.' — Claire Chambers, University of York, UK This book focuses on the way that notions of home and identity have changed for Muslims as a result of international 'war on terror' rhetoric. It uniquely links the post9/11 stereotyping of Muslims and Islam in the West to the roots of current jihadism and the resurgence of ethnocentrism within the subcontinent and beyond.

Same God, Other god Judaism, Hinduism, and the Problem of Idolatry Alon Goshen-Gottstein, The Elijah Interfaith Institute, Israel 'Alon Goshen-Gottstein has provided us with a masterful exploration of the status of Hinduism as Avoda Zara (idolatry) and has opened up the category of Avoda Zara for deep interrogation. This is a much needed exercise in a global age and one that will be helpful to Jewish seekers, halachists, and theologians, as they reflect on world religions as a whole, and on Hinduism in particular.' - Rabbi Daniel Sperber, Professor of Talmud, Bar Ilan University, Israel Jews often consider Hinduism to be Avoda Zara, idolatry, due to its worship of images and multiple gods.

A Comparative Study of Religion and Communism in Eurasia

Edited by Joerg Rieger, Perkins School of Theology, Southern Methodist University, USA, Edward Waggoner, Brite Divinity School, USA 'From its birth, New Materialism has fostered intense attention and debate: is it materialist, is it new, can it produce a more radical theology? Here, chapters lock horns over the heart and bodies of the New Materialist program, emphasizing the topics of religion and activism. The authors, undercutting established dualisms, offer both advocacy and critical dialogue. This is an important contribution to this new school of thought.' - Philip Clayton, Claremont School of Theology, USA

Atheist Secularism and Its Discontents takes a comparative approach to understanding religion under communism, arguing that communism was integral to the global experience of secularism.

Religion and Aesthetic Experience in Joyce and Yeats

The Gnostic Paradigm Forms of Knowing in English Literature of the Late Middle Ages

Tudor Balinisteanu, University of Suceava, Romania

Natanela Elias, Beit Berl College, Israel 'Natanela Elias's The Gnostic Paradigm illuminates a little understood but often felt dimension of late medieval literature. Gnosticism is essential to Western culture and its shadow must be grasped by whoever seeks historical self-understanding. Through careful examination of the spectral gnostic presence in Middle-English texts, this study reveals the wisdom of its hidden light, suggesting how much darker our world would be without it.' - Nicola Masciandaro, Professor of English, Brooklyn College, CUNY, USA

This monograph is based on archival research and close readings of James Joyce's and W. B. Yeats's poetics and political aesthetics. Georges Sorel's theory of social myth is used as a starting point for exploring the ways in which the experience of art can be seen as a form of religious experience.

No study has been carried out examining the gnostic undercurrents in medieval England.

LITERATURE AND RELIGION Mourning and Mysticism in First World War Literature and Beyond

Other British Voices

Grappling with Ghosts

Timothy Whelan, Georgia Southern University, USA ‘Here is a case study in female literary tradition: the poems, letters, and other writings of a highly talented, multi-generational group of provincial, dissenting women friends. Such groups seldom leave enduring archives, and even feminist historians have often missed material lacking canonized names or links to dominant metropolitan, gentry, or Anglican culture. These women wrote, circulated their writing, and commented on each others' work without false modesty and with a confident sense of its value. They remain eminently readable. This study of their interconnections reshapes our understanding of ordinary pre-Victorian women's social and intellectual lives.’ -Isobel Grundy, Professor Emeritus in the Department of English and Film Studies, University of Alberta, Canada

George M. Johnson, Thompson Rivers University, Canada 'Johnson uses attachment theory and object relations theory sensitively to explore the ways in which early responses to separation and loss influence writers' visions of art. The use of contemporary psychoanalytic theory is particularly valuable when exploring the literary and cultural implications of bereavement following World War One. To my knowledge, Johnson's book may well be the first to take this approach…. Johnson writes clearly and gracefully...' — Jeffrey Berman, Professor of English, University at Albany, SUNY This book traces how iconic writers - including Arthur Conan Doyle, J.M. Barrie, Rudyard Kipling, Virginia Woolf, Wilfred Owen, and Aldous Huxley - shaped their response to the loss of loved ones in the First World War through their embrace of mysticism.

The Humanities, Higher Education, and Academic Freedom Three Necessary Arguments Michael Bérubé, Pennsylvania State University, USA, Jennifer Ruth, Portland State University, USA 'Finally, a book that defends the humanities not with violins but rather by linking them to the status of contingent labor in the academy.' — Leonard Cassuto, Professor of English, Fordham University, and columnist for The Chronicle of Higher Education This book is a lively, passionate defence of contemporary work in the humanities, and, beyond that, of the university system that makes such work possible.
