AFRICAN PHILOSOPHY: CRITICAL PERSPECTIVES AND GLOBAL DIALOGUE Uchenna B. Okeja (Goethe University Frankfurt) and Bruce B. Janz (University of Central Florida)

By merging the critical and global dimensions of thought pertaining to important topics in African philosophy, this series beams the lights and rigour of philosophical analysis on topical as well as classical questions reflective of the African and African diaspora search for meaning.

AMERICAN PHILOSOPHY SERIES John J. Kaag (University of Massachusetts Lowell)

The volumes in this series seek to reframe the American canon’s primary figures; reclaim and discover figures from the outskirts of the American philosophical tradition; address contemporary issues using the resources of classical American pragmatism and neo-pragmatism; or make meaningful interventions in contemporary epistemology, metaphysics, and ethical theory.

CONTEMPORARY WHITEHEAD STUDIES Roland Faber (Claremont School of Theology and Claremont Graduate University) and Brian G. Henning (Gonzaga University)

This interdisciplinary book series encourages innovative approaches to Whitehead studies, exploring connections between Whitehead’s pluralistic impulses and Continental philosophy, pragmatism, analytic philosophy, Eastern philosophy, and the sciences, and seeking to address contemporary problems facing humanity.

Sharon Labrot Crasnow (Norco College) and Joanne Beil Waugh (University of South Florida)

This series invites original works in contemporary philosophical feminism that examine current practices, actual cases, and historical episodes of discrimination in which gender has intersected with systems of oppression, such as feminism and disability; women, animals, and emotion; extended cognition and feminism; women and depression; motherhood; and the new materialist feminism.

PHILOSOPHY AND CULTURAL IDENTITY Michael Krausz (Bryn Mawr College) and Andreea Deciu Ritivoi (Carnegie Mellon University)

This series encourages new scholarship in cross-cultural philosophy, exploring topics such as cultural memory, cultural membership, cultural obligations, cross-cultural experience, personal identity, single and multiple identities, single and multiple selves, and cosmopolitanism.   

PHILOSOPHY OF CHILDHOOD Peter R. Costello (Providence College)

What is a child? How do children’s ways of knowing emerge in their educational and family life? How do children’s literature, athletics, and education articulate a sense of beauty or wonder that are particularly unique? This series examines questions of metaphysics, epistemology, ethics, and aesthetics as they pertain to the meaningfulness of childhood.

PHILOSOPHY OF POPULAR CULTURE Mark T. Conard (Marymount Manhattan College)

This series affirms both that that texts in popular culture are worthy of philosophical analysis and that philosophical thinking can enrich our everyday lives. The works investigate the philosophical underpinnings, or do a philosophical analysis, of a subject in popular culture, such as a particular genre, filmmaker, or television show.

SEDATION, SUICIDE, AND THE LIMITS OF ETHICS

THE ETHICS OF NATURE AND THE NATURE OF ETHICS

By James A. Dunson III, Xavier University of Louisiana

“Sedation, Suicide, and the Limits of Ethics is a highly readable book about an inherently wrenching subject. Dunson gives pride of place to the patient’s own perspective on end-of-life concerns, and he offers a rigorous but also refreshingly humane argument for a novel position in debates that concern us all. Because of its clarity and warmth of tone, Dunson’s book will be accessible to novices. And because of the force of his argument, the book will be challenging to experts in the field.” —Eric Wilson, Georgia State University

George Yancy (Emory University)

This series centers upon the concept of race, a concept that continues to have very profound contemporary implications. Philosophers and other philosophically minded scholars critically engage race and the process of racialisation as a deeply embodied, existential, political, social, and historical phenomenon.

POSTPHENOMENOLOGY AND THE PHILOSOPHY OF TECHNOLOGY Robert Rosenberger (Georgia Institute of Technology), Don Ihde (Stony Brook University, Emeritus), and Peter-Paul Verbeek (University of Twente)

As technologies continue to advance, they continue to make fundamental changes to our lives. This series encourages work in the field of philosophy of technology in general, and “postphenomenology” in particular. The former applies insights from the history of philosophy to current issues in technology, while postphenomenology analyses human relationships with technologies.

REVOLUTIONARY BIOETHICS Rachel Haliburton (University of Sudbury)

The books in this series will explore bioethical theory and practice through the frameworks provided by feminist ethics, narrative ethics, and virtue ethics, challenging the assumptions of mainstream bioethics. Its goal is to investigate what a transformed bioethics—one that is unafraid to explore new theoretical approaches, and to examine and critique current bioethical practices—might look like.

Edited by Gary Keogh, formerly University of Manchester

In this book, James Dunson explores end-of-life ethics including physicianassisted suicide (PAS) and continuous sedation until death. He argues that ethical debates currently ignore the experience of the dying patient in favor of policy creation and proposes that the dying experience should instead be prioritized and used to inform policy. 2017 • 150 pages 978-0-7391-9921-3 • $85.00 / £54.95 • Hardback 978-0-7391-9922-0 • $80.00 / £52.95 • eBook

“This book is not just one more volume on the ethics of nature and the environment but is a profound philosophical and theological mining of selected classical and contemporary thinkers’ relevance for a truly transdisciplinary discourse about the entanglement of our images of nature and morality. Aristotle, Luther, Hegel, Nietzsche, Darwin, Freud, and Murdoch meet each other and the reader in a demanding, rich, and thought-provoking dialogue on naturalism, artificiality, virtue, evolution, and the painfully gripping question of how to cope with the ‘atmosfear’ in times of anthropogenic climate and weather change.” —Sigurd Bergmann, Norwegian University of Science and Technology This volume explores questions that emerge from considering the relationship between nature and ethics through philosophical, theological, ethical, and environmental lenses. It examines the nature (understood as essence or character) of ethics itself and whether nature (understood as natural world) has embedded in it a moral code, as well as examining how particular ethical/theological worldviews influence our treatment of nature. 2017 • 172 pages 978-1-4985-4434-4 • $90.00 / £60.00 • Hardback 978-1-4985-4435-1 • $85.00 / £54.95 • eBook

STUDIES IN COMPARATIVE PHILOSOPHY AND RELIGION Douglas Allen (University of Maine)

This series is based on the view that significant and creative future studies in philosophy and religious studies will be informed by comparative research. Exhibiting highly focused research and theoretical innovation, these original studies emphasise, in particular, aspects of contemporary and classical Asian philosophy and its relationship to Western thought.

STUDIES IN THE PHILOSOPHY OF SPORT Shawn E. Klein (Arizona State University)

This series inquires into the nature, importance, and qualities of sport and related activities, bringing innovative methods and different questions to the standard issues in the philosophy of sport. The series encourages new voices, questions, and methods for the philosophic study of sport.

STUDIES IN THE THOUGHT OF PAUL RICOEUR Greg S. Johnson (Pacific Lutheran University) and Dan R. Stiver (Hardin-Simmons University)

This series develops historical connections to Ricoeur’s thought, extends Ricoeur’s dialogue with contemporary thinkers representing a variety of disciplines, and utilises Ricoeur to address future prospects in philosophy and other fields, believing that his thought matters for how we actually engage in the many dimensions that constitute lived existence.

TEXTURES: PHILOSOPHY/ LITERATURE/ CULTURE John William Phillips (National University of Singapore)

This series addresses questions of cultural meaning and cultural difference, aesthetic experience and cultural studies while focusing on new theoretical directions in these fields.Volumes emphasise the intersections between disciplinary practices and the ways in which these differences can be articulated theoretically and philosophically.

TOPOSOPHIA: SUSTAINABILITY, DWELLING, DESIGN

New ADDRESSING ABLEISM Philosophical Questions via Disability Studies By Jennifer Scuro, College of New Rochelle

“Addressing Ableism is a transformative work. The book provides a detailed and rigorous archaeology of contemporary ableism and compellingly argues for the ethical imperative to resist it. It provides a powerful framework for such resistance in not only in its content but also its form. Its fusion of philosophical analysis with memoir and social critique make it both intellectually and emotionally affecting, and Scuro’s dialogue with Lydia Brown and Devonya Havis models the kinds of conversations she hopes to provoke. This book is a major contribution to disability studies, and its insights expand the customary boundaries of the field.” — Harold Braswell, St. Louis University By explicating concepts like experience, diagnosis, precariousness, and prosthesis, Scuro maps out the institutionalized forms of ableism and provides crucial insights into how we might revise our intentions for the sake of a less ableist world. 2017 • 290 pages 978-1-4985-4074-2 • $105.00 / £70.00 • Hardback 978-1-4985-4075-9 • $99.00 / £65.00 • eBook

New ECOCULTURAL ETHICS Critical Essays

Edited by Rayson K. Alex, Birla Institute of Technology and Sciences Pilani, K.K. Birla Goa Campus; S. Susan Deborah, M. E. S. College of Arts & Commerce; Reena Cheruvalath, Birla Institute of Technology and Sciences Pilani, K. K. Birla Goa campus; and Gyan Prakash, Indian Institute of Technology (ISM) Dhanbad.

The book offers twelve cases of ethics relating to ecology and culture. The cases presented are written by eminent scholars from India, USA, Canada, and Egypt. Employing various ecocritical frameworks, the writers have tried to understand and analyse literary, cinematic, and other cultural texts and contexts. The volume argues that the principles of ethics are as dynamic as culture and nature. Any ecological perspectives/issues/conditions cannot be separated from their cultural contexts and thus need a culture-specific scrutiny to understand the ethics of ecoculture.

Robert Mugerauer (University of Washington) and Brian Treanor (Loyola Marymount University)

This series, dedicated to the interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary study of place, welcomes contributions from any discipline as long as the author engages a “geographical turn,” emphasising the place/spatial component, and a “philosophical turn,” broadly conceived. WWW.ROWMAN.COM/LEXINGTON

Evolutionary Perspectives on Contemporary Normative and Metaethical Theories

By Leo Stan, independent scholar

By Jeff Diamond, independent scholar

“This is an outstanding study that explores Kierkegaard’s analyses of different versions of the other. He thus allows Kierkegaard to take his rightful place as an important forerunner of the tradition of heterology that runs from Rosenzweig to Levinas. While this topic has at times been touched upon in the literature, it has never been explored with the acuity and depth of analysis of Stan’s investigation. This work will give both students and scholars a greater appreciation for Kierkegaard’s views on ethics, psychology, personal identity, and religion.” —Jon Stewart, Harvard University

New CONSCIOUSNESS AND FREEDOM The Inseparability of Thinking and Doing

By Donald A. Crosby, emeritus, Colorado State University

“This book proposes an illuminating and exciting organismic alternative to mechanistic materialism—a metaphysics of emergent matter that permits a robust account of consciousness as evolutionarily adaptive and of freedom without dualistic presuppositions. Crosby succeeds brilliantly in making this account more plausible than the mechanistic materialist theories that consume the bulk of the profession’s and the public’s attention. Without doubt, this work makes a significant contribution to the field.” —Andrew Irvine, Maryville College 2017 • 152 pages 978-1-4985-3890-9 • $90.00 / £60.00 • Hardback 978-1-4985-3891-6 • $85.00 / £54.95 • eBook

By Raymond J. McKoski, John Marshall Law School

Judges in Street Hardbackes provides a historical, theoretical, and practical analysis of the ethical restrictions placed on the public lives of judges. The State’s interest in maintaining an independent and impartial judiciary is considered against a judge’s right to engage in educational, religious, charitable, civic, and professional activities.

“This is a superb study of the great Renaissance writers on the difficult art of presenting oneself in a pleasing way without ceasing to be true to oneself.” —James Tully, University of Victoria

By John Mizzoni, Neumann University

“This ambitious, interdisciplinary work explains how evolutionary ethics might elucidate recent philosophical debates over alternative normative and metaethical theories. The 11 main chapters are organized into two parts: ‘Evolution and Metaethics’ examines error theory, expressivism, moral relativism, and moral realism; ‘Evolution and Normative Ethics’ takes up virtue ethics, natural law, social contracts, deontology, utilitarianism, and care ethics…. The book provides a good, broad-based introduction to the interface between moral theory and evolutionary ethics…. Recommended.”

“There has always been a tension between honesty and agreeableness. When does innocently trying to please others turn into lying and unethical manipulation? This volume brings out the answers of Machiavelli, Erasmus, More, and Montaigne, four of the most original thinkers of the Renaissance. This study provides food for thought for our own negotiation of the proper balance, sometimes delicate and hard to pin down.” —John Christian Laursen, University of California, Riverside 2017 • 236 pages 978-1-4985-4889-2 • $100.00 / £70.00 • Hardback 978-1-4985-4890-8 • $95.00 / £65.00 • eBook

HOW SUPERHEROES MODEL COMMUNITY Philosophically, Communicatively, Relationally By Nathan Miczo, Western Illinois University

“In How Superheroes Model Community, Nathan Miczo extends the reading of superheroes by linking them with the broad discipline of communication studies. He provides a clear argument that superheroes not only are protectors of communities but should also be read as communities themselves. They also offer critical insight into how relationships are created and maintained through that notion of community.” —Norma Jones, Kent State University “Miczo presents unique observations about the superhero genre through the application of communication studies. Comic book events and blockbuster films are analyzed alongside philosophers and theorists to yield one of the most thought-provoking texts on the superhero genre. Miczo provides a deeper understanding of both complex concepts and popular entertainment in How Superheroes Model Community.” —Joseph J.

New KNOWING MORAL TRUTH A Theory of Metaethics and Moral Knowledge By Christopher B. Kulp, Santa Clara University

ADAM FERGUSON AND ETHICAL INTEGRITY The Man and His Prescriptions for the Moral Life By Jack A. Hill, Texas Christian University

“A thoughtful and well-documented study of Ferguson as a moralist, searching for a path to virtue and happiness in a world of commercial self-interest, religious uncertainty, and threats to national security.” —Richard B. Sher, New Jersey Institute of Technology

This is a book on metaethics and moral epistemology asking two fundamental questions: Is there any such thing as (non-relative) moral truth?; and If there is such truth, how do we come into epistemic contact with it? Its animating idea is that we should take our ordinary, tutored moral judgments seriously—judgments typified by our conviction that it is clearly true that some acts, policies, social norms et al. are morally right or wrong, no matter when, where, or by whom they are performed. In order to provide a firm conceptual basis for such judgments, the book develops a theory of moral truth, based on a theory of moral facts. Building squarely on the metaethical theories developed, Kup argues for a non-empiricist theory of justified moral belief and knowledge. Pivotal to this project is a careful analysis of various forms of moral skepticism, or any conception of morality substantially at odds with the general contours of ordinary moral thinking. 2017 • 186 pages 978-1-4985-4702-4 • $90.00 / £60.00 • Hardback 978-1-4985-4703-1 • $85.00 / £54.95 • eBook

New THE BIOETHICS OF ENHANCEMENT

BUILDING THE MORAL COMMUNITY Radical Naturalism and Emergence

By David W. Chambers, University of the Pacific

Building the Moral Community demonstrates how very simple models of moral engagements based on natural, incomplete, value-laden frames of the world can lead to general moral progress for the human community. All moral behavior affects more than one person, which means that the moral community is more than the sum of the individuals included in it. David W. Chambers argues that there is no ethically detached and superior position from which to operate, and that such claims are focused on ethics, not on acting morally. Therefore, he cautions against mistaking theories of ethics composed on statements about what is good and right for actual moral behavior that moves broadly and inevitably toward a better world. 2016 • 364 pages 978-1-4985-2619-7 • $110.00 / £75.00 • Hardback 978-1-4985-2620-3 • $104.00 / £70.00 • eBook

Transhumanism, Disability, and Biopolitics By Melinda Hall, Stetson University

“Hall powerfully argues that disability underpins debates over genetic enhancement, and in turn these anchor contemporary bioethics, making disability, and questions over which lives are worth living, the fulcrum of bioethics. Bringing Foucault’s notion of biopower to bear on the transhumanist discourses of Julian Savulescu and Nick Bostrom, this book is a game changer, and a must read for anyone interested in enhancement literature, disability studies, or bioethics more generally. ” —Kelly Oliver,Vanderbilt University 2017 • 192 pages 978-1-4985-3348-5 • $80.00 / £52.95 • Hardback 978-1-4985-3349-2 • $76.00 / £49.95 • eBook

ONTIC ETHICS Exploring the Influence of Caring on Being By Hollis G. Wright, indendent scholar

Much has been written about how character affects action, but this book describes how actions and passions affect character ontologically. Wright identifies an independent, not culturally relative, source for the ethics of care in an ontology of the self. Ethical and aesthetic flourishing is therefore at once ontological flourishing of the largest, truest self. The book includes many illustrations of how behavior and attitudes have consequences not only for who, but for how much we are.

Reclaiming a Foundational Virtue

Marketing and Moral Storytelling

By Matthew Pianalto, Eastern Kentucky University

“Pianalto’s On Patience has filled a large gap in contemporary discussion of virtue ethics, lifted the notion of patience from its philosophical obscurity, and called attention to the importance of patience as a foundational virtue.... Pianalto has done a great service to virtue ethics by reclaiming the longneglected virtue of patience. His excellent book has thrust the virtue of patience to the foreground of the contemporary revival of virtue ethics, and will spark widespread philosophical interest in examining the nature of patience and its intricate relationship with other virtues that have long enjoyed the spotlight.” —CHOICE

THE MORAL RIGHTS OF ANIMALS

Edited by Mylan Engel Jr., Northern Illinois University, and Gary Lynn Comstock, North Carolina State University

“This excellent anthology grew out of a 2011 workshop on Tom Regan’s The Case for Animal Rights. It features essays which intersect with Regan’s views in some way. The authors largely defend the view that other animals have moral rights and those who don’t hold that we have significant obligations to other animals. The essays succeed at exploring, critiquing, and expanding upon Regan’s work in a way that is both rigorous and detailed, while accessible to those new to Regan or the animal rights literature.”

New in PaperBACK KIERKEGAARD AND THE PHILOSOPHY OF LOVE By Michael Strawser, University of Central Florida

“Power, prominence, or wealth can’t give real meaning to life—only love can. This is a vivid account of love and the story of how love becomes the lodestone of Kierkegaard’s varied and voluminous writing. Strawser shows how love stitches a self together and threads out to gently pull in friends and loved ones, giving verve and traction to a life.” —Edward F. Mooney, Syracuse University

“Once we cast aside the theologically-inspired notion that humans are discontinuous with the rest of the animal kingdom, we are better able to situate the phenomenon of free will as simply a biological adaptation. So argues Waller in a book manifesting his characteristic virtues of clarity, forcefulness, and verve. I urge anyone with even a passing interest in the free will debate to save space on their shelf for this original and provocative monograph.” —Mark Bernstein, Purdue University

PEDOPHILIA AND ADULT–CHILD SEX

ANIMAL PROPERTY RIGHTS

A Philosophical Analysis

A Theory of Habitat Rights for Wild Animals

By Stephen Kershnar, SUNY, Fredonia

“Kershnar¹s book is relevant to the ethics of interacting with children, and the ethics of sex with children. Maintaining that emotional reactions of disgust and knee-jerk appeals to intuition are not enough to ground normative judgment, Kershnar engages in a comprehensive philosophical discussion of various facets of adult-child sex. He provides plausible conceptual analyses of key concepts, usefully distinguishes between various kinds of adult-child, and advances thoughtful answers to the questions of whether and when adultchild sex is an instance of mental illness, wrong action, or bad character.” —Thaddeus Metz, University of Johannesburg

A Feminist Approach to Understanding Women’s Oppression-Perpetuating Choices By Shay Welch, Spelman College

“Existential Eroticism is a compelling contribution to feminist philosophy. It attempts to resolve important issues about complicity under systemic conditions of disadvantage under patriarchy and grapples with the uncomfortable territory of intra-group blame and resentment, while providing a constructive way forward in intra-group forgiveness. Welch successfully achieves her goal of providing a nuanced account in which women living in some of the most desperate scenarios of existential eroticism are not simply to be understood as victims or dupes, but in fact as agents.”

Our Inescapable In-between

By Michael C. Brannigan, College of Saint Rose

“This intensely moving account not only teaches us invaluable lessons regarding our societal ability to respond to disaster but, in providing extraordinary insights into the meaning of vulnerability and suffering, it also demonstrates the absolute necessity of cultivating interpersonal face-toface connectedness and community in order to heal—a lesson that is particularly important in our individualistic, technology-saturated, digital culture.” —S. Kay Toombs, Baylor University

“Hopkins’ book bridges the gap between the reality construction empirical work done that is typical of mass media research and the philosophical scholarship about popular culture by offering a cogent analysis of advertising from a philosophical perspective. Through a phenomenological reading of commercial narratives the book attempts—and often succeeds—in revealing the moralist values that are intentionally hidden in promotional texts. I recommend this book without reservations.” —Amir Hetsroni, Ariel University

By Mike W. Martin, Chapman University

This is a philosophical study of moral themes in memoirs. It explores how memoirists present and defend perspectives on good lives. Particular attention is paid to the interplay of the virtues, including their interplay with additional (nonmoral) types of values in good lives. More generally, it explores the relevance of memoir to moral philosophy, and in turn how moral philosophy enters into elucidating and critiquing memoirs.

LABOR AND GLOBAL JUSTICE Essays on the Ethics of Labor Practices under Globalization

Edited by Mary C. Rawlinson, Stony Brook University; Wim Vandekerckhove, University of Greenwich; Ronald M. S. Commers, emeritus, Ghent University; and Tim R. Johnston, Independent Scholar

“This collection raises important questions about the position of labor in a globalized world. Without strong global trade unions, what options do we have for protecting the rights of workers? Are there global mechanisms that can be invoked to protect the weak and vulnerable? These essays stimulate further discussion of this urgent, often neglected, issue.” —Peter Singer, Princeton University

New in PaperBACK PHILOSOPHY OF COMMUNICATION ETHICS Alterity and the Other

Edited by Ronald C. Arnett and Patricia Arneson, both Duquesne University

Philosophy of Communication Ethics is a unique and timely contribution to the study of communication ethics. This series of essays articulates unequivocally the intimate connection between philosophy of communication and communication ethics. This scholarly volume assumes that there is a multiplicity of communication ethics. What distinguishes one communication ethic from another is the philosophy of communication in which a particular ethic is grounded.

ORDER ETHICS OR MORAL SURPLUS What Holds a Society Together?

By Christoph Luetge, Technische Universität München

“This is a well-written, refreshing, and well-argued proposal of order ethics as a comprehensive ethical theory that represents an alternative to moral surplus theories. The critical edge of the book is full of provocative ideas that make the moral idealist think twice about foundational beliefs and presuppositions. Indeed, the book is a much needed, lucid and wonderful presentation of the philosophy of order.” —Jacob Dahl Rendtorff, Roskilde University

EPISTEMIC ISSUES IN PRAGMATIC PERSPECTIVE

GABRIEL MARCEL AND AMERICAN PHILOSOPHY

By Nicholas Rescher, University of Pittsburgh

“This volume focuses on contemporary issues surrounding global migration, both in the wider world and, more specifically, in the US. Collier and Strain have assembled 16 essays on the subject from contributors, most of whom are academics; others are practitioners and activists in the field. The contributions include views from representatives of major world religions (Judaism, Islam, and Buddhism), but the dominant viewpoint is that of liberal Roman Catholic social teachings…. Recommended.”

“Rescher updates his clearest, articulate, and quite wonderful journey through the heart of pragmatic epistemology. For the persuasive reasons he urges, there is always some real probability that any of our beliefs about the physical world will be rejected and replaced in the future. He notes that some of our beliefs will be correct descriptions of the world, but our inherent limitations as a species prevent us from deciding once and for all which of our beliefs are closest to our aspirations to truth.” —Robert Almeder, Georgia State University

AESTHETIC TRANSCENDENTALISM IN EMERSON, PEIRCE, AND NINETEENTHCENTURY AMERICAN LANDSCAPE PAINTING By Nicholas Guardiano, Morris Library archives

“A timely contribution to the tradition of American philosophy (James, Du Bois, Addams, Peirce, Lugones) that starts with lived experience and with the notion that narratives sometimes provoke more philosophical reflection and understanding that argumentation. Immigration is more than a legal status, it is a lived experience; full of not only of conflict, hatred, and xenophobia but possibilities for mutual understanding and learning.” —Gregory Fernando Pappas,Texas A&M University

“Nicholas Guardiano makes a case for aesthetic transcendentalism employing the work of Peirce, Emerson, and the Hudson School painters. Guardiano employs the inherent affinities in the pragmatic and transcendentalist traditions, affinities that are often overlooked, to make an argument concerning the aesthetic importance of nature—an importance that is both ontologically inherent and instrumentally useful for human culture.” —Douglas R.

It guides the reader through the varieties of ways James both challenges and goes beyond contemporary theories.  I highly recommend it for anyone interested in the most up-to-date scholarship on James’s moral theory.” — Charlene Haddock Seigfried, Purdue University

The Capabilities Approach in Practice “Riddle provides a compelling case that the capabilities approach is at once the best we have and not yet satisfactory as a theory that addresses the experiences of people with disabilities within its core conception of justice. Drawing on a nuanced understanding of the cutting edge of capability theory and models of disability, he enriches the dialogue between these areas and makes distinctive theoretical advances in each.” —Christopher R.

New PEIRCE’S EMPIRICISM Its Roots and Its Originality

EPISTEMOLOGY, MIND, AND LANGUAGE

ETHICAL HABITS A Peircean Perspective

By Aaron Massecar, independent scholar

By Aaron Bruce Wilson, South Texas College

“Massecar has taken on the worthwhile adventure of seeing how Peirce’s normative (theoretical) ethics might be put to work. He explores a wide range of Peircean texts to make his case for critical selfcontrol in the development of human habits. The result is a persuasive story that reveals the nuances in Peirce’s thought and shows a creative dimension in establishing our moral habits and in pursuing human virtues. The Aristotelian-influenced Peirce of Massecar’s work is quite unlike the mechanical, deliberative Peirce others have promoted.” —Doug Anderson, Southern Illinois University Carbondale

“Wilson devotes his first chapter to a critical survey of the history of empiricism. His survey is remarkably thorough.... Pierce’s idea that we have to start with the methods, opinions, and prejudices we actually have, and then improve them in the course of critical inquiry, is, I think, the right one to take, and it deserves to be better known. Wilson’s book will be helpful for this.... It is the best, most informative book on Peirce’s whole system that I have read.” —Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews Series: American Philosophy Series 2017 • 358 pages 978-1-4985-1023-3 • $110.00 / £75.00 • Hardback 978-1-4985-1024-0 • $104.00 / £70.00 • eBook

A Song of Laws and Causes

DEATH AND FINITUDE

By Joseph Urbas, University of Bordeaux

“In this captivating book, Joseph Urbas proposes a reconstruction of the metaphysics of the American poet, essayist, and self-defined philosopher Ralph Waldo Emerson.... The author provides an abundance of textual evidence to support his thesis.”

Toward a Pragmatic Transcendental Anthropology of Human Limits and Mortality “Pragmatic naturalism has received considerable attention in recent years, and Sami Pihlström’s most recent work is a strong addition to that literature. It deepens his own ongoing transcendental approach to pragmatism and pragmatic naturalism in intriguing and forceful ways. He engages extensively with relevant analytic literature, as well as sources in other traditions, thus expanding the reach of pragmatist considerations. Finally, the work offers a range of conceptual and existential insights into fundamental questions of death, dying, and mortality.” —John Ryder, American University of Malta

“Professor Urbas offers both a thoughtful and passionate defense of Emerson as a metaphysical thinker, and a wide-ranging exploration of a broad swathe of contemporary philosophical texts that situates him in a vital transatlantic perspective.” — Francois Specq, Ecole Normale Supérieure de Lyon Series: American Philosophy Series

PHILOSOPHICAL FOUNDATIONS OF NEUROLAW

HOW TO EXPLAIN BEHAVIOR

By Martin Roth, Drake University

As neuroscience continues to reveal the biological basis of human thought and behavior, what impact will this have on legal theory and practice? The emerging field of neurolaw seeks to address this question, but doing so adequately requires confronting difficult philosophical issues surrounding the nature of mind, free will, rationality, and responsibility. Here, Martin Roth claims that the central philosophical issue facing neurolaw is whether we can reconcile the conception of ourselves as free, rational, and responsible agents with the conception of ourselves as complex bio-chemical machines. Roth argues that we can reconcile these conceptions. To show this, Roth develops and defends an account of free will that identifies free will with the capacity to respond to rational demands, and he argues that this capacity is at the foundation of our thinking about responsibility. 2017 • 236 pages 978-1-4985-3966-1 • $95.00 / £65.00 • Hardback 978-1-4985-3967-8 • $90.00 / £60.00 • eBook

Rakover’s provocative book consists of a comprehensive, in-depth analysis of the conceptual problems involved in the explanation of organismic behavior which concludes with a bold, creative suggestion of an original model that skillfully combines complementary mechanistic (causal) and mentalistic (teleological) explanations which together may account for both the external (explicit responses) and internal (implicit will and belief) behavioral processes.” —Israel Nachson, Bar Ilan University, professor emeritus 2017 • 290 pages 978-1-4985-3668-4 • $105.00 / £70.00 • Hardback 978-1-4985-3669-1 • $99.00 / £65.00 • eBook

“Dr. Whitehead’s contribution in this book is vital and timely in a day and age where the propensity is to establish false dichotomies. Psychology, at large, typically does not display a strong appetite for deep theoretical and critical reflection on its own subject matter, methodologies, or epistemic stances. Any form of critical analysis often ends abruptly, eschewing any substantive attempt at further synthesis. Psychology, in its current form, is a house divided against itself. Nonetheless, these divisions are often arbitrary, myopic, and harmful to the craft. Unifying these theoretical divisions takes, beyond a skilled intellect, a sense of humility and candor from visionary psychologist. I consider myself lucky to observe the progression of Dr. Whitehead’s views on these ideas. ” —Gary Senecal, College of the Holy Cross 2017 • 178 pages 978-1-4985-5935-5 • $90.00 / £60.00 • Hardback 978-1-4985-5936-2 • $85.00 / £54.95 • eBook

EPISTEMOLOGY, MIND, AND LANGUAGE

HEIDEGGER’S PATH TO LANGUAGE By Wanda Torres Gregory, Simmons College

“In evaluating Torres Gregory’s lucidly written study, there is much to commend…. Perhaps the most important virtue of the book is its ability to express Heidegger’s self-consciously ‘reticent’ thinking of language in a remarkably clear and coherent schema, helping to make Heidegger’s challenging views on language accessible to a more mainstream analytic audience…. At the same time, she introduces a number of interpretive theses regarding this development of Heidegger’s thinking of language that are both novel and convincing.” —Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews

“Torres Gregory provides a comprehensive and accessible overview of the development of Heidegger’s understanding of language from early to late, with particular emphasis on his interpretations of logos in Aristotle. The book concludes with a provocative critique of certain tendencies in Heidegger’s views on language, while suggesting the possibility of a productive dialogue between Heidegger’s views and recent developments in contemporary evolutionary biology and neuroscience.” —William McNeill, DePaul University 2016 • 184 pages 978-1-4985-2702-6 • $80.00 / £52.95 • Hardback 978-1-4985-2703-3 • $76.00 / £49.95 • eBook

Mentalism vs. Antimentalism

ACTION RECONCEPTUALIZED

A Philosophical Method

Human Agency and Its Sources

“Rescher turns his attention to ordinary language, advocating for a simple method for ensuring that philosophical concepts such as ’truth,’ ‘knowledge,’ and ‘beauty’ hew to their pre-philosophical meanings. Echoing Ludwig Wittgenstein, Rescher makes the case that when philosophy moves away from ordinary language, philosophy suffers, not merely in its ability to solve conceptual problems but also in its ability to resonate with non-philosophers. Rescher’s method—to examine the ordinary-language terms used in philosophical deliberation—takes just ten pages to elaborate; in the 36 brief chapters that follow, he demonstrates concept auditing in practice. Rescher subjects classic problems, among them the Cartesian demon and the ship of Theseus, to conceptual audit, turning up all manner of equivocations, category mistakes, and logical fallacies…. He is a titan of the field, and Concept Audits offers a methodologically sound glimpse into contemporary ordinary language philosophy in action…. Recommended.”

PHILOSOPHICAL AND EMPIRICAL APPROACHES TO PSYCHOLOGY By Giuseppe Lo Dico, Catholic University of Milan

Lo Dico philosophically analyzes four different approaches to psychology: introspectionism, behaviourism, cognitive psychology, and cognitive neuroscience to explore the concept of “the mind.” The resulting ideas originating from these approaches are divided into two main groups: mentalism (whose supporters assume that mind is not reducible to something else) and anti-mentalism (whose supporters assume that mind is indeed reducible to something else). This book argues that adopting one idea over another can have a profound influence in a psychologist’s research.

By David K. Chan, University of Wisconsin, Stevens Point

“Chan’s discussions and arguments are often insightful and engaging.... It is very clearly written and its arguments are thoughtprovoking and instructive. This is enough to make Chan’s book a valuable contribution to contemporary philosophy of action.” —Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews

“An instructive examination of basic concepts in the philosophy of action, including action, intention, decision, and trying. Chan usefully brings the philosophy of action into contact with ethical theory and the moral assessment of agents and their actions.” —Alfred R. Mele, Florida State University

—CHOICE

David K. Chan examines the sources of human agency that are proposed in causal theories of action—namely desire, intention, and trying— and distinguishes them from each other in terms of their roles in practical reasoning and motivation. He conceptualizes them in relation to each other in a way that is consistent and useful for answering a number of questions that are central to the philosophy of action.

PHILOSOPHICAL FOUNDATIONS OF EVOLUTIONARY PSYCHOLOGY

“Uri Wernik captures your mind and heart in his remarkably captivating and loving writing about Nietzsche. He is outstanding in developing Nietzsche’s largely ignored, but nonetheless monumental, psychology. Personally, I both agree with and am critical of much of Nietzsche’s profound thinking, but Wernik leaves respectable room when he writes: ‘Nietzsche persons are graduates of the best school of suspicion: they are skeptics.”. . . Wernik on Nietzsche is a tour de force.” —Israel W. Charny, Institute on the Holocaust & Genocide, Jerusalem

“Rationality within Modern Psychological Theory fully deserves careful study: Harold shows convincingly that besides many empirical methods and parts of psychology, there are important areas of this discipline that are based on logos and akin to philosophy, or even philosophical in nature.” —Josef M. Seifert, International Academy of Philosophy—Instituto de Filosofía Edith Stein (IAP-IFES)

“This historical-philosophical treatment traces the twisting path from psychology’s early assumptions, choices, blind spots, and misdirections to current explanations of what we claim to know about mind and behavior and why we seem to be so sure.

POLITICS AND AFFECT IN BLACK WOMEN’S FICTION

A DISCOURSE ON AFRICAN PHILOSOPHY

THE RULE OF LAW AND GOVERNANCE IN INDIGENOUS YORUBA SOCIETY

By Kathy Glass, Duquesne University

“One of the first scholars to apply affect studies to black women’s fiction, Kathy Glass persuasively argues that affect should be understood not in terms of mere sentimentality, but as a potentially radical evocation of social action. Offering important new readings of Frances Harper, Julia Collins, Nella Larsen, and Danzy Senna, Politics and Affect in Black Women’s Fiction skillfully analyzes the multiple operations through which affect poses a transgressive challenge to racist ideology and practice.” —Linda Furgerson Selzer, Penn State University This book reads classic and contemporary black women’s texts as richly creative documents saturated with sociopolitical value. Through careful philosophical and sociopolitical reflections on love’s staying power in these texts, Glass offers new insight into black women’s ingenuity and perseverance in personal, community, and political spaces.

A New Perspective on Ubuntu and Transitional Justice in South Africa

A Study in African Philosophy of Law

By John Ayotunde Isola Bewaji, University of the West Indies, Mona

By Christian B. N. Gade, Aarhus University

“John Bewaji grounds legal philosophy inescapably within its cultural context, contrary to conventional Western legal philosophy that, in the name of reason or science, is deceptively projected as culture-free. The book makes a significant contribution to the decolonization of legal philosophy and ought to be read by every serious student of it.” —John Murungi,Towson University

“In this book, Christian B. N. Gade refreshingly approaches the African philosophy of ubuntu neither as an ethnophilosophy, describing a single worldview purportedly held by all sub- Saharan peoples, nor as a moral philosophy, prescribing a single ethic they all should hold. Instead, he approaches it as an intellectual historian who is true to particularities. Resourcefully drawing on novel sources such as interviews and neglected documents, Gade reveals a variety of competing interpretations of ubuntu and plausibly argues for ways they have influenced South African politics in the post-apartheid era.” —Thaddeus Metz, University of Johannesburg Many have argued that ubuntu was a formative influence on the postapartheid Truth and Reconciliation Commission, South Africa’s famous transitional justice mechanism. Gade challenges and contextualizes this view in a way that not only provides new findings and reflections on ubuntu and the TRC, but also contributes to the field of African philosophy.

THE HABITS OF RACISM

DISENTANGLING CONSCIENCISM

A Phenomenology of Racism and Racialized Embodiment

Essays on Kwame Nkrumah’s Philosophy

By Helen Ngo, Deakin University

PHILOSOPHY AND THE MIXED RACE EXPERIENCE Edited by Tina Fernandes Botts, Oberlin College

“In these essays, mixed-race philosophers address the impact of this phenomenological experience on their philosophical work— analyzing, critiquing, and reflecting on the mixedrace experience as viewed personally, historically, socially, politically, and philosophically. Rich insights into the nature of the ‘lived experience’ of being a ‘mixed person’ are on display, as are various troubling questions raised.… Recommended.”

“Helen Ngo weaves together, in careful and astute readings, the philosophies of Maurice Merleau-Ponty and Martin Heidegger with recent phenomenologically-oriented work in philosophy of race, in particular Linda Martín Alcoff ’s, George Yancy’s, and my own work. Her account of habit as holding and held, her critical reformulation of ‘sedimentation’ as active receptivity, and her theorization of the bodily work, stress and affectivity of managing and anticipating racialization are keen analyses that take phenomenology of race—and phenomenology more generally— further and open up new and exciting spaces for thinking.” —Alia Al-Saji, McGill University The Habits of Racism examines some of the complex questions raised by the phenomenon and experience of racism. Helen Ngo first draws on the resources of Merleau-Ponty to argue that the conceptual reworking of habit as bodily orientation helps to identify the more subtle but fundamental workings of racism; to catch its insidious, gestural expressions, as well as its habitual modes of racialized perception.

Edited by Martin Odei Ajei, University of Ghana

The chapters in Disentangling Consciencism critically explore the metaphysical, ethical and political thought expressed in Consciencism. In doing so, they broaden our understanding of his philosophical ideas and their relevance for effective African contribution to thought in a contemporary world in which Africa increasingly totters on the margins of international affairs. In much of current moral and political thinking, there is a tendency to universalize liberal values and neglect non-Western philosophical perspectives. At the same time, global normative thinking is overwhelmingly applied in nonWestern contexts. Writing from across three continents, the contributors to this volume establish greater intellectual connection among African, Asian and Western academics, and their chapters offer explicit perspectives on the value of Nkrumah’s philosophy, and on the conceptual basis of early post-colonial public policy options in Africa. A valuable appendix provides the text of speeches delivered at the 1964 launch of Consciencism.

RASTAFARI REASONING AND THE RASTAWOMAN Gender Constructions in the Shaping of Rastafari Livity By Jeanne Christensen, University of Colorado, Boulder

“This book is an excitingly meticulous exercise in ‘lived religion,’ one that reveals RastaWomen confronting the movement’s numerous restrictions…. The author’s work is a small but not minor part of her life’s legacy…. It is a lovely gift to Rastafari as they move into a new era. It is highly recommended.” —Religious Studies Review

“This book is a succinct treatment of Rastafari: a refresher if you know the literature, and a good place to start if you do not. The discussion of the Rastafari gender transition between the 1940s to 1970s, for example, draws on well-known material but weaves it together in fresh ways.”

New in PaperBACK AN INTRODUCTION TO AFRICAN LEGAL PHILOSOPHY By John Murungi, Independent Scholar

African legal philosophy is deeply rooted in African culture—a culture that is today shaped, in part, by a European colonialist culture. One striking feature of this book is that it approaches African legal philosophy as a means of decolonization of African culture. African legal philosophy can accomplish this intelligently and effectively if it is itself decolonized. In doing this it contrasts sharply with mainstream Western legal philosophy.

WHITE SELF-CRITICALITY BEYOND ANTI-RACISM How Does It Feel to Be a White Problem? Edited by George Yancy, Duquesne University

“Yancy once again gives readers an edited volume on philosophy of race that is distinctive and insightful. This new book addresses a question to white academics who are antiracist scholars: ‘how does it feel to be a white problem?’ This volume is unique in not only accounting for whiteness generically, but also treating whiteness as a problem— something to be named and diagnosed as a fundamental stumbling block for racial justice. Among the book’s virtues are the insights offered by having 14 individuals speak of their personal and embodied experiences as white people in a racialized world. While the contributors avoid homogenizing the experience of white people, they all pinpoint a set of ways in which whiteness is a problem both within and outside antiracist activism….

HANNAH ARENDT AND THE FRAGILITY OF HUMAN DIGNITY

STABILITY IN POSTCOLONIAL AFRICAN STATES

MEN’S RIGHTS, GENDER, AND SOCIAL MEDIA

HABERMAS’S PUBLIC SPHERE

By Emmanuel Bueya, Loyola University of Congo

By John Douglas Macready, Collin College

John Douglas Macready offers a postfoundational account of human dignity by way of a reconstructive reading of Hannah Arendt. He argues that Arendt’s experience of political violence and genocide in the twentieth century, as well as her experience as a stateless person, led her to rethink human dignity as an intersubjective event of political experience. By tracing the contours of Arendt’s thoughts on human dignity through a close reading of her published works, Macready offers convincing evidence that Arendt was engaged in retrieving the political experience that gave rise to the concept of human dignity in order to move beyond the traditional accounts. 2017 • 158 pages 978-1-4985-5489-3 • $85.00 / £54.95 • Hardback 978-1-4985-5490-9 • $80.00 / £52.95 • eBook

New TOLERATION IN COMPARATIVE PERSPECTIVE

“The theme of Bueya’s book is, as even the author himself readily admits, big. For it is nothing less than a comprehensive analysis of the root causes of instability in postcolonial African states combined with an equally comprehensive prescription of how to achieve stability. Bueya is, however, up to the task and manages to pull it off. The core of his analysis of and solution to the instability problem turns on moving away from a state-centered political theorizing to a people-centered community oriented perspective, a shift from the organ of the state to the collective agency of the people. Bueya brings to the task not only a wide array of the currently most sophisticated philosophical/political theories, but also a deep existential knowledge and awareness of the African people beyond the state-centered theoretics.” —Patrick Goodin, Howard University 2017 • 202 pages 978-1-4985-4290-6 • $90.00 / £60.00 • Hardback 978-1-4985-4291-3 • $85.00 / £54.95 • eBook

New MILTON’S SOCRATIC RATIONALISM The Conversations of Adam and Eve in Paradise Lost By David Oliver Davies, University of Dallas

Edited by Vicki A. Spencer, University of Otago

“Spencer has brought together a distinguished group of scholars from across the globe with the shared aim of challenging the complacent view held by many contemporary philosophers that the idea of toleration is a wholly modern phenomenon, founded on liberalism and distinctively Western in origin. The contributors disrupt these assumptions by means of careful examination of writings reflecting a broad range of intellectual traditions, including Islam, Buddhism, Confucianism, Hinduism, and Native American thought.” —Cary Nederman,Texas A&M University

By Christa Hodapp, University of Massachusetts, Lowell

“What, exactly, did Adam and Eve do when they ate fruit from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, and what were the consequences? John Milton put this question front and center in Paradise Lost; and, in this provocative monograph, David Davies makes a compelling case that the English poet’s take on these questions owes as much to Xenophon, Plato, and Aristotle as it does to the Book of Genesis.” —Paul A. Rahe, Hillsdale College

New PHILIP ROTH AND THE AMERICAN LIBERAL TRADITION By Andy Connolly, Hostos Community College

“Andy Connolly breaks new ground by taking Roth’s fiction wholly back into the world of American political culture from which his art comes, from the New Deal to the current fractured political scene. In fresh, perceptive, and deeply informed close readings of the later novels, Connolly challenges the ways we have thought about Philip Roth. His superb scholarship shows persuasively how the decline of the liberal consensus concerning American society inflects Roth’s often conflicted engagement with matters of historical fact, the place of the artist, and the forms of fiction.” —Debra Shostak, College of Wooster “Connolly’s ambitious study considers the uneasy relationship between Roth’s formal experimentation and his historical consciousness. Via the perspectives of literary formalism and new historicism, it raises new questions about the vexed status of Roth’s literary technique in conversation with his representation of American history and politics.” —Aimee Pozorski, Central Connecticut State University Series: Politics, Literature, & Film 2017 • 292 pages 978-1-4985-1180-3 • $105.00 / £70.00 • Hardback 978-1-4985-1181-0 • $99.00 / £65.00 • eBook

A Critique

By Michael Hofmann, Florida Atlantic University

Hoffman analyzes the evolution of Juergen Habermas’s social and political theory from the 1950s to the present by focusing on the explicit and on the tacit changes in his thinking about The Structural Transformation of the Public Sphere. Integrating “public sphere,” “discourse,” and “reason,” the three categories at the center of his lifelong work as a scholar and as a public intellectual, Habermas’s classic public sphere concept has deeply influenced an unusually high number of disciplines in the social sciences and in the humanities. In the process, its complex methodology, whose sources are not always identified, can be perplexing and therefore lead to misunderstandings.

By Krešimir Petković, University of Zagreb

This book brings together various discourses concerned with violence and punishment, paying special attention to the extreme variations of these phenomena. Starting from a narrow definition of violence as an infliction of physical harm, paired with a broad discussion of its causes and a wide definition of punishment as an authority claim to retribution or reform, the book maps and interprets political-theoretical discourses on the death penalty, historical explanations of the changes of violence and punishment, and comparative differences in punishment. 2017 • 610 pages 978-1-4985-1344-9 • $160.00 / £105.00 • Hardback 978-1-4985-1345-6 • $152.00 / £100.00 • eBook

Edited by David Edward Tabachnick, Nipissing University, and Leah Bradshaw, Brock University

This volume explores some of the tensions and pressures of citizenship in Western liberal democracies. Citizenship has adopted many guises in the Western context, although historically citizenship is attached only to some variant of democracy. How democracy is configured is thus at the core of citizenship. The universality of rights claims has led to debate about the legitimacy of the nation state and questioning of borders.

He does so, insightfully, by placing recognition in the realm of Rawls’s nonideal theory for, if the community of nations were operating in the ideal realm, the question of recognition would be moot. … Recommended.”

A Socratic Legacy of Philosophical Dissent

TOLERANCE AND MODERN LIBERALISM

By Ramin Jahanbegloo, O. P. Jindal Global University

By Laurie M. Johnson, Kansas State University

Ramin Jahanbegloo argues that Socrates founded philosophy but also political dissent and philosophical revolt against power abuse, linking citizenphilosopher Socrates with the radical, disobedient, and nonviolent Socrates. He shows how these complementary characteristics were taken up by nonviolent practitioners Mahatma Gandhi, Henry David Thoreau, Martin Luther King Jr., and Albert Camus. Examining dissent in the history of philosophy, this book will appeal to scholars of political theory and political philosophy and to scholars and students of political and intellectual history.

“In a fine and unusually comprehensive analysis of honor in Tocqueville, Laurie Johnson shows how Tocqueville understood the sense of honor to shape American life in domains ranging from politics, business, and the military to family, religion, and race relations. The book makes an effective case for the continuing value of honor in liberal democratic societies today, and helps us envision a uniquely American code of honor attuned to the demands of our contemporary times.” —Sharon Krause, Brown University

“Shadd provides a brilliant critique of justificatory liberalism, exposing its many flaws, and it illustrates the rich resources of the neo-Calvinist perspective for politics. He provides a great example of how to debate with political theories from a Christian perspective. ”

“The study works through the paradox of hermeneutics—its task is to understand Heller better than she does herself. And Agnes would agree—we cannot control the reception of our own work, or the uses to which it is put. The book focuses on Marx as the optic, but it opens up onto much of Heller’s work via connections to her major interlocutors. This is a major achievement, for it works effectively through themes rather than through a formal procession of authorities.”—Peter Beilharz, Curtin University

New NEOLIBERALISM, THE SECURITY STATE, AND THE QUANTIFICATION OF REALITY By David R. Lea, American University of Sharjah

As the security state grows in power and dominance, commercial and financial interests increasingly penetrate our social existence. Lea addresses the relationship between these two trends in his discussion of neoliberalism, financialization, and managerialism, with a particular focus on the decline of professionalism, the restructuring of tertiary education, and the university’s abandonment of the humanities. Additionally, he links these developments with the failings of democratic institutions, the growth of the disciplinary society, and the emergence of the security state, which relentlessly governs by extraordinary fiat dividing, disempowering and excluding. 2017 • 252 pages 978-1-4985-2007-2 • $90.00 / £60.00 • Hardback 978-1-4985-2008-9 • $85.00 / £54.95 • eBook

THE POLITICS AND PHILOSOPHY OF CHINESE POWER The Timeless and the Timely

By R. James Ferguson and Rosita Dellios, both Bond University

“It is an erudite exploration and evaluation of the qualities that have allowed Chinese civilization to shape a world order that many can still only address in outmoded stereotypes. The reader is left with a profound sense of a Confucian-Daoist tradition of thought culture. It is one which influences Chinese priorities in the human and natural world in unfamiliar ways, addressing global challenges. Essential reading if one seeks to understand the forces transforming the 21st Century.” —Reginald Little, International Confucian Association 2017 • 306 pages 978-0-7391-9294-8 • $100.00 / £70.00 • Hardback 978-0-7391-9295-5 • $95.00 / £65.00 • eBook

THE POLITICS OF PERFECTION Technology and Creation in Literature and Film By Kimberly Hurd Hale, Coastal Carolina University

“Working at the intersection of literature, film, and philosophy, Hale is able to show the ways artifacts of pop culture are imbued with philosophical insights and the ways political philosophy is both art and science. Her lucid prose makes this book accessible to students and teachers alike. By working through film and literature known well among the artifacts of popular culture, this book is likely to reach a conscientious public for whom technology is simultaneously a threat and a solution.” —Eduardo Velasquez, independent scholar Series: Politics, Literature, & Film 2017 • 162 pages 978-1-4985-0992-3 • $80.00 / £52.95 • Hardback 978-1-4985-0993-0 • $76.00 / £49.95 • eBook

THE THEOLOGICAL ORIGINS OF LIBERALISM By İsmail Kurun, University of Necmettin Erbakan

By Edward Conze Translated by Holger R. Heine independent scholar

“The near-total suppression of Conze’s ‘The Principle of Contradiction’ by the Nazi regime was a huge loss to Marxist scholarship. Holger Heine’s discovery of a rare copy of the German manuscript, and production of an English translation, is undoubtedly one of the great gains. There is much in the work to interest Marxists of course, but it also makes contributions that are of significance to all scholars of contemporary Philosophy of Logic…. To now have it available is an intellectual triumph.” —Marx & Philosophy Review of Books 2017 • 562 pages 978-0-7391-2712-4 • $150.00 / £100.00 • Hardback 978-1-4985-4014-8 • $142.00 / £95.00 • eBook

“İsmail Kurun’s book fills a gap in the literature on the emergence of liberalism.” —Economic Affairs

Continuity or Rupture in the Wake of the Arab Uprisings “The book does a good job in providing answers to the two main questions it raises: Why and in which ways the Arab Spring was a middle class phenomenon, and why and in which ways the pre-2011 traditions (authoritarianism and Islamism) reasserted themselves so forcefully, not to say violently, in the MENA countries after the uprisings of 2011…. The authors of this collective volume are to be congratulated for having elevated themselves above present day social sciences enslaved to the scientist myth of instrumental reason.”

“This stimulating and diverse collection of essays includes a participant-observer’s account of life in progressive Mormon households, a theoretical analysis of why ‘liberal neutrality’ should lead to legal recognition of multiple-partner marriage, a lawyer’s argument against legal recognition of plural marriage, and much more. Multidisciplinary in approach, it provides a rich overview of many complex issues raised by polygamy, plural marriage, polyamory, and the family forms to which these practices give rise.” —Mary L. Shanley,Vassar College

Dead Body Politics

By Andrew Moore, St. Thomas University

“Andrew Moore’s book is bold and enlightening.... Moore provides a philosophical framework that prods the careful reader to think more clearly about Shakespeare’s political wisdom.” —VoegelinView

“Moore clearly reveals the overlap between the political and philosophical outlook that Shakespeare expresses in his dramas and the work of Machiavelli and Hobbes. At the same time, he recognizes important differences among them. This original contribution to both modern political thought and Shakespeare scholarship is beautifully written, and deepens our appreciation of Shakespeare’s wisdom.” —Mary Nichols, Baylor University Series: Politics, Literature, & Film 2016 • 190 pages 978-1-4985-1407-1 • $80.00 / £52.95 • Hardback 978-1-4985-1408-8 • $76.00 / £49.95 • eBook

New in PaperBACK NON-VIOLENCE A History Beyond the Myth

By Domenico Losurdo, University of Urbino Translated by Gregory Elliott

“In attempting to make nonviolence into a myth, the Italian philosopher Losurdo examines several theorists and practitioners of nonviolence from early Quakers and Martin Luther King Jr. in the US to Chinese demonstrators in Tiananmen Square. In the several cases he examines, the author finds that nonviolence rhetoric invariably occurs alongside some, and often considerable, violence…. Presenting several cases in which Gandhi endorsed violence, such as his support for Britain in WW I, the author portrays Gandhi’s nonviolence as a sham…. Recommended. ”

“The authors provide a much needed underpinning for management theory and thought. By uncovering the philosophical roots of management, assumptions about human nature and work can be examined more closely and measured against the social values that they represent. ” —William L.Waugh Jr., Georgia State University

RECOVERING HEGEL FROM THE CRITIQUE OF LEO STRAUSS

Action, Ends, and Natural Rhetoric

By Jeffrey J. Maciejewski, Creighton University

“This book is truly groundbreaking, insofar as nothing on the interface of natural law and rhetoric has been published in recent decades. Professor Maciejewski works comfortably with abstract principles in ethical theory and analyzes their multiple relevant applications in the ‘real world.’ His analysis is unique in showing the ethical implications of the natural law of human sociality to the art/science of rhetoric.” —Howard P.

“This useful book explores, and defends, Hegel’s political philosophy in response to Leo Strauss’s critique of Hegel’s defense of modernity.

Time, Money, and the Culture of Abstraction

The Love of Wisdom in the Age of Mass Incarceration

By Christian Lotz, Michigan State University

“This is a significant intervention into current reinterpretations of Marx’s theory of value. Eschewing the Hegelian heritage of much value-form theory, Lotz gives a Kantian interpretation of the law of value. This states that the money form works along schematic lines. For Lotz, money establishes the conditions of possible experience and the social thinghood of objects. The book gives the clearest exposition yet of the real abstraction by which all things enter into relation with all other things.” —Marx & Philosophy Review of Books 2016 • 191 pages 978-1-4985-0462-1 • $39.99 / £24.95 • Paperback 978-0-7391-8246-8 • $88.00 / £60.00 • Hardback (2015) 978-0-7391-8247-5 • $37.99 / £24.95 • eBook

Rather than being an atavism, Levy argues, Machiavelli’s thought offers an alternative to contemporary liberalism that partakes of both elitism and populism. Liberty, in Levy’s Machiavelli, originates in conflict between the classes named in the title.… Highly recommended.” — CHOICE

Interventions in Philosophy of Education from Within and Without

By Brock Bahler, University of Pittsburgh

Edited by Ramón Grosfoguel, University of California, Berkley; Roberto Hernández, San Diego State University; and Ernesto Rosen Velásquez, University of Dayton

“Bahler presents an account that is based on the writings of French philosophers Emmanuel Levinas and Maurice Merleau-Ponty. Usually these two thinkers are considered to be in sharp disagreement, but Bahler combines their insights by examining their views on the parent-child relation. The parent-child relation is resistant to traditional analysis and reveals a relationship that is best understood as ethical as opposed to interest driven. This leads to a more optimistic reading of human relations. Bahler explores some of the political and social consequences of this view of subjectivity.… Bahler’s presentation is...clear and accessible. … Recommended.”

Decolonizing the Westernized University provides a sharper understanding of the crisis and the responses to the westernized university at multiple sites around the world. As an intervention in the philosophy of education discourse, which tends to assume the university is a neutral space, this collection will be of particular value to students and scholars working in philosophy of education, Latina/o philosophy, Africana philosophy, social epistemology, education, cultural studies, and ethnic studies, as well as to intellectual activists in the United States, south of the border, and around the world. 2017 • 280 pages 978-1-4985-0375-4 • $90.00 / £60.00 • Hardback 978-1-4985-0376-1 • $85.00 / £54.95 • eBook

Ford moves deftly and daringly between disparate thinkers and concepts, weaving together philosophy, history, and educational theory in creative, profound, and lucid ways. He identifies and answers the most pressing political question of our moment: What does it mean to study like a communist? In doing so, he develops a groundbreaking communist theory of study, a praxis that is as provocative as it is practical.” —Peter McLaren, Chapman University

In a book as rigorously argued as it is creative, Anna Strelis Söderquist deftly presents Kierkegaard as educator, but much more than that, she generates beguiling possibilities for applying Kierkegaard’s pedagogical prescriptions. Kierkegaard was hard to please, but I am sure that this is one interpretation of his work that he would have smiled upon.” —Gordon Marino, St. Olaf College

CRITICAL UNIVERSITY By Tanya Loughead, Canisius College

“As universities become corporate institutions, where millions of students get little in the way of education but an abundance in debt, Critical University calls out the problems and provides solutions. This is a straightforward, outstanding blueprint on taking back our universities.... Read this book now if you are in favor of democracy, affordable education, and critical thinking.” —Anthony J.

By Walter Feinberg, emeritus, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign

“Education philosopher Feinberg distinguishes between public schools and public education.… He examines the concepts of education and culture and the basic function of a public school to produce a public through communication and proposes that the educator’s task is to prepare a public to reflect on the present and engage a future that is not yet fully comprehended. And he suggests some curricula, pedagogical, and financial ideas. Feinberg is a good philosopher…. Recommended.” —CHOICE

The Philosophical Geopolitics of the Climate Change Apocalypse

Calming the Storm

Edited by Sarah Bezan, University of Alberta, and James Tink, Tohoku University, Sendai

By Ingemar Nordin, Linköping University

Building new proximities with the animal in and through, and at times in spite of, the visual apparatus, Seeing Animals after Derrida investigates how the recent turn in animal studies toward new materialism, speculative realism, and object-oriented ontology prompts a renewed engagement with Derrida’s animal philosophy. In taking up the matter of Derrida’s treatment of animality for the current epoch, the contributors to this book each present a case for new philosophical approaches and aesthetic paradigms that challenge the ocularcentrism of Western culture.

“Nordin’s fresh and original contribution to the philosophy of technology emphasizes that technology, although dependent on science, is something far beyond science.” —Lennart Nordenfelt, Ersta-Sköndal-Bräcke University College

Lee argues that there are no versions of conquest capital compatible with the fact of a finite planet, and that the pursuit of growth is destined to not only exhaust our planetary resources, but generate profound social injustice and geopolitical violence in its pursuit. Lee argues that any comprehensive analysis of what Jason Moore has dubbed the Capitalocene must include an equally probing account of human chauvinism, that is, the axes along which capital is supplied with resources and labor.

DIPHTHERIA SERUM AS A TECHNOLOGICAL OBJECT A Philosophical Analysis of Serotherapy in France 1894–1900 By Jonathan Simon, Université Claude Bernard Lyon 1

“With his in-depth study of the history of diphtheria antiserum in France, Simon makes a valuable contribution. Building on his own highly regarded earlier work, Simon convincingly shows that medicines such as diphtheria antiserum are more than just material objects. They are special technological objects, given form and sense by the context in which they are adopted in and the many roles they fulfill, in return shaping the societies in which they are deployed.” —Viviane Quirke, Oxford Brookes University

“These timely and penetrating essays in the philosophy of technology employ the tools of postphenomenology and pragmatism to explore what media are and what they do. Advancing the work of Marshal McLuhan and Don Ihde, they offer crucial insights into how we are to live in an era when virtually everything mediates our experience. ” —Larry A.

THE PHILOSOPHICAL FOUNDATIONS OF CLASSICAL CHINESE MEDICINE

THE HUMAN RELATIONSHIP TO NATURE

Philosophy, Methodology, Science

By Matthew R. Foster, Molloy College

By Keekok Lee, Manchester University

This book makes Classical Chinese Medicine (CCM) intelligible to those who are not familiar with the tradition and who may choose to dismiss it offhand or to assess it negatively. Keekok Lee uses two related strategies: arguing that all science and therefore medicine cannot be understood without excavating its philosophical presuppositions and showing what those presuppositions are in the case of CCM compared with those of biomedicine.

Edited by Forrest Clingerman, Ohio Northern University, and Kevin J. O’Brien, Pacific Lutheran University

“A strength of this collection is the balance between theological and ethical perspectives, reflecting the importance of religious thought in both shaping our understanding of climate change and orienting our actions in response to it….

NATURAL KINDS AND GENESIS The Classification of Material Entities

By Stewart Umphrey, emeritus, St. John’s College, Annapolis

Stewart Umphrey discusses two questions: What is it to be a natural kind? And are there any natural kinds? He argues that natural kinds may be understood as classes or as types, and that the members or tokens of such kinds are individual continuants. He agrees with scientific essentialists that there are natural kinds but argues that most of the chemical, physical, and biological kinds posited in current theories are not natural kinds in the primary sense of the term.

INTERESTS AND EPISTEMIC INTEGRITY IN SCIENCE

The Limit of Reason, the Basis of Value, and the Crisis of Environmental Ethics “This book argues that conventional environmental ethics cannot sustain the view that there is intrinsic value in nature because there is a fundamental incommensurability between nature and moral reasoning. What makes this book particularly interesting is its deployment of reasoning to underpin a new approach to environmental ethics in which moral agents freely ‘choose their environmental responsibilities.’ ” —Robert Elliot, University of Sunshine Coast

A New Framework to Assess Interest Influences in Scientific Research Processes By Jan De Winter, independent scholar

“De Winter, an ethics teacher, proposes that the ‘ideal of purity,’ which suggests that science is only driven by the pursuit of knowledge, is misguided…. This book is notable for developing a framework for better understanding the interests that drive science; this framework is built on what de Winter calls the ‘technological sciences’—which range from medicine to software engineering and space science—rather than basic physics or biology, which have received the bulk of previous philosophical attention. The work is readable and proceeds deliberately, making it accessible and of broad interest to philosophers of science... Recommended.” —CHOICE

“Avoiding the easy temptation to simply recuperate Nancy’s thinking into an affirmation of theism, Christina Smerick explores the resonances of his deconstruction of Christianity within the multiple texts and contexts of the Christian tradition itself, from its earliest period and the thought of the Church Fathers through to more recent debates within theology. In so doing she highlights the irreducible complexities and nuances of Nancy’s account of Christianity and argues that, not only is this tradition still very much with us whether we like it or not, but that it can offer indispensable resources for the overcoming of onto-theology and for responding to the challenges of our contemporary world.” — Ian James, University of Cambridge 2017 • 138 pages 978-1-4985-2156-7 • $85.00 / £54.95 • Hardback 978-1-4985-2157-4 • $80.00 / £52.95 • eBook

By Geoffrey Dierckxsens, Czech Academy of Sciences

This is a guide for readers who are interested in Paul Ricœur’s thoughts on morals in general. More exactly, it brings together the different aspects of what Geoffrey Dierckxsens understands as Ricœur’s moral anthropology. He addresses the question what it means to be human, capable of participating in moral life. Dierckxsens argues that Ricœur shows that this participation implies being a self, living a singular lived existence with others and being responsible in institutions of justice. By lived existence one comes to learn taking moral decisions and the reasons for moral life. The wager of Ricœur’s hermeneutical approach to moral anthropology is— so Dierckxsens argues—to understand moral life on the basis of the interpretation of lived existence, rather than on the basis of cultural or natural patterns only, many contemporary moral theories in analytical philosophy like Ricœur’s moral anthropology is thus particularly timely in that it offers a critical argument against contemporary moral relativism and reductionism. By bringing together Ricœur’s moral anthropology, and recent moral theories this book offers a novel perspective on Ricœur’s already well-established moral theory.

AUTOBIOLOGIES

Edited by Jonathan Lavery, Wilfrid Laurier University, and Louis Groarke and William Sweet, both St. Francis Xavier University, Nova Scotia

What does it mean for nature to be sacred? Is anything supernatural or even unnatural? Nature’s Transcendence and Immanence discusses nature’s divinizing process of unfolding and folding through East-West dialogues and interdisciplinary methodologies. Nature’s selving/god-ing processes are the sacred that is revealed as nature’s transcendent and immanent dimensions. Each chapter shares a part of nature’s sacred folds that are complexes within nature that have unusual semiotic density. These discussions serve to help restore a better relationship to nature as a whole through an innovative combination of research and ideas from a variety of traditions and disciplines. This collection not only introduces ecstatic naturalism and deep pantheism as sacred practices of philosophy and theology, but also invites a broader audience from a wide range of academic disciplines such as neuro-psychoanalysis, aesthetics, mythology, neuroscience, and artificial intelligence (AI).

New HEAVEN AND PHILOSOPHY

Edited by Simon Cushing, University of Michigan-Flint

Most people believe in some kind of heaven, and that they will end up there, but have not thought what it will be like, or how they will feel about their loved ones who haven’t made it. This collection analyzes different issues concerning the nature, possibility, and desirability of heaven as understood by the Abrahamic faiths of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Topics include whether it is possible that a mortal could become an inhabitant of heaven without loss of identity, where exactly heaven might be located, whether or not animals should enter, whether or not everyone should be saved, if there might be alternative destinations (including some less fiery versions of Hell), and whether heaven provides an incentive for altruistically motivated killing. Chapter authors include believers and skeptics, well-known philosophers, and new voices. 2017 • 346 pages 978-1-4985-5566-1 • $110.00 / £75.00 • Hardback 978-1-4985-5567-8 • $109.99 / £75.00 • eBook

An Argument for Human Resurrection

Hallowing the Hollow

Conceptualizing God’s Desire for the Flesh

By William Hunt, Heythrop College

God, Probability and Life after Death presents an exploratory argument concerning the probability of human resurrection based upon the existence of God and a set of evidential elements, namely, the Resurrection of Jesus, near-death experiences, and apparitions. The exploratory argument follows a probabilistic passage along an evidential trail to the discovery of the probability of life after death. It is a trail that the reader can personally engage with in order to reach their own conclusion and even introduce additional evidence they think relevant. William Hunt’s argument employs subjective probability theory using Bayes’ theorem in a cumulative process. 2017 • 298 pages 978-1-4985-2606-7 • $105.00 / £70.00 • Hardback 978-1-4985-2607-4 • $99.00 / £65.00 • eBook

“Berman tackles one of the most difficult problems in Merleau-Ponty’s thinking: what is the connection between the perceptual faith and religious faith? Berman shows with rigor and insight that, for Merleau-Ponty, perceptual faith merges with religious faith insofar as God is a continual call to question. Merleau-Ponty and God ends with a powerful comparison of Merleau-Ponty and Buber.” —Leonard Lawlor, Pennsylvania State University

A Hermeneutic of Cultural Subjectivity

New

New “What if, as many people hold, evil as well as good comes from God? ‘God’s evil’ then invites a question: What should we say now about God’s own moral character, including divine goodness? Kellenberger offers an engaging, informed response, bearing on theodicy, forgiveness, mystery, lessening evil, Job’s notorious situation, and related topics. All readers will benefit from his probing and forthright examination of God, evil, and goodness.” —Paul K. Moser, Loyola University Chicago

RICOEUR, CULTURE, AND RECOGNITION PAUL RICOEUR’S HERMENEUTICS AND THE DISCOURSE OF MARK 13

By James Kellenberger, emeritus, California State University, Northridge

“Feminist Explorations of Paul Ricoeur’s Philosophy gathers contributions from both world-renowned scholars of Ricoeur’s thought and leading feminist thinkers. It is a provocative and ambitious book that both locates in Ricoeur’s philosophical project voices not commonly associated with his work and demonstrates their significance. Halsema and Henriques provide Ricoeur scholars and philosophy students in general with a multi-perspective view on how far the conflict of interpretations can go without losing sight of the central tenets of Ricoeur’s phenomenological hermeneutics.”

“In this book Adam Pryor offers a fresh view on the Christian notion of the incarnation of God in Christ. He boldly connects Christian notions, concepts and insights from the fields of Constructive Theology, Biblical Studies, Feminist Theology and Phenomenology in his account of ‘incarnation in itself ’ as a wild ‘thing.’ Incarnation is, he argues, a wild, intimate and transformative event.” —Johanne Stubbe T Kristensen, University of Copenhagen

Personhood and Citizenship

“Deweer’s new book is incisive in two directions: looking forward and looking back. Looking back, the volume is illuminating in revealing the influence of personalism and its philosophy of the interrelation between person and community on Paul Ricoeur’s philosophy of the self. The look forward demonstrates how Ricoeur’s theory of the relational self introduces a form of republicanism that at once mediates between liberalism and communitarianism and also advances beyond existing approaches to republicanism.” —George H.Taylor, University of Pittsburgh

FEMINIST EXPLORATIONS OF PAUL RICOEUR’S PHILOSOPHY

By Peter C. de Vries, independent scholar

The apocalyptic discourse of Mark 13 predicts that cataclysmic events will occur within the generation of Jesus’ contemporaries. Paul Ricoeur’s hermeneutics enables a reader to understand this text as a presentation of truth rather than as a failed prediction. Ricoeur argues that the meaning of a text is not defined by the author’s intention nor by the reader’s reception, but by the text itself; today’s reader is able to read it as metaphor, and to discern latent meaning that is present in the text.

“Timo Helenius importantly and rightly contends that the work of Paul Ricoeur rests in a hermeneutic of culture. This thesis is an important corrective to any view that Ricoeur concentrates on individual understanding or ethics. The book is insightful in linking the role of culture to what typically has been viewed as Ricoeur’s separate work on recognition. It is through cultural recognition that someone can find himself as an ethico-political subject. This book is particularly perspicacious in its understanding and delineation of the sweep of Ricoeur’s corpus.” —George Taylor, University of Pittsburgh Series: Studies in the Thought of Paul Ricoeur 2016 • 254 pages 978-1-4985-2093-5 • $90.00 / £60.00 • Hardback 978-1-4985-2094-2 • $85.00 / £54.95 • eBook

New in PaperBACK GADAMER AND THE QUESTION OF UNDERSTANDING Between Heidegger and Derrida

By Adrian Costache, Babeș-Bolyai University

Costache shows that Gadamer’s translation of Heidegger involved, as he says, a series of “essential alterations” to the original that make philosophical hermeneutics a more coherent and better articulated hermeneutic theory, one offering a more faithful description of the phenomenon of understanding than Heidegger’s. By taking the dossier of the famous encounter between Gadamer and Derrida as its cue, Costache shows that this does not mean that it would be an unsurpassable achievement in the field. 2018 • 166 pages 978-1-4985-3091-0 • $42.99 / £29.95 • Paperback 978-0-7391-8501-8 • $80.00 / £52.95 • Hardback (2016) 978-0-7391-8502-5 • $39.99 / £24.95 • eBook

DEEP PANTHEISM

RETHINKING PHILOSOPHY IN LIGHT OF THE BIBLE

MAKING SPACE FOR KNOWING

THE SOUND OF ONTOLOGY

A Capacious Approach to Comparative Epistemology

Music as a Model for Metaphysics

This book is an intervention in mainstream western epistemology, especially as it relates to theories of knowledge, knowing, and knowers. Through its focus on propositional knowledge, contemporary mainstream epistemology has narrowed the scope of the definition of “knowledge” to a point where it fails to accurately describe the structure of knowing and prevents a genuine understanding of “knowledge” across different contexts and cultures. By drawing on resources in analytic philosophy and hermeneutics, the book outlines an approach to comparative epistemology that makes space for the particularity of non-Western approaches to knowing. It then further develops this model through engagement with classical Chinese philosophy and twentieth century Chinese epistemologists, offering a set of best practices for comparative epistemology.

LaFave explores connections between Western art music in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, and the ideas that dominated philosophy leading up to and during that period. In the process of establishing John Cage as Richard Wagner’s heir via Arnold Schoenberg, the author discovers that the old metaphysics of representation is still in charge of how we think about music and about experience in general. Instead of settling for the positivist definition of music as mere sound framed by time, LaFave provides a phenomenology of music that reveals pitch as the ontological counterpart to frequency, and music as a vehicle for understanding how, as Heidegger observed, the Being of “things of value” are invariably grounded in the Being of “things of nature.” Numerous musical examples and a poem by Wallace Stevens illustrate LaFave’s case that hierarchy is intrinsic to this understanding.

Toward a New Transcendentalism

By Robert S. Corrington, Drew University

“Bringing process thought, psychoanalysis, phenomenology, and ecotheology together while attempting to move beyond the limits of all of them, Corrington proposes a model for relating to nature as ‘all there is’ while avoiding the reductive tendencies that characterize many versions of naturalism…. This book stands as a constructive proposal for phenomenology, psychoanalysis, and religion. Even if one is not convinced by the arguments, the sheer originality of the proposal and the innovation of the application make it worth careful attention.… Recommended.”

Polka’s project of critical examination, in light of the Bible, of these philosophers’ core concepts is a model of the synthesis of scholarly erudition and bold synopsis characteristic of the best philosophy in the hermeneutical tradition.” —The European Legacy – Toward New Paradigms Series: Graven Images

Recent Advances in Process Thought

“Philosophy of the Ancient Maya is a brilliant book and a labor of love. Alexus McLeod is a rare mind: deeply curious, linguistically gifted, a sensitive detector of similarity and difference, with deep grasp of classical Chinese philosophy, contemporary analytic philosophy, and Mayan Philosophy. This book is a crystalclear introduction to the metaphysical, epistemological, and ethical wisdom of this great Meso-American civilization.” —Owen Flanagan, author of The Geography of Morals “Alexus McLeod has provided a lucid analysis of the distinctive theories of time and personhood that emerged in Maya philosophy; he has articulated several points of fruitful convergence between this tradition and the Early Chinese tradition. I would recommend this book to anyone who is intrigued by the idea of a transformative metaphysics, which includes both substances and processes—without giving either a privileged ontological status.” —Bryce Huebner, Georgetown University Series: Studies in Comparative Philosophy and Religion 2017 • 248 pages 978-1-4985-3138-2 • $95.00 / £65.00 • Hardback 978-1-4985-3139-9 • $90.00 / £60.00 • eBook

“The meaning and significance of Whitehead springs from his amazing capacity to take into account past philosophical and scientific adventures of ideas and to actualize them. At a time of major, even dramatic, ethical challenges and ideological uncertainties, this is precisely what this remarkable collection of essays brings about. To paraphrase Huxley (The Perennial Philosophy, 1947), Whitehead’s legacy is the plummet and Whitheadian scholarship the astrolabe of this book, which aims at a nothing less than a second Renaissance.” —Michel Weber, Director of the Centre for Philosophical Practice, Brussels The book is split into two parts: the first discussing the historical roots of and future perspectives for basic concepts of process thinking, and the second presenting original contemporary work in extending and re-interpreting the basic metaphysical structure of process.

THE MOTIF OF THE MESSIANIC

JOSS WHEDON AS PHILOSOPHER

Encounters between East and West

By Jae-seong Lee, Pusan National University

“This impressive book will appeal to all those interested in comparative philosophy, postmodernism, Buddhist philosophy, metaphysics, literary criticism, and ethical issues. The book is very ambitious because the author wants to expand postmodern critical theory by using for the most part the Zen Buddhist understanding of emptiness to accomplish his goal. With the philosophy of Levinas influencing the discussion, a focus on the role of the other plays a major role in the work, an emphasis that is insightfully and creatively presented with discussions of Job, Dracula, and Frankenstein in chapters 5 through 7. The book is worth reading just for these chapters. In short, Lee’s admirable book is a welcome addition to comparative philosophy and ethics.” —Carl Olson, Allegheny College Series: Studies in Comparative Philosophy and Religion 2017 • 270 pages 978-1-4985-1922-9 • $49.99 / £32.95 • Paperback 978-1-4985-1920-5 • $95.00 / £65.00 • Hardback (2016) 978-1-4985-1921-2 • $46.99 / £31.95 • eBook

Edited by Alain Beaulieu, Laurentian University; Edward Kazarian, Rowan University; and Julia Sushytska, Pacifica Graduate Institute

“Gilles Deleuze famously declared himself to be a ‘pure metaphysician’ in an era when philosophy seemed preoccupied by the theme of overcoming metaphysics. As a consequence, perhaps, we have scarcely begun to explore the implications of the immanent metaphysics that Deleuze developed almost half a century ago. Alain Beaulieu, Edward Kazarian, and Julia Sushytska have here brought together an extraordinary collection of philosophers to explore the complex dimensions of Deleuze’s project, from its mathematical roots to its political ramifications. The result is an extremely important volume that opens up new vistas on one of the fundamental aspects of Deleuze’s philosophy. ” —Daniel W. Smith, Purdue University The authors of this work critically engage an aspect of Deleuze’s thought that, for the most part, has been neglected, and to understand better his “immanent metaphysics.” They also explore the consequences of such an engagement.

By Henry Rosemont Jr, emeritus, St. Mary’s College of Maryland

“Henry Rosemont’s book is by turns a passionate, eloquent, and honest account of a Confucian philosophy for today. It is not merely a sympathetic and well-researched study; it is also, I daresay, a spiritual and moral appropriation (or, as Roger Ames would put it, appreciation) of the core texts of classical Confucianism (including most importantly, but by no means exclusively, the Analects and the Mencius). Rosemont presents an intellectually impressive and often emotionally touching account of what is for him at the heart of Confucianism: an ancient role ethics that constitutes an important resource for addressing and alleviating the ills of the world we currently live in…. Against Individualism presents a comprehensive philosophical vision of Confucianism that challenges one of the major mainstream conceptual ghosts haunting not only contemporary philosophy, but mainstream discourse in all social spheres.”

New VAN GOGH AMONG THE PHILOSOPHERS Painting, Thinking, Being

Edited by David P. Nichols, Saginaw Valley State University

How can we understand what is truly at work in the art of Van Gogh, someone who rose from relative obscurity to become one of the most revered artists of all time? From Karl Jaspers and Martin Heidegger to Jacques Derrida and Michel Foucault, philosophers have not been immune to his magnetism. This volume brings Continental philosophical interpretations of Van Gogh into dialogue with one another to explore how for Van Gogh, art places human beings in their world, and yet in other ways displaces them, not allowing them to belong to that world.

Dean Kowalski argues that filmmakers can “do” philosophy when creating a fictional narrative film, utilizing a careful and extensive analysis of Joss Whedon’s fictive creations to establish this thesis. For the many admirers of Whedon’s fictive creations, the book offers one of the most comprehensive analyses of his corpus. Reprising many examples and dialogue passages from the far corners of the so-called “Whedonverse,” it offers illustrations of various philosophical theories, explains how those theories pertain, to relevant data points in Whedon’s oeuvre, and assesses whether, or to what extent, they have real-world application.

“Willemse stages a much-needed, original dialogue between Giorgio Agamben and Jacques Derrida on the question of the messianic. Willemse convincingly argues that the basic ingredients of such a dialogue are to be found in Agamben’s and Derrida’s reflections on law, life and writing. Thus, this important book shows how a reflection on the messianic goes to the heart of the philosophical commitments of present-day continental thought.” —Gert-Jan van der Heiden, Radboud University 2017 • 198 pages 978-1-4985-4411-5 • $90.00/ £60.00 • Hardback 978-1-4985-4412-2 • $85.00/ £54.95 • eBook

New CHIASMATIC ENCOUNTERS Art, Ethics, Politics

Edited by Kuisma Korhonen, University of Oulu; Arto Haapala, Sara Heinämaa, Kristian Klockars and Pajari Räsänen, all University of Helsinki

The concept of chiasm has played major role in continental philosophy, where it has referred to various phenomenological and hermeneutic structures of reversibility, intertwining, and encounter. Contributors analyze this central concept and its significance for contemporary cultural theory, discussing the work of major philosophers like Merleau-Ponty, Beauvoir, Habermas, Levinas, Derrida, and Deleuze. The book addresses also the chiasmatic crossing between ethics and politics— between the unconditional ethical responsibility and the always conditional political choices.

New NARRATIVE FAITH Dostoevsky, Camus, and Singer

By David Stromberg, Hebrew University of Jerusalem

David Stromberg engages with the dynamics of doubt and faith to consider how literary works with complex structures explore different moral visions. He describes a literary petite histoire that problematizes faith in two ways—both in the themes presented in the story, and the strategies used to tell that story— leading readers to doubt the narrators and their narratives. The study examines works by twentiethcentury authors who similarly intensify questions of faith through narrators that generate doubt.

DEFINING SPORT Conceptions and Borderlines

Edited by Shawn E. Klein, Arizona State University

“Defining Sport is not about the many ways the term ‘sport’ is used. Rather it is about sport as a concept, about the range of activities in the world that we unite under the idea of ‘sport’. The editor argues that it is through trying to define sport that we can come to understand these activities better and how they relate to other social spheres and human endeavors. The anthology is meant to inspire further thought and debate on just what sport is and what we can learn about ourselves through the study of sport.”

Any deep fan of The Who has spent plenty of time reading into the band’s Mod antecedents, the symbolism of violence in the destruction of their instruments on stage, Townshend’s simultaneous striving for the power and permanence of opera while insisting that pop music is ephemeral, and how Meher Baba has lain a continuing religious thread through Townshend’s musical ideas.” —David Simonelli,Youngstown State University Series: The Philosophy of Popular Culture 2016 • 256 pages 978-1-4985-1447-7 • $90.00 / £60.00 • Hardback 978-1-4985-1448-4 • $85.00 / £54.95 • eBook

AESTHETICISM, EVIL, HOMOSEXUALITY, AND HANNIBAL Taking Bryan Fuller’s television version of Hannibal “The Cannibal” Lecter as its main text—and taking Žižek-style illustrative detours into Malcolm in the Middle, Dark Knight Rises, Harry Potter, Interview with a Vampire, Dexter and more—this book marshals Walter Pater, Camille Paglia, Nietzsche, the Marquis de Sade, Kant and Plato, as well as Dante, Shakespeare, Milton, Blake, Baudelaire, Beckett, Wallace Stevens and David Mamet to argue that Fuller’s show is a deceptively brilliant advance of aestheticism, both in form and content—one that investigates how deeply art-for-art’s-sake are necessarily entwined with evil.

“As far as documentary film and philosophy are concerned, David Larocca has summoned a cloud of reliable witnesses and all the usual suspects, or so it seems. Once readers enter the critical conversations that these estimable writers provoke and sustain, the criteria for reliability and suspicion themselves become productively volatile, and that volatility will lead readers to surprising insights and reflections. From considerations of Plato to Cavell and well beyond, these memorable essays fruitfully explore both truth and make believe in documentary film, as well as the manifold challenges of discerning the elusive differences between them.”—Lawrence Rhu, University of South Carolina

Christopher Nolan has made a substantial impact on contemporary cinema through both avant garde films, and his contributions to major pop culture franchises. His most recent film, Interstellar, delivered the visual qualities and complex, thought-provoking plotlines his audience has come to expect. This volume collects sixteen essays that discuss various philosophical themes either represented within a particular film or characteristic of Nolan’s overall thematic vision across his cinematic oeuvre.

By Emmanouil Aretoulakis, Kapodistrian University of Athens

“Emmanouil Aretoulakis embraces controversy and conflict with courage by delving into the forbidden aesthetics of the images of terrorism, unraveling the ethical and a-moral implications of the Kantian feeling of pleasure that trumps the impotency of the awe and terror of the sublime. He proposes that along with empathy and humor, aesthetic judgement empowers the viewer or reader who survives as witness to horrific events rather than cowering in fear to their devastation. If scholars of terrorism wish to reflect on its spectacular images in a meaningful way, this book’s developing thesis will guide them through the multidisciplinary labyrinth.” —Julia Keefer, New York University 2016 • 182 pages 978-1-4985-1312-8 • $80.00 / £52.95 • Hardback 978-1-4985-1313-5 • $76.00 / £49.95 • eBook

Girard’s work is best known for his analysis of inter-subjective violence, but the authors here show the power of his thought to model deeply reciprocal, positive human relations.” —Mark Wallace, Swarthmore College 2017 • 348 pages 978-1-4985-5057-4 • $49.99 / £32.95 • Paperback 978-0-7391-6898-1 • $120.00 / £80.00 • Hardback (2014) 978-0-7391-6899-8 • $46.99 / £31.95 • eBook

“By reading Kafka through Foucault, Dungey illuminates and deepens Kafka’s striking claim that he was nothing but literature and could not and did not want to be anything else. In Dungey’s close analysis, Kafka’s life as a work of art becomes both an act of self-creation that contains its own dangers and possibilities and a form of resistance that contests the normalizing forces of society.” —P.E.

MATERIAL DISCOURSE—MATERIALIST ANALYSIS THE INNER VOICE IN GADAMER’S Approaches in Discourse Studies HERMENEUTICS Edited by Johannes Beetz and Veit Schwab, both University of Warwick

Material Discourse – Materialist Analysis explores the entanglement of material realities and discourse and shows how a materialist discourse analysis can be put into practice. A cognate concern for language and discourse, as well as materiality and materialism, can look back on a long tradition in the Social Sciences and Humanities. This book makes their relation an explicit focus. Located at the intersections of materialism and Discourse Studies, it highlights the materiality of discourse and the entanglement of matter and meaning. The essays collected in this volume are united by a rejection of static dichotomies such as discursive / material, language / materiality or material / immaterial. Rather than presenting materialism and Discourse Studies as distinct from one another, they are shown to be intimately entwined. The book brings together theoretical and empirical contributions from a whole range of disciplines, fields, and academic contexts in a truly transdisciplinary and global manner. 2017 • 200 pages 978-1-4985-5815-0 • $90.00 / £60.00 • Hardback 978-1-4985-5816-7 • $85.00 / £54.95 • eBook

By Andrew Fuyarchuk, Yorkville University

“This is a deeply read work that continues to build on Gadamer’s appropriation of the inner word from Christian theology. The book moves the theory forward in two innovative directions: It explores the analog concepts of inner voice and inner ear that were only suggested by Gadamer, and it develops numerous connections with scientific theory, especially evolutionary and cognitive science. In keeping with his emphasis on the aural dimension of the inner word, Fuyarchuk also brings Gadamer’s theory back to Heidegger’s concepts of the middle voice and attunement. The impressive range of interdisciplinary scholarship and the extended speculations on the inner word’s application to the aural dimensions of understanding will provide students of hermeneutics and language study in general a wealth of expanding connections and resources for further thought. ” —John Arthos, Indiana University 2017 • 282 pages 978-1-4985-4705-5 • $105.00 / £70.00 • Hardback 978-1-4985-4706-2 • $99.00 / £65.00 • eBook

By John Martis, Pilgrim Theological College

Intervervening in a lively debate in contemporary European philosophy, this book offers a radically revisioned account of the self subjected to experience. Patiently yet vigorously engaging JeanLuc Marion’s reading of selfhood in St Augustine, Martis reaches back deeply into the Western Philosophical tradition to propose a bold solution to the phemomenological problem of how a self can recognise an other, while remiaining itself. Insights from Descartes, Kant, Derrida, Blanchot, Romano, and others are brought together to undergird an account of a self that remains itself only in ceaseless loss to necessary incursions of the other: “I Welcome therefore I am.” 2017 • 194 pages 978-1-4985-4399-6 • $90.00 / £60.00 • Hardback 978-1-4985-4400-9 • $85.00 / £54.95 • eBook

PASSION IN PHILOSOPHY Essays in Honor of Alphonso Lingis

Edited by Randolph Wheeler, Towson University

“Lingis offers ideas, erudition, criticism, stories, but much more as well, nourishment from a life lived in depth, intensity, suffering and wonder. His writings render into a crackling American idiom the fascinating and provocative philosophies of Nietzsche, Heidegger, Merleau-Ponty, Levinas, Bataille, Foucault, and Deleuze, among others.” —Richard A. Cohen, author of Out of Control: Confrontations between Spinoza and Levinas

By Shawn Loht, Baton Rouge Community College

“Shawn Loht has broken new ground in bringing a Heideggerian way of thinking to philosophical film theory. He not only develops a rich phenomenological approach to cinematic engagement via Heidegger’s account of being-in-the-world but also offers an original perspective on the debate over the idea film as philosophy. With illuminating chapters exploring the films of Terrence Malick, Michael Haneke, and David Gordon Green, Loht’s book promises to rejuvenate phenomenological film theory by staging an admirably lucid philosophical encounter between Heidegger and cinema.” —Robert Sinnerbrink, Macquarie University This book uses the philosophy of Martin Heidegger as a framework for addressing key issues in the philosophy of film. It is the first singleauthor monograph that takes up Heidegger’s relevance to film. Principal topics addressed include the ontology of film and moving images; the phenomenological character of the viewer experience; film conceived as an art medium; and the function of films as vehicles for philosophical thought. 2017 • 220 pages 978-1-4985-1902-1 • $95.00 / £65.00 • Hardback 978-1-4985-1903-8 • $90.00 / £60.00 • eBook

This volume explores the many dimensions of the work of Joseph P. Fell. Drawing from continental sources such as Heidegger and Sartre as well as North American thinkers such as John William Miller, Fell has secured a place as an enduring and important thinker within the tradition of phenomenological thought. Fell’s critical development of these strands of philosophy has resulted in a provocative and original challenge to complacent dualism, skepticism, alienation, and nihilism.

Mediating Between Modes of Cognition in the Humanities and Sciences

Bringing Sartre to the Water’s Edge

A Return to a Sartrean View

By Jason Kido Lopez, University of Wisconsin, Madison

The contemporary literature on self-deception was born out of Jean-Paul’s work on bad faith—lying to oneself. As time has progressed, this conception has moved further and further away from a conception of self-deception that closely resembles Sartre’s conception of bad faith. In this book, Jason Kido Lopez argues that this is a problematic mistake and that we should return to thinking about self-deception in a Sartrean fashion: self-deception is when a person intentionally uses the strategies and methods of interpersonal deception on him- or herself.

By Matthew C. Ally, Borough of Manhattan Community College

“In a brilliant tour de force, Matthew Ally brings Sartre to bear on environmental thought. His masterfully structured work reads like a nimble essay. He captures our imagination, bringing the conceptual toolbox of humanist thought into play at a pond. Sartre at the water’s edge never turns into a Narcissus reflecting upon himself, rather, he finds his ‘integrative and openended philosophical method’ in a newly found freedom of water. Contingency, freedom, responsibility, solidarity, and liberation are revived in the experiential lack of gravity the pond provides. Ally is a story teller and a scientifically informed philosopher with an exquisite literary sensibility. He brings natural history writing back into philosophy, contemporizing a rich tradition of Thoreau and Rachel Carson.” —Irene J.

New PHENOMENOLOGY AND THE ARTS

Edited by A. Licia Carlson and Peter R. Costello, both Providence College

This collection develops the interplay between phenomenology as a historical movement and a descriptive method within Continental philosophy and the arts. The essays explore how the phenomenological method itself is a kind of artistic endeavor that mirrors what it approaches when it turns to describe paintings, dramas, literature, and music. From there, the book turns to an analysis and commentary on specific works of art within the visual arts, literature, music, and sculpture.

“This illuminating study not only offers an acutely suggestive rethinking of eternal return, now viewed less as a doctrine than as a deferral of all doctrine, but also gives a fresh and compelling account of Nietzsche’s importance for postwar French thought in general and of the urgency of Blanchot’s distinctive response to Nietzsche in particular.” —Leslie Hill, University of Warwick

Renaissance Women Aristocrats as Platonic Guardians

By Kevin W. Sweeney, emeritus, University of Tampa

Sweeny presents a philosophical analysis of all five stories in Sartre’s short-story collection. He argues that each of the five stories has its own philosophical idea or problem that serves as the context for the narrative. Sartre constructs each story as a reply to the philosophical issue in the context and as support for his position on that issue. In the opening story, “The Wall,” Sartre uses the Constant-Kant debate to support his view that the story’s protagonist is responsible for his ally’s death. Sweeny then analyzes the remaining stories, including “The Room,” “Erostratus,” In “Intimacy,” and “The Childhood of a Leader.” 2016 • 144 pages 978-1-4985-0936-7 • $75.00 / £49.95 • Hardback 978-1-4985-0937-4 • $71.00 / £47.95 • eBook

“Macke clearly ties together all that he has been quoting, questioning, and theorizing in a way that allows the reader to understand how each of the preceding chapters participates in his ultimate goal of inserting humanness into a field where academic and theoretical thinking has taken control, and offering an intelligent and much-needed inaugural study to inspire continual change in communicology today.”

RETHINKING THE ENLIGHTENMENT Between History, Philosophy, and Politics

—International Journal of Communication

Series: The FDUP Series in Communication Studies

Recent work by historians has now called into question many of the clichés that still dominate scholarly understanding of the Enlightenment’s literary, philosophical, and political culture. Yet this work has so far had little impact on the reception of the Enlightenment, its key players, debates, and ideas in the disciplines that most rely on its legacy, namely, philosophy and political science. Rethinking the Enlightenment makes the case for connecting new work in intellectual history with fresh understandings of ‘Continental’ philosophy and political theory. In doing so, this collection moves towards a critical self-understanding of the present.

ANTHROPOLOGY’S INTERROGATION OF PHILOSOPHY FROM THE EIGHTEENTH TO THE TWENTIETH CENTURY

By Fred Dallmayr, emeritus, University of Notre Dame

“Dallmayr’s prose is readable and clear. Though Heidegger’s influence is felt throughout the text, Dallmayr’s explanations make it deeply relevant and compelling. Through the author’s inspiring description of an active ‘letting be,’ readers will gain insight into a way out of the mindlessness of contemporary society…. Recommended.” —CHOICE

“Fred Dallmayr has written another remarkable book. Learned and scholarly, it is also clear and unpretentious in its language. Sweeping in its cultural concerns and references, it is also focused upon the most basic and simple enigmas of life.” —Dennis J.

“With ingeniously careful development Professor Duran convinces us that five names ought to be added to that of Margaret Cavendish as philosophers of the early modern period: Aphra Benn, Elizabeth I, Katharine Paar and Mary Sidney Herbert. A solid case is made that Plato happily would nod ‘yes’ to the question ‘is this a philosopher-Queen?’ Duran makes the case that each was queenly (if not Queen) and had the personal character and requisite philosophic acumen to successfully rule in a Republic-like ideal society.” — Mary Ellen Waithe, emerita, Cleveland State University

New AUGUSTINE AND KIERKEGAARD

Edited by Kim Paffenroth, Iona College; John Doody, Villanova University; and Helene Tallon Russell, Christian Theological Seminary

“This book is a collection of fifteen clearly written and penetrating essays on the relation between Augustine and Kierkegaard. Written by both philosophers and theologians, the authors include many wellknown scholars as well as some fresh and creative younger voices. Anyone interested in Kierkegaard or Augustine will learn much from this volume, which is a first-rate contribution to our understanding of both thinkers.” —C. Stephen Evans, Baylor University

By Jerome Fanning Marsden Carroll, University of Nottingham Anthropology’s Interrogation of Philosophy from the Eighteenth to the Twentieth Century

What did Johann Gottfried Herder mean when he proposed that philosophy be “reduced to anthropology”? In this book, Jerome Carroll draws on the epistemological, ontological, and methodological aspects and implications of anthropological holism to read the twentieth-century German tradition of philosophical anthropology through the lens of eighteenth-century writings on anthropology, which first arose as a response to the perceived inadequacies of mind-body dualism. The holist motivations for an anthropological standpoint then characterized the tradition throughout its history, including in Herder, Scheler, Gehlen, Blumenberg, and Taylor.

Aristotelian Reflections on the Operative Imperative

New

By Edward Engelmann, Bridgewater State University

WHAT IS CLASSICAL LIBERAL HISTORY?

Edited by Michael J. Douma, Georgetown University, and Phillip W. Magness, Berry College

This book demonstrates how the classical liberal tradition in historical writing persists to this day, but how it is often neglected and due for renewal. The book contrasts the classical liberal view on history with conservative, progressive, Marxist, and post-modern views. Each of the eleven chapters address a different historical topic, from the development of classical liberalism in nineteenth century America to the the history of civil liberties and civil rights that stemmed from this tradition. Authors give particular attention to the importance of social and economic analysis. 2017 • 270 pages 978-1-4985-3610-3 • $100.00 / £70.00 • Hardback 978-1-4985-3611-0 • $95.00 / £65.00 • eBook

HISTORY OF PHILOSOPHY

HISTORY OF PHILOSOPHY

ADORNO AND PHILOSOPHICAL MODERNISM The Inside of Things

By Roger S. Foster, Manhattan Community College

By Brian Lightbody, Brock University

“This study embraces a culturally broad view of what Roger S. Foster terms ‘philosophical modernism.’ He expands this discussion to consider literary modernism, focusing on such figures as Yves Bonnefoy, Robert Musil, and Virginia Woolf. The book as a whole, however, is carefully grounded in Adorno’s philosophy. Indeed, the author has mined the full corpus of Adorno’s work for this project, even incorporating detailed discussion of Adorno’s engagement with Heidegger….: Highly recommended.”

Brian Lightbody sheds light on Nietzsche’s most famous “esoteric” teaching by explaining what the will to power is and what it denotes. He demonstrates how will to power may be naturalized in an attempt to show that the doctrine is epistemically and empirically defensible. Finally, he uses will to power as a philological key of sorts to unlock Nietzsche’s philosophy as a whole by showing that his ontology, epistemology, and ethics are only properly understood once a coherent naturalized rendering of will to power is produced.

“This study offers an account of Thomas Aquinas’s conception of beauty…. Sevier begins with an examination of the psychological factors involved in aesthetic experience, which entails an appreciation of the complex interplay between desire and pleasure within the human subject. The author analyzes the objective features in the beautiful object—those essential ‘constituents’ (proportion, integrity, and clarity) that make particular beings so appealing to perceivers…. Sevier addresses the issue of whether Thomas considered beauty a separate transcendental property in relation to being, truth, and goodness.… Like its subject matter, this work is a model of proportion, integrity, and clarity. … Highly recommended.”

Readings of Plato’s Apology of Socrates Defending the Philosophical Life

“In this masterful work, which is the product of a lifetime of extensive learning, James Alexander Arieti illuminates the differences between the ancient Greek world and the world of the Hebrew Bible (and later Jewish commentary on the biblical texts)…. Arieti examines Greek and Hebrew attitudes towards all those things in which human life is enmeshed, from nature to politics, from family life to religion.” —Eleonore Stump, Saint Louis University

Contributors to this volume discuss a wide breadth of topics relevant to the Apology, including the literary images, the unfolding drama, the historical contexts, and the confrontation between philosophy and politics. They focus on the character of Socrates as the embodiment of philosophy, employing this as a starting point for exploring various themes exposed in the Apology. These include the relation of philosophy to democracy, rhetoric, politics, and society in general, as well as the overarching question of what comprises the philosophic life.

What sorts of things qualify as first principles of reasoning and what kind of justification for them can be offered? We think of principles like that of non-contradiction as first principles of reasoning. Laurence Bloom argues that Plato’s Republic, the first text that affords us a complete statement of the Principle of Non-contradiction, offers us a powerful, complex and detailed argument for taking form—specifically that of the good—as the first principle of both knowing and being.

“Joe Cimakasky provides a fascinating treatment of a truly timeless topic.

New CLASSICAL MYTH IN FOUR FILMS OF ALFRED HITCHCOCK By Mark William Padilla, Christopher Newport University

“One rarely finds a more exciting book on Hitchcock, or indeed on any movie director, than this one by Padilla.... The observations are detailed and perceptive. The classical themes Padilla finds are mostly from Homer and Virgil. The Farmer’s Wife brings in Hestia and the judgment of Paris; The Man Who Knew Too Much, the Eleusinian mysteries; Rebecca, Cupid and Psyche; Strangers on a Train, Hermes, Venus, Pan, and Hercules. Provocative and demanding, the book is invaluable, and it includes hundreds of footnotes and bibliographical references…. Highly recommended.”

Crotty explores Plato’s idea that the moral life consists in the founding of one’s own soul. This insight is central to the long argument of the Republic and, in particular, to the complex relation between the city and the human soul. This fruitful picture of the moral life, however, has not received the attention it deserves. As Crotty argues, Plato’s distinctive insight is that justice is above all a creative force.

Platonis aemulus and the Invention of Cicero

Plato’s Charmides and the Saving of Wisdom

By William H. F. Altman, independent scholar

PROFOUND IGNORANCE By David Lawrence Levine, Independent Scholar

“A thoughtful treatment of the dialogue from a particular perspective, and worth reading on that account.”

“Altman’s essays, as he explores Cicero’s hidden and open Platonism, are as engaging and stimulating as one might imagine. Few if any contemporaries have read as widely and deeply in Cicero’s writings. With objectivity but no pretended scholarly detachment, he brings his immense erudition to his personal engagement of Cicero. He finds himself in awe at Cicero’s integrity and achievement as a thinker, writer and political leader.” —Walter Nicgorski, University of Notre Dame “This is a book fizzing with energy, and full of learning of many sorts, from which any discriminating reader stands to gain.”— The Classical Review 2016 • 384 pages 978-1-4985-2711-8 • $100.00 / £70.00 • Hardback 978-1-4985-2712-5 • $95.00 / £65.00 • eBook

THE GUARDIANS IN ACTION Plato the Teacher and the Post-Republic Dialogues from Timaeus to Theaetetus By William H. F. Altman, independent scholar

“Altman does an admirable job of separating Plato from his later reception (i.e. he makes a very conscious attempt to disentangle Plato’s own views from subsequent Platonism) and the volume is particularly rich in terms of the range of topics treated and number of challenges posed to the commonly held view of Plato. Enlightening as it is to read the Platonic dialogues on their own, our understanding of them is certainly enhanced when they can be used to illuminate one another, and Altman supplies the reader with numerous examples of how this can function in the case of the dialogues under discussion.”

—Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews

“The Charmides is of all the Platonic dialogues the one that most immediately bears on our own contemporary political condition, the one that most directly illuminates the root problems of modernity…. Levine’s book shows what a Platonic dialogue is and what a reading of it can be.” —The St. John’s Review

New in PaperBACK A READING OF LUCRETIUS’ DE RERUM NATURA By Lee Fratantuono, Ohio Wesleyan University

“The cause of Lucretian scholarship is brilliantly served by the addition of this meticulously crafted volume to the expanding corpus on one of the most challenging and difficult of the ancient Latin poets. Those familiar with Fratantuono’s earlier volumes… will discover that the present title reinforces Fratantuono’s technique of verse-by-verse analysis and commentary, here with respect to Lucretius’s formidable De rerum natura…. Highly recommended. ” —CHOICE

“Fratantuono’s Reading of Lucretius will repay those who read it from cover to cover.” —Classical Journal

A PERSON AS A LIFETIME An Aristotelian Account of Persons

By Stephanie M. Semler, Northern Virginia Community College, Loudoun

Smeler’s central thesis is that we can derive a viable definition of persons from Aristotle’s work. The component parts of this definition are to be found in his writing on ethics and metaphysics. The structure of this working definition will be that of an entire lifetime. J.O. Urmson writes ‘to call somebody a eudaimon is to judge his life as a whole,’ indicating that a Greek, and therefore also an Aristotelian account of personhood would be a description of an entire human life.

New in PapeRBACK THE ROLE ETHICS OF EPICTETUS Stoicism in Ordinary Life

By Brian E. Johnson, Fordham University

“A strong and consistent reading of an ambiguous text is always welcome, and Johnson’s effort to think through what a role-based ethics might entail is of philosophical interest regardless of its fit with Epictetus’ ancient project. Readers at all levels will benefit, too, from Johnson’s consistently patient and clear manner of laying out the issues and from his meticulous references to related passages elsewhere in the corpus.” —Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews
