  • The Metamorphosisby Franz Kafka; Ian Johnston

    The Floating Press 2003; US$ 4.50

    The Metamorphosis begins almost comically. A man wakes up to find he has turned into an insect.

Most horrifying of all is his family's reaction to his metamorphosis and their final solution to the problem. more...

  • Rationality and Epistemic Sophisticationby Franz-Peter Griesmaier

    Lexington Books 2015; US$ 89.99

    For at least the past two decades, there has been intense interest in understanding how epistemic status is related to pragmatic concerns.

  • Amerika: The Missing Personby Franz Kafka

    Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group 2008; US$ 14.00

    Franz Kafka's diaries and letters suggest that his fascination with America grew out of a desire to break away from his native Prague, even if only in his imagination.
