    The political changes of recent years and the problems of poverty, the environment and nationalism have led to calls for the establishment of a just world order.

    Taylor and Francis 2002; US$ 47.95

    Ethical disagreement is a fact of social life.

    Kurt Gödel?s Incompleteness Theorems sent shivers through Vienna?s intellectual circles and directly challenged Ludwig Wittgenstein?s dominant philosophy.

  • The Past Is a Moving Pictureby Janna Jones

    University Press of Florida 2012; US$ 69.95

    Almost all remnants of culture--past and present--degrade over time, whether sculpture or scrolls, painting or papyrus, books or clay tablets. Perhaps no major cultural record dissolves more rapidly than film, arguably the predominant medium of the twentieth century. Given the fragility of early nitrate film, much has already been lost. The fragments... more...
