  • Death Is the Mother of Beautyby Mark Turner

    Cybereditions 2000; US$ 12.95

    In this book, Mark Turner shows that the languages of literature and everyday life are different expressions of the same universal mechanisms of the mind.

  • Capitalism and Individualismby Tibor Machan

    Cybereditions 2000; US$ 15.95

    The purely economic view of individualism, homo economicus, cannot provide a basis for understanding human reality.

  • Tales and Teachings of the Buddhaby John Jones

    Cybereditions 2000; US$ 12.95

    This book reveals the vast fund of folkloric material embedded in popular Buddhism, beliefs and ideas which sometimes depart alarmingly from the orthodox tradition.

  • Tristram Shandyby Richard Lanham

    Cybereditions 2000; US$ 12.95

    Laurence Sterne's Tristram Shandy is one of the oddest comic novels in English literature. The Victorians were too morally earnest to see its meaning, while in our time critics have been too resolutely philosophical to grasp it. In contrast, Richard Lanham's introduction to Tristram Shandy combines clarity, wit, and grace. His account of the... more...
