  • Horrorismby Adriana Cavarero; William McCuaig

    Columbia University Press 2008; US$ 24.99

    Words like "terrorism" and "war" no longer encompass the scope of contemporary violence.

  • The Man Who Believed He Was King of Franceby Tommaso di Carpegna Falconieri; William McCuaig

    University of Chicago Press 2009; US$ 18.00

    Replete with shady merchants, scoundrels, hungry mercenaries, scheming nobles, and maneuvering cardinals, The Man Who Believed He Was King of France proves the adage that truth is often stranger than fiction—or at least as entertaining. The setting of this improbable but beguiling tale is 1354 and the Hundred Years’ War being waged... more...

  • The Future of Religionby Gianni Vattimo; Richard Rorty; Santiago Zabala; William McCuaig

    Columbia University Press 2005; US$ 22.99

    Though coming from different and distinct intellectual traditions, Richard Rorty and Gianni Vattimo are united in their criticism of the metaphysical tradition.

They urge that the rejection of metaphysical... more...

  • Not Being Godby Gianni Vattimo; Piergiorgio Paterlini; William McCuaig

    Columbia University Press 2009; US$ 19.99

    Gianni Vattimo, a leading philosopher of the continental school, has always resisted autobiography. But in this intimate memoir, the voice of Vattimo as thinker, political activist, and human being finds its expression on the page.

  • Christianity, Truth, and Weakening Faithby Gianni Vattimo; Rene Girard; Pierpaolo Antonello; William McCuaig

    Columbia University Press 2010; US$ 19.99

    The debate over the place of religion in secular, democratic societies dominates philosophical and intellectual discourse. These arguments often polarize around simplistic reductions, making efforts at reconciliation impossible. Yet more rational stances do exist, positions that broker a peace between relativism and religion in people's public, private,... more...

  • The Responsibility of the Philosopherby Gianni Vattimo; Franca D'Agostini; William McCuaig

    Columbia University Press 2010; US$ 18.99

    Over the course of his career, Gianni Vattimo has assumed a number of public and private identities and has pursued multiple intellectual paths. He seems to embody several contradictions, at once defending and questioning religion, critiquing and serving the state, yet the diversity of his life and thought form the very essence of, as he sees it,... more...

  • Slow Foodby Carlo Petrini; William McCuaig; Alice Waters

    Columbia University Press 2003; US$ 16.99

    Slow Food is poised to revolutionize the way Americans shop for groceries, prepare and consume their meals, and think about food.
