  • Living Speechby James Boyd White

    Princeton University Press 2009; US$ 32.95

    Language is our key to imagining the world, others, and ourselves. Yet sometimes our ways of talking dehumanize others and trivialize human experience. In war other people are imagined as enemies to be killed. The language of race objectifies those it touches, and propaganda disables democracy. Advertising reduces us to consumers, and clichés destroy... more...

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 185.00

    At least since plato and Aristotle, thinkers have pondered the relationship between philosophical arguments and the "sophistical" arguments offered by the Sophists -- who were the first professional lawyers.

    Springer Netherlands 2008; US$ 149.00

    Oxford University Press 2013; US$ 109.99

This new edition represents... more...
