  • Socrates in the Nineteenth and Twentieth Centuriesby Michael Trapp

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    Socrates, son of Sophroniscus, of Alopece is arguably the most richly and diversely commemorated - and appropriated - of all ancient thinkers. Already in Antiquity, vigorous controversy over his significance and value ensured a wide range of conflicting representations. He then became available to the medieval, renaissance and modern worlds in a provocative... more...

  • Milton's Secrecyby James Dougal Fleming

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    Scientific modernity treats interpretation as a matter of discovery. Discovery, however, may not be all that matters about interpretation. In Milton's Secrecy, J. D. Fleming argues that the poetry and prose of John Milton (1608-1674) are about the presentation of a radically different hermeneutic model. This is based on openness within language, rather... more...

In spite of the great and increasing interest in the writings of Schopenhauer in the English-speaking world,... more...

  • Volume 4: Kierkegaard and the Patristic and Medieval Traditionsby Jon Stewart

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

It covers an extraordinarily long period of time from Cyprian and Tertullian in the second century to Thomas à Kempis in the fifteenth.

  • Volume 3: Kierkegaard and the Roman Worldby Jon Stewart

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    While Kierkegaard's use of the Greek authors, particularly Plato and Aristotle, has attracted considerable attention over the years, his use of the Roman authors has, by contrast, remained sadly neglected. This neglect is somewhat surprising given the fact that Kierkegaard was extremely well read in Latin from his early youth when he attended the Borgerdyd... more...

  • Genealogy, Psychology and Identityby Paula Nicolson

    The popularity of amateur genealogy and family history has soared in recent times. Genealogy, Psychology and Identity explores this popular international pastime and offers reasons why it informs our sense of who we are, and our place in both contemporary culture and historical context. We will never know any of the people we discover from our histories... more...

  • Non-Representational Geographies of Therapeutic Art Makingby Candice Boyd

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 47.53

    Utilising non-representational theories and practice-led research methods, this book serves to reclaim therapeutics as ecological, spatial and material. It examines the sites and performances of a wide range of therapeutic art practices, including painting and drawing, dance movement therapy, fibre art, subterranean graffiti practice, and poetic permaculture.... more...

  • Collective Memory and the Historical Pastby Jeffrey Andrew Barash

    University of Chicago Press 2016; US$ 45.00

    There is one critical way we honor great tragedies: by never forgetting . Collective remembrance is as old as human society itself, serving as an important source of social cohesion, yet as Jeffrey Andrew Barash shows in this book, it has served novel roles in a modern era otherwise characterized by discontinuity and dislocation. Drawing on recent... more...
