  • Living Speechby James Boyd White

    Princeton University Press 2009; US$ 29.95

    Language is our key to imagining the world, others, and ourselves. Yet sometimes our ways of talking dehumanize others and trivialize human experience.

Advertising reduces us to consumers, and clichés destroy... more...

International Law becomes, in this context, the meeting point where different legal cultures and different views of world intersect.... more...
