  • Etiam Realis Scientiaby Caroline Gaus

    BRILL 2008; US$ 130.00

    Research on the medieval doctrine of the transcendentals is characterized by one debate: its characteristic peculiarity vs its structural correspondence to the modern concept of transcendentality. This study on Peter Aureol's ( 1322) doctrine of transcendentals offers a contribution to that discussion. more...

    ABC-CLIO 1993; US$ 31.95

    This study examines the development of Marxist-Leninist ideology in the U.S.S.R. from its origins to the collapse of the Soviet regime. Alfred Evans argues that Soviet Marxism-Leninism was subject to significant adaptation under various leaders, contrary to the widespread impression that official Soviet ideology remained static after Stalin. While... more...

  • Scientific Development and Misconceptions Through the Ages: A Reference Guideby Robert Krebs

    ABC-CLIO 1999; US$ 74.00

    The evolution of science through the ages has often been marred by people's misconceptions. From pre-historic times, when myths played a major role in people's lives, to present-day debates concerning the environment, people have sought ways to explain the world around them and have often come up with incorrect answers. Science has grown through the... more...

  • The Verge of Philosophyby John Sallis

    University of Chicago Press 2009; US$ 25.00

    The Verge of Philosophy is both an exploration of the limits of philosophy and a memorial for John Sallis?s longtime friend and interlocutor Jacques Derrida. The centerpiece of the book is an extended examination of three sites in Derrida?s thought: his interpretation of Heidegger regarding the privileging of the question; his account of the... more...

  • Alpha Betaby John Man

    Transworld 2010; US$ 12.68

    The idea behind the alphabet - that language with all its wealth of meaning can be recorded with a few meaningless signs - is an extraordinary one. So extraordinary, in fact, that it has occurred only once in human history: in Egypt about 4000 years ago. Alpha Beta follows the emergence of the western alphabet as it evolved into its present form,... more...

  • Specters of Marxby Jacques Derrida

    Taylor and Francis 2012; US$ 29.95

  • Derrida: A Very Short Introductionby Simon Glendinning

    OUP Oxford 2011; US$ 7.99 US$ 6.87

    Simon Glendinning explores Jacque Derrida's work, from his engagement with the history of metaphysics to his views on law and justice and ethics and politics. Confronting and refuting claims that Derrida was an irresponsible 'postmodernist' or 'nihilist' he instead reveals Derrida's significant contributions to philosophy. more...

  • Mad for Foucaultby Lynne Huffer

    Columbia University Press 2009; US$ 29.99

    Michel Foucault was the first to embed the roots of human sexuality in discipline and biopolitics, therefore revolutionizing our conception of sex and its relationship to society, economics, and culture. Yet over the past two decades, scholars have limited themselves to the study of Foucault's History of Sexuality, volume 1 paying lesser attention... more...

  • Crossing Horizonsby Shlomo Biderman; Ornan Rotem

    Columbia University Press 2008; US$ 64.99

    In this book, Shlomo Biderman examines the views, outlooks, and attitudes of two distinct cultures: the West and classical India.
