    Springer 2014; US$ 129.00

    This book proposes that the highest expression of ethics is an aesthetic.

  • Magic and Lossby Virginia Heffernan

    Simon & Schuster 2015; US$ 13.99

    Just as Susan Sontag did for photography and Marshall McLuhan did for television, Virginia Heffernan (called one of the ?best living writers of English prose?) reveals the logic and aesthetics behind the Internet.

  • Tao and Trinityby Scott Austin

    Palgrave Macmillan 2014; US$ 45.00

    The Chinese Tao and the Western Trinity have a fundamental unity of theme: the unity of opposites.
