  • Unbedingte Wahrheit und endliche Vernunftby Richard Schaeffler

    Springer Fachmedien Wiesbaden 2016; US$ 27.13

    Was ist der Mensch? Immanuel Kant rückte diese Frage in den Mittelpunkt der gesamten Philosophie; er zählte sie zu den vier philosophischen Leitfragen, auf die unsere Vernunft vordringlich eine Antwort sucht.

    The name Friedrich Nietzsche has become synonymous with studies in political power.

  • Religion and Atheismby Anthony Carroll; Richard Norman

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 39.95

    Arguments between those who hold religious beliefs and those who do not have been at fever pitch.

  • Paul Ricoeur's Hermeneutics and the Discourse of Mark 13by Peter C. de Vries

    Lexington Books 2016; US$ 79.99

    This book uses the phenomenological interpretive approach of Paul Ricoeur to shed new light on New Testament eschatological expectation. Peter C. de Vries argues for a metaphorical reading of the apocalyptic discourse of Mark 13, based upon neither the author?s intention nor the reader?s reception but latent meaning present in the text itself. more...
