  • Excellent Beautyby Eric Dietrich

    Columbia University Press 2015; US$ 29.99

    Flipping convention on its head, Eric Dietrich argues that science uncovers awe-inspiring, enduring mysteries, while religion, regarded as the source for such mysteries, is a biological phenomenon. Just like spoken language, Dietrich shows that religion is an evolutionary adaptation. Science is the source of perplexing yet beautiful mysteries, however... more...

  • Explorations in Daoismby Ho Peng Yoke

    Taylor and Francis 2007; US$ 54.95

    The Daoist canon is the definitive fifteenth century compilation of texts concerning ritual, alchemical and meditation practices within Daoist religion. Many of these texts are undated and anonymous, so dating them is essential for a clear understanding of the development of Chinese alchemy, and the place of these texts in history. Ho Peng Yoke's... more...

  • Geology & Mineralogy, Considered with Reference to Natural Theology, Volume I, 1836by William Buckland

    Taylor and Francis 2004; US$ 400.00

    Moving away from his earlier belief in a short, catastrophic history of the Earth, this volume shows how Buckland envisages instead progressive change as the Earth gradually cooled as it was prepared for human occupation. Extinct creatures did not die out because they were poorly designed; God loved the dinosaurs and had adapted them to their various... more...

  • The Heavens Declareby Rodney Holder

    Templeton Press 2012; US$ 27.99

    One of the central themes of inquiry for Karl Barth, the twentieth-century Protestant theologian, was the notion of revelation. Although he was suspicious of natural theology (i.e. the seeking of evidence for God?s existence in the ordered structure of the world), recent scientific advances (notably in physics and cosmology) and the flourishing modern... more...

    Columbia University Press 2010; US$ 84.99

    Compiled by scholars at the court of Liu An, king of Huainan, in the second century B.C.E, The Huainanzi is a tightly organized, sophisticated articulation of Western Han philosophy and statecraft.
