(P/B) FORGIVENESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0991-0535

Philosopher Vladimir Jankelevitch has only recently begun to receive his due from the English-speaking world, thanks in part to discussions of his thought by Jacques Derrida, Emmanuel Levinas, and Paul Ricoeur. His international readers have long valued his unique, interdisciplinary approach to philosophy's greatest questions and his highly readable writing style. Originally published in 1967, "Le Pardon", or "Forgiveness", is one of Jankelevitch's most influential works. In it, he characterizes the ultimate ethical act of forgiving as beh...

(P/B) OF SPIRIT
HEIDEGGER AND THE QUESTION
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0991-0209

"I shall speak of ghost, of flame, and of ashes." These are the first words of Jacques Derrida's lecture on Heidegger. It is again a question of Nazism-of what remains to be thought through of Nazism in general and of Heidegger's Nazism in particular. It is also "politics of spirit" which at the time people thought-they still want to today-to oppose to the inhuman. (From the publisher)...

(P/B) POLITICAL PHILOSOPHY AND THE CHALLENGE OF REVEALED RELIGION
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0991-0556

Heinrich Meier's guiding insight in Political Philosophy and the Challenge of Revealed Religion is that philosophy must prove its right and its necessity in the face of the claim to truth and demand obedience of its most powerful opponent, revealed religion. Philosophy must rationally justify and politically defend its free and unreserved questioning, and, in doing so, turns decisively to political philosophy. In the first of three chapters, Meier determines four intertwined moments constituting the concept of political philosophy as an ar...

Influences
Art, Optics, and Astrology in the Italian Renaissance
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0991-0557

Today few would think of astronomy and astrology as fields related to theology. Fewer still would know that physically absorbing planetary rays was once considered to have medical and psychological effects. But this was the understanding of light radiation held by certain natural philosophers of early modern Europe, and that, argues Mary Quinlan-McGrath, was why educated people of the Renaissance commissioned artworks centered on astrological themes and practices. Influences is the first book to reveal how important Renaissance artworks we...

(P/B) THE CRUEL RADIANCE
PHOTOGRAPHY AND POLITICAL VIOLENCE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0991-0463

In The Cruel Radiance, Susie Linfield challenges the idea that photographs of political violence exploit their subjects and pander to the voyeuristic tendencies of their viewers. Instead she argues passionately that looking at such images - and learning to see the people in them - is an ethically and politically necessary act that connects us to our modern history of violence and probes the human capacity for cruelty. Grappling with critics from Walter Benjamin and Bertolt Brecht to Susan Sontag and the postmoderns - and analyzing photogra...

(P/B) WOMEN FIRE AND DANGEROUS THINGS: WHAT CATEGORIES REVEAL
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0991-0282

ts publication should be a major event for cognitive linguistics and should pose a major challenge for cognitive science. In addition, it should have repercussions in a variety of disciplines, ranging from anthropology and psychology to epistemology and the philosophy of science... Lakoff asks: What do categories of language and thought reveal about the human mind? Offering both general theory and minute details, Lakoff shows that categories reveal a great deal.

(P/B) DID THE GREEKS BELIEVE THEIR MYTHS?
AN ESSAY ON THE CONSTITUTIVE IMAGINATION
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0991-0224

"[Veyne's] present book has some kinship with his sprightly theoretical work Comment on ecrit l'histoire; and he declares that its aim was to provoke reflection on the way our conception of truth is built up and changes over the centuries. . . . The style is brilliant and exhilarating."-- Jasper Griffin, Times Literary Supplement...

(P/B) PRECISION AND SOUL
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0991-0555

Best known as author of the novel The Man without Qualities, Robert Musil wrote these essays in Vienna and Berlin between 1911 and 1937. Offering a perspective on modern society and intellectual life, they are concerned with the crisis of modern culture as it manifests itself in science and mathematics, capitalism and nationalism, the changing roles of women and writers, and more. Writing to find his way in a world where moral systems everywhere were seemingly in decay, Musil strives to reconcile the ongoing conflict between functional rel...

(P/B) SHAKESPEARE'S FREEDOM
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0991-0554

Shakespeare lived in a world of absolutes - the absolute authority claimed for God over the world, for the holy scriptures over the faithful, monarchs over subjects, fathers over wives and children, men over women, the old over the young, and the gentle over the baseborn. With the elegance and verve for which he is well known, Stephen Greenblatt, author of the best-selling "Will in the World", shows that Shakespeare was strikingly averse to such absolute claims and constantly probed the possibility of freedom from them. Greenblatt explores...

(P/B) COSMOS
AN ILLUSTRATED HISTORY OF ASTRONOMY AND COSMOLOGY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0991-0308

For millennia humans have studied the skies to help them grow crops, navigate the seas, and earn favor from their gods. We still look to the stars today for answers to fundamental questions: How did the universe begin? Will it end, and if so, how? What is our place within it? John North has been examining such questions for decades. In Cosmos, he offers a sweeping historical survey of the two sciences that help define our place in the universe: astronomy and cosmology. Organizing his history chronologically, North begins by examining Paleo...

(P/B) LECTURES ON THE FOUNDATIONS OF MATHEMATICS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0991-0165

For several terms at Cambridge in 1939, Ludwig Wittgenstein lectured on the philosophical foundations of mathematics. A lecture class taught by Wittgenstein, however, hardly resembled a lecture. He sat on a chair in the middle of the room, with some of the class sitting in chairs, some on the floor. He never used notes. He paused frequently, sometimes for several minutes, while he puzzled out a problem. He often asked his listeners questions and reacted to their replies. Many meetings were largely conversation. These lectures were attend...

(P/B) TO DANCE IS HUMAN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0991-0552

Exploring dance from the rural villages of Africa to the stages of Lincoln Center, Judith Lynne Hanna shows that it is as human to dance as it is to learn, to build, or to fight. Dance is human thought and feeling expressed through the body: it is at once organized physical movement, language, and a system of rules appropriate in different social situations. Hanna offers a theory of dance, drawing on work in anthropology, semiotics, sociology, communications, folklore, political science, religion, and psychology as well as the visual and p...

(P/B) THE CONCEPT OF MIND
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0991-0171

This now-classic work challenges what Ryle calls philosophy's "official theory," the Cartesians "myth" of the separation of mind and matter. Ryle's linguistic analysis remaps the conceptual geography of mind, not so much solving traditional philosophical problems as dissolving them into the mere consequences of misguided language. His plain language and esstentially simple purpose place him in the traditioin of Locke, Berkeley, Mill, and Russell. (from the publisher)...

(P/B) THE WOUNDED STORYTELLER
BODY, ILLNESS, AND ETHICS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0991-0267

Since it was first published in 1995, "The Wounded Storyteller" has occupied a unique place in the body of work on illness. Both the collective portrait of a "remission society" of those who suffer from some type of illness or disability and a cogent analysis of their stories within a larger framework of narrative theory, Arthur W. Frank's book has reached a large and diverse readership, including the ill, medical professionals, and scholars of literary theory. Drawing on the work of authors such as Oliver Sacks, Anatole Broyard, Norman Co...

HISTORY OF POLITICAL PHILOSOPHY (P/B)
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0991-0218

Strauss and Cropsey's History of Political Philosophy has, since its original publication in 1963, provided an unequaled introduction to the thought of chief contributors to the Western tradition of political philosophy from classical Greek antiquity to the twentieth century. Written by experts on the various philosophers, this volume has set a standard of excellence for books in its field. The third edition differs significantly from its predecessors. The scope of its coverage has been expanded to include Thucydides and Xenophon in ancien...

(P/B) KISS OF THE YOGINI
"TANTRIC SEX" IN ITS SOUTH ASIAN CONTEXTS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0991-0191

Tantric practices bear to the "Tantric sex" currently being marketed so successfully in the West, David Gordon White has a simple answer: there is none. Sweeping away centuries of misunderstandings and misrepresentations, White returns to original texts, images, and ritual practices to reconstruct the history of South Asian Tantra from the medieval period to the present day. Kiss of the Yogini focuses on what White identifies as the sole truly distinctive feature of South Asian Tantra: sexualized ritual practices, especially as expressed i...

(P/B) FOR AND AGAINST METHOD
INCLUDING LAKATOS'S LECTURES ON SCIENTIFIC METHOD AND THE LAKATOS-FEYERABEND CORRESPONDENCE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0991-0143

The work that helped to determine Paul Feyerabend's fame and notoriety, Against Method, stemmed from Imre Lakatos's challenge: "In 1970 Imre cornered me at a party. 'Paul,' he said, 'you have such strange ideas. Why don't you write them down? I shall write a reply, we publish the whole thing and I promise you - we shall have a lot of fun.' " Although Lakatos died before he could write his reply, For and Against Method reconstructs his original counter-arguments from lectures and correspondence previously unpublished in English, allowing us...

(P/B) THE FORGE AND THE CRUCIBLE
ORIGINS AND STRUCTURES OF ALCHEMY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0991-0477

Primitive man's discovery of the ability to change matter from one state to another brought about a profound change in spiritual behavior. In The Forge and the Crucible, Mircea Eliade follows the ritualistic adventures of these ancient societies, adventures rooted in the people's awareness of an awesome new power. The new edition of "The Forge and the Crucible" contains an updated appendix, in which Eliade lists works on Chinese alchemy published in the past few years. He also discusses the importance of alchemy in Newton's scientific evol...
