GOD and Gods By Richard J. McQueen et al.
Paperback: $41.55
Prints in 3-5 business days
(1 Ratings)
The subject of God and Gods, based on the research topics conducted by Fernand D'Amico and Jacques Wisman, is proposed in this book as a themed walk through the passages of Scripture from the Old ... More > and New Testament. The biblical text (KJV) is presented deliberately devoid of additional comments to offer an immediate and direct perception of the selected track. The thematic reading of the biblical text opens to the reader as a fascinating experience that allows him to benefit in a short time, a surprising and rich picture of content. The truth of one God is radically opposed to polytheism. The route of the Scriptures can be read as the story of the affirmation of this truth. The religious freedom is an important achievement of modernity, but today a kind of rampant relativism threatens to lose the true meaning of the Biblical message.< Less
Prosophy. After Philosophy By Paolo-Ugo Brusa

Prints in 3-5 business days
Since a few decades we, the Westerners, have entered a post-philosophical age – the long struggle to achieve truth, method, logos, reason, etc. yielding to local narratives and reasonable... More > agreements on a neo-pragmatic basis. Relativism grants poor overall direction, however. In front of the global community of diversities, the judicious relativist faces the future as a rather blind journey. An all-encompassing grasp is still what one intelligent being is entitled to look for and should care about. The postmodern demise of philosophy leaves a void that we had better fill with a new overall conception, one open to pluralism while still eager for the comprehensive understanding long sought after by past masters. A basic convergence of all-human concepts over a seedbed of welcome difference is what prosophy keeps looking for.< Less
The Dawn of Day By Friedrich Nietzsche
eBook (ePub): $1.99
Nietzsche de-emphasizes the role of hedonism as a motivator and accentuates the role of a "feeling of power". His relativism, both moral and cultural, and his critique of Christianity also... More > reaches greater maturity. In Daybreak Nietzsche devoted a lengthy passage to his criticism of Christian biblical exegesis, including its arbitrary interpretation of objects and images in the Old Testament as prefigurements of Christ's crucifixion. The clear, calm and intimate style of this aphoristic book seems to invite a particular experience, rather than showing concern with persuading his readers to accept any point of view. He would develop many of the ideas advanced here more fully in later books. Early English translator J.M. Kennedy says of The Dawn, "This book was written for psychologists."< Less

Laughing at the Darkness: Postmodernism and Optimism in American Humour By Paul McDonald
Paperback: $14.30
Prints in 3-5 business days
Paul McDonald’s book is the second in the Humanities Ebooks Contemporary American Literature Series, edited by Christopher Gair and Aliki Varvogli. Given that postmodernism has been associated... More > with doubt, chaos, relativism and the disappearance of reality, it may appear difficult to reconcile with American optimism. Laughing at the Darkness demonstrates that this is not always the case. In examining the work of, among others, Sherman Alexie, Woody Allen, Douglas Coupland, Jonathan Safran Foer, Bill Hicks, David Mamet, and Philip Roth, McDonald shows how American humourists bring their comedy to bear on some of the negative implications of philosophical postmodernism and, in so doing, explore ways of reclaiming value. Paul McDonald is the author of three other HEB titles, The Philosophy of Humour, Reading Morrison's Beloved, and Reading Heller's Catch-22, all available from Lulu.< Less
