Making Sense in an Age of Absurdity
Brent C. Sleasman

The life and work of Albert Camus provides insight into how to navigate through an absurd historical moment.

Putting Ethics First

An Existential Reading of the Confucian Analects

Andrew Zhonghu Yan
ISBN: 9781604977530

In this existential reading of the Analects, the author takes Paul Tillich as an omnipresent dialogical partner because his existential theology was at one time very influential in the West and currently very popular in Chinese academia. The study's most important contribution is how it reveals the religious or theological dimension of the Confucian Analects. Read More..

Individual Autonomy and Responsibility in Late Imperial China

Paolo Santangelo
ISBN: 9781621965497

“A timely masterpiece … A major strength of the book is its comparative perspective.

Philosophy, Art, and the Specters of Jacques Derrida

Gray Kochhar-Lindgren
ISBN: 9781604977882

Although there is a significant literature on the philosophy of Jacques Derrida, there are few analyses that address the deconstructive critique of phenomenology as it simultaneously plays across range of cultural productions including literature, painting, cinema, new media, and the structure of the university. Using the critical figures of “ghost” and “shadow”—and initiating a vocabulary of phantomenology—this book traces the implications of Derridean “spectrality” on the understanding of contemporary thought, culture, and experience.

Plato on Women:

Revolutionary Ideas for Gender Equality in an Ideal Society
Harald Haarmann
ISBN: 9781604979183

What has been produced up to the present regarding Plato's positions on the agenda of gender are disparate studies whose scope falls short of the whole range of angles from which Plato himself approached the issues, and the study of gender issues in Plato has remained unsystematic so far. In this book, Harald Haarmann provides the first systematic analysis of Plato's positions on gender and the role of women in an ideal society. Read More..

Plato’s Sophia:

His Philosophical Endeavor in Light of Its Spiritual Currents and Undercurrents
Harald Haarmann
ISBN: 9781604979633

When we maintain the modern separation of the philosophical from the spiritual and neglect the spiritual currents, our comprehension of Plato's intentions as manifested in his philosophical discourse remains greatly obscured. This study aims at achieving a balance. Read More..
