    What Drawing and Painting Really Mean

    The Phenomenology of Image and Gesture, 1st Edition

    By Paul Crowther

    There are as many meanings to drawing and painting as there are cultural contexts for them to exist in. But this is not the end of the story.

  • The Routledge Handbook of the Philosophy of Evil book cover

    The Routledge Handbook of the Philosophy of Evil

    1st Edition

    Edited by Thomas Nys, Stephen de Wijze

    Why ought we concern ourselves with understanding a concept of evil? It is an elusive and politically charged concept which critics argue has no explanatory power and is a relic of a superstitious and primitive religious past. Yet its widespread use persists today: we find it invoked by politicians…

  • Limited Shakespeare: The Reason of Finitude book cover

    Limited Shakespeare

    The Reason of Finitude, 1st Edition

    By Julián Jiménez Heffernan

    Shakespeare’s poetic-dramatic worlds are inescapably limited. There is always, in his poems and plays, a force (a contingent drive, a pre-textual undertow, a rational-critical momentum, an ironic stance, the deflections of error) coercing plot and meaning to their end. By examining the work of…
