OF GRAMMATOLOGY

By Derrida, Jacques

Baltimore: John Hopkins University Press. Fine. 1997. Corrected Edition. Paperback. 0801858305 . Translated by Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak, a fine copy. Jacques Derrida's revolutionary theories about deconstruction, phenomenology, psychoanalysis, and structuralism, first voiced in the 1960s, forever changed the face of European and American criticism. The ideas in De la grammatologie sparked lively debates in intellectual circles that included students of literature, philosophy, and the humanities, inspiring these students to ask questions of their disciplines that had previously been considered improper. Thirty years later, the immense influence of Derrida's work is still igniting controversy, thanks in part to Gayatri Spivak's translation, which captures the richness and complexity of the original. This corrected edition adds a new index of the critics and philosophers cited in the text and makes one of contemporary criticism's most indispensable works even more accessible and usable. ; 230 x 150mm; xc, 360 pages .

THE GOD DELUSION

THE GOD DELUSION

By Dawkins, Richard

Bantam Press. Very Good+. 2006. Paperback. 0593058259 . While Europe is becoming increasingly secularized, the rise of religious fundamentalism, whether in the Middle East or Middle America, is dramatically and dangerously dividing opinion around the world. In America, and elsewhere, a vigorous dispute between 'intelligent design' and Darwinism is seriously undermining and restricting the teaching of science. In many countries religious dogma from medieval times still serves to abuse basic human rights such as women's and gay rights. And all from a belief in a God whose existence lacks evidence of any kind. Dawkins attacks God in all his forms. He eviscerates the major arguments for religion and demonstrates the supreme improbability of a supreme being. He shows how religion fuels war, foments bigotry and abuses children. (back panel blurb) ; 235 x 150mm; [x], 406 pages .

MERE THEOLOGY A Guide to the Thought of C. S. Lewis

By Vaus, Will

Intervarsity Press. Fine. 2004. 1st Edition. Paperback. 1844740269 . A fine copy, What did C. S. Lewis believe about God, Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, heaven, hell, creation, the fall, the forgiveness of sins, marriage and divorce, war and peace, the church and sacraments, masculinity and femininity? Lewis was not a professional theologian, but anyone who has read his writings - whether fiction or nonfiction, essays or correspondence - knows that profoundly Christian convictions permeate them all. The more one reads, the more it becomes clear that Lewis could write with clarity and simplicity while preserving theological accuracy because he was well informed and thoroughly grounded in the Christian faith. Will Vaus has masterfully brought together Lewis's thought from throughout his voluminous writings to provide us a full-orbed look into his beliefs on twenty-five Christian themes. This book gives us not only a comprehensive view of Lewis's theological convictions but also guidance and encouragement for our own spiritual journeys towards the God whom Lewis found so real, personal and present. ; 230 x 150mm; 266 pages .
