New title: Bertrand Russell’s Life and Legacy

We are pleased to announce the immediate availability of a new anthology on the life and work of Bertrand Russell, one of the most prominent intellectuals of the 20th century. Almost five decades after his death, there is still ample reason to pay attention to the life and legacy of Bertrand Russell. This is true not only because of his role as one of the founders of analytic philosophy, but also because of his important place in twentieth-century history as an educator, public intellectual, critic of organized religion, humanist, and peace activist.

Forthcoming: The Confusion between Art and Design by Tsion Avital

In this provocative monograph, Tsion Avital draws a fine line between art and design. Using nearly one hundred distinctions, contradistinctions and comparisons between art and design, Prof. Avital lays bare their differences. A new and coherent conceptual framework is proposed to distinguish them. This is a new kind of book: a heavily illustrated philosophical book useful for visual thinkers tasked with solving real-world problems. Radically original, analytically deep, and yet accessible, this book holds important lessons for all modern artists, designers, architects, critics and philosophers of art.

Forthcoming: Back to the Core - Rethinking Core Texts in Liberal Arts & Sciences Education in Europe

This edited volume examines liberal arts and sciences education by focusing on the unique way in which core texts – i.e. classic texts from philosophical, historical, literary or cultural traditions involving “the best that has been written” – meet the challenges of modern higher education in general and in Europe in particular. It covers topics such as the nature and aims of liberal arts and sciences education, how specific core texts promote the goals of liberal arts and sciences education, including the teaching methods, curricular reflections, and personal experiences of teaching core texts.
