2017/10/02 - New title: Bertrand Russell’s Life and Legacy

Bertrand Russell’s Life and Legacy [Hardback]

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.

Edited by Peter Stone (Trinity College Dublin, Ireland), the contributions to this volume represent a variety of perspectives as diverse as the nature of Russell, his life, and his work.

2017/03/09 - Forthcoming: The Confusion between Art and Design by Tsion Avital

The Confusion between Art and Design [Hardback, Premium Color]

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.


"...Even though the study of art and of design are theoretical, Dr. Avital has come closer than anyone to approaching them as if they were empirical. His clear and rigorous parsing of the issues in The Confusion Between Art and Design dares disagreement and will do much toward concluding the argument."

Prof. Mel Byars, Design Historian,
author of The Design Encyclopedia
