Kierkegaard in Context: Essays in Honor of Jon Stewart
Publisher: Mercer University Press
Product Code: H981
ISBN: 9780881467239
Availability: In stock
Price: $45.00
The essays in this volume are inspired by the influential and multi-faceted work of Jon Stewart on the historical context and subsequent legacy of Søren Kierkegaard. Following the lead of Stewart, they provide a corrective to readings that treat Kierkegaard’s texts and the works of writers influenced by him in abstraction from the specific conversations, disputes, and trends in which they were situated.

The Kierkegaard-Girard Option
Publisher: Mercer University Press
Product Code: P592
ISBN: 9780881467246
Availability: In stock
Price: $30.00
In an age of sharply increasing cultural polarization that has led many people to consider retreat into enclaves of the like-minded, this book seeks to persuade its readers that we need better quality conversations across ideological camps, and that the writings of Søren Kierkegaard and René Girard provide very effective tools for facilitating such conversations. The writings of Kenneth Burke are also drawn on, as an important bridge figure who influenced Girard. All three thinkers can lead us to careful reflections on the psychological and social roots of violent behavior, which is a crucially important topic in need of deeper and broader understanding.

The Depths of Life: Paul Tillich’s Understanding of God
By author: Duane Olson
Publisher: Mercer University Press
Product Code: P594
ISBN: 9780881467260
Availability: In stock
Price: $25.00
Throughout his work, Paul Tillich critiqued the traditional monotheistic idea of God as a being alongside the world with definable properties, and he sought to replace this idea of God and the God-world relationship with another one. He regarded this replacement as vital for establishing a believable Christian theology, a relevant philosophy of religion, and a mutually beneficial understanding of the relationship between religion and contemporary culture. In this work of philosophy of religion geared to the non-expert, Olson explains Tillich's idea of God and the God-world relationship, showing how, for Tillich, God is both infused throughout the world and transcendent of it.

The Female Drama: The Philosophical Feminine in the Soul of Plato’s Republic
Publisher: Mercer University Press
Product Code: H987
ISBN: 9780881467437
Availability: In stock
Price: $35.00
Plato's most magisterial dialogue, the REPUBLIC, takes up the question "what is justice," and its central image is an imaginary city constructed in speech designed to aid in this inquiry. ...Like all of the images and arguments in the REPUBLIC, the Female Drama of the city in speech has meaning both for political and individual justice, but there has been no systematic inquiry into the central books of the REPUBLIC for their meaning for individual justice. That is the ambition of this book.

"From Reflection and Choice": The Political Philosophy of the Federalist Papers and the Ratification Debate

Availability: Not currently available. (Backorder policy)
Price: $24.00
The current era of intense partisan conflict is unlikely to be remembered for the excellence of its public discourse. Given this fact, we do well to remind ourselves that Americans were once capable of debating even the most important political questions in the popular press, and doing so at an extraordinarily high level. The debate over the ratification of the Constitution in 1787–1788 enlisted some of the country's greatest minds, and wrestled with issues fundamental to popular government in general and to the United States constitutional order in particular.
