  • A Wittgensteinian Way with Paradoxes
    A Wittgensteinian Way with Paradoxes (English, Hardback) Rupert Read

    A Wittgensteinian way with paradoxes tackles some of the classic philosophical paradoxes that have puzzled philosophers over the centuries and explores how they can be dissolved using the 'therapeutic' method of Wittgenstein, according to the 'resolute' reading of the latter's work. The book shows how, by contrast, we should give more serious consideration to real, 'lived paradoxes', some of which can be harmful psychically, morally or politically, but others of which can be beneficial.

  • William Blake's Religious Vision
    William Blake's Religious Vision (English, Paperback) Jennifer G. Jesse

She argues that, once we collate the different messages he constructed for each of his target audiences, we find him advocating a system that would have been recognized by his contemporaries as Wesleyan in character.
