The link between justice and climate change is becoming increasingly prominent in public debates on climate policy. This clear and concise philosophical introduction to climate justice addresses the hot topic of climate change as a moral challenge.

The Undying Fire

The Undying Fire by H. G. Wells"The Undying Fire" is a theological fantasy novel written by H. G. Wells, first published in 1919. Job Huss is a modern man who is struggling to come to terms with the fact that his life is falling apart. Unbeknownst to him, God and Satan are in agreement that the man's ancestor, the Biblical Job, was not put though a stern enough of a test, and contrive to have a rematch of their celestial game of chess. Herbert George Wells (1866 - 1946) was a prolific English writer who wrote in a variety of genres, including the novel, politics, history, and social commentary. Today, he is perhaps best remembered...

Seeing Things as They Are: G. K. Chesterton and the Drama of Meaning

Seeing Things as They Are: G. K. Chesterton and the Drama of Meaning by Duncan ReyburnThe jovial journalist, philosopher, and theologian G. K. Chesterton felt that the world was almost always in permanent danger of being misjudged or even overlooked, and so the pursuit of understanding, insight, and awareness was his perpetual preoccupation. Being sensitive to the boundaries and possibilities of perception, he was always encouraging his audience to find a clear view of things. His belief was that it really is possible, albeit in a limited way, to see things as they are. This book, which marries Chesterton's unique perspective with the discipline of philosophical hermeneutics,...

Wealth of Persons: Economics with a Human Face

Wealth of Persons: Economics with a Human Face by John McNerneyThomas Piketty's Capital in the Twenty-First Century initiated a great debate not just about inequality but also regarding the failures found in the economic models used by theoreticians and practitioners alike. Wealth of Persons offers a totally different perspective that challenges the very terms of the debate. The Great Recession reveals a great existential rift at the core of certain economic reflections, thereby showing the real crisis of the crisis of economics. In the human sciences we have created a kind of "Tower of Babel" where we cannot understand each other any longer. The "breakdowns"...

A History and Critique of Methodological Naturalism: The Philosophical Case for God's Design of Nature

A History and Critique of Methodological Naturalism: The Philosophical Case for God's Design of Nature by Joseph B. Onyango OkelloMethodological naturalism is the thesis that only natural features can be factored into any legitimate explanation. Moreover, the thesis contends, any attempt to explain natural phenomena by appealing to supernatural features is unscientific and, therefore, illegitimate. This book argues that nothing inherently problematic afflicts possible appeals to supernatural agency in the attempt to explain select phenomena in nature. Reputable philosophers of the ancient and medieval periods, as well as prominent scientists of the early modern era, invoked supernatural agency in their attempts to understand...

The End of the West and Other Cautionary Tales

The End of the West and Other Cautionary Tales by Sean MeighooMost historical accounts take it for granted that the guiding principles of the Western tradition—reason, progress, and freedom—have been passed down directly from ancient Greece to modern Western society. Today, many commentators maintain that the Western tradition is fast approaching its end as it becomes more and more integrated with non-Western cultures. But what if we are witnessing something else entirely—not the end of the West but rather another historical mutation of the idea of the West?

This groundbreaking critique shows that whether the West is hailed as the source of all historical...

Nirvana: The Last Nightmare: Learning to Trust in Life

Nirvana: The Last Nightmare: Learning to Trust in Life by OshoNirvana has become an idealized word associated with the juxtaposition of a cult rock celebrity who died before his time and a vague new age version of Eastern religion. An altered state to be hoped for, but likely unattainable, reinforcing that all too familiar uneasiness associated with never being able to have what we truly desire in life.

Osho masterfully brings this internal state of tension to the surface and through the use of five beautiful Zen stories examines, unravels and reveals the meaning of nirvana. By absorbing without interpreting, making a decision without worrying if it is...

A Philosopher at the Admiralty

A Philosopher at the Admiralty by Peter JohnsonThis book is volume one of a two-part series (volumes sold separately). Taken together, the two volumes of A Philosopher at War examine the political thought of the philosopher and archaeologist, R.G. Collingwood, against the background of the First and Second World Wars. Collingwood served in Admiralty Intelligence during the First World War and although he was not physically robust enough to play an active role in the Second World War, he was swift to condemn the policies of appeasement which he thought largely responsible for bringing it about. The author uses a blend of political philosophy,...

The Realist Tradition and Contemporary International Relations

The Realist Tradition and Contemporary International Relations by W. David Clinton

The tradition in international relations theory known as realism has often been associated with the Cold War. The contributors to this intriguing volume argue, however, that realism remains a profound and relevant perspective on contemporary international politics. They point out that classical realism is based on concepts that were elucidated long before the Cold War began and are not confined by its boundaries. Further, they believe that insights of the realist tradition can provide valuable guidance in our contemporary world.
