FORTHCOMING Prophetic Politics Between You and I
Emmanuel Levinas and the Sanctification of Suffering Dialogical Phenomenology

PhiliP J. harold
Prophetic Politics highlights the relevance of the phenomenological tradition to contemporary ethical and political thought—a longstanding goal of the series—while also making a significant and original contribution to Levinas scholarship.
No. 37 336 pages, cloth $60.00

Beata StawarSka
Classical phenomenology has suffered from an individualist bias and a neglect of the communicative structure of experience, especially the phenomenological importance of the addressee, the inseparability of I and You, and the nature of the alternation between them. Beata Stawarska remedies this neglect by bringing to bear relevant contributions, such as sociolinguistics and developmental psychology, as well as the dialogic tradition in philosophy.
No. 36 240 pages, cloth $55.00

Kant and the Role of Pleasure in Moral Action
iain P. d. MorriSSon
“Iain Morrisson’s book is an exemplar of up-to-date and lucid Kant scholarship. Furthermore, it is a book from which non-historians of early modern philosophy would learn as well, since the monograph provides numerous insights that go beyond exegetical questions concerning Kant’s corpus.” —Metapsychology Online Reviews
No. 35 240 pages, cloth $49.95
