<p>In this study, Lynne Moss Bahr explores the concept of temporality as central to Jesus's proclamation of the Kingdom of God.

The Slow Philosophy of J. M. Coetzee【電子書籍】[ Dr Jan Wilm ]

<p>In <em>The Slow Philosophy of J.M. Coetzee</em> Jan Wilm analyses Coetzee's singular aesthetic style which, he argues, provokes the reader to read his works slowly. The effected 'slow reading' is developed into a method specifically geared to analyzing Coetzee's singular oeuvre, and it is shown that his works productively decelerate the reading process only to dynamize the reader's reflexion in a way that may be termed philosophical. Drawing on fresh archival material, this is the first study

Showing Off!A Philosophy of Image【電子書籍】[ Dr Jorella Andrews ]

<p>Drawing on art, media, and phenomenological sources, <em>Showing Off!: A Philosophy of Image</em> challenges much recent thought by proposing a fundamentally positive relationship between visuality and the ethical.
