A Solution to a Problem Inherited from Descartes
John T. Kearns - Author

Christoph Gutknecht - Author
Lutz J. Rolle - Author

Volosinov, Kenneth Burke, and Calvi...(Read More)
Magic, Rhetoric, and Literacy

An Eccentric History of the Composing Imagination
William A. Covino - Author

"William Covino has written a powerful and deeply engaging book. I am quite taken by his ability to make a subject like magic--a topic susceptible to either an unscholarly 'light' treatment or to an unfortunate academic dismissal--accessible to a broad audience and viable to scholars. I also especially admire the range of his concerns and the thoroughness with which he grounds his discussion in theory and history." -- George Kalamaras, Indiana Unive...(Read More)
