What the Bee Knows
What the Bee Knows (August 2010)
Reflections on Myth, Symbol, and Story
P. L. Travers - Author
David Appelbaum - Foreword by

“The Sphinx, the Pyramids, the stone temples are, all of them, ultimately, as flimsy as London Bridge; our cities but tents set up in the cosmos. We pass. But what the bee knows, the wisdom that sustains our passing life—however much we deny or ignore it—that for ever remains.” —P. L. Travers

Born in 1899, P. L. Travers is perhaps best known as the author of the Mary...(Read More)
The Hairpin Tax
The Hairpin Tax (August 2010)
David Appelbaum - Author

“The fragmentary poems are of flight, written in the full fury of movement from a known habitat to one full of strangeness. The uncanny is their constant envoy. They enter into things at an obtuse angle and forget their origin, beyond good sense, beyond good taste and use of time … Perhaps a nomadic ear is able to make very subtle discrimination in text. Such an ear is at work here.” — from the Afterword

Jacques Derrida's Ghost
Jacques Derrida's Ghost (October 2008)
A Conjuration
David Appelbaum - Author

A spirited reading of Derrida’s view of ethics as transcendental and performative.

In Jacques Derrida’s Ghost, David Appelbaum explores three of Derrida’s favorite themes: the other, death, and the work of mourning. He shows how Derrida’s unique philosophy, mindful of ghosts, proposes a respectful attitude toward otherness—whether the “other” be corporeal or indeed ...(Read More)

Disruption (February 1996)
David Appelbaum - Author

This book is about the disruption of the intellect that awakens consciousness to its wholeness and purpose. When consciousness is fractured, its world-making powers are momentarily disrupted. In the gap, during which spatio-temporal categories of thought cease to apply, consciousness realigns with that which it is meant to serve. The moment of self-remembering--shocking, unique, and truthful--leaves a call to obedience in its wake. To refuse to resp...(Read More)
The Stop
The Stop (May 1995)
David Appelbaum - Author

This book is about the turn toward consciousness by which we pass from ignorance to knowledge. The stop is the spark of initiation that arouses our habitual inattentiveness, motivating us toward a higherunderstanding.
"This is one of the most brilliant, interesting, and utterly original books I have read. Its almost mystical conception of embodied perception is solidly founded in reason and evidence. It replaces Derrida's despairing notio...(Read More)
Everyday Spirits
Everyday Spirits (July 1993)
David Appelbaum - Author

"Appelbaum is creating a whole arena of inquiry by bringing serious and beautiful metaphysical ideas into relationship with everyday life and things. In its quiet way, it is a pioneering work, potentially quite important.
The freshness and combination of philosophy and poetry make it original, bold, and gentle." -- Jacob Needleman

"This is a book of remarkable tenderness and depth. It explores through the usually unnotic...(Read More)
Voice (July 1990)
David Appelbaum - Author

"Voice is fascinating; I could not put it down. The meaning of human speech to being human is a profound philosophical question. It is explored not only in its personal dimension, but also in its social and political dimensions. I regretted that the book was over when I reached the last page." -- Robert Ginsberg, Pennsylvania State University

Drawing on clues from Aristotle, Plato, Hobbes, Locke, Jacobson, Condillac, and Diderot, Ap...(Read More)
