In Adventures in the Spirit, respected and influential theologian Philip Clayton argues that two major intellectual movements of our day-panentheism and emergence-are converging and that together they offer exciting new vistas for theological reflection. On the one hand, over the last decades many theologians have been re-conceiving the God-world relation panentheistically, affirming a radical indwelling of God within the world and the world within God. On the other hand, scientists have begun to abandon the reductionist ideology that characterized much of the modern period, with a new emphasis on emergence. Their study of how new, novel structures and entities arise throughout the evolutionary process yields a much more open-ended, holistic vision of reality, Clayton argues.
Turns out shooting a Pinkerton is a crime—even if he is a werewolf. Book 2 in the Otherworld Outlaws series, an action-packed romp through the Wild West, loaded with living myths, dark magic, and bloodthirsty monsters aplenty. On the run from US marshals, Lula and her motley crew—Hattie, Toxicore, and Uncle Paddy, lately resurrected as a cat—head for Deadwood. Lula hopes to find Dagda's cauldron before the Morrígan or Brigid does, but sinister crows, diminutive dragons, and folks dropping dead from the unusual illness of being bled dry are just a few of the issues hindering her search. And now she has a bigger problem: her face is on every wanted poster from the Dakota Territories to Boston. Lula’s uncle once told her she was as pretty as a picture, but this isn’t quite the same thing. To clear her name, she would have to convince the law that magic and fairies are just as real as poker and horses. Not likely to happen. With her enemies closing in, she best find that cauldron before the law or the warring queens of the Tuatha Dé Danann find her. But finding the cauldron and taking it are two different things… especially when its monstrous ancient guardian has other ideas.

Repositions Bachelard as a critical and integral part of contemporary continental philosophy. Like Schelling before him and Deleuze and Guattari after him, Gaston Bachelard made major philosophical contributions to the advancement of science and the arts. In addition to being a mathematician and epistemologist whose influential work in the philosophy of science is still being absorbed, Bachelard was also one of the most innovative thinkers on poetic creativity and its ethical implications. His approaches to literature and the arts by way of elemental reverie awakened long-buried modes of thinking that have inspired literary critics, depth psychologists, poets, and artists alike. Bachelard’s extraordinary body of work, unduly neglected by the English-language reception of continental philosophy in recent decades, exhibits a capacity to speak to the full complexity and wider reaches of human thinking. The essays in this volume analyze Bachelard as a phenomenological thinker and situate his thought within the Western tradition. Considering his work alongside that of Schelling, Husserl, Bergson, Buber, Heidegger, Merleau-Ponty, Gadamer, Deleuze, and Nancy, this collection highlights some of Bachelard’s most provocative proposals on questions of ontology, hermeneutics, ethics, environmental politics, spirituality, and the possibilities they offer for productive transformations of self and world. Eileen Rizo-Patron is Research Associate at the Center for Philosophy, Interpretation, and Culture at Binghamton University, State University of New York. She is the coeditor (with Richard Kearney) of Traversing the Heart: Journeys of the Inter-religious Imagination and the translator of Bachelard’s Intuition of the Instant. Edward S. Casey is Distinguished Professor of Philosophy at Stony Brook University, State University of New York. He is the author of many books, including The Fate of Place: A Philosophical History. Jason M. Wirth is Professor of Philosophy at Seattle University. His books include Schelling’s Practice of the Wild: Time, Art, Imagination, also published by SUNY Press.

The book investigates the theme of Modernism (1920-1960 and its epigones) as an integral part of tangible and intangible cultural heritage which contains the result of a whole range of disciplines whose aim is to identify, document and preserve the memory of the past and the value of the future. Including several chapters, it contains research results relating to cultural heritage, more specifically Modernism, and current digital technologies. This makes it possible to record and evaluate the changes that both undergo: the first one, from a material point of view, the second one from the research point of view, which integrates the traditional approach with an innovative one. The purpose of the publication is to show the most recent studies on the modernist lexicon 100 years after its birth, moving through different fields of cultural heritage: from different forms of art to architecture, from design to engineering, from literature to history, representation and restoration. The book appeals to scholars and professionals who are involved in the process of understanding, reading and comprehension the transformation that the places have undergone within the period under examination. It will certainly foster the international exchange of knowledge that characterized Modernism
