New Titles for 2018

The Business of Life and Death, Vol.2

The Business of Life and Death, Volume Two:
Politics, Law, and Society

by Giorgio Baruchello

Paperback, $29.95 USD. Purchase from Amazon

With patient logic, comprehensive research, a courageous sense of purpose, and indeed a gentle sense of humour, this volume of Baruchello’s essays continues the work of John McMurtry, and fills in the unacknowledged missing pieces in the work of Martha Nussbaum, Hans Jonas, and Arthur Fridolin Utz, among others. Baruchello lays bare the frightening reality of how capital has controlled our understanding of knowledge, ethics, and meaning, to the detriment of the life-flourishing of peoples and environments. Yet his argument remains optimistic: he shows how the power of capital can be escaped, and how the life-ground of human goodness can replace it.


An Economy of Words

An Economy of Words

The Collected Poems of Bob Myers

Paperback, $19.95. Purchase from Amazon.

From the Author's Preface: “I am not a poet. I make that clear in the first entry. I am by profession a teacher who loves to read and teach poetry and finds great pleasure in writing poetry to please myself and maybe my family and friends. In this collection you will read about my faith and some principles I embrace, about family, friends and people encountered, about ordinary things and ordinary events that pepper all our lives.”


The Business of Life and Death, Vol.1

The Business of Life and Death, Volume One:
Values and Economies

by Giorgio Baruchello

Paperback, $29.95 USD. Purchase from Amazon.

As Descartes did for epistemology and Lévinas did for ethics, Baruchello places social and political philosophy as the new ‘first philosophy’. His research in the intersecting fields of economics, power politics, knowledge, and reality, presented here and in The Business of Life and Death Volume 2: Politics, Law, and Society, continues the work of John McMurtry, and fills in the unacknowledged missing pieces in the work of Paul Krugman, Naomi Klein, and Noam Chomsky, among others. He lays bare the frightening reality of how capital has controlled our understanding of knowledge, ethics, and meaning, to the detriment of the life-flourishing of peoples and environments. Yet his argument remains optimistic: he shows how the power of capital can be escaped, and how the life-ground of human goodness can replace it.
