In the Time of the Nations
In this major collection of essays, Emmanuel Levinas, a leading philosopher of the 20th century, considers Judaism's uncertain relationship to European culture since the Enlightenment, problems of distance and integration. The book includes five Talmudic readings from between 1981 and 1986, essays on Franz Rosenzweig and Moses Mendelssohn, and a discussion with Francoise Armengaud which raises questions of central importance to Jewish philosophy in the context of general philosophy. This work brings to the fore the vital encounter between philosophy and Judaism, a hallmark of Levinas' thought. These books are seminal works of the finest minds in Western thought, including Adorno, Badiou, Derrida, Heidegger and Larkin. They are works of such power that they changed the cultural mind when they were written and continue to resonate today - landmark texts in the fields of philosophy, literature, popular culture, politics and theology - strikingly designed, accessibly priced.

Semantics: A Coursebook
This practical coursebook introduces all the basics of semantics in a simple, step-by-step fashion. Each unit includes short sections of explanation with examples, followed by stimulating practice exercises to complete in the book. Feedback and comment sections follow each exercise to enable students to monitor their progress. No previous background in semantics is assumed, as students begin by discovering the value and fascination of the subject and then move through all key topics in the field, including sense and reference, simple logic, word meaning and interpersonal meaning. New study guides and exercises have been added to the end of each unit to help reinforce and test learning. A completely new unit on non-literal language and metaphor, plus updates throughout the text significantly expand the scope of the original edition to bring it up-to-date with modern teaching of semantics for introductory courses in linguistics as well as intermediate students.

Organic Chemistry: An Acid-Base Approach
Based on the premise that many, if not most, reactions in organic chemistry can be explained by variations of fundamental acid-base concepts, Organic Chemistry: An Acid-Base Approach provides a framework for understanding the subject that goes beyond mere memorization. The individual steps in many important mechanisms rely on acid-base reactions, and the ability to see these relationships makes understanding organic chemistry easier. Using several techniques to develop a relational understanding, this textbook helps students fully grasp the essential concepts at the root of organic chemistry. Providing a practical learning experience with numerous opportunities for self-testing, the book contains: * Checklists of what students need to know before they begin to study a topic * Checklists of concepts to be fully understood before moving to the next subject area * Homework problems directly tied to each concept at the end of each chapter * Embedded problems with answers throughout the material * Experimental details and mechanisms for key reactions The reactions and mechanisms contained in the book describe the most fundamental concepts that are used in industry, biological chemistry and biochemistry, molecular biology, and pharmacy. The concepts presented constitute the fundamental basis of life processes, making them critical to the study of medicine. Reflecting this emphasis, most chapters end with a brief section that describes biological applications for each concept. This text provides students with the skills to proceed to the next level of study, offering a fundamental understanding of acids and bases applied to organic transformations and organic molecules.

From reviews of previous volumes: Essential for chemistry collections at the university and research levels. --The New York Public Library Highly recommended...lots of succinct, practical information on recent developments...in a format that is easy to use. The reagents are taken up in alphabetical order (common usage names, not CAS indexing code names), sometimes several to a page, sometimes several pages to a reagent. One can expect to find how to make the reagent (in loose terms), or where it can be bought, what it is good for, and where to seek complete details. As with previous volumes, one can profit from just browsing, even if one does not feel a need to look up any particular subject. It is thus a secondary function of the book to help one keep abreast of the field, and it would be a rare chemist who would not learn something new and useful from a casual perusal of the pages. --Journal of the American Chemical Society REAGENTS FOR ORGANIC SYNTHESIS Volume 1 1967 (0-471-25875-X) 1,475 pp. Volume 2 1969 (0-471-25876-8) 538 pp. Volume 3 1972 (0-471-25879-2) 401 pp. Volume 4 1974 (0-471-25881-4) 660 pp. Volume 5 1975 (0-471-25882-2) 864 pp. Volume 6 1977 (0-471-25873-3) 765 pp. Volume 7 1979 (0-471-02918-1) 487 pp. Volume 8 1980 (0-471-04834-8) 602 pp. Volume 9 1981 (0-471-05631-6) 596 pp. Volume 10 1982 (0-471-86636-9) 528 pp. Volume 11 1984 (0-471-88628-9) 669 pp. Volume 12 1986 (0-471-83469-6) 643 pp. Volume 13 1988 (0-471-63007-1) 472 pp. Volume 14 1989 (0-471-50400-9) 386 pp. Volume 15 1990 (0-471-52113-2) 432 pp. Volume 16 1992 (0-471-52721-1) 435 pp. Volume 17 1994 (0-471-00074-4) 464 pp. Volume 18 1999 (0-471-24477-5) 518 pp. Volume 19 1999 (0-471-32709-3) 504 pp. Volume 20 2000 (0-471-36999-3) 552 pp. Volume 21 2002 (0-471-21393-4) 608 pp. Volume 22 2005 (0-471-42951-1) 608 pp.

Dis-Enclosure: The Deconstruction of Christianity
This book is a profound and eagerly anticipated investigation into what is left of a monotheistic religious spirit-notably, a minimalist faith that is neither confessional nor credulous. Articulating this faith as works and as an objectless hope, Nancy deconstructs Christianity in search of the historical and reflective conditions that provided its initial energy. Working through Blanchot and Nietzsche, re-reading Heidegger and Derrida, Nancy turns to the Epistle of Saint James rather than those of Saint Paul, discerning in it the primitive essence of Christianity as hope. The religion that provided the exit from religion, as he terms Christianity, consists in the announcement of an end. It is the announcement that counts, however, rather than any finality. In this announcement there is a proximity to others and to what was once called parousia. But parousia is no longer presence; it is no longer the return of the Messiah. Rather, it is what is near us and does not cease to open and to close, a presence deferred yet imminent. In a demystified age where we are left with a vision of a self-enclosed world-in which humans are no longer mortals facing an immortal being, but entities whose lives are accompanied by the time of their own decline-parousia stands as a question. Can we venture the risk of a decentered perspective, such that the meaning of the world can be found both inside and outside, within and without our so-immanent world? The deconstruction of Christianity that Nancy proposes is neither a game nor a strategy. It is an invitation to imagine a strange faith that enacts the inadequation of life to itself. Our lives overflow the self-contained boundaries of their biological and sociological interpretations. Out of this excess, wells up a fragile, overlooked meaning that is beyond both confessionalism and humanism.
