Philosophy Report

One of our editors volunteered to handle our booth at the American Philosophical Association's annual meeting in Philadelphia. This was especially nice of him because it takes place in the middle of the holiday season--December 27 to 30.
Here's what he had to say:

I want to send you a few words on my adventure in Philadelphia at the American Philosophical Association conference. 2,500 philosophers attended. I've never seen so much tweed.

The new Harper Perennial Modern Thought books got a great response. Lots of folks were very happy to see Heidegger's Being and Time in paperback, and were excited about the forthcoming titles, especially Wittgenstein's Major Works.

Other titles that drew attention were HarperOne's Religion and Science by Ian Barbour and There is a God by Antony Flew, Ecco's Writings on an Ethical Life by Peter Singer and Human by Michael Gazzaniga, and Harper Perennial's Revolution in Mind by George Makari.

It was wonderful to hear professors say, "Oh, I'm going to assign this in my next class."
