New from OUP - Joyce's Ulysses: Philosophical Perspectives, edited by Philip Kitcher, John Dewey Professor of Philosophy at Columbia
30% off with promo code AAFLYG6 ($17.47)
Though James Joyce was steeped in philosophy and humanism, he has received too little attention from contemporary philosophers in comparison to many of the other titans of modernist fiction. This book probes the possibilities for thinking philosophically about Joyce's masterpiece, Ulysses. 
Ulysses is an intrinsically and deeply philosophical work, and these readings provide new inroads and firm orientation for Joyce's project. Readers will come away with renewed appreciation for one of our greatest works of literature in the English language, and deepened understanding of Joyce's attempt to offer alternative ways of structuring and enriching the world of our experience.
Introduction, Philip Kitcher
Chapter 1. Between Detachment and Disgust: Bloom in Hades, Martha Nussbaum
Chapter 2. A Portrait of Consciousness: Joyce's Ulysses as Philosophical Psychology, Garry Hagberg
Chapter 3. Feeling Ulysses: An Address to the Cyclopean Reader, Vicki Mahaffey and Wendy J. Truran
Chapter 4. Ulysses May Be a Legal Fiction, Sam Slote
Chapter 5. Doing Dublin in Different Voices, David Hills
Chapter 6. Something Rich and Strange: Joyce's Perspectivism, Philip Kitcher
