Book Publishing Is About Free Speech? Ideas? Well That Myth Is Gone

“There may be an ideological component to publishing Pence and Conway, but it has nothing to do with ideas. It has to do with fetishizing ideological diversity, in which publishing garbage books from prominent Republicans is an end in and of itself.

The 17th-Century Philosophers You Won’t Learn About At Oxford

“Conway engages with the key debates of European philosophy of the period — the relationship between mind and body, the nature of matter, the attributes of God — and with the key philosophers.
