Giovanni Iudice's paintings and drawings of physicality-of crowds of migrants, crowds dispersed across beaches, of individual nudes and lovers-are full of air and light, immediate and yet fondly remote. Using photography as a starting point, he transforms fleeting moments into classic depictions of the present.

Continuing the adventures of Quintus Honorius Romanus (a.k.a. Taurus)—legendary gladiator of ancient Rome—this second book in the series picks up in AD 68, when the emperor is dead, and the throne is up for grabs. Three contenders square off to take control of the government, and as civil unrest begins to build, Quintus and his friends, the beast hunter Lindani and the gladiatrix Amazonia, are forced to fight with the legionnaires of Rome in what will soon become bloody civil war. Meanwhile, in a remote corner of the empire, Quintus' former slave, Lucius Calidius, plots another rise to power—and not even Quintus will stand in his way.

This book introduces profound reflections of Xavier Zubiri (1898-1983) on the history of philosophy to English-speaking audiences. The book discusses the transcendental in Western philosophy and how a firm grasp of it reveals underlying unity, but also fundamental problems that Zubiri believed require a complete rethinking of certain theories.
