Scott, William Robert
Previous owner's signature on ffep.A study of Francis Hutcheson, in terms of his life, teaching and position in the history of philosophy. Scott set out with the modest project of gathering materials for an article on Hutcheson's period in Dublin, prior to his appointment as professor of Moral Philosophy at Glasgow. The work grew into an extensive study, not only of Hutcheson's own life and thought, but of his place in the intellectual life of his age.296pp.

Baraka, Amiri Imamu; McEvilley, Thomas
In this publication, Thornton Dial's assemblages, as well as his watercolours and drawings, are presented in 128 reproductions - 122 in colour. Using a variety of materials - scrap metal, rope, carpeting, canvas, wood and paint - held together with industrial sealing compound, self-taught contemporary artist Thornton Dial creates powerful, richly textured narrative assemblages. His primary symbol is the tiger, with which he represents the African-American male, notably himself, encountering life. The text offers a multifaceted look at the artist's career. First, art critic Thomas McEvilley, widely known for his groundbreaking writings on post-Modernism, analyzes Dial's work as a watershed in the emergence of alternatives to Western art-historical conventions. Then, noted poet, playwright and essayist Amiri Baraka looks at the phenomenon of the African-American self-taught artist and the cultural tradition from which Dial emerges. Baraka also provides an interpretation of the artist's imagery. The illustrations are accompanied by extended captions that elucidate Dial's thoughts and working processes.160pp.
