  4. Dominic Griffiths (forthcoming). Looking Into the Heart of Light: Considering the Poetic Event in the Work of T.S. Eliot and Martin Heidegger. Philosophy and Literature.
    No one is quite sure what happened to T.S. Eliot in that rose-garden. What we do know is that it formed the basis for Four Quartets, arguably the greatest English poem written in the twentieth century. Luckily it turns out that Martin Heidegger, when not pondering the meaning of being, spent a great deal of time thinking and writing about the kind of event that Eliot experienced.

  7. David Robjant (forthcoming). What Use is Literature to Political Philosophy? Or: The Funny Thing About Socrates’ Nose. Philosophy and Literature.
    Readers of Plato’s Republic wildly underestimate Thrasymachus’ challenge if they treat it as a claim about ‘justice’, and in grasping Plato’s response it is dangerous to confuse his aims and methods with those agreed on by his characters. Plato’s service to political philosophy is not merely literary, but comic. Plato’s drama exposes and ridicules a generalisation from Thrasymachus' own moral psychology at the heart of Thrasymachus’ political vision. Insight and comedy are born together when a pig who theorises a city (...)
