  1. Guy Bennett-Hunter (2014). Ineffability and Religious Experience. Pickering & Chatto.
    Ineffability – that which cannot be explained in words – lies at the heart of the Christian mystical tradition. It has also been part of every discussion of religious experience since the early twentieth century. Despite this centrality, ineffability is a concept that has largely been ignored by philosophers of religion. In this book, Bennett-Hunter builds on the recent work of David E. Cooper, who argues that the meaning of life can only be understood in terms of an ineffable source (...)

  7. Guy Bennett-Hunter (2009). Absurd Creation: An Existentialist View of Art? Philosophical Frontiers 4 (1):49-58.
    What are we to make of works of art whose apparent point is to convince us of the meaninglessness and absurdity of human existence? I examine, in this paper, the attempt of Albert Camus to provide philosophical justification of art in the face of the supposed fact of absurdity and note its failure as such with specific reference to Sartre’s criticism. Despite other superficial similarities, I contrast Camus’s concept of the absurd with that of his ‘existentialist’ colleagues, including Sartre, and (...)

  8. Guy Bennett-Hunter (2007). Heidegger on Philosophy and Language. Philosophical Writings 35:5-16.
