Charles McCreery

THE ABOLITION OF GENIUS

Amazon UK: £15.95

Amazon USA: $19.95

Amazon Canada: C$29.95

An analysis of the relationship between genius and money.

Charles McCreery proposes the controversial thesis that the possession of a private income, either by the genius or by his or her patron, has been a necessary condition of the productivity of the great majority of geniuses throughout history.

His analysis is illustrated with many instructive, and sometimes surprising, examples.

"This is a courageous, well-argued and timely book."
Professor H.J. Eysenck

In The Ideology of the Elites, Fabian Tassano dissects, via a series of concise essays, the intellectual foibles of the political and cultural elites. He exposes contradictions and dishonesties, and reveals an ideology purportedly egalitarian and open-minded, but covertly elitist and intolerant.

This volume contains essays on liberty, censorship, academia, universities, philosophy, the Right, politics, the 2008/09 meltdown, and economics.

Celia Green

ADVICE TO CLEVER CHILDREN

Amazon UK: £12.75

Reflections on education, religion and the human predicament.

"Young people wonder how the adult world can be so boring. The secret is that it is not boring to adults because they have learnt to enjoy simple things like covert malice at one another's expense. This is why they talk so much about human understanding. It has a certain rarity value in their world."

"Celia Green has written an important and mentally stimulating book which goes far beyond its title."
Lord St. John of Fawsley

"What this aggressive, stimulating book does is to make us face up to some of the polite fictions we have come to accept."
Ralph Yarrow, Phoenix

ISBN 978 09536772 21 (hardback)

THE POWER OF LIFE OR DEATH
Medical Coercion and the Euthanasia Debate

Amazon UK: £12.75

Amazon USA: $24.95

Amazon Canada: C$29.95

A book which argues against medical paternalism and suggests that the increasing power given to doctors to give or withhold treatment represents a dangerous infringement of individual liberty.

"A terse, clear, incisive, intellectually first-class study of the growing power of doctors and of the lack of effective checks upon the too easily concealed but surely numerous abuses of that power."
Professor Antony Flew

"His view goes straight to the medical jugular."
Nature

"Tassano presents hair-raising case studies ... his book is a timely polemic."

"A brilliant exposition of the human predicament."
Lord Rothermere

Times Literary Supplement

Celia Green

THE LOST CAUSE
Causation and the Mind-Body Problem

Foreword by Professor Howard Robinson

Amazon UK: £12.75

Amazon USA: $24.95

The concept of causation enters into many fields of philosophy. This analysis has been written with special reference to philosophy of mind, but is of general relevance.

"Celia Green has succeeded in bringing together considerations from a wide range of disciplines: philosophy, obviously, but also psychology, neuroscience and fundamental physics, making skilful use of her own empirical investigations ... most impressive."
Dr Michael Lockwood, University of Oxford

"A worthwhile reminder of the various problems which surround the physicalism which currently dominates the philosophy of mind. ... Green does a good job of exposing the dogmatic underpinnings of current materialism, adherence to which makes mental causation seem deeply problematic."
The Human Nature Review
