Howells Critical Theory

Professor Richard Howells’ latest book is now available “FTIP” –publishing jargon for the First Time In Paperback.

An academic book usually comes out first only in hardback –with a hard price to match. But if it turns out to be a success, publishers may also consider a more affordable version in paperback.

That’s what’s happened here, with the paperback set at less than a third of the original hardback price, hopefully making it more available and widely read.

When it first came out in 2015, Howells’ monograph: A Critical Theory of Creativity: Utopia, Aesthetics, Atheism and Design was praised by Slavoj Žižek as: “brilliant and magisterial”, which probably did not do its paperback prospects any harm. For more information see:
