Associate Professor of Philosophy and Religion at Olivet College
Coming Soon: Ekpyrosis Press is an independent publishing house dedicated to the advancement of critical thought within the realm of philosophy, religion, history, literature, political science, and other socially conscious disciplines. Open to all, Ekpyrosis Press is a peer-reviewed academic press, which seeks to reclaim Western culture from those who would weaponize it for their own socio-political purposes. It hopes to lead a rebirth of the lost arts and traditions of the West while remaining open to learning from and cooperating with all other cultures and peoples. Thus, while Ekpyrosis Press’ roots are in the West, its branches reach out to the rest of the world.
In January of 2020, Ekpyrosis Press will be accepting book proposals from qualified intellectuals, scholars, professors, and activists, who share our commitment to advance critical thought in our age of cultural conformity and reactionary politics.
We are currently working on our first three books: 1) The Critical Theory of Religion: From the Frankfurt School to Emancipatory Islamic Thought, by Dr. Dustin J. Byrd, 2) Hegel and the Critical Theory of Religion, by Dr. Rudolf J. Siebert, 3) Ali Shariati: Expanding the Sociological Canon, by Dr. Seyed Javad Miri. We expect all three to be available by the fall of 2020.
