In this book, Graham Oppy examines arguments for and against the existence of God. He shows that none of these arguments is powerful enough to change the minds of reasonable participants in debates on the question of the existence of God. His conclusion is supported by detailed analyses of the arguments as well as by the development of a theory about the purpose of arguments and the criteria that should be used in judging whether or not arguments are successful. Oppy discusses the work of a wide array of philosophers, including Anselm, Aquinas, Descartes, Locke, Leibniz, Kant, Hume and, more recently, Plantinga, Dembski, White, Dawkins, Bergman, Gale and Pruss.

DIGITAL SYSTEMS DESIGN USING VERILOG integrates coverage of logic design principles, Verilog as a hardware design language, and FPGA implementation to help electrical and computer engineering students master the process of designing and testing new hardware configurations. A Verilog equivalent of authors Roth and John's previous successful text using VHDL, this practical book presents Verilog constructs side-by-side with hardware, encouraging students to think in terms of desired hardware while writing synthesizable Verilog. Following a review of the basic concepts of logic design, the authors introduce the basics of Verilog using simple combinational circuit examples, followed by models for simple sequential circuits. Subsequent chapters ask readers to tackle more and more complex designs.

A collection of critical texts from Paul de Man's Harvard University years, published for the first timeThese essays, brought together from the Paul de Man papers at the University of California (Irvine), make a significant contribution to the cultural history of deconstruction and the present state of literary theory. From 1955 to 1961, Paul de Man was Junior Fellow at Harvard University where he wrote a doctoral thesis entitled 'The Post-Romantic Predicament: a study in the poetry of Mallarme and Yeats'. This dissertation is presented alongside his other texts from this period, including essays on Holderlin, Keats and Stefan George. This collection reflects familiar concerns for de Man: the figurative dimension of language, the borders between philosophy and literature, the ideological obfuscations of Romanticism, and the difficulties of the North American heritage of New Criticism.
