Markets are the most efficient means yet discovered of allocating society's scarce resources. Unfortunately, many believe that market forces must inevitably conflict with social goals. So it is important to remind ourselves that market forces and self-interest can fulfil social, as well as private, aspirations. This book introduces a radical new financial instrument, Conflict Reduction Bonds, intended to channel the market's incentives and efficiencies into achieving what is perhaps our most urgent and yet remote social objective: the ending for all time of violent political conflict.

These contributions by prominent editors inquire centrally into the relation between philology and philosophy, more specifically the possibility of an inner bond uniting them, of a philological form of knowledge and truth, in short of a philosophy of philology. Alongside studies on the theoretical, methodological and hermeneutic aspects of editing, attention is also given to recent tendencies in editing theory and practice such as édition génétique and New Philology. Finally readers are informed about increasingly important practical and pragmatic aspects of editing, including funding, electronic editing and the copyright issues posed by the latter.
