Geography of Law by William Taylor

Book Description

The essays in this collection relate notions of space and representations of interior and exterior spaces to concerns for individual identity and autonomy as these are framed by practices of governance or codified by law. They examine the manner in which imaginative frameworks forming an environment for human action are objectified through practices aimed at governing relations between people or conversely,the way in which legal codes and statutes rely upon there being a relationship between individuals and their surroundings. The Geography of Law brings together research from a range of disciplines to question how urban spaces, works of architecture and landscape, and representations of socio-legal ideas in texts, city plans and paintings, engage with the construction of identity, character and values, both historically and the present day. Essayists question the usefulness of space and regulation as categories of critical analysis, scrutinize familiar uses of these categories and invent new ones. This motivation behind the collection is based on an assumption that space and law carry moral worth and elicit moral considerations however variable their value might be.

Style or Substance? by William Taylor Style or Substance?, Paperback / softback (July 2016)

In every age, Christians experience pressure to embrace contemporary culture. In 2 Corinthians 2-7, Paul writes into this setting, urging the Corinthians then, and us today, to embrace the 'weak' ministry of Gospel proclamation as it is in this weakness that God's power is exhibited. Nothing could be more opposite to our celebrity culture
