Signs of Writing, Paperback (February 2014)
Roy Harris re-examines basic questions about writing that have long been obscured by the traditional assumption that writing is merely a visual substitute for speech. By treating writing as an independent mode of communication, he shows how musical, mathematical and other forms of writing obey the same principles as verbal writing.

Rationality and the Literate Mind, Paperback (May 2013)» View all books by Roy Harris
Roy Harris challenges the received mainstream opinion that reason is an intrinsic property of the human mind, and argues that the whole Western conception of rational thought, from Classical Greece down to modern symbolic logic, is a by-product of the way literacy developed in European cultures.
