Editorial Reviews


?Prado addresses two kinds of readers: those familiar with literature and literary criticism, and those acquainted with philosophical issues. Arguing persuasively from the two vantage points, he supports his claim that literature and philosophy should be considered, not two separate disciplines, but simply two sides of an argument. He hopes to achieve the desired unification by breaking down the barriers among the literary, the logical, and the linguistic. His clear exposition is accessible to both philosophers and literary critics, and affords new insight into an issue that is very much part of contemporary critical debate.?-The Antioch Review

More About the Author

I was born in Guatemala, grew up in San Francisco, California, and spent my working life in Canada. I taught philosophy for thirty years. Looking back, it was--and continues to be--writing that I enjoy most. Most recently I branched out into fiction, with a mystery: Murder at the Break, available as an eBook from,, and other eBook sites.
