15The Grand TrumpeterPolitical Animal Magazine. 2017."The Grand Trumpeter" brings a new slant to a well-known story, "The Grand Inquisitor." This new story, much like Dostoevsky's version, is definitely idea-led writing that touches on politics, culture (religion), and philosophy. This effort is best characterized as fiction.

126Reimagining SisyphusPhilosophy Now 75 12-13. 2009.Philip Villamor rethinks Albert Camus’ famous rock’n’roll parable.
