With Icon and Evidence, Margaret Gibson gives us poems grounded in reverence and inquiry and sensuous delight. She extends and enriches the lyric poem, finding it capacious and durable enough to embrace short and longer meditations, epistles, persona poems, and narratives. Whether their concerns are intimate, spiritual, or social, these are poems of atonement essentially faithful to experience and its revelations, more so than to any specific creed or doctrine. The task to be faithful is both aesthetic and spiritual; to use words faithfully is how Gibson clarifies her encounters with the Absolute within the relative and mutable things of this world. The opening poem situates the poet beneath an endless sky of stars and dark emptiness: "But dear God, all I want is to be here, / my tiny anguish and my joy / a moment's notice, an equivalent cry". The book divides into four sections: Canticle, Complaint, Confession, and Compline. Like the Psalms, the poems praise with one voice, then turn to note human failure, error, and injustice. They contemplate the ways of desire, then enter "the mission of solitude", turning from social practice to meditative practice, "summoned / by pain and darkness by an intrepid joy". Traditionally, one who makes an icon does so in an attitude of contemplation, the finished icon uniting image and spirit in a presence that challenges and confronts the one who stands before it. Evidence has the force of both data and document, but it also includes "the evidence of things not seen". In this rich and powerful collection, Gibson uses both icon and evidence to probe the human heart -- its entanglements and its freedom.

The book is mostly about one individual who worked for a large company and found himself on the wrong side of the company’s management when corruption was discovered and exposed. This took place even though he had worked for and through the company’s internal security forces, contracted corporate investigator firms, and the FBI. The book covers all levels and types of industrial crime, but concentrates more on executive crime. This is because it affects society the most, and it falls under the category of near-perfect crimes. This is because few are ever arrested, convicted, or do prison time even though they steal billions from all areas of society. The Wall Street crash was a prime example, and to add insult to injury, most got their bonuses on top of what they stole. This book continually tries to show its readers by example after example how easy it is for executives to steal billions and never even get questioned, forget about being arrested. Our criminal system is just not equipped or concerned about this type of crime. The ultimate concept being, crime in the executive world really pays big.

Diagrammatology investigates the role of diagrams for thought and knowledge. Based on the general doctrine of diagrams in Charles Peirce's mature work, Diagrammatology claims diagrams to constitute a centerpiece of epistemology. This book reflects Peirce's work on the issue in Husserl's contemporaneous doctrine of categorical intuition and charts the many unnoticed similarities between Peircean semiotics and early Husserlian phenomenology.
