    • Analytic Theology and the Phenomenology of Faith 

      Kirkpatrick, Katherine (2016-05-01)

      Taddeo, Mariarosaria; Vaccaro, Antonino (2011)
      Much of the ethical debate on peer-to-peer (P2P) focuses on the use of this technology for unauthorized and illegal sharing of copyrighted materials. This fixation has led some to believe that P2P is an intrinsically ...

      Milligan, Tony (Palgrave Macmillan, 2014-09)

      Sandis, Constantine (2015-10-01)
