  • Debating irony and the ironic as a social phenomenon and a human capacity 

    Rapport, Nigel Julian; Stade, Ronald (2014-11) - Journal article
    What follows is a set of paired articles, followed by a statement by both authors where they debate their distinct positions. Both articles treat irony, but while Rapport looks to it as a possible liberal virtue, a means ...
  • The debris disc of solar analogue tau Ceti : Herschel observations and dynamical simulations of the proposed multiplanet system
