"Gegensatz," pronounced "GAY-gun-ZAHTS," is German for "opposition" or "alternative state of affairs."
Eric v.d. Luft, Ph.D., M.L.S., a professional scholar, educator, librarian, and philosopher, founded Gegensatz Press in 1996 to bring durable, high-quality nonfiction works to the public in a way that is (1) hassle-free for the author, (2) economical for the buyer, (3) preservation-conscious for the librarian, and (4) edifying for the reader.
In 2004 Gegensatz Press published its first full-length book, God, Evil, and Ethics: A Primer in the Philosophy of Religion. A sturdy Smyth-sewn paperback costing only $14.95, we intend it to compete with many higher-priced anthologies and introductions to the philosophy of religion. We believe that its content and organization are equal or superior to any of them.
Gegensatz Press publishes philosophy, general nonfiction, popular culture, poetry, humor, and games.

"The Desensitization Hierarchy Method,
described in this book, is a tool for managing
change, but its users will always be in charge of
deciding both what changes they want to make,
and how much they want to do at any one time.
The method is a bit like an automobile, a means
of travel, the driver deciding where to go, and
at what speed."
