Product Description

From Library Journal

Taylor has written an intellectually sophisticated meditation on the unfamiliarity of the familiar word not , as the boundary of the known and the unknown. In language that is baffling yet revealing, Taylor (humanities, Williams Coll.) provides a tour de force journey through, among others, Hegel, Kierkegaard, Derrida, Western negative theology, and Buddhist negation as developed in Nishitani. After exploring thought, art, and icon from Arakawa to Madonna, he considers bodily negativity through immunology and disease. An original and important work; recommended for most libraries.

Format: Paperback
As always reading Mark Taylor is difficult and rewarding. While this book is not so philosophically involved as some of his others, it presents new problems. Focusing on art, architecture, science, and pop culture, Taylor develops his ideas of a religion of negativity. If read too fast his thoughts here may seem superficial and redundant. Read closely and slowly, however, they reward. Taylor is the most interesting theologian writing today, and his books continue to affirm the relevance of a postmodernism that is no longer so popular. This is an important book, for sholars in all fields.
