Product Description

Review

“This book is a refreshing attempt to transcend both modernity and postmodernity. Peperzak recognizes the limits of pure reason without despairing over them. He shows us how our limits can become the conditions for our success.” Catholic Library World, June 2006


"In this stimulating series of essays, Adriaan Theodoor Peperzak defends the need for a kind of learning that goes beyond academic professionalism, and reflects on how one might re-establish the links between philosophy and the central concern philosophers once shared with sages, theologians and masters of spirituality, for whom the driving force was a profound passion for succeeding in the art of living humanly. [I]f the book reaches only a restricted audience, that would be a pity. For the wider message is one that has much to say to contemporary anglophone philosophers, by no means all of whom are content to see their subject fragment into increasingly narrow specialisms. This rediscovery... is long overdue. [+A] powerful and committed piece of advocacy, rich in scholarship and of transparent integrity." —The Tablet, February 4, 2006


"Peperzak is at his best in his critique of the failures of the modern academy in its uniform imposition of the secularist, Enlightenment ideal of knowledge and in his use of the phenomenological approaches to open up a deeper appreciation of human practice . . . Peperzak is to be commended for struggling against the sterility of the modern academy and finding his way to a deeper and higher wisdom as found in faith, addressing himself to the very question of the relation of faith, spirituality, and philosophy."—Crisis Magazine, June 2006
