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.
Copyright 1993 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

From the Back Cover

In this book, the author manages to combine an incisive understanding of human failures, obsessions, and intolerance with a moral sensibility. His chapter on disease is one of the most formidable attempts to understand our anxiety about what the body is and is not.

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.
