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.

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.See all Product Description
