Format: Paperback
In many cases the articles contained in this volume are more polished versions of earlier journal articles and guest lectures by Desmond. As a result, they are often free of the overwhelming amount of terminology on which other of Desmond's works rely. Thus, this text offers the reader a chance to become aqcuainted with Desmond's thought and goals without becoming pre-maturely mired in a protracted study.

In addition to being a good introduction to Desmond's thought, this collection of related reflections on philosophy and religion is valuable for a number of reasons. The discussion of what Desmond labels 'The Sleep of Finitude' is a fitting critique of modern assumptions which offers suprising conections between major modern philosophers. The chapter devoted to Nietzsche again offers insightful criticisms, but in a manner which allows Nietzsche's detractors to appreciate his thought even as they attack it. Finally, there are many points where Desmond offers a reminder of the inexact nature of philosophy and the necessity to avoid betraying the wonder and reverance that give birth to philosophy, science, and religion.
