Itself gives a gift. The end pages are filled with “acknowledgements” of Dr. Baum. What is intriguing, if not impressive, about these ac/knowledge/ments is not so much the array of thinkers that Dr. Baum calls his mentors and peers, a formidable list, but the care that is apparent is acknowledgement itself. One has the sense, in beginning Itself from the back, that we are dealing not merely with a brilliant and thorough thinker, but with a very human sage. In his authenticity, RCB unconceals an authentic care for Dasein, not a flamboyant display of inauthentic posturing (that is all too typical), but a pathway to understand the intentionality with which Dr. Baum approaches Itself, giving.
To “live a creative life with courage,” if there is anything that we can truly call freedom –this is it- and this is the very thing that Itself gives. We experience in Itself a sense of freedom (emotional, intellectual, spiritual, and physical) that is rare in writing, let alone in philosophistical writing. Robert Craig Baum has achieved a freedom, and gives Itself as a gift of freedom in the sensitive dwelling, speculating, and dreaming. Perhaps this is the greatest gift that Itself gives; a transcending from the Heideggerian dwelling to the Baumian dreaming.Read more ›
