After Writing: On the Liturgical Consummation of Philosophy

£27.00

Product description

'Outside Liturgy, outside the logic of Mass, there can be no meaning. In developing this astonishing thesis, Pickstock comprehensively outflanks both modernity and post modernity, and enunciates a wholly new, a wholly orthodox theology. her labyrinthine treatise, with its many hermetic inner corridors, ceaselessly refracting much of the best and often unknown recent work in philosophy, theology, history and classics, establishes a new and formidable state of the art theological writing. All theologians, philosophers, and church leaders must read this supremely important book' - John Milbank, University of Cambridge

292 pages including index. Black glossy covers. There is a small 1 cm pen mark on the bottom block. There is also a small scuff mark on the spine and the rear cover. Pages are crisp, clean and free of any markings. The book is tightly bound

After Writing provides a significant contribution to the growing genre of works which offers a challenge to modern and postmodern accounts of Christianity. Catherine Pickstock shows how Platonic philosophy did not assume a primacy of metaphysical presence, as had previously been thought, but a primacy of liturgical theory and practice. The author also provides a significant rethinking of Christian understandings of language, temporal and bodily life, and notions of the presence of God by discussing the Christian understandings of the liturgical practice, especially in the Medieval and pre-Enlightenment era. Through a detailed reading of Plato's Phaedrus, the medieval Roman Rite, and a discussion of the theology of the Eucharist, the book indicates directions for the restoration of the liturgical order. This book will be required reading for all systematic and philosophical theologians and their students, besides being of great interest to liturgists, historians and linguists. The ideas presented in the book are both significant in themselves and of great use at a teaching level.
