About this product
- DescriptionIn this essay of extraordinary scope and depth, Eric McLuhan explores faith as a form of kwing. He does so against the backdrop of preliterate man's concrete, bodily submersion in the putting on of poetry and drama (the practice of mimesis) and post-literate man's bodiless submersion in electronic communication, in which sender and receiver are everywhere and where at once. In traversing the Aristotelian and Medieval concept of sensus communis, he examines synesthesia as, in effect, its operating system and charts the modern and contemporary mandate to embrace the discarnate. He washes up on the shore of religion as he uncovers a trinity of kwledge, that is, three kinds of sensus communis - the five physical senses, the four intellectual senses of Scripture (historical, allegorical, tropological, and anagogical), and the three theological senses (faith, hope, and charity)-each of the three complete in itself yet interacting with one ather. A fascinating odyssey that will dazzle the senses.
- Author BiographyEric McLuhan, PhD, a renowned literary and communications theorist, is also the author, most recently, of Cynic Satire, The Human Equation series (written with mime artist Wayne Constantineau), Theories of Communication, and Media and Formal Cause. Earlier, he co-authored essays and books with Marshall McLuhan including Laws of Media: The New Science and published The Role of Thunder in Finnegans Wake, among other books. McLuhan lives in Bloomfield, Ontario.
