About Religion

Economies of Faith in Virtual Culture
  • By Mark C. Taylor
Product Description
<div>"Religion," Mark C. Taylor maintains, "is most interesting where it is least obvious." From global financial networks to the casinos of Las Vegas, from images flickering on computer terminals to steel sculpture, material culture bears unexpected traces of the divine. In a world where the economies of faith are obscure, yet pervasive, Taylor shows that approaching religion directly is less instructive than thinking <i>about</i> it.<br><br>Traveling from high culture to pop culture and back again, <i>About Religion</i> approaches cyberspace and Las Vegas through Hegel and Kant and reads Melville's <i>The Confidence-Man</i> through the film <i>Wall Street.</i> As astonishing juxtapositions and associations proliferate, formerly uncharted territories of virtual culture disclose theological vestiges, showing that faith in contemporary culture is as unavoidable as it is elusive.<br><br>The most accessible presentation of Taylor's revolutionary ideas to date, <i>About Religion</i> gives us a dazzling and disturbing vision of life at the end of the old and beginning of the new millennium.<br><br></div>
