Mimetic Reflections
  • By William Schweiker
$40.00
This book argues that a basic problem in thinking about understanding, temporality, and selfhood is due to "imitative" modes of thought found in much traditional Western philosophy and theology. Given this, the book examines the complex role that "image" and "imitation" play in understanding and its world of meaning, the import of language and narrative for configuring human temporality, and the existence of self. The author's contention is that when critically understood, mimesis, with its roots in performative enactment, holds resources for reconsidering these basic dimensions of human life beyond imitative paradigms of thought.
