Overview

"In this challenging work, Daniel draws on the semiotics of Foucault, Kristeva, and Peirce to explore Edwards’s typology.... elegant and important... " —Library Journal

"A provocative and at times brilliant reinterpretation of Edwards... " —Religious Studies Review

"... a comprehensive analysis and redefinition of the thought of Jonathan Edwards."—Peirce Project Newsletter

"... a new foundation for the study of Edwards’s thought and rhetoric." —Wilson H. Kimnach

"... this is a superb and important book, one that deserves to be widely read and vigorously discussed." —Transactions of the Charles S. Pierce Society

"... Daniel’s work ought... to be required reading among the Edwards guild, for it provides perhaps the best philosophical introduction in English to Edward’s major writings." —Church History

Drawing on the semiotic work of Peirce, Foucault, and Kristeva, Stephen Daniel shows how the Renaissance theory of signatures provides Edwards and his contemporaries with a powerful alternative to the ideas of Descartes and Locke.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The Puritan divine, Edwards is difficult to situate in the classical, philosophical episteme. In this challenging work, Daniel (philosophy, Texas A&M Univ.) draws on the semiotics of Foucault, Kristeva, and Peirce to explore Edwards's typology. Where the classical episteme posits a signifying idea beyond the sign, Edwards's develops a Renaissance-Stoic conception of the signifier-signified as a unit. Nature itself exists as a divine text, the Word made manifest, and the sign takes its meaning from the intertextual displacement with other signs. Original sin is the disintegration of the sign from its original unity, and Christ is the mediating sign that reestablishes the link between the language of nature and human language. This is an elegant and important book; recommended for academic libraries.-T.L. Cooksey, Armstrong State Coll., Savannah, Ga.
