Continuing developments in postmodern sensibility as well as psychoanalysis increasingly illuminate multiple points of view. The essays in this book reflect studies in these areas and weave contributions of related disciplines together. The author, an experienced psychologist who also holds degrees in English Literature and Philosophy, writes invitingly from numerous perspectives. Topics addressed include issues of gender, worldview, crime, religion, mythology, science, &c. The significance of the context in what we can know is stressed. This is an excellent overview of the recent emphasis since Wittgenstein and Gadamer on the importance played by language in knowledge and understanding. A rich addition to studies of modern culture as well as a clear enunciation of the factors that form human understanding and the capacity for meaning, these essays are sure to be consulted over and over.
