Summary : How can one think and name an inconceivable and ineffable God? Christian mystics have approached the problem by speaking of God using "negative" language—devices such as grammatical negation and the rhetoric of "darkness" or "unknowing"—and their efforts have fascinated contemporary scholars. In this strikingly original work, Thomas A. Carlson reinterprets premodern approaches to God's ineffability and postmodern approaches to the mystery of the human subject in light of one another. The recent interest in mystical theological traditions, Carlson argues, is best understood in relation to contemporary philosophy's emphasis on the idea of human finitude and mortality. Combining both historical research in theology (from Pseudo-Dionysius to Aquinas to Eckhart) and contemporary philosophical analysis (from Hegel and Nietzsche to Heidegger, Derrida, and Marion), Indiscretion will interest philosophers, theologians, and other scholars concerned with the possibilities and limits of language surrounding both God and human subjectivity.

Summary : Annotation In March 1929 a questionnaire was distributed among University of Missouri students to measure their attitudes toward marriage. Students were instructed to answer the questions as best they could, then drop their responses into any campus mailbox for delivery to the Bureau of Personnel Research. Rumors of Indiscretion explores how a college senior's psychology class project, a seemingly innocuous questionnaire, could cause a statewide uproar that attracted national attention. The questionnaire, quickly brought to the notice of the University of Missouri's dean of women, soon found its way into the university president's office, the local media, and even the Missouri legislature. Many people, never having read the questionnaire, were forced to rely on rumors or excerpts in the newspapers about what it actually contained. Yet, a cry arose for the expulsion of the students and professors responsible for this, as one headline labeled it, "filthy questionnaire." The controversy surrounding the questionnaire drew, lines between young and old, with the rising generation challenging the Victorian ideas of those who were frightened by this coming of age of America during the Jazz Age. Nelson brings out the historical significance of this episode by placing it into two contexts: the history of the University of Missouri and the "culture war" in America during the 1920s. He argues that the 1920s were a time of continuity as well as change in Missouri and the United States. What was actually lost was Victorianism and its mandate for an orderly culture in which each member had a sharply defined role, violations of which carried societal consequences. The youth of this time rebelled against theconstraints of such a society. Many sought change, but few were what would later be called radicals. Nelson uses the University of Missouri episode to demonstrate that while Victorianism's unrealistic notions were lost, tradition.

Summary : `An Indiscretion in the Life of a Heiress', is one of ten stories - three collaborative, all uncollected - that are brought together in this volume. `Indiscretion', derived from Hardy's unpublished first novel The Poor Man and the Lady, represents one of his earliest confrontations with theclass and gender issues which were to remain central to his fiction throughout his life. Several of the other stories, notably `Destiny and a Blue Cloak', `The Spectre of the Real', and `The Unconquerable', raise similar questions, while at the same time illustrating, in typical Hardyan fashion,life's little (or somewhat larger) ironies.Some of the other stories are less characteristic: `Old Mrs Chuncle', for example, approximates moral fable more closely than is usual for Hardy, while `Our Exploits at West Poley' is anomalous not only in being (like `The Thieves Who Couldn't Help Sneezing') a story written for children but alsoin experimenting with unreliable narration. Such stories are signifcant precisley because they incoporate varieties of technique, subject matter, and genre that are otherwise found in the Hardy canon either rarely or not at all.
