CATHERINE PICKSTOCK AFTER WRITING PDF

Catherine Pickstock of Cambridge University is an unusual philosopher: she has an ear for liturgy and, though a member of the Church of England, she has studied and is deeply inspired by the traditional Roman Rite of the Catholic Church. She explains how, with the coming of Christendom, the doxological dimension of antique thought was brought to a fuller realization in early liturgical texts, and thereby shaped the culture and politics of civilization of the pre-modern era. A Customer on Nov 20, There are some really fantastic elements in this book. But let me tell you first that I am a Catholic associated with the movement to restore the Tridentine Rite, and I can legitimately call myself a Thomist as far as my metaphysics and theology go. And so my criticisms of the work do not flow from a rejection of either of these.

Christian Theology Back cover copy After Writing provides a significant contribution to the growing genre of works which offers a challenge to modern and postmodern accounts of Christianity. Catherine Pickstock shows how Platonic philosophy did not assume a primacy of metaphysical presence, as had previously been thought, but a primacy of liturgical theory and practice.

The author also provides a significant rethinking of Christian understandings of language, temporal and bodily life, and notions of the presence of God by discussing the Christian understandings of the liturgical practice, especially in the Medieval and pre-Enlightenment era.

This book will be required reading for all systematic and philosophical theologians and their students, besides being of great interest to liturgists, historians and linguists.

The ideas presented in the book are both significant in themselves and of great use at a teaching level. Spatialization: The Middle of Modernity. Signs of Death. Seraphic Voices: The Space of Doxology.

Placher, Christian Century "Catherine Pickstock, has perhaps written the best riposte yet to the archbishopa s request for a a spiritual spacea within the Millennium Dome. Kemp "Pickstocka s discussion of Derrida is sophisticated. Spinks, Yale University "Lightning may now be said to have struck in the form of Catherine Pickstocka s After Writing, a bright flash in the sometimes murky world of religion and Postmodernism. She is extraordinarily gifted, and I suspect that in this book we have merely glimpsed her portent.

After Writing: On the Liturgical Cosummation of Philosophy (Challenges in Contemporary Theology)

The application of linguistics to theories of religious language, analogy and liturgy, with a consideration of the implications of this interaction for linguistics itself A critical consideration of postmodern philosophy in relation to the re-interpretation of premodern theology A reconsideration of the Platonic tradition in interaction with the Biblically based faiths, in particular the question of theurgy and understandings of the soul Research Interests My research is concerned with the relationship between theology and philosophy, and of both to language, poetics and the history of ideas. In After Writing and later articles, I apply modern linguistics to theories of religious language, analogy and liturgy, and consider the implications of this for the relation of language to reality. Repetition and Identity engages with literature and aesthetic theory to problematize the distinction between hermeneutics and metaphysics, arguing that the aporias arising from the necessity of repetition to constitute identity can be resolved theologically. PhD supervision I supervise graduates across a wide range of areas in philosophical theology, ancient and mediaeval philosophy especially Plato, Aquinas and Duns Scotus , postmodern and critical theory from Kierkegaard to Deleuze.
