The questions Joel asks in one of his recent posts are questions I’ve been asking for a while. Here’s an excerpt from my recent book that tries to address some of those questions. As with my last excerpt, I’ve decided to make the passage more readable by removing the footnotes.
Zwickau Press has published my book Boundaries Thick and Permeable. You can find the amazon link here. My undergraduate thesis served as the skeleton for a further year of revising, refining, and expanding that has led to its current shape. I don’t believe that there are samples available for interested parties [update: as of March 8 amazon has a preview available], so I’ll post one of the passages I’m most proud of below. This passage also speaks directly to a lot of the discussion we’ve been having over the last few months on this blog on the topics of art, authentic expression, and creativity. For ease of online reading, I’ve removed all footnotes – but don’t worry, footnotes are there in full abundance in the book.
