Description

"This volume is a Festschrift with a difference: a collection of essays written by colleagues to honor students -- past, present, future -- rather than an aged academic kindred spirit. the end-product of a 'Great Conversation' which extended over two years (1985-1987), the volume contains ten essays by nine Dominican College faculty members.

Each essay has been developed in the context of inter-disciplinary discussions to which specialists in art history, history, literature, and philosophy contributed their knowledge and insights. Lest that statement suggest placid armchair soliloquies. let me quickly add that the discussions were frank and vigorous, and served to focus, refine, and sometimes change altogether the final topics of the essays." ~ from the Introduction by Sister M. Samuel Conlan, O.P.
