Summary Read First Chapter image missing

This book is about the disruption of the intellect that awakens consciousness to its wholeness and purpose. When consciousness is fractured, its world-making powers are momentarily disrupted. In the gap, during which spatio-temporal categories of thought cease to apply, consciousness realigns with that which it is meant to serve. The moment of self-remembering--shocking, unique, and truthful--leaves a call to obedience in its wake. To refuse to respond is to cease to be human.

"Great originality and depth. Appelbaum is important and unique in modern philosophy." -- Jacob Needleman, San Francisco State University

David Appelbaum is Professor of Philosophy at the State University of New York, The College at New Paltz. He is the author of Everyday Spirits, The Stop, and Voice, also published by SUNY Press.
