Summary Read First Chapter image missing

Explores themes of responsibility and initiation and offers an “initiatory ethics.”

The final installment in Appelbaum's three-volume exploration of the “intervening subject”—volumes one and two are The Stop and Disruption, also published by SUNY Press—The Delay of the Heart explores themes of responsibility and initiation and offers an "initiatory ethics." It intimates a secret of delay that is behind all traditional teachings and suggests ways that a sensitivity to a sacred obligation emerges from the heart of human experience.

“…read this work only if you are ready for a transformational and restorative experience of language and thought. You will not walk away unchanged.” — The European Legacy

“Not since Plato has the problem of 'delay' been an academic concern. In fact, the whole history of philosophy has been an effort to cover up this 'delay.' This book is a return to the origins of philosophy as opposed to the continuation of unquestioned ideology. Appelbaum is in the best of company for he is backed in this effort by modern neuroscience.”— Antonio T. de Nicolas, author of Powers of Imagining: Ignatius de Loyola: A Philosophical Hermeneutic of Imagining through the Collected Works of Ignatius de Loyola

The Delay of the Heart continues and advances the narrative begun in the two earlier volumes and fulfills their promise. Readers of those books would be wise to bring the unfolding exploration to fruition with this culminating movement. The works are integral. I see this work as opening and shaping the space of discourse for the next stage of philosophy.”— Ashok Gangadean, author of Between Worlds: The Emergence of Global Reason

“As Socrates and others have pointed out, nothing is more important than self-knowledge, and nothing is more difficult. If one is motivated to get to the bottom of oneself, or closer to it, this book is a fascinating read. It flies in the face of the breathlessness and obsessiveness of the culture. It is defiant, patient, unrelenting.”— Bruce Wilshire, editor of William James: The Essential Writings

David Appelbaum is Professor of Philosophy at the State University of New York, New Paltz and editor of Parabola magazine.
