An indepth consideration of cultural loss,
This review is from: Lost Icons: Reflections on Cultural Bereavement (Paperback)
Lost Icons - Reflections on Cultural Bereavement Rowan Williams
It is wholly appropriate that at the beginning of the twenty-first century we are invited to reflect on crisis and cultural loss. The Archbishop of Wales, in his new book offers us an enlightening and disturbing journey through human experience.
In this closely argued book, Rowan Williams considers the many aspects of cultural loss and crisis that afflict us; not only through the concepts and constructions that affect the way we live, but also the language that we use to describe our lived experiences. The importance of how we perceive and exercise choice is drawn out, and examined. The involvement of our own 'good' or 'interest' with that of others is a theme that runs through the book.
