Has anyone heard of the book Postmodernism Rightly Understood by Peter

bought it, but apparently Lawler sees Percy (and Lasch) as answers to the
emptiness and soulessness of Foucault, Derrida, etc. Here is the link to

Postmodernism Rightly Understood</A>
I'd like to hear from someone who is familiar with the book, but our
listserv seems to become less lively by the day--it's almost like being on
a Trappist listserv :)
"Eternity is in the present. Eternity is in
the palm of the hand. Eternity is a seed of
fire, whose sudden roots break barriers that
keep my heart from being an abyss."
- Thomas Merton
