I've tried sending this posting for two months and it always came back.
So, now that we have a new address, I'll try again. Please read below.

Has anyone heard of the book Postmodernism Rightly Understood by Peter
A. Lawler? A fellow faculty member pointed it out to me. I haven't read or
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 :)

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
