Footsteps After Thought explores the implications and extent of our creativity. It embodies a self-reflexive study of man's interaction with recurring metaphysical questions of human existence. Through this vehicle of the creative experience we explore the perhaps imaginary terrain of intuitive knowledge and its seemingly mystical element we experience as "inspiration."

Produktbeschreibung
Footsteps After Thought explores the implications and extent of our creativity. It embodies a self-reflexive study of man's interaction with recurring metaphysical questions of human existence. Through this vehicle of the creative experience we explore the perhaps imaginary terrain of intuitive knowledge and its seemingly mystical element we experience as "inspiration." We examine how the varied and expressive "languages" of art may provide insight into metaphysical questions that have historically transcended our powers of logic and prosaic deliberation. The epistemological and ontological implications of such an approach are examined, as well as the affective dimension of artistic experience and its intricate relationship with belief.

Rezensionen
"Ronald Voake's compelling work takes the artist, therapist, and philosopher on a journey to the very source of the creative process. As the author searches for his own personal myth through scholarly prose and exquisite poetry, the reader is transported through the underworld and its darkness, up to the light of everyday existence; and on to an understanding of the oracle as a receptacle of spirit." (Mary Jean Meyer, Creative Arts Therapist)
"In an age not very hospitable to speculative philosophy, this book offers a refreshing return. Within its covers, the world can be seen in a way vastly different from our ordinary perception, but also in way illuminating if we want to stretch our minds toward a new vision. It is unique in its perspective." (Frederick Sontag, Robert Denision Professor of Philosophy, Pomona College and the Claremont Granduate School)
