Teaser Tuesday - Oct 8



Teaser Tuesday

The rules are:
  • Grab your current read.
  • Let the book fall open to a random page.
  • Share with us two (2) 'teaser' sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
  • You also need to share the title and author of the book that you’re getting your 'teaser' from .. that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you've given!
During the mid-1970's and subsequently, Rowan came to see that these arguments were still more significant when given a religious twist. If language itself involves an act of trust by expecting to evoke a shared world, the a progressively suggestive inference may be drawn: that there is an affinity between the structure of thinking and the structure of reality - an affinity where love and imagination are integral to the picture.
Some hard thinking(!) required there - a re-read of Rowan's Rule by Rupert Shortt, I read and teased it back in 2009, I bought the book a few years ago and am only now getting around to reading my own copy. The context of the quote is Rowan Williams (for this is a biography of him!) thoughts on Decartes, Wittgenstein and Edith Stein.
