Identity

beyondfaithBC alumnus Tim Holmes has published the second edition of Beyond Faith and Reason (Tate Publishing), an expanded and revised edition of his seminal critique of identity. From Soren Kierkegaard to Jean-Paul Sartre, Emmanuel Levinas and more, a carefully selected array of thinkers are provokingly surveyed laying the groundwork for a novel introspection. Through an analysis of reason, affectivity, aesthetics and responsibility, Holmes demonstrates a twofold dynamic foundation of a singular identity. Illustrating a delineation of the various elements of who we are, as well as a cogent epistemology and spiritual orientation. Acknowledging their transcendent ends, he poetically renders the depths of existence and the self alike through the phenomena of humility, spite and fidelity; breathing new life into the field of identity theory.
