BC 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.
