Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Volume 22 in the LTPM series offers a synchronic investigation of the thought of Christian philosopher Louis Dupre. Working from a careful reading of Dupre's vast body of writings, Paul Levesque demonstrates that in Dupre's work all religious expression, insofar as it has a transcendent reference, is intrinsically symbolic. In the course of his study, Levesque discusses the general necessity of employing symbols for religious expression; investigates in depth Dupre's symbol theory and applies it to the religious symbols of ritual, sacraments, and religious art; examines the modern inability to fully form religious symbols; and explores Dupre's particular call to recover the mystical experience in personal life.
