Date: Mon, 05 Mar 2001 20:29:32 -0600 Subject: The Confession of Augustine I just wanted to let others know that a new Lyotard book has been published entitled "The Confession of Augustine." It is based on some essays and writings Lyotard was still working on at the time of his death. It features an introduction by Delores Lyotard and some samples of writing in Lyotard's own hand. It is a short book, only about 96 pages in all. However, for anyone interested in Lyotard it is certainly an interesting addition. Lyotard discusses Augustine as the precursor of modernism and the autobiography. He discusses the relationship this has with phenomenology,consciousness and time as a mode endlessly deferring. Has anyone else read this book and would they be interested in discussing it further?
