Walton Has Book Published

Melanie Walton-LA book by Dr. Mélanie Walton, assistant professor of philosophy, entitled, “Expressing the Inexpressible in Lyotard and Pseudo-Dionysius: Bearing Witness as Spiritual Exercise,” has just been published by Lexington Books. This work brings the contemporary French father of postmodernism’ and the late antique, presumably Syrian father of mysticism into dialogue on the topic of the inexpressible, to which each are provoked by witnesses (the Holocaust survivor and faithful) who have been silenced by the limits of grammatical possibility, even while called to testify.
