Crisis on campus : a bold plan for reforming our colleges and universities by Mark C Taylor ( Book )
3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 885 libraries worldwide
A provocative look at the troubled present state of American higher education and a passionately argued and learned manifesto for its future. Educator Mark C. Taylor expands on the ideas in his hugely controversial 2009 New York Times op-ed. His suggestions for the ivory tower are both thought-provoking and rigorous: End tenure. Restructure departments to encourage greater cooperation among existing disciplines. Emphasize teaching rather than increasingly rarefied research. And bring that teaching to new domains, using emergent networks to connect students worldwide. Taylor shows us the consequences of decades of organizational neglect: students chafing under the restrictions of traditional higher education, recent graduates with massive debts and unpromising jobs, anxious parents anticipating inflated future tuitions. Accommodating the students of today and anticipating those of tomorrow, attuned to schools' financial woes and the skyrocketing cost of education, Taylor imagines a new system, improvisational, responsive and innovative.--From publisher description.
After God by Mark C Taylor ( Book )
10 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 754 libraries worldwide
Religion, Mark C. Taylor argues in After God, is more complicated than either its defenders or critics think and, indeed, is much more influential than any of us realize. Our world, Taylor maintains, is shaped by religion even when it is least obvious. Faith and value, he insists, are unavoidable and inextricably interrelated for believers and nonbelievers alike. The first comprehensive theology of culture since the pioneering work of Paul Tillich, After God redefines religion for our contemporary age. This volume is a radical reconceptualization of religion and Taylors most pathbreaking work.
Disfiguring : art, architecture, religion by Mark C Taylor ( Book )
6 editions published between 1992 and 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 709 libraries worldwide
Disfiguring is the first sustained interpretation of the deep but often hidden links among twentieth-century art, architecture, and religion. While many of the greatest modern painters and architects have insisted on the spiritual significance of their work, historians of modern art and architecture have largely avoided questions of religion. Likewise, contemporary philosophers and theologians have, for the most part, ignored the visual arts. Taylor presents a carefully.

The moment of complexity : emerging network culture by Mark C Taylor ( Book )
12 editions published between 2001 and 2009 in English and held by 486 libraries worldwide
We live in a moment of unprecedented complexity, an era in which change occurs faster than our ability to comprehend it. With "The Moment of Complexity", Mark C. Taylor offers a map for the unfamiliar terrain opening in our midst, unfolding an original philosophy of our time through a remarkable synthesis of science and culture. According to Taylor, complexity is not just a breakthrough scientific concept but the defining quality of the post-Cold War era. The flux of digital currents swirling around us, he argues, has created a new network culture with its own distinctive logic and dynamic.

The picture in question : Mark Tansey and the ends of representation by Mark C Taylor ( Book )
7 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 393 libraries worldwide
A rich exploration of the possibilities of representation after Modernism, Mark Taylor's new study charts the logic and continuity of Mark Tansey's painting by considering the philosophical ideas behind Tansey's art. Taylor examines how Tansey uses structuralist and poststructuralist thought as well as catastrophe, chaos, and complexity theory to create paintings that please the eye while provoking the mind. Taylor's clear accounts of thinkers ranging from Plato, Kant, and Hegel to Merleau-Ponty, Derrida, and de Man will be an invaluable contribution to students and teachers of art.

Field notes from elsewhere by Mark C Taylor ( Book )
2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 271 libraries worldwide
"In the fall of 2005, Mark C. Taylor, the controversial public intellectual and widely respected scholar, suddenly fell critically ill. For two days a team of forty doctors, many of whom thought he would not live, fought to save him. Taylor would eventually recover, but only to face a new threat: surgery for cancer. ... Field Notes from Elsewhere is Taylor's unforgettable, inverted journey from death to life. Each of his memoir's fifty-two chapters and accompanying photographs recounts a morning-to-evening experience with sickness and convalescence, mingling humor and hope with a deep exploration of human frailty and, conversely, resilience. When we confront the end of life, Taylor explains, the axis of the lived world shifts, and everything must be reevaluated. As Taylor sorts through his remembrances, much that once seemed familiar becomes strange, paradoxical, and contradictory. He reads his experience with and against ghosts from his past, recasting the meaning of mortality, sacrifice, solitude, and abandonment, along with a host of other issues, in light of modern ways of dying."
