The picture in question Mark Tansey and the ends of representation by Mark C Taylor ( )
8 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 1,191 WorldCat member 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

Crisis on campus : a bold plan for reforming our colleges and universities by Mark C Taylor ( Book )
8 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and held by 994 WorldCat member 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 ( )
18 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 955 WorldCat member 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

Erring : a postmodern a/theology by Mark C Taylor ( Book )
15 editions published between 1984 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 728 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
""Erring is a thoughtful, often brilliant attempt to describe and enact what remains of (and for) theology in the wake of deconstruction. Drawing on Hegel, Nietzsche, Derrida, and others, Mark Taylor extends-and goes well beyond-pioneering efforts. . . . The result is a major book, comprehensive and well-informed.""-G. Douglas Atkins, Philosophy and Literature ""Many have felt the need for a study which would explicate in coherent and accessible fashion the principal tenets of deconstruction, with particular attention to their theological implications. This need the
Disfiguring : art, architecture, religion by Mark C Taylor ( Book )
11 editions published between 1992 and 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 723 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
structured and subtly nuanced analysis of the religious presuppositions that inform recent artistic theory and practice - and, in so doing, recasts the cultural landscape of our era. For Taylor, twentieth-century art and architecture fall into three epochs: modernism and two contrasting views of postmodernism. He shows how we can understand these epochs through multiple senses of "disfiguring." While abstract painting and high modern architecture disfigure, in the sense
Kierkegaard's pseudonymous authorship : a study of time and the self by Mark C Taylor ( Book )

Refiguring the spiritual Beuys, Barney, Turrell, Goldsworthy by Mark C Taylor ( )
7 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 585 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Mark C. Taylor provocatively claims that contemporary art has lost its way. With the art market now mirroring the art of finance, many artists create works solely for the purpose of luring investors and inspiring trade among hedge funds and private equity firms. When art becomes a financial instrument, grounded in nothing but itself, it loses its critical edge. Its commoditization, corporatization, and financialization rob us of necessary perspective.Joseph Beuys, Matthew Barney, James Turrell and Andy Goldsworthy are artists who differ in style, yet they all defy the trends that

The moment of complexity : emerging network culture by Mark C Taylor ( Book )
17 editions published between 2001 and 2009 in English and held by 519 WorldCat member 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 age of information, media, and virtuality is transforming every aspect of human experience. Questions that have long haunted the philosophical imagination are becoming urgent practical concerns: Where does the natural end and the artificial begin?
