about this item
The Bungle Book presents a demythology of six salient concepts central to our modern self-understanding, The “suspects” of the self, the machine, and God, as well as the “senses” of home, love, and freedom are subjected to an intense analytical scrutiny that is back-dropped by the work of Gadamer, Heidegger, Lingis, Midgely, and other critical voices. Book-ended by a detailed introduction that asks us to “unexpect the expected” and a conclusion that suggests that we need to stop compulsively making sense of living on in order to become more sensible about its human ambiguities,The Bungle Book will be of interest to any who take seriously the contemporary challenge of a global and interconnected existence.
