Sacred Interconnections: Postmodern Spirituality, Political Economy, and Art

Front Cover
David Ray Griffin
SUNY Press, Jan 1, 1990 - Religion - 227 pages
This book shows the interconnections between postmodernism, religion, politics, economics, and art. It shows that the awareness of interconnectedness is at the center of the postmodern sensibility. Sacred Interconnections illustrates the rejection of the modern idea that these subjects can be discussed as separate disciplines.

While the term postmodern has been widely used for deconstructive, cynical, even nihilistic attitude, especially in the world of art and literature, the book represents the emergence of a reconstructive, reenchanting postmodernism, even within the artistic and literary circles.
