Presence reconsiders the notion of 'presence' in objects. The first book to address the issue directly, it contains a series of case studies covering a broad geographical and chronological range from ancient Greece and the Incas to industrial America and contemporary India, as well as examples from the canon of western European art. The studies reveal the widespread evidence for this striking form of response and allow readers to see how 'presence' is evoked and either embraced or repressed in differing historical and cultural contexts.

In Human Presence Erickson offers a thoughtful study of some fundamental features of human nature central to a theoretical and therapeutic understanding of human existence. Though the language employed is largely philosophical, interfaces with psychoanalysis and religion are made in order to stimulate dialogue that reaches beyond the traditional boundaries of discipline. It is toward more such dialogue that Human Presence serves as preparation. The author provides a probing contrast between traditional psychoanalysis and existential conceptions of time consciousness and he articulates the issues involved in experience or lived time in their centrality to human self-understanding. The author suggests how both conceptions, the existential and the psychoanalytic, enlarge yet limit awareness and insight. -- Publisher description.

Eucharist: Our sacrament of unity--that we never stop discussing and debating. Nor should we! Nathan Mitchells earlier book Cult and Controversy demonstrated the breadth of his scholarship on the history of Eucharistic practice and piety in the Church. In this expanded edition of Real Presence, Dr. Mitchell brings that scholarship to bear on the contemporary dialogue about the Eucharist. What he says is vital to Sunday practice and parish life. Teachers, preachers, catechists, and students especially will find help in Mitchells insights into the Catechism of the Catholic Church and its teachings on the Eucharist; into the ways that contemporary biblical scholarship opens up our understanding of Jesus and the Eucharist; into those two wonderful words that have again and again challenged the Church to go ever deeper--real presence; and into the theologies of the Eucharist coming from contemporary Europeans such as Jean-Luc Marion, Herbert McCabe, and Catherine Pickstock. This new and expanded edition also includes Nathan Mitchells essay 'Eucharist in the Work of Some Contemporary European Theologians' and an expanded commentary on Eucharist in Luke's Gospel.Nathan Mitchell holds a doctorate in liturgical studies from the University of Notre Dame and is associate director for research at the Notre Dame Center for Pastoral Liturgy.

The second biannual congress of the Leuven Encounters in Systematic Theology (LEST II, Nov. 3-6, 1999) was dedicated to a fundamental theological reflection on the question of how to conceive of 'sacramental presence in a postmodern context'. This volume contains the main lectures presented at the conference, as well as the formal responses to those lectures and a selection of supplementary papers. These papers examine the Christian claim that God is present in human history, in the light of the contemporary rethinking of the relationship between transcendence and immanence. In addition to an extensive introductory paper by L. Boeve, contributions include, among others, M.-C. Bingemer, L.-M. Chauvet, G. De Schrijver, K. Hart, W. Jeanrond, F. Kerr, J.-Y. Lacoste, T. Merrigan, P. Moyaert, D. Power, I. Verhack and G. Ward.

Presence in Play: A Critique of Theories of Presence in the Theatre is the first comprehensive survey and analysis of theatrical presence to be published. Theatre as an art form has often been associated with notions of presence. The 'live' immediacy of the actor, the unmediated unfolding of dramatic action and the 'energy' generated through an actor-audience relationship are among the ideas frequently used to explain theatrical experience – and all are underpinned by some understanding of 'presence.' Precisely what is meant by presence in the theatre is part of what Presence in Play sets out to explain. While this work is rooted in twentieth century theatre and performance since modernism, the author draws on a range of historical and theoretical material. Encompassing ideas from semiotics and phenomenology, Presence in Play puts forward a framework for thinking about presence in theatre, enriched by poststructuralist theory, forcefully arguing in favour of 'presence' as a key concept for theatre studies today.

The Reverend Ralph Harper, a philosopher and theologian, has been credited with introducing existentialism to North America in 1948 with his work Existentialism: A Theory of Man. Forty years later, Harper delved deeper into the interior life of the human imagination in On Presence: Variations and Reflections. Winner of the 1992 Grawemeyer Award in Religion, On Presence is an insightful articulation of mankind's experience of presence. Drawing from philosophers like Kierkegaard, Heidegger, and Marcel, theologians like Augustine, Aquinas, and Tillich, mystics like Meister Eckhart and John of the Cross, and novelists like Dostoevsky and Proust, this compelling work considers the transcendent and religious dimensions of the ordinary mysteries in everyday life.

The U.S. and Japan released the Final Report of the Special Action Committee on Okinawa on Dec. 2, 1996. The report made 27 recommendations to reduce the impact of the U.S. military operations and training on the Okinawan people and thereby strengthen the U.S.-Japan alliance. This report reviews the contents of the Final Report, evaluates the impact on readiness of U.S. forces based on Okinawa after implementation of the report recommendations, estimates the U.S. cost of implementing the recommendations, and determines the benefit or necessity of having U.S. Marine Corps forces on Okinawa.

The Presence of Self

It is by appearing and speaking to others that a self is given a presence, a

appearances need to be seen and noticed, and speaking needs to be hearkened

Drawing on ideas from Charles Sanders Peirce, George Herbert Mead, Kenneth Burke, and Mikhail Bakhtin, this work focuses on the centrality of the social act in describing and understanding the beingness of the human individual, situating such acts in dialogic and rhetorical processes. Such processes enable actors to give presence to their selves and, it is claimed, put them into play by using both a logic and a poetic of identity. These arguments are supported by an analysis of everyday conversations, certain inter-personal encounters, and acts of reading and watching sporting engagements.
