Patricia Joy Huntington reflects that loneliness does not only consist of the heartfelt absences of a friend, partner, spouse, or child, but rather stems from a radical breach in one's life journey. In this conceptually rigorous and warmly poetic book, Huntington develops a unique philosophy of receptivity and an original portrait of redemptive suffering. By fully exploring notions of pain, she also examines how the relation between the heart's musical attunement and meaning-filled life passages can lead one to a more spiritual philosophy and a more independent life. Huntington reveals the maternal face of God and encourages the feminine divine in her poignant narrative of overcoming. This deeply philosophical meditation offers a nuanced view of religious experience, providence, and transcendence.

About the Author:

She is author of Ecstatic Subjects, Utopia, and Recognition: Kristeva, Heidegger, and Irigaray and co-editor of Feminist Interpretations of Martin Heidegger.

Review:

"A brave and brilliant book, which brings to bear a rich array of philosophical sources to address one of the most pressing issues women face in their lives—loneliness." —Drucilla Cornell, Rutgers University

(Drucilla Cornell, Rutgers University)

"A melodious meditation on a theme from which we suffer too much to theorize so little. Reading this book will stimulate collective healing at the most intimate source of philosophical life." —Catherine Keller, Drew University

(Catherine Keller, Drew University)

Huntington (philosophy and religious studies, New College of Interdisciplinary Arts, Arizona State Univ.) endeavors to describe the emotional growth of women through the life span. Calling on Jungian and biblical studies, the author is particularly interested in describing the challenges women have in coping with loss. The book is likely to appeal to a segment of the reading population interested in nondenominational, spiritual reading. That a 'commentary on sources' substitutes for a bibliography is an indicator of the personal writing style.... Summing Up: Optional. General readers; professionals. -- ChoiceD. L. Loers, Wartburg College, November 2009

(D. L. Loers, Wartburg College 2009-01-00)

"Huntington... describe[s] the emotional growth of women through the life span. Calling on Jungian and biblical studies, the author is particularly interested in describing the challenges women have in coping with loss. -- Choice" —, November 2009
