About the Author:

Peter Salm is Professor of Comparative Literature at Case Western Reserve University.

Review:

A fascinating study of the spatio-temporal metaphor of the 'all-encompassing point'. Especially enjoyed Salm's insights into Woolf and Mann. (R. J. Nelson, Case Western Reserve University Philosophy and Literature)

I read it without putting it down. It is a remarkable job on one of the great themes, most persuasively argued and full of good stuff. (Victor Lange, Professor Emeritus, Princeton University Philosophy and Literature)

In a pleasurably rich, insightful, and, yet, disturbing book, Peter Salm ponders the philosophical-literary moment that creates our vision of experience....The book stands on its own because it stands squarely in the shoes of an author who has confronted his texts for a long time and reflected in terms of that very confrontation.
