Book Description World Wisdom May 2009, 2009. Paper Back. Book Condition: New. 'That we are living through a time of disintegration is a fact by now merely obvious to anybody who is paying attention,' writes Wendell Berry. T.S. Eliot called the modern malady a 'dissociation of sensibility.' Ananda Coomaraswamy wrote of the divorce of usefulness and beauty. Brian Keeble addresses the impoverishment of these multiple divorces to aid in the healing of the division between God and work. If things are falling apart, how are they to be put together again? 'Only by human work,' writes Berry; but the work must be of a particular quality and kind. The subjects of God and Work-which include typeface designers and sculptors, philosophers and poets, calligraphers, stonecutters and architects-are concerned with the spiritual substance of human vocation, and each has contributed to 'the never-ending task of determining what it means to be human and thence to what this meaning obliges us to undertake if we are to attempt a union of the contemplative and active life' (Keeble). Keeble is, in his own right, a contributor to the traditional arts as a book designer and publisher, and his studies of Coomaraswamy, W.R. Lethaby, Edward Johnston, Eric Gill, Frithjof Schuon and William Blake exemplify the kind of work he defends in these essays. 191 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 20110608188364
