Human Studies - Special issue on Transcendence and Transgression

by James Hardie-Bick

Ronnie Lippens (Criminology) and James Hardie-Bick (Sociology) have guest edited a special issue of Human Studies. This collection brings together a series of papers that explore the twin notions of transcendence and transgression. The collection includes three papers from our school. James Hardie-Bick explores the work of Ernest Becker on the nature of evil, Tony Kearon’s paper is on the bourgeois transcendent self and Ronnie Lippens' paper outlines three images of radical sovereignty in the work of Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko and Paul Rebeyrolle.
