Book News

Great news everyone, the manuscript which I was a contributor for has passed the referring with Lexington Press (U.S.). It will be published in the Fall of 2019 under the title: The College Lecture Today: An Interdisciplinary Defense for the Contemporary University. I have a chapter examining the pedagogy of the religious lecture examining the oral and literary structure of religious stories, the hero’s journey, the mono-myth, evolutionary psychology and why the psyche gravitates to these stories, and the balance struck in what I call the persona-narrative immersion dialectic. Among the thinkers drawn on in support of my chapter included St. Augsutine, Walter Ong, Carl Jung, and Joseph Campbell. A self-mandatory reference to Hegel was included.


    1. Yes. Thank you. We’re all very happy to hear it passed the review and will go into print. Though none of us will make any money on it! :p

      I had a good time doing the research, writing the chapter, and (re)acquainting myself with some old names I hadn’t read in some time.
