In this engaging study, Donna Lazenby indicates both the promise and the limits of post-Christian attempts to grasp the mystical. While Woolf's immanence hesitates between a projection of self and a loss of self in relation to the horizon of nature, Murdoch's ethical transcendence hesitates between a realism requiring transcendence and a mere transcendentalism that would after all abolish it. Negatively, this indicates our need for a contemporary reworking of a more traditional real transcendence which would also be an immanence, and so save the self in losing it. This work points the way in that direction with elegance and originality. -- Catherine Pickstock, Reader in Philosophy and Theology, University of Cambridge, UK
