About the Author

John Sallis is Frederick J. Adelmann, S.J. Professor of Philosophy at Boston College. He is author of Force of Imagination (IUP, 2000) and On Translation (IUP, 2002).

Reviews

"Philosophers have become increasingly concerned with the places and spaces of our Earth. They are finally coming to acknowledge their situatedness, and to be grateful for it. Sallis's wonderful book evokes in word and image the power of places that bring him--and now us--to think, feel, imagine, and write." --David Farrell Krell, DePaul University
