Voices are material, somatic, and musical. They are also meaningful-they give body to concepts that cannot exist in abstractions. Through explorations of theology, pedagogy, translation, and more, this book works toward reintegrating our thinking about words as a fleshy combining of meaning and music.
Karmen MacKendrick is a professor of philosophy and an associate chair of the McDevitt Center for Creativity and Innovation at Le Moyne College. Her work in philosophical theology is entangled with several other disciplines, particularly those involved with words, with flesh, or with the pleasures to be taken in both. These preoccupations appear in several books, most recently Divine Enticement: Theological Seductions (Fordham University Press, 2013).
