Meaning Beyond Reason, a collection of essays by Anthony Caponi, is now available in paperback.
In whatever man undertakes, in everything he depicts or describes, be it God, art or nature, he mostly describes himself--his thoughts and aspirations, his need to give free play to his creative imagination.
excerpt from "Meaning Beyond Reason"
What people are saying about Meaning Beyond Reason:
"The charm and power of Caponi's meditations will engage those thoughtfully trying to connect the dots of human experience. Everyone interested in art, philosophy, and everyday experience should read this book. Caponi's genius cuts to the core."
Author of Walking on Air in a Field of Greens
"Anthony Caponi has explored, in depth, ideas that challenge our reliance on reason and overly rationalized verbalization in favor of intuitive knowledge and deeply felt, vital engagement in life. He applies these insights to art and religion, linking aesthetic and spiritual experience, dance, music, poetry, painting, sculpture, architecture and science. His inquiry both affirms and transcends our human, earth-bound condition."
