In the Beginning was a Word
How language knits reality together
In the Beginning Was a Word is an accessible discussion intended for those who find delight in the extraordinary capacity of language to express what is otherwise inexpressible. Though only vibrations in the air, words possess a power akin to that of the law of gravity, by which physical objects are drawn together by mutual attraction, or the law of love, which orders and unifies metaphysical reality.
