Collects the writings of prominent philosopher and cultural critic Richard Kearney from the past thirty years.

"Pulsates with the urgency of radical questioning, yet offers assurance born from a rare maturity of reflection. . . . A fascinating view of themes which preoccupied Irish cultural life for almost three decades."
Fran O’Rourke, University College, Dublin

"Richard Kearney is equally at home with Gadamer and Lady Gregory, Deirdre and Derrida; and his strength as a critic consists in bringing these twin currents, home-grown Irish and avant-garde European, into illuminating interaction. . . . These essays are an eloquent plea for a culturally heterogeneous Ireland."
Times Literary Supplement on Transitions by Richard Kearney

This collection contains writings on Irish politics, literature, drama, and visual arts, along with a series of dialogues with important cultural and intellectual figures. Previously unpublished pieces include essays on Joyce and on the Irish Hunger Memorial in New York City and a dialogue with Georges Dumézil on myth.
