Description

Travelling from high culture to pop culture and back again, this book approaches cyberspace and Las Vegas through Hegel and Kant and reads Melville's "The Confidence-Man" through the film "Wall Street". As juxtapositions and associations proliferate, formerly uncharted territories of virtual culture disclose theological vestiges, showing that faith in contemporary culture is as unavoidable as it is elusive.
