Part of the Radical Theologies and Philosophies book series (RADT)

Abstract

D. G. Leahy’s highly original philosophical thinking is a bid to transform all the categories of modern thought, eliminating the central notion of self and effecting a historic metanoia that ends modernity and inaugurates an absolute actuality characterized by simultaneous newness of the world (novitas mundi) and newness of mind (novitas mentis). This chapter introduces Leahy’s ideas to the uninitiated reader.
