The Morning After Homecoming

Prizio: “Silliman I like this bookshelf. Theology on the bottom, philosophy in the middle and poetry on top.”
Silliman: “I don’t think it was intentional, but that’s kind of cool.”
Slater: “He’s really reaching for a foundationalism there.”
Silliman: “I don’t know how that would work – are we building up from the bottom, depending from the top or working from the middle.”
Prizio: “Oh no, it’s truth versus beauty.”
Slater: “Dante would have to be on top.”
Silliman: “That’s theology and poetry: Dante’s a duck-rabbit.”
