For, while the order of the alphabet itself became fixed very soon after letters were first invented, their ability to sort and store and organize proved far less obvious. She lays out the gradual triumph of alphabetical order, from its possible earliest days as a sorting tool in the Great Library in Alexandria in the 3rd century BCE, to its current decline in prominence in our digital age.342 pages, bibliography, notes, index

Description:
Condition: clean copy.Content: This book is about the ascetic self in the scriptural religions of Christianity, Buddhism, and Hinduism. The author claims that asceticism can be understood as the internalization of tradition, the shaping of the narrative of a life in accordance with the narrative of tradition that might be seen as the performance of the memory of tradition. Such a performance contains an ambiguity or distance between the general intention to eradicate the will, or in some sense to erase the self and the affirmation of will in ascetic performance such as weakening the body through fasting. Ascetism must therefore be seen in the context of ritual. The book also offers a new paradigm for comparative religion more generally, one that avoids the inadequate choices of either examining religions through overarching categories on the one hand or the abandoning of any comparative endeavor that focuses purely on area-specific study on the other.288 pages, bibliography, index.
