Description

Building on Jonathan Z. Smith’s insight that “[t]hings that are interesting, things that become objects of interest, are things in which one has a stake, things which place one at risk, things for which one is willing to pay some price, things which make a difference,” Cameron examines in careful detail three areas in which Smith took a special interest and which, for him, had something at stake: theory, method, and a liberal arts education.
