The catalog includes a comprehensive essay by Lawrence Rinder, former director of the CCAC Wattis Institute, and George Lakoff, professor of linguistics at UC Berkeley; pieces by writers in the fields of art history, philosophy, cognitive science, theology, and linguistics; and a list of works in the exhibition.
