Reference: 9780791422724  

William Desmond's essay in intellectual autobiography is the fourth in a series of research papers commissioned by the Centre for Irish Studies at the NUI Galway.

"This idea of being in the middle or 'being between', of moving between different sets of extremities — between countries (Ireland and America), between religion and science, between philosophy and poetry, between knowledge and perplexity, between the particulars of reality and the universals of thought, between receding youth and approaching age — is a constant motif throughout his work." — Thomas Duddy, NUIG.
