The lead article examines the characteristics of angels as those are to be found in Genesis. The second article discusses the documentary as a distinct form of movie making. The third article considers the way language constrains and sometimes improves our understanding of two concepts: time and quality. The last article presents two lines of argument that are used to support religion as in fact supporting atheism.
The purpose of this e-journal is to use in tandem the techniques of literary criticism and social structural analysis to illuminate American politics and the various institutions in American society and sometimes matters more global, like religion or war, by turning an eye on the events and objects and performances that are considered art and entertainment, those defined broadly enough to include whatever is covered in newspapers and other media. Another concern is to pick up the texture of social life, both in the United States and in general, through the analysis of those events, objects and performances that are to be found in everyday life.
