Part 2 The arts and society Chapter 10 Women’s ‘nature’ and architectural design The question of women and architecture may be approached from dif ferent perspectives. One could, for example, catalogue in an encyclopaedic manner some of the contributions that women have made to the discipline world- wide, or here in South Africa as architects or as historians/theorists of architecture (Ora Joubert and Lindsay Bremner come to mind). Alterna- tively one could focus on a specific, acclaimed woman architect and her renowned designs or buildings, such as, for

The issue is discussed thoroughly by Kelle in Hosea 2, 60–63. Theodore W. Jennings, Jr., in fact, notes that in the biblical texts, stripping is used to humiliate only men, not women (Jacob‟s Wound: Homoerotic Narrative in the Literature of Ancient Israel [New York: Continuum, 2005], 153). 94.

NOTES Introduction 1 The early church would have difficulty knowing what to do with Tertullian. Most argued that he was a leading Latin thinker, but that his Montanism made him difficult to accept. Cyprian, although devoted to Tertullian‘s teachings, never mentioned him by name (Jerome, Vir. ill. 53). Other Latin writers would speak favorably of Tertullian, but found that his Montanism was a stain on his record (Hilary of Poitiers, Comm. Matt. 5.11; Vincent of Lérins, Comm. 18.24). 2 In my opinion, the recent, renewed interest in

Anthropological Prejudices in Austin and Husserl,” South African Journal of Philosophy 25 (2006):1–26 (2). Mark Cartledge equally infers a transpositional revelation in charismatic prophecy when he observes that “since spiritual perceptions need to be translated into the language of objective reality in the space-time continuum, the words and images used are symbolic of spiritual reality.” Idem, “Charismatic Prophecy,” 76.

, because of the burning of fossil carbon fuels and the manufacture of cement, carbon dioxide (an accumulation of which leads to a warming of the global climate) has been increasing in the earth’s atmosphere, and is likely to continue rising in quantity. Moreover, carbon dioxide molecules, although relatively small in number, can have a significant ef fect on the climate, and contribute to the ‘greenhouse ef fect’ of trapping heat inside the atmosphere. The writers of this report therefore conclude that humanity can and does contribute to climate change (1997: 13

anorexia as the existentially neces- sary erasure and desexualized reformation of the (demonically de-formed) es- sential sexual female self can be found in the anorectic’s inability to see, feel or otherwise perceive her sexual female body and its sensations, emotions and desires. In a multicultural study that linked oppression-based trauma to body/eating problems, Becky Thompson (1994) found that many African- American, Latina and lesbian women who develop eating problems following racial or sexual trauma do not imagine or “see themselves as having bodies at all

Hope amid all this despair comes from the now increasing body of evidence that shows that progress in reconcili- ation can happen and lead to peaceful results. The extensive resolution of the former conf licts in South Africa, Northern Ireland, Kosovo, Bosnia 86 R. John Elford and elsewhere are powerful examples of this. The work of often a few pio- neering individuals in establishing near impossible communication and reconciliation is invariably a key to this. They are
