Argument :

Having declared a few months earlier : "For fifty years psychology has been reintegrating the demons in Mankind. This is the ultimate legacy of psychoanalysis. I think that the next century's task, facing the most terrible menace that humanity has known, will be to reintroduce the gods", Malraux added : "the greatest problem with the end of this century will be the religious problem – in as radically different a shape from the one we know, as Christianity was from ancient religions" (quoted by Frédéric Lenoir, Le Monde des religions, September-October 2005).

Spring 2011 issue: Writing with Sound

Today we live in a society defined--in many senses, and by almost all the connotations associated with the word as well--by the word 'current'....

(Miller 32)
