The Yukon Quest International Sled Dog Race, billed as the toughest in the world, crosses 1,000 miles of forbidding land between Whitehorse and Fairbanks, Alaska, and pits man, woman and dog against the nastiest that nature has to offer. In 'Racing the White Silence,' Canadian journalist Adam Killick follows the racers and their dogs for two weeks, taking readers not only into the heartland of the Yukon and Alaska, but into the minds of the extraordinary people who dare to race. Equally important to this story are the dogs - determined animals with a truly astonishing physiology that allows them to outperform racehorses. And then, there is the land - inaccessible, sparsely populated, and unforgiving. With eight pages of Killick's own photographs, 'Racing the White Silence' is a mesmerizing eye-witness account of the strength and courage of both man and animal, and a portrait of the great Canadian North.

Rationality in its various expressions and innumerable applications sustains understanding and our sense of reality. It is traditionally differentiated according to its sources in the soul: in consciousness, in reason, in experience, and in elevation. Such a functional approach, however, leaves us searching for the common foundation harmonizing these rationalities. The perennial quest to resolve the aporias of rationality is finding in contemporary science’s focus on origins, on the generative roots of reality, tantalizing hints as to how this may be accomplished. This project is enhanced by the wave of recent phenomenology/ontopoiesis of life, which reveals/expresses the workings of the logos at the root of beingness and all rationality, whereby we gaze upon the prospect of a New Enlightenment. In the rays of this vision the revival of the intuitions of classical Islamic metaphysics, particularly intuition of the continuity of beingness in the gradations of life, receive fresh confirmation.
