Rein Undusk’s monograph “The Rhetoric of Culture. The Case of Infinity” was published as the seventh volume of oxymora, a series from the Under and Tuglas Literature Centre.


The book examines the conceptual dynamics in culture. Coming out with the claim that culture is broadly divided into three genres – aesthetics, rationality and theology – the book seeks to describe the formation and change of concepts between genres on the basis of the historical reception of infinity (from antiquity to French classicism).
