Elegant Jeremiahs:  The Sage from Carlyle to Mailer - by George P. Landow [ELEGANT JEREMIAHS]

QUOTING T.H. Huxley:

"... the essence of the

prophetic operation

does not lie in its backward or

forward relation to the course

of time,

but in the fact that it is the

apprehension of that which

lies out of the sphere

of immediate knowledge;

the seeing of which,

to the natural sense

of the seer,

is invisible.." [p 25]

... a prophet in the Jewish sense interpreted correctly

the signs of their own times. [pp 17-18]
