Word of the Week: Aleatory

As in:  “Connolly was an aleatory thinker, and one of the primary characteristics of his writing is that any given position was formulated according to the specific conditions of the moment that produced it, rather than forced to conform to an a priori system of interpretation.” (Dobbins, 2000, p. 609)

Dobbins, G. (2000). Whenever green is red: James Connolly and postcolonial theory. Nepantla: Views from South, 1(3), 605-648. Retrieved from http://muse.jhu.edu.library.emmanuel.edu:2048/journals/nepantla/summary/v001/1.3dobbins.html

The library’s Credo Reference collection of e-books includes several entries on aleatory.
