Walker Percy, Loss of the Creature: the mediated experince

Casper David Friedrich's, Wanderer above the Sea Fog, 1880 and Roger Minick's, Woman w/scarf at Inspiration Point, 1980 seemed to be a good set of images to go along with our discussion of Percy's essay. Percy explores the relationship between language and understanding, between the sovereign experience, mediation, and human agency. In these works we witness the what is to be the sovereign experience but in both cases to what degree are those experiences being mediated?
