Rethinking Philosophy of Religion: Approaches from Continental Philosophy

Front Cover
Philip Goodchild
Fordham Univ Press, 2002 - Philosophy - 339 pages

These original essays reconceive the place of religion for critical thought following the recent 'turn to religion' in Continental philosophy, framing new issues for exploration, including questions of justice, anxiety, and evil; the sublime, and of the soul haunting genetics; how reason may be reshaped by new religious movements and by ritual and experience.

Contributors: Pamela Sue Anderson, Gary Banham, Bettina Bergo, John Caputo, Clayton Crockett, Jonathan Ellsworth, Philip Goodchild, Matthew Halteman, Wayne Hudson, Grace Jantzen, Donna Jowett, Greg Sadler, Graham Ward, and Edith Wyschogrod.

Page 8 - Reason is, and ought only to be the slave of the passions, and can never pretend to any other office than to serve and obey them.
Page 22 - opening to the future or to the coming of the other as the advent of justice, but without horizon of expectation and without prophetic prefiguration. The coming of the other can only emerge as a singular event when no anticipation sees it coming, when the other and death—and radical evil—can come as a surprise at any moment.
