About the Authors
  • Contributions by leading philosophers in the United States and Europe address the decline of metaphysics and the gap that has developed for the non-theological analysis of religion. What role should religion play in society at a time when metaphysics has come into disrepute? The metaphysical assumptions behind traditional theologies are no longer widely accepted, but it is unclear as to how this "end of metaphysics" should be interpreted, or what implications it has for our comprehension of religion.

    • Essays by leading philosophers on a timely question the place of religion in modern life
    • Chapters include arguments from both religious and anti-religious philosophers
    • Studies of quite different ways of reconceptualizing religion (e.g. papers discussing Kierkegaard, Heidegger, Levinas, and Strauss)
