About this product
- DescriptionContinental philosophy of religion has been dominated for two decades by postsecular and postmodern thought. This volume brings together a vanguard of scholars to ask what comes after the postsecular and the postmodern-that is, what is Continental philosophy of religion w? Against the subjugation of philosophy to theology, After the Postsecular and the Postmodern: New Essays in Continental Philosophy of Religion argues that philosophy of religion must either liberate itself from theological rms or mutate into a new practice of thinking in order to confront the challenges religion presents for our time. The essays do t propose a new orthodoxy but set the stage for new debates by reclaiming a practice of philosophy of religion that recovers and draws on the insights of a distinctly modern tradition of Continental philosophy, confronts the challenge of rethinking the secular in the light of the postsecular event, and calls for a move from strictly critical to speculative thought in order to experiment with what philosophy can do. This collection of essays is indispensable for anyone interested in the relationship between philosophy and theology, political questions regarding religion and in what contemporary speculative Continental philosophy has to add to philosophy of religion.
