About this product
- DescriptionLudwig Feuerbach is traditionally regarded as a significant but transitional figure in the development of nineteenth-century German thought. Readings of Feuerbach's The Essence of Christianity tend to focus on those features which made it seem liberating to the Young Hegelians: namely, its criticism of reification as abstraction, and its interpretation of religion as alienation. In this book, Van Harvey claims that this is a limited and inadequate view of Feuerbach's work, especially of his critique of religion. The author argues that Feuerbach's philosophical development led him to a much more complex and interesting theory of religion which he expounded in works which have been virtually igred hitherto. By exploring these works, Harvey gives them a significant contemporary re-statement, and brings Feuerbach into conversation with a number of modern theorists of religion.
- Author BiographyProfessor Van A. Harvey is George Edwin Burnell Professor of Religious Studies Emeritus at Stanford University. He is the author of Handbook of Theological Terms (1964) and The Historian and the Believer (1966). Feuerbach and the Interpretation of Religion won the American Academy of Religion Award for Excellence in Constructive-Reflective Studies.
