Post-Secular Philosophy: Between Philosophy and Theology

Routledge (1998)
Presumed long-since dead by Nietzsche, God has made a remarkable comeback in the recent work of Derrida and Levinas who have made people think about theology and what it has to offer in light of the nihilism of postmodern thinking. Post-Secular Philosophy explores the relationship between theology, the major thinkers of the philosophical tradition, and the broader debates about God within modern philosophy and the role of God in postmodern thought. Beginning with Descartes, Kant and Hegel and ending with Derrida, Levinas and Baudrillard, this book provides a thorough discussion of the philosophical and cultural importance of theology within postmodernism. Fifteen chapters consider each of these philosophers in turn: Descartes, Kant, Hegel, Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, Heidegger, Freud, Wittgenstein, Lacan, Levinas, Derrida, Marion, Kristeva, Irigaray and Baudrillard.
