    Defining Religion: Essays in Philosophy of Religion by Robert Cummings Neville.Nathaniel F. Barrett - 2021 - American Journal of Theology and Philosophy 41 (2):188-192.
    In this book, Robert Neville brings together twenty essays that articulate and support his understanding of religion as "human engagement of ultimacy". Most of the essays were originally prepared during the same period in which he wrote his three-volume Philosophical Theology ; accordingly, many of the early chapters can serve as introductions to the latter work. In later chapters, Neville sharpens his view of religion in conversation with various friendly rivals, including philosophical theologians and pragmatists. Most of the essays were (...)

    Whitehead's Radically Temporalist Metaphysics: Recovering the Seriousness of Time by George Allan.Jesse Berger - 2021 - American Journal of Theology and Philosophy 41 (2):203-206.
    Some process philosophers—David Ray Griffin chief among them—held that Whitehead offered a vision of the world that is both postmodern and constructive. Specifically, he viewed the reformed theology of process thought as essential to its constructive efficacy. With this collection of essays, George Allan has articulated a cogent case against this position. That is, Whitehead's system does offer a postmodern and constructive vision of the world—but precisely at the expense of a process theology. In his account, a postmodern and constructive (...)

    Effing the Ineffable: Existential Mumblings at the Limits of Language by Wesley J. Wildman.Benjamin J. Chicka - 2021 - American Journal of Theology and Philosophy 41 (2):177-180.
    Upon first glance, readers might not think there is much new to be found in the most recent book from Wesley Wildman. After all, seven of the nine chapters contained between its covers began as essays previously published. However, this volume is also the sixth of six in his Religious Philosophy series, so clearly the author is making something of its contents. Indeed, there is much that is worthwhile to be found within. Taken together with the new material, this collection (...)

    Propositions in the Making: Experiments in a Whiteheadian Laboratory Ed. By Roland Faber, Michael Halewood and Andrew M. Davis.Vincent Colapietro - 2021 - American Journal of Theology and Philosophy 41 (2):192-195.
    This volume grew out of a conference held in 2016 at the Claremont School of Theology, while the conference itself grew out of "innovative conversations between philosophers, Erin Manning and Brian Massumi, and process philosophers, Roland Faber and Michael Halewood". Its title in effect conjoins a Whiteheadian conception of propositions and a Jamesian understanding of "things.". As such, a proposition is set forth on behalf of "a collectivity...

    Conceiving an Alternative: Philosophical Resources for an Ecological Civilization Ed. By Demian Wheeler and David E. Conner.Mary L. Keller - 2021 - American Journal of Theology and Philosophy 41 (2):196-199.
    It is with sincere appreciation that I commend this edited collection to readers of the AJTP. The collection meets the task of promoting lively discussion that addresses the interface between theology and philosophy, especially as shaped by empiricist, naturalist, process, and pragmatist traditions. As the most recent volume in the series Toward Ecological Civilization, it delivers papers from the Tenth International Whitehead Conference and Ninth International Forum on Ecological Civilization, held in Claremont, California, June 2015, thereby delivering on a second (...)

    Pragmatism and Naturalism: Scientific and Social Inquiry After Representationalism Ed. By Matthew Bagger.David Rohr - 2021 - American Journal of Theology and Philosophy 41 (2):181-184.
    Containing ten original essays by leading philosophers and scholars of religion, this volume is an important resource for anyone interested in the complex, evolving relationship between pragmatism and philosophical naturalism, especially as this bears upon the study and practice of religion. Matthew Bagger's general introduction and his introductions to each section are important contributions in their own right, providing the historical and contextual background needed to weave the volume's disparate essays into a coherent whole. After briefly summarizing each essay, this (...)

    Contemporary Philosophical Proposals for the University: Toward a Philosophy of Higher Education Ed. By Aaron Stoller and Eli Kramer.C. Hannah Schell - 2021 - American Journal of Theology and Philosophy 41 (2):184-188.
    In The Emergence of the American University, Laurence Veysey argued that by the end of the nineteenth century, four rival conceptions about the purpose of higher education were already in contention: it should develop moral and mental discipline, it should prepare students for employment and participation in a democratic culture, it should be a place for research, and it should support liberal culture. Veysey went on to note that the focus on moral discipline was already waning in the early years (...)

    Practicing Safe Sects: Religious Reproduction in Scientific and Philosophical Perspective by F. LeRon Shults.Donald Wayne Viney - 2021 - American Journal of Theology and Philosophy 41 (2):199-203.
    Behind the playful title of this book there is a serious theory about the origin of religions, as well as an argument concerning their usefulness and the truth claims they make. Anyone familiar with Shults's work will recognize this book as a companion to his Theology after the Birth of God—and, to a lesser extent, Iconoclastic Theology: Gilles Deleuze and the Secretion of Atheism—repeating the basic argument but adding an avalanche of more recent research, engaging some different interlocutors, and outlining (...)
