    Wayne Proudfoot's Religious Experience, Pragmatism, and the Study of Religion.Matthew C. Bagger - 2017 - American Journal of Theology and Philosophy 38 (1):3.
    As anyone familiar with my own work would readily infer, I have virtually boundless admiration for Wayne Proudfoot’s Religious Experience. In fact, to be honest I think Religious Experience belongs together with Jeff Stout’s The Flight from Authority and David Hume’s Dialogues Concerning Natural Religion as the books that have most profoundly shaped my teaching and scholarship. More than the other two works, however, Religious Experience has informed my most basic attitudes about the point and proper pursuit of the shared (...)

    The Life of Reason: Reason in Religion by George Santayana.S. Corrington Robert - 2017 - American Journal of Theology and Philosophy 38 (1):99-103.
    In the history of religious naturalism, Santayana’s 1905 Reason in Religion, the third book of The Life of Reason, stands as a foundational text and is also among the most important texts that Santayana ever wrote. In it he lays out his highly unique conception of the religious life on the other side of traditional religious belief and creates an agnostic, even atheistic, perspective that yet finds a key place for the sheer poetry and transforming power of religion in personal (...)

    Theology After the Birth of God: Atheist Conceptions in Cognition and Culture by LeRon Shults.Daniel-Hughes Brandon - 2017 - American Journal of Theology and Philosophy 38 (1):92-96.
    LeRon Shults and Palgrave MacMillan are happy to announce the arrival of Postpartum Theology!Shults has changed his guiding metaphors during the short interval between the publication of Iconoclastic Theology: Gilles Deleuze and the Secretion of Atheism and Theology After the Birth of God. While Iconoclastic Theology emphasized the iconoclastic potential of theology with the help of Deleuze’s well-struck hammer blows, Theology After the Birth of God adopts natal imagery. The gods, Shults argues, were conceived in the human mind, born into (...)

    How to Write a Book: Religious Experience at Thirty.Davis G. Scott - 2017 - American Journal of Theology and Philosophy 38 (1):10.
    Some years ago I mentioned to Wayne Proudfoot what a pleasure it was to teach Religious Experience, if only to show a group of students how to develop an argument over the course of an entire book. Proudfoot shook his head and remarked that one reviewer praised the book as a helpful collection of essays. In the remarks that follow, I want to argue three points: 1) that Religious Experience is a remarkably tight argument, from beginning to end; 2) that (...)

    Gamwell on “The Comprehensive Question”: A Rawlsian Critique.Daniel A. Dombrowski - 2017 - American Journal of Theology and Philosophy 38 (1):27.
    John Rawls is widely acknowledged to be the most influential political philosopher of the twentieth century. But the implications of his views for both religious belief and religious believers are hotly contested. Some think that he is largely on the right track, indeed that he solves many of the traditional problems regarding the relationship between politics and religion.1 Others are critical of his approach.2 Perhaps the most insightful of these critics of Rawls, who argues from the perspective of a metaphysical (...)

    Naturalism as a Theological Problem: Kant, Idealism, the Chicago School, and Corrington.Dorrien Gary - 2017 - American Journal of Theology and Philosophy 38 (1):49.
    My subject is the idea of naturalism in liberal theology, an idea that Robert Corrington has taken far beyond liberal Christianity and religion in his many brilliant books on aesthetic naturalism. I am going to tell this story in a way that leads to Corrington without saying that liberal theology itself leads to Corrington. Liberal theology, liberation theology, religious naturalism, and progressive Christian social ethics are precious to me, and these things are taught almost exclusively in liberal theological seminaries.The entire (...)

    Philosophical Theology Vol. 2, Existence by Robert Cummings Neville.B. Irvine Andrew - 2017 - American Journal of Theology and Philosophy 38 (1):89-92.
    Existence, the middle volume of Neville’s Philosophical Theology, offers a theological anthropology, and so deals with “religious dimensions of human nature, its conditions, and processes”. As such it contrasts with the mainly metaphysical concerns of the volume that precedes it, Ultimates, and the social scientific interests of the volume that follows, Religion. After a preface and introduction, the volume is arranged in four parts, each of four chapters. The parts deal respectively with “ultimate boundary conditions” of human existence set by (...)

    The Divine Manifold by Roland Faber.J. Roberts Austin - 2017 - American Journal of Theology and Philosophy 38 (1):86-89.
    Over the last fifteen years, the largely American tradition of process theology has moved in new directions as it has been lured into sustained engagements with French poststructuralism. Roland Faber’s The Divine Manifold is perhaps the most impressive example of this new shape that process thought is taking on in the twenty-first century. For those who would dismiss Whitehead’s philosophy as outdated or irrelevant to our present context, Faber’s Manifold offers a startlingly novel interpretation of the great metaphysician and a (...)

    Black Lives and Sacred Humanity: Toward an African American Religious Naturalism by Carol Wayne White.Slater Gary - 2017 - American Journal of Theology and Philosophy 38 (1):96-99.
    It speaks to the illogic of our public life that the slogan “All Lives Matter” has come to stand directly against “Black Lives Matter” within contemporary discourse on race. Carol Wayne White’s Black Lives and Sacred Humanity, among its other achievements, confirms the absurdity of such an opposition. White shows how historic efforts to defend and define the humanity of African Americans offer a vision in which all human lives do not simply matter but are in fact sacred within nature. (...)

    Logic is Rooted in the Social Principle: Peirce, Pansemioticism, and the Possibility of Transpersonal Knowledge.Robert Smid - 2017 - American Journal of Theology and Philosophy 38 (1):70.
    The purpose of this article is to explore the question of the “location” of knowledge relative to knowers and things known in the work of Charles Sanders Peirce. This is an aspect Peirce’s work that is rarely addressed directly, and still more rarely addressed with any clarity. Peirce seems to have been aware of this, often demurring that he “is not yet quite free from the mist” on the issue.1 Similarly, Peirce’s interpreters have expressed little interest in this question,2 preferring (...)

    The Schleiermacher Gambit and the Desacralization of Culture: Retrospective Remarks on Wayne Proudfoot's Religious Experience.James Wetzel - 2017 - American Journal of Theology and Philosophy 38 (1):20.
    When Religious Experience went into production with the University of California Press, I was still in residence as a graduate student at Columbia, where I was working with Wayne Proudfoot on issues in the philosophy of religion and philosophical theology. Although this is now more than thirty years ago, I distinctively remember having a conversation with him about whether Religious Experience should have a subtitle and, if so, what. Proudfoot’s disposition as a writer is hardly baroque, and so he decided, (...)
