Subject and Object in Modern Theology [Book Review]

Review of Metaphysics 10 (2):358-359 (1956)

Seven lectures, in which some of the major issues of post-Kantian theology and philosophy of religion are discussed in the course of a critical examination of the contributions of Kierkegaard, Heidegger, Buber, and Barth to religious inquiry. The author's choice of the subject-object relation as the "perspective pinhole" through which to look at the modern theological scene is a good one. It is not entirely clear, however, whether "the larger problem of insight into the nature of the truth of the Christian religion is...served" because, although individual critical comments are well taken, the concluding lecture is somewhat inconclusive.--C. M.
