Review of Metaphysics 59 (4):911-912 (2006)

This book is the work of an American philosopher recognized for his contributions to the Continental form of postmodern philosophy of religion. Transcendence and Self-Transcendence is a sequel to Westphal’s earlier God, Guilt, and Death published in 1987. The readers of this latest study will soon realize that they are viewing the thoughtful work of a scholar who has mastered the relevant literature of his subject. The full, helpful footnotes throughout Transcendence and Self-Transcendence support that claim. This latest project completed by Merold Westphal takes one into the center of Continental philosophy of religion being engaged in from a phenomenalist perspective.
