    Breaking White Supremacy: The Black Social Gospel as New Abolitionism.Gary Dorrien - 2016 - American Journal of Theology and Philosophy 37 (3):197-216.
    I apologize for not being William Connolly. You can get me any year, and I feel badly that Connolly had to cancel. I considered giving one of my Hegel and Whitehead talks, which would have been a poor substitute for the world of becoming that Connolly would have discussed. But nearly everyone who goes to AJTP gatherings has already heard me on things Hegelian and Whiteheadian, and I have a new book that means much more to me than those things. (...)

  4. American Democratic Socialism: History, Politics, Religion, and Theory.Gary Dorrien - 2021 - Yale University Press.
    _A sweeping, ambitious history of American democratic socialism from one of the world’s leading intellectual historians and social ethicists_ “Dorrien is supremely qualified for the task he has set himself in this very thoughtful, necessary, and timely book.”—Maurice Isserman, author of _The Other American: The Life of Michael Harrington _ Democratic socialism is ascending in the United States as a consequence of a widespread recognition that global capitalism works only for a minority and is harming the planet’s ecology. This history (...)

    Hegelian Spirit in Question: The Idealistic Spirit of Liberal Theology.Gary Dorrien - 2011 - American Journal of Theology and Philosophy 32 (1):3 - 22.
    My subject is the role of philosophical and social idealism in liberal theology, and I will argue that both are tremendously significant in the history of liberal theology and both are problematic, adaptable, and still important. There is no such thing as a vital or relevant progressive theology that does not speak with idealistic conviction, however problematic that may be. I am currently writing a large book on this topic, so some compression is necessary today.The book begins, as it must, (...)

    Naturalism as a Theological Problem: Kant, Idealism, the Chicago School, and Corrington.Gary Dorrien - 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 (...)

    Neo-Hegelian Theology as Process Theodicy and Socialist Idealism.Gary Dorrien - 2020 - American Journal of Theology and Philosophy 41 (2-3):7.
    My commitment to a religious idealism that emphasizes struggle and tragedy, accepts liberationist criticism, and espouses democratic socialist politics shapes what I take from Hegel and Paul Tillich. Hegel is both alien to me and distinctly the thinker with whom I am never done. Karl Marx and Søren Kierkegaard scored against Hegel by emphasizing the situation of the knower, but both were one-sided compared to Hegel. Emmanuel Levinas scored against Hegel by railing against the constraints of ontology and upholding the (...)

    Post-Hegelian Becoming: Religious Philosophy as Entangled Discontent.Gary Dorrien - 2020 - American Journal of Theology and Philosophy 41 (1):5.
    Realistic theologies are keyed to what is said to be actual, reading knowledge of God and the aims of ethical action from the given. Idealistic theologies are keyed to claims about truths transcending actuality. I am opposed to lifting realistic actuality above idealistic discontent, even as I acknowledge that idealism poses the greater danger. A wholly realistic theology would be a monstrosity, a sanctification of mediocrity, inertia, oppression, domination, exclusion, and moral indifference. Christianity is inherently idealistic in describing the being (...)

    _An expansive and ambitious intellectual history of democratic socialism from one of the world’s leading intellectual historians and social ethicists_ The fallout from twenty years of neoliberal economic globalism has sparked a surge of interest in the old idea of democratic socialism—a democracy in which the people control the economy and government, no group dominates any other, and every citizen is free, equal, and included. With a focus on the intertwined legacies of Christian socialism and Social Democratic politics in Britain (...)

    The New Abolition: W. E. B. Du Bois and the Black Social Gospel.Gary J. Dorrien - 2015 - Yale University Press.
    The black social gospel emerged from the trauma of Reconstruction to ask what a “new abolition” would require in American society. It became an important tradition of religious thought and resistance, helping to create an alternative public sphere of excluded voices and providing the intellectual underpinnings of the civil rights movement. This tradition has been seriously overlooked, despite its immense legacy. In this groundbreaking work, Gary Dorrien describes the early history of the black social gospel from its nineteenth-century founding to (...)

    True Religion, Mystical Unity, and the Disinherited: Howard Thurman and the Black Social Gospel.Gary Dorrien - 2018 - American Journal of Theology and Philosophy 39 (1):74.
    The black social gospel leaders that came of age in the 1920s and '30s were long on graduate degrees, simmering anger, racial justice ambition, and lecture circuit eloquence. Most of them already assumed the social gospel when they began their careers. They came through the doors of educational achievement and ecumenical conferences, and a few became prominent by compelling the respect of audiences on both sides of the color line. Mordecai Johnson, building a black intellectual powerhouse at Howard University, epitomized (...)

  26. The Children of Light and the Children of Darkness: A Vindication of Democracy and a Critique of its Traditional Defense.Reinhold Niebuhr & Gary Dorrien - 2011 - University of Chicago Press.
    _The Children of Light and the Children of Darkness_, first published in 1944, is considered one of the most profound and relevant works by the influential theologian Reinhold Niebuhr, and certainly the fullest statement of his political philosophy. Written and first read during the prolonged, tragic world war between totalitarian and democratic forces, Niebuhr’s book took up the timely question of how democracy as a political system could best be defended. Most proponents of democracy, Niebuhr claimed, were “children of light,” (...)
