    Levinas and Kierkegaard in Dialogue.Merold Westphal - 2008 - Indiana University Press.
    Few philosophers have devoted more than passing attention to similarities between the thought of Søren Kierkegaard, a Danish Christian, and Emmanuel Levinas, a French Jew. Here, one of philosophy of religion's most distinctive voices offers a sustained comparison. Focusing on questions surrounding otherness, transcendence, postmodernity, and the nature of religious thought, Merold Westphal draws readers into a dialogue between the two thinkers. Westphal's masterful command of both philosophies shows that each can learn from the other. Levinas and Kierkegaard in Dialogue (...)

    Hegel, Hinrichs, and Schleiermacher on Feeling and Reason in Religion: The Texts of Their 1821–22 Debate. [REVIEW]Merold Westphal - 1989 - The Owl of Minerva 20 (2):240-241.
    This volume provides a remarkable collection of materials that should prove useful to scholars with a variety of interests. The major item is the first translation into any language of Hermann Friedrich Wilhelm Hinrichs’ Religion in its Internal Relation to Systematic Knowledge. Though it can be claimed that Hinrichs is the first Hegelian and the founder of the Hegelian Right, this work would have fallen into even more total obscurity than it has had it not been accompanied by a Foreword (...)

    Overcoming Onto-Theology: Toward a Postmodern Christian Faith.Merold Westphal - 2001 - Fordham University Press.
    Overcoming Onto-theology is a stunning collection of essays by Merold Westphal, one of America’s leading continental philosophers of religion, in which Westphal carefully explores the nature and the structure of a postmodern Christian philosophy. Written with characteristic clarity and charm, Westphal offers masterful studies of Heidegger’s early lectures on Paul and Augustine, the idea of hermeneutics, Schleiermacher, Hegel, Derrida, and Nietzsche, all in the service of building his argument that postmodern thinking offers an indispensable tool for rethinking Christian faith. A (...)

    Vision and Voice: Phenomenology and Theology in the Work of Jean-Luc Marion. [REVIEW]Merold Westphal - 2006 - International Journal for Philosophy of Religion 60 (1/3):117 - 137.
    The kind of phenomenology that can be useful to theology will be a hermeneutical phenomenology, one that takes us beyond the Cartesian/Husserlian ideal of presuppositionless intuition. It will also be a phenomenology of inverse intentionality, one in which the constituting subject is constituted by the look and the voice of another. In light of these suggestions, the phenomenology of Jean-Luc Marion is defended against three critiques, namely that it compromises the boundary between phenomenology and theology, that the theology it serves (...)

    Religious faith is often critiqued as irrational either because its beliefs do not rise to the level of knowledge as defined by some philosophical theory or be­cause it rests on emotion rather than knowledge. Or both. Kierkegaard helps us to see how these arguments rest on a misunderstanding of all three terms: faith, reason, and emotion.

    Hegel.Merold Westphal - 1974 - The Owl of Minerva 5 (4):1-4.
    This book invites comparison with Emil Fackenheim’s The Religious Dimension in Hegel’s Thought in that it seeks to illuminate the whole of Hegel’s thought from the perspective of a dimension which is taken to be central. In this case it is the political dimension and reference to the whole of Hegel has both a diachronic and a synchronic sense. For the two central theses of the book are that Hegel’s development is the key to understanding his mature system and that (...)

    Hegel’s Angst Vor Dem Sollen.Merold Westphal - 1994 - The Owl of Minerva 25 (2):187-194.
    The recent appearance of a new translation of The Encyclopedia Logic has provided me with a welcome opportunity to return once again to the study of this little treasure. I shall not challenge the judgment that one must give pride of place to Hegel’s Science of Logic in seeking to understand his account of das Logische. But my heart belongs to the “Lesser Logic,” and I will not challenge its love in the name of that judgment. If only Kant’s “Lesser (...)

    Aquinas and Onto-Theology.Merold Westphal - 2006 - American Catholic Philosophical Quarterly 80 (2):173-191.
    For Heidegger, onto-theology is the use of abstract, impersonal categories under the principle of sufficient reason that has one goal and two results. The goal is to make God fully intelligible to human understanding. The results are the disappearance of mystery from our understanding of God and the loss of any religious significance for the “God” that results. I argue that Aquinas is not guilty of onto-theology because his use of abstract, impersonal categories is subsumed (aufgehoben, teleologically suspended) in his (...)

    Kierkegaard’s Religiousness C.Merold Westphal - 2004 - International Philosophical Quarterly 44 (4):535-548.
    Against two recent critiques, I defend my thesis that such later writings of Kierkegaard as Works of Love and Practice in Christianity introduce an understanding of Christianity that I call Religiousness C, into which Religiousness B as presented in ConcludingUnscientific Postscript is teleologically suspended. For Religiousness B, Christ is the Paradox to be believed, while for Religiousness C, Christ is the Pattern, Paradigm, or Prototype to be imitated. In the former case, the offense to be overcome in becoming a Christian (...)

    The Search for Historical Meaning: Hegel and the Postwar American Right. [REVIEW]Merold Westphal - 1989 - The Owl of Minerva 20 (2):222-223.
    The thesis of this study is that Hegelian historicism plays a foundational role in the thought of several postwar American conservative intellectuals, in particular Will Herberg, Karl Wittfogel, Eric Voegelin, Frank Meyer, and James Burnham. It is a peculiarly anti-Hegelian Hegelianism that Gottfried has in mind. He describes it as “residual,” “unacknowledged,” “subterranean,” and “disguised.” For his heroes hardly ever identify themselves as either Hegelians or historicists. More frequently, their public comments on Hegel are negative. “But the evidence of their (...)

    The Many Faces of Levinas as a Reader of Kierkegaard.Merold Westphal - 2008 - Revista Portuguesa de Filosofia 64 (2/4):1141 - 1162.
    According to the article, the references of Emmanuel Levinas to Kierkegaard are varied. Indeed, there are times in which Levinas seems to misunderstand or completely ignore important writings of the Danish thinker. There are also times in which Levinas understands Kierkegaard well enough to see quite precisely where they disagree. And yet there are also times in which Levinas raises important objections that call for a response from Kierkegaard. Accordingly, the primary goal of this essay is to separate the moments (...)

    A triple sampling of the rich diversity of philosophical reflection on religion and on the relation of philosophy to religion within “continental” traditions. The first part explores three accounts of the relation of phenomenology to religion as presented by Heidegger, Ricoeur, and Marion. The second part explores Heidegger’s critique of metaphysics in its onto-theological constitution with detailed attention to just what he means by this notion and with special reference to the religious and theological motivations one might have for wanting (...)

    Inverted Intentionality: On Being Seen and Being Addressed.Merold Westphal - 2009 - Faith and Philosophy 26 (3):233-252.
    Continental philosophy of religion often takes place within the horizons of phenomenology. A central theme of this tradition is the correlation, in one form or another, of intentional act and intentional object, the “object” as given to or taken by the subject. But in dialectical tension with this theme is the notion of inverted intentionality in which the arrows of meaning bestowing intentionality come toward the self rather than emanating from the self. This theme is developed by Sartre, Levinas, and (...)

    Modernity and its Discontents.James L. Marsh, John D. Caputo & Merold Westphal (eds.) - 1992 - Fordham University Press.
    The introduction by Merold Westphal sets the scene: "Two books, two visions of philosophy, two friends and sometimes colleagues...". Modernity and Its Discontents is a debate between Caputo and Marsh in which each upheld their opposing philosphical positions by critical modernism and post-modernism. The book opens with a critique of each debater of the other's previous work. With its passionate point-counterpoint form, the book recalls the philosphical dialogues of classical times, but the writing style remains lucid and uncluttered. Taking the (...)

    Hegel introduced the Phenomenology of Mind as a work on the problem of knowledge. In the first chapter, entitled “Sense Certainty, or the This and Meaning,” he concluded that knowledge cannot consist of an immediate awareness of particulars ). The tradition discusses sense certainty in terms of this failure of immediate knowledge without, however, specifically addressing the problem of reference. Yet reference is distinct from knowledge in the sense that while there can be no knowledge of objects without reference, there (...)

    As The Owl of Minerva spreads its wings anew, perhaps the time has come to stop talking about the Hegel revival. If we look at what has happened in the twenty-five years since Findlay’s Hegel book appeared, or even in the fifteen years since the Hegel Society of America was founded, it is clear that we are no longer in a “birthtime and a period of transition to a new era” so far as Hegel studies in the English speaking world (...)

    In a recent review of the new German edition of Hegel’s lectures on “Determinate Religion,” Dale Schlitt says that Hegel “gave a surprisingly appreciative reading of the various religions…” If ‘appreciative’ is meant here to signify “affirmative,” it is hard to agree with this claim. Schlitt himself indicates why, when he writes, “Hegel was so appreciative of the various religions that, even with his often negative judgments on them, he consistently presented them as necessary instances without which the consummate, absolute, (...)

But the central theme of Fear and Trembling is faith; so first of all a brief summary of its account of biblical faith is given. Then, in the light of this account of faith, the question of sacrifice is addressed, along with Levinas' (...)
