Mystical Theology and Continental Philosophy : Interchange in the Wake of God Hardback
Edited by David Lewin, Simon D. Podmore, Duane Williams
Part of the Contemporary Theological Explorations in Mysticism series
Exploration of the interface between mystical theology and continental philosophy is a defining feature of the current intellectual and even devotional climate.
But to what extent and in what depth are these disciplines actually speaking to one another; or even speaking about the same phenomena?
This book draws together original contributions by leading and emerging international scholars, delineating emerging debates in this growing and dynamic field of research, and spanning mystical and philosophical traditions from the ancient, to the medieval, modern, and contemporary.
At the heart of which lies Meister Eckhart, perhaps the single most influential Christian mystic for modern times.
The book is organised around significant historical and contemporary figures who speak across the intersections of philosophy and theology, offering new insights into key interlocutors such as Pseudo-Dionysius, Augustine, Isaac Luria, Eckhart, Hegel, Heidegger, Marion, Kierkegaard, Deleuze, Laruelle, and Zizek.
Designed both to contribute to current trends in mystical theology and philosophy, and elicit dialogue and debate from further afield, this book speaks within an emerging space exploring the retrieval of the mystical within a post-secular context.
