God, the Gift, and Postmodernism Paperback / softback
Edited by John D. Caputo, Michael J. Scanlon
Part of the Philosophy of Religion series
Paperback / softback
Pushing past the constraints of postmodernism which cast "reason" and"religion" in opposition, God, the Gift, and Postmodernism, seizes the opportunity to question the authority of "the modern" and open the limits of possible experience, including the call to religious experience, as a new millennium approaches.
Jacques Derrida, the father of deconstruction, engages with Jean-Luc Marion and other religious philosophers to entertainquestions about intention, givenness, and possibility which reveal the extent to which deconstruction is structured like religion. New interpretations of Kant, Heidegger, Husserl, and Derrida emerge from essays and discussions with distinguished philosophers and theologians from the United States and Europe. The result is that God, the Gift, and Postmodernism elaborates a radical phenomenology that stretches the limits of its possibility and explores areas where philosophy and religion have become increasingly and surprisingly convergent. Contributors include: John D. Caputo, John Dominic Crossan, Jacques Derrida, Robert Dodaro, Richard Kearney, Jean-Luc Marion, Frangoise Meltzer, Michael J.
Scanlon, Mark C. Taylor, David Tracy, Merold Westphaland Edith Wyschogrod.
