Edited by Sarah Coakley

Faith, Rationality and the Passions presents a fresh and original examination of the relation of religious faith, philosophical rationality and the passions.

Contributions see leading scholars refute the widely-held belief that religious Enlightenment forced passion and reason apart. * Leading Philosophical experts offer new research on the relation of faith, reason and the passions in classic and Enlightenment figures * Overturns the widely-held presumption that the Enlightenment was responsible for creating a gulf between reason and passion * Presents original and innovative research on the importance of the late-19th century creation of the category of emotion , and its striking difference from classic ideas of passion * Brings together secular science and philosophy of emotion with philosophical theology to seek a new integration of belief, emotion and reason
