Redemption in Poetry and Philosophy : Wordsworth, Kant, and the Making of the Post-Christian Imagination, Hardback Book

Redemption in Poetry and Philosophy : Wordsworth, Kant, and the Making of the Post-Christian Imagination Hardback

Description

A biblical understanding of redemption requires the sacrificial death of Jesus.

In the post-Christian world envisioned by Jean-Jacques Rousseau and his Enlightenment contemporaries, the Christ-centric source of redemption disappears, though the human need for salvation remains. Redemption in Poetry and Philosophy explores how this need for redemption is realized in the post-Christian poetics of William Wordsworth and philosophical imagination of Immanuel Kant.

Simon Haines critiques the secular modes of salvation articulated by each figure to illustrate the shortcomings of modern, post-Christian imagination. Redemption in Poetry and Philosophy highlights the ways in which prose allegedly serves as a redemptive agent for nonbelievers in the modern age, but also engenders dangerous notions of self-redemption in contemporary Christians.
