Religion after Metaphysics

Synopsis

Contributions by leading philosophers in the United States and Europe address the decline of metaphysics and the gap that has developed for the non-theological analysis of religion. What role should religion play in society at a time when metaphysics has come into disrepute? The metaphysical assumptions behind traditional theologies are no longer widely accepted, but it is unclear as to how this "end of metaphysics" should be interpreted, or what implications it has for our comprehension of religion.

Excerpt

I would like to thank Julie Lund, Andy West, Katie Treharne, James Olsen, and James Faulconer for their invaluable help in the preparation of the typescript of this book. Many people and entities at Brigham Young University contributed time and resources in support of the conference out of which this volume has grown. I am indebted in particular to Alan Wilkins, Van Gessel, Ron Woods, Dennis Rasmussen, Andrew Skinner, and Katie Treharne for their contributions to the conference. It was Bert Dreyfus who provided the inspiration for this project, and I am grateful to him for the many conversations and correspondences we have had on the subject.
