Coleridge, Philosophy and Religion by Douglas Hedley

Book Description

Coleridge's relation to his German contemporaries constitutes the toughest problem in assessing his standing as a thinker. For the last half-century this relationship has been described, ultimately, as parasitic. As a result, Coleridge's contribution to religious thought has been seen primarily in terms of his poetic genius. This book revives and deepens the evaluation of Coleridge as a philosophical theologian in his own right. Coleridge had a critical and creative relation to, and kinship with, German Idealism. Moreover, the principal impulse behind his engagement with that philosophy is traced to the more immediate context of English Unitarian-Trinitarian controversy of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. The book re-establishes Coleridge as a philosopher of religion and as a vital source for contemporary theological reflection.

Sacrifice Imagined by Douglas Hedley Sacrifice Imagined, Hardback (October 2011)

Despisers of religion have poured scorn upon the idea of sacrifice as an index of the irrational and wicked in religious practice. One need only think of the appalling cult of sacrifice in numerous totalitarian regimes of the twentieth century. Yet sacrifice remains a part of our cultural 'imaginary'. This book explores the idea of sacrifice.

Living Forms of the Imagination by Douglas Hedley Living Forms of the Imagination, Hardback (February 2008)

Religious belief requires imaginative engagement. If this is not to be confused with fantasy or wish fulfilment, we need some account of how the imagination can be used through images of salvation: symbols and sacred narratives. This book argues that the concept of imagination must play a core role in any successful anti-reductionist account.
