Prayers and Tears of Jacques Derrida by John D. Caputo

Book Description

"Caputo's book is riveting...A singular achievement of stylistic brio and impeccable scholarship, it breaks new ground in making a powerful case for treating Derrida as homo religiosis...There can be no mistaking the importance of Caputo's work." -Edith Wyschogrod "No one interested in Derrida, in Caputo, or in the larger question of postmodernism and religion can afford to ignore this pathbreaking study. Taking full advantage of the most recent and least discussed writings of Derrida, it offers a careful and comprehensive account of the religious dimension of Derrida's thought." -Merold Westphal

Books By Author John D. Caputo

Folly of God by John D. Caputo Folly of God, Paperback (November 2015)

Inspired by Paul Tillich's suggestion that atheism is not the end of theology but is instead the beginning, and working this together with Derrida's idea of the undeconstructible, Caputo explores the idea that the real interest of theology is not God, especially not God as supreme being, but the unconditional.

Truth by John D. Caputo Truth, Paperback (September 2013)

Explores the many notions of 'truth', and what it really means Riding to work in the morning has become commonplace. The author argues that our transportation technologies are not merely transient phenomena but the vehicle for an important metaphor about post modernism, or even constitutive of post modernism.

Insistence of God by John D. Caputo Insistence of God, Paperback (September 2013)

Presents the provocative idea that God does not exist, God insists, while God's existence is a human responsibility, which may or may not happen
