Transcendence and Beyond by John D. Caputo

Book Description

Transcendence and Beyond poses the classical questions of transcendence in a postmodern setting. Do we need a transcendence that is ever more beyond or should we put transcendence behind us altogether? Is it the case that, when seen in a postmodern light, transcendence must be itself transcended? In this thought-provoking volume, Jean-Luc Marion, Gianni Vattimo, and a distinguished group of international philosophers and theologians interrogate transcendence for today's philosophy of religion. The essays gathered here examine notions of transcendence to assess its relevance and meaning in a postmodern context as well as to determine how it might be usefully refitted. Various subthemes, such as creation, love, religious language, the question of the impossible and that of becoming, emerge with a new definition of transcendence. Poised at the intersection of philosophy and religion, these reflections provide a benchmark for renewed consideration of this classic philosophical and religious theme.

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
