The Religious

This impressive collection takes its lead from the question - 'Who comes after the subject?' - posed by Jean-Luc Nancy some years ago and responds to similar questions of 'Who comes after the God of metaphysics?' and 'What becomes of God and of religious faith after the 'first cause' has been shown the door?' To answer these questions, The Religious offers landmark texts from Kierkegaard, Heidegger, Levinas, Derrida, and Irigaray, excerpts from the famous debate between Jean-Luc Marion and Dominique Janicaud, and ten original selections, some of which include coverage of feminist theology. This volume is an ideal text for advanced undergraduates and graduate students in the philosophy of religion.
