Merold Westphal Overcoming Onto-Theology: Toward A Postmodern Christian Faith. Perspectives In Continental Philosophy, Todd Gooch Dec 2001

Merold Westphal Overcoming Onto-Theology: Toward A Postmodern Christian Faith. Perspectives In Continental Philosophy, Todd Gooch

Todd Gooch

This volume is a collection of fourteen essays, all but one of which were published separately between 1993 and 2000. Although the volume does not present a singe, sustained critique of onto-theology, or a systematic defense of the postmodern Christian faith alluded to in the title, each of the articles does contribute to Westphals' over-arching aim, which is to appropriate certain central themes of postmodern philosophy for the task of Christian thinking.
