Overview

It has long been assumed that the more modern we become, the less religious we will be. Yet a recent resurrection in faith has challenged the certainty of this belief. In these original essays and interviews, leading hermeneutical philosophers and postmodern theorists John D. Caputo and Gianni Vattimo engage with each other's past and present work on the subject and reflect on our transition from secularism to postsecularism.

As two of the figures who have contributed the most to the theoretical reflections on the contemporary philosophical turn to religion, Caputo and Vattimo explore the changes, distortions, and reforms that are a part of our postmodern faith and the forces shaping the religious imagination today. Incisively and imaginatively connecting their argument to issues ranging from terrorism to fanaticism and from politics to media and culture, these thinkers continue to reinvent the field of hermeneutic philosophy with wit, grace, and passion.

What People Are Saying

B. Keith Putt

What comes After the Death of God? Jeffrey W. Robbins responds in good Kierkegaardian and Bonhoefferian fashion that it is something of a radical postsecular 'resurrection,' one that does not revivify traditional triumphalist ontotheology but breathes life anew into a more 'biblical' and kenotic theology of weakness. He presents an important précis of the post-secular rebirth of religion without religion, of the Kingdom of God as a kingdom of liberation, and of God as an event of incarnational love.

B. Keith Putt, Samford University

Santiago Zabala

Gianni Vattimo, John D. Caputo, Gabriel Vahanian, and Jeffrey W. Robbins are assuring us in this new book that Nietzsche was right at least about two things: the "death of God" and that 'there are no facts, but only interpretations.' Nietzsche's announcement of the 'death of God' is not only valid and alive today, but will also continue to be so in the future. This book assures us that hermeneutical philosophy has taken over the world and that we are living in the 'age of interpretation.'

Santiago Zabala, editor of Weakening Philosophy

Catherine Keller

In fidelity to the prophetic annunciation of the 'death of God,' these dialogues take one to a second death, the death of that very death, where the questions of theology-or something very like it-can breathe again. Jeffrey W. Robbins has lured John D. Caputo and Gianni Vattimo into an irresistible conversation, all the more remarkable for its lucidity and frankness. This good-humored volume serves either to introduce the religious turn in philosophy or to twist it toward a festive maturity.

Catherine Keller, professor of constructive theology and author of Face of the Deep: a Theology of Becoming

Carl Raschke

After the Death of God is an incredibly valuable, nuanced, and trend-setting dialogue between two of our most prominent postmodern thinkers. Readers will be delighted with both the richness and surprising turns taken in this unique conversation and will come away with a much better understanding about where postmodernism is now heading.
