Overview

"Charles Taliaferro has written a narrative history of philosophical reflection on religion from the seventeenth century to the present, with an emphasis on shifting views of faith and the nature of evidence. The book begins with the movement called Cambridge Platonism, which formed a bridge between the ancient and medieval worlds and early modern philosophy. While the book provides a general overview of different movements in philosophy, it also offers a detailed exposition and reflection on key arguments, and the scope is broad, from Descartes to contemporary feminist philosophy of religion." Written with clarity and verve, this book will appeal to professionals and students in the philosophy of religion, religious studies, and the history of ideas, as well as informed lay readers.
