Overview

Contributions by leading philosophers in the United States and Europe address the decline of metaphysics and the gap that has developed for the non-theological analysis of religion. What role should religion play in society at a time when metaphysics has come into disrepute? The metaphysical assumptions behind traditional theologies are no longer widely accepted, but it is unclear as to how this "end of metaphysics" should be interpreted, or what implications it has for our comprehension of religion.
