Overview

Interpreting the Present: Six Philosophical Essays by Gerald J. Galgan

Gerald J. Galgan's collection of essays speaks in several philosophical voices. He explores the relationship between a metaphysical and epistemological language and follows the transition from the medieval Christian Book of Nature to the modern conception of subjectivity. Galgan constructs a philosophical past through which we can interpret the present pluralism of ideas and sort out meanings in a modern world of 'Gods without Gods. ' Useful text for students of Philosophy and Religion. Contents: Between God and Nothingness: Reflections on the Twentieth Century; Clarifying the Present: An Essay in Historical Interpretation; The Changing of the Gods; An Essay on the Language of Contemporaneity; Pragmatism: The Epistemology of Technology; Technology as Text.
