    Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht 2010; US$ 35.08

    Eine herausragende Entwicklung im Dialog zwischen Biologie und Theologie besteht in der Erforschung der kognitiven und evolutionären Grundlagen der Religion.

  • Vigilant Faithby Daniel Boscaljon

    University of Virginia Press 2013; US$ 22.50

    In Vigilant Faith: Passionate Agnosticism in a Secular World, Daniel Boscaljon takes up the contemporary challenges to faith by skepticism and secularism. He proposes a model of faith for believers and unbelievers alike?a passionate agnosticism?that is rooted in a skeptical consciousness. Skepticism and faith are structurally similar, he writes,... more...

  • Encountering the Secularby J. Heath Atchley

    University of Virginia Press 2009; US$ 19.50

    In Encountering the Secular, J. Heath Atchley proposes an alternative to the understanding of the secular as that which opposes the religious, and he turns to American and Continental philosophy to support his critique. Drawing from thinkers as disparate as Ralph Waldo Emerson and Gilles Deleuze, and engaging with contemporary literature and film,... more...

  • The Reason of the Giftby Jean-Luc Marion; Stephen E. Lewis

    University of Virginia Press 2011; US$ 29.50

    This book represents a continuation of Jean-Luc Marion?s work on givenness as a foundational concept. A former student of Jacques Derrida, Marion is known for his work in seventeenth-century French philosophy, for his theory of "God without being," and for his reformulation of phenomenology. Marion?s groundbreaking work on givenness is articulated through... more...

  • Fatalism in American Film Noirby Robert B. Pippin

    University of Virginia Press 2012; US$ 16.50

    The crime melodramas of the 1940s known now as film noir shared many formal and thematic elements, from unusual camera angles and lighting to moral ambiguity and femmes fatales. In this book Robert Pippin argues that many of these films also raise distinctly philosophical questions. Where most Hollywood films of that era featured reflective individuals living... more...

  • Bewildered Travelby Frederick J. Ruf

    University of Virginia Press 2012; US$ 16.50

    Why do we travel? Ostensibly an act of leisure, travel finds us thrusting ourselves into jets flying miles above the earth, only to endure dislocations of time and space, foods and languages foreign to our body and mind, and encounters with strangers on whom we must suddenly depend. Travel is not merely a break from routine; it is its antithesis,... more...

  • When the Sun Dancedby Jeffrey S. Bennett

    University of Virginia Press 2012; US$ 24.50

    Between May and October of 1917, three young shepherds were reportedly visited six times by an apparition of the Virgin Mary near the town of Fátima in Portugal. At the final apparition event, approximately 70,000 visitors gathered to witness a prophesied miracle intended to convince the public that the children?s visions were of divine origin. The... more...

  • Word, Like Fireby Valerie C. Cooper

    University of Virginia Press 2012; US$ 39.50

    Maria Stewart is believed by many to have been the first American woman of any race to give public political speeches. In Word, Like Fire, Valerie C. Cooper argues that the religious, political, and social threads of Maria Stewart's thought are tightly interwoven, such that focusing narrowly on any one aspect would be to misunderstand her rhetoric.... more...

  • Doing Justice to Mercyby Jonathan Rothchild; Matthew Myer Boulton; Kevin Jung

    University of Virginia Press 2012; US$ 19.50

    It is often assumed that the law and religion address different spheres of human life. Religion and ethics articulate complex systems of moral reasoning that concern norms, deliberation of ends, cultivation of disposition, and transformation of moral agency. Law, in contrast, seeks to govern human conduct through procedural justice, rights, and public... more...

  • From Theology to Theological Thinkingby Jean-Yves Lacoste; Jeffrey Bloechl; W. Chris Hackett

    University of Virginia Press 2014; US$ 29.50

    "Christian philosophy" is commonly regarded as an oxymoron, philosophy being thought incompatible with the assumptions and conclusions required by religious faith. According to this way of thinking, philosophy and theology must forever remain distinct. In From Theology to Theological Thinking, Jean-Yves Lacoste takes a different approach. Stepping... more...
