  • The Vulnerability of Integrity in Early Confucian Thoughtby Michael Ing

    Oxford University Press 2017; US$ 97.99

    This book is about the necessity, and even value, of vulnerability in human experience. In it, Michael Ing brings early Chinese texts into dialogue with questions about the ways in which meaningful things are vulnerable to powers beyond our control; and more specifically, how relationships with meaningful others might compel tragic actions. more...

  • Religion from Tolstoy to Camusby Walter Kaufmann

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 44.95

    Walter Kaufmann devoted his life to exploring the religious implications of literary and philosophical texts. Deeply skeptical about the human and moral benets of modern secularism, he also criticized the quest for certainty pursued through dogma. Kaufmann saw a risk of loss of authenticity in what he described as unjustied retreats into the past.... more...

  • Assertive Religionby Emanuel de Kadt

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 57.95

    Questions about religions and religious institutions have changed dramatically since they first arose many years ago. In the beginning of the twenty-first century, the link of religion with extreme ideologies captures our attention. Such questions have been the focus of a steadily growing number of books. What does Assertive Religion add to the... more...

  • Rogue Clericsby Anson Shupe

    Taylor and Francis 2017; US$ 57.95

    During the past several years the mass media in the United States has been awash with reports of priestly pedophilia, ecclesiastical cover-up, and clerical intimidation or financial settlements intended to silence victims. Based on journalistic accounts, or scholarly research, it might be assumed that this is a recent phenomenon. Journalist reports... more...

  • Paths to Godby Ram Dass

    Potter/TenSpeed/Harmony 2007; US$ 12.12

    For centuries, readers have turned to the Bhagavad Gita for inspiration and guidance as they chart their own spiritual paths. As profound and powerful as this classic text has been for generations of seekers, integrating its lessons into the ordinary patterns of our lives can ultimately seem beyond our reach. Now, in a fascinating series of reflections,... more...

  • Levinas and Kierkegaard in Dialogueby Merold Westphal

    Indiana University Press 2008; US$ 19.50

    Few philosophers have devoted more than passing attention to similarities between the thought of Søren Kierkegaard, a Danish Christian, and Emmanuel Levinas, a French Jew. Here, one of philosophy of religion's most distinctive voices offers a sustained comparison. Focusing on questions surrounding otherness,... more...

  • New Light on Manichaeismby Jason BeDuhn

    BRILL 2009; US$ 151.00

    Offers the latest discoveries and insights into the Manichaean religion from leading scholars in the field, including new reconstructions of literary and artistic sources and analyses of the religion's origins and development across North Africa and West, Central, and East Asia. more...

  • Pentadic Redaction in the Manichaean Kephalaiaby Timothy Pettipiece

    BRILL 2009; US$ 144.00

    This study identifies a significant redactional tendency whereby the compilers of the "Kephalaia" sought to clarify ambiguities in a oecanonicala Manichaean tradition by means of five-part numerical series, thereby challenging the conventional wisdom of Manichaean scholarship about the consistency of Manichaean doctrine. more...

  • St. Paul among the Philosophersby John D. Caputo; Linda Martín Alcoff

    Indiana University Press 2009; US$ 19.50

    In his epistles, St. Paul sounded a universalism that has recently been taken up by secular philosophers who do not share his belief in Christ, but who regard his project as centrally important for contemporary political life. The Pauline project -- as they see it -- is the universality of truth, the... more...

  • Kierkegaard and Levinasby J. Aaron Simmons; David Wood

    Indiana University Press 2008; US$ 21.20

    Recent discussions in the philosophy of religion, ethics, and personal political philosophy have been deeply marked by the influence of two philosophers who are often thought to be in opposition to each other, Søren Kierkegaard and Emmanuel Levinas. Devoted expressly to the relationship between Levinas... more...
