It has long been assumed that the more modern we become, the
less religious we will be. Yet a recent resurrection in faith has
challenged the certainty of this belief. In these original essays
and interviews, leading hermeneutical philosophers and postmodern
theorists John D. Caputo and Gianni Vattimo engage with each
other's past and present work on the subject and reflect on our
transition from secularism to postsecularism.
As two of the figures who have contributed the most to the
theoretical reflections on the contemporary philosophical turn to
religion, Caputo and Vattimo explore the changes, distortions, and
reforms that are a part of our postmodern faith and the forces
shaping the religious imagination today. Incisively and
imaginatively connecting their argument to issues ranging from
terrorism to fanaticism and from politics to media and culture,
these thinkers continue to reinvent the field of hermeneutic
philosophy with wit, grace, and passion.
