Overcoming Onto-Theology: Toward a Postmodern Christian Faith

Merold Westphal


This book explores the nature and the structure of a postmodern Christian philosophy. It offers studies of Heidegger's early lectures on Paul and Augustine, the idea of hermeneutics, Schleiermacher, Hegel, Derrida, and Nietzsche, all in the service of building his argument that postmodern thinking offers an indispensable tool for rethinking Christian faith. This is a collection that brings together in one place fourteen chapters by one of the most important thinkers working in American philosophy today.

Keywords: Christian philosophy, Heidegger, hermeneutics, Schleiermacher, Hegel, Derrida, Nietzsche
