Styles of Piety: Practicing Philosophy after the Death of God

S. Clark Buckner and Matthew Statler


The last half century has seen both attempts to demythologize the idea of God into purely secular forces and the resurgence of the language of “God” as indispensable to otherwise secular philosophers for describing experience. This book asks whether “piety” might be a sort of irreducible human problematic: functioning both inside and outside religion.

Keywords: demythologize, God, secular forces, resurgence, language of God, secular philosophers, experience, piety, religion
