An original work which rethinks the question of God in a constructive spirit, drawing its conclusions by considering ideas received from both philosophy and religion.

  • Makes an important new contribution to the ongoing scholarly debates surrounding the intersection of philosophy and religion
  • Suggests that this junction is not just dictated by religion having to prove its credentials to rational philosophy, but that it is also a matter of philosophy wondering if religion is the ultimate partner in dialogue
  • Includes discussion of a wide range of significant thinkers, both traditional and contemporary, such as Plotinus, Spinoza, Kant, Hegel, and Nietzsche and his successors
  • Completes a trilogy of works by William Desmond, complementing its companion volumes, Being and the Between and Ethics and the Between.
