If the philosophers of the Enlightenment had hoped to establish, once and for all, that reason is the primary source of human orientation, twentieth century philosophy has demonstrated all too clearly that reason is far from having clear boundaries. In this respect, Immanuel Kant’s contemporaries and critics, Johann Georg Hamann and Friedrich Heinrich Jacobi, look surprisingly modern. Faith is now increasingly recognized as intrinsic to social identity and thus no more capable of taking a permanently subordinate role to reason—whatever that may be—than reason is capable of an existence free from social embodiment. This collection of thirteen essays focuses upon major philosophical and theological debates from the past three hundred years. Written by leading international scholars, this remarkable text takes the reader through major transitions in the modern understanding of faith and reason. It thus provides an invaluable guide to the history of modern philosophical theology whilst informing readers why the relationship between faith and reason remains an issue of major social and philosophical importance.

About the Author:

Wayne Cristaudo is the director of European studies at the University of Hong Kong. He has written and edited a dozen books, including Great Ideas in the Western Literary Canon (with Peter Poiana) and Power, Love and Evil: Contribution to a Philosophy of the Damaged. He is also the author of two forthcoming books: Religion, Redemption, and Revolution and A Philosophical History of Love.

Heung-wah Wong, Ph.D., is a cultural anthropologist and associate professor of Japanese studies at the University of Hong Kong. He has written numerous articles in leading scholarly journals and is the author and editor of a number of books, including the highly acclaimed Japanese Bosses, Chinese Workers.

His focuses lie in business, the pornographic culture in Asia, and creative industries in Asia.

Review:

A highly accessible and illuminating collection. . . . A book for everyone with an interest in modern religious belief confronting the challenges (and occasional pretensions) of reason.
—Paul Crittenden, Ph.D., emeritus professor, School of Philosophical and Historical Inquiry, The University of Sydney

This is a wonderful collection orientated on what is, or ought to be, a key issue for any philosophical mind with an interest in issues of faith, religion and rationality.
—Philip Quadrio, Ph.D., School of History and Philosophy, University of New South Wales
