From the Back Cover:

Carol Wayne White introduces readers to the religious naturalism of the seventeenth-century English philosopher Anne Conway, whose work offers an analysis of the mechanical conception of nature. White shows how Conway's mystical cosmology provides an alternative to the dominant mechanistic models advanced by her leading male contemporaries, especially Descartes. She connects these philosophic impulses to Conway's late religious conversion to Quakerism, arguing that Quaker practical mysticism and its emphasis on equality within the natural order resonate with Conway's philosophic naturalism. White also explores Conway's continuity with and departure from current veins of religious naturalism, which entail an aesthetic ethical mandate seeking the increase of goodness in the world.

"Recovering Conway's critique of the philosophy of her day is important, as is revealing Conway's role in the history of Quakerism. The author pulls these elements together nicely in an admirably readable text. She also does a fine job of showing how significant the physical world was in the religious life of Anne Conway, and this is especially relevant for contemporary religious thinkers because religious naturalism is clearly on the ascent among contemporary intellectuals." -- Loyal Rue, author of Everybody's Story: Wising Up to the Epic of Evolution

"Conway studies are burgeoning, and this book will be useful for undergraduate teaching." -- Jane Duran, author of Eight Women Philosophers: Theory, Politics, and Feminism

About the Author:

Carol Wayne White is Associate Professor of Religion at Bucknell University and author of Poststructuralism, Feminism, and Religion: Triangulating Positions.
