The “Prolegomena” sets out the fundamental perception of the history of being now operative in consciousness. The center of the book is comprised of a two-part “Reflection on the History of Being”: Part I is an examination of the impact made on the shape of scientific philosophy by the fact of Christian faith. Aristotle, the sacra doctrina of Thomas Aquinas, and their relationship with the modern thinkers, Descartes, Kant, Hegel, and Kierkegaard are examined in this section. In Part II the history of the conception of time becomes the measure of a prospective analysis of the limits essential to the modern enterprise. Augustine, Leibniz, Husserl, and Heidegger become the major figures here, and there is a specific delineation of the relationship of the phenomenologists to Kierkegaard and Hegel.

Review:

“This is a most remarkable undertaking, that, while immensely erudite, transcends its own scholarship to convey the sense of a world of thought to come. I have been particularly impressed by the success with which this book takes fully into account Heidegger’s notion of the history of Being―surely one of the most provocative contentions of twentieth-century philosophy―and yet in the end provides an alternative reading of this history, one that is in certain ways more convincing and nuanced than Heidegger’s own version. This is an accomplishment of the highest level.” ― Edward S. Casey

“In my judgment, Novitas Mundi is quite simply the most important work of philosophical theology published in our century.” ― Thomas J. J. Altizer
