  • William James, Radical Empiricism, and the Affective Ground of Religious
           Life

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In the following article, I aim to discuss three separate linkages in William James’s overall philosophy of religion. James’s philosophy of religion is based thoroughly on his radical empiricism, and this is the uniting thread often missed in contemporary scholarship. Radical empiricism makes it possible to link 1) his criticism of both representational metaphysics and theology and that philosophy through James must take to heart the lack of access both representative metaphysics and theology conventionally claimed, and 2) the affective ground on which both philosophy and religion have operated for James, especially in his “Will to Believe” argument, and 3) how understanding the affective ground informs a ...

  • The Mind of Charles Hartshorne: A Critical Examination by Donald Wayne
           Viney and George W. Shields (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Over the past decade process philosophy has undergone a significant renaissance most notably due to the towering presence of the thought of Alfred North Whitehead in that tradition. Charles Hartshorne by manner of contrast has not had such a towering presence. Part of the reason this is the case is due to a paucity of introductory literature on the thought of Charles Hartshorne—literature that might contribute to a “starter kit” so to speak in mastering Hartshorne’s massive oeuvre. The Mind of Charles Hartshorne: A Critical Examination by Donald Wayne Viney and George W. Shields, both former students of Hartshorne and experts in process philosophy themselves, have authored a welcome contribution to an introductory ... Read More

  • Religion within the Limits of History Alone: Pragmatic Historicism and the
           Future of Theology by Demian Wheeler (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The history of Christian theology since the Enlightenment has been a series of unsuccessful attempts to evade a stark dilemma: either fundamentalism or atheism. Contemporary liberal theologians have argued that this dilemma is entirely too stark, too eliminative of the creative possibilities of revisionism. Liberal theology has wanted to revise and reinterpret Christian faith in conformity with history, reason, a scientific worldview, and a sophisticated grasp of the significance of symbol, analogy, and metaphor in the lives of religious practitioners. Eliminating both supernaturalism and anthropomorphism, liberal theology would make Christianity more intellectually tenable, rescuing it from the literalist hands ... Read More

  • Editor’s Note

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: For Paul Tillich, sin is separation. For Simone Weil, every separation is a link. For Michael Raposa, the paradigm of relation is love. Are love and sin thus somehow the same' Of course not, at least not necessarily. But sophistry such as this only underscores the difficulty of asserting the boundaries at which something ends, and another thing begins (not to mention love and sin!). Consider the coronavirus, for instance. The virus is connected biologically to billions of humans, and we are connected through it to each other and to other species. And yet connectivity is hardly what comes to mind when considering the cultural and political response to the virus, neither when cross-border regulations are considered ... Read More

  • A Pantheology of Pandemic: Sex, Race, Nature, and The Virus

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The explanations started pouring in even before the virus attained “pandemic” status in March of 2020: we were being punished. According to a vocal subset of Evangelical pastors and ultra-Orthodox rabbis, the death-dealing virus was divine retribution for the sins of (who else') LGBT-identified people and their allies, who aggressively violated what the pastors and rabbis called “the order of nature.”1 Meanwhile, their left-leaning counterparts argued that the sin in question wasn’t so much sexual as ecological: in the words of one Roman Catholic commentator, the coronavirus was God’s punishment for “our unfettered domination attitude toward nature.”2At the same time, an equally vocal throng of secular ...

  • The Sacredness of Nature: Response to Six Objections to Religious
           Naturalism

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The poet Mary Oliver speaks as a kind of religious naturalist when she writes in her book of prose and poetry Winter Hours, “I would not be a poet without the natural world. Someone else could. But not me. For me, the door to the woods is the door to the temple. Under the trees, along the pale slopes of sand, I walk in an ascendent relationship to rapture, and with words, I celebrate the rapture. I see, and dote upon, the manifest.”1 She speaks as a poet and not as a philosopher or religious scholar, but she does so as one who is ardently in touch with the sacredness of nature. Her vocation as a poet is testimony to this constant attunement. Her daily walks in the woods and by the sea are her portals of access to ... Read More

  • Modern Socratic Dialogue and Resilient Democracy: Creating the Clearing
           for an American Bildung

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Michael Hogue’s American Immanence draws from some of the fundamental features of American philosophy: philosophy is not alienated from life, but rather, part and parcel of the structure of our experiences, a way of living. His notion of “resilient democracy” is particularly representative of this tradition of thought. Resilient democracy is, first of all, an ethos, grounded in “the collective experience of uncertainty and animated by the living desire to bring about a more beautiful world.”2 This ethos is an associational, relational one, and it is democratic because, for Hogue, it must be “empathetic, emancipatory, and equitable,” assuming that each member of the association can be enriched by other members” (AI ...
