In an effort to renew the relationship between philosophy and theology, John Caputo traces the relationship between these rivals back to the source of the conflict between them. In the present day, philosophy and theology are commonly understood as different perspectives on the same set of questions. Philosophy is understood as driven exclusively by reason from its principles to conclusions, without reference to any external authority and universally accessible (at least in principle). Theology, [...]

Caputo succeeds in divulging (rather quickly) the troubled history of philosophy and theology. While he succeeds in untangling ambiguous strings that both philosophy and theology both find themselves into, I would also have preferred a more systematic treatment of the relationship. I acknowledge that the content was an effect of the kind of readership the editors (and probably Caputo) had in mind; perhaps it was just too short an analysis for me. But through and through, a wonderful introductory [...]

Caputo sets down 4 thesis in this book about wrestling with the two disciplines of theology and philosophy. These no named chapters examine these disciplines from various points of history, theologians, philosophers, and scientists. It is from this that Caputo sees the best working relationship of these two disciplines first starting in the pre-modern era and then now in the post-modern era. The former allowed some flexibility between them and the latter more flexibility. It was in the modernity [...]

The book is about how philosophy and theology intersect and the completer nature of each towards the other. Caputo gives a working definition of theology: “the place where the community of faith does its thinking, examining, clarifying, conceptualizing, and updating the common faith over the course of history” (4). Philosophers tend to think of themselves more as freelancers. Each, however, claim the same turf: ultimate questions, the good life, what being human means, and God’s relation t [...]

### Middle-Point Thoughts ###I had expected to find this exceedingly boring. I am now pleasantly surprised. It won't pull you out of your seat -- but in few pages it does a commendable job of summarizing the history of the relationship between philosophy, theology, and science in the West, expressed in Pre-Modernism, Modernism, and Post-Modernism from the Classical Era through the Enlightenment, Romanticism, Post-Kantian Scientism, etc. With only one or two minor quibbles, I can recommend this b [...]

Excellent read and valuable resource for the theologian and philosopher alike. The superficial dimensions of postmodernity are largely overlooked or shunned by a majority of theologians, yet they are at the same time utilizing the tools of postmodernity; philosophers, in some respects, embrace postmodernity and yet still cling to the skepticism underneath modernity's lurch from the religious. I know these are "blanket" statements, but reading Caputo draws this out elegantly. Both groups are over [...]

A good introductory essay to Caputo's thinking and provocative read for pastors and philosophers alike. The penultimate chapter in which Caputo lays out his readings of Derrida and Augustine could have been slightly clearer (in fact, I've heard him deliver this material more clearly in lectures), but on the whole, a decent essay.

I really enjoyed Caputo's thoughts on how philosophy and theology tie together yet can be at odds at the same time. It certainly makes me want to read more by him!

Quick read but great thoughts. Solid meat but not too heavy to process.

Good discussion on the relation of philosophy and theology in the pre-modern, modern, and post-modern era. I appreciated the bios of key people at the end of the book.

An amazing book. One that should be re-read every year.

A must read for anyone wishing to understand philosophy and theology in a specifically postmodern context. I simply couldn't put the book down. Caputo is superb.

Excellent introduction to the relationship between these disciplines/ ways of life. Especially interesting is the comparison between Augustine and Derrida.

Couldn't put it down.
