Schleiermacher’s Influences on American Thought and Religious Life, 1835-1920
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"Schleiermacher's thought and influence are both too sprawling, rich, and complex to permit capsule assessments, yet summarize we must, while taking select plunges into detail. Here it is done by Jeffrey Wilcox, Terrence Tice, and Catherine Kelsey with deep understanding and discernment, with the scholar's love of a profound subject constantly showing through."
--Gary Dorrien, Author, Kantian Reason and Hegelian Spirit
"Here Catherine Kelsey and Jeffrey Wilcox collaborate with Terrence Tice, 'dean' of Schleiermacher translators and interpreters, in providing a vast, first-of-its kind orientation to Schleiermacher's manifold bequests to American religious thought, theological studies, and scholarship beyond. An exceptional contribution to Schleiermacher study itself, this reception history telling is also instructive for anyone, friend or foe, of American Christianity's ongoing liberal/progressive intellectual heritage."
--James O. Duke, The I. Wylie and Elizabeth M. Briscoe Professor of History of Christianity and History of Christian Thought, Brite Divinity School, Texas Christian University
"This is a timely and important work. There is renewed interest in Friedrich Schleiermacher's thought among scholars of religion as well as among theologians today, and Tice and Wilcox make a major contribution to this Schleiermacher revival by offering a sophisticated exploration of the twin foundational pillars of his thought, his Dialektik and his Psychologie. Tice and Wilcox are among the most prominent contemporary interpreters of Schleiermacher today. Even more, they embody his spirit in their careful historical research, their sympathies with Schleiermacher's view of knowledge as being both critical and open-ended, and their deep understanding of Schleiermacher's liberal vision for church and society."
--Christine Helmer, Professor of Religious Studies, Northwestern University
