About-

Even in the twenty-first century, critical and creative engagement with modern and postmodern philosophy is still a rarity in Orthodox circles. This collection of essays makes a contribution to overcoming this deficit. Eight scholars from six different countries, working on the intersection between Orthodox thought and philosophy, present their research in short and accessible essays. The range of topics spans from political philosophy to phenomenology, metaphysics, philosophy of self, logic, ethics, and philosophy of language. This book does not promote one particular approach to the relationship between Orthodox theology and philosophy. Yet all authors demonstrate that Orthodox scholarship is not confined to historical research about the Byzantine era, but that it can contribute to, and enrich, contemporary intellectual debates.

Endorsements & Reviews-

“Can Orthodox Christianity, while understanding itself as the ancient Christianity of the first millennium, robustly engage contemporary philosophy? This collection of articles by some of the finest Orthodox philosophers working today—proceeding from diverse schools of thought and addressing a variety of issues—eloquently demonstrates that this very rootedness in tradition can facilitate a singularly lucid articulation of contemporary Christian philosophy.”

—Bruce V. Foltz, Professor of Philosophy Emeritus, Eckerd College
