Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0334041376, Paperback)

The Veritas Series from SCM Press and the Centre for Theology and Philosophy at Nottingham University brings to market original volumes all engaging in critical questions of pressing concern to both philosophers, theologians, biologists, economists and more. Each book in this new series displays a rigorous theological critique of categories of study not often thought to be theological in character. The series aims to illustrate that without theology, something essential is lost in our account of such categories, not only in an abstract way but in the way in which we inhabit the world. The Veritas Series refuses to accept disciplinary isolation: both for theology and for other disciplines. 'This is an exciting, distinguished and indeed brave volume of the relation between belief and metaphysics. The volume of twenty essays is exciting in that the points of entry to the question of relation and styles of discourse are so varied, while less established; it is distinguished not simply because of it's many famous names, but because it unites in one volume analytical and continental philosophical approaches to the issue to the common purpose of retrieving yet also reconceiving metaphysics and the necessity for belief to forgo the comfort of relation, but brings to the surface postmodernity's own penchant for axiomatics and its containment of the religious uncoupling it from metaphysical commitments.'

Cyril O'Regan, Catherine F. Husking Professor of Theology, Department of Theology, Notre Dame
