In "Transcendence," thinkers from John Milbank, Graham Ward, and Kevin Hart, to Thomas Carlson, Slavoj Zizek, and Jean-Luc Marion have come together to create the definitive analysis of this key concept in modern theological and philosophical thought.

Industry Reviews

"A fine collection of protests against reductive versions of modernity and complacent versions of post-modernity. This is intellectual and spiritual polemic of a high order; very necessary."
-Dr. Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury
"Regina Schwartz has assembled a distinguished international body of thinkers, including some of the leading thinkers presently working in Europe and America. Together they make a searching inquiry into the place and possibility of transcendence today, raising along the way the question of the death of transcendence and whether transcendence has descended into immanence. An outstanding and impressive achievement."
-John D. Caputo, Villanova University
