Postmodern Theology and Spirituality

STH TT 857

This course examines the impact of philosophers like Nietzsche, Foucault, Levinas, Irigaray, and Derrida on the study of theology. Rather than shutting down a religious conversation, theologians within this tradition argue that postmodern thought opens up religious questions in new ways. What does postmodernism reveal about religious confessions and practices? How does this conversation help us to understand some of the shifts in spirituality and religious practice in our contemporary world? (John Caputo, Mark C. Taylor, Catherine Keller, and Mark D. Jordan). (Requires TF 701/702 or equivalent)
