Summary

This book shows the interconnections between postmodernism, religion, politics, economics, and art. It shows that the awareness of interconnectedness is at the center of the postmodern sensibility. Sacred Interconnections illustrates the rejection of the modern idea that these subjects can be discussed as separate disciplines.

While the term "postmodern" has been widely used for deconstructive, cynical, even nihilistic attitude, especially in the world of art and literature, the book represents the emergence of a reconstructive, reenchanting postmodernism, even within the artistic and literary circles.

David Ray Griffin is professor of philosophy of religion at the School of Theology at Claremont and Claremont Graduate School, executive director of the Center for Process Studies, and founding president of the Center for a Postmodern World. He is the author of God and Religion in the Postmodern World, Varieties of Postmodern Theology (with William A. Beardslee and Joe Holland), and Primordial Truth and Postmodern Theology (with Huston Smith) and the editor of Physics and the Ultimate Significance of Time, The Reenchantment of Science, and Spirituality and Society, also published by SUNY Press.
