A distinguished discussion of Weil's views on social philosophy, science, ethics, and religion.

Modest Christologies in the Twentieth Century
Wesley J. Wildman - Author

"This book's scope is unusually wide: it truly deals with Christology across the whole range of relevant issues--philosophical, historical, scientific, religious. It has a clear, consistent thesis: the advocacy of 'modest Christologies.' The thesis has significant originality, for Wildman points out strikingly the way in which 'modest' Christologies need not be 'low' ones and the way in which Christologies may make many 'modest' sounds and still rem...(Read More)

Sonia Sikka - Author

This book sets up a dialogue between Heidegger and four medieval authors: St. Bonaventure, Meister Eckhart, Johannes Tauler, and Jan van Ruusbroec.
