An Interview with John D. Caputo , ed. John D. Caputo has a long career as one of the preeminent postmodern philosophers in America. A Passion for the Impossible: John D.
It was inevitable that postmodernism would return to metaphysics. After the modernists taught us that religion was dead, and after the resulting triumph of postmodernist interrogation—which convinced us that there are no trustworthy foundations for social or moral values, that all belief as well as identity is socially constructed, that there is a silent campaign to mold our intelligences and social consciousnesses by Microsoft and the Disney Corporation, and that the Western tradition of thought is defunct or should be—we sat in our Pottery Barn living rooms after Pilates with our televisions turned off and wondered what to do next. Some of us began to yearn for what we have been taught is the last gasp of the desperate: a foundational meaning for life. What was surprisingly surprising to those who took this last route was the revelation of a metaphysical strain of thought lurking in Foucault's historical geneologies as well as Cornell West's liberatory rhetoric and Jacques Derrida's deconstructive fireworks. Metaphysics has in fact become immensely more interesting after the Western wall has come down.
The paper reviews the primary aspects of theology of the event, developed by John Caputo, a key representative of modern continental philosophy of religion. His concept 'weakness of God' is of post-metaphysic nature and is underpinned by Jacques Derrida's deconstruction, Gianni Vattimo's 'weak thought' and Gilles Deleuze's logic of sense. Distinction drawn by the author between the event, as a pre-personal, transcendent sphere of possibilities and creative impulses, and the name which is unable to exhaust the wealth of the event and remains a mere conceptual approach to it, plays the key role in John Caputo's concept. Accordingly, Caputo perceives God as a special event, a 'weak force', a messianic call to love, justice and non-programmed future, which is devoid of any ontological status. Proceeding from this view, Caputo cardinally revises the classical Christian doctrines of God sovereignty, creation of the world and the atoning death of Christ. Boeve L. Brabant C.
Paul Binski has written an imaginative and thorough survey of the systematization of Christian death and burial and its impact on the formation of medieval Europe. This essay burgeons with poignant and humorous anecdotes and contains dozens of elegant pictures and images which he skillfully interprets. His engaging prose glides the reader through complicated art-historical and theological concepts and hitherto obscure visual and literary medieval representations of death and the afterlife. This work not only helps unveil the profound significance of the visual and literary culture of medieval death but projects it richly onto a host of political, social, and theological matters. Students of medieval religion, medieval art, and medieval architecture will be delighted with this work. Yet several puzzling problems mar the essay and invite comment. Binski, an art historian who is expert and at ease with appraisal and discussion of fellow art historians and medievalists, forces his reader into unnecessary and bewildering encounters with an array of prominent social scientists.

The term deconstruction-and-religion describes a nontheistic mode of thought that proceeds from a theological and deconstructive framework. In terms of dogmatic theology , deconstruction-and-religion ranges from almost certainly atheistic to out-and-out atheistic. Those that take a deconstructive approach to religion identify closely with the work of Jacques Derrida , especially his work later in life. Caputo describes Derrida's work in the s as a Nietzschean free play of signifiers while he describes Derrida's work in the s as a "religion without religion.

Growing up as an evangelical and still living as one , comic books exposed me to the literature that many evangelicals then considered classic. Cartoons do not re-present this literature well, but In His Steps worked better as a comic than most classic Christian literature. As a teenager, I read the entire book. The opening scene left a lasting impression. Something about that question still seems right. As I entered adulthood as a budding scholar and clergyman, however, WWJD lost much of its urgency and bite.
