Reframing Continental Philosophy of Religion
Series edited by Steven Shakespeare and Duane Williams, both Liverpool Hope University.
Reframing Continental Philosophy of Religion aims to revitalise continental philosophy of religion. It challenges the standard Western Christian framework which has dominated philosophy of religion in the academy. It provides a platform for voices, theories and traditions which have been suppressed or marginalised by that framework, and offers genuinely new and constructive openings in the field. It is motivated by an imperative to liberate original thinking about religion from the legacy of Empire.
The series is experimental, creative, subversive and risky. It promotes work which brings continental philosophy of religion into fruitful dialogue with postcolonial theory; Islamic studies; heretical, esoteric or mystical or otherwise marginalised Western traditions; non-Western philosophical traditions; and critical studies of power, race, gender and sexuality. Taking seriously the fertility of European philosophy, it does not, however, merely subject ‘other’ discourses to a European gaze, but allows different discourses to interact and mutate one another on a mutual basis.
Reframing Continental Philosophy of Religion will not leave continental philosophy of religion as it finds it.
The series is published in partnership with the Association for Continental Philosophy of Religion. We welcome new book proposals – please contact the series editors, Steven Shakespeare [email protected] and Duane Williams [email protected] if you would like to discuss a project idea.
