Format: Paperback
John Caputo investigates the claim of many modern philosphers
that Heidegger became a mystic in the latter part of his life.
Caputo performs a careful analysis of this claim by looking
at the writings of Heidegger as they relate to a true German
mystic, Meister Eckhart. Does Heidegger's relationship
between being and Being equate to Eckhart's soul and God?
Does his use of "Gelassenheit", a term of Eckhart's meaning
detachment, show a common belief? Caputo's book works on
many levels. It brings together two of the great "book ends"
of Germany philosophy, spanning the 14th to 20th centuries.
And, just as Caputo does a wonderful job of conveying Heidegger's
thought, so, too, he captures the mysticism of Eckhart. It
was this which actually appealed to me more, and I believe
the book can be an excellent introduction into the thinking
of one of the greatest mystics of all time -- Eckhart.

More About the Author

John D. Caputo, the Thomas J. Watson Professor of Religion Emeritus (Syracuse University) and the David R. Cook Professor of Philosophy Emeritus (Villanova University) is a hybrid philosopher/theologian who works in the area of radical theology. His most recent book, "The Insistence of God: A Theology of Perhaps," is a sequel to The Weakness of God, which develops his concept of radical theology and engages in dialogue with Malabou, Zizek and Latour. He has also just published "Truth," a part of the Penguin "Philosophy in Transit" series, aimed a general audience. His interest is centered on a poetics of the "event" harbored in the name of God, a notion that depends upon a reworking of the notions of event in Derrida and Deleuze. His past books have attempted to persuade us that hermeneutics goes all the way down ("Radical Hermeneutics"), that Derrida is a thinker to be reckoned with by theology ("The Prayers and Tears of Jacques Derrida"), and that theology is best served by getting over its love affair with power and authority and embracing what Caputo calls, following St. Paul, "The Weakness of God." His notion of the weakness of God, an expression that needs to be interpreted carefully by following what he means by "event," is reducible neither to an orthodox notion of kenosis nor to a death of God theology (Altizer, Zizek), although it bears comparison to both. He has also addressed wider-than-academic audiences in "On Religion," "Philosophy and Theology," and "What Would Jesus Deconstruct?" and has an interest in interacting with working church groups like Ikon and the Emergent Church. While at Syracuse, Professor Caputo specialized in continental philosophy of religion, which means both working on radical approaches to religion and theology in the light of contemporary phenomenology, hermeneutics and deconstruction, and tracking down the traces of radical religious and theological motifs in contemporary continental philosophy.
