5.0 out of 5 stars Who suspected the "God Debate" could become so substantive?, November 18, 2009
This review is from: Reason, Faith, and Revolution: Reflections on the God Debate (The Terry Lectures Series) (Hardcover)
I greatly admire this book, even though I don't readily identify with Marxism. Instead of revolving around the usual, tired, increasingly uncompelling talking points about "facts" and dogmatism, it approaches fundamentalism (including much "new atheism") in terms of its condition of possibility: economic and social liberalism. In the process Eagleton draws on an unusually rich diversity of theoretical perspectives--not just Marxism. At the same time, it is anything but a self-indulgent exercise in theoretical nit-picking. Eagleton is, after all, a British Marxist, and he never loses sight of the material. In some ways it seemed condescending of him to even take up this topic (which is usually dealt with in an unnuanced, uncharitable, and paranoid fashion) and demonstrate how much can be drawn from it. For anyone who hasn't fused their brain shut, there is a lot challenging stuff to think about here, whatever side of the issue you identify with.
