"A fertile collection of papers, which supports the hope that current moral philosophy might break out of the specialised confines of narrow intellectual debate and recover its traditional role of coming to terms with the human condition in all its rich ethical and psychological complexity. The fascinating opening essay by Raimond Gaita, and many of the papers that follow, explore the interface between moral and religious thinking, and reach towards a more humane conception of philosophizing - one that takes us beyond abstract theorizing to the task of understanding what it would be to live in a more meaningful way." John Cottingham, Professor Emeritus of Philosophy, University of Reading, and Professorial Research Fellow, Heythrop College, University of London, UK.Reseña del editor:
Moral Powers, Fragile Beliefs suggests new ways of thinking about moral philosophy in its under-explored but potentially very fruitful encounter with philosophy of religion. The contributors to this volume undertake this project through a variety of novel approaches, via literature, psychoanalysis, history of philosophy, continental and feminist thought, as well as by means of analytic philosophy. The volume will include essays by both highly regarded academics who have already made significant contributions in the fields of moral and/or religious philosophy - and a select number of young, up-and-coming researchers, who will add fresh voices to the debate.
