Hegel and Christian Theology A Reading of the Lectures on the Philosophy of Religion

Author: Peter C. Hodgson
Publisher: OUP Oxford
ISBN: 0199235716
Release Date: 2005-03-03
Genre: Philosophy and religion

Peter C. Hodgson engages the speculative reconstruction of Christian theology that is accomplished by Hegel's Lectures on the Philosophy of Religion, and provides a close reading of the critical edition of the lectures. He analyses Hegel's concept of the object and purpose of the philosophy of religion, his critique of the theology of his time, his approach to Christianity within the framework of the concept of religion, his concept of God, his reconstruction of central Christian themes, and his placing of Christianity among the religions of the world. Hodgson makes a case for the contemporary theological significance of Hegel by identifying currently contested sites of interpretation and their Hegelian resolution.
