The Aesthetics and Ethics of Faith

A Dialogue Between Liberationist and Pragmatic Thought

Christopher D. Tirres

AAR Reflection and Theory in the Study of Religion

  • First book to approach liberation themes using pragmatism in such an explicit and sustained way
  • Uses two central categories that present a new hermeneutic that improves upon previous interpretive categories, especially "faith and politics"
  • Reconstructs Dewey's philosophy of religion in a way that improves upon his own articulation of religious faith in A Common Faith.
  • Breaks new ground in systematically applying Dewey's theory of education to religious ritual
  • Builds new bridges between liberationist thought and pragmatism
