Synopsis

Can theology still operate in the void of post-theism? In attempting to answer this question Agnosis examines the concept of the void itself, tracing a history of nothingness from Augustine through Kierkegaard and Nietzsche to Bataille and Derrida, and dialoguing with Japan's Kyoto School philosophers. It is argued that neither Augustinian nor post-Hegelian metaphysics have given a satisfactory understanding of nothingness and that we must look to an experience of nothingness as the best ground for future religious life and thought.

George Pattison is 1640 Professor of Divinity at the University of Glasgow, having previously held posts at King's College Cambridge, the Universities of Aarhus and Oxford. He has published extensively on the philosophy of religion since Hegel, especially Kierkegaard and Heidegger, and on theology, art, and literature. His recent books include God and Being (2011), Kierkegaard and the Quest for Unambiguous Life (2013) and Heidegger and Death (2013).
