Product description

The book begins by tracing the shifting use and nature of metaphysics through the thought of figures like Kant, Hegel, Nietzsche, Heidegger, Derrida, Levinas, and others -- a discussion that highlights the significant "interruption" that Christian thought introduced to the Western philosophical tradition. This discussion sets the stage for a retrieval of the classic Christian account of beauty and sublimity, and of the relation of both to the question of being. By framing his reflection in relation to the Trinity, creation, salvation, and the eschaton, Hart is able to demonstrate the power of Christian metaphysics not only to withstand the critiques of modern and postmodern thought but also to move well beyond them. Challenging and deeply rewarding, The Beauty of the Infinite is both a useful account of the history of metaphysics and a compelling contribution to it.
