Spirituality and Dialectics
Spirituality and Dialectics is a passionate and rigorous argument against nihilism and a manifesto for the party of meaning and hope. It demonstrates how we can ground principles of meaning and value, against the aesthetic and intellectual hegemony of the enlightenment-culminating most currently through postmodernity, as a basis for the critique of all present injustice. What emerges is a vision of a new social order that permits the full development of human social capacities.

About Maggie Mansueto
Anthony Mansueto teaches philosophy, religious studies, civilization studies, and honors seminars at University of New Mexico-Gallup. Maggie Mansueto is a preacher, teacher, and ligurgist. Anthony and Maggie Mansueto together lead Seeking Wisdom, a nonprofit research, education, and community action group.
This book is a major resource for those who seek renewal of hope in the human prospect. Anthony and Magie Mansueto delineate nothing less than a renewed integration of science, cosmology, theology, epistemology and social ethics to reestablish the foundation for the basic insight that the universe has ultimate meaning. Only a conviction that the pursuit of the good has its foundations in the reality of the universe itself can overcome a world founded on nihilism and the will to power and ground hopefilled action on behalf of a more just, peaceful and sustainable world. -- Rosemary Radford Ruether, Claremont School of Theology
