About this Book

Faith, Rationality and the Passions presents a fresh and original examination of the relation of religious faith, philosophical rationality and the passions. Contributions see leading scholars refute the widely-held belief that religious Enlightenment forced passion and reason apart.

  • Leading Philosophical experts offer new research on the relation of faith, reason and the passions in classic and Enlightenment figures
  • Overturns the widely-held presumption that the Enlightenment was responsible for creating a gulf between reason and passion
  • Presents original and innovative research on the importance of the late-19th century creation of the category of 'emotion', and its striking difference from classic ideas of passion
  • Brings together secular science and philosophy of emotion with philosophical theology to seek a new integration of belief, emotion and reason
