Heidegger and Theology

Heidegger and Theology by Judith Wolfe

Heidegger and Theology was published on 19 June 2014 (T&T Clark). It is an authoritative and accessible guide to Heidegger’s debts and legacies to theological thought.





Pre-Publication Reviews:

  • ‘The most helpful thing on Heidegger I’ve come across. Lucid, illuminating and comprehensive, it traces Heidegger’s changing relationship to theology over the course of his life, and concludes with an overview of 20th and 21st century theological responses to Heidegger. Wolfe brings to bear both an immersion in the source material, some of it newly available and not yet translated, and an unusual clarity of mind. The result is a book which will be useful to both theologians and philosophers, and to students and advanced scholars alike. It is a pleasure to read.’
    — Karen Kilby, Durham University
  • ‘Judith Wolfe’s indispensible new book is a superb tour d’horizon of the terrain – biographical, philosophical, and theological – on which future work on the vexed topic of Heidegger and theology may be carried out.’
    — Thomas Sheehan, Stanford University
  • ‘This is the best kind of introduction: drawing on substantial scholarship in an accessible manner, and organized around a theme – the eschatological dimension of Heidegger’s thought – that illuminates every phase of its subject’s intellectual career as well as revealing one aspect of its underlying unity.’
    — Stephen Mulhall, Oxford University
  • ‘This is a groundbreaking book and a work of exceptional scholarship whose clarity of exposition exposes more than one widely-current obfuscation.’
    — John Milbank, University of Nottingham
