Beschreibung:

Two of the most brilliant minds of our time, Gianni Vattimo, the foremost representative of postmodernity, and Rene Girard, the famed French anthropologist, engage in an enthralling discussion on the cultural significance of Christianity. Both agree that Christianity's originality lies in its unheard-of repudiation of violence in the name of caritas, yet the Nietzschean in Vattimo draws relativistic consequences whereas Girard does not. Vattimo sees in this caritas the dissolution of every strong truth claim, while Girard stresses that this caritas remains a vital veritas for our time. For Girard there are truths, not only interpretations. -- Jean Grondin, Universite de Montreal, and author of Introduction to Metaphysics

Not Just Interpretations, There Are Facts, Too, by Rene GirardNotesBibliography
Christianity, Truth, and Weakening Faith advances just such a dialogue, featuring the collaboration of two major philosophers known for their progressive approach to this issue. Seeking unity over difference, Gianni Vattimo and René Girard turn to Max Weber, Eric Auerbach, and Marcel Gauchet, among others, in their exploration of truth and liberty, relativism and faith, and the tensions of a world filled with new forms of religiously inspired violence.
