Naturalism's Philosophy of the Sacred: Justus Buchler, Karl Jaspers, and George Santayana

Lanham, MD: Lexington Books (2013)
  Copy   BIBTEX


Naturalism's Philosophy of the Sacred furthers the tradition of religious naturalism by offering an approach to the sacred through the metaphysical categories of ordinality and ontological parity put forward by twentieth-century American naturalist Justus Buchler. The book's chief argument is that the most effective antidote to religious violence is an aesthetic interpretation of the sacred understood as an order in and of nature.
