About the book:

Vaught identifies the place where religion and philosophy meet--and he does so in constant conversation with Augustine, Hegel, Heidegger, and Jaspers. Vaught argues that both religious and philosophical discourse assume one of four modes--figurative, analytical, systematic, or analogical--and that any real innovation occurs by moving from one mode of discourse to the other. Vaught also explores the relationship among "space," "time," and "place," as well as "mystery," "power," and "structure." Remarkably, Vaught shows how the category of "place" serves as the intersection of both triads. In the end, "place" is the orientation that guides the discussions of Being and God and is where philosophy and religion are joined.
