about

Hans Urs von Balthasar (1905-1988) was one of the most prolific and influential theologians of the twentieth century. This book, the first English-language study of Balthasar, seeks to show the fruitfulness of his thought by drawing out its philosophical implications for the question of truth.

D. C. Schindler argues that a "dramatic" approach, shaping both the form and content of philosophy, enables a new conception of being, of human consciousness, and of their coming together to satisfy both traditional concerns about unity and postmodern calls for difference-while avoiding the pitfalls of a one-sided emphasis on either.

D. C. Schindler is Visiting Associate Professor of Philosophy at Villanova University and the associate editor of Communio.

Scholars interested in Balthasar cannot ignore Schindler's latest volume, for no other English-language study of Balthasar has reached its depth, range, and perspicacity.
