The letter on apologetics and History and dogma by Maurice Blondel( Book )

12 editions published between 1964 and 1995 in English and held by 629 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The work of French philosopher Maurice Blondel lies behind most of the controversies in twentieth-century French Catholic thought, and bore its fruit in the Second Vatican Council. Recognized in Europe as one of the outstanding figures in the Catholic revival that began at the turn of the century, Blondel was described by Pope John Paul II as "one of the first to discern what was at stake in the Modernist crisis." Published together here are two of Blondel's most significant texts. The Letter on Apologetics (1896) is a key statement on the possibility and meaning of Christian philosophy. History and Dogma (1904), written in response to the Modernist crisis, is an important contribution to the notion of tradition, seeing it neither in terms of historicism nor as something mechanical, but as a living synthesis. Introductory essays by Alexander Dru and Illtyd Trethowan provide essential historical and biographical background as well as an account of the philosophical and theological principles of Blondel's thought. -- Back cover

The Church in the nineteenth century : Germany 1800-1918 by Alexander Dru( Book )

10 editions published in 1963 in English and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The outcome of the French Revolution was that it revealed the new situation in which the Church was to fulfil her mission. The process of adaptation and the response to this situation occupies a century and a half. It is part of the history of this process that is here described. While the political solution reached in France is adopted by Rome, in Germany the succession of events is different. Catholicism revived there spiritually and intellectually; and it is for this reason that the present volume pays particular attention to that country thus throwing light on a part of history that is usually neglected. It is a period dominated by the rival schools of Tübingen and Mainz and by great names -- Schlegel, Müller, Brentano, Görres, Möhler, Kettler -- as finally the Church emerges as a spiritual and dynamic organism rather than as a static corporation endowed with powers and privileges.

"The primary source for any understanding of either the man or his thought."--The Times (London) Literary Supplement Denmark's foremost philosopher and religious writer, Søren Kierkegaard (1813-1855) maintained a journal throughout his adult life that amounted to more than 7,000 pages of alternative drafts of published works, biographical events, musings, and outpourings. A precursor of the Existential movement and a major influence on modern Protestant theology, Kierkegaard confided to his journal further reflections on the ideas developed in his philosophical and theological works, and on his tumultuous career as an author. The English periodical, The Tablet, declared that "there can be few books in English that admit the reader so intimately to a process of thinking on such a scale, at so many levels, so unflinching and direct." Indeed, the journals attest to the philosopher's lively imagination, his poetic powers of self-expression, and the brilliance of his intellect. Students of philosophy and literature are bound to agree with The New Statesman's assessment that, "No biography can take the place of these Journals for the understanding of Kierkegaard's very peculiar position as a thinker."
