Answering the Enlightenment

The Catholic Recovery of Historical Revelation

Revelation, one of the most important concepts in Western religious thought, has, in modern times, been critiqued or abandoned entirely. Grant Kaplan’s perceptive study shows how Catholic views of revelation can help us retrieve the spiritual insights from the Enlightenment. 

Kaplan examines some of the well-known and lesser-known figures in the Enlightenment and post-Enlightenment. Major themes and figures include G.E. Lessing, Immanuel Kant, Johann Gottlieb Fichte, and Johannes Kuhn, as well as Friedrich Schelling's later, often ignored philosophy of revelation.

"Kaplan situates his authors in a way that renders them delightfully alive in their existential, cultural, and academic contexts."
