Maurice Blondel: A Philosophical Life

Author: Oliva Blanchette

[Image: Maurice Blondel: A Philosophical Life]

French philosopher Maurice Blondel (18611949) had a tremendous impact on both philosophy and religion in the twentieth century. He was at once a postmodern critical philosopher and a devout traditional Catholic who strove to keep these two sides of his life in unison, neither separating nor confusing them.

In this first-ever critical examination of Blondel's entire life and work, Oliva Blanchette tells of Blondel's stormy confrontations with an academy dismissive of religion and a religion uncomfortable with rational philosophy. The book recounts both Blondel? biographical history and his systematic philosophy in meticulous detail.
