Religion as Narrative, Faith as Recontextualization: Lyotard and Rorty Meet Kierkegaard

Abstract: The aim of this paper is to explore postmodern/pragmatic thought about faith in the light of existentialism. Specifically, I will explore Kierkegaard's thought in relation to 1) Jean-Francois Lyotard and the problems of 'authentic' community and metanarratives, and 2) Richard Rorty's notion of recontextualization and its application to religious belief.
