A witty and accessible study by this prominent Marxist thinker,
which launches a perhaps surprising defence of the reality of evil
in our contemporary world. He draws on literary, theological and
psychoanalytic sources to demonstrate that evil is a real
phenomenon with palpable force.
"'Terry Eagleton's Reason, Faith, and Revolution attacks the new atheism as a kind of secular counter-fundamentalism... Better than any previous book of its kind.' (James Wood, The New Yorker) 'Jaunty and surprisingly entertaining, Eagleton's argument is subtle, intricate, provocative and limpidly expressed... A valuable contribution to a debate as old as Adam and Eve and as contemporary as 9/11 and Abu Ghraib.' (John Banville, Irish Times)"
Terry Eagleton is Professor of English Literature at the National University of Ireland, Galway, Distinguished Professor of Cultural Theory at Lancaster University, and Professor of English Literature at Notre Dame. He is the author of many books, including Reason, Faith, and Revolution: Reflections on the God Debate.
