(p.155) 6 “Can We Believe All This?”
Cavell, Companionship, and Christian Theology

Peter Dula

Oxford University Press

Unlike most contemporary philosophers, Cavell refuses to dismiss theological concerns and remains respectfully open to theological dialogue, confessing that “to choose between Judaism and Christianity is … still a live issue for me.” This chapter examines the moments in his work when those theological concerns surface most explicitly. Drawing on the work of Rowan Williams and Karl Barth, it shows how Cavell's account of the human and a theological anthropology rooted in the incarnation can be important resources for each other.

Keywords:   Stanley Cavell, Rowan Williams, Karl Barth, incarnation, theological anthropology
