another ‘beyond universal reason’

I just got Beyond Universal Reason: The Relation Between Religion and Ethics in the Work of Stanley Hauerwas by Emmanuel Katongole, a Catholic philosopher from Uganda. It is part of the reading for my Language and Theology class. It enters into the claims of whether, following Wittgenstein, language games (and ethics/politics) are universally approachable or incommensurable, or perhaps a third option b/w universal reason and fideism, a realism w/o empiricism (which is where our class is going).

I should finish it this weekend, and we’ll see where it takes me.
