    The first couple of chapters still represent some of the best attempts at articulating the liveliness that comes from taking this fleshy, mortal world as the point of reference for all my hopes, desires and longings. There's a real chance of coming alive when relating to my own mortality, the insatiableness of my desires and the groundless of my being, like Mangabeira Unger wonderfully describes it.These topics are the main take-aways from this book. The chapters on the three world-religions are [...]

    I'm going to be straight with you. I clicked "I'm finished" not because I'd read it from cover to cover but because the read was dense and dry and so hard to stay engaged with.

    Review to appear in the Journal of the American Academy of Religion. This is my opening paragraph:The Religion of the Future is an extended manifesto for Roberto Mangabeira Unger’s version of prophetic pragmatism. It urges a new, revolutionary transformation of human life supported by an (a)theology of Godless divinization. The heralded revolution deepens and extends transformations of the past, although Unger maintains that prevailing theses about the nature and significance of the so-called [...]
