Sarah Borden

$45.00

Paperback
Edith Stein, canonized in 1998 but still relatively unknown in the English-speaking world, provides an example of a Christian thinker deeply engaged in the debates of her own day. Her work offers models and insights for addressing the questions of the twenty-first century. Sarah Borden presents an overview of St. Edith Stein's life and thought, including chapters about her life and the major areas in which she wrote, such as her early work in phenomenology, her political writings, her studies on women and women's education, as well her later turn to medieval metaphysics, and spiritual and religious texts. Also discussed are the controversies surrounding Stein's beatification and canonization. Arranged by topic and proceeding largely in chronological order, the book is accessible and aimed at a general audience, although the material is presented in a way that will ensure its usefulness to specialists.
