After Can One Be a Non Believer? and What Should We Do With Religion?, this book is the third of a trilogy on the philosophy of religion. For Jacques Bouveresse, what is at stake is above all how we see faith as an attitude for confronting life. The author sheds light on Wittgenstein’s ideas by relating them to Keller’s and pitting them against Tolstoi, Nietzsche, Ibsen, and others.
