Abstract

John Caputo is best known as one of the primary interpreters of the deconstructive philosophy of Jacques Derrida to continental philosophy of religion at the turn of the twenty-first century. This chapter introduces Caputo’s corpus of work with a specific emphasis on his conception of “weak” ontology and his later engagement with radical theology.
