55. Some attempts have been made by Christian philosophers to welcome the insights of what I am calling the "critical philosophers." Merold Westphal, for example, has written a book entitled Suspicion and Faith: The Religious uses of Modern Atheism
, which is an attempt at critical self-reflection upon our sometimes idolatrous religiosity by meditating on the critical insights of Marx, Nietzsche, and Freud
, three of the best-known atheists of all time. [Westphal, Merold. Suspicion and Faith. Grand Rapids, MI: Wm. B. Eerdman's Publishing Co., 1993
]. He has also written many articles about the religious significance of Levinas. [See Merold Westphal's "Levinas and the Immediacy of the Face" in Faith and Philosophy
, Vol 10, No 4, October 1993; and his "Kierkegaard and Levinas in Dialogue" in Kierkegaard in Post/Modernity
]. Martin J.Matustik and Merold Westphal, eds. Bloomington
, IN: University of Indiana Press, 1995. Paul Ricouer (U. of Chicago) has also done religious work in relation to Marx, Freud and Nietzsche. James Marsh (Fordham) is a Christian Marxist, Galen Johnson (U. Rhode Island) has done work regarding Nietzsche and Christianity [Galen Johnson, "Faith After Nietzsche" in Christian Perspectives on Religious Knowledge, ed. by C. Steven Evans and Merold Westphal. Grand rapids, MI: Wm. B. Eerdmans, 1993.
], John D. Caputo (Villanova) has written on Derrida and Christian thought [John D. Caputo. "The Good News About Alterity: Derrida and Theology" in Faith and Philosophy, Vol 10, No 4, October 1993]
