Reviews

'... learned and carefully argued ...' Lloyd P. Gerson, University of Toronto 'Bradshaw's text admirably exposes a key philosophical divergence that rests at the heart of the East West schism. ... the text is a successful blend and extension of dissertation and supplemental research. ... his argument has great merit. Bradshaw succeeds in creating an important text that illuminates the shared foundations of eastern and western philosophy and theology, and should be taken seriously for its validation of a tradition that values the ontological as much as the epistemological.' British Journal for the History of Philosophy 'This book is ...worthy of deep respect.' The Westminster Theological Journal
