About the Author

Anna Strhan is Lecturer in Religious Studies at theUniversity of Kent, where she is researching the formation ofreligious subjectivities in contemporary British society. With abackground in philosophy of education, cultural sociology, andreligious studies, Strhan s work explores relationshipsbetween knowledge, meaning, embodiment and ethics in modernsocieties.


?In her new book on Levinas, Subjectivity, Education, Anna Strhan perceptively notes that 'Decreasing participation in institutional religions combined with the increased visibility of religion in the public sphere are together leading to wider religious illiteracy and poor quality public discourse on religion'. This is the fundamental challenge addressed in the book, and she draws on contemporary continental philosophy, educational theory, and, not least, educational practice in Britain today to offer a new and challenging response. She takes two major philosophers (Levinas and Badiou), a major theoretical and practical question (autonomy versus heteronomy), and a major feature of contemporary society (religion) and produces a beautifully clear and insightful argument that will unsettle assumptions across the field of education and the study of religion, as well as throwing important new light on the hugely influential work of Emmanuel Levinas. This book is a must for educationalists, philosophers, and scholars of religion.? ? George Pattison, Lady Margaret Professor of Divinity, University of Oxford
