"This book is a clear and eloquent plea for a sacramental conception of our embodied life. Douglas Hedley's text presents an expansive intellectual vision, which shows how philosophical theology can take as its conversation partners not only Plato and Kant, but also Shakespeare and Coleridge, Holderlin and Tolkien, among many others. If you want to know how the tradition of Christian Platonism might be articulated in the context of contemporary debate, then read this book!" Mark Wynn, University of Exeter, UK
"Living Forms of the Imagination is a compelling, erudite articulation and defence of the indispensible cognitive value of the imagination in the philosophy of nature and God. Elegantly written, this book draws on Platonic and Romantic traditions to create a brilliant challenge to contemporary, reductive naturalists and those who advance a deflationary account of the imagination. This book is essential reading for those interested in the imagination, epistemology, naturalism, and the philosophy of religion." Charles Taliaferro, St Olaf College, Minnesota, USA.
