The Veritas Series from SCM Press and the Centre for Theology and Philosophy at Nottingham University brings to market original volumes all engaging in critical questions of pressing concern to both philosophers, theologians, biologists, economists and more. Each book in this new series displays a rigorous theological critique of categories of study not often thought to be theological in character. The series aims to illustrate that without theology, something essential is lost in our account of such categories a " not only in an abstract way but in the way in which we inhabit the world.The Veritas Series refuses to accept disciplinary isolation: both for theology and for other disciplines.
a oeMarcus Pounda (TM)s first book is the most important sustained reflection on the relation of theology and psychoanalysis to date. His approach is admirably focused, since it compares the ideas of the theological founder of the complex motivational psychology a " SA, ren Kierkegaard a " with those of the most sophisticated secular psychoanalytical theorists a " Jacques Lacan. In doing so Pound offers, in a short compass, both a psychological deepening of theological orthodoxy and a theological critique of psychoanalysis as such. Future engagement with this area must begin with this lucid, subtle and brilliant treatise.a � - John Milbank
