"Anyone interested in the themes of faith, reason, and transcendence should read this book". -- John Haldane, Professor of Philosophy, University of St. Andrews

Daringly extending the agenda of what is usually considered as 'philosophy of religion, ' Fergus Kerr argues that more religion exists in modern secular philosophy than many philosophers admit. Examining much-discussed contemporary philosophers such as Martha Nussbaum, Martin Heidegger, Iris Murdoch, Luce Irigaray, Stanley Cavell, and Charles Taylor, Kerr reads their respective stories in the light of Karl Barth's notion that "transcending our humanity only makes us more human than ever". In Kerr's view, transcendence -- the "immortal longings" of his title -- plays a central role in many of these philosophers' systems of beliefs.
