The postmodern situation has culminated in an ideological postmodernism that has declared the end of philosophy, the death of the subject, the impossibility of meaning, and the apotheosis of a culture of absence and excess. This has led to the development of a variety of “postcritical,” or “postliberal,” attempts to sift back through the history of Western philosophy and religion to reevaluate older systems of thought and wisdom, in order to refashion philosophies of ethical agency, identity, philosophical meaning, and truth. Liturgical reasoning follows on the movement of Scriptural Reasoning that attempts to reinvigorate Western philosophy and religion through interaction with classical Western scriptures. Liturgical reasoning parallels Scriptural Reasoning in its attempt to reconstitute an ethics and theology for the twenty‐first century.
