Mark Dooley

Mark Dooley currently holds the position of John Henry Newman Scholar in Theology at University College Dublin, where he has taught philosophy and theology since 1993. Along with QUESTIONING ETHICS (Routledge, 1999), which he coedited with Richard Kearney, Dooley is author of THE POLITICS OF EXODUS (Fordham, Autumn 2001), a radical analysis of Kierkegaard as postmodern political thinker. He is also coeditor, with John D. Caputo and Michael J. Scanlon, of QUESTIONING GOD (Indiana, Autumn 2001), a book of essays based on the second international Religion and Postmodernism conference held at Villanova University in 1999. Described by Richard Kearney as "a pioneering young figure in contemporary philosophy of religion," Dooley has written extensively on the philosophical, political, ethical, and theological consequences of the work of such figures as Hegel, Kierkegaard, Heidegger, Ricoeur, Derrida, Rorty, Milbank, and Levinas. He has just finished editing a book of essays dedicated to the work of John D. Caputo, entitled FROM AQUINAS TO DERRIDA. This includes an interview with Derrida, in which the latter spells out what is at stake for God and religion after deconstruction. Dooley is currently working on a book entitled IN PRAISE OF PROPHESY, in which he argues in favor of a postmodern theology as the best response to the phenomenon of globalization. His articles are to be found in such journals as PHILOSOPHY TODAY, PHILOSOPHY AND SOCIAL CRITICISM, CULTURAL VALUES, and IMPRIMATUR, and he has contributed to the following collections: THE INTERNATIONAL KIERKEGAARD COMMENTARY: WORKS OF LOVE (Mercer, 2000); KIERKEGEGAARD: THE SELF IN SOCIETY (Gill & Macmillan, 1998); TRAVERSING THE IMAGINARY (Northwestern University Press, 2001); INTERNATIONAL ENCYCLOPEDIA OF THE SOCIAL AND
BEHAVIOURAL SCIENCES (Pergamon, 2001); THE ENCYCLOPEDIA OF IRELAND (Gill & Macmillan, 2001).
