Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Between Faith and Unbelief: American Transcendentalists and the Challenge of Atheism contains the table of contents, and acknowledgments. The book sets out to shed light on what is specific to American Transcendentalism by comparing it with the atheistic vision of German philosophers and theologians like Ludwig Feuerbach and Arthur Schopenhauer. Atheism technically refers both to the belief that there is no personal God as an object of faith and the claim that a God cannot exist. For Unitarian critics, the Transcendentalists' "infidelity" was primarily a result of their growing receptivity to the religious and philosophical models of Germany.
