Spiritual Exercises for a Secular Age

Spiritual Exercises for a Secular Age: Desmond and the Quest for God (University of Notre Dame Press, 2020) by Boston College alumnus Ryan G. Duns, S.J., is at the crossroads of theology and philosophy.  In his book, Fr. Duns frames philosopher William Desmond’s metaphysical thought as a form of spiritual exercise. He argues that Desmond’s metaphysics attunes its readers to perceive disclosure of the divine in the everyday. Approached in this way, Fr. Duns demonstrates how practicing metaphysics can be understood as a form of spiritual exercise that renews in its practitioners an attentiveness to God in all things. Fr. Duns, who received a MTS and a doctorate from BC, is an assistant professor in the Theology Department at Marquette University.
