This introductory chapter sets out the purpose of the book, which is to foster and extend conversations in Continental philosophy of religion that owe their particular vibrancy to Edith Wyschogrod's work — conversations about the desire of and for God, the nature of transcendence, the dilemmas of ethical existence, the obligations of historians, and possibilities in and for the future, as well as the nature of philosophical inquiry itself as it investigates that which requires its reorientation. It then presents a review of Wyschogrod's works followed by an overview of the subsequent chapters.

Keywords: Edith Wyschogrod; Continental philosophy of religion; God; transcendence; ethical existence
