Publisher's Description.

She provides an example of a Christian thinker deeply engaged in the debates of her own day, and her work offers models and insights for addressing the questions of the 21st century. Calcagno, Antonio (2007).

Edith Stein was beatified in 1987 and canonized in 1998 but is still relatively unknown in the English-speaking world. She provides an example of a Christian thinker deeply engaged in the debates of her own day, and her work offers models and insights for addressing the questions of the twenty-first century.Sarah Borden presents an overview of St Edith Stein's life and thought, beginning with her biography. She then covers her early work in phenomenology, her political writings, her studies on women and women's education, as well her later turn to medieval metaphysics, and spiritual and religious texts. The final chapter covers the controversies surrounding Stein's beatification and canonization.Arranged by topic and proceeding largely in chronological order, the book is accessible and aimed at a general audience, although the material is presented in such a way as to be useful to specialists.

Borden has done a very deft job of introducing a complex thinker to non-specialist audiences. As a trained Catholic philosopher, Borden is able to explain both Stein's pre-Catholic and post-conversion work, which includes philosophical, educational, and spiritual writings on topics ranging from the nature of the state to the prayer of the church.

She has a really valuable ability to express philosophical ideas briefly and clearly, and goes into considerable detail on Stein's theories of empathy, the person, woman, etc. More general readers may skip some of the philosophical detail, but will still find many parts of the book interesting.

Having done a recent dissertation on Stein, she is up-to-date on the large and growing body of Stein scholarship and often succinctly indicates where the current philosophical debates lie. She also includes a chapter on the Jewish-Catholic controversy surrounding Stein's canonization by Pope John Paul II.

This is a perfect introduction for academic readers coming to Stein for the first time. It's not for those interested mainly in Stein as a saint, however: there are many hagiographical and biographical books on Stein but this is not one of them. It is a work aimed at giving a sympathetic but objective overview of Stein as a thinker.
