Over the past couple of decades, Richard Kearney and William Desmond have developed kindred but strikingly different philosophical theologies that draw on distinct, if at times overlapping, traditions within the history of philosophy and contemporary Continental philosophy. The relationship between their respective bodies of thought is both fascinating and important, and their dialogue—largely implicit, though with a number of direct engagements now available in print—is, I suggest, one of the richest in contemporary Continental philosophy of religion. This essay looks to provide a necessarily cursory interpretation of their relationship.
