By Siobhán Garrigan

In past Ritual, Siobhan Garrigan makes use of Habermas's concept of communicative motion to indicate issues: first, a style during which theology can entry the ritual symbols during which religion is shaped; and secondly a metaphor of intersubjectivity with which theology can suggest an interpretative, instead of an instrumental, figuring out of sacramentality - and therefore of God.  via fieldwork experiences of either 'marginal' and 'mainstream' Christian Eucharists, Garrigan develops the dialog among Habermas's philosophy and Christian theology, exhibiting how ritual interactions shape, and problem, our very concept of God.
