Wittgenstein, one of the most influential, and yet widely misunderstood, philosophers of our age, confronted his readers with aporias-linguistic puzzles-as a means of countering modern philosophical confusions over the nature of language without replicating the same confusions in his own writings. In Ethics as Grammar, Brad Kallenberg uses the writings of theological ethicist Stanley Hauerwas as a foil for demonstrating how Wittgenstein's method can become concrete within the Christian tradition. Kallenberg shows that the aesthetic, political, and grammatical strands epitomizing Hauerwas's thought are the result of his learning to do Christian ethics by thinking through Wittgenstein.

MEDIA REVIEWS
In his carefully crafted and insightful Ethics as Grammar, Brad Kallenberg portrays a dependent relation between two important thinkers.... [I]t is a surprising one. He suggests that you cannot really understand Stanley Hauerwas until you have read Ludwig Wittgenstein. Who would think of associating these two minds? Kallenberg, however, makes the case brilliantly and in the process adds much to our comprehension of both thinkers. Pro Ecclesia"
In this perceptive and often mesmerizing book Kallenberg suggests innovative readings of two of the 20th century s most significant ethicists, Ludwig Wittgenstein and Stanley Hauerwas. . . . He has a perceptive and unconventional interpretation of the challenges facing theological ethics today. Theological Studies"

"This study of the work of Ludwig Wittgenstein and Stanley Hauerwas offers a much-needed contribution to contemporary theological ethics. The degree of difficulty that is involved in studying either of the subjects of this book is high enough, but to take on both is nothing less than stunning. . . Thanks to Kallenberg's excellent study, philosophical and theological understanding of these issues has been newly enriched. I predict that in the years to come Ethics as Grammar will be a central text for theological ethicists writing after Hauerwas." --Journal of Religion
