Two Books that Work Great Together

July 31, 2015 § Leave a comment

As the summer semester ends and I get about a week to my own work, I’m in the process of reviewing Carl Raschke’s new book, Force of God: Political Theology and the Crisis of Liberal Democracy.  Carl is a former professor of mine and is soon to be one again, as I begin a second PhD. in Religious Studies and Theology at the University of Denver this fall. Carl’s new book works very well in tandem with a book by another former professor of mine, Victoria Kahn’s The Future of Illusion: Political Theology and Early Modern Texts.  I continue to learn from both of these teachers and am thankful when my teaching schedule opens enough to really spend time with their remarkably lucid works.  Their thinking greatly influenced my dissertation, Beware of Mad John: Psychedelic Aesthetics, Political Theology, and Literature.  Last summer I taught a class on Psychedelic Aesthetics and Liberal Crises, and the lectures are in previous posts on this blog.  With time and meditation and continued help from such good thinkers, I plan to eventually publish my dissertation in book form.
