Insurrectionary Turns in Political Theology
January 29, 2017 § Leave a comment
In the scholarly discussion around political theology — and more broadly, “theory” — the theme of insurrection recurs both in various texts published by semiotext(e) and recently in an essay collection entitled The Insurrectionist Manifesto and Carl Raschke’s Force of God, which are published with Columbia University Press in their Insurrections series. Much of this literature is part of a larger philosophical interest in St. Paul among thinkers such as Alain Badiou and Slavoj Žižek. In this recent post for the blog, Political Theology Today, I offer a different genealogy for a current political exigence.
