Paul and the Philosophers, Paperback / softback Book

Paul and the Philosophers Paperback / softback

Edited by Ward Blanton, Hent de Vries


The apostle Paul has reemerged as a force on the contemporary philosophical scene.

Some of the most powerful recent affirmations of nonrepresentational, materialist, and event-oriented philosophies repeat topics and tropes of the ancient apostle.

Paul is appropriated both for and against Kantian cosmopolitanism, psychoanalytic models of subjectivity and power, Schmittian political theologies, Derridean messianism, political universalism, and an ongoing refashioning of identity politics within postsecular contexts. This book provides the most comprehensive constellation to date of current thinking about Paul and his cultural or philosophical "afterlives" in ancient, modern, and contemporary contexts.
