Project Description

I propose to complete the final three of five volumes in my ''Criticism of Heaven and Earth'' series, which is a comprehensive critical commentary on the engagement with theology by leading materialist thinkers (from Marx to Zizek) from the 19th century until today. Drawing upon neglected work on theology and religion, the series sets the current interest in political theology in historical perspective, critically recasts the reception of their thought in light of their theological texts, and produces my own coherent body of work in response. Given the reception of Criticism of Heaven (Brill 2007) which is being translated into Chinese, Portuguese and Danish, I anticipate that the series will become a benchmark work.
