The Political Theology of Kierkegaard

First Edition

Saitya Brata Das

Published by Edinburgh University Press

New Perspectives in Ontology

  • Intervenes in contemporary debates on post-secularism and the return to religion
  • Constructs a political theology that radically puts into question the logic of sovereign power
  • Re-thinks the place of religion as the radical outside that does not function as the legitimising principle of sovereignty in today's world of mass consumption
  • Sets the agenda for re-thinking the relation of religion and politics for our contemporary historical condition
