Baudrillard and Theology

Full Product Description

This is a look at Baudrillard's thought from a theological perspective. Jean Baudrillard was one of the foremost intellectual figures of the late twentieth century and his work is currently reaching a new prominence in the English-speaking world. Unlike other subjects of this series, Baudrillard's work is not directly addressed to theological concerns, espousing a post-Nietschean nihilism. However, his provocative analysis of the changing nature of reality, subjectivity and agency is of increasing importance to contemporary theology. Furthermore, his mode of cultural analysis (which he himself describes as "mystical") provides fruitful possibilities for theological reasoning in the post-idealist world he describes. Jim Walters provides the context of Baudrillard's writing and identifies key influences. He then sets out his core ideas, drawing in theological responses and relating them to theological concerns. Finally, he highlights some areas of his work of particular theological interest. "The Philosophy and Theology" series looks at major philosophers and explores their relevance to theological thought as well as the response of theology.

Baudrillard and Theology by James Walters was published by Bloomsbury Publishing PLC in June 2012. The ISBN for Baudrillard and Theology is 9780567543950.
