Messianic Thought Outside Theology
Full Product Description
Mention of a messiah invokes a future, a "to-come" that, even if its date and contents are indeterminate, forms part of a conservative structure. With the invocation of a future arrival, history is opened as that which obtains as long as the end has not yet arrived. It has an open or free quality. With an opposing gesture, however, the assumption of an ultimate arrival in fact precedes history, making history itself highly deterministic. The coming arrival, so certain, so complete, will have already come in an anteriority that seems to cancel the future and close down historical life before it starts. The use and abuse of this paradox is brought into focus over the course of the collection.
