The Political Theology of Schelling

Full Product Description

Saitya Brata Das rigorously examines the theologico-political works of F. W. J. von Schelling and sets his thought against Hegel's more dominant approach. He argues that Schelling inaugurates a new thinking outside of Occidental metaphysics, by a paradoxical manner of exit, which prepares for the post-metaphysical philosophy of Martin Heidegger, Franz Rosenzweig and Jacques Derrida. This new reflection, outside of the Universal world-historical politics of modernity, is achieved by re-thinking religion as eschatology. Intervening in contemporary debates on post-secularism and the return to religion, Das shows that religion, in an essential sense, always opens up infinitude from the heart of finitude, to an irreducible outside of the profane order of worldly hegemonies. Religion here assumes a negative political theology of exception without sovereign power.

The Political Theology of Schelling by Saitya B Das was published by Edinburgh University Press in August 2016. The ISBN for The Political Theology of Schelling is 9781474416900.
