Christ without Adam
Full Product Description
This study follows the ways in which the appropriations of Paul by Breton, Badiou, and i ek have either sidestepped or collapsed this interval, a crucial component in their articulations of a universal Pauline subject. As a result, sexual difference fails to materialize in their readings as a problem with any explicit force. Against these readings, Dunning asserts the importance of the Pauline Adam--Christ typology, not as a straightforward resource but as a witness to a certain necessary failure -- the failure of the Christian tradition to resolve embodied difference without remainder. This failure, he argues, is constructive in that it reveals the instability of sexual difference, both masculine and feminine, within an anthropological paradigm that claims to be universal yet is still predicated on male bodies.
Christ without Adam by Benjamin H. Dunning was published by Columbia University Press in May 2014. The ISBN for Christ without Adam is 9780231167659.
