The Witholding Power

Full Product Description

The first English translation of his work, "The Witholding Power, "offers a fascinating introduction to the thought of Italian philosopher Massimo Cacciari, a prominent and provocative figure in Italian philosophy and political thought. Cacciari is a notoriously complex thinker but this title offers a starting point for entering into the very heart of his thinking. "The Witholding Power" provides a comprehensive and synthetic insight into his interpretation of Christian political theology and leftist Italian political theory more generally. The theme of "katechon "- originally a biblical concept which has been developed into a political concept - has been absolutely central to the work of Italian philosophers such as Agamben and Eposito for nearly twenty years. In "The Witholding Power, "Cacciari sets forth his startlingly original perspective on the influence the theological-political questions have traditionally exerted upon ideas of power, sovereignty and the relationship between political and religious authority.With a lengthy introduction by Howard Caygill contextualising the work within the history of Italian thought, this title will offer those coming to Cacciari for the first time a searing insight into his political, theological and philosophical milieu.

The Witholding Power by Massimo Cacciari was published by Bloomsbury Publishing PLC in December 2015. The ISBN for The Witholding Power is 9781472580481.
