An Insurrectionist Manifesto: Four New Gospels for a Radical Politics (Insurrections: Critical Studies in Religion, Politics, and Culture)

Ward Blanton, Jeffrey W. Robbins


An Insurrectionist Manifesto includes 4 insurrectionary gospels in response to Martin Heidegger's philosophical version of the fourfold: earth and sky, gods and mortals. difficult spiritual dogma and dominant philosophical theories, they give a cooperative, world-affirming political theology that promotes new existence via no longer resurrection yet riot. The rebel in those gospels unfolds as a sequence of amazing but worldly practices of important confirmation. on account that those exercises don't depend upon fantasies of break out, they engender intimate variations of the self alongside the very coordinates from which they emerge. Enacting a comparative and contagious postsecular sensibility, those gospels draw at the paintings of Slavoj Žižek, Giorgio Agamben, Catherine Malabou, François Laruelle, Peter Sloterdijk, and Gilles Deleuze but rejuvenate scholarship in continental philosophy, severe race thought, the hot materialisms, speculative realism, and nonphilosophy. they suspect past the sovereign strength of the single to begin a thorough politics "after" God.
