Foucault and Theology (Philosophy and Theology)

Jonathan Tran


close to the tip of his existence, Michel Foucault grew to become his realization to the early church Fathers. He did so now not for something like a go back to God yet fairly simply because he present in these resources choices for re-imaging the self. And even though Foucault by no means heavily entertained Christianity past theorizing its aesthetic sort one could argue that Christian practices like confession or Eucharist proportion relatives resemblances to Foucaultian sensibilities. This e-book will clarify tips to do theology in mild of Foucault, or extra accurately, to learn Foucault as though God mattered. for this reason, it is going to search to articulate practices like confession, prayer, and so forth as thoughts for the self, situate "the church as politics" inside of current constellations of strength, divulge theological knowledges as modes of severe intervention, or what Foucault referred to as archaeology, and conceptualize Christian life in time via mnemonic practices of family tree.
