“The Pauline Ellipsis in Foucault’s Genealogy of Christianity”

January 14, 2011

Spend all your spare time wondering whether the apostle Paul is at the origin of modern biopolitics or, to the contrary, enables its dissolution? Well, wonder no more! At least not on your lonesome. The latest issue of the Journal for Cultural and Religious Theory, on “Michel Foucault and St Paul,” is now up, and it promises to answer that question. Okay, discuss it at least. Among others. My own essay [pdf] is the cough that clears the issue’s throat, spraying Žižek with spittle.

  1. John Says:

    Who was the appalling “Paul”?
    Did anyone ever meet him?

    How could anything “new” possibly be written about, or attributed to “Paul”, who in 2011 is just another benighted fictional character in a now archaic piece of “religious” fiction.

    All “pauline” speculations SUCKS and should be thrown away with both hands – just like all rotten garbage.


  2. But then how would biblical critics justify their tenure?
