The Political Theology of Paul
Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungThis highly original interpretation of Paul by the Jewish philosopher of religion Jacob Taubes was presented in a number of lectures held in Heidelberg toward the end of his life, and was regarded by him as his "spiritual testament." Taubes engages with classic Paul commentators, including Karl Barth, but also situates the Pauline text in the context of Freud, Nietzsche, Benjamin, Adorno, Scholem, and Rosenzweig.
PortraitThe late Jacob Taubes held the chair in Hermeneutics at the Free University of Berlin. In the U.S., he taught as a visiting professor at Harvard. Taubes apparently published little during his lifetime, but had a very great influence as a teacher. In addition to the present posthumous volume, the Assmanns and others have edited a collection of his writings from 1953-1983 entitled "Vom Kult zur Kultur: Bausteine zu einer Kritik der historischen Vernunft"; two volumes of his works are currently coming out from Suhrkamp. This would be his first book to be translated into English. Aleida Assmann is Professor of English Literature and Literary Theory at the University of Konstanz. Jan Assmann is Professor of Egyptology at the University of Heidelberg. "Moses the Egyptian: An Essay in Mnemohistory" (Harvard, 1997) and "Re and Amun: The Crisis of Polytheism in New Kingdom Egypt" (Routledge, Chapman, & Hall, 1995) are his books to appear in English.
