about

In this phenomenological reading of Luther, Marius Timmann Mjaaland shows that theological discourse is never philosophically neutral and always politically loaded. Raising questions concerning the conditions of modern philosophy, religion, and political ideas, Marius Timmann Mjaaland follows a dark thread of thought back to its origin in Martin Luther. Thorough analyses of the genealogy of secularization, the political role of the apocalypse, the topology of the self, and the destruction of metaphysics demonstrate the continuous relevance of this highly subtle thinker.

Editorial Reviews

"Mjaaland reveals a radical Luther whose break with prior metaphysics sowed the seeds for deep cultural stuggles into the future in ways that came to frighten even Luther himself." -Paul S. Rowe, author of Religion and Global Politics
