Theology After Deleuze
Publisher: Bloomsbury Academic
Deleuze'srelationship with theology is a complex one. Indeed, there seem to be manypossible objections to such an 'assemblage' taking place. In the first book ofits kind to engage with this seemingly problematic dialogue, Kristien Justaertshows the ways in which Deleuze's thought can in fact advance issues inpolitical and liberation theology in particular, while also exploring theimportant theological and spiritual aspirations contained in Deleuze'sphilosophy itself, as part of his lifelong quest for the 'Absolute'. Justaert examines the theological components in Deleuze's writings, investigatingthe theological potential of four notions that circle around the centralDeleuzian concept of 'Life': immanence, spirituality, creativity and politics. Thebook goes on to connect Deleuze with both established theologies and possibletheologies for the future, identifying areas in which Deleuze can contribute tothe dynamics of contemporary theology, and argues that aspects of Deleuze'sphilosophy can enable theology to become more meaningful in a globalised world.This is the ideal introduction to Deleuzian theologies, and Deleuze's owntheology, for advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students.
