On Agamben, Arendt, Christianity, and the Dark Arts of Civilization [9780567682758]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
Progressives have found passages that suggest Augustine might have entertained hopes for meaningful political melioration in his time and that could make his political theology an especially valuable source for an ethics of democratic citizenship and for hopeful citizenship in ours. Peter Iver Kaufman argues that his sentiments may more compellingly offer a radical alternative to prevailing progressive politics. Exploring Augustine's roughly contemporary experiments with the political culture, the book examines Georgio Agamben's disenchantments and alternatives alongside those of Augustine, comparing the former's fascination with the refugees, as opposed to citizens who embrace forms of life promoted by political protocols. Kaufman then chronicles Hannah Arendt's criticism of the alternative model and her preferences for and commitments to more direct political engagement.
AUTHOR: "Peter Iver Kaufman is Professor Emeritus at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, USA, and holds the George Matthews and Virginia Brinkley Modlin Chair in Leadership Studies at the University of Richmond, USA."
