The reactivation of Paul: a critical dialogue on Giorgio Agamben

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review



Clearly, The Reactivation of Paul must be read as a coded expression that seeks to describe a specific phenomenon, namely the recent political turn in the approach to Paul brought about not so much by theology but rather by philosophy and the Theory of Culture. We might describe it as the impact of an unaccustomed editorial boom which links Atheists and Catholics, Jews and Protestants, and the odd Lacanian with the reinstatement of Paul. Within this heterogeneous and effervescent movement, the work of Giorgio Agamben, described by Paul Ricoeur as «vigorous», seems to us to be the one that offers the greatest and most original challenge to a contemporary reflection on Religion and Public Reason.
