Continental philosophy underwent a ‘return to religion’ or a ‘theological turn’ in the late 20th century. And yet any conversation between continental philosophy and theology must begin by addressing the perceived distance between them: that one is concerned with destroying all normative, metaphysical order (continental philosophy’s task) and the other with preserving religious identity and community in the face of an increasingly secular society (theology’s task). Colby Dickinson argues in Continental Philosophy and Theology rather that perhaps such a tension is constitutive of the nature of order, thinking and representation which typically take dualistic forms and which might be rethought, though not necessarily abolished. Such a shift in perspective even allows one to contemplate this distance as not opting for one side over the other or by striking a middle ground, but as calling for a nondualistic theology that measures the complexity and inherently comparative nature of theological inquiry in order to realign theology’s relationship to continental philosophy entirely.

Band 1: Die Phänomenalität der Politik in der Gegenwart. Band 2: Die zwei Körper der Nation
Figurationen des Politischen sind Verkörperungen souveräner Macht, die nur in ästhetischer Form existieren können. Der Doppelband analysiert Geschichte und Gegenwart der Figurationen des Politischen aus kultur- und medienwissenschaftlicher Sicht. Dieser interdisziplinäre Ansatz bietet eine bisher beispiellose Vielheit an Perspektiven auf die Ästhetik der Politik.
Im ersten der zwei Teilbände wird gefragt, wie Politik in der Gegenwart sichtbar und wirksam wird. Ein Schwerpunkt liegt dabei auf den Kategorien des Raumes, des Körpers und des Bildes. Der zweite Band erforscht in Anlehnung an Kantorowicz‘ Modell der »zwei Körper des Königs« die historische Dimension politischer Figurationen. Diese ist durch die Französische Revolution markiert, in deren Folge Figurationen königlicher Herrschaft durch solche der Macht des Volks bzw. der Nation abgelöst wurden.
