The Monstrosity of Christ: Paradox or Dialectic? is a conversation between John Milbank and Slavoj Žižek (edited by Creston Davis) that “concerns the future of religion, secularity, and political hope in light of a monsterful event—God becoming human. For the first time since Žižek’s turn toward theology, we have a true debate between an atheist and a theologian about the very meaning of theology, Christ, the Church, buy online viagra the Holy Ghost, Universality, and the foundations of logic. The result goes far beyond the popularized atheist/theist point/counterpoint of recent books by Christopher Hitchens, Richard Dawkins, and others.” [description is from the MIT Press site] This book is slated for April 2009.


 

John Milbank and Adrian Pabst are speaking at the TELOS annual conference on 17th Jan. 2009 in New York. From the conference poster: “This conference will consider both the new administration in Washington, and political shifts abroad, viewed in light of TELOS’s long-standing concern with “administered society,” expansive bureaucracies, and the role of the ‘new class.'” For more information, click here to download the event poster.
