about this item

Scholars of philosophy and religion show that including religion as one of the conditions of Louis Althusser's (1918-90) philosophy presents a new periodization of his oeuvre, and explore how that changes the reading of Althusser and the use of his thought in politics and philosophy. Their topics include his religious revolution, the problem of eschatology, between Hegel and Marx: history and theology in the early Althusser, his Spinozism and the problem of theology, from the "hidden god" to the materialism of the encounter: Althusser and Pascal, and battles of nostalgic proportion: the transformations of Islam-as-historical-force in the ideological matrix of a self-affirming West.
