About this item

In this phenomenological reading of Luther, Marius Timmann Mjaaland shows that theological discourse is never philosophically neutral and always politically loaded. Centering his discussion on the theme of destruction, which is important in Luther's early writings, Mjaaland challenges the familiar notion that theology is a matter of faith and philosophy a matter of reason. By linking Luther to Heidegger, Gadamer, and Derrida, Mjaaland establishes connections between destruction and deconstruction and draws philosophy, politics, and theology together in the light of Luther’s radical critique of religion.
