About this product
- DescriptionIn The Neighbor , three of the most significant intellectuals working in psychoanalysis and critical theory collaborate to show how the problem of neighbor love opens questions that are fundamental to ethical inquiry and suggest a new theological configuration of political theory. Their three extended essays explore today's central historical problem: the persistence of the theological in the political. In Toward a Political Theology of the Neighbor, Kenneth Reinhard supplements Carl Schmitt's political theology of the enemy and friend with a political theology of the neighbor based in psychoanalysis. In Miracles Happen, Eric L. Santner extends the book's exploration of neighbor love through a bracing reassessment of Benjamin and Rosenzweig. And in an impassioned plea for ethical violence, Slavoj Zizek's Neighbors and Other Monsters reconsiders the idea of excess to rehabilitate a positive sense of the inhuman and challenge the influence of Levinas on contemporary ethical thought. A rich and suggestive account of the interplay between love and hate, self and other, personal and political, The Neighbor has proven to be a touchstone across the humanities and a crucial text for understanding the persistence of political theology in secular modernity. This new edition contains a new preface by the authors.
