About this product
- DescriptionThis book examines and critiques secular modes of self-writing in Ethiopia that put considerable emphasis on the enactment of national/ethnic identity leading to an equivocal situation wherein the ethos that binds people has been greatly eroded. Its analysis demonstrates that such modes of thought are flawed t only on the tion of the human subject, but also inappropriately position the religious or the theological. The book argues that a theological turn generates theological resources for a social horizon of hope - for the apotheosis of the bond of togetherness - which risks thinking politics in an altogether different way beyond the eth-national logic. This, as the author argues, paves the way for the possibility of a new political subject and the reinvention of politics.
