Political Theology

  • Jordan E. Miller
Part of the Radical Theologies and Philosophies book series (RADT)


This chapter begins by engaging with Carl Schmitt’s political theology as parasitic on the modern nation State. The normative claim in this chapter is that political theology should be founded upon a non-theistic concept of religion which has at its center the ability of ritual to construct the bonds of social solidarity which in turn is the seat of religion’s authority and the condition of political possibility which operates through open, critical, and creative imagining of the way the world might be––subjunctivity. Subjunctivity is the technology that builds society and the world.
