Der häretische Imperativ: Überlegungen zur theologischen Dialektik der Kulturwissenschaft in Deutschland

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


Essays on Carl Schmitt, Gershom Scholem and Herman Cohen. The book describes the transformation of discourse in cultural studies, a discourse which after its inception around the turn of the century was also designed to salvage German-Jewish interculturality. This transformation manifests itself in a discourse on political theology (involving Carl Schmitt and Gershom Scholem) through which the disastrous dissociation of the two cultures took its final and irrevocable course.
Translated title of the contributionThe Heretical Imperative: Thoughts on the theological dialectics of cultural studies in Germany.
