Abstract [en]

Altizer, the academic bad guy, the metaphysical modernist, the nutty, repetitive preacher who, in our first encounter, told me all about his actual meeting with Satan—is he an apt thinker for the current planetary crisis? This article argues he could be. By relating Altizer to Gilles Deleuze I am not arguing that Altizer is inspired by and in that sense belongs to a vitalist or hermetic thought tradition but I am arguing thatwhen read through a Deleuzian lens, material aspects of his metaphysicsstand forth, as does the contemporary relevance of the peculiar stylethrough which his metaphysics materializes.

Abstract [sv]

De tre 1900-talsmystikerna Emilia Fogelklou, Martin Buber och Emmanuel Levinas menar alla att nära möten med andra männ- iskor leder till Gud. Men hur är det med den anställdes möte med församlingsbon? Kan det vara nära och innerligt samtidigt som det är ansvarstagande och professionellt? Eller har Emilia Fogelklou rätt när hon skriver att andligt ledarskap inte passar de djupast religiösa?

Abstract [sv]

Vad händer med vårt tänkande när vi tvingas låta allt det andra—det som inte är Gud eller människa—komma till tals? När vår relation till tingen, växterna och djuren förändras, hur ändras då vår idéhistoria, vår kultur,vår tro? Det är frågor som Petra Carlsson ställer och diskuterar i denna artikel utifrån en alltmer alarmerande klimatkris.

Abstract [sv]

Att vara pastor eller präst är att vara satt mitt i den andliga gemenskapen men samtidigt något lite utanför – ovanför eller vid sidan av. De mest direkta, hudlö- sa och ärliga mötena människor emellan sker ofta mellan jämbördiga trossys- kon. Att vara pastor är visserligen att leva i vänskap och samtal, men det är också att bära ett ansvar för gemenskapen och att snarare få förtroenden än att själv anförtro sig. Går det då att själv fördjupas i tron, att leva öppet och sökande i den andliga gemenskapen och samtidigt leda den?

Abstract [en]

Starting in Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari's critique of the image of the face of Christ, the article experimentally explores the notion of the cross-event as machine. Through an encounter between Deleuze and Guattari's concept of the abstract machine and Russian avant-garde artist and thinker Liubov Popova's notion of construction, the article explores the multiplicity rather than the singular identity of the Christ-notion; the ongoing creative aspect rather than the origin–telos spectrum. Thus, the article invites non-theological thinkers to throw new light on a theological dilemma: the exclusive and authoritarian aspects of the Christ figure. Finally, alternative images of Christ to be found in the history of Christianity are suggested.

Abstract [en]

This article discusses Michel Foucault’s analysis of Edouard Manet in relation to contemporary theology and sacramentality. The article argues that Foucault’s work on Manet instigates a move away not only from earlier forms of art or earlier forms of thought but also away from an overarching idea of Christian thinking, and towards a materialist and immanent approach to art and thought as spiritual practices. It is an approach that highlights invisibilities, or what the article names ‘non-places’, in the tangible and material processes of artistic representation in Manet’s work. By doing so, the article suggests, Foucault’s thoughts on Manet not only precede ideas in what goes under the name of new materialism in contemporary theology but even opens for a purely material understanding of sacramentality.
