Just a note that a recent collaborative book with Davis Rhodes — which I’ve previously mentioned on this site — is now available as full pdf.Filed under: blog posts [blog posts]

Go directly to the marketplace, to the communication centers, and preach the gospel. That’s the Pauline way. Christian mission was media innovation, media inhabitation, media expansion. Its message and its medium are—as one Catholic media theorist obs... [blog posts]

On the occasion of the recent dust-up over Milbank’s new book, I thought I’d note some theoretically explicit remarks from Deleuze and the Naming of God: Analogy may articulate an order that is peaceable to some, but there will no doubt be th... [blog posts]

I would like to call attention to, and to give some context for, a recent book that I did in collaboration with the artist Davis Rhodes. The book consists of two (physically discrete) parts, each of which includes my text in relay with images of Rhodes... [blog posts]

Apologies for the self-promotion, but I thought that readers may be interested in knowing that a paperback version of my Deleuze and the Naming of God: Post-Secularism and the Future of Immanence will soon be coming out. In other words, this book has beco... [Shameless Promotion]

I appreciated the reading and comments of my previous post, and wanted to respond a bit more formally — though also perhaps too tangentially. The operation that my criticism tried to indicate is one that often seems to be associated with the need fo... [blog posts]

October 24, 12 AM

Observing the contemporary theoretical terrain, there’s a certain operation that I find rather striking — both in its valorization and in its predominance. We might call this an operation of resuscitation, revival, or rejuvenation (though, for... [blog posts]

In the spirit of Dominic Fox’s comments, I thought I would post a few thoughts about the recent discussion between Anthony Paul Smith and Pete Wolfendale. One of the things that’s striking to me is the call, on the part of Accelerationists, for i... [blog posts]

Readers might be interested in a series of posts being written by David Driedger, who is of course a long-time participant at AUFS. Titled “Excessive Love,” they address the intersection between immanence and Hadewijch. From my understanding, ... [Hadewijch] [immanence]

Given a book such as this, which does so much so well, to approach a response by way of summation or comprehension is to risk binding oneself to cliché or dilution. Better, perhaps, to just pick up one of the singular insights with which the book is litt... [blog posts] [A Non-Philosophical Theory of Nature Book Event]

Just wanted to call the attention of AUFS readers to the fact that the second post of Amaryah Shaye’s excellent series is now up over at Women in Theology. But if you haven’t already, then first check out the initial post. “Reconciliatio... [blog posts]

This is just a quick announcement that my book, Deleuze and the Naming of God: Postsecularism and the Future of Immanence, is now out. Which is to say that physical copies have appeared, that it’s available on Amazon (at least in the US and the UK),... [Adorno] [Deleuze] [immanence] [Shameless Promotion]

I can’t claim to have followed all of the debates surrounding the Accelerationist Manifesto (excerpts in italics in what follows). But I have remained intrigued by it—certainly intrigued enough to make my way to the accelerationist event this past wee... [blog posts]

September 6, 11PM

Esposito’s Living Thought is an excellent book. My own experience of reading it was shaped by its themes of life, antagonism, and genealogy (of the origin). Esposito’s discussion of these themes also pushed me to think further along certain lines, whi... [blog posts]

August 1, 7AM

Just a quick announcement that a book of mine — on Deleuze, in connection with many things, including Adorno, religion/secularism, and metaphilosophy/nonphilosophy — is coming out with Edinburgh UP in December. I’m happy to be able to po... [Adorno] [Deleuze] [religion] [secularism] [Yoder]

May 26, 11PM

Last year, I and several others were involved in an event surrounding Laruelle, mysticism, and contemporary theory. I wanted to let any interested parties know that the book that emerged from that event is now available. Also, for those in the New York ar... [Laruelle]

May 13, 8AM

Below is the text from a recent conference (The Fracture of Nothing – On the Return of Nihilism) in which I recently participated. Though I eventually get to Deleuze & Guattari, and a brief reference to Laruelle, the bulk of the paper ended up c... [blog posts]
