Abstract

It is worth reflecting on why much of what now fits under the more general heading of the “turn to religion” in philosophy and critical theory may be described as organized around high profile discussions of Paul by Jacob Taubès, Alain Badiou, Giorgio Agamben, and Slavoj Žižek. On this score, it still seems safe to claim that precious little unpacking of this phenomenon has yet occurred, above all because such labour requires sustained interdisciplinary work that is (let’s face it) not easy in the increasingly routinized, professionalized, streamline d “research time” of the contemporary academic. Without mourning or lamentation, however, it is nonetheless true to claim that most philosophers still do not know the basics of the past fifty years of biblical scholarship on Paul.
