Aika ihmisen jälkeen: Thomas Altizerin teologia ja posthumanismi

Forskningsoutput: TidskriftsbidragArtikelVetenskapligPeer review


This article examines Thomas J. J. Altizer’s “Death of God” theology and its compatibility with the field of posthuman theory, particularly in the work of Rosi Braidotti. Traditional versions of Christianity are usually incompatible with posthumanism due to the materialist underpinnings of the latter. I show how special features of Altizer’s theology can in fact be combined with non-anthropocentric posthumanism —namely, its compatibility with the ideas of materialism and perspectivism. By combining Altizer’s ideas on the self-emptying of God with non-anthropocentric theory, I further show how the combination of theology and posthumanism can have notable consequences for theological ethics.
