Comparative Theology after                 “Religion”

Show Summary Details

Preview

The term “religion”—or perhaps even more so “religions”—regularly operates as a “signifier that allows us to forget [its] ‘worlding,’” systematically obscuring the history of its production. The question that still remains unasked might be posed as follows: “Is it possible to imagine a theology of religious pluralism that is not uncritically or unselfconsciously wedded to the category ‘religion’?”That is precisely the question addressed in this chapter.

Keywords: Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak; religion; theology; religious pluralism
