The Theological Turn: Scripture and Current Philosophy
May 23-24 2010.
The "Theological Turn" of the last few years has revived an old-time interest in Scripture, and brought it back to the
heart of a philosophical and critical-theoretical field.
The conference will strive to examine the relevant aspect of Scripture and distance it from the “self-understood” and “pre-assumed” of the past: What is the historical and critical significance of this revival? What is the theoretical and ideological implication of the theological turn? What types of academic strategy and politics accompany the revival of interest in the sacred texts? Which new concepts arise from contemporary thinking, and what kind of strategy leading philosophers have adopted in order to decipher its actuality since the Holocaust?
