Abstract [en]

In this essay I draw attention to conceptual similarities in Walter Benjamin's and Theodor W. Adorno's reflection about language, with special attention to Benjamin's 1916 essay about language as such, including its theological impulses. In Adorno's case, I concentrate on language theory as it comes forth in relation to his philosophy of music and the supposed language-character of music. I argue that this particular connection between Benjamin and Adorno is largely unexplored in the literature, and I show that their conceptual affinities have far-reaching consequences for a proper understanding of Adorno's philosophy as a whole. Music is of fundamental importance for Adorno's critical theory, and this fact points to an intricate entwinement between materialism and theology, stemming from Benjamin's theory of language. Thinking of music as secularized prayer means to emphasize that music relates to reality in a way that resembles the logic of Benjamin's understanding of a pre-lapsarian language of divine names.

Abstract [en]

In this article the Swedish Lutheran heritage is discussed in relation to its historical connections with secularism. The question is raised whether and how constructive and liberating Lutheran theology can be developed under such conditions. In order to deal with this problem, Michel Foucault’s late philosophy of truth and subjectivity is discussed. A proposition is made for a constructive theology that does not retreat from secularism but is critically involved in the secular through an emphasized confidence in God.

2017 (Swedish)In: Kyrkohistorisk årsskrift, ISSN 0085-2619, Vol. 117, p. 17-31Article in journal (Other academic) Published
Abstract [en]

This article starts with a historical truism: ”The Reformation is more than Martin Luther.” This is obviously a truism, and yet, especially in the Scandinavian debate, Luther still dominates almost everything that is said about the Reformation. This is not only a confessional problem, but describes a more general cultural habitus. First, the article sets out to show how the discourse about modernity has hijacked Luther and the reformation. The main example is the French philosopher Michel Foucault and his critical understanding of modernity and truth, which he occasionally relates to Luther and protestantism, as if these were pivotal modern phenomena. Secondly, an attempt is made to give a broad and multidimensional overview of the early Reformation in Germany and Switzerland, focusing a variety of persons, places and events. This is done in dialogue with the example of Foucault, in order to provoke a discussion about the plurality of Reformation compared to standard images in our time.
