Foucault, Magritte and negative theology beyond representation
2013 (English)In: Studia Theologica, ISSN 0039-338X, E-ISSN 1502-7791, Vol. 67, no 1, 63-79 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

Recent theological writings on the French philosopher Michel Foucault often mention Foucault in relation to negative theology. This article discusses the negative motion in Foucauldian thinking through Foucault's essay on the Belgian painter René Magritte. On the basis of this discussion, the article sketches a renewed account of negative theology. It is a post-representational account of negative theology in accordance with Foucault's critique of representation, as presented in his Magritte essay.
