How did Critical Theorists respond to the challenge of early twentieth-century theologians to diagnose and address an acute sense of modern crisis and political impasse?
The following lecture, entitled "Inverse versus Dialectical Theology: The Two Faces of Negativity and the Miracle of Faith," seeks to provide a partial answer to this complex question by comparing Theodor W. Adorno, Walter Benjamin, Hans-Joachim Schoeps, and Karl Barth as readers of St. Paul.
Hent de Vries is the Russ Family Professor in the Humanities and a Professor of Philosophy at Johns Hopkins University, where he also serves as Director of The Humanities Center.
