  • The Territories of Science and Religion by Peter Harrison
    The Territories of Science and Religion (English, Paperback)

  • Radical Democracy and Political Theology by Jeffrey Robbins
    Radical Democracy and Political Theology (English, Paperback)

    Alexis de Tocqueville once wrote that "the people reign over the American political world like God over the universe," unwittingly casting democracy as the political instantiation of the death of God. According to Jeffrey W. Robbins, Tocqueville's assessment remains an apt observation of modern democratic power, which does not rest with a centralized sovereign authority but operates as a diffuse social force. By linking radical democratic theory to a contemporary fascination with political theology, Robbins envisions the modern experience of democracy as a social, cultural, and political force transforming the nature of sovereign power and political authority.
